Live it Up!

I have cake and cupcakes on the brain this week since Michael's bday party is this weekend. Yum. I'm in love with this cupcake from Stampendous! and thought it would be a fun perch for Changito to hang out on! For this page I used the most adorable subject, my friend Heather's baby gril!

The page was created with new papers from the Its your Day line by Nikki Sivils. I will be carrying part of this line in my store, check back later today at The Scrappychick Boutique.

1. Cut cupcake paper to 11.5" x 5" and mat on Java Bazzill cardstock. adhere to left of page. Mat 6"x8" photo on pink Bazzill cardstock and adhere to page slightly skewed. Cut banner out of NS paper and adhere to top of page.

2. Stamp Changito from Stampendous! Changito Sports Perfectly Clear set onto white cardstock approx 4"x6". Mask him then stamp the Stampendous! Cling Cupcake XL under Changito. Color with Copic markers (or preferred coloring medium). Mat on Blue and Java Bazzill cardstock.

3. Stamp "live it up" from Stampendous! Whoop it Up Perfectly Clear Stamps in Versamark ink on white cardstock. emboss with Stampendous! Pomegranate embossing powder. Add small confetti from same set around sentiment and around the Changito piece.

4. Add Stampendous! Dot Sparklers Class-a-Peel stickers in various colors as desired. Adhere Changito piece and tag piece to page. Add some Multi Ultra Fine Crystal Glitter if desired using a Quickie glue pen. (I added glitter to cupcake and banner)

Easy peasy, right? I love adding stamed elements to my layouts and Stampendous! makes it super easy with all the new XL and Jumbo stamps!

Thanks for surfing by today :) -Cyndi
