Cooking Utensil Organization by Billie St Clair

Hi Friends!
Thanks for stopping by today!  Billie here with my final DT project for Scrapbook Pal.  It’s a bittersweet moment, for sure!  I’ve really enjoyed working with this DT and must say that it’s been my favorite so far!  Okay, enough sappiness!
I need some organization for my cooking utensils, so when I bought this giant can of tomatoes (to make & freeze homemade pasta sauce), I knew I was going to save it for this exact project!  It’s been sitting in my scraproom for months waiting for me to get around to making it.  Well, today is the day………….  :-)
Because this is going in my kitchen and because of it’s round shape, I kept it super simple!  For the blue, scalloped pieces at the top and bottom, I used Elegant Edges.  I cut three pieces for the top and three pieces for the bottom, glued them together, inked them and adhered them. 
For the sentiment, I cut the shape using From My Kitchen.  I cut one on the red paper and one on the white paper and layered them on top of one another.  I printed the “You cook it…You clean it!” text on my printer.  My people are HORRIBLE about saying they want to cook something and then leaving the mess for me to clean up.  I doubt this will help, but it’s worth a try, right?  ;-)
I hope you’re inspired to use some of your soup, tomato, veggie cans, etc for a project!  Help keep those cans out of the landfill, organize your space and have fun with them! 
Thanks for stopping by!
These are the products I’ve used on this project:

Christmas Cutie by Heather Peterson

Hi everyone!! I hope you are having a festive holiday season! This is Heather and I am back today with another Christmas themed layout! You might be aware of a very popular trend in paper crafting right now, and that is chevrons. I love this look, and have seen so many fun ways to reproduce it on projects. This is my version of a chevron look using the Teresa Collins Sophisticated cartridge! If you use the 'border' function on the cartridge there are both a zig zag and what looks like a rik rak shape border cuts. I chose the zig zag and then used my gypsy to weld two of the shapes together. 

Here is the end result:
To begin I took a basic white piece of cardstock and sprayed it with some red and green glimmer mist. I tried to depress the spray nozzle a little slower in order to get the bigger splatters as opposed to a finer mist look.
I cut the zig zag shape 5 times using different coordinating patterned papers, and then laid them out on my background page. Because the zig zags were on the thinner side, I used my zig glue pen to easily apply adhesive.
I created a little cluster in the lower left corner using coordinating stickers and embellishments.
I also used coordinating stickers to create my title. I like to use sticker letters for my title to finish my layout quickly and easily.
Lastly, I fussy cut some cute phrases from one of the patterned papers using myCutter Bee fine tip scissors, and then layered them in a cluster in the upper left corner over some fun washi tape and stickers. I adhered some of the phrases with foam dots to add some more dimension.

Thank you for stopping by to see my project today, and be sure to check out my complete supply list:

Gift Card Holder by Billie St Clair

Billie here with a gift card holder for our Scrapbook Pal DT.  I created this for my son’s birthday.  He loves the outdoors and loves to hunt, so………a Bambi and outdoorsy card it was! 
This photo is what the front of the gift card envelope looks like.
This photo is of the inside of the gift card holder.  No!  I didn’t *really* give him a gift card to HEB (that’s a grocery store in Texas!!)!  He got a gift card to Game Stop…along with a couple of other things...all of which he really liked! 
Here are the products I used on this card.  As always, if you click on the icon, you will be taken to this product in the Scrapbook Pal store! 

Thanks for stopping by today……..and a VERY Merry Christmas to you & your family!!
