Cupcakes, spiders, and pinwheels!

Fall has officially started in my neck of the woods but we've had 80 degree weather with much humidity the past couple days. I'm eager to clean up the flower beds and plant some mums. They are calling for rain so we shall see. At least I should be able to get the inside house looking Fallish! We had a whole bunch of gourds pop up all over our garden and compost pile so I'm looking forward to using those!

Just wanted to share with you some amazing things people have made with my cupcake card file. You guys just amaze me with all your talent! I'm so glad you like my files and I love seeing them in action. I'm always on the look out for creative ways to use my files so please e-mail me ( anything you make and I'll publish it on my blog for all to see.

First up Sue seems to like to hog my blog at times. Today is no different! LOL! Just take a look at the great layout she used my cupcake card on. How brilliant it was to use the card base as a journaling spot. It's the perfect way to embellish the page and still have room for the important stories. I also like how she used brads for sprinkles.

She also used my folded photo corners file. Click on the previews below to purchase the files Sue used in this fab layout.

Sue also thought to use just the flowers of the cupcake card file for one of my card sketch challenges. Isn't it great! I just love the glitter center. I need to find some of the black color!

Sue wasn't the only one enjoying my cupcake. Deb took the card to a new creative level by cutting the cupcakes smaller and attaching 3 of them to this interative card. I love the cuttlebug embossing plates she used. Aren't those tiny confetti hearts just adorable. Look closely you'll see she added sentiments to each cupcake.Deb also used my I Love You Card file for the border. Click below to purchase.

I also have put a few new Halloween themed files in the store just in time for you to start getting ready for Halloween. Check them out below. I am especially tickled with the way the spider box turned out. Oh and I'd like to give credit to Elizabeth Charleton for cutting the marvelous pinwheel for me.

Here's a sneak peak of a file coming soon to my store. Update: This file is now in the store! Click on the link below to purchase it.

Gotta go meet hubby for lunch. 2 year old daughter wants Chinese! I like how she thinks! Yummy! Have a great weekend!

I recently cut the cupcake card for my granddaughter's birthday. It was really cute - and the idea to use brads for the sprinkles is positively inspired. I wish I had thought of it, LOL. Sory I did not take a picture of it before it went into the mail.
