Cupcake layouts

I am using up my final papers from the Pier Collection - I just love that collection! This layout is all about the afternoon Penny and I spent in London last year enjoying a cupcake decorating class.
The 'cupcake fun' letters were cut using my new die that Hugh gave me for Christmas for my Big Shot. I know I've got a Cricut, but sometimes it is nice to just grab the Big Shot and use that instead! I was able to cut out some quite thick chipboard for the word 'fun' which makes the letters quite like Thickers.

I was pleased with this embellishment cluster - I based it on one of the pre-made ones that came in the Pier Collection which I had already used.


This layout is, like the other day, based on the Shimelle's Sketch to Scrapbook Page Number 33 where the pattern paper gets a big look in! I liked this paper, but thought it was a bit busy to use as a background - shows how wrong you can be if you use it like this!
I didn't get around to doing any scrapping last weekend, but I have been watching the videos from Shimelle's new class, Return to the Collection, and I am so inspired and itching to get back into my craft room and create! Here's hoping that I can do so this weekend.

That ’busy' papers works great with the simplicity of the design, doesn't it? I remember your cupcake day with Penny and thought at the time what a great idea she had had for her present - lovely to see it all written up and displayed.

I too remember the cupcake day - and especially that snail. I like both pages and agree that cluster is lovely with the layering and sprinkles. But then almost everything is better with sprinkles :)

What a brilliant illustration this post is of the fun to be had from reliving a day whilst scrapbooking it

Two lovely pages to remember what was obviously a great day out for and Penny! I particularly like the cluster you made.

I absolutely love that second layout. The patterned paper worked perfectly with your design. It's so much fun to scrap events like this one---you get to relive it while you scrap!

These are such fun layouts, Becky! I love your title cut from your die cutter. I have a Cricut and noticed the last time I used it that it really needs a new blade. Of course, I never remember that when I'm at the craft store. Maybe I'll go order one online right now...

Looks like you're enjoying your big shot. I must admit as much as I adore my silhouette, I'd never get rid of my faithful big shot :)

Two fab pages, I'm liking those papers a lot. And I agree - great cluster work.
