National Scrapbook Day Cupcakes


Happy National Scrapbook Day! Today I am excited to be heading off to scrapbook with some friends at a little overnight getaway. I haven't been to a crop in several years so I am really looking forward to this.

I thought for fun I would bring some cupcakes to share at the crop. I made some yellow cupcakes and then while they were baking and cooling I made Happy NSD cupcake picks to decorate them.

Using powerpoint I made little pink circles that said "Happy NSD" on them. For fun I also added a pair of grey scissors (from the webdings font). After printing out the circles I used my large circle punch to punch them out. I glued them to some cranberry cardstock with a glue stick and  then cut them out leaving a thin border. 

To make them into picks I attached small skewers to the back of them with double sided tape and then layered another pink circle on top of the back to finish them off. 

By this time the cupcakes had cooled so I iced them with some pink icing. To get the right color to match the picks I used some burgundy color paste and a tiny, tiny amount of blue. After inserting the Happy NSD picks into the cupcakes they were all finished and ready to take to the crop.

What are you doing to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day? Are you going to a crop with some friends or scrapbooking at home?

Happy NSD to you also. I cannot wait to see the results of your scrapping get a way weekend.

Fun! Hope you get a ton done! I plan on working on organizing my photos, a project I've been working on for a while now. I'm rediscovering photos I forgot about, getting excited to scrapbook them...at some point.

Mary-Lou- Happy NSD to you! I'll be posting what I worked on on my blog.

Hilary- I managed to get four layouts done and organized a bunch of things. I spent a lot of time chatting and watching movies so I wasn't terribly productive but I had a lot of fun. I hope your photo organizing went well!
