Spring Mini Blog Hop!


Hello thank you for joining me today if you are expecting my usual workdesk Wednesday pic pop back later and I'll have loaded that up too.

First today i am taking part in a Blog Hop organised on ILWS forum to celebrate the fact that we have an EXTRA Mini Catalogue this year so not only do we have all the gorgeous lovely's that this brand new catalogue launched today brings we also have another one to look forward to later in the year also!! How fab is that??!!

Well you may ask what is a Blog Hop?? We all get to together and link our posts in a big circle of inspiration and loveliness, so pull up a chair settle your self with a drink and enjoy.

For those that have joined me from Laura HELLO!! and if you would like to start from the first post you can find it at Alison’s Blog.  Right on to my project.


My project today uses a brand new Stamp set and co-coordinating Punch so nice and quick as the punch does all the cutting out for you.  {lazy moi?}


I made these cake picks for my famous triple chocolate filled muffins that my friends request for every visit and birthday i had my two best friends over this week so i thought i would pretty up our cakes with these simple picks.

I used another new punch the 2-3/8” (6cm) Scallop punch to punch the base out of pink pirouette DSP from the Subtles Stack one for each side of the cocktail stick.  I then stamped the cupcake frostings from the Create a Cupcake Stamp Set in rose red with perfect plum sprinkles, and then stamped a cupcake case in crumb cake with a perfect plum ribbon.  Both were then punched out with the Cupcake Builder Punch and mounted on to the Scallop Circles, i finished off the picks with a tail of pretty in pink grosgrain ribbon.


I hope you like my project and will continue with the Blog Hop the next blog on your stop is Sara and if you would like a full list of the participating blogs then head back to Alison Enjoy your hop i am off to hop round everyone else’s blogs now
