Angela's Cutters Creek Story

If you're anything like me, you spend a fair amount of time online or in magazines looking at the latest and greatest paper craft products. I love to see what everyone else is working on. It gives me ideas and inspiration. If you are a lot like me while browsing other crafter's works you will undoubtedly find something that you don't yet have but can't possibly live another day without. Is any of this sounding familiar? (You know who you are!!!) Well that is exactly what happened to me when I saw this Lucy Bird patterned paper pack by Imaginisce. But like a lot of you, I no longer have a local scrapbook store (LSS). So what is a desperate paper crafter to do???

I emailed Kim at Cutters Creek and asked if she could get the paper for me from one of her vendors, even though she doesn't carry the paper in her store, she emailed me back the same day with an invoice to order the paper. In just a few short days it was in my hot little hands!
I am sure that I am not the only one surprised that there are still businesses that put their customers first, and still go the extra mile to help a customer out. Kim does that each and every day, not just for DT members but for any and all of her customers. Now I can't promise you she will order every single craft item your heart desires (I'd be in deep trouble with the darling hubby if she did). But if she can she will and that is what sets her apart from the big box stores and even a whole lot of online retailers out there. Kim's customer service is one of the main reasons that I am on her DT. Her reliability and professionalism can't be beat.

All right, even bragging on Kim for now, on to the card details. I used pink, blue, brown and yellow cardstock from my stash. Then I cut a square of the Lucy Bird paper and layered that on a strip of brown cardstock that I punched. I added a larger strip of the brown cardstock on top and then cut three scalloped squares with my Nestabilities. Next I stamped the cupcake six times. Six you ask, but I only see three. I stamped it six times, coloring three complete images and three extra flowers with my copics. I cut the cupcakes out with a circle Nestabilitie then I applied Liquid Applique for the frosting added a little glitter (no project is complete until I sparkle) and set it with my heat gun. Next I filled in the flowers with my Spica glitter pens, cut the three extra flowers out and attached each with a pop dot. To finish off the card I attached each of the stamped images with another pop dot.

If you see anything on this project (or any of the other DT projects) go to the Cutters Creek store. If you can't find what you are looking for, send Kim an email and see what she can do to help!


  1. Very cute! At first I thought the frosting was Flower Soft or Fun Flock...but I love the use of Liquid Applique too! mmmmm....cupcakes!!!

  2. Cute card and great story, Angela! You are so right about Kim's awesome-ness, not only as a store owner but as a person too :)
