Last week I decided to take a little break from scrapbooking, because I didn't want to make another wordless layout, and knowing myself, it will be twice as hard to add journaling to the pages later, that I already shared here without words.I was debating weather or not it needs journaling. But my daughter's facial expression says it all! I loved this photo and got it printed enlarged to 5x7.
Anyway, I soon as I stepped away from my scrapbooking corner, my new inks arrived, AND... on the very same day my husband found a complete set of 8 cartridges (my Cannon printer requires this much) in the basement. REALLY? All this time I was complaining for nothing?... Now I have 3 sets... 24 cartridges... that should last me awhile.
But this page was done about two weeks ago:
It was the last day of summer. We decided to enjoy this day by doing our favorite things, taking in every minute of it...
And once again, this page was done with 6x6 papers. I like how these papers dictate the design on the page. These were the four papers I used (two of some of them):
So, while I was taking a break from scrapbooking, I enjoyed some sewing. Finally sewing on fabric this time. I was working on a little quilt. It's still in the process. I made a few simple quilts before, but this one is by far the most time consuming (something I could let myself to splurge on). But it was fun to work on. You do more folding and ironing for this style than actually sewing. Here is what I worked on:
Also, I promised a recipe of the cake for Marinushka:
1/2 stick of unsalted butter
1 cup of granulated sugar
3 eggs (lightly beaten)
4 tbsp of honey
1 tbsp vodka
1.5 tsp baking soda
3.5 cups flour.
I found an instructional video on YouTube that is very similar to how I make this cake. You may watch it here. For the filling, I used 1 can of sour cream and 3/4 cup of sugar, plus 1/4 tub of whipped topping. Happy cooking!
See you soon!
