cupcake love

my kids LOVE cupcakes! so i try to make them cupcakes for their birthdays and any other occasions, like today. there really wasn't any reason, other than that i wanted to bake some cupcakes. i used betty crocker's lemon cake mix with lemon frosting, both staples in our household:
so far i've only made them with store-bought cake mixes, but my goal is to start creating my own cupcakes from scratch. we'll see when i finally get to that point, but until then, i will continue baking the way i know best, including baking cakes, and i'll post pictures of all my creations here, so you can be the judge!

revamped magazine files

last week i bought some white file folders at ikea, 5 for $2.99, and yesterday i finished revamping them with some vintage scrapbook paper i bought at robert's craft.

it was a fun project. see the results here:

all you need is:
plain magazine files
scrapbook paper
glue (i used scrappers' spray glue by creative imaginations)
mod podge
sponge brush

*trace each side of the magazine file onto the scrapbook paper.
*cut the scrapbook paper and glue it onto each side of the magazine file.
*make sure the scrapbook paper is glued on everywhere, especially on the edges.
*use the mod podge to seal the edges and the scrapbook paper.
*let the decorated magazine files stand until mod podge has dried.

have fun revamping your own magazine files!!!
