I would absolutely love to get everyone I've met here in blog land together for a massive BBQ and crafting weekend. Wouldn't that just be a hoot! I honestly doubt we'd get much crafting done, but oh the laughs and memories. The thought came to me while making this card for our current challenge at Our Creative Corner, hosted by the very talented master of all papers, Meihsia. She has decided the super cool theme for this week as SIMPLE and CLEAN KITCHEN. The oxymoron there, nothing is ever done simply in my kitchen and when it's finally done, it's never clean! However, the challenge IS so much fun! Meihsia asks that you use something on your card that you'd find in your kitchen. I picked a knife, fork, spoon and napkin.
It may not look like the traditional CAS card, but I did research, yes...I have that much trouble with CAS cards, and found that as long as the focal point is the only thing on a card and nothing else to distract from it, it qualifies as CAS. So, I researched some more on fancy folded napkins and couldn't get the two sheets of paper to look anything like what I'd seen, so I just began folding and folding and refolding until I came up with this design. Punched a brad through the center to hold it, added some tulle and pearls and a little menu tag, stuck it to a Top Note Die card and viola done. OOPS! Forgot the silverware. Back to The Graphics Fairy I went and now it's complete.
So, what's in your kitchen??
We would love to see your creative take on the culinary tools and if you need more inspiration, please check out the wonderful creations of my teammates at
