Baseballs and Cupcakes

I have a project up on the a2z Scrapbooking blog today with some other team members. The February challenge starts today, hop by and check it out.

I decorated the top of a bakery box with a Diamond Stencil (get on kraft with red ink, then I put a panel together of Baseball brads from the Eyelet Outlet that we have in the store—shaped in a 7 for the birthday girl. 

I turned all the baseballs the same direction so it looks a little neater and I planned ahead to make sure the size would be right for the number of brads I had in the pack. I used a sturdy cardstock because these are metal brads and adhered a red piece of vellum to the top and to the bottom. Then I just adhered the panel to the top of the kraft stenciled piece.

That's my all-time fave cupcake—Salted Caramel—from my fave local bake shop called Cake, Hope and Love. I had to go to the bakery to get a bakery box for the project, didn't I? And was it my fault that they had my fave cupcakes? And that some came home? lolol

Hope you'll join in our February Challenge so you can have a chance to win!

Happy Thursday!


  1. I love that you used the baseball brads for the number on the card Char!

  2. Yes you did have to pick up a cupcake at the bakery to support local industry. I'm sticking to that story too. I love the card, such a great unexpected creation. I think you hit a home run with this one.


I love hearing from my crafty friends!
