Learning Photoshop!

So I finally perfected my photoshop skills! I think the pictures look great with no background! Some of them were really hard to do, but thanks to GIMP it was fairly easy!
I have been super busy this week. We are moving tomorrow and I had family in town all weekend. I didn't start packing until Monday, so it's been crazy busy at my house! My step-son has baseball tonight and tomorrow night which just leaves me to get stuff done before the moving guys come tomorrow! Yikes! Once I'm moved I will be creating more "Classy Baby Cakes" for you all to enjoy!

1st Featured Etsian!

I'm so excited to start featuring fellow Etsy sellers on my blog! I hope to feature a very talented Etsian once a week, so if you would like to be added to the list please email me at kathleen@sewcuteandcrafty.com!

So.... my first featured artist is Jamie from The Pat-a-Cake Baby! She is a SAHM of a 9 month old baby girl who has been crafting since childhood. She is a sewing queen!!
My favorite item is the adorable hand sewn pacifier bibs! They are individually crafted using trendy and modern fabrics. They have a soft cotton print on one side and plush minkee fabric on the other, making them REVERSIBLE! A pearl snap is used to attach the pacifier and velcro is used to attach the bib around baby's neck, which allows for greater size adjustments. Get over to The Pat-a-Cake Baby and check out her other adorable creations!!

Thanks, Jamie, for being my 1st featured artist from Etsy!!

Personalize Me Part 2

This cute cake is the second cake in the Personalize Me line of simple but classy. The customer wanted pink and black... and wanted it to be personalized. The bling on the letters adds just the right touch!

Random Thought

I love being busy! I love when people think my cakes are "Classy".
I'm working on giving my cakes their own name. I have come up with "Classy Baby Cakes". My new tag line is "Classy Diaper Cakes for the Chic Mom-to-be". I hope it's catchy and hip! I was feeling like "Sew Cute and Crafty" just didn't do it for the cakes, but I didn't want to do an entire overhaul of my website...so I figured I can just brand the cakes instead. Much easier!
I'm working on 2 right now. A personalized cake for "Cooper" and one for "Nicole". I really like custom cakes. They give me the ability to create something new and unique! LOVE IT!
Stay tuned, I will post some pics of the 2 cakes.

My favorite author, Emily Giffin, is finally releasing her next book!! If you have not read her first three, then stop what you are doing RIGHT NOW and RUN out and buy them! They are page turners!The New York Times bestselling author of SOMETHING BORROWED, SOMETHING BLUE, and BABY PROOF delivers another captivating, straight-from-the heart novel. This is a story for everyone who has ever wondered: How can I truly love the one I'm with, when I can't forget the one who got away?
Ellen and Andy's marriage doesn't just seem perfect, it is perfect. There is no question how deep their devotion is, and how naturally they bring out the best in each other. But one fateful afternoon, Ellen runs into Leo for the first time in eight years. Leo, the one who brought out the worst in her. Leo, the one who left her heartbroken with no explanation. Leo, the one she could never quite forget. When his reappearance ignites long-dormant emotions, Ellen begins to question whether the life she’s living is the one she's meant to live. LOVE THE ONE YOU'RE WITH is a powerful story about one woman at the crossroads of true love and real life.

My new Flower Garden

This is the newest cake I created. I call it "Little Flower Garden". It's made with Pampers Swaddlers, bright ribbon, and sweet felt flowers. I love it because it's so cheerful and bright.
I have put it on Etsy, www.craftycreations2.etsy.com, but have not uploaded it to my website yet. It's $55.

My Posse

I took a picture of some of my cakes today. All the bright colors together just made me smile.
