Keep Calm and Seize the Cupcake ~ Diva Dare Project

cupcakeproject

Hi everyone!  Just a little heads up that I’m hosting the Diva Dare post today over on the Verve Blog!  It’s birthday central at Verve this month with several Divas plus Julee celebrating their special days.  So the theme this time round is “Birthday!”  I’ve been playing with my Keep Calm app this past month and thought it would be fun to make my own little poster!  I actually googled “Keep Calm font” and was able to download it for free! Bonus!  I knew I wanted to use the Seize the Cupcake stamp, but the “seize” didn’t quite look right with the rest of the wording so I performed a little clear stamp surgery! EEK!  This was so fun to make, though :)

Now, you can’t have a birthday post without some props…I was going to make a paper cupcake, but that’s no fun to eat after the photo shoot!  LOL  So I went to our cupcake store here in town and picked up some lemon cupcakes (YES, they were delicious! ACK!)  I created little flags for each cupcake, making the one for the birthday girl a little more special :)  For more details, check out the Verve Blog…and then join in the fun!  You could win some Verve dollars!  Thanks for visiting!  And remember, carpe cupcake!

Wonderful color scheme! I love the black accent. Now, how long did those cupcakes last?? ;-)

Oh my gosh! This is fabulous! Love all the little details. Love the layout and how you've created your little poster. The patterned papers are gorgeous and those aqua mist buttons just pop! Too cute how you've punched little stars into the banners for the toothpicks. You always pick the best props, too! Aren't those cupcakes delicious? One of my favourite flavours! ;)

That is so fun! Always great to find a free font just when you need it. I love the green, aqua, and brown combination.

One must have props you can eat ;) and if it is lemon I'm all over it! Darling birthday project.

*Drool*! Those cupcakes look scrummy, Diva! Did I ever tell you that lemony desserts are my favourite over chocolate anyday?! ;D
Oh I have to find that font! We have a sign in our spare room (craft studio/music room) that says 'Keep Calm and Drink Tea!'
Fabulous project! I hope you enjoyed that project after taking the photos *wink*
Hugs!
