Introducing: Life Is A Carnival – Patterned Paper Collection

The carnival has rolled into town with the introduction of, Life Is A Carnival Patterned Paper Collection. This paper pad dazzles with a glittering array of fun patterns which include dots, stars, harlequin, hot air balloons, mustaches, and more. All in brilliant Red, Golden Yellow, Turquoise, Black, and White.

Our exclusive heavyweight cardstock paper pads measures 4.25″ x 5.50″. Designed to make A2 card making quick and easy, but can be also used on any of your paper crafting projects.  Our 28 sheet paper pads include 2 sheets of 14 different designs.



Visit the fair any time of the year with SugarCut – CarnivalScape. This beautiful stand alone die from our Sweet Chic Collection offers plenty of fun and whimsical details from a circus tent, ferris wheel, concession stand, carousel and more.  Designed so that the left AND the right ends of the die match up, allowing you to cut a continuous but different orientation of the scene.  This charming border die also has no cutting lines along the bottom edge – giving you the ability to cut this CarnivalScape design to any desired width size.



Ladies and Gentlemen, please direct your attention to the newest addition to our Sweet P Collection, Storybook Circus. This 4×6 stamp set is guaranteed to amaze and delight. You’ll discover that it is filled with amazingly adorable circus characters along with seven sensational sentiments that will help you celebrate all of those fun filled occasions in your life.


SugarCut – Storybook Circus is a coordinating 5 piece die set to our Storybook Circus stamp set (sold separately). Use them together to create quick and professional looking packaging and accents.


The ready made scenes in each of our Patterned Paper Collections always seem to be my favorite.  The carnival scene is an exact match to our SugarCut – CarnivalScape die – which makes creating layers such a breeze.


 I created a quick and simple card with loads of depth and dimension.  I used the SugarCut – CarnivalScape die to cut the ferris wheel out of one sheet and then layered it on top of the second.  I then added glitter on each of the buckets of the ferris wheel for a little sparkle.

I stamped my sentiment from Storybook Circus and then a second time on clouds created with the SugarCut – Whatever The Weather die set.  The sun (also from the SugarCut – Whatever The Weather die set) was created with the star paper from the Life Is A Carnival paper pad.

    This new Circus set is incredible! So unique and totally different! Love the paper that goes along with the set too. You hit this one out of the park! The samples are so ingenious and I feel totally inspired!


  2. Teresa Doyle

    These are all so sweet. What I like most about the Circus is watching the young children’s faces! They are always in awe of the “magic” they see around them.


  3. Bunny

    These are all so cute. They remind me of Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus. Sadly, after 140 years their last show will be in May of this year.

    What fun it is to remember going to the circus. What a great release to bring out the inner kid in all of us. I think this is a winner.

    Oh, how I wish that I could go one more time.


  4. Lainey

    First I must say this set is a must have ! This stamp set is so much like my life when I seen it I had to laugh… My sisters an I always say why is our family like a circus ..so with this said they all 3 of my sisters will be getting a bday card made with this stamp an paper pack Thank You so much for releasing this set!


  5. Sheri D

    When I was a little girl, my sister and I always spent a week on my cousins farm. We always went during fair/carnival week and every night we would go. Oh what fun! And when we got back home, we would sleep on the big screened in front porch and from there we could see the farris wheel still turning. Oh the memories this set brings to me. That was 60 years ago!


  6. Susi

    What wonderful new products that bring back memories of when I was a child. We have a local Spring Fair that we go to each year here in our little town. Such fun, amazing projects by the DT.


  7. carol

    Smiling all over my face in seeing this jam-packed circus themed set! My favourite aspects of carnivals: the atmosphere of excitement and joy that can be sensed everywhere…and, of course, the mini donuts! Amazing DT showcases!


  8. Trina P.

    I went to carnivals more than circuses as a child, but what I enjoyed most were the games. Never won abything big, but just kept trying.
    This is such a fun theme and the DT did a fabulous job.


  9. Laura

    I love the fun at the circus!! Everything from the animals to the trapeze artists. It is truly a unique family fun tradition that I’m sad to see changing so much. This wonderful set lightens my heart and makes me smile and remember the fun!!


  10. Carla Hundley

    Charming card and this
    stamp set looks so fun!
    Haven’t been to a
    Circus in a long time,
    but I always enjoyed
    all the different acts
    showing off skills I
    would never have!

  16. LC

    So much fun! Love the bright colors and sweet images! My favorite part of the carnival is the delicious treats. There’s always something yummy to try and they get you right when you walk through the gate with the amazing smells.


