Here is my project for you.  My theme is Thanksgiving.  I have done a 2-page layout.  The cardstock is from my stash and I think it is all Bazzill.  The printed paper and Turkey and leaves Stickers are from Reminisce from 2009.

The printing of the “tab cards” was done with the Cricut Imagine. I used the cartridges From My Kitchen and the new Imagine More.  The fun cooking words were also done on the Imagine with the same 2 cartridges.  The cardstock printed on was white from Recollections. (Michaels)

The large letters are from American Crafts and are Thickers.  The little letters are Tiny Type from Cosmo Cricket.

Here is a close-up of my “special recipe” for this layout.


Did you figure out what I did?  I made recipe box tabs and added all of my pictures from my wonderful family weekend in Ohio.

The cartridge I used was From My Kitchen for Cricut.  I was lucky enough to get my new Cricut Imagine this last week so I combine the Imagine More cartridge and “colored” each card with the Imagine.  I am loving the look I must say!  It was like getting bonus paper because I used just white cardstock for the printing.

I printed the pictures at 4 on a page on my printer and cut them apart and trimmed the white border off.


I glued each picture to the “tab card”.  I also used the From My Kitchen and Imagine More cartridges and came up with some cooking terms to add randomly to the cards.


There are 2 sets of cards because we had 2 big days of celebrating together.  Besides Thanksgiving we were celebrating a teenager birthday too! 

A trip to Ohio and a family gathering of Stauffers is not complete without a BIG meal at Marion’s Pizza.  We are all hopelessly addicted and those of us that are out of state can’t get enough when we are visiting.

I will add a picture of how I bind the cards to the page. I think it will just be with a binder clip so it can be removed and looked at.


To be eligible for MY BLOG CANDY I just ask you to use my “recipe” on a layout and expand the number of pictures beyond the normal 4 x 6 or the visible ones on the layout.  Keep it simple, I want you to have FUN!  Just do a couple, cuz you know you want to try LOL.

You can make tags and use a brad to connect them.  Of course you are only limited to your imagination here!

Just come back and post a link to your creation here!

Thanks and HAVE FUN AT THE HOP!  And don’t forget, follow my blog and become a member of the CS Divas too!

I'm soooo jealous! I"ve got the Imagine bug but not sure when to tell hubby, lol. Great Layouts!

A Sarasota said...

Ann, that is so so clever, love what you did!
Happy blog hopping,

ScrappinAnn said...

Thanks Sandy. I am really loving it but it is not compatible with the Gypsy yet. They should have said that when they sold it to us! They are so sneaky! But when the updates come it will be even more fun.
Thanks to Alecia and Sandy for the nice comments. Hope we have lots of fun today! I will be making a companion page for this layout too!

nice layout, love the colors

Lisa West said...

I just bought some recipe cards to match my "basic gray". Can't wait to use them now. I have my entry, I confess I feel it was supposed to be Thanksgiving but the challenge part itself seemed to be ideas on getting more pictures on a page. I hope this is ok, please let me know if I am wrong. I have the correct time of year but not Thanksgiving weekend. Have a great time bloghopping! Lisa

Carree Williams said...
