For this hop we are giving away to one lucky winner is this great Project Life Recipe Pages Kit by Becky Higgins. 


 

So, grab yourself a Latte', sit back and hop along with us as we share our projects with you.

Many moons ago I participated in a lot of swaps on one of my favorite Message Boards that is no longer around. I sure do miss those ladies! We made all kinds of fun handcrafted things to swap. One of favorite swaps was our recipe swap, where we each duplicate a 6x6 layout with our recipe for each person in the group. In the end we had many yummy recipes to put together in a recipe box or in a scrapbook. I thought it would be fun to share a few of the ones I created. I always shared my favorite recipes with the swap.

 Chicken Tortilla Soup in the crock pot! Super easy and oh so yummy!!


This one tastes just like a baked potato on a plate! Perfect for summer picnics.

 
I love sweet pineapple on pork!! So delicious!!
 
 
Remove the tag for the actual cooking instructions.

  You Will Forever Be My Always CTMH Card

Pin It
 
Hello crafty friends!! I am here today to share with you a gorgeous card I created using the Close To My Heart Cricut Cartridge Artfully Sent. I love this cartridge and hope to feature a new card from it every two weeks or so. I purposefully created this card using scraps left over from my XOXO layout I shared earlier this week. Worked out great!
 

 
 I chose to create the 3D Pop Out Card, so what the Cricut cut out for me was the card base and the inside. The front was left up to my imagination. It also has options to create a design on the front of the card with a blank inside.


Don't have this cartridge yet and want it!! I'd be happy to help you out! Just drop me a message or come by my website http://www.conniecancrop.ctmh.com

 

Other items used:
Authentique Paper and die cuts
cardstock
pop dots
Prima Ink
Sequins
Twine


I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!


 don't forget this month's fun challenge!!
