Creative Cuts & More Blog - Holiday Treats Apron Recipe Album Kit
Welcome Friends! It's Day 2 of the Creative Cuts & More Blog Hop. WOW! The Day 1 Designers creations were just amazing! It's wonderful to see how many different designs you can get from one kit. Well, the Holiday Treats Apron Recipe Album Kit is just as fabulous. It was so easy and fun to put this recipe album together. The die cut aprons in both the patterned paper and chipboard make it a breeze. I really love this kit! It is loaded with so much wonderful product. You can easily make several cards in addition to the Apron Album. I was thrilled when I received my kit and I am happy to feature it today.

The album base was quickly created using the kit's apron die cut patterned paper and chipboard. I added a cute gingerbread die cut from the kit to the top of the apron to accent the album title. I punched out tags from the kit's patterned paper for pockets. I also added my own embellishments (not included in the kit) to finish off the album cover:
Red Ruffle Ribbon (Bazzill), Red Dot Ribbon (Bo Bunny), Pink Brads (Bazzill), Red Ric Rac Stickers (Stampendous), Oval & Tag Punches (SU!), 3D Foam Tape (Best Creation), White Gel Pen and Stardust Stickles
The recipe page was created using one of my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies recipes. I was lucky enough to take a Doodling Class with the amazingly talented Stephanie Ackerman last year. She made these cookies for the class and I gobbled mine up. LOL! They were delicious! I just LOVE Chocolate Chip Cookies! They are great for the holidays and basically everyday. She was so sweet to give us a copy of her recipe with her super cute design. You too can get the same recipe copy here at her website. I loved decorating these aprons and I of course wanted to use some more cute die cuts, so I added a gingerbread cookie and wooden spoon. I also added my own embellishments (not included in the kit) to finish off the recipe page: Pink Gems (Doodlebug Design), Brown & Hot Pink Patterned Paper (Bo Bunny), Chocolate Chip Cookies Stamp (Hero Arts), Chocolate Chip Ink (SU!), 3D Foam Tape (Best Creation), Christmas Red Stickles and Red Polka Dot Ribbon (A Muse)
