100th Post For 2008!!

And it's filled with goodies!

This is my latest DT project from My Acrylic Album. I must admit, when I first received this jar album, I had no idea which direction I was going to take it in. I peeked at a couple projects from fellow DT members and thought "how stinkin' cute, why didn't I think of that?" and then finally an idea hit me like a ton of bricks. I designed this album to look like the mason jars that I've seen filled with all of the ingredients needed to make baked goodies. ..you've seen those before, right? Really clever and they make great gifts! Anyway, I used Queen & Co self adhesive felt flourishes on the lid of the album to look like this cookie jar we had when I was a kid- I had forgotten all about it until now! The album is filled with photos and the recipes of some of the cookies that I bake for our family every Christmas.

You can purchase this album or any one of the fantastic acrylic albums here!

All of the cream colored lace and the sheer ribbons were provided by savvynsassy.

I created this cookie using one of those chipboard circles by Bazzill. I cut it with shaped scissors to create the "bite mark", sanded it, painted it, inked it, and then added "chocolate chips" with brown acrylic paint.

I printed each recipe on red cardstock, tore and inked the edges before adhering to the album. The stamped hearts are from Penguin Pants and were also included in this DT shipment- they were so fun to work with! Check 'em out here.

TFL!
