Saw THIS CARD and decided I had to make it with my Stampin" Up! supplies! Can you see the glitter on the icing??? its a chocolate cupcake
stamp the cupcake on close to cocoa.
stamp the icing on the dsp of your choice and cut out and attache to the close tot cocoa
stamp the cherry on scrap, color, cut out and attach brad and ribbon for the pull
the base/cupcake cup is 5.5 x 3.5, folded in half (this is celery)
I drew a light pencil line along the cocoa cupcake on top of celery and trimmed it diagonal a little wider to fit as a "wrapper". then I ran it trough the crimper
there is no adhesive on the celery. its held together by the pink ribbon.

This is a gift for my mother in law for her birthday. (she's getting it today) Its "loosely based"/ "slightly cased" from a card organizer from Lauren Meader and a project from one of my teammates.
I have so wanted this recipe card set, From the Kitchen of, for like "EVER". I earned it for free with my sale-a-bration goodies. I LOVE FREE STAMPS!!!
there is the box base, 6 sections for the recipe categories (not removable) and 3 recipe cards in each section.
I will be offering this as Stamping Class & Kit. so at this time I will not be posting the specs.
Just need to get some new Designer papers in the house! LOL

This was a Mother's Day and 2 Teachers gifts this year. My Mom got 1 boxed set for Mothers Day (hers is pictured) and 2 lucky teachers got the others. Do you Remember the Secret Garden simply scrappin kit? I hoarded this! So beautiful I could not use it. Finally I had to just give in and use it!
You can get 3 of these box sets out of 1 simply scrappin kits if you are creative with your card decorations and embellishments
Box dimensions are the same as yesterday's post with the baby onsies. I took a scrap piece of card stock folded it, scored some "wings" and attached to to the box as a divider. I lined the box with matching designer paper to give it a "professional" finish and to hide the seams of the divider.
