Cupkizzles #49

Brother's birthday is coming up in less than two weeks. For his card I decided to play along in this week's TECC (#49!) over at Taylored Expressions (see second half of this post).

This is the sketch.

I was expecting this sketch to be a challenge. Normally when I attempt this type of symmetry I end up thinking my design looks too simple. I liked playing with Brother's card so much though that I made a second. (Does that make me a cheater?)

Grillin' and Chillin'

Studio G grill set fro
m series 14
SEI patterned paper
Bazzil Cardstock
JoAnn's Sew Essential buttons

How Sweet

Stampendous Hey There Cupcake
SEI patterned and solid paper
Heidi Grace printed flowers
White Opal Liquid Pearls

I'm pretty psyched that I was able to line everything up so well! Really, it's layouts like this that make me wish I had a tiny level...
