CIC400 Thursday Spotlight--Kitty Bee Designs & Aliciabel

This week we are celebrating our 400th Challenge!



We have two sponsors to spotlight today: 

Aloha, from Ruth, the owner and illustrator of Kitty Bee Designs, out of beautiful Hawaii. After a long day of staring a numbers, doodling at night was Ruth's way of relaxing. She had always been a card maker at heart and a paper hoarder, but could never find that "perfect" rubber stamp design. Kitty Bee Designs was created to fill the need for simple and whimsical stamp designs. Kitty Bee Designs offers all of their images in digital format, and some even make it to limited-run clear stamps! You can find their images in their Etsy Store and wonderful inspiration and super fun challegnes on their blog. Swing by and say hello!


Since childhood, Alicia Bel drew all the time. She liked to make cards, and studied school teaching and then Fine Arts. She learned anatomy, composition, perspective and many things to make most her drawings interesting. Alicia Bel's drawings are very sweet, innocent, happy and sometimes sexy. She's a bit childish and really likes princess stories and beautiful things, which you will notice through her art.


This year we invite participants to combine a birthday theme project with a past Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. Past challenges can be found on the CIC Pinterest Board as well as on our Cupcake Inspirations Blog. 




Some of our fabulous Sweeties are sharing projects to inspire you today.

CIC400-Tuesday Spotlight--Bugaboo

This week we are celebrating our 400th Challenge!




Today's sponsor spotlight is: 




Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was seven years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week! 

Bugaboo is generously providing a $21 gift voucher to their store.

This year we invite participants to combine a birthday theme project with a past Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. Past challenges can be found on the CIC Pinterest Board as well as on our Cupcake Inspirations Blog.
