Cupcake Crazy Part II

Good afternoon fellow paperholics


At Sugar and Spice we're all a little cupcake orientated, you might have noticed this. When I saw this giant cupcake mould I knew I had to have it, so on my last trip to the USA I managed to find a silicon version, making it easy and light to transport back.

This was my first attempt using it and I think it's come out quite well. And of course, it had to be captured in pictures for prosperity!

I used the cupcake stamp bordered with a stamp from the fancy flourishes set so as to give a 'watermark' effect on this layout. Using a doilly seemed appropriate given the cake theme and the colours, pink, white and brown/bronze reflected the colour of the cake itself. I'm a great buyer of brads, then I end up with boxes of them and using them like icing sprinkles on this layout has given me the opportunity of using some of my favourites from different sets. And I've managed to use two patterned papers, this year's resolution is to get more pattern in my designs.

I hope you like it. Have you got any scrapping resolutions for this year?
