H2H Favorite Recipe - Caramel Apple Pie

This week at Heart 2 Heart we are featuring our favorite recipes. Now this does not have to be a recipe that you cook it can be your favorite sketch or your go to design elements. It can be one of those fun challenges where you add elements to your page as if you were using a recipe. We would love to see and hear what you come up with.

I seem to go back and forth between loving to cook and not really loving it so much. One thing is for sure. I love collecting recipe's. Sadly I have lost some of my favorites over the years due to moving, moving, and moving again. I mainly cook but I like to dabble in baking and a few years ago I decided to tackle a pie for the first time!

I scoured the internet for the perfect pie and came across this one at Allrecipes it turned out perfect! I knew I had a keeper on my hands. I have made it two more times and each time it is just soooo good! Last year I also took a few photos while I made it so I thought I would put it in my recipe book featuring my favorites. That way I wont lose my beloved recipes anymore.

I hope you have time to try it and that you love it. I used the adorable new I Heart Us kit

Make sure you check out what the other designers came up with over at H2H and link up your project.

SNS Layout Sketch #170 - Date Night

Here is what I came up with this week for this fun sketch. We went to Florida in November and after record breaking temperatures here in Illinois this week I am missing it terribly. Since we are stuck here working I could at least scrapbook it and remember how wonderfully warm the sand was between my toes.

When we  were in Florida a few years ago we went down to Fort Myers and tried to catch a sunset but it was overcast. This time we tried again and were not disappointed. Ever since I was a little girl I have loved shadow photos in front of sunsets. They used to have several cards like that at Hallmark in the late 70's early 80's, does anyone remember that?



Here is a close up of my little Date Night title. I cut it out from a picture my life card and then thought this sticker was just perfect.


I have to say I love how this all came together. I have had this CTMH No Worries paper for quite a while and have used a little of it here and there. I was afraid the background would fight again the sunset in the photo but it really complimented it instead.


Here is the sketch, we would love to see what you come up with over at the Sketch N Scrap blog.

H2H Creative Cards

Today over at Heart 2 Heart challenges we are featuring creative cards...so any card in any shape except your standard A2 card (4 1/4" x 5 1/2").

I personally love making little 3 x 3 cards. My hubby drives a semi over the road so he is gone for several days each week. I like having these on hand to I can toss them in his bag here and there. These are also fun to toss in a child's lunch or to attach to a gift bag.


3 x 3 cards are also a perfect way to use up your scraps. I have been having lots of fun with the new paper pack Something Fierce and with this card I added in the must have January Stamp of the Month Card Captions

Come and show us your cards we would love to see them over at H2H and make sure you check out the other designers too.

SNS Layout Sketch #169 - Rawr means FUN

Here is what I came up with this week for this fun sketch. My daughter sends me photos of the grand-kids all the time and I have to say it is the highlight of my day! When I saw these pics of my youngest granddaughter I knew I had to use this adorable new Something Fierce paper from CTMH.


Here is a close up of the journaling block. 




I really enjoyed the details of this sketch, I just love stitching. One of my favorite new toys is the Decorative Border thin cuts. They add the extra little something here and there.


Here is the sketch, we would love to see what you come up with over at the Sketch N Scrap blog.

H2H - The Important Things...the Grandparent Version

Over at the Heart 2 Heart blog we decided to kick off the New Year with the Important Things. We could go any direction we wanted with this one and I decided to make a fun little mini album using a little tin that I got probably 15 years ago way back when Scrapbook Stores were on every corner.  So for 15+ years I have been waiting for just the perfect time to use this and what better use than featuring the sweet little grandbabies?

I used the fun new Something Fierce kit along with the puffy stickers {swoon-I had the best puffy sticker collection when I was in elementary school}


Here is the inside of the tin. This is the size of an Altoids tin so if you have any laying around you can re-purpose them into fun little mini albums.


The album is all connected in an accordion style and zig-zags back and forth.  I did every other "page" a photo of one of our grandbabies and the other "page" some hand written fun important things to remember as a grandparent..like eating desert first.


On the flip side I have the rest of our grandkids (we currently have 5) I also printed out a sibling photo of each of the families to include as well.


Here you can see the folds. I also just left the bottom empty since the album will sit in there.


Here is one final look at my little mini album featuring The Important Grandparent Things.


We would love to see what is important to you this month over at the Heart 2 Heart Blog.
