I make about 20-25 different kinds of cookies, candies and cakes each holiday season. I decided I wanted to put my favorite recipes in a book. I purchased a 6 x 6 photo album so I could use the pockets to put my recipes in. When I am baking cookies, my recipes have a tendency to get splattered with everything so this protects the recipes. That is the glare you see in the photos! Anyways...these are a few recipes I have put into my book. I print my recipes on the computer and then just mount them on cardstock and various scraps of DP. These are really quick and fun to do. I'll be making a few more for gifts too.
I was inspired by Jerri Kay's place cards and came up with my version today. I may have to print the names on the computer so it will look nicer though! I will try that tomorrow and then just punch the name from an oval shaped punch by SU. We'll see! These are made with 2 different nesties. The corn husks are a JustRite stamp that has been stamped several times and cut out and layered several layers high. I colored the image with Copics. The bow has Diamond Glaze on it to make it shine. The tiny tulip shapes on the right are from the punched out image. I just popped them up with dimensionals and put pearls on them. I attached the place card to a scored piece of paper that has been folded to fit behind the place card.
On my card yesterday with the poinsettia's, I added a few silver bling to the center of the flower and it really jazzed it up a bit!
Hope you had time to remember our veteran's today. I took my veteran to dinner! There was SO SO SO much traffic everywhere today that we decided to just come straight home afterwards! It was like Christmas Eve!!!
Have a great day!
This is a gift card holder I made as part of a birthday gift. I got a photo of a dvd that the recepient wanted and printed it up for the front of the gift card holder. The holder is made with one sheet of paper that is folded so that the center of the paper is the fold you see with the gift card coming out. I just punched that fold with 2 different punches to make the opening to put the gift card in. I added a few sentiments inside the card holder that are from Papertrey Ink and SU. The tab is a SU punch. I have put a magnet on it so it just snaps shut very easily. Pretty cool, huh?
This is a gift set I made to put homemade cookies in. I purchased the can from Papertrey Ink. The top of the can is in front of the card. It is made with Justrite Stamps. The can is just covered with DP by K & Co. The card is also made with a Justrite stamp. Hope I can find time to make goodies to fill it!!! Have a fun day!
