Sweet Little Treat!!

Greenbean over at the Cricut Message boards has had me waking with visions of the sweetest sock cupcakes dancing in my head!  This chocolate cupcake was cut from Basic Grey Indian Summer - Acorn paper. The cherry is a piece of ribbon tied in knots and tucked down in between the rolls of the socks.

After cutting the wrapper, I ran it through my crimper to give it the look and feel of a real cupcake paper!

I used My Cricut to cut the pink Prism Cardstock envelope.  The middle of the circle tag on the card was created in print shop and cut with my fiskars 2" circular punch.  I cut a 3" flower cut from Accent Essentials.  I used Prism Cardstock for the base of the card, pink & brown cupcake paper was cut from Doodlebug's cherry chocolate dot and the frosting is white Prism cardstock. I embossed the frosting! (it's hard to see in the photo) Pink button is from BoBunny. 

Here's the finished gift!

I will post the SCAL files for the cupcake wrapper, card and envie as soon as I figure out where the file went, how to find it and how to upload it! :)  Newbie to Blogging, Cricut, and SCAL...3 strikes in Baseball isn't a good thing..... I'm hopeful that I'll get it posted! Stay tuned! :)  Enjoy your evening! ~Rhonda

WHOOHOO! I think I figured out how to share the SCAL files!

For the Love of Sharing Recipes!

What a way to share treasured recipes!!

Recipe Folio Set
Folio & 4 Recipe Cards

I absolutely love the way Bo-Bunny's Kitchen Spice Theme Set came together with Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Recipe Folio and Recipe Digital Stamp set to create this recipe folio!   

Recipe Folio 

Lindsay's template was so easy to resize and cut for this folio and card set!  I used Design Studio and my Cricut Expression to cut the folio.

For the layered scalloped circle, I used my cricut & Accent Essentials to cut 3" and 2.5" scallop borders from Bo-Bunny's Kitchen Spice Set. I printed the 'from my heart ~ from my kitchen' circular digi stamp on Basic Grey's -Happy (pink), and used my new Fiscar's 2" circular squeeze punch to cut! Wow! Talk about perfection! LOVE that punch!   (copy and paste this link to find it!!)

I resized the Heart with buttons using Corel Photoshop II, printed and colored the buttons with  markers then popped it from the inner circle for added dimension. 

I printed the recipe cards on Basic Grey's Designer Cardstock. I used the pink paper from the 'Happy' Set -- I absolutely love the way digi stamps print on this paper!  I inked the edges of the recipe cards with Color Box Fluid Chalk inkpad - Creamy Brown - WOW...Love that ColorBox Fluid Chalk!! ......So SMOOTH and CREAMY!!!

Here's backside view of the recipe cards!

 Here's a link to Linday's Stamp Stuff Recipe folio over at Grafico...  and a link to Bo-Bunny's Kitchen Spice Theme set.

Thanks Bo-Bunny and Linday!! You sure brighten my days!  ~Rhonda
