How nice of Angie of Scrapscene to visit my blog and feature one project I did in a hurry - oh gosh this was quick one for my dear old sis..... Gosh I did this as a labor of love for my new niece--- I know I need practice on this part, because I know crafting can be combined with baking. I just need to try those Betty Crocker mixes and buy a Wilton decorating set(its in my wishlist already) from Joann.com and then use Big shots to do personalized toppers.. ok I have few months to figure it out --- hmmmm I hope I have time for it... its crazy enough here as it is....
I made 80 fridge magnets for my niece's souvineers, about 25 or so centerpieces (gotta love those Sizzix daisy dies using foam, w/ some yummy lollipops set in chinese takeout boxes) and the layout which willl be the title page of Jacinta's christening album.
Anyway here is the link:
Scrapbooking & Other Paper Cake Toppers
I had never thought of making a paper decoration to be used as a cake topper until I stumbled across these unique ideas. Any of these would be a fun addition to a centrepiece or real cake at a party! Take a look!
Joanne Yap has a neat idea for decorating a cake. She made a scrapbook page and put it on top of a cake as a cake topper! See photo at left from a Christening party. You can go to Joanne’s blog post here to learn more about it.
This pretty cake topper was actually used on a wedding cake! Photo at right. It was made with vintage elements by Ashley Carter of Goldbug Studios and went on Muriel’s wedding cake.
Here’s another nice wedding cake topper idea by Maminka Girl. In this case, the whole cake is out of paper. What a nice centrepiece this would make for a reception or rehearsal dinner even.
Another interesting idea is to make mini cake toppers for cupcakes like PeptoGirl shows in a tutorial here.

TITLE: OUR JOURNEY
Pardon the picture of this layout -- its been so cloudy and rainy here in OZ and I cant go out to take pics of this layout. Give it the justice it deserves. I am still experimenting on my Olympus and still have not had great success on it--- hit and miss i say!
