The highlight of my day!

Well yesterday anyways! First I had a patient tell me I looked 25, I'm pretty sure she's my new BFF. And Sally and Jo of IOD (Iron Orchid Designs) announced their new Design Team and I was over the moon to be added to their team! I've known the girls since their digital days, then they hit the big time by being added on to design for Prima and are now currently releasing with Creative Imaginations! You can see some of their new releases at ACOT, but they're probably at your favorite LSS as well ;) They are some of the sweetest girls I've met and I'm totally jealous of their sisterly bond!
Make sure to follow them on their facebook page, they do quite a bit of giveaways ;)

I channeled my inner Martha today and decided to make my favorite frosting from scratch! Growing up we usually had German Chocolate cake I think for everyone's birthdays! Here's the frosting recipe I used! I did cheat and make my cake from a box because I completely ran out of time. I also saw on another blog that parchment paper works as a liner, especially for me because I can NEVER find cupcake liners in my Wal-Mart! I took an extra step and made it crafty though. You knew it was comin' right ;) I sprayed toothpicks with Helmar's VC Vellum Adhesive and wrapped the coordinating tinsel and also used die cuts from Pink Paislee's newest Hocus Pocus line. I then cut strips from my favorite paper of that line (wink, wink) and used my new Martha Stewart punch to make a unique edge. I then wrapped my paper around my cupcake. You could also mist your toothpicks if you don't have tinsel.

ETA- What Peytan found. He didn't hide the evidence well ;)

A little Sweet

I was lucky enough to collaborate with Pink Paislee on their Summer release of the Sweetness line!  After sniffing the new smell of paper and rolling around it in for a little bit, I then felt better about cutting it up!  I used Helmar's Liquid Scrapdots, because I wanted a lot of dimension and I didn't want to see anything behind what I was doing, because the font and the hearts are super small.  This is where the clear liquid scrapdots can really come into play with crafting.  You can get any dimension that you want and it dries clear.  This makes it essential for the little elements of your scrapbooking or crafting.  You'll be able to see how small some of these elements are and how high I was able to get them off my mini-album.  I also used my chipboard viewfinder wheel from Magistical Memories and pearls from Kaisercraft. Along with Tim Holtz crackle paint and glimmer mist.

Thanks for looking!
