Recipe Swap Page Raspberry Cake Bars

I participated in a Recipe Page Swap last month. Sadly the organizer had a family emergency so I don't have the whole book completed but thought I'd share a page here. There were 4 groups (6x6s and 8x8s) and I participated in all of them! I made 81 pages in 2 months which kind of shocked myself but I was motivated. I was going to give 2 of these away as gifts but that will have to wait till next year, oh well. I already shared 2 on the Cricut circle messageboards but thought I'd share 1 more today.
I used the Christmas, and From My Kitchen cartridges which I totally bought just for this swap.
Papers are from my stash and Die Cuts with a View Luxury collection.
Bling, ribbon are from my stash and I made the recipe card using digital files from Cosmo Cricket which I bought from Jessica Sprague. The title font is called Buttercream which I purchased from Lettering delights.

Creative Summit Event

If you know me you know I love online classes/events. However there is something I love more...FREE online classes/events. Just heard about this one through Heidi Swapp's blog (she's participating). Sounds great with tons of fabulous teachers and I've already signed up!

In the light, to show shimmer

Tim Holtz 12 tags Day 1

I decided to take part (partially) in Tim Holtz's 12 tags of Christmas blog event. It is where he creates 1 tag a day and shares it with everyone on his blog. I actually had never heard of it until a friend of mine mentioned it a couple of months ago. I like it because even if you don't have his products you can still adapt it to make your own version. For example I basically only have his inks, no stamps or dies. Instead I will be using my Cricut machine.
This is my version of Day 1 which I absolutely loved!
carts used:
Blackletter font from my Gypsy device
Christmas solutions cartridge for the holly leaves and greenery.
Art Philosophy  for the "pinecones"
Tags, Bags Boxes for the actual tag using TH distress cardstock
pearls, white paint, acrylic drops, glitter, white crinkle ribbon from my stash
Snowflake cuttlebug embossing folder

Love the sparkle!
