Mini House Cupcake Carrier

If you have a friend in need of a little cheering up, you can take the cupcake shop right to them with this cupcake carrier. Take a peek inside this little cupcake shop and you'll find a rather sweet guest. I know he's sweet, because immediately after taking the photos, I ate him.

It makes us happy to make them and give them away, and it makes others so delighted to receive such special gifts.

InVue Software Update

Yesterday we released a small update to the InVue software. The next time you open your InVue software the update will be automatically applied. While many of these changes were small cosmetic enhancements and bug fixes, there are a few changes you may notice. Here is a list of the changes for this update: Endpoints Show on Open Paths: An open path is a line that does not connect. Sometimes while designing you may create an open path and want those points to join to form a shape. In this case you would use the join two points tool. This change shows the endpoints on an open path while in the join/connect two points tool so you can easily find the open path and join it. Alignment Options for Page Horizontal/Vertical: You will now find options in the alignment drop down box for Page Horizontal and Page Vertical. This centers your object in the horizontal or vertical center of the page.

Antique Lock Mini Album Cutting Files

Treasured Memories Antique Lock Mini ...

We've spent the week talking about favorite things. Now it's your turn to make something pretty centered around your favorite things. This antique lock mini album can hold all of your favorite memories and will be a treasured keepsake. I love all things vintage and I tried to incorporate that look into this project. I used several layers of ink on my album cover to make the paper look antiqued. The Pazzles Pen Tool and the metallic papers I used also added a few extra details that make this album one of a kind. I'd love to fill this album with happy childhood memories and give it to my mom for her birthday. I can cut as many additional pages as I need if I'm feeling inspired to keep going.
