 "My Human, Ben Salkeld, 
one of the new General Managers 
at the new Jersey Mike's Subs 
in Chapel Hill NC, 
makes the best subs!

GRAND OPENING - AUGUST 17, 2016!
Jersey Mike's Subs
6118-C Farrington Rd
Chapel Hill, NC  27517
Our Ben - General Manager

Had to post....Dave and I are super proud of Ben for working so hard part-time during his college education and over the past year since he graduated.  We are also very grateful that his bosses, Charlie & Clint, saw his potential, mentored him and have given him this opportunity to co-manage their new store in Chapel Hill, NC.  He has invested a lot of time, effort, elbow crease, dedication and love into helping get the store up and running and I know he will treat it like his own!  

Monday night was their Private Opening for family and friends.  It was exciting to see Ben "on the job" and to see so many people coming out to support all of the employees of the new store.  I know it's going to be a huge success!

I just got back from a mini-vacation at the beach and for about a month before our trip, the sand and surf were all I could think about.  So, I decided to create a sea scene outside the window die.  I used some spray inks and water to create the sky background and the waves.  I kept things clean and simple for the rest of the card.

We are still celebrating Paper Sweeties 4th Birthday!  
Make sure and check it out!

Paper Sweeties August 2016 New Release Sneak Peeks

Sunday, August 14, 2016

Happy Sunday!

It's Paper Sweeties Sneak Peek day for our August Release of new stamps and dies!  



Hop along and see what all the Design Team has created using our newest stamps and dies. 


Nancy Salkeld (You are HERE!)

I decided to continue the birthday theme for the Release Sneak Peek today.  I took the cake sweet cuts from the Happy Cake Day Sweet Cuts and used a technique by Kristie Goulet.  I cut the cake out of masking paper and then stuck the negative of the die on top of some cardstock.  Next I stamped the sentiments in Versamark and embossed with white powder.  Then I sponged distress inks over the embossed sentiments.



The "tag" is one of this month's new sweet cuts, it's really a window, but I used it as a tag here.  I flicked watercolor paint on the "tag" before I cut out the cake die.  I added the scallop sweet cut, from Sweet Borders Sweet Cuts, on the bottom. 
I also stuck with the colors in our Inspiration Challenge this month.






Don't forget our Inspiration Challenge is still going on until the end of the month!  Check it out and join in.  You might be our next winner and this month, being Paper Sweeties' 4th Birthday the winner of our monthly challenge will get a very sa-weet prized --- $100 gift certificate to the Paper Sweeties Shop!


Be sure and come back tomorrow, I have a little surprise for you tomorrow, you won't want to miss it! 

For Following Challenges:
