11  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / HELP! How should I finish this Pac-man card? on: July 12, 2012 08:17:50 AM
I got all excited to make this card, but I'm afraid that I concentrated too much on the part that I've already made, and I don't know what else I need to do! 

I don't know if I want to add a sentiment or not, or if I should just keep it a blank card.  What do y'all think is missing? 

Here you can see the front of the card.  The inside is just white.  (These photos show how the card is interactive, and lets you "play" Pac-Man.)


Pinky is chasing Pac-man through the game... and...



Then... Pac-man eats the big dot... and what happens???

Here's a card that I made to give to my mom.  I was especially proud of the fact that I didn't have to pull out my computer to make it!  I only used the shapes that came on the Fundamentals 1 card for my eCraft. 

There's more details on my blog of which shapes I used.

Here's an I Love You card that I made.  My favorite part is actually the inside of the card.  It's very simple so there's plenty of room to write a personal message, but I really like the tiny heart for some reason!

Here's an any occasion card that I made for Operation Write Home!  It's super simple, and there's plenty of room inside for the soldiers to write home on.

Here is a card I made that folds out for plenty of writing space.  I was excited to see this style of card because I wanted to make it for Operation Write Home which needs to be A2, but I also wanted there to be plenty of space for the soldiers to write home on! 

There's links on my blog for the tutorial if you want to do it yourself!

I saw this super cute picture on the artist's website, and I just had to use it in a card!  The technique I used for coloring in the chameleons left them kind of transparent.  This was an accident, but it ended up working really great on the card!  They really look like they are blending into the background. 

For more information on how I colored the design, go to my blog.

I remembered seeing a card like this a while back somewhere, and I decided to make it.  It was super easy using my eCraft too!  I like how simple it is... while not being plain.
18  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My First Quilt (Made from my College T-shirts) on: June 12, 2012 11:10:07 AM




I've never made a quilt before... and I don't think I ever will again!  Dang... these things take too much time!  (And this wasn't even a hard quilt to make!)  I guess that I just don't have the patience required for these projects. 

One of the reasons that I don't think I will ever make another quilt (except maybe like a small quilt for a baby) is because I don't plan ahead well!  I just started cutting without trying to plan which shirts would go where or anything!

If I had actually planned ahead, I would have probably chosen to cut all of the shirts the same size, but I thought this would give it a cute patchwork look.  I regretted this decision once I started sewing the top layer together... but I think it ended up looking really nice with everything all different sizes.

Too bad I didn't do this in the winter when I could appreciate the warmth of a quilt... being 100 degrees outside doesn't really give me much opportunity to use it any time soon!

There are more pictures and specifics about the quilt on my blog. 
19  COOKING / Dessert / Pancake Burgers on: June 08, 2012 09:19:24 AM


For breakfast today I decided to surprise Ryan with veggie burgers!  But that's not very breakfasty... so I decided to make them out of pancakes!

After a little bit of food coloring, coco powder and an icing bag... tada!  Burgers!

We went ahead and used the syrup for "ketchup" and it was all just sooo tasty!

I think that this is going to be a new thing for me to try... pancake art!  There is some great inspiration on this site:  http://www.jimspancakes.com/

There are more pictures on my blog.
20  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / German Pancake on: May 21, 2012 03:05:15 PM
German Pancakes


I saw a recipe for this German Pancake in the Family Fun Magazine... it looked so good, I just HAD to try it!  Of course I don't seem to know how to follow a recipe to save my life, so I tweaked it a little bit!  They turned out really good, and it made for a great Sunday morning breakfast! 



I started off by peeling, coring and slicing two small apples.  I coated these in cinnamon and splenda ('cuz I realized that I was out of sugar).

I melted a couple tablespoons of butter by placing the butter in the glass pie pan, and putting it into the oven (which stayed at 400 degrees this whole time).  Once the butter was melted, I spread out the apple slices along the bottom. 

I baked these apple slices for about 10 mintues until the butter was bubbling and golden brown in color.  This is when I poured the pancake batter on top of the apples and baked for another 30 minutes. 

I will say that I had too many apples, or not enough batter, so a lot of the apples didn't stick to the pancake (as you can see in the top photo)... but it was still tasty!  Also, I was out of sour cream, so the batter wasn't as fluffy as I would have liked, but it was still soft on the inside with a crisp top.

The only downside, is that I feel like I could have eaten three of these... but I had to split it with Ryan since he was there when I made it!
