Carta Bella's "Homemade With Love" isn't new,
but you gotta love this vintage cooking collection.
You could also use the mixer die from the Echo Park
collection we looked at yesterday with this collection.
It works with both.
These papers from Canvas Corp are so versatile
You have the page on the right with all of the 
items you can cut out and use.
Then there are recipe cards in
 kraft, ivory, and white cardstock.
I photographed only the kraft ones.
Then there are the cut out pages where you
can get your labels for the different categories.
Mix them up with the Echo Park and Carta Bella Collections
to add some color.
The possibilities are limitless!

So come pick up some of these wonderful
collections and have FUN!

It is COLD!
Cat used AdornIts' "Snow Days" collection for
pictures of her two newest puppies' first snow!

buttons make.

Cat created this layout recently using Kaisercraft's Basecoat collection.
I love these papers and love how Cat cut the planks apart and used them
as embellishments.
Then she used another piece from the collection as the photo mat.
The title was created by the subject of the layout, Ray!
Ray created the title with his trusty laser!
Cat repeated cutting apart the planks and using them as borders on this page.
She used some twine/yarn as more embellishments.
Ray has the same routine as my husband!

There are so many beautiful papers in this collection.
Be sure you check it out the next time you are at the store.
It goes with so many other collections.

Cat created these layouts of her adorable dachshunds 
using AdornIt's new collection, "Hound Dog".
This page is filled with lots of great elements tucked
around the photos.
The facing page of Cat's two page layout.
More great photos of those cute dachshunds!
Don't you love those tags, labels, and 
tickets look like they are tucked behind the photos!?  
Instead, it is just strategic placement of the photos.
This is a great layout and accommodates
SIX photos!
 Dog Tags 12x12
 Here is the "Dog Tags" page from the collection.
Cat cut out the tags from this page and tucked them 
behind the photos on one of her pages.
She did quite a bit of "fussy cutting" on her layouts.
