Cooking up at Allsorts



A very Good Morning to you all, Saturday morning can mean only one thing, a new challenge at Allsorts and this week my lovely teamie Helene wants us to 'Use a Cooking Recipe'.

But first I want to tell you all about our second Birthday celebrations at Stampalot Challenge which kick off on 1st April. I've come me up with a little sidebar logo and hope you will help us spread the word. If you have any problems with this one.....it worked for some of the DT fine, but Blogger didn't want me to use it despite re-sizing it so in the end I did a low resolution one as well which is on by sidebar.

Now my DT piece and confessions here, I was really stumped at first, after spending hours trawling through my stamps I drew a blank with anything cookery orientated, not surprising I guess when most of my stamps are floral, botanical or fantasy. But then I had a flash of inspiration and came up with a recipe holder which I thought might even be useful for one of the girls.


I made the folder using a scoring tool and covered with some Kaiser DP's, decorated it with borders cut from Spellbinders and the letters are cut on the Cricut. I sourced the recipes on line, mounted them on to cardstock and did a bit of stamping using one of my tiny collection of just seven Clarity stamps......I really do 'need' more of them.

Have a good weekend.

This is delightful & I love the way you have stamped those swirls into the corners of the Recipe panel. The tiny scalloped circles pick up the scalloping of the swirls in the patterned paper beautifully too. These colours are lovely & muted & utterly classic.

What a lovely recipe holder Brenda and what a good idea. Definitely thinking outside the box!

Looking forward to seeing your new puppy. I've kinda lost track of how many dogs you have!? I would have more than 2 but I was probably lucky to get away with 2. Not sure if my dogs could cope with a wee dog, they're a bit clumsy to say the least!

Take care,

Kat xx

Fabulous job Brenda. Excellent way to store all your favourite recipes. The cover stamps are gorgeous and I agree everyone should have the largest supply possible of Clarity stamps! Enjoy the rest of the weekend Jox
