My first project of the release are these adorable pouches. Perfect for putting goodies/prizes or treats for your birthday party or kids. I left the back open on each one so that I can use them for upcoming birthdays next year. And this month, I made three for my three kids (not making that mistake again like last month! :))

Inspired by Stamping Create A Cupcake Pouch

I bought the template from the Silhouette store and also used our new gingham digital paper in pink to cut it out. I know you are going to have so much fun with this cupcake set! Decorating was so fun! I also have a little peek of It’s Your Birthday set that we will be sharing tomorrow.

Below are close ups of the other two pouches. Smile Each one was made with our new digital paper and printables too.

Inspired by Stamping Create A Cupcake Gift Bags

We’ve had a few birthday parties over the last few weeks for my youngest whose 8. I needed a goodie bag for Lizzi and just loved the way that it turned out.  I also made a matching boy one. These toppers would make great invitations too.

Inspired by Stamping Create A Cupcake Topper

I made each topper with a template again from the Silhouette store and also used our new digital paper. I then decorated my cupcake using the heart sprinkles. The banner behind is from our It’s a Birthday stamp set. I love how the cupcake fits in between the banner.

I adore blue and green together for a boy birthday. I also used the same template as above. All our new stamp sets come with free digital cut files for easy cutting, too. They make stamping stress free and super easy when you have a few on hand.

Inspired by Stamping Create A Cupcake Stamp Sets and card

My last card featuring Create A Cupcake was combined with Vintage Banners, Happy Occasion Sentiments and Whimsical Banners. I also used our Fancy Labels 2 die and a peek at the new digital paper.

I love how you can mix and match with different colors to create all sort of beautiful cupcakes. And then you can dress them up or down! The possibilities are endless! This stamp set has been so much fun to work with over the last few days!

Inspired by Stamping Celebrating 2 Years stamp set

Celebrating 2 Years stamp set was such a fun set to design! What a trip down memory lane for me as I looked back at some of our very first stamp sets. For this card, I used oranges, green and yellows. I love the pop of color throughout.

This balloon was first featured in our The Sky’s The Limit set. Now it comes in two parts so that you can stamp the balloon and base in two different colors.

Inspired by Stamping Celebrating 2 years

I had to design something to feature our first nestie die and designed this pretty frame that fits most of our sentiments. After cutting it out with our Fancy Labels 1 Die, I then stamped “Birthday Wishes” sentiment which can also be found in this set.

Here’s a great CAS birthday card using the Celebrating 2 Years set. I first stamped the clouds using white pigment ink. After stamping my balloons, I lifted them with dimensionals. My littlest balloon is from our The Sky’s The Limit stamp set.

I stamped my frame from this set and then cut the top off to fit along the base of my card. I then stamped “Make A Wish” that is also from this set.

I have one more card today featuring this great set. I also used Whimsical Banners, Creative tags and some Girl Digital Paper too.
