I hope you all had a great weekend! We woke up to more snow on Saturday morning :( Well, it is perfect weather for 'baking a cake' which is the theme this month at Creatalicious challenges. Here is the recipe - use at least these ingredients in your project:
- 1 ribbon/bow
- 2 buttons
- 2 flowers
- 1 clip/stich/fastening
- 2 patterned paper
- glitter (any kind)
This challenge is sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs and the DT were provided with images to use. For my project, I used Effie Trinket Sassy 2. I haven't actually read the books or seen the movie, so at first I did not realize she was a character from the Hunger Games. I thought she was a Christmas image because of the poinsettia-like flower in her hair and I was going to make a Christmas card. Luckily, I did a little research and ended up making a bookmark instead - much more appropriate :o)
Here is what went in my cake:
Paper - white card, pale yellow card, 4 papers from MME Miss Caroline collection (the lace is paper too - not sure if it shows).
Image - Effie Trinket Sassy 2 from Sassy Studio Designs coloured with Prismas. She is a full length image, but I cut her off at the knees.
Flowers, buttons & glitter - flowers are a poinsettia die cut by Spellbinders. I put some Stampin' Up buttons in the centers and gave them a spritzing with Lindy's Stamp Gang Glitz Spritz in Blazing Sun for my glitter.
Ribbon/bow - I used seam binding ribbon died with DI scattered straw and milled lavender and added a bow make from gold cord.
Clip/stitch/fastening: I used a magnetic fastening which holds the bookmark closed and in place in the book. I placed a piece of magnet between the image and papers on the top and the other is placed on the inside. I left it uncovered to show that there was a fastening:
Other - flourish is Darrington Corner by Memory box. OMGosh - I have never had a die cut just fall out of the die the way this one did! I didn't have to poke it out or fight with it - it literally just fell out all by itself. I will definitely be getting more Memory Box dies! For this one, I just cut off the bits I wanted as it is a large corner die.
The team created some beautiful projects for your inspiration, so do pop by Creatalicious to check them out. Sassy Studio Designs is providing our lucky winner with 4 digi images of their choice! I hope you will join us this month and I look forward to seeing your creations.
