Sunshine and Laughter and a Cake

Oops...looks like I have been missing in action again!

And this is why...

I am so disgusted with my photos :(
I can edit all I want, but the blurriness is driving me nuts!!

Waiting for the sun to pop out to get enough light is a big problem. 
When it does decide to show, I am busy with other stuff, not at home or the sun plays peek-a-boo every couple of minutes!

Have been pondering the thought of purchasing a light box kit and tripod in the hopes of rectifying most of the problem.
It's the cheaper way to go, I can't see forking out big bucks on a more expensive camera and lens for my simple enjoyment of Cindy's Paper Creation.

I have mailed out a couple of my cards without taking pics because I did not want to deal with my lack of photo taking issues. 

Now a creative funk is what I have done to myself (again) because of this unnecessary frustration.

I am going to reorganize my crafting supplies in the hopes of acquiring that creative passion as it once was. 
Wish me luck!

I repeatedly say to myself ...this too will pass!


But in the meantime, I really wanted to show a card creation that I sorta scrap lifted the idea!

Earlier this month my sister, who lives miles away from me near Daytona Florida, had a birthday and of course I wanted to make her a special card.

She owns Wildflour Cakes
Her custom cake studio specializes in creating modern and elegant wedding cakes and special occasion cakes. She incorporates her own organic, free-range eggs into her recipes to guarantee a cake that tastes as amazing as it looks!

So when she posted this picture on Facebook of a cake she created,

I thought I would make her a card using the idea from her cake and by coincidence I had just purchased a package of miniature clothespins that was on sale at Michaels.

Of course the photo does not do the card justice. 

I am hoping this will give you some creative inspiration.
You can create by scrap or card lifting from cakes!!  :-)

Happy Crafting!

  1. OMG! I didn't realize your card was inspired by my cake! Scrapbooking and cake making go hand-in-hand....

  2. Your card is lovely Cindy, I love how you found inspiration from the cake, which is incredible as well! As for your photos--don't wait for the sun to peek out. As long as you take your photo during the daylight hours, there will be enough light. Purchase a piece of white poster board. Fold it in half. Prop it up in an L shape with one side up against a wall, the other side on the floor. Place it NEAR (not in ftront of) direct sunlight, or any natural light you have in your home. Take your photo!! Good luck!!

    1. Thank you, MIssy for the advice, I appreciate it and will give it a try!
