Over at Bitten by the Bug 2 we are celebrating Grandparents.
I was struggling with this challenge but in remembering my Nana, I thought of her Oatmeal Cookies. We lived about three hours away from them and whenever we would go for a visit, she would have a batch of these cookies made for us. Sometimes she would just be taking them out of the oven as we arrived. They were so delicious, warm and gooey. My brothers, cousin and I still make them, especially for special occasions when we are together.
I used Country Life for the top line and Cricut Sans for the second line. The second line is cut from brown vinyl which I like to use for smaller fonts. The platter is from the Sweet Shop cartridge and I resized it slightly by taking off the ratio aspect and making it taller without making it wider. The cookies are from Sesame Street Friends I only used one layer from the cut which was the solid layer. Running them through my Cuttlebug with a Sizzix 3D embossing folder called Cobblestone. I think it did a good job of giving them texture close to real oatmeal cookies. I touched the edges and tops of the bumps with Distress Ink on my blending tool.
This is a 8.5 x 5.5″ page that will go into a cookbook I am making for my children, hopefully by Christmas. I plan to use a mini three ring binder and page protectors so that I can make personal pages for each of their favorite recipes. This recipe card isn’t glued down yet because I am hoping I can find the recipe in Nana’s original handwriting.
Celebrate grandparents using your Cricut and share your project over at Bitten by the Bug 2 by September 26th. – Denise.
