Pile It On #20 - Shabby Chic

This week at Pile It On! our theme is "Shabby Chic" and we're looking forward to seeing your projects. If you're unfamiliar with the "Shabby Chic" style, there's a nice definition at the Card Concept

We're sponsored by Paper Sweeties and they have a fabulous prize of $20 to spend in their store! Aside from their fun stamp sets, the store has a wonderful array of sequins, twine, and seam binding.


The wonderful artist Debbie (a former PIO DT member!) says of her store:
"The Paper Sweeties LLC stamp line was created based on my passion for everything paper, glue, ink, glitter … and whimsical girlie charm! The original design concept for the line of dolls with outfits and accessories was created in June, 2010, and follow up sets with beautiful frames, labels, banners, sentiments and lovely images followed! I officially launched the business in August, 2012 — what a proud day — a dream come true for me!"
