Seasonal Chums Kitchen Table Stamper Wonder Recipe #5

Seasonal Chums Wonder Recipe #5
Hey Guys! I am so excited to share the first Christmas card of the season with this Seasonal Chums Wonder Recipe #5 Card.

What is a Wonder Recipe? It’s a 6×6 One Sheet Wonder. I have designed a series of cutting diagrams for a 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper and this is #5 in the series. Wonder Recipe #5 will produce four cards from one sheet of 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.

I used Stampin’ Up Seasonal Chums stamp set and Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper. Both of those items are now available from the 2017 Stampin Up Holiday Catalog.

Enjoy the video tutorial and the printable project sheet below. I would love to see what you do with the Wonder Recipe.

Gather your Stampin Up supplies and give this 6×6 One Sheet Wonder a try. If you feel like sharing, join me in the Kitchen Table Stamper Craft Social on Facebook.

Christmas Cheer Cookie Exchange – Part TWO

Hi Guys! I am back with part two of Christmas tags and cookie exchange packaging just like I promised. Enjoy the last of my holiday inspired posts.

Although these are not Stampin’ Up!, they really added to our festive atmosphere at the Wrap It Up for the Holidays event so I had to share. Mickey brought her fudge, brownies and cookies all wrapped up in these CUTE reindeer boxes from Michael’s.

rudolph-mickey

If you have never been to one of my events, and you live in the Chicago area, please consider coming! We have so much fun. All adult crafters are welcome.

Next thing I want to share is this pretty Christmas tag made by Jackie. I love how she used the Mini Pompom Trim to make a snow-y roof on her gingerbread house turned bird house. CUTE! I won’t dwell on it too long though, because the Candy Cane Lane DSP sold out quickly on the Closeout Sale.

Don’t be like me, get the stuff while it’s on sale and before it sells out!

Candy Cane Lane DSP

Last up is this cute little mini mug. Jackie made it. She got the idea from a UK (I think) SU! demo named Heidi. Don’t worry, I am going to show you how to make one on Monday’s blog post. These mini mugs are way too cute for me to just show a picture and tease you without some directions, right?!

Candy Cane Lane DSP

I just finished making a REALLY cute Valentine mini mug with Stampin’ Up! Pinecones & Presents DSP which is on Closeout! Whoop! Please come back Monday and see.

I am so glad you stop by to see what’s going on here at Kitchen Table Stamper. I will be back after Christmas. See ya then.

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Cheer Cookie Exchange – Part One

Festive Flower Builder Punch 139682
Hi Guys! I promised I would share some of the beautiful cookie packaging from our Wrap It Up for the Holidays event, so here goes! Enjoy this two part post, the second installment is coming tomorrow.

This first lovely tag was my favorite, although there were so many beautiful and festive designs. It was made by Katie. When I saw it, I gasped a little.

It’s made with the Stampin’ Up! Festive Flower Builder Punch (139682). Wanna hear something sad? I passed up this punch when it was on sale. I wish I bought it!

This second tag is the Christmas tag that I made for my cookies. It features Santa’s Sleigh from Stampin’ Up!. You can get Santa’s Sleigh and the Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits Dies together (143499) with the bundle discount now through January 3rd.

Santa’s Sleigh and many other bundles won’t be offered with the bundle pricing in the future. Don’t be like me and wish you got it while it was on sale! Be sure to check out the Closeout Sale.

Santas Sleigh Bundle 143499

I made my Grandma’s potato chip cookies for the cookie exchange. They turned out excellent – just like I remember! If you try them sometime, please let me know how you like them. I am happy to share this family recipe with you. Thank you for stopping by. Enjoy!

Rosemary’s Potato Chip Cookies

3 c. Sifted Flour
2 C. Butter – softened
2 Egg Yolks
2 c. Powdered Sugar + more for dusting
2 t. Vanilla Extract
2 c. Crushed Potato Chips
1 c. Chopped Walnuts

Cream butter and sugar together. Add egg yolks and vanilla, blend well. Add flour gradually, be sure not to over mix. Fold in potato chips and nuts. Drop on ungreased cookie sheet with a teaspoon or small disher. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Cool completely and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

I like these a day or two later as the potato chips become more a part of the butter and sugar and flour. They really are delicious.

Cozy Critters Host Only 142214

Hey Guys! I got one thing to say today – Crafty Girls Do What They Want. Yup. It’s true. Can you see what I mean? I totally twisted the Paper & Ink Sketch #1. I turned it portrait!

The snowdrift (made with the irresistible and totally on Closeout) Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Dies is in place of the ribbon and the fox from Cozy Critters is in place of the bow. See it?
