No Calorie Cupcakes using Smoothfoam®

I sure do love a good cupcake, I mean, who doesn't??? Unfortunately my waistline does not like them as much as I do!  The solution is No Calorie cupcakes make using Smoothfoam®.

I started by painting 3" Smoothfoam Balls with acrylic craft paint. I used toothpicks to hold the balls up until they dried.

I used double sided tape to adhere the balls inside the liners, then decorated with paper flowers and ribbons.

For this one I added pearls for the flower centers. I secured the flowers using small head straight pins - this way I can change them out later if I want to!

Valentine Table Decor with Deflecto

I am back from CHA and I had a great time again this year! So many fun things to share with you over the next couple of weeks. 
Great new products and techniques.
Lots of new trends to share.
So much EYE CANDY!! 

Anyway, I wanted to share with you the Make N Take I did over in Eileen Hull's Paper Trail Booth. I have some cute photos of her vintage trailer and the whole booth I will share in another post. 

I felt famous y'all when I got to the booth and people were waiting for me in line to do the MNT. Seriously. Famous. 

I used the new 4x6 Magnetic Frame from Deflecto® and it is awesome y'all - it is curved and it uses magnets to keep the front and back together. But you can just pop it apart and change out the inside, then pop it back together. No kidding - this thing is cool!

See the little silver things in the corners?? MAGNETS - for real. Easiest frame in history. 

I used Little B dies for this project and they are so cute! The flowers, the leaves, the arrows - all from Little B. Thanks to Therm O Web for providing the amazing Sticky Dots for this project. They make it so easy to adhere die cuts like these!
