Cupcake Wrappers

Cupcake wrappers are the trend right now and they are so easy to make!  Scrapbook paper makes a perfect cupcake wrapper and you can add a scallop to the top or use a punch to add a special design.

This is a wonderful touch to any wedding or party!  It certainly takes those yummy cupcakes to a whole new level!

Canvas, Mod Podge, and Scrapbook Paper!

Today I saw an inspiration in a magazine that I wanted to re-create.  This adorable bird in a nest on a branch.  I created mine a little differently... I used paper to create the branch (they used marker) and I added a banner!  The one I saw was just white above the bird.  (Glimmer mist would also look nice I think)

The greatest part is that everything is handcut so no need for anything special.

Supplies I used:
For the Record Paper
Bazzill Black Cardstock
My Minds Eye Hip Hooray
Canvas Corp Canvas and mini clothespins
Mod Podge

Playing with New Paper!

I am loving the news lines we got in!  Today I made this card for a challenge and I really enjoying mixing lines and mixing companies!  This is using Basic Grey Sweet Threads and Echo Park Summer Days:

National Scrapbook Day!

The biggest day in a scrapbookers life!  We had such a great time at the store!  We offered 25% off all merchandise and the Pioneer Valley Scrapbooking group held a crop.  People were having so much fun shopping and getting all the new goodies that came into the shop the day before!  We also had make n' take tags that everyone was having a great time making!

Make n Takes the teens made!  Great job!

Thanks everyone for coming out and celebrating with us!!  We had a GREAT time!

Twist Craft Fair!

We had alot of fun at Twist!  We had lots of kids and adults join us for make n' take tags which was a whole lotta fun!

Why drive to the other side of town when you have the totally corny VersaCart to lug all your crafty stuff?
