Northern Whimsy Review & Giveaway!

I’ve had the privilege to meet lots of awesome people while I’ve been blogging, and one of my favorites is Jess. Jess blogs over at Rural Dreams, and she also has a really awesome Etsy shop, where she creates custom fabric and printable paper designs!

Now, y’all know me: I LOVE a good printable, and I love to make them, too! So Jess shared some pretty papers with me – and they just happen to match my blog colors! Check this out!

Fun, huh?! I turned it into this:

This is just one of the neat color schemes of printable papers she has available in her shop!


The possibilities are really endless with these things…and of course, I LOVE the colors! (Imagine that!)

However, the newest thing going on over at the Northern Whimsy Etsy shop are the cupcake wrappers! YES! You can download them and print them right from your printer at home and really dress up some cupcakes!

Well, it’s no secret that I love cupcakes, too, so I whipped a few up so you could see how these cupcake wrappers work. (Of course, I had to choose the strawberries – y’all know I grew up in the Winter Strawberry capital of the world!)

Here’s what they look like when you print them out:


After you cut them out…

…you put the ends together!

Now, this particular set came with toppers, as well!


What fun! Let’s take a look at my wrapped and topped cupcakes!

  2. How cute! I love the strawberries and the color choices in the first option looks really cool, too.

  3. I think you and Jess are an awesome printable match! prints are great and compliment so much of your style so well, nice match up ladies! I love the cupcake printables.. have long been a fan of fancy artsy craftsy not your ordinary cupcake liners (presentation is everything!) but NEVER bought any from Etsy! I’m a real newbie to Etsy and love that you’ve opened up a whole new world to me! My fav cupcake is the brownie cupcake ‘filled’ with frosting and again topped with more frosting then sprinkles with sparkly sugar crystals.. I put my brownies in beautiful only liners! heading over to enter the contest now and check out Jess’ Etsy shop too 🙂 <3

  4. I love the cupcake liners! What a cute idea. I never would have thought about printables for cupcakes! Also, love Etsy and love supporting sellers on there!

  5. Super cute! Of course I would have to fill the color port in my printer which I think has been empty for about 9 months! Might motivate me! 🙂
