I had a lot of fun with this blog hop theme–Hello, Cupcake! I use a Pazzles Inspiration personal paper cutter. It comes with it’s own software. You can design your own creations from the start. So if you like to be original, Pazzles is the machine for you! I am still quite new at it. Maybe six short months. So there is a lot I have yet to learn to do with this mighty machine. Pazzles does have quite the learning curve, but it is so worth it as it allows me to be original.

Making cupcakes is pretty easy. I decided to take the theme and the techniques I have learned so far to make a Cupcake Birthday Party Kit. Although the main pieces are not original ideas, I “drew” each piece from scratch in Pazzles. (They are patterns that I created, not files or tracings from others. That would be wrong.) However, I think you’ll find a couple totally original pieces: the Treat Box and the Game Piece. I am happy with how all pieces turned out (or I wouldn’t show you). I hope you enjoy this “Cupcake Birthday Party Kit.” I am offering to sell the cut file. As I write this, the file is a WPC file. This is what Pazzles uses. However, I am working on converting it to SVG. Please let me know if you have questions or suggestions on the file development and/or attainment.

Because there are a number of pieces in the Kit and thus quite a few pictures. I think a video will make viewing more enjoyable. However, if you would like to see still photos of the Party Kit, go to my fan page on facebook. If you like what you see while you are there, I ask you to “like” my page.

Without further ado, I present the “Hello Cupcake! Video.” I love the song! And I sure hope that you do not get distracted by my adorable assistant! I know he takes the cake, but please try to stay focused on the subject matter!

To be eligible for the parting gift, become a follower of Krista’s Paper Cafe and leave a comment on this post. For this hop’s blog candy–I’ll ship anywhere!!
