My Latest Cakes

Thought I would share the cakes I worked on this weekend.  This is a Bridal Shower Cake I used my Cricut Cake to make the Corset, Letters, Butterflies on cupcakes and Monogram on the top cupcakes.  All of them were cut using Tie The Knot Cricut Cartridge.

This is a 3 Tier Wedding Cake with Fuchsia Roses & matching Ribbon

Made the Cupcake toppers using my Cricut with the Rock Princess Cartridge.

Hope you all like my latest cakes/cupcakes.

Scrapbook Layout- Pirnce Charming

Made this for the Scrappy Moms Stamps Terrific Tuesday Challenge - B is for Boy/Sugar & Spice- This week's Terrific Tuesday Challenge cartridge is a two-for - B is for Boy or Sugar & Spice. We figured to be fair we would give you the choice of boy or girl Lite cart. You can use a similar cut to play along if you don't own B is for Boy or Sugar & Spice.

But since I don't have either cartridges I choose something that is similar to the B is for Boy Cartridge, this cartridge has a onesie with a duckie and also a phrase that says Prince Charming.  So this is what I did I made the onesie from the New Arrival Cartridge, The Crown & Prince Charming Phrase from the Create a Critter Cartridge.


Cricut: New Arrival, Create a Critter
Cardstock: DCWV & Recollections
Embelishments: Studio 18 Rhinestones, Glitz Rhinestones & Gelly Roll White Pen