  17. Angela W

    This circus set is adorable! I love the border die, CarnivalScape, too! SugarPea makes the best border dies like these without a doubt. I love the Nativity one from Christmas and it’s special because of what it represents. Today’s CarnivalScape is pure cuteness! Simonne’s cards made with it are fabulous!

    My favorite thing about the circus was always getting to see the elephants. Elephants are amazing creatures and it breaks my heart to hear that they may have been abused in the past.


  18. Hsin-Yi Chen

    This Carnival Set is so Adorable! My kids and I love the Carousel and the Ferris Wheel! These cards are so cute and bring back some good memories!


  19. Jo-Anne

    Cute!! Love how you made an adorable scene with the landscape die. I love those dies!!! I love that we can go as a family to these venues and it’s a good time for all ages. Being together as a family — it’s the best! : )


  20. Andrea Shell

    What a fun release! Love how well the papers, stamps and dies go together! My kids loved the circus, so these products will be great for scrappin’ those memories!


  21. Crafty Math Chick

    I really love the Carnival Scape die, the pretty colors and esigns in the new paper pack and that adorable elephant in your circus set (elephants are my favorites, well, I love puppies and foxes and deer too…). What a fabulous start to this release Wendy! BRAVO!


  22. Amanda Bodine

    So much talent, love all the projects! My favorite thing at a carnival is the rides, at the circus, probably the tight rope act!


  23. Hannah R

    Oh man!!!! The carnivalscape die is amazeballs!!! And I need that patterned paper!!!!

    What I love most about the circus is the excitement in the air caused by all the people! It is infectious!


  24. Belinda

    Hi I love your new stamps and papers! The Chunky Monkey set is perfect for my great niece who’s nick name is chunky monkey. lol I’m going to have to have that one for sure! Do you have a stamp club? Thanks and hugs


  25. Chrisann Majernik

    I used to take my daughter to the carnival when she was small. I loved seeing her face when the animals would come out and do their tricks. She loved the dogs. And, of course, there was cotton candy. Really fun stamp set and accessories.


  26. Gilda (McStamper)

    Love the circus set and the cards are so cute and creative. The fun of the circus for me was watching my children have fun and then my grandchildren. Sad that Ringling Brothers is closing after so many years and so many smiles.


  27. Irene

    I used to enjoy the rides and games but now as I am older I enjoy the animals and the people. The first time(a long time ago) I went to a circus was Madison Square Gardens to see Ringling Brothers…. It was amazing. Cute circus set and the details on the die are great.


  28. Mary Holshouser

    Love that you have an entire backdrop for the tent and rides.
    The stamps for the characters are darling.
    this will be a fun set to use.
    thanks for sharing so many wonderful projects.


  29. Sharon Roselli

    I love the circus however the carnival is my favorite. The cards with the circus are wonderful but I love the carnival one using the die cut.


  30. Stacey Kowbel

    Wow, so many great things! Love all the cards. I think carnival food has to be the best thing. There are so many tasty things to try, none of them good for you 🙂


  31. Danielle Vincent

    Oh wow I love love love the dies. And that paper! Awesome set today! I like lots of things about the carnival – the ferris wheel, watching the people, being outside on a warm summer night, the greasy corndogs, the ice cream, the lemonaid, hearing the vendors shout at people to try the games.. but…. I guess I’d say the carnival doughnuts are my favorite – Yum!


  32. Katherine Lesh

    EEEEK!!!! I absolutely adore the images, the dies, the sentiments, the fonts everything about this set. I have had a few circus related items in my stash lying unopened for years now. It would give me the opportunity to dust them off and put them to good use (finally) !!!!


  33. Alexandra Madison

    What a super collection! Fun for all ages 🙂 I loved the trapeze acts as a kid. They were daring and graceful, high in the air.


  34. Flo

    The circus themed stamps are cute and the colors used for them is so colorful. I love the circuscape die and the way you can color it or cut it in black silhouette.


  35. Annette Snyder

    So cute! The thing I love most about the circus is the children’s reaction to everything! I love their excitement!


  36. Laura Peddicord

    Going to the circus was a family event. It was one of the very few things that all of my kids enjoyed and we could do together. With Ringling Brothers recent announcement, this set is a great way to keep the memories going.


  37. Julie SL

    These cards are so sweet! I love the pop of colors!

    My favorite part of the circus are the jugglers! They always amaze me with their skills!


  38. Deb Vasel

    Easy question! The food, the smells, and the fun.
    This is a unique set. Don’t think I have seen anything like it before.
