Embossing Cookies

Embossed Cookies...for real!!!!

Now I realize to some of you use your embossing folders to emboss your shaped cookies may be sooo last year.  But I JUST saw this and was like...O.M.G.EEEEE!  Now why didn't I think of that.  I feel awful, I can't link the blog I found it on.  I was scrolling Pinterest when I saw the picture and I guess I didn't pin it.  Really sorry, I think it's SOOO important to link the blogs we find stuff on. 

My apologizes on the photo's, it's overcast here this morning.  And despite the whole rear of my house being glass the pictures still turned out dark:(

I'm still Holiday Baking (7 batches of Biscotti yesterday) and these are my Moms Shortbread.  Sorry, not allowed to share the recipe.  However, I changed it up and used this new little cutter I picked up.  This recipe yielded 70 cookies.  Make sure you wash your folder in hot water and soap first!

LOL...This is NOT one of those fancy Gourmet Blogs.  It's a craft blog so my counter is a direct reflection of my craft desk...messy but produces greatness!  *SNICKER*

I positioned the pattern on the folder to center on the cookie then pressed firmly. 

This is  Stampin Up Folder, Vintage...something?

Here are all 70 of my cookies...with my mess!  And a bag of caramels for the Chocolate Turtle Cookies I made next. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Have you thought of embossing your cookies and done it?  If you have let me know.  I feel like I'm the last to know!

Let me know if you're going to try this too?

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.

Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.

I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month... 

EAT. SLEEP. CRAFT. {repeat}
