We're cooking at Gina K Designs!

Guess what?!

It's time for another CSS Blog hop!

Several members of the CenterStage Spotlight Alumni team have gathered some of their favorite BBQ Picnic recipes together for us to make another cookbook! The cookbook will be available for FREE over on the StampTV Freebie page for you to download and print at your leisure.

But, since we are paper crafters - we challenged them even further to make a project with their recipe in mind to share with us tonight on their blogs! (The projects are also included in photos on the recipe booklet as well.)

My recipe is for Calico Beans and my project is a pocket card to hold the recipe. Won't this be a fun way to send mail someone the recipe?

Once I decided on this recipe, I knew I wanted to use the cute kitten from the Purr-fectly Delightful stamp set and color her like a calico cat.

I colored the kitten with copics, cut her out and popped her up on a couple of big scalloped squares embossed with the cuttlebug swiss dots ef. The papers are Basic Grey's Archaic, Chocolate Brown, Pumpkin Spice and White pl. I typed the recipe on my computer and printed it on white pl paper.
Project Supplies:
Stamps: Purr-fectly Delightful
Paper: Chocolate Brown, Pumpkin Spice, White pl, Basic Grey - Archaic
Ink: Tuxedo Black, Copics (E33, E34, E35, E37, C0, C1, C2, C4, C5, C6, C7, R20, BY10, BG72, BG75, BG78).
Other: Buttons, Jute Twine, Large Eyelets, Corner Round Punch, Border Punch, Big Scalloped Square Nestibilities, Swiss Dots ef

Please check out the links of all the participating designers and then download the Recipe booklet and let us know how you like them!

I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop and all the yummy recipes the designers are sharing!
Thanks for stopping by I really appreciate it!
