What Big Pies You Have

All I can say is that THIS pie looks richer than Donald Trump. I might have to try it. If I dare.
I love Ezra Pound Cake food blog!

Speaking of rich looking...

I really admired some embossed cocktail napkins I saw in a party supply store while looking for things for my wedding. They were very expensive--16 for $8.00. Then I got looking at them closely and suddenly my brain kicked into gear. I found plain cocktail napkins in the ivory color I wanted and ran them through the Cuttlebug machine using a lacy embossing folder. Voila! Now I have the pretty embossed napkins and paid $4.00 for 50!


  1. How fabulous my darling.
    Take lots and lots of pictures.
    I love you

  2. These are so beautiful! Brilliant idea!

  3. How totally wonderful and beautiful!! I wonder if I can figure out how to do this on my Sizzix machine?!! I SO want to get a Cuttlebug - but alas - that will have to wait. I just love your cards, too, they are simply elegant and gorgeous! Thanks for sharing!

    God bless you ~ Julie

  4. Wow, Hula hips for sure! lol That pie recipe does sound fabulous, will copy it and put it on my "to make" list:-)

    Oh my goodness, you're a genius! I just love the way those plain white napkins turned out after you put them through the Cuttlebug machine...amazing!! xoxo

  5. I love your cards! They're beautiful. I've never heard about that machine but I want one too!

  6. You are creating beautiful things with that machine! The napkins was a brilliant idea and your cards are amazing! I really enjoyed your blog. I'll be back again:)

  8. Those are so beautiful and what a great idea...I love it!

  9. Love all your beautiful cards! I don't even know what a Cuttlebug machine is, but it looks darn fun. You might have to do a show and tell for us!

    Stay warm,

  10. I Love what the cuttlebug does. I want that machine. The napkins and the cards look awesome!!!

  11. I cannot believe you did that! Fabulous -- they look wonderful! I'm having a small gathering next week -- I think I'll do that with red ones!

    You are brilliant to think of that!

  12. Great idea with the napkin embossing, Shelley! So now I need ONE MORE TOY---the Cuttlebug machine.
