Video: Stamped Cupcake Toppers

Happpppppy Friday!  Woohoo!

First – before I forget – the winner of the stamps from the other day is ChristaKC.  I emailed you!

Leslie Lightfoot is hosting the blog week over on Hero Arts this week with a great birthday theme.  She is amazing… I LOVE the page she did today HERE.  And there is a great giveaway today, too.

On Wednesday, I did a video on creating fun stamped decorations for cupcakes.  (And, I must admit – having a job where one of your assignements is to make cupcakes is a pretty good job to have.  Hee.)  I should also admit that Colin actually made them.  He does everything down to cracking the eggs.  He loves to cook!  Wish I could blame the bad icing job on him, but that was my doing. :)

Doing these cupcakes reminded me that Colin will be three in a couple months.  Can’t believe it.  I thought I would dig up the invitation I did for his first birthday party to share… HERE is more info.

And these are the thank you notes we did HERE.  The link shows what the inside looks like – it folds open to show photos.

I haven’t really done any birthday layouts.  Even with the girls.  I find birthdays so tough to scrap.  Does anyone feel that way?  Maybe it is because of all the crazy colors and things in the photos.  Not sure.

Well, I hope you all have a great weekend.  I am looking forward to getting ready for hosting the blog week next week at Hero!

Hugs.

  1. Oh my gosh these are so darling! Pretty nifty icing job I’d say! :-)

    I think ALL holidays are hard to scrap. I’ve become an emotional scrapper rather than an event scrapper!! I came across one of Joey’s handprints the other day. They were so little. I’m wishing I’d done them every year. So amazing how quickly they grow!

  3. Love the thank you card! What a great way to involve your son before he could write his own.

  4. My little girl is a March 06 baby too :) (the 28th)

    Adorable invite and thank you cards!

  7. Thanks for the card idea. I did my very first layout of my daughters 18th birhtday party. I will have to get the photo of it on my blog. I got the idea from a card I luv. I am celebrating my birthday today. :)

    Love your cupcake toppers (I was actually impressed with the icing and figured you’d bought them somewhere)… and what a helper Colin is! Are you sure he’s only turning 3? He sounds so ‘advanced’. ;) I know what you mean about birthday pics. I was looking through mine when you asked if anyone had any you could use and they all looked too busy to me. Kids unwrapping gifts on the floor with grownup knees and feet in the background…
    Hope you have a great weekend and I’m looking forward to ‘Jennifer week’ on the HA blog. :) :) :)

  10. Hi Jennifer…

    Is Colin a St. Patty’s Day Baby? I was too and my Dad use to dye my hair green and take me all over town when I was little…

    I have been scrapping for almost 15 years and have NEVER scrapped a Christmas. It’s very intimidating to me! Love the Thank you cards you made.

    See ya!

  12. I often turn birthday photos to b/w and scrap a bunch on a page, wallet sized to get them done. OR do a birthday mini boOK!!

  14. Cuuuuuuuuute! Thanks for all the links!

    Love that thank you card – it’s wonderful! I have a hard time scrapping anything – lots of good intentions but have a hard time putting them on paper.

  16. Terrific video, Jennifer! Love the cupcake toppers! I can’t believe my “baby” is going to be 4 on Tuesday. Time seems to be flying by.

    I am really looking forward to your week over at Hero Arts! Toodles!

    Thank you for the video – I caught it on the HA blog – love visiting there and I’m *sooooo* looking forward to your week on, again – it’s always wonderful! Best wishes, thanks for the creative boost and encouragement that’s always waiting here!

  18. i LOVE the thank you card! I am filing that one away in my brain to use this year!

    I’ve done quite a few birthday layouts of my granddaughters. Some of my favorites are scraplifts of your layouts in various CK publications. If you looked through my scrapbooks you’d recognize a lot of your work!

  20. What about changing the photos to black and white? Then you could keep with the same thing of that years party.
