To create my layout I used a fun sketch by Allison Davis at Scrapbook Generation and pulled out as many things I could think of in the cupcake color. As I was creating I kept thinking of more items I missed in my photo (like washi tape, buttons, brads, clothespins, paper clips, pearls & paper frills to name a few).
For my tree branch and flowers I used Doodlebug's new Sizzix Tree with Flowers, Heart & Leaves die. I simply cut the branches apart and pieced them together to lengthen it. For the flower centers I alternated jewels, glitter sprinkles and sequins topped with mini pearls. A little birdie sticker from the Sugar & Spice icon sticker sheet was the perfect finishing touch.
For my title I paired the "beautiful" sticker from the Kraft In Color This & That Stickers with the new Cupcake Skinny Alphas. For my twine bow I was liking how the tails were naturally falling and I wanted it to stay like that so I used a glue pen to adhere it to my paper.
I cut my little birdhouse out on my Silhouette using THIS cutting file and was able to hide the knot for my baker's twine by sandwiching it between pieces foam tape under my roof. For my heart, I used a die-cut from that same Sizzix die.
I hope I've inspired you to take a closer look at the Cupcake color and to try a monochromatic project of your own. I was pleasantly surprised by what a fun challenge it was! :)
