Stamp Simply Celebration HAS BEGUN!!
Today is the 1st of several fun filled days over on Sharon Johnson's blog and you are all invited!!! Sharon has set up a TAB on her blog (called THIS IS PARTY CENTRAL) where you can go to see what is scheduled for each day of this celebration! The tab is located in the top right corner above her banner picture ... or you can click on the word TAB above to get you there. Keep in mind, this is a guideline of what's to come ... but won't be activated until the actual day of the event.
Anyone can play ANY of the challenges by ANY of the hostesses during our 12 days of Stamp Simply Celebrates!!! You DO NOT have to have a Blog to play — uploading your project to SCS (Splitcoaststampers.com) is not only permissible, but HIGHLY ENCOURAGED. When doing so, use the KEYWORD SSC08. Thanks!
FIRST up is Janine Orchard- 2bKrafty with a COOKIE RECIPE EXCHANGE!!
We were to choose our favorite cookie recipe ... bake them up ... then package them up nice & pretty! Please check out Janine's blog for all the details. (She has even more fun up her sleeve than what I've told you here!!! )
Here is my contribution! My daughter makes all the "fancy" holiday cookies ... I make the old favorite "Chocolate Chip". I have put a little twist to the recipe though ... I've added "Macadamia" nuts & some "white chocolate" morsels along with the chocolate morsels in my recipe. Otherwise, it's the recipe on the Nestle's Toll House morsels bag. My gift box is 6 x 6 x 2 and I've used my new JustRite (Christmas Stamp Ensemble) to help me decorate the lid. I also used a snowflake stamp by Inkadinkado stamped with Versamark and a little diamond Stickles for the sparkly centers. I thought it would be nice if I had a little matching candy box made from clear acetate to go along with the cookie package. If you'd like more details, just leave me a comment and I'll get that information to you!
