Bake Sale Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone and Welcome to the Bake Sale Blog Hop!

So glad you could join us!!  If you’ve just come from Crazy About Cricut, you’re at the right place.  If you want to start from the beginning, hop back to Carson’s Creations.  Georgiana is one of our co-hosts for the hop today, along with Cheryl from Cards by CG.  When Georgiana asked me to be in the hop, I was so excited!  This is my first hop, and it challenged me to think beyond making cards and layouts.  I didn't bake anything, but rather was thinking more behind the scenes on where the baking takes place, and the tools needed to turn out those delicious baked goods.  So here’s my project for Day 1 – wall art for the home!

Cartridge:  From My Kitchen
                   Utensils cut at 8.5” and shadowed
                   Words cut at 1.5”, but “whisk” was cut at 1.25”
                   Rolling Pin cut at 11.5” and shadowed
Embossing Folders:
                   Sizzix Wild Dashes (starter kit) for the rolling pin
                   Cuttlebug Herringbone for the center of the spoon
Paper:        DCWV Nana’s Kitchen for the background
                   DCWV Seasons Scrapbook Stack for the solid textured colors
Bronze brads from stash
Record Album Display Frame, 12.5 x 12.5

This project was so much fun to make.  I discovered that I really like making these larger cuts on my Expression.  And the framed art looks great in my kitchen!

So what do you think?  I have some candy to give away.  Just leave a comment on this post.  You don’t have to be a follower, but I’d appreciate it if you were.  Make sure you leave a way for me to get in touch with you if you are the winner.  I will draw a winner using on Monday night, May 16.  Leaving comments on the next two day's posts will give you extra chances to win.
Here’s a set of “Party Invite” stamps by Stampendous, some “baking” stamps, Celebrate rub-ons, and of course, we can't forget the bling!

If you think you missed anyone along the way, here’s the full line-up for the hop:
