Thank you so much for joining us on our
HELLO, CUPCAKE BLOG HOP!
You are in for a real treat!
There are 16 Hop Stops after you leave here,
and these ladies are super awesome, creative, and SWEET!
I decided to make 8 - 4" x 4" cupcake card set with a little
"shopping bag" card holder for the set.
|Cards #43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50|
This was a super fast and easy "assembly line" card set to make.
The card base is PURPLE cardstock from Stampin' Up
cut @ 8" x 4" and folded in half.
The larger mat is paper from Me & My Big Ideas cut @ 3 3/4" x 3 3/4"
The purple mat is from Recollections ALL GIRL cut @ 3 1/2" x 3 1/2"
Cricut Cartridge: BIRTHDAY BASH
Cupcake page 58 cut @ 3"
Base of cupcake & leaves cut from K & Company Adhesive Paper Pad
Icing & Cherry cut from My Momenta Vibrant Hidden Hues
Cherry Rhinestone from Prima Go Green Concepts "Flower Centers"
Cupcake popped off of card base with Pop Dots
Cricut Cartridge: TAGS, BAGS, BOXES, & MORE
"Shopping Bag" page 114 cut @ 5 3/4"
Heart tag page 108 cut @ 2 3/4" with mirror / window feature
Silver Heart cut @ 2 1/2"
Ribbon from Stash
Purple flower from Recollections Boutique Fleur Floral Embellishments
Shopping Bag paper is Best Occasions Prismatic Paper Pack
Purple Heart paper from Stampin Up
FOR MY NEXT PROJECT
I also decided to write a little poem and make it into a little book - like a child's book. This was so fun!
I took 6 Size #10 (Business size or Letter size) envelopes, sealed them, and folded them in half.
I adhered the envelope halves back to back with the next envelope and these became my pages for my book.
The pages were then covered with decorative papers and inked around all the edges.
For the front and back covers, I cut chipboard a tad larger than the envelope and covered it with decorative paper and decorated.
Here is the front, back, and all the pages in-between...
The poem reads:
I HAD A LITTLE CUPCAKE
...by Janis L. Lewis
I had a little cupcake
as pretty as can be
It smelled like Vanilla ice cream
it's frosting shining at me
I held it in my hand
and smiled from ear to ear
but then my tummy rumbled
and my cupcake disappeared
|A Child's Year cupcake page 29 cut @ 3 3/4"|
|Birthday Bash Ice Cream page 57 cut @ 3 1/2"|
|A Child's Year page 29 cut @ 3"|
|Birthday Bash Dog page 30 cut @ 3 1/2"|
|Create A Critter Dino page 50 cut @ 3 1/2"|
|Mini Monsters page 40 cut @ 3 1/2"|
