If you’re still holding on to your New Year’s Diet, you might want to skip this post. (Don’t say I didn’t warn you; sweet temptation abounds here!) Today we’re going to look at the “sweet treat” trend. Donuts, cupcakes, and cookies are all big themes right now in the world of paper crafting.

We’ll start our adventure into the land of sugar with some donut cards. There are SO many adorable donut stamps and dies out there, and so many punny sentiments!

I love how Heather used glitter to add sprinkles to her donut. I know the sprinkled donuts usually go first when my family gets together!

Heather made her own little bakery box for the front of the card with some acetate. The box adds a perfect touch to the theme. I just love the sentiment pun!

The play on words with Stephanie’s card makes me start humming in my head. The donut with the sunglasses matches the sentiment really well. the bright colors of the donut paper are so much fun.

The donut on Lisa’s card is so cute and simple. Her use of a tag as a background anchor is so simple and effective. (I am in strong agreement with the sentiment on this card!)

Sheila’s idea for producing a card that looks like an Oreo is so much fun! I would never have thought to use a damask embossing folder to create the texture of an Oreo.

If you’re more of a classic chocolate chip cookie sort of person, this card is right up your alley. Lori’s card reminds us that milk and chocolate chip cookies belong together, just like the recipients of this card!

This adorable card by Emily reminds us that buying cupcakes is very similar to buying happiness. The little polaroid frames and word bubbles are so cute! I really like the different cupcakes she has in the background, too.

Di made this great pop-up card in a box with cupcakes that would be such a treat to receive. I really like the color scheme she uses among all of the cupcakes.

Last but not least, we certainly need to give a nod to the supplies and appliances that help us produce such wonderful sweet treats! Nancy’s card is so adorable and includes some new stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn that will be available in a few short days.
