For the cook

It was my best friend's birthday this week and as she runs her own cake-making business I thought this super cute apron from the Hero Arts What's Cooking set would be perfect. I paper pieced it with the adorable Cosmo Cricket Early Bird papers. I love cute aprons and now I want a pretty pinny just like this lol!

After I'd made the card I couldn't work out where to put the sentiment then remembered how flexible clear stamps are so slightly curved it so it stamped snug to the apron :)

Stamps - What's Cooking (Hero Arts)/Vintage Picnic Sentiments (Papertrey)
Card - Real Red/Sage Shadow (SU)
Paper - Early Bird (Cosmo Cricket)
Other - Red ribbon (Papertrey)/Martha Stewart border punch/adhesive pearls

And here is another project I made for the same friend that I posted on A Passion for Papertrey this week for our template challenge - I made her some cupcake toppers for an upcoming photoshoot:

... and made a case to hold them in using Papertrey's free Recipe Wrap-Up template:

Thanks for visiting!!
