Cupcake Bound

here I made a cupcake card for the dessert I am in on justcards. the cupcake stamps are from stampin up as is the saying. inks used are from stampin up also in choc. chip and pretty in pink. the pattern I got in a swap. the ribbon i a scrap I had here in a little basket I keep just for ribbon that can be used again no matter how small it is. the icing on the cupcakes are done twice and cut once and then I popped them up with foam tape.

Sweet Desserts

Tags, Tags, and more Tags

I got tag happy as i did more tags the last few days. these are kits that was sent to me in a swap from stampintaggin when the group was on yahoo awhile before it shut down. I never knew how much fun it was to make tags until now as I always thought it was boring but making these one doesn't have to put alot onto the tags at all. on the tag that has 2 tags on a small and a big one. in the one corner is a cardboard corner that has scrapbook paper on it. I sanded the edges down also.these can be used on scrapbook pages in the future.

Wooden Frame

this is a wooden frame that I bought a while back. I did this for a secret sister here where I live. I used sienna brown paint to paint the frame and the used torn scrap of paper plain and pattern and decoupaged them on. after it dried I put another coat of the decoupage on it to seal it. after it dried I lightly put another coat of the paint over it. Now I will be getting this wrapped and ready for my secret sister.


here are 2 tags I made from a kit from a swap I was in along time ago when stampintaggin was still around. I even have more to make also which i will show you as I amke them.
