Throwback Thursday

So this post is a year old! But I just wanted to revisit my cake decorating, I really need to get back to that! Aren’t those yellow roses lovely?

It’s been a little while since my last post. We’ve been busy! Not only did we get a small Hawaiian vacation since our last post, but I made another little mini-Album to put the Hawaii photos in, and a cake for a couple of my co-workers. Dr. Ray (nickname) and the boss had birthdays 2 days apart, so I really had no other choice but to experiment with a new carrot cake recipe, and use up some of my “practice” flowers. I just sorta threw them on haphazardly, and I think the cake looked nice, in a messy sort of way.

As to the album, it’s not quite what I expected, the colors are very bold, and the artists from Heartfelt Creations are amazing, as usual, but this particular paper pad (Tropical Paradise) perhaps would have been better suited to cards than a mini-album. Oh well, live and learn. That’s the whole idea of this blog, comparing my newest and current endeavors to previous ones, learning and improving as I go (hopefully).

Drop me a line, and let me know what you think. Here is a link to a little video I did of the album:

New papers and dies from Heartfelt Creations!

I’m loving the new papers and dies from Heartfelt Creations, and they will be certainly filling my days with joy! the most exciting new die this week, is the little bicycle!

I love the interactive element of the little gate on the front, don’t you? The first card is from their newest collection: French Country Cottage, and the second is a mash up of the tulips, the little gate from the hydrangea collection, and the stamp of the bicycle is from the French country cottage.
