Customer Creations

Hello, today I wanted to share one of my Customer's My Paper Pumpkin Creations!  These were done by Dolores. She is such an amazing lady. She is always so kind and thoughtful. I am blessed to have her in my stamping group. I know that she enjoys getting her Paper Pumpkin kits each month. Did I mention how creative she is as well?

This is her twist on her Paper Pumpkin kit!

She added color to the wooden words and even stamped the inside of her cards. Thanks for sharing Dolores! We would love to see what you have made. Be sure to link up over at the My Pumpkin Challenge. I hope you have a great day.

A Touch of Gold

I bet we all have special moments that we celebrate. Whether it's a birthday, new baby, graduation or a retirement, don't forget to say thank you. The My Paper Pumpkin kits make it easy to have handmade cards and gifts on hand for whenever you may need one! Over at the My Pumpkin Challenge the Design Team shares weekly inspiration for your kits. Here is the thank you card I made this week.

I usually try to only use the items that come in the kit or past kits, but this week I busted out my Big Shot. I used the Starburst Framelits die on the corner of the card to cut the shape and adhered the gold envelope liner to the card. I was not much a gold (as in color) fan, until we got this kit. Now, I cannot get enough of it! I stamped the chevron pattern on the wooden thank you piece and glued it on the gold paper. I left this card simple since the gold starburst is the main attraction.

I hope you will head to the My Pumpkin Challenge for more inspiration. Please check back tomorrow because I will share one of my Customer's Creations from her Paper Pumpkin kit! Thanks for stopping by!

It is time for another edition of Dessert Club! (read all about it here) We meet every month, but some months I forget to take pictures because we are in deep conversation or busy eating preparing dessert. I love the ladies in our Dessert Club, we are all moms of kids ranging in age from 10 months to 16 years old. We have great chats and lots of laughs. Did I mention wine, we have lots of wine too!

This month we made Ina Garten's Cinnamon Baked Doughnuts. I think making doughnuts has been on our wish list for a year!

We used two sizes of doughnut pans found here and here.  We wanted the standard size and of course cute mini doughnuts. They were easy to make, we just stuck to the recipe. We made a chocolate glaze and a traditional glaze. We also had nuts, coconut, and sprinkles for toppings. For the mini doughnuts, some were covered in powered sugar and some we dipped in butter (yes!) and rolled them in a cinnamon sugar mixture.

You can see our finished product! They were fun to make and to decorate. In my opinion they were good, but not the best. They seemed pretty dense. If we ever attempt doughnuts again I think we will roll out dough and cut them out so we can have doughnut holes, and then fry them up! Have you ever made homemade doughnuts? Maybe you prefer stopping by Dunkin Donuts for your fix. We recently got a Voodoo Doughnut in Denver. It is so popular the line is ALWAYS out the door and down the block. I am waiting patiently for the line to shorten! I cant wait to try them.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend.
