Playing along with Mojo Monday #542

Today I was making applesauce from scratch. I peeled all the apples, added the ingredients into the crockpot and walked away. For 6 whole hours, that crockpot is gonna cook by itself. I love that about a crockpot. For those of you that don’t really know me, I really, really do not like to cook. I don’t like to bake. I don’t like to chop or dice or saute’. But I do it because I like to eat. I also don’t like to waste food so I’m making applesauce with a bunch of apples my kids refuse to eat because they might have a bruise, or the skin is a little wrinkly. When I do cook I rarely use a recipe. I usually cook meals that are easy to make and easy to remember. Enchiladas, tator tot casserole, macaroni and cheese with cut up hotdogs. I don’t use recipes for these types of meals. But today I needed a recipe.

I think of recipes like sketches. I don’t use them often but when I do, stuff just comes together. I like card sketches because you can make it your own while still CASEing something. If you’ve followed me long, you know I don’t create much on my own. I CASE (copy and share everything) most of what I do. I’ll change it up to my own colors or use a different stamp set but it’s still CASEing the original design. Kinda like a recipe. Today’s applesauce recipe called for honey. We were out so I substituted brown sugar. Let’s call that CASEing a recipe 🙂 I saw this week’s Mojo Monday and thought it was a perfect sketch. I love the card I came up with.

Here’s the sketch:

I used the Artistry Blooms designer series paper and the So Sentimental Stamp set and Stitched So Sweetly die cuts. I love the way it turned out and I changed it a little to make it my own.

Go try a sketch or try a recipe and put a little twist on it and make it your own. Post it in the comments and let me know!

Talk to you soon,
Your BFF,

Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop-Monochromatic

Welcome to this month’s blog hop with the Scrapbooking Global Stampin’ Up! group where we use Stampin’ Up! product to create memory pages. You are visiting Jenn Charles from the United States. I haven’t participated in a blog hop with this group in a while so I’m excited to be with them again.

This month’s blog hop is a challenge for me. Monochromatic schemes use different tones from the same angle on the color wheel (the same hue). Monochromatic color schemes are guaranteed to suit each other because they all come from the same family. Sounds easy enough right? But I’m a colorful monkey! I love lots of color! Thankfully Stampin’ Up! is full of designer series papers that all match perfectly together.

The pattern papers I used here to make the different tones of gray were Tasteful Touches Designer Series Paper and Peony Garden Designer Series Paper. They both have beautiful tones of all 3 grays that Stampin’ Up! carries. Basic Gray, Gray Granite and Smoky Slate.

To give the flowers a little texture, I ran the cardstock through the big shot using the Tasteful Texture 3D embossing folder and then punched them out with the small bloom punch.

The title is die cut using some retired dies but we have some adorable dies called Playful Alphabet that will work perfectly for scrapbook pages. I have them linked below.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Up next is Lisa Mackey. I know she will have something creative to show you all. You can click on the next button or hop around by using the links below.

Stamp ‘N Hop – More Projects with In-Colors!

Hi Friends! You are visiting Jenn Charles on today’s hop where we are showcasing more projects using the 2020-2022 In-Colors. I just can’t get enough of them!

The Flowers for Every Season designer series paper is so awesome because not only does it have every season, but it has all of the new In-Colors! I have made 4 cards using the different seasons, including a Christmas one using a simple panel card layout that you can use with any pattern paper. I love our different framelits for all our sentiments. The stamp set I used is one of my favorites called Ridiculously Awesome. The Merry Christmas sentiment is from Snowman Season. All of the products I used will be in a list below.

I can not get enough of these gorgeous colors! Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope that you have found inspiration to create your own project. Use the Next Arrow below to visit Susan Simpson.

GSF – 2020 – 2022 In-Color Blog Hop

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends In-Color Blog Hop for July! You are visiting Jenn Charles from the United States.

One of my favorite things about this year’s in-colors is how much they are in the different patterned paper that Stampin’ Up! has out. My favorite paper is the Flowers for Every Season designer series paper. Not only is it made up mainly with the 2020-2022 In-Colors but it has a variety of seasons including winter. I’m making a Christmas in July card today using this paper and the in-colors, Cinnamon Cider and Just Jade.

The stamp set I used is called Winter Woods and the sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas set. The ribbon is from the Flowers for Every season ribbon pack.

Thank you for joining us today. Up next is the talented Libby Dyson. I can’t wait to see what she has created for us. Click on the arrow to go to her blog or skip around using the list of participants below.
