Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful Moms, Mums, Ma, Me, Mama, Maman!!!

I was inspired by a pinterest of a kitchen aid mixer shape card! It was so adorable.  I decided to scale mine back a bit and use this beautiful glitter paper pack I have been hoarding for years. Most of the patterned paper is from Martha Stewart circa 2010. lol.  Thank goodness no expiration date on patterned paper.

I love the background paper (which is from DCWV) but it is hard to see in photographs! For the final touches I added some spring flowers, butterflies, and bling to give it a little more dimension.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother’s Day filled with love and happiness…!!!

And maybe a cute little cupcake too! xoxo

Aprons on for all Moms!

I decided to do a little baking for Mother’s Day this year…

Of course, it is craft baking!  I absolutely adore all things made by Lori Whitlock – she is so talented and creative! To start, I printed out all of the pieces so it would make the assembly process easier.

I used two types of patterned papers for the aprons which I thought would be great for Mother’s Day with all the fun floral patterns.

Originally, for the apron pockets I used colored card stock but it was really hard to see the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment.  After a few tries, I changed the pockets to white so the sentiment would stand out.

I attached the apron pockets to the apron and made sure to push it down very firmly so that the pocket would stay in place.

For final touches, I added the ribbon and utensils! Seriously, doesn’t the spatula just kill you with cuteness? I also love the rolling pin! *squeal*

Like all great recipes, this card was made with lots of love! I can’t wait for Mother’s Day this year.  So excited to send these to all the wonderful mom’s in my life!
