I have a couple of different projects to share with you today.  The 3 cartridges I chose to work with Pagoda, George and Basic Shapes, and From My Kitchen. Here is my first project..
up close of title...
This is a recipe page in my smash book. We have a favorite family recipe for apple cake and everyone just loves it! I cut the recipe card at 4 inches using the From My Kitchen cartridge. I also cut the measuring utensils (from the same cart) at 2 1/2 inches. I used George and Basic Shapes cartridge to cut the title at 3/4 inches. I used MME papers, Kraft cardstock and some misc. stickers. I inked all of the edges with Vintage photo ink. This came together really quick and now I won't lose my favorite recipe!

Here's my next project..

I used the Pagoda cartridge for the cute little Panda. I cut him out at 3 inches. I stamped the sentiment, added washi tape, tied a bow with a couple of strands of twine, and used a border punch on the bottom of the accent piece. Another fast and easy project! 

Hope you like my creations today! As always, thank you so much for stopping by!! :)
