Cupcake Craft Challenge - Sketch

This is my second and final Guest Design Team member challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenges and it's a sketch. I always enjoy doing sketches and this one was no exception.

This week we have a wonderful sponsor The Cutting Cafe who is offering the winner 3 sets of their choice! How good is that. The Design Team were given the All About Cupcakes set and I'm sure everyone else had as much fun using it as I did.

Here's my take on the sketch, I go a little carried away once I had got started. When I think of Cupcakes I think of lovely soft colours like the ones I've used.

Supplies Used:
1. Papers - From Scrap Box
2. Card - SU! Textured Card in Barely Banana, Bashful Blue and Pretty In Pink
3. Images - All About Cupcakes Set
4. Ribbon - SU! Pretty In Pink
5. Buttons - SU! Soft Subtles

Blog Awards

What am I like? Here's another Award that I've nearly forgotten about. Note to self: get an award, repsond straight away, that way you won't forget about it. I'd like to Thank Dawn for this one. Thank You so much. The rules are that you have to link back to the person who nominated you... thta's the easy part..... pass the award onto 7 other blogs that give you inspiration and link to them too. These awards have given to most so it get's really hard to pass them onto someone who hasn't received one yet..... So..... I'm passing this onto my favourite blogs: Wendy, Steph, Sarah, Julie, Toni, Cara, and Jolene. Most of you probably already have this award, so sorry but it just goes to prove my point.

This next Award was passed on to me by the lovely Wendy. I pass it on to the ladies above and to Anne, Jennie, Yvonne, and Sally.

Cupcake Craft Challenge - Alter Something

Well here it is, my first Assignment as Guest Design Team Member for the Cupcake Craft Challenges Blog. This weeks challenge was set by Jenny who wanted soemthing Altered, a Chocolate Box perhaps or something like that. Now I was all for doing a chocolate box but that would have meant I had to eat ALL the chocolates first and I'm also sure everybody has had their fill of Hearts for the time being. So instead I altered a box that I've had for ages. It came to me plain white with some sort of crafting goodies in but for the life of me I can't remember what they were. Head on over to and see what fab creations the Rest of the Team have made.

As you can see I've made an Image Box. When I stamp images I like to do a few at a time and put them away. I end up stamping again because I've forgotten what I've stamped and quite often where I put them. Not anymore!

I created some Folder Pockets for the inside to hold my images, you just lift out the pocket and the images come with it.

Supplies Used:
1. Papers - SU Fall Flowers Designer Papers
2. Image - Magnolia's Tilda
3. Flowers - From Stash
4. Ribbon - SU Old Olive 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon
5. Buttons - SU Earth Elements
6. Tools - Craft Robo,
SU Round Tab Punch, Scor-Pal

DCM - Feeling Green

This weeks challenge is to use Green. As much as we want and in any shade. Here's my take, I'm not a huge fan of the colour Green but I can say the SU colours are growing on me. Certainly Celery is fast becoming one of my favourites. While I'm not feeling that adventurous to use just green, I toned it down with some Pretty In Pink.

I need to have my eyes tested so I do apologise if these colours look slightly off.

Supplies Used:
1. Papers - SU Certainly Celery Prints Designer Paper
2. Image - SU Fun and Fast Notes Stamp Set
3. Buttons - SU Soft Subtles
