Spice Cake, Anyone?

If you're here for a peek at Spice Cake, you're in the right place!
If you're here for Spice Cake that goes in the oven...sorry. ;-)

I'm talking about a gift set I recently made with our "Spice Cake" designer paper! :)
Hee hee

I've been wanting to share this for a LONG time, but had to wait until the recipient received it! :)

Sorry bout the shiny glare on the pic. Kinda hard to get a good pic with this plastic case.

What plastic case, you say? Well, it's our Clear-mount Storage Case!! I've prettied it up with the Spice Cake designer paper (Holiday Mini), punches, and purrrty Pool Party ribbon. :)

I made a matching pen (see bottom), magnet (Fun Flowers die), a little box with treat inside, and matching thank you card.

Want to see inside the case? Ok. :)

It's a mini legal pad cut down a bit and a bit of pizzazz added with Spice Cake designer paper at the top! :)

Want to see inside the little gift box? Ok. :)

I made the gift box with our Soft Suede cardstock &  Spice Cake designer paper!

Stamp sets used:
Inside - It's A Wrap Occasions
Tag - Cute By The Inch

I made the tag by coloring the stamp with my markers, stamping onto Very Vanilla cardstock, then punching it out with our new 1" square punch (Holiday Mini)! I added a layer of Pool Party cardstock behind that, and a final layer of Soft Suede cardstock punched with our Postage Stamp punch. Tied it to the box sleeve with our new Early Espresso Baker's Twine.

Finally, the magnet is made by cutting layers of Spice Cake dp and Soft Suede cardstock with our Fun Flowers die and my Sizzix Big Shot. The middle is one of our Neutrals Buttons with the Early Espresso Baker's Twine tied to it. :)

On the thank you card, I used the set Easy Events, and continued the theme of Soft Suede and Spice Cake. :)

Well, what do you think? I'd love to hear from you!  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a GREAT day! :)


  1. What a great set! I'm sure your friend love it.

  2. Love your gift set with this paper - I am going to have make one for myself!

  3. This is just a beautiful set...and a very lucky person to receive it!!!!!! Thanks for sharing this wonderful creation.

  4. The pics hardly do it justice..!
    Not kidding... You're one wonderful lady Crystel... I'm so glad to be the lucky recipient of this jaw-dropping set.. I've carried it with me since I got it, waiting for that special moment to first use the legal pad (pen's been used!) - and the chocolates were gone much too quick..
    The magnet's on one of my pretties-boxes, and the upside-down spice-cake-card sits on my desk, so I can see it from the corner of my eye.
    I must state again: I love that designer paper.. love, love, love it!
    Thanks again! Keep playing!
    (May I steal your idea for my next gift to someone??)


Go ahead...make my day! :)
