Food Fare - Banana Bread

Happy Monday!!
It's my day over at the Jaded Blossom Blog and I have combined it with a Food Fare project for a new banana bread recipe we've been trying in our house. I think it's a keeper.


My recipe page is 8"x8". 
I added a tag line across the top using the Jaded blossom Baked with Love stamps and  added hearts form the Birthday Dies. The spatula chef monkey is holding can be found in the Baking Dies set. 

Chef Monkey  is a mash up of  the Sock Monkey Mayem and What's Cooking svg files from SVG Cutting Files along with the Kawaii Banana file. Its banana bread after all. 

Have a crafty day!!

Hi Everyone!  There is a new challenge at SVG Cutting Files, this month we want to see your fun summer cards Just remember, the project just include something from SVG Cutting Files. Projects should be linked on the blog or Facebook Galleria Group by May 14. As always, there is a great prize up for grabs. 


I am using the cute flip flops form the Kawaii Summer cut file set for my simple vacation well wishes card.
I started with the basic card base and some coordinating papers. 
I cut several pairs of flip flops from the Kawaii Summer file set. I added some twine and hung my flip flops with mini clothes pins. I colored the clothes pins using my copic markers. The sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom Aloha stamp set.

and the Easter treats keep coming..

I'm back with a second post to share a couple last Easter treats. Wow, 2 posts in one day!!!

This little bunny basket is from My Scrap Chick. This little box or basket goes together in minutes. 


These would be great treats at the dinner table on Easter.  My little box is going to go to the neighbor boy.

Now I have yet another treat.
I came across these malted egg candies in a box that measures approx 3.5x2.5. Of course I had to get them and make something with them. Well, the result is an Easter box wrapper. I have a couple bunny versions here...
I cut some eggs on my silhouette, a simple oval shape. The bunny and the sentiment on the left is from MCT To My Best Peep stamp set. The sentiment on the right is from Jaded Blossoms Eggcellent Stamp set and the butterflies are from the JB Spring dies 2

And we can't forget about the chicks on Easter, so here is one of those as well. A cool chick at that!
The cute chick is from PPPR Cute Chicks. The sentiment is from the same MCT set mentioned above and the tag it is stamped on is from the JB Mini Tag dies. I used the JB Spring Dies for all the grass.

Enjoy the a wonderful spring weekend!!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter! 
I'm just popping in quickly today with an Easter treat box I've done for some friends. 

These little bunny boxes are from the silhouette store #76086. The top slides off to reveal hidden chocolate treats. 
I added a little sentiment on the front using my

Folk Art for my Kitchen Wall!

Happy Friday! I am lucky that I have the day off today due to Easter being this weekend. 

Today is also my design day over at SVG Cutting Files and Ann has out done herself with a new file of a primitive looking bird house. Sorry for the glare on the glass.
I have been looking for the right artwork to hang on a large wall I have in my kitchen. I had something in mind, but for years just could find the right print or prints.
I finally decided I would make my own. 
I just love this schoolhouse version of the birdhouse. 
Now if you love this file too, you can get it Free! Yup- this file is free to members of the SVG Cutting Files Facebook Gallery. You can find it here.

I added a couple little birds I found in the Silhouette store and some clouds using the Jaded Blossom Spring Dies 2 to finish off my scene before framing it. 

The finished size of this print all framed is 10" wide by 20" tall. 

This will be 1 of 4 total prints I need to do. So stay tuned to see the others.

Have a crafty day!
