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

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
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.
