Theme Your Cake Shoppe And Use it All Year Long!

Hi everyone! My name is Linh and I'm honored and excited to be here as a guest designer. I have a new video up on the CottageCutz YouTube Channel. In this video, I'll show you how I took the Cake Shoppe from the new Sweet Treat release and combined it with the Spooky Camper set to create two different cards. The Cake Shoppe is super versatile and can be themed so you can use it all year long.

For both cards, I die cut from solid color cardstock. It's a great way to use up all your scraps and saves you from having to color little pieces. For the smaller pieces, I used a glue pen to apply adhesive. This allows you to get glue precisely where you want it.  I like to die cut a lot of elements so I can mix and match and have a lot of choices when I go to create my card. I had so many leftover pieces, I made a second card!

This first card is a Halloween themed cake shoppe.

This card converts the cake shoppe to a haunted house.

On this second card, I used some of the Cake Shoppe elements differently.  The small windows and front porch step I used as bricks. The greenery in the pots I used as bushes. And I combined more of the Spooky Camper elements to complete my haunted house.  I had so much fun tucking all the spooky elements here and there. I especially love the cat that's hiding behind the pumpkin. :)

Here's what I used to make these cards
