Cookin' with SABOR

Hi guys, Jean here today, it's SUNDAY.

First, I must say....Our Design Team Artists are truly creating spectacular projects this month.   Please comment to let them know you appreciate their work. Everyone enjoys a pat on the back, it feels GOOD!

My plan is to create a cookbook with Sabor papers for this week and next.  


I do very much like to cook and entertain, always have from the time I was a kid and experimented in Mom's kitchen, doesn't every kid make poached pear crepes for her sleepovers?

We hold all sorts of parties, Pie Fest in the Fall, Shrimp Boil in the Spring, birthday bashes for friends...... 

and just good old Bunco, cards and 'it's time for wine' gatherings!  

I am using Sabor papers to make my cookbook festive and visually fun.    I like to use three ring binders so that I can add new items as I choose in plastic sleeves. I personalize and give some of these as wedding shower or housewarming gifts, maybe including some ingredients too!   Here is an example of one recipe for my niece.... I add family photos to capture the moment in time.   I think it makes for a fun remembrance.

I will use Sabor Papers to cover the binder, inside and out and for dividers between the food sections.  I am using cards from the Recuerdos Ole sheet for the food categories and color coordinated paper for each section, hot pink for desserts, turquoise for appetizers, etc.  


I am hoping you will visit again next week for the finished project with embellishments and fun recipes.

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle.

Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today.

One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer above used th…

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.

With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 

Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.

Cut a panel of card stock to fit inside the 6 1/4 Commercial (letter) envelope.  Att…
