It’s been a hectic week. Just one of those weeks where everyone needs to be in a different place dressed in a uniform (or some other kind of ‘special’ clothes) all on the same day at the same time. So I made cupcakes. And, because I like cute things, I made my cupcakes cute using my new goodies from Lifestyle Crafts. These would work for really any occasion, like Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day, or, like today, just Friday.
Here are my goodies…
I got to play with letterpress paper, the Quickstik (super love), and the new detailz dies in banners and flags. The new detailz dies cut AND emboss at the same time. They cut clean and the embossing is very pretty. The paper is nice and thick and the embossing shows up well. And the Quickstik…? Well it’s genius. You can use it to pick up tiny pieces (has a little sticky tip), place your items, and poke out the detailing on your dies. Love it. I can see lots of uses for this thing. I even used it to thread the baker’s twine through the banners!
Back to cupcakes. First, let me say that I am a cupcake purist. I like white cake and white icing. Like wedding cake. And you can’t beat wedding cake. Second, a cupcake serving size is not one cupcake. Please. You need at least two. So my cute cupcake bunting uses two cupcakes. So you have to eat them both.
Taaaa-daaaa! Cute, right? I used baker’s twine and long lollipop sticks. I know they’re white, but I think you can see the embossing detail. I just wanted to use that yummy paper.
Perfect cuts. And love how the die cuts the little slits for the string, too. I used my Quickstik to thread those through. I wanted to use the flag dies, too. Especially the one with the embossed THANKS on it. Very cute. I can see this being used on bunches on things. Quick, cute, and easy. Just the way I like it.
It’s a super sunny day (hallelujah!), so the pictures don’t so these dies justice. Trust me…pretty, pretty, pretty.
