Cupcake Class!

Today was my Cupcake class, I have been planning and looking forward to this since before Christmas!!! Now you have to know that I LOVE cupcakes!!! I like to eat them (not good), I like to make cards with them and I like them as decoration as I like retro trendy things!!!

Now this is going to be a long post and I apologise!!!!! I have had a lovely afternoon with 6 other lovely ladies. I baked Cupcakes last night and we partook in one with a lovely cuppa!!!

Here is my favourite cupcake book!!!

Here are the little beauties complete with a Malteser on top!

I even had Cupcake coasters and check out the Cupcake table cloth!!! Yes I am Cupcake Crazy!!!!

Here are the cards we made, first one is a DL size, I did this size on purpose as I always opt for square cards so thought I would go long!!!!

The cupcake has been paper pieced onto Sweet Always designer paper and layered onto Chocolate Chip card, bit of doodling and a malteser on top!!!

Next up is a Cupcake shaped card covered in Sweet Always papers and then I have concertined the paper to make like a bun case at the bottom, A rhinestone brad holds the sentiment in place.

We decorated the inside with a tiny cupcake!!!

Next up is a desktop calendar. I got the style of the calendar from my upline Monica when she initally used the truck from Loads of Love, I thought a cupcake would look fab on the end so adapted it. The flower is stamped with the Sale A Bration set Polka Dot Punches and punched out with the 5 petal flower punch

I had a prize draw and gave away a Polka Dot Punch stamp set tied up with gorgeous Choc Chip Double Stitched grosgrain!! The lovely
Diane won it and she was so chuffed bless her!!

Talking of Diane, here she is with Vicky, they are concentrating from the look of this!!!

And here is the aftermath!!!!

I really enjoyed it girls, thanks for attending, hope I inspired you and please check out my sidebar in the next few days for more classes over the next few months!!
