October's Stampin' Up project

Thanks to Giddy Greetings Quilling, I got this cute Mummy Card idea. I thought this would be a fast, fun little card to make for Halloween. I put my together in about 10 or 15 minutes, after getting everything rounded up. I added the scalloped tag to give the card a little something extra and I also added more ink to the strips of paper to give them an aged effect, I was going for old bandage look.

Items needed for this card:

White card stock

Black paper

Orange paper

Brown or Carmel ink pad

Batty for you Stamp set from Stampin' Up

1 3/4 inch circle punch

3/4 inch circle punch

1/4 inch circle punch

Scalloped circle punch

Tomatoes, Tomatoes, Tomatoes

Just got done picking all the tomatoes from the garden and boy oh boy, where there a lot. We (meaning my Mom and myself) picked and picked until we were blue in the face. This was the first year I really had done anything with a garden, and we planted 15 tomatoe plants and ever since they started producing tomatoes, we've been eating them. It's a great thing my grandparents love tomatoes or we would be throwing so many out. I hope I have this much luck next year so I can make salsa and chili sauce.

Recipe Books

My recipe books, which I had to make to hold the 6 x 6 recipes. I was part of an exchange group a couple years ago. I went with the Hawaiian theme because I want to decorate my kitchen in retro 50's and thought Hawaiian would work great because of Elvis' movies ;)

recipe cards

The first two pictures are of my Dessert recipe. I went with the pink and brown and also found some really cute cupcake paper, with glitter. Nothing better than glittered paper.
These recipes are from the exchange group I am part of and fit in the recipe boxes that I posted pictures of the other day.
I enjoy scrapbooking my reicpes because it gives the recipes a unique feel and is fun to show off your talents. I will post more of the scrapbook recipes as I finish them.

Recipe boxes

The boxes above are ones I put together. The first one (Hawaiian print) is one I made to match the 6 x 6 recipe books. The bottom picture, (browns, pinks, and blues) is one I created to display at a Relief Society Super Saturday.
