If It's Groovy Birthday Bash Kickoff!



Everyone loves birthdays right? Well I am kicking off my Groovy Birthday celebration with everyone's favorite birthday treat....cupcakes!

Cupcakes are so cute looking and sure are fun to eat too! They can be decorated in all sorts of ways and are an essential part of any birthday celebration.

Your challenge is to make a crafty project using cupcakes. You can submit anything...a layout, a card, a mini book, or even an altered craft project. It's your choice.  Just make sure you have at least one of these delicious treats somewhere on your project. Easy right?  Then once your project is finished, snap a picture of it and email it to me at janeenbeuchel@comcast.net by Sunday, January 10th and you will be entered into the drawing to win this fabulous prize pack of cupcake themed goodies.


Also don't forget to head back to the If It's Groovy blog to participate in the other designer's challenges as well and have fun celebrating the If It's Groovy blog birthday!

Cupcakes are also taking the scrapbooking/crafting world by storm.  Everywhere you look, you can find cute little cupcake-related products...from paper and stickers to stamps and even little mini books! Below you will find some of my favorite cupcake-themed scrappy supplies to help jumpstart your creativity on this challenge.

First up are some delicious stamps from Hero Arts:




Then this adorable mini chipboard album from Maya Road...don't you see all the wonderful possibilities?
I am going to be playing with this wonderful product this week showcasing some of my favorite techiniques.

Next up are some sparkly, blingy goodies from Doodlebug...I just love this line of glittery goodness!








And finally some fabulous products from one of my favorite companies, Basic Grey.





Have fun creating and I will be back each day with a new technique or tip to share. Be sure to check back often! :)
