Happiness is Homemade-CDD reveal

Hi fellow scrappers and project lifers..
I'm here today to share with you a project life page I created using the fun stamps from the Baked with Love stamp set from Craftin Desert Diva's..

Here is what I created:
My mom and I had a bake day on my day off and decided to bake a bunch of stuff we can't buy here in Finland, like english mufffins and cinnamon-raisin bagels.. Yum!!
these plastic sleeve pockets are difficult to photograph, glare free..LOL

How about a few close ups:
I stamped the mixer onto a scalloped circle and colored it in..

used three of the single sayings and created this fun card with the banners..

and finally, the Happiness is Homemade sentiment.. 

Here is the stamp set I used:
and you can buy it HERE

and there you have my Project life page for todays reveal..
Thanks for stopping by today..
hugs

Life is Sweet- PPPR reveal

Hi fellow scrappers..
I'm here today to share a cute little layout I created as my design team project for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon, using some of the new Baking Fun cutting file..
Here is what I created:

I love to bake so I'm hoping I can get one of my kids to snap a photo of my one day while I'm baking, so I can add it to this layout :)

How about a few close ups:
I decided to use the carton of eggs from the Egg-cellent cutting file, plus the blow, which is in the Baking Fun cutting file..

Absolutely love this little flour baggy, plus the rolling pin.. Both can be found in the Baking fun cutting file.

all of these cute apples are in the Apple Picking cutting file.. The marquee I used for the background is in the Layered Labels 1 cutting file.

these wooden spoons are in the baking fun cutting file..I also used two of the note book sheets for the background and those are in the Note book pages cutting file.

and there ya have my layout that I created for today's reveal..
Thank you for stopping by today and taking a look..
Till next time..
Have a scrap-tastic week
Hugs

The photos are linked, so just click on it..  :)
and here is what I created using these stamps:

for my first project, I used the SEW RAGGEDY stamp set and created a fun layout show casing a photo of my daughter being goofy :)
I used the stitched edge stamp along the edges of my layout, then stamped the little girl holding the hearts onto a tag which I colored and then finally I stamped the sentiment "Love is the thread that binds us!" to a label, which I tucked behind the photo..
close up of the edge stamp here..

and the sentiment and little girl here..

I also decided to create a second project, which is a layout I created of my son Adam and my husband Mike.  I took the photo early one morning when they were leaving to drive up to watch the Daytona 500.

I used the "All Aboard" stamp set on this layout.. It's always fun to add little touches of details here and there with fun sayings for one and then stamped the 88 onto the tag, which is the number of my son and hubby's favorite driver :)

used the " Join the Fun!" stamp on this road sign

the "Hooray" from Hip Hip Hooray around the circle arrow..

the number 8 (twice) on this tag..

and the "Admit one" on this tag :)

and there ya have it...

Get Cookin' Blog Hop-PPPR



You should of arrived here from Leah's blog,
if you did then you are in the right place.  If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog."  

The theme for this hop is Get Cookin'. So, we're sharing projects that have to do with cooking and food using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files. 

I decided to create a little stand up mini album where I can store all of my recipes that I've just quickly written down on a scrap piece of paper and now they are in a drawer in my kitchen..
I dont' have any text in this mini yet, going to add those along with the recipes.. I think its difficult to add text before you add your goodies :)

My fun cover.. I didn't want to just add ole saying to the cover, so came up with the "Just add Flour!" cause that pretty much sums up all of the recipes that I'll be keeping in this :)

Since I moved to Finland from the States, I've had to learn how to make lots of American style dishes and baked goods on my own from scratch.. anything from corn dog batter, fried chicken to flavored coffee creamers, etc...I even make my own vanilla extract for baking..

Here some photos of the inside of my album:
*click on the photo to make it bigger :)









I used lots of fun cooking themed files on my project:
