A Bright and Beautiful Shower

img_0175

Today I am so excited to be sharing this project with you! I recently hosted a baby shower for a friend of mine and to create all of the party decor and elements I used the DIGITAL Cake My Day Collection!

Everything was pre-designed on my computer and then I sent it off to have it printed on cardstock at my local print shop. It was super fast, super fun to make, and best of all — it knocked the socks off the mama-to-be, which is always fun!

So, let’s get started! What I did first was downloaded the Cake My Day collection from the CM shop. Once the files were purchased, I uploaded them into my software and started to design!

Mi Amor Cards!

Today I want to share with you one of my absolute favourite fun folds for making cards. It’s called an easel fold. Every time I’ve given an easel card to a friend or family member they are always received with such awe and amazement – when really, it’s such an easy card to make!

So, I chose to use Mi Amor for these cards because Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. It’s sort of fun to go all out and make an extra special, handmade card to show the ones you love just how special they are!

As the photos show above – this fun fold will allow your cards to sit on display in a propped up position so that not only does your card front show, but also some of your inside embellishments and any greeting or message you choose to write below your embellishments!

What’s a girl to do when she loves a product collection so much that she just can’t get enough? Make holiday cards with it, that’s what!

Painted Harvest is just stunning with its bright colours and beautiful patterns. It would be a shame to pack it away after creating autumn layouts. The designer paper pack is incredibly versatile and works wonderfully in some fun and funky holiday cards.

Home Decor: Create a DIY Rolled Paper Wreath

When I saw the Painted Harvest Collection I thought of the warmness it exuded.

That warm, fuzzy, comfy feeling of home.

Immediately, I had to create something for my home decor.

I wanted to duplicate the paper wreath in which I created for the current catalog using the Cool Serenity Collection.

Baking All Dressed Up!

Today I want to share with you how I took some baking and dressed it up to be an adorable little welcome home gift for my grandmother!

I absolutely love baking – but the problem is that I’m the only one in my house who really loves eating yummy baked goods. If I bake a cake, it means I’m eating almost a whole cake to my self. So, how I stop myself from eating too many cakes all to myself is I bake cupcakes or split my batter into smaller cake tins so that I can gift some of my baking!
