I also decided to participate in Waltzing Mouse’s first sketch challenge! So fun!
I paper pieced the cake plate and three different tiers of the cake with Sassafras paper. The star topper is paper pieced too! A tip for paper piecing “Bake Me A Cake”: make sure to cut the edges of the tiers a little longer that way lining it up is easy. I actually made a video of this, and guess who didn’t press record? Blaargh to me! I will do another one soon! 🙂
I absolutely love the stickers that come in the Torendi kit. They are so fun! Also, I created my frame by using my Spellbinders labels 9 die to cut out the window and then popping that part up on some foam adhesive. I like doing this and always forget to! I just might have to more often!
Here is a pic of the full Torendi “Paris in Bloom” kit. It is an awesome kit! Make sure to check it out!
So does this every happen to you? You’ve been creating, but the stuff just doesn’t feel right; it doesn’t feel like “you”. Well that’s been happening to me for a while until the last two days, and I feel so much better! I think I just needed to create for creating’s sake and not for a publication or a contest or what I think other people might like. It makes it so much more fun! I’m rambling, but I am just glad to have my “mojo” back, as people say, and thought some of my crafty buds out there might understand. 🙂
