Hey, Cupcake

Don’t forget this week by entering a comment in the Time for Tea & Time to WIN, you could WIN one of the templates from “Creations by AR”!

TO BE ENTERED INTO THE CONTEST for one of Adela’s TEMPLATES, make sure you comment in the Time for Tea & Time to WIN!

, so that I can gather all of the comments together.

Okay, onto the fun creative stuff!  Adela has made so many cute templates, here’s just one more, called the Cupcake Card & Box Set:

Adela supplies you the template in both the SVG and the PDF formats.  So if you have a fancy smancy digital cutter (I used my old 6″ cricut with SCAL), you can get this done a bit faster, but otherwise, you can certainly use scissor power.

Open up the card …

to put in a birthday invite info or a special sentiment for a birthday friend, a gift certificate!

Okay, so what if you don’t want a birthday cupcake or even a card, you’re more into little boxes to hold treats … check this out!

I’m thinking of a gift for a friend, for a teacher at the end of the year, or maybe as a favour at a shower, filled with some chocolates or chocolate covered Pomegranate seeds.  I dunno … anything chocolate covered, really.

Can I say just how easy these templates are to put together!

Celebrate with CAKE!


Well, I’m not kidding you when I say it’s been a crazy week, with some craziness on the schedule for the foreseeable future. DH is travelling a bunch. I’m not complaining, in these nutty times, he has a job that provides for our family, but I miss my second engine in the evening. Sick kids on & off, but not too sick, thank goodness.

Oh yes, oh yes, happy news for me & a bit of a shocker still–I am part of the Design Team over at Paper Craft Planet.  I adore that sight, the crafters are AWESOME & all really sweet & as I’m getting to know them more, they are a HOOT!  Love IT!

I thought I would celebrate my fun PCPlanet news with one of my favourite Challenges out there!  Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge.  This week’s challenge, #58, is the Audrey Hepburn/Gregory Peck classic princess movie, Roman Holiday.


I found the template for the Cake Box from Ruthannzaroff.  I used 2 pieces of 12×12 Patterned Paper from Robin’s Nest Scrapbooking (Cream Paisley, I believe).  I was able to cut 8 cake pieces using that template.


Glossy Stock White Paper was run through the Cuttlebug with Scalloped Nestabilties.


The Filigree Stamp set is from Anna Griffin & the circular stamp is from SU! (retired) Papa’s Pocket.


Each piece would be a fun little party favour.  Kinda’ looks “showery/weddingy/princess-tea-party-ish”.  DH thought it kinda looked like a hunk of fancy cheese.  <insert head shake/eye roll here>  Anyways, think of the fun you could have, change the embossing powder or make it a chocolate cake, or a layered cake by printing off the template in various sizes!!   Honestly, it really is not fidgety to make.  If you like me you can try to pick at it for 10 minutes when ever you have a chance.


Okay, enough fun, onto reality of dishes, puppies, kids, oh I forgot Liam’s good pants have to be hemmed for tomorrow … hmmm maybe two sided tape would do until I had a chance to sew them properly …
