Some new layouts for challenges at Kitchen Keepsake

Here are a couple of 2 page layouts I did for challenges at Kitchen Keepsake. If you are looking for a small but fun filled board and like challenges please check us out.

The paper for the Easter layouts is something I have had for years not even sure of the manufactuer. I used stickers from Provo Craft, my sizzix to cut out the basket and then used yard to make it look like grass, the eggs are made from sizzilits. I made the nest looking flower from burlap.

For the Woody layouts I used Paper Studio paper called Farm Fresh, the trim is something new I just found at Hobby Lobby and is actually metal, great to work with. I made the flowers from burlap.

Thank you for taking the time to look around my blog.

A couple of thank you cards

My daughter-in-law asked me to make her 4 thank you cards, so I made 2 of each of these. I used cardboard to make the coffee holder on the one and used some chipboard purses that I have had for years. The papers I used are something that I have had in my stash for years, not even sure the maker.

Some fun little projects

My son asked me to make some Mousekeeping envelopes for when we go to Disney. He found an example on line and from his example I created these.

My daughter-in-law asked me to make a project so when my grandson says he is bored, she can point to this:

Thanks for visiting.

My challenges at Kitchen Keepsake

For this card challenge use aluminum foil and emboss it. I embossed the aluminum foil and then using embossing powder on it. I then ran black ink over the top of it.

The recipe challenge for the month is to make your favorite cookie recipe and on the layout use chipboard letters.
