Food Fare- Apple Dumplings!

Hey everyone. It's been ages since I posted a Food Fare recipe.

As you may remember, I am trying to scrap all the family favorite recipes along with new ones I find that I want to be sure to not lose. You can see some of them under the Food Fare link in my blog banner.

Well, I tied a new quick and easy recipe I found on Pinterest recently and I gotta say it was a hit, so I scrapped it!

Today is my design day over at Digi MyWorld and I found the perfect digi for my recipe page, this little chef. from the Little Pizza man digital image set.

I colored him up using my Silhouette software. I added an extra layer behind him before cutting him out. The sign board also is a digi in the same set, what a bargain!

This recipe page came together really quick just as the recipe is. If you need a quick dessert this spring, try this recipe, it wont disappoint.

Have a crafty day!

Hugs and Kisses!

Happy Monday. It's my design day over at Jaded BlossomI have a treat box to share today using a stamp from the Perfect Match that was released in March.

I have seen many versions of this box out there using a sizzix die. I don't have that die nor a sizzix to use it in so I had to create my own version. 
The box opens on the bottom for easy filling of treats. I added scallop borders to the front and embossed them to look like ruffles on the dress. 
I then added sequins for the flowers at the waist. 
I hand cut the tag after stamping this wonderful sentiment from the Jaded Blossom Perfect Match stamp set. 

Have a crafty day!

Got Eggs?

Yup- aren't these little chicks cute. Just a few last treats for some friends on Easter. 
These need to travel well and far so these little packages of goodness are perfect to fit in my bag.
The chick is a file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and the "got eggs" is a sentiment from My Creative Time. 

I printed three layers for each chick. The whole chick itself, then just his body with face, and finally the beak. I attached the body to the whole image with foam tape and then glued the beak. 

This is a quick way to get that look of paper piecing without cutting all the tiny parts, especially when you are doing multiples. The pillow envelopes measure 2"x3" just enough room for a few Reese's eggs.

So,  I have one extra chick but no more pillow boxes and I really need 5 treats. Fortunately,  I had to make a stop at Walgreen's last night and saw this mini Ghirardelli package.

For this one, I used the Jaded Blossom Treat Topper Die.  Once I had my paper cut with the die,  I cut that in half and glued it right onto the candy package. The sentiment for this one is from the JB Easter Treats 3 and the grass is from the Spring Dies set. 

Now I have 5 treats for my 5 clients that are traveling with me today. 


Have a crafty day!!
