Smash the cake… I’ve admired this picture of my friends daughter for a while now. I just loved the Smash the cake photo shoot she did for her daughter’s first birthday. Wish that concept existed 18 years ago (sniff…) Lucky for me, she let’s me play with her pictures and now I get the chance to do girly stuff. Look at that face… Isn’t she adorable?

I wanted a classy but fun look for this page, and really wanted to use texture to give some of the feeling of that cake frosting.

I started by applying molding paste thru a flower stencil, then added 2 different colors of similar hues of my Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays. I’ve mentioned it before, but in case you missed it, I add my sprays with a paint brush to have better control of my prays.

Now the smash the cake was for her 1st birthday, so I wanted to ensure I would have the Happy Birthday small words on the page. I struggled on where to place it for a while, then it took place. I wanted to add just a few touches of black to add some dimension, so I also added this beautiful embossed half butterfly.

Notice also the small frame underneath, they have become my favorite chippies and go on all my projects, I just can’t get enough of theses small frames. For the candy effect, the art stones worked perfectly and really take the color of the stains. Love this effect.

Now for a few more pictures…

Ohhh the 3 inch clock chipboard, another recent favorite:


And last but not least, this beautiful Sweet Girl Chipboard title, I just love it simply embossed in white.
