Hungry Girls Pineapple Upside Down Cake!

I admit I have a sweet tooth......dessert just seems to be one of the things I miss the most on WW. So I am always looking for ways to enjoy a dessert now and again! Hungry Girl came up with the recipe for a Pineapple Upside Down Cake! (here) I knew my Demarle at Home Flower Mold would work well for this cake!!!! There are 8 petals to the mold and this cake has 5 ppv for WW with 8 servings to a cake! How perfect is this! Easy way for portion control! And the best thing about Demarle is how easy things come out of the pan! I baked it, let it cool, and then turned it out onto a pretty plate. Now much left in the pan, and a quick was with soapy water, and a shake to dry it, I am done! I just have to stay away from it! Taking it for a pot luck dinner at a friend's house tonight! YUM! Happy Stamping & Knitting!

My Digital Studio Birthday Invites

I can finally share this! We threw my Dad a surprise party for his 80th birthday. I created the invitations in MDS. I scanned the photo from his high school graduation and used it for the invite. The background is the same picture, just faded out some. What do you think? I was very happy with how they came out! I was able to print two to a page on Very Vanilla cardstock, and them cornered rounded each and mounted them on to Soft Suede Cardstock! So easy and fun! Happy Stamping & Knitting!

Wish Big!

This card was fun to make! I cut circles of black with various circle punches and glued them down to a Crumb Cake layer. I then ran the whole thing through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing folder. This makes the circles look embedded! The stamp set used is from the Occasions Mini called "Bring on the Cake". I love how it all came together. Here is the front and the inside with a close up of the main image.
