Etsy Inspired Tribute

Saturday, June 18, 2011

Today starts a fun challenge, but it brings and end to one of my FAVES in blog land. It's the very last Etsy Inspired Challenge. For details please read the EIC post today.     

Before I get to that I wanted to let ya know about this week's shop and my project. We are featuring "Homes & Weddings". They offer stylish wedding and party decor.

I was inspired by this item & all of the yummy cupcakes that fellow DT member Savannah has been featuring on her blog.

My project - "Cupcake in a Box"
I love to bake & whipped up more cupcakes.
(tip: for more fluffiness add butter to store bought cake mix).

The kraft box is from Michaels & the chipboard cupcakes are from goodies that I received from Glue Dots. I added a doily to the box for more fun. They yummy ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. And a popsicle stick is holding up the chipboard in the cupcake..whew.. :)

I have had sooooo much LOVE for the Etsy Inspired Challenge and the concept of it. It has always been my all time FAVE!

These ladies are not only talented but they have been great cheerleaders, offer great crafty advice, and are so super sweet & understanding of family commitments. I [heart them] them all to pieces.

Ashley & De are two wonderful design team leaders. Thank you both sooooo much for all of your kind words and support.

Also sending hugs to Jackie, Emily, Kerry, Ruby, Carole, Sherry, Joy...and my two dearest EIC buddies Savannah & Virginia. I'm such a geeky fan of their work. :)

Since this is the very last EIC Challenge I'd love for all of my bloggy friends to enter. You have 2 weeks to create a project. The due date is - July 1st.

Two prizes this week:
Shop Prize - Business Card Holder from Homes & Weddings
Special Prize - Mystery Grab bag of prizes from EIC sponsors.
