Hey Cupcake! by Erika Valdez
Supplies: Paper: Die Cuts With a View, Me and My Big Ideas, Ribbon: Simply Grosgrain, Ink: Martha Stewart Crafts, Pens: Sakura, Cri-Kits, Adhesive: Scotch (3M), ZIG Memory System (Kuretake) Other: Kraft cardstock. Tools: Cricut Expression (Provo Craft), Cri-Kits pen holder (Cri-Kits), Cartridge: Rock Princess by Provo Craft, Gypsy Wanderings by Provo Craft, Stamps: Peachy Keen, Pink by Design.
Design Notes: I wanted to make a cute and functional gift for my 10 year old daughter’s friends. I came up with these little sets, they include 10 note cards, envelopes, a mini journal and a mini pen. I had 15 little plastic boxes that I had saved from some floating candles I bought for a party; turns out they were a perfect fit!

Digital Supplies: Kit: Balloony Bundle by Project B Designs, Template: La December Blog Challenge by Nikki Epperson and Lauren Grier (Sweet Shoppe Designs), Software: Pixelmator 1.6.2, Fonts: Waterfall.
Design Notes: I am normally not that good at clustering but found this cute template and ran with it. I really loved the stitching included in the kit and the alpha with candle flame. I thought it was an all around neat way to remember by daughter's first ever cupcake...at her first birthday party.

Editor's Notes: Janine really personalizes her elements by decolorizing them. I love the warm glow and feeling of her layout, achieved by by using a warming filter.
