Cupcakes, right around the corner!
Sale-A-Bration begins on Tuesday, January 22nd!  It's the BIGGEST, BEST sale of the year where you can choose, one free, exclusive product for every $50 catalog or Spring Catalog purchase.  And, there is NO LIMIT to the number of times you can benefit!  If you spend $100 you will receive TWO FREE items of your choice, if you spend $50 on January 22nd and come back in February and spend another $50 you will receive FREE PRODUCT EACH TIME, and so on.  The Sale-A-Bration items are fabulous this year. In fact, the Sale-A-Bration flyer doesn't do any of them justice!  To view the free items, CLICK HERE, on January 22nd.  Remember, the flyer won't be available for viewing until January 22nd when the sale goes LIVE!

Here are few tips on today's project.
  1. I used markers to color in the cupcake image. It was fast and easy to do!
  2. I added a small basic rhinestone jewel to the cupcake top. Can you see it?
  3. The NEW, white delicate details lace tape is so cool!  I added a strip here to bring more texture to the card while mimicking the design on the designer paper. At $9.95 for 3.28' it's a GREAT DEAL!  You can also use the tape as a 'mask'. Lie it down on your cardstock, sponge over it, remove the tape and you'll have the delicate design on your cardstock!
  4. I used the square punch to create the banner tail on the designer paper.
