First the layout. This is from when Elizabeth and I went to the Scrapbook Superstation in Butler and met "IRL" (in real life). I used some of the product from that shopping spree on the layout. The Oct. Afternoon journaling card, the new MM green paper, the ribbon is BG I think.
A couple of close ups:
Oct. Afternoon journaling card. I can't remember the brand of the tags. They were on a big roll.
The stuff in this corner is a mish mash of product. I used some bling, the black square button is from Making Memories Halloween line... but the words on it don't say anything about Halloween so I used it. The crocheted flower is from Imaginese, I believe... the ruler is from K&Co, it came in a little box of vinatagy tags and such, the big brad, actually both brads, are from Making Memories.
I had fun with that layout.
Oh, the journaling says:
It was such fun to meet Elizabeth "in real life". We had a really fun time and spent lots of money at the Butler scrapbook superstation.
for the Heart Spritz cookies from the last post.
I used a spritz cookie press to make these. I have 2 presses. One is battery operated, and one is a Pampered Chef one with a trigger. I prefer the latter.
1 cup of margarine or butter, softened
1/2 cup of sugar
2 1/4 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of almond extract of vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon of salt
Heat oven to 400°. Mix margarine and sugar. Stir in remaining ingredients. Place dough in cookie press. Form desired shapes on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 6-8 minutes, until set, but not brown. Makes about 5 dozen. 50 calories each.
Yep, I wasn't lying! Only 50 calories. I sprinkled the red sugar on before baking. Also, use a really old gritty cookie sheet. The cookies do not stick to the smooth teflon cookie sheets, and you'll have a hard time getting them out of the press. I also tried using parchment, but, the cookies wouldn't stick to that, so the older & grittier of a sheet you have, the better.
Enjoy! Have a great day!
