Cake Love

I had a few minutes spare today so I wanted to create a fun layout for my Family Recipe Album even though I don't yet have the details for the page.  If I am going to get the album finished on time I need to have some blank pages ready to just insert the recipe and the story that goes with it.  I pushed myself and made a pink page ... my least favourite colour!  I started by just grabbing a few matching supplies and limited myself to just that.  This is going to go in the dessert section and I have made two, one for each album.

Little Yellow Bicycle 'Cupcake Love' papers
I lightly tacked the white rectangles of card on the page so that I know where the information will go.  Once I have it printed out, I can easily remove my white cards and replace them.  I used lace, ribbons, 
embellishments from the paper range, brads, thickers, and a few sheets of Bazzill to finish this layout.  It only took me about 20min to put the page together, but I like it.  I tied a knot in the ric-rac to put on the title and I loved how it formed a heart shape.  Purely accidental!

Sometimes it is nice to see what we can do with only a few supplies and a few minutes!  So another page for the recipe album is done.  Oh, and my Great Aunt emailed me back and apparently the 'Mayonaise Cake' i spoke about in the previous post is absolutely delish and moist.  So we should not judge a recipe by it's ingredients!
Enjoy your week,


  1. the cupcake embellies...and maybe light mayo would be Ok!

  2. Such a sweet page with lovely colours and I'm impressed what you can do with 20 mins! The album will be great.

  3. LOL Mandy. Normally I take AGES, but I found it really quick when I limited the supplies I could choose from!

  4. Me again... Just wanted to say congrats about winning the giveaway on Shimelle's blog.... You go girl!!!


Thanks for taking the time to brighten my day :-)
