Embossing by Michelle

I'm so excited that CHA Summer releases are fast approaching. I can't wait for Heather to share everything that she sees at the show too!

Well, since the rest of us that can't make it, I figured I'd share some stuff that I scrapped using the Pink Paislee Fetching line. It's just perfect for a guy! I've had this photo of Dan sitting on my desk, waiting for the right paper to be scrapped. I think its a perfect match!
I decided not to have a title for this page for the time being. Dan likes it better this way and its less chessy than what I had plans for. I'm totally digging the Jenni Bowlin journaling card with the Tim Holtz grungeboard bookplate. I stamped a woodgrain pattern and then embossed on it with some brown Zing embossing powder by American Crafts. I have always loved stamping and think I have a new love towards the art of embossing! The woodgrain paper and film strips are by Hambly Studios. And I can't forget about the key, that's also by Tim Holtz.
And here are two birthday cards I made with the American Crafts Backyard line and Craft Fair line:I made this card right in front of him and he had no idea what was going on. He was so sweet-said he always keeps all of his cards. I had fun making this. The happy birthday stamp was embossed with Zing embossing powder.
I made this with my cousin Dominique in mind. The owls are too cute, I had to incorporate them into the card title work. Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to check back tomorrow for lots more great work by the DT.

I think I may have to check out some of that AC embossing powder. I've never been an embosser but I think it was the powders. I love how that came out! I love the lack of title as well. Everything doesn't need a title. I think the key says it all.

Scrapbooking Recipes

With the holidays coming so fast we need more hours in our day. One way I've found to help is quick and easy meals. Here is one that I love to use when I have a full day.

Lazy Log Cabin Casserole:

1lb stew meat cubed
1 can of Cream of Celery
1 can of Cram of Mushroom
1 packet of Beef Onion Soup (I don't use this. I just add salt, pepper, garlic powder and dried minced onions but I'm an eye ball cook)
Toss all this in the crock pot together give it a stir put it on low and cook it for 6 - 8 hours. Home cooked meal with just a few moments prep. Put a salad bag with it and your hubby can't be upset that there isn't a home cooked meal on the table.
