My Thoughts Exactly August DT Stamp Release and Sweet Shoppe SVG

Aloha!  We are having a fabulous time! It seems like forever since I posted! I have something that I am soooooo excited to share with you today! It is the August release of My Thoughts Exactly Stamps! The Sweet Thoughts set is my DREAM set. Plus the incredible Grillin' n Chillin' set!  The BBQ set is awesome for making guy cards. Ideas have been swirling through my head! If you can't tell or you don't know me very well yet I am obsessed with sweets. Cupcakes, chocolate, sugar, sprinkles you name it I love it. I think that's probably why I named my blog SugarGem! Because Sweets and sparkles are my obsessions! I am so drawn to anything that has to do with sweets it is a little out of hand actually, but I guess it could be something worse! Right?
At least I try and limit the sweets addiction to my paper crafting and not eating the goodies. Well sometimes...... ;)
So enough about me lets get to the good stuff! And here they are

Grillin' n Chillin'
Is that the cutest ANT you have ever seen or what?
 Sweet Thoughts

Are these sets unbelievable or what? I can't even count how many options of sentiments you could come up with here! But that's what is so great if you don't have the time to think of the sentiment Alyssa sends you the cheat sheets! Did I mention they are only $15 including tax and shipping!

I love ALL the sentiments~ Here are just a FEW options
Sprinkled with love
Sprinkled with thanks
Sprinkled with prayers
DONUT let it bother you
Piece of CAKE
Have your CAKE and eat it too
Cute as a CUPCAKE (you could insert the picture of the cupcake for the word too)
SWEET cheeks
SWEET as honey
you MELT my heart
DONUT give up
tooth FAIRY
CAKE walk
DONUT be late
Pretty please with a CHERRY on top(you could also insert the picture of the cherry for the word)
Everything is better with ___________ fill in the blank with one of these -Sprinkles, wishes, cake, pie etc....... Are you starting to see how amazing these are? There are tons of possibilities here!

I just named off 25 stamp options and that is JUST a few! There are so many more it's so exciting to me!!!!! Are you excited yet?
For my DT post I decided I had to use the Sweet Thoughts Collection,
I designed this little SVG sweets bag/box SVG file for the release. What do you think? I made the sweets shoppe large enough to fit two China Glaze or OPI nail polishes in perfectly! It's a very low calorie treat for a friend!  Every woman needs to TREAT herself don't you think? Especially all you moms out there!

What I used for this project:
My Thoughts Exactly Sweet collection
Emma's Shoppe paper collection by Crate Paper from Pumpkin Spice
Nestabilities Labels 4
SugarGem's Sweet Shoppe SVG file Free with purchase of stamp set.
Black Rhinestones
Black Ribbon
Black paper
