Cupcakes! Cupcakes! Cupcakes!

Are you ready to see some sweet cupcakes?!? 

Before we move onto the sweets, I want to tell you all how AWESOME Regina is. She has decided to put two little girls on her DT. Both of these little girls are named Kyla/Kylah and they both LOVE to craft. Kylah is my 8 year old daughter. I could not be more thankful for Regina allowing these girls to learn and grow on this team. Anywho...before I get all emotional...Kylah's blog is Kanga's Krafts. Stop by and check out her very first Design Team assignment for The Cutting Cafe. Don't forget to leave some love for her =)

OK!!! Cupcakes is what it's all about this week at The Cutting Cafe
Regina has lots of different cupcake files to choose from. 
I chose to use the cupcake shaker that comes with the 13 Shaker Card templates. It's been awhile since I've made a shaker. Why? I don't know...I love these things! 

I used Martha Stewart microbeads to fill my shaker (purchased at Micheal's).  They are honestly my favorite filling for shakers. The beads are so tiny which is nice because I only have to use one layer of foam tape to raise the plastic. If I use sequin or paper shapes I have found I have to do two layers of the tape. The beads also move a lot easier...they don't seem to get bunched up like other fillings. 


The tag is attached with Fancy Fiber. Boy, is this stuff ever a pain in the booty to work with! 
I like how it turned out though. 

I had so much fun making this shaker I thought I would make another one similar. It's always easier to make a card once you have the papers picked out. Sometimes picking out the perfect paper takes me longer than making the project. SMH. 

The cherry on top of the cupcake comes with the file =)

Isn't this butterfly die cut gorgeous?!? It's one of my favorites from Spellbinders.

  5. I should learn that lesson and make more than one card if I already have the papers out...that's smart thinking! Your cards turned out gorgeous and I love that you used the shaker favorite!!!
