May 2011 Inspirational Scrapper

Artz de Scrap's Chosen Inspirational Scrapper for May 2011 is

Jade Moore

I am 30, female of course, I live in Belleville Il about 20 minutes away from Saint Louis Missouri. No kids, no hubby, but I am in a long term relationship and I am a deep rooted family girl (a daddy's girl really, I turn into a five year old EVERYTIME I am around my daddy!). My full time profession, well I am in the Air Force, but when I get off work and I come home and step into my scrap room...well that's when I really start trying to save the world!

My design strengths,
1. I finish what I start, I really do not have any projects that just sit.
2. i think out of the box, if you give me a box of items I would start by altering the box the goodies came in.
3. I draw inspiration from EVERYTHING!!! I carry a small notebook and when an idea hits I write it down.
4. I would say I have a shabby chic vintage style (Thank God, thats in right now)
5. I LOVE to inspire folks! My MOST favorite thing to create is MINI ALBUMS!!

Cupcake Stand Tutorial & Challenge

Materials and Supplies required:
- 3 Round Styrofoam Forms
- Glossy Accents
- Ribbon Spools
- Paint
- Border Punch
- Paper and embelishments of your choice

1) Measure your styrofoam pieces

2) Cut desired Paper according to Measurements (I used Flights Of Fancy By Prima).

3) Adhere paper to styrofoam pieces ( I adhered black paper on the bottom for a cleaner look)

4) Cut contrasting paper into 1 1/2 inch strips

and then punch the edge with a boarder punch of your choice and adhere to the sides of each paper covered round styrofoam piece (this will hide the edge)

5) Stack your ribbon spools to the desired height and glue together

6) Now Paint and adhere spools to the center of each covered round foam circle stacking your round styrofoam pieces in tiers

7) Embelish and fill with yummy cupcakes!!!
