I came across some "super cool" cupcake gift card holders and knew instantly I wanted to try!!
I loved this cupcake from Jakester and went to the link she posted for instructions...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkVm1Tif6gI
I pulled out some retired paper (my sister wanted pinks and reds) and went to town...
I have burnt myself in numerous places and have glue stick glue stuck to my fingers but thought it came out cute!! I need to figure out an easier way for the frosting tho...
Thanks for looking and give one a try!!

the first is a graduation card i made for my niece and a customer! I borrowed the stamp set (Tassel Time, retired) from a friend of mine and ventured to SCS for inspiration! I followed JRMART's card and i just loved the simplicity and used Shimmery White to make it elegant!

Ok Seriously, Can the Big Shot ever get old? UMMMM.........NOPE!!
I have seen these Rag Quilt purses made with the Scallop Square Bigz Die and just had to try it...
Now, I haven't sewn in ages and thanks to my sister for letting me use her machine (which I still need to practice on) so don't look too closely!!
It went quickly because you can cut up to 8 pieces with the Big Shot at time!!
First I found the instructions here at the Chic N Scratch Live website...how cool is this site!!
and got my fabric here from Fabricshoppe at Etsy
I did find the 100% cotton batting at Michael's and with a coupon was less then $2.50!! and there is TONS left!!
Here is the 6x6 page
Now by adding it to a piece of 8.5x11 cardstock, you have progressed your page to fit your needs
Are you a 12x12 scrapper? Then take it up a notch to a 12x12 pc of cardstock!! i left the squares and jounaling blank since i don't scrap this size. I know the hostess does so I will give her the 12x12 page so she can add to it!!
