Sugar 'n Spice Dolls

Here it is!! Are you ready for the second day of previews from Little Miss Muffet Stamps AND a long post for inspiration?! But before we get onto to that, make sure you check out the LMM Blog and see if you were the winner from yesterday - plus you can leave your comment for a chance to win 2 new rubber stamps!

Today the design team is showing off projects using six of the new Sugar 'n Spice Dolls in rubber stamps and - you guessed it - I made another gift set! :D This one features papers by Jillibean Soup called Southern Chicken Dumpling Soup and it was perfect for our Spring Colors Challenge that is currently going on. (And perfect for the season too!)

For these cards, I used the basic same layout and used the Nestabilities dies to help - the mini scalloped ovals for the center. Then I used my new Magnolia fence die that I ordered (well, new for me) and added it as a horizontal element. Finally a few flowers from Recollections and some miscellaneous gems finish it off.

While I was at the scrapbook store buying this paper, I also grabbed a 12x12 version of one that had a bunch of labels on it. So some of those were cut out and after distressing the edges a little I used them in with the mix. I think the cards that have them are more of my favorite - but I'm allowed to have favorites, right?! LOL

As for a favorite in the stamps for today I'm not sure I have a favorite - each of them represent something about my daughters at one time or another and give me a satisfied smile when I look at them. That's what also makes these so fun to color! I was thinking on coloring up a bunch more and using them in my scrapbook pages as they would be perfect for my Little Miss Muffets! :D

Speaking of the girls, today is a huge day for them as they're excited to run in the school marathon! All the grade run around the block, which is about 0.9 of a mile, and the school makes a big deal of it. The weather isn't too bad either so I'm hoping it will be a lovely outdoor activity. Wish them luck!

I thinks that's all my words for today! LOL You've met all the dolls for today ... Vanilla, Paprika, Rosemary, Sugar, Cocoa and Pepper. Plus the Sugar 'n Spice Sentiments are also available but sadly I don't have a card for today... you'll just have to check out this older post HERE and hopefully that count. LOL

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my creations! (Even if I was late in posting - but isn't da' boss allowed?! LOL) So do you have a favorite Sugar 'n Spice Doll from today?
