Simon Says Stamp June 2016 Card Kit

I received my card kit this week and really love this kit.  The first batch of cards I am going to make will be a set of cards I am going to use for a gift.  I also made matching envelopes.  If you check back I will soon have a blog post and a video on how I made the envelopes and how I will package the cards to present as a gift!JPEG image-BC0F3B536EF3-1

So any who back to this card.  I also saw on the SSS Monday card challenge that this weeks challenge is a monochromatic theme.  So I made one more card using grey so I could enter it in the challenge.  Here is what my monochromatic card looks like:Simon Says Stamp June 2016 card kit
I am entering this card on the CAS on Sunday Challenge as well.
I made a video showing you how I made the card.  I hope you like it.  Go do something creative today!

Below is an affiliate link to the card kit if you are interested in purchasing it for yourself.  I really enjoy getting these kits each month!

Paleo Granola

I found this great website called Paleo Grubs. If you are curious about making dietary changes towards Paleo there is a 14 day menu plan with recipes on this site. This recipe comes from this site.  The granola can be used as a snack or add almond milk and eat as cereal.

Instructions
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit. 2. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well. (I find it easier to melt down the coconut oil a little bit before adding it)
  2. 3. Spread mixture into one flat layer on a greased baking sheet. 4. Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until mixture is toasted to your liking. Mix every 10 minutes or so to ensure that it gets baked evenly. 5. Remove from oven and allow to cool before serving, then transfer into a plastic container to save the rest!

These pancakes freeze well if you want to use for meal prepping.  I usually eat one of these pancakes with either bacon or a chicken sausage.

Paper Smooches June Designer Challenge Entry #4!

Paper Smooches June Designer Challenge

Paper Smooches June Designer Challenge

 

Today I am entering my 4th project in the Paper Smooches June Designer Challenge.  I made a book marker using the Paper Smooches Surf & Turf stamp set,Chilly Chums and Chubby Chum Pals.  I stamped them stacking them and then colored with topic markers.  I place some brown paper underneath and then used the laminator to make a protective cover.  I am challenging myself to use the Paper Smooches stamp sets in as many ways as I can.
