introducing baker's dozen + more monthly moments: january

Welcome to day 5 of the Papertrey Ink January release countdown. Today is another group post day and the whole design team is sharing projects created with the new Baker's Dozen set. I also have another layout to share with you today that uses my new Monthly Moments: January collection.

All of the new stamp sets and products that I am sharing today will be available to purchase on January 15th, 10PM ET, at Papertrey Ink.


Aren't these cupcakes just too much fun? They just remind me of the cute cupcake shops that you see where you can buy a box of the cutest, yummiest little cupcakes! The Baker's Dozen set has 13 of the best little cupcakes to adorn cards for birthdays, celebrations, or just because.


October is a very birthday heavy month for our family and so I picked the cute little cupcake designed for that month to work with complete with that cute pumpkin on top. I am imagining that this cupcake is definitely a pumpkin spice one - perfect for that time of year! 

I watercolored the cupcake with ink refills and then added glitter to the sprinkles on the cupcake with drops of Glossy Accents.


I stamped the frame image from the Baker's Dozen set onto a Monthly Moments: Journal Card 1 die cut in kraft cardstock. I popped the cupcake up just a bit with some foam tape and added the sentiment onto the coordinating banner die cut.

How easy would it be to replicate this card design for any of the months with just a quick change of color and/or patterned paper?


I used a very similar layout for this card, but instead of one cupcake I stamped three and did a little masking so that two of the cupcakes sit just behind the middle one.


I paper pieced the little flags, frosting, and cupcake wrappers. Some Dark Chocolate refill worked perfect for watercoloring the cupcakes (chocolate!) and then I added some sprinkles with a bit of glossy accents.


I can't wait to see what the rest of the design team did with these cute cupcakes and I can't wait to create more with them!


Finally today, I have another layout to share that uses my new Monthly Moments: January collection. This layout size is actually 6" x 12" and my plan is to use it at the beginning of our 2015 family album. I took our Christmas card photo that I sent out and trimmed off the bottom with the sentiment to use it on the page.

I used a grid style layout design again with this layout and added blocks of patterned pieces from the Monthly Moments: January journal card collection above and below where I decided to have the photo.


On the star patterned piece of a journal card, I added our names with the Type Bits II set and coordinating Type Bits Strip die. Above the names is an arrow die cut with the A Few Pointer die and the "remember this" sentiment stamped from the coordinating set.

I added some Small Sketched Star die cuts in white around the layout and you can see one here by our names.


On this journal card I added the year with the Bookprint Alphabet Number dies. Under that I stamped a few sentiments that are included in the Monthly Moments: January set along with a bit of typed journaling.


Here's a look at the piece of patterned paper from a journal card in the Monthly Moments: January collection that I used above the photo - and another star.


Now to keep up with getting photos in the album for this year - a girl can dream, right?
