Hello! I hope you are all well! And that you all had a wonderful christmas! I have been not well most of the time because of a nasty cold that made me feel dizzy. But I just worked slowly and enjoyed the magic of christmas nonetheless. It was such fun to watch the excitement of a sweet little girl. And I made the most elaborate cake ever! But first some projects to share. So totally out of the season, these Halloween Tags were published in the CARDS October 2011 issue:
You can only see one of them in this photo, but they are featured in a video, too. You'll find it here. And that issue can be found here. Yummy Pink Paislee again. I thought these would make nice little treats.
Next is a card from the Paper Crafts special issue Card Creations: Get Inspired:
Love that Hero Arts Lace Background stamp! I embossed it with gold embossing powder.
And the last card for today was featured on the Paper Crafts Connection blog yesterday:
This one is from the new special issue Cool Tools for Card Makers. Oh, I can't wait to get my hands on it! There will be a Cool Tools Week on the Paper Crafts Connection blog and Moxie Fab World (Jan. 9 -13). Don't miss it!
Now THE CAKE. I was close to giving him a name. So much time spent together. Haha. I got this new German magazine called Sweet Dreams and it is full of delicious cakes and desserts. We have been drooling over its pages. Ok, now that's not a pretty mental picture, sorry. Usually I just look at those amazing cakes and end up making the simple ones, but this time I decided to jump right in. And chose one of the most elaborate ones. It took me hours. Because I had to bake four different cake bases. Then make toffee for the filling. And then the toppings. But it was worth it. Proud me:
And a closer look at THE CAKE:
We were 8 on Christmas Eve. But we only ate a quarter of THE CAKE. Death by chocolate. I froze the rest. So yummy, but so much!
Long post. I hope you are still here? Thanks for reading! And thanks for visiting!
Hugs and Love,
