A Peach of a Cupcake

Do you wonder at our ability to change, seemingly seamless, as things around us change?  It's like a fleeting thought we have to make that decision to go with the flow.  For example, new clothing styles or redecorating because you saw something at your friend's you liked.  The decision seems so easy.  Then we have those changes that we just won't budge on or products that we have used for decades & now are no longer available to us & we complain like crazy.  At that point we become "one of those who don't like change."   Hmmm.    Just some food for thought as this week ends and start a new one.

God's rich blessings to each of you.

Happy birthday Denise.

Vintage Cupcake

When I begin a card, most of the time I reach for my scraps.  I'm so proud of myself.  I'll try to post a picture of my scrappy organizer this week.

A month or so ago I challenged myself to make June & July birthday cards using the Create a Cupcake stamp set and/or punch.  These are my last 2 for July.  I do recommend it for a time saver and getting the most out of your stamps.

I think I will goodbye to this set for now!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  If you would like to see something specific, please let me know.  I love challenges.

Best Wishes

Raspberry Ripple & Summer Starfruit color combo!  Striking, don't you think? 
I used the Print Poetry DSP pack - the sheets were 4-1/2 x 6-1/2 so I had to decide how I was going to size it for my card.  I love how it turned out!  I used the Framelits Dies Apothecary Accents & Ovals & the Large Oval Punch.

You Make Me Smile

Have you found that when you are quite upset, creating or just keeping busy, helps to pass the time till the problem itself has been resolved or you come to terms with it.  It's hard to believe there are so many people that do not have the benefit of this knowledge. I'm counting my blessings.

I hope you enjoy my card today.

I've used CrispCantaloup, Early Espresso & Very Vanilla CS, Soho Subway DSP, Window Frames & Itty Bitty Banner Framelits, Artisan Label & 7/8" Scalloped Circle Punches.

Soho Subway

New!  I love this card.  The colors have a romantic feel to them & of course the vintage accessories and embossing folder are a perfect compliment.

Pretty Cupcake

I ran across a similar card by Kasia Jackson this morning & it reminded  me that I have been wanting to create banners using different punches.  I started with  the new Artisan Label but was too big, then I went with the 1-1/4" Scallop Circle.  I like how it turned out.

Happy Belated Birthday Cyndi.

Bring On The Cake

I found this card on Pinterest by Shari Caspers.  The DSP is Twitterpated.  I was never quite sure if I liked this paper in that package as It seemed so "dark" and it gave off a a creepy energy for me..  When I say that aloud I know I should make it a small part of my card and have lots of white surrounding it like Shari's card.  So when I saw her card it just jumped out at me & I just love it!

Thanks for sharing Shari.

Just For You

". . . so you won't have to share."

Happy 4th of July to you!  Here's a cold, thirst-quenching snack to enjoy!

You & Me

I wanted to do some scrapbooking today.  This & That Epic Day DSP was perfect for a black & white photo & I wanted to use the coordinating Washi Tape.  I have such a good-looking nephew and a so pretty neice!  Miss you guys.

Use punches to create a design in your top layer of card stock, then layer a piece of DSP under it & attach to your top layer of card stock using Dimensionals.  Don't forget the embellishments!
