delicious die cutting

It's always fun to see a finished project in print. The July CK is hitting the newsstands and you can find my first Dear Lizzy article inside! I answer questions scrapbookers had about die cutting. Wanna sneak peek click here and let me know what you think.
Since I love cupcakes I was excited to use one of my favorite dies from Sizzix to make this cupcake holder. I ditched the sprinkles and topped it off with die cut flowers & some ribbon instead. It's almost too cute to eat... almost! :)
Stay tuned for a die cut giveaway!

I saw this new section in CK! I have to say I'm glad to see your work more in the magazine, your scrapbook pages are awesome and it's always a great pleasure to see them.
I'm sure I will come up with questions!... ;-)

I got that issue a couple weeks ago!!

The column was very good, but I also liked the article you did about using photos sleeves for extra pictures with your scrapbook pages. Such a practical and simple idea, though it never even crossed my mind!! LOL

Love it- it's so funny. I just told my friends this morning that instead of a birthday cake for my birthday next month, I want cupcakes, and I want to decorate them.

Looks delicious!

love the article, will definitely be reading ever issue! Also wanted to say I love the new banner and pictures. Nice to see updated pic of Avery and new little Quincey. They are both soo cute.

Penny Smith said...

Congrats on you new little one!

If you DO decide to have another one, check out www.spinningbabies.com

And remember, even though she seems so "big", Avery is still a baby! I had my boys 2 years apart (only an 8 day spread) and I look back at the pictures and realize, that I DIDN'T realize that my first was still so little too!

Congrats again! What a beauty!

I love my Cricut, and my poor Sizzix just doesn't get the same attention...I guess I need to find a place to buy more dies for it. Thanks for sharing all your bright and wonderful creations! I would like to share a little die cut trick with you that I used to make a fish from the Little Mermaid image... http://mimmersscrapbooks.blogspot.com/2008/06/fathers-da-y-cards.html. I would love to hear yours and anyones comments...sure is lonely on my blog.

Happy Scrapping,

The Boys Mommy said...

Hi...enjoyed your new article in CK! Last month I submitted a question (and it {sigh} wasn't picked). Should I resubmit the same question or will past questions be considered in subsequent issues?

Thanks for sharing your inspiring, creative ideas!

Cassie said...

Mmmm! That cupcake looks really good. I had no idea Sizzix made a cupcake holder...gotta get me one of those.
Love the new blog header, too.

Becky said...

congrats on being in print!!!

Tina said...

Hi there,
I was wondering if you had a choice, would you get the Big Kick or the Big Shot? I have the original Sissix and after seeing what you did am going to go get some of their Bigz Dies, but was not sure which of the two machines to purchase.

I love your new column in CK. I was so excited to get my July issue to check it out!!!

You do such great crafts. I love reading your blog and keeping up on all that you are doing and your family. What a great family!!!

Thanks,
Tina
