A Catch Up Of Some Projects!

With all the excitement of announcements and blog candy I thought I would slow down and catch my breath and show you sme projects I haven't posted yet!

This recipe swap was for the theme of Grilling! When we lived in America we became BIG fans of Cajun cooking and all of our visitors got introduced to this fabulous cuisine. Of course I HAD to bring a little bit of Cajun home with me - and many of our friends have enjoyed Cajun Blackened Fish on BBQ days at our house - so what better recipe to share with my fellow swappers. I paper pieced my favourite SU chef and popped some black pearl buttons on his top - very swish! A vibrant little fish from Fishy Friends (retired SU) looks quite happy on Cheffie's platter popped up on Dimensionals - hope he stays that way - LOL! Some Circle Circus stamped on the background for bubbles and a colour scheme to suit the recipe and I was done - and then 6 more needed to send off!

This is the other Card and Tag set I made for my library workshop - see here for the one we'll actually be making on the day and the class info. I wanted to show how the same concept can look soo different with DP. I LOVE this Ski Slope DP - think I have enough stocked for the next 10 years - LOL. I have 3D'd the Christmas tree by stamping and cutting out 3 extras on Old Olive and folding them in half before gluing them together - perfect for the recessed window card! A star brad on top hides the slightly messy top where all the points meet!

And this is the little box and bow we'll be making on the day! The box idea comes from the lovely Stampin' Alley and is 2 1/2" square. The bow is a smaller version of Dawn's from her video here. The bow dawn makes is pretty big so I needed to adjust the measurements to fit this cute box! Wouldn't these look great at each table setting on your Christmas table?

Whew, you have been busy! All of your projects are first class! Love the chef, I have this set and I love it. Clever to use it for a recipe swap, perfect. Card and tag are so nice too. Yes, the box and bow would make great small gifts to put at each table setting and wouldn't the table be so festive. Great work, TFS everything.
