Best Birthday Yet

Best Birthday Yet

At CHA, I stopped at a make and take and got to play with the Knifty Knitter from Provo Craft. So cool! I had been admiring the look of these flowers in a Martha Stewart magazine, so to get one of these to bring home was fantastic! The flowers are larger, so I needed to make the card base 5.5x5.5.” It was fun to make my own embellishment. They are addicting. So addicting, that I have been finding more patterns online. Even one to make a whole blanket! :)

And yes, yarn is as addicting as paper! thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Stamps (Papertrey Ink-Background Basics Diamonds, Big and Bold Wishes, Turning a New Leaf), Cardstock (Papertrey Ink (Stamper’s Select White, Smokey Shadow, Spring Moss), Patterned paper (Chatterbox), Ink (Versamark Watermark, Palette Landscape), Embossing Powder (Stampendous-Detail White), Brad (Basic Grey-Origins), Yarn (Michael’s), Knifty Knitter (Provo Craft)

Its here! Its here! Its finally here! My love for all things baking and cake decorating is huge, so when I saw the sequel to “Hello, Cupcake” was available, I grabbed my copy quick at Amazon.com.

This one is called, “What’s New Cupcake.” Its filled with fun and amazing cupcake designs. The best part about these books is, you can make all of these with candy you would find anywhere. Those ducks are donut holes and marshmallows frosted onto a cupcake. The whole thing was dipped in melted canned frosting. Isn’t that cool? If you are interested in baking, here are some posts of things that I have done in the past:
