Cupcakes For You!

I have some very exciting news to share today!
I am not sure if you noticed it on my sidebar,
but I am one of the new designers for "The Cutting Cafe"
Whoop~Whoop, I am beyond excited!
I have been working with The Cutting Cafe files a bit
as they are a sponsor for The Shabby Tea Room.
The files are so EASY to use and make a gorgeous creation when done!

Plus I love the fact, it gives me a chance to learn to use my "almost" new 
(I have had it a year now) Cricut Explore!
Now, you don't have to have an electronic cutter, 
as they come in PDF files, too!

Our theme for the 21st blog post 
(make sure you visit "The Cutting Cafe Blog" on the
21st to see all the designers projects in one place!) is Cupcakes.

I had intended to do more then one project, 
but we are gone for our anniversary
and I just could not squeeze it in...but, I do love the  project I did!

I have been in a "happy colors" mood lately and I made an adorable
"Cupcake Holder" in bright and happy colors!
This file goes together so quickly and looks like a million
bucks when finished!

It comes with some rings to add around the cupcake placement holes,
but I just could not resist to add that little pompom trim and buttons!

 I made a butterfly and a flower, which I glued to a straw for a cupcake topper.
And of course, everything is better with a bow, 
so I added a colorful one to finish!

Now, I had to tease Regina, 
that it was her fault I gained 10#'s during the making
of this project, 
as it seems somewhere along the way a few of those cupcakes

Now pop on over to 
and look at all the  wonderful inspiration!

Have mercy, I don't know how you find the time! You are a crafting tornado! But you love it and I think it's awesome and I'm happy for you, so big congrats! You picked a darling and delicious first project! How fun! I noticed those cute pom poms right off the bat. Love how they trim up the holes and sort of frame the cupcakes. Speaking of which -- yum! I'd be lucky to have any left by the time I took the photograph. Enjoy your new gig, Diane!!
