I go from Cricut crazy to Stampin' Crazy to card making crazy. No rhyme or reason I just have these spurts. Well when I saw the challenge over at Scrappy Mom's I wanted to jump right in. My hubby is coming home today so I think this maybe an end to my blogging every day with projects for awhile..sniff sniff. Their challenge is to use your Preserves cartridge. I don't know if people realize what goodies this cartridge has on it and it is NOT all about food. There are some amazing shapes, labels and tags. I did two entries into this contest.
For my first project I wanted to do a simple card using my (yeah!) scraps from a recent project I just completed. I used their A pinch & A Dash stamp set. This is such a great set and has endless possibilities. When I was cutting out the leaves I was using a scrap piece of green card stock that I had stamped with my Market Street Sweet Lace background stamp. The cut calls for covering it up but I liked how it looked so I left it!
For my second entry..well I decided to bake! I recently just purchased 10lbs yes 10lbs of handpicked blueberries and split it with my neighbor. Not sure if I will ever do that again since a HUGE majority came with those little stems and that was not fun pulling them off all of them. I love to bake for all my neighbors so I decided to come up with a cute "personal" idea. I made these mini lattic blueberry pies and this simple but cute tag to go with it. I did a French pie crust which was so flaky it was hard to work with. Think I may stick with buying a premade pie crust to speed up the process next time..uggh did I make a mess!
Now don't laugh!!! I couldn't really get a good picture of it or decide which one I liked the best so I just posted them all! If anyone wants some blueberry pies I got a gazillion and a half of them. They range from tiny to big, to blueberry scones with lemon glaze and a blueberry cream pie..>Getting hungry???
