Hello crafty friends,

I recently received a box of crafty goodies from Therm O Web (big shout to them!).  I'm sharing my unboxing video with you in this post too.   I will be creating more posts/videos using their new release products.  I have provided links to the items in the unboxing video as well as to other products I used during the demo (if still available).  Here are the three cards I created using Metallix Gel on the background panel.

Unicorn themed cupcake decor - Rinea foiled papers

Hello crafty friends,

What a happy day!!!  This is my first post as a member of the Rinea design team.  The following cupcake decor project is on the Rinea blog and a video on their YouTube channel for you to check out how to make these.  The best part is how they can be customized with different Rinea foiled paper colors and your own special touches, like the unicorn stickers I used on mine.
