Waltzingmouse Stamps July Release Blog Hop..

It's time!!! Welcome to Waltzingmouse Stamps July release blog hop. For the past 3 days the whole team have been previewing the 8 sets which will be available to purchase in just a few minutes!

If you've arrived here from Anya's blog then you are on the right path. If not, then you need to hop back to Claire's blog where the fun begins

Today I am sharing something a  little different.


When I saw the Eat Cake stamp set one sentiment in particular reminded me of when I bake cupcakes - no sooner have I taken them out of the oven when the chimes of 'can we eat them yet?' start, lol. So I made up a batch of cupcakes and created some toppers for them using both the circle and scalloped circle nestabilities and 2 sentiments from Eat Cake. 


These would go down a treat at any party!!! I bought the Wilton Lollipop Sticks from The Scrapbook Store. They are 8" in length so I cut them in half, which is a more suitable length for cupcake toppers... and you get twice as long out of the pack, lol.

Of course I had a very willing tester...

Sizing it up... 

must not waste the butter frosting.... 

Sinking the teeth....

Needless to say there wasn't a whole lot left to photograph ;)

 Next on the hop is Kate's blog. Have fun hopping!!!!

And the full list of ladies in case you get lost....
