I was torn between two recipes for the latest cookbook swap page. One was fast, the other took time, but both resulted in a fabulous slice of carbohydrates and were relatively easy to make.
As I was unable to choose one, I chose both.
Each recipe is tucked in a pocket on a common piece of kraft cardstock.
The fast recipe, Acme Steakhouse Dinner Rolls, uses frozen bread dough or frozen Parker House Rolls. The bunny is from Cricut’s Four Legged Friends, the fridge is “From the Kitchen”, and the flowers are from Flower Shoppe. I typed and printed the shopping list and trimmed it to size. And no, the recipe doesn’t call for alfalfa – it’s on the list for the bunny.
And on the other side, the turtle with her dutch oven and a blue and white winner’s flag. This page features the turtle from Four Legged Friends, the dutch oven from Paper Doll Dress Up, and a Silhouette checkered flag. The grass is from Zoo Balloo.
The patterned paper pouch is from Crate Paper and it provided most of the color inspiration for this project. Only two more pages left to create and swap. Next up is sweets.
Here is my very first 6×6 recipe page for an exchange. Each of us makes 10 pages of our selected recipe in each of six categories. At the end of the exchange, each of us will have a 60 page recipe book – and the list of recipes is pretty darn amazing – here’s hoping that mine will be well received for both Cricut skill and the provided recipe. First up is appetizers. You can see Diane’s delightful Stuffed Mushroom page here: http://horsebunny.blogspot.com/2012/01/stuffed-mushrooms-recipe-card.html
I used Country Life, Serenade, Luau, and Mother’s Day Bouquet to make my page.
The cook and the sunset in the back of the scene are from Country Life. In order to turn the “sunrise” into a sunset, I simply omitted the first layer in the cut and punched a large circle. To make the setting sun more dimensional, I shaded the circle with Copics and of course added the Glossy Accents.
The tomato plant is from Serenade and it is a fern branch. The tomatoes are from my Crop A Dile (the smallest punch). I think the flowerpot is from Serenade and it is colored with Copics too.
The party lanterns are from Luau and have a vellum layer to simulate a “glow.”
The cypress tree is from Mother’s Day bouquet – it’s a leaf made long and skinny courtesy of the Cricut Craft Room. The trunk is simply colored with a Copic pen.
The sunflower is from Mother’s Day too – I think. I colored in the center of the flower as the size was relatively small.
The platter is a modified circle from Cricut Craft Room and the three tartlets are from my Crop a Dile as well.
I will be supplying the recipe separately so my fellow exchangers can either attach it to the back of the page or leave it unattached for easy access from the page protector.
It may be time to invest in the pop-dot market as there are nine more to assemble; however, the cutting is complete!
