I think I may be onto something here.

Unfortunately for you, that means more notepads!!!  Aaaaaaaagggggges ago I made a gorgeous background. So gorgeous I couldn't bring myself to use it as a background and cover it up, so it has been hanging around waiting for me to find some inspiration for weeks. Here it is.....

Pretty eh? It's made using a set of Stampin' Up flower stamps of Michelle's- I don't own them yet, and they're not current, but I live in hope of coming across them some day! It's sort of inspired by a Craft Stamper article earlier this year.

Right, so..... I came across some very reasonably priced little notepads in the supermarket, just the right size to pop into your handbag, and blow me down, if inspiration didn't strike!

They just needed cupcakes and ribbon!! The cupcakes are coloured with Promarkers to match and glittered with Stickles. I have plans to make lots more for teachers and friends for Christmas.

I'm entering these into the I Love Promarkers blog challenge- Cupcakes and Craftalicious challenge- Anything goes.


Stamps- Stampin' Up- Petal Pizzaz (and a couple of little flowers from other SU sets), Kanban- Fairy cakes, See D's- Swirly alphabet
Inks- All Stampin' Up
Stash- Black gel pen, Clear stickles, Ribbon, Promarkers


  1. Wow! As someone just beginning to experiment with making my own background papers, I think this is totally awesome! Thanks for the inspiration AND the eye candy, lol! I'm now following you on Twitter (@CreativARTitude) :)
