Hey, Cupcake!

Red carpet time. The world premiere of this big budget production. The paparazzi are ready and waiting, the critics are sceptical, but the faithful fans are just happy to finally be here for the big reveal.


If you enjoy my tutorials, you'll be happy to see that I have added "tutorials" section on my blog. Just click on the links on the sidebar. Makes it much easier if you're looking for something in particular, or just browsing. I'll be updating it with some more links soon, there are a few slideshows that I just need to put up in a public format. Enjoy!

More Scrappin' time in 2009

Tuesday, January 13, 2009


I confess, I have seriously ignored my own personal scrapbooking for a while. I am on a mission this year to complete at least 52 layouts (yes, that's one per week) in 2009. I'm not sticking with a strict plan, but this month I'm focusing on pages about the little "quirks" in our family that might be forgotten. Like the "One Bun Wonder" nickname that Jessica has earned.

Stick with me, I'll have more to come!

Do you like Swingers? I do!

Wednesday, January 7, 2009

I absolutely love interactive cards. This one is a re-do of the oldied but goodie, the penny card. A pendulum creates a swinging motion for the front piece. Anything that can be cut out can be a swinger. Here I've made a butterfly, but there are so many other possibilites. How about a hula dancer's skirt, or the head of a teddy bear, or a swingin' martini glass?



Have patience, it's coming!

The response to my cupcake post has been amazing, thanks to all the readers and those who commented. Mwwwaa! Love you all!

The cupcake video tutorial is in progress. It's in the editing stages, and I should be able to post in a week or two. I was in the process of wrapping up another video when I shared the cupcakes, so you'll see the "swinger card" video posted today. Then I can finally get serious about the cupcake video.

Here's a little teaser.....
