Good Monday morning to you all. Today the Design Team of Crafty Secrets will be posting projects with a Cooking and/or Kitchen Theme. We also have a talented crafter joing us today and she is no other then Julie Campbell. It is so exciting to see what everyone comes up with. Each and every DT members has their own unique style. So I hope that you all have a grand time and get some inspiration from our projects.
My first project is a Recipe Box. For this project I used paper from the Raidiant Paper Designs, stickers from the "What's Cooking" Vintage Stickers, images from the "Homemade" Images and Journal Notes, and stamps from the "Kitchen Classic", "Little Chef" and "Wine Lovers" stamp sets of Crafty Secrets Clear Art Stamps.
My second project is Shortbread Cookies Baggies giveaway for Christmas. I stamped some Snowflakes from the "Vintage Christmas" stamp set with Opaque White Stazon Ink on the clear plastic bag. Tag was made using 2 other images from the same stamp set and it was colored with Copic markers.
And lastly, I would like to share with you the recipe I used for the Shortbread Cookies. It is no easy to make and tastes real good.
1 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup potato flour or potato starch
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
50 grams sliced blanched almonds
Sieve potato flour and all purpose flour together. Cream butter, add sugar and blend well. Add vanilla and mix. Graudally add in flour to butter mixture. Knead the dough for a few minutes. It it is too sticky, add a little more flour. Slightly crush sliced almonds by hand, then mix well with dough. Roll in little balls and tap with fork dipped in flour. Bake at 325 degrees oven for 20-25 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!
Now it is time to take a look at the other DT members and our guest designer to see what they have in store for you today.
