Happy Monday! I hope you are having a good one. Mine started off with the DVR in our bedroom breaking. It will not record anymore. Dish Network is sending me another one but I am going to lose all the show I had recorded on it which is not good. At least I can still watch most of them online though. Last week we also had a new furnace put in our house the other one was 17 years old and only working at 50%. After that I ended up spending a lot more than I should have on the new Papertrey release and am still feeling guilty about it but hopefully once I get the package and start using the things I bought I will feel better about it. I also did not get much accomplished because I had another bad week with my migraines but thankfully I was feeling better this weekend so Emilia and I baked again. This time we made White Chocolate Strawberry cupcakes.
These are the ones Emilia decorated. She also photographed them herself. I think she did an awesome job!
I was also able to make a card to go with them too. I used Jen Delmuro's Sketch this week as the base
This is what I came up with.
I started by printing out the digi Pure Innocence image from Heather Ellis. After that I colored her and the cupcake with Copic Markers then I paper pieced her dress. When I was done with that I did the out of the box technique so it looked like the cupcake is coming out of the oval then I matted it on another oval that was cut from PTI's New leaf cardstock. After that I ran a piece of Tempting Turquoise Cardstock through my Cuttlebug using the Sizzix Dots embossing folder. The PP paper is from Crystal's Sweet Summertime Paperpack #2. I got it here The solid background piece is PTI Melon Berry and Harvest Gold Cardstock. A piece of New leaf Satin ribbon,3 blue brads and machine stitching finish it off.
That's it for now. I hope to be back soon with more to share. In the meantime I hope your week is a good one and thanks for stopping by.
