50's Party with Cherry Cola Cupcakes

Hey there crafty friend-

The summer is flying by! I have been very busy with kiddos and parties. You know I love to create fancy party things so I've been in heaven. a few weeks ago my mom turned 60. I know some may think a 60's theme party would have been in order but we couldn't help but celebrate her favorite era, and the year she was born 1955. A 50's party it was. We had hot dogs, hamburgers, fries, soda bar, and a banana split bar. I was in charge of  the martinis and of course the cupcakes.

50's Party

I made cherry cola cupcakes topped with cherries and striped straws. They tasted just like cherry cola! The color scheme was pink and teal with black and white checked accents. The records on the table were cut with my Cricut from black glitter cardstock and topped with pink polka dot labels.

50's Party

I stacked the cakes on a few different cake plates and added the paper jukebox you see in the background. It looked amazing!

We also had a 50's themed photo booth. I cut a few props with my Cricut using the Nifty Fifties image set,

It all came together beautifully and my mom was very happy.

It's a Lalaloopsy Party!

Hey Crafty Friends-

My sweet little princess turned 6 years old a few weeks ago and of course we had to do it up right. She requested a Lalaloopsy party so it was my time to get crafty! My favorite thing to do is the cake display. Here's what I came up with....

Lalaloopsy Party

Her favorite character is Pickles so she had to "present" the cake. I made a mixture of vanilla and strawberry cupcakes decorated in white butter cream and flower sprinkles.

Lalaloopsy Party

The cupcake toppers were cut from purple glitter cardstock and a black glitter cardstock button was glued in the center. Pink bakers twine was tied around the stick for a little extra detail. I placed her Lalaloopsy minis around the cake plate to add to the Loopsy feel.

For the cake topper, I cut out and stamped her name on the banner and attached to bakers twine. I strung the banner between pink paper straws and stuck it in the cake. Of course a number 6 completed the cake. It turned out wonderful and she loved every minute of her special party.

If you have any questions about instructions please leave me a comment and I will get back to you.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. Come back again soon for more inspiration.

Have a great crafty day!

Mouse Cupcake Toppers

Hello Crafty Friends-

I have a fun project to share with you today. One of my best friends had a big birthday last week so what do you think my contribution to the party was? Yep......CUPCAKES!!! It's kinda my thing.

I used my Cricut Explore to cut the Mouse SVG file at approximately 2.51 x 2.39" from black glitter paper. I also cut another mouse from black cardstock to create a backer. I sandwiched the lollipop stick between the two mouse ear cut outs using a strong adhesive and foam tape to make space for the stick. I used white satin ribbon for the bow and glued it to the ears. I  then baked vanilla cupcakes in red/white and pink/white polka dot liners and topped with homemade white icing. I sprinkled the cupcakes with crystal sugar then stuck the toppers in!

And this is what they looked like on the complete display! Super cute huh? I was very pleased with how they turned out. I hope you like them too. I am going to start taking custom orders for cupcake toppers if anyone is interested in ordering. Please message me if you have questions.

I want to take a minute to welcome all my new followers. Thank you, thank you for your support.
Please check back often for more inspiration!

Have a great crafty day,
