Hello my friends, and thank you for inviting me to share on Stampin’ Up! Saturday! Today I have some really fun projects for you, all using the Cutie Pie Thinlits and the Big Shot.


This die makes the most adorable pieces of cake. You could make just one, or several! These three cute pieces were made by the Concept Artists at the Stampin’ Up! Home Office. They are seriously sweet! 


The triangle shape of this thinlit sent my creative mind into overdrive as I thought of the many different triangle items I could make. I finally settled on three projects that I’m very excited to share with you.

First up, the triangle shape of this thinlit is absolutely perfect for party hat favour. Can you imagine how thrilled your birthday party guests would be to receive this filled with treats as their take away?


To create the hat I used the bold and beautiful It’s My Party Designer Series Paper, paired with the Party With Cake stamp set, and of course the Crushed Curry Baker’s Twine and Cherry On Top Cotton Paper make the perfect coordinating embellishments.

Once I’d made the party hat, I was in the party mood! Next up, I was ready to play with this die to create some wedding decor and favours. Living so close to the Rocky Mountains, I have been invited to several mountain weddings, so with the mountain reception decor in mind I created these very modern and chic snowcapped paper mountains.


Just a few extra snips with my scissors and some additional scoring, and I was able to create little mini mountains to accompany the full size one.

And what’s some diy wedding decor without some diy wedding favours? I simply added a tag to the largest mountain to create glammed up mountain favour box.


The Going Global stamp set and Going Places Designer Series Paper are the touch to a mountain theme wedding.

After creating the mountains, I was thinking big! I wanted a bold statement piece that could be used at several different parties, that’s when this diamond was born!


Using five die cuts that I altered with my paper snips and trimmer, I glued them all together to create a cardstock base, and then went to work adding the most blingy of fringe! Doesn’t the Silver Glimmer Paper make this hanging diamond a showstopper?!

So whether you have a fun birthday party with friends, a modern and chic mountain wedding, or the blingiest bashes planned, I hope you’ll remember that the Cutie Pie Thinlits really are so much more than just a piece of cake! It’s an absolute honour to be asked to showcase my creativity on the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog. Thank you so much for having me!" - Allison Okamitsu
