Good Sunday morning to you and since it is Sunday that means another day of inspiration from a delici-o-so cupcake photo...... YUMMY!

Please play along with us by being inspired by our photo and make what every you want - you don't even have to use cupcake stamps!! - although this week I was kind of stumped and almost went the cupcake route!! When in doubt - use a cupcake - you c
an't go wrong!

After MUCH consideration, ie - asking everyone what they were using - I decided to use the Basic Grey Junebug paper since it has all these beautiful colours in it and make a notepad!

On the kraft paper I stamped the grid stamp from Off Beat Backgroundbackgrounds from Waltzingmouse Stamps in Vintage Cream ink, just to make a subtle background image.

Then I glued two of the June Bug designer papers on top. A few of the June Bug pages have some beautiful patterns that are pretty easy to cut around so I decided to go that route and trimmed around some of the flowers with my Cutterbee scissors and using my Tombow glue, glued the design on top of the designer paper.

Of course I used Papertrey Ink's Take Note stamp set for the sentiment and cut it out with the Spellbinders circle nestabilities and then trimmed it with Basic Grey June Bug buttons.

These little notepads are so simple to made and the 6 x 6 designer paper pads are all co-ordinated that it is pretty easy to make up a few note pads with a 6 x 6 Basic Grey pad!!
