Hello Paper Crafters! I’m Mercedes Weber, an avid paper crafter & a member of the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team member. I’m so excited to have a chance to share my creations with you!

I have a true confession to share before we get started…I have a deep love affair with pretty papers. So on that note let’s talk about one of the yummiest papers I have EVER seen, Stampin’ Up!’s Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper!


Trust me when I say you NEED this in your life. Seriously.

I am so in love and I knew my daughter would adore it too, so I created a little birthday ensemble for her.


Of course every birthday girl needs a pretty card. Did ya notice that beautiful gold scroll looking piece? Isn’t it uber fab?! It comes in an accessory pack that matches the Cupcakes & Carousels product suite! And those new doilies, yeah pretty much a must have too!


What 11-year-old doesn’t love a cupcake on their special day?!  I made a cute little cupcake box using the Gift Box Punch Board & decorated it with the papers from the 6×6 pad. Yep, the carousel horse & adorable banner are both cut from the designs in the stack!

So there you have a bit of inspiration for creating with this amazing little stack of awesomeness!
