Hey There Cupcake!

October 18, 2010

Hi! Kirsty, Monika and Kerryn here to share a little bit of cupcake love with you this afternoon!

Kirsty :

Upon receiving my KasierCraft parcel this month, I immediately fell in love with this gorgeous die cut Patterned Paper from the KaiserCraft Candy Lane range, but didn’t want to hide it away in one of my albums!

I simply mounted the giant cupcake onto a piece of thick card, and turned it into a birthday countdown calendar to be displayed around my house for whoever’s birthday is looming!

I  also mounted each individual section of the cupcake icing onto black cardstock and then mounted these sections using some foam dots to really give the calendar some dimension.

By adding velcro dots to the backs of each of the number tags, my children are able to change the days themselves, and excitedly count down to their special day!

My daughter just loves this collection, and I don’t have any problem seeing why. The glittery specialty papers are just amazing! I have used two of them to make this banner to hang on my daughter’s door. The chipboard letters are also from Kaisercraft.  I have painted them white and then sprinkled glitter on them.

Items used: Treats Glitter PS121, Tea Party PS122, Paper pad PP832, Chipboard letters CB108

Kerryn :

Like Kirsty, I too loved the cupcake diecut.  The only problem was trying to figure out how best to use it!  To emphasise the cupcake pattern, I have cut sections from a second diecut paper and mounted the pieces using foam tape.  I have then built my layout keeping the use of patterned papers to a minimum so that I did not lose the cupcake amongst it.

I cut elements from the Sherbert patterned paper to give the pink cupcake “case” a lift.

I added lots of dimension with foam tape and raised embellishments.
