Make Up Monday -- 2/18/2013
Here at Cookin' Up Creations, we're having fun this month with "New Recipes for Scrappin'". Our daily Blue Plate Specials are recipe challenges and are sure to stir up your creativity!
Here's a recap of the past week's challenges:
On Technique Tuesday, Cassy shared a recipe for making homemade marshmallows (a must-try for sure), along with a challenge to use something fluffy (like a marshmallow), as well as something brown (like a toasted marshmallow) and to create a chevron border. Here is her lovely example:
For What's New Wednesday, Michelle used the components of decorating a cake to build her challenge: to use decorative borders, letters, flowers and two different patterns on our project. Here is her beautifully decorated example:
On Toss Up Thursday, Jo took a note from bakers of the past and asked us to use baker's twine on our projects. And here is her beautifully wrapped example:
On Focus Friday, Annette asked us to use a recipe-style index card with tab (the kind that you find in recipe boxes) for our journaling, along with a handmade journaling label. Here is her adorable example:
Annie brought us Sketchy Saturday, with a sketch from ScrapFriends. She also asked us to conjour up our own recipe of "Love Potion #9" by using nine different embellishments and photos of people we love on our layout. And here is her love-ly example:
Sunday's Inspiration came from Barb, who asked us to visit The Color Rooms and choose a palette for our project. Here is Barb's colorful example, using a palette of red, light blue, green and teal:
You still have plenty of time to join in the February Blue Plate Special challenges on the Cookin' Up Creations forum! The deadline is March 3, and each challenge that you complete will give you one entry into this month's Dessert Tray prize drawing. So .... let's get cookin'!
