Torendi bakes a cake!

Hello! Today I have a Torendi + Lawn Fawn card! I used Torendi's new kit "Paris in Bloom" and Lawn Fawn's new set "Bake Me A Cake". The new Torendi kit is Sassafrastastic and so awesome!

I also decided to participate in Waltzing Mouse's first sketch challenge! So fun!

I paper pieced the cake plate and three different tiers of the cake with Sassafras paper. The star topper is paper pieced too! A tip for paper piecing "Bake Me A Cake": make sure to cut the edges of the tiers a little longer that way lining it up is easy. I actually made a video of this, and guess who didn't press record? Blaargh to me! I will do another one soon! :)

I absolutely love the stickers that come in the Torendi kit. They are so fun! Also, I created my frame by using my Spellbinders labels 9 die to cut out the window and then popping that part up on some foam adhesive. I like doing this and always forget to! I just might have to more often!

Here is a pic of the full Torendi "Paris in Bloom" kit. It is an awesome kit! Make sure to check it out!

So does this every happen to you? You've been creating, but the stuff just doesn't feel right; it doesn't feel like "you". Well that's been happening to me for a while until the last two days, and I feel so much better! I think I just needed to create for creating's sake and not for a publication or a contest or what I think other people might like. It makes it so much more fun! I'm rambling, but I am just glad to have my "mojo" back, as people say, and thought some of my crafty buds out there might understand. :)

  8. Oh I totally can relate! I haven't had time to create something "just for fun" until today. Felt so good!

    LOVE this card, it's so happy and fun -- just like you! :)

    And! I can relate to not pressing the record button when doing a video, too! The worst time? I *thought* I was pausing it, but here I was never recording in the first place. So it started recording instead of pausing. I happily ate lunch, answered phone calls, did some more work, went back and pressed the pause/record button to do the video... Then when I went to download it it took forever...like almost 2 hours! I couldn't figure out why...then when it finally finished downloading you can imagine how I felt when seeing an endless video of the top of my empty desk! GAH! :)
