Cupcakes Forever

Here is the card I made for this week's Cupcake Craft Challenge. I love the sketch. And given this is my last week on the design team, I had to use a cupcake image.

I would like to thank all the wonderful ladies on the CCC Design Team for all the fellowship and inspiration. They are all so fantastic and I feel truly blessed to be part of such an awesome group.

Supplies: Lockhart Cupcake image, Studio G sentiment, Orange dotted patterned paper from Stampin Up, My Mind's Eye plaid patterned paper, Taken With Teal and Chocolate Chip cardstock from SU, Ribbon and buttons from Papertrey, Martha Stewart border punch, Nestabilities, Copics

Things That Go Bump in the Night


Here’s a cute little goodie bag I made for this week’s Cupcake Craft Challenge. It’s my favorite style … cute and simple. I whipped this up after getting home from shopping for fall d├ęcor for my house. I bought some pumpkins and some orange cloth napkins and I spotted these yummy chocolate covered pretzels that had orange icing drizzled on them, so I picked up a container of them as well. I considered adding more embellishments, but I wanted the goodies inside to be easily spotted.

Be sure to check out what the other design team member’s came up with for this week’s challenge.

Supplies: Image, sentiment, and bag are from Papertrey, patterned paper is retired Stampin Up, ribbon is from Hobby Lobby, Martha Stewart border punch

Buttons and Stitching


Wow ... has it really been almost a month since I've posted on my blog?? I sure wish my work schedule would settle down a tad to give me more time to craft.

Okay, onto the challenge. This week we were to use buttons and stitching on our creations, so I pulled out my mat pack and paper piercer and got my faux stitching on. Don't you love this adorable cupcake chef image? My sister bought her at a stamp show and sent it to me. (Thanks SO much, Joy ... I absolutely love her and I hope you liked the thank you card I sent that I created the same day as I received the happy mail from you)

Get this ... the patterned paper on this card I received **free** from eclecticpaperie with my order. Daisy sent me 24 sheets of various Crate papers. Yup, 24 sheets. When I opened my pakcage, I was like ... I know I ordered quite a bit of paper, but surely it wasn't this much. lol. So, I made this card to send her thanking her for her generosity. I suspect she checked out my order history and was like this girl has a papercrafting addiction, so we owe her an extra large helping of patterned paper love.
