Sunny Days

Though this morning is sunny, I am referring to the Sunny Day scrap kit from SU. In my workshop last night we did a couple of projects using paper from that kit. I love the bright colors!
First we made a cupcake favor bag using a small kraft bag. I purchased the bags at Michaels and cut them down to 4" tall. The base of the cupcake is tempting turquoise that started out 3"x5" and we cut in a half inch on either side of the bottom. You can score lines to make it look more like the folds on a cupcake liner. For the top, I cut out a template by hand that we all followed. All the circle centers have dazzling diamonds glitter on them for sparkle. Our cherry is a 1 1/4" circle of regal rose sponged with rr ink.

We also used the Party Hearty set and regal rose wide grosgrain ribbon. Oh the party favors you can make!
Here is a shot of the side of the bag.

Inspired by the card on page 164 of the new catalog, we made this cute birdhouse card...

For the bird, we used the Cheap Talk set. The pumpkin pie textured card stock came from the same scrap kit.
These were fun to create, I hope you enjoyed them!

On a different note: do you do a lot of shopping on-line? Do you use Ebates?? If not, you should, because you could be getting rebate checks in the mail just for shopping.
