Scrapbooking Wedding Heirlooms

Hi Everyone! Jill Cassity here to share a family memories layout with you.

HE CAUGHT IT! by Jillian Deiling Cassity

Last year at our wedding we did the traditional bouquet and garter toss. When I threw my bouquet a big battle ensued, a huge group of my single friends and family were battling over the bouquet, it was hilarious! When it was my husband’s turn to throw his garter though… he threw it over his shoulder, we turned around and saw a group of guys staring at it sitting on the floor, no one wanted to touch it! When my son realized that no one else was going to grab it, he made a beeline for it and snatched it off the floor and started jumping up and down, giggling and holding the garter in the air. He was so excited! My husband and I proceeded to tell him that his catching the garter meant that he was going to be the next boy to get married. My son’s response was “Ewww!”.

Mother’s Day with the Cricut Cake Machine

Hello,! everyone Ginger Williams here again with a Mother’s Day Cricut Cake project to share. I’ve been wanting to get to know my Cricut Cake Machine a bit better for a couple of months now, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity!

I have played around with cutting pre-made frosting sheets before and found them to be easy and fun to use, but a bit limited in the color selection. This time I wanted to be able to have very specific colors to go along with the very vibrant colors of my Mother’s Day Pink Lemonade Pie, so I turned to gum paste. I purchased some pre-made gum paste from a local hobby store and tinted the different colors myself with some gel based food coloring. This worked out really well. I had the exact colors I wanted and was able to make them in the quantities I needed.
