Cooking on Tuesday

A simple 4 square grid took me a bit longer than I expected.  I played awhile on this page.  The subject is a day-to-day one this year as I have been doing some cooking for my parents once a week.

The papers are from October Afternoon's Public Library. The B sides are very homey.  Originally I was going to use an ivory background but changed to a warm woodgrain from Crate Paper that really makes those patterns pop.

This month my YouTube videos will feature die cutting.  The 'shelf' is cut on the Silhouette.  I started as a one color image but I cut a bunch of them and paper pieced with a little stamping and rub-ons thrown in.

Here's the video at YouTube:

And here is the sketch:

There is a reference early on to my newsletter. You can sign up for the free newsletter on the sidebar of the blog.  I'll send out one for December in a couple of weeks.

Oh and since it is Tuesday, lunch for 4 is simmering away in the crock pot.  Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. Love how you used the public library collection. Sweet layout, the embellishments are cute. How wonderful to have a day to go cook for your parents!

  2. Love this cozy and homey page, Lisa! Such a great collection to use and I love the cooking-themed embellishments.

  3. Love that LO. Such a versatile design. And you are giving me Silhouette envy!! That shelf is just too cute! Do you use your BG mat often? I'm thinking of getting a FREDv2.
    I love that you do that for your parents each week.

    1. I don't use the BG magnetic mat as often as I should. When I first got it, I was having some muscle soreness in my shoulders and we fixed it with a homemade stand so that it was propped up at an angle. It made it easier for me to not have to bend my head completely forward which was great. I don't need that now and I've just stopped using it so much deferring to my regular grided craft mat.
