Get some "Lovin' from the Oven"

I am over the moon with excitement about the upcoming Who's That Girl stamp from My Favorite Things. She's called Lovin' From the Oven, and seriously I love it because it combines two things that I just love, cooking and stamping too!!

The VIP Collection is a one day offering that allows you to get your hands on the upcoming Who's That Girl stamp set along with a fantastic bundle of products at a fantastic price! (Personally, I can't wait to get my hands on that ribbon bundle and buttons too!) After today, you won't be able to pick up this fabulous stamp set till its official release on February 3rd!

Now that I've shared the details on the bundle... who's ready to see my project?

Last year, I discovered that I really, really enjoy cooking. Who knew? Certainly not me. But, over the course of the last year, I've committed to looking at cooking as an enjoyable activity, rather than a "chore" to be done.

I'm often working from recipes that I've discovered online, which means having my laptop right next to the stove. And lets face it, I'm clumsy, so that's not really a great idea. I'm always worried that I'll spill something. So, I decided, to combine my new found love of cooking, with my longtime love of stamping, and swap out my current (not cute) recipe box with something I'll love using!

I popped right over to my LSS to pick up the Bare Elements Recipe Box. Its an oversized box, and its perfect! (It comes with dividers inside, which I'm working on, but with two sickies in the house, I didn't get as far as I'd hoped this week.)

The oustide of the box is covered with a few sheets of 12x12 paper from the Basic Grey Nook and Pantry collection as well as a sheet of Bo Bunny Double Dot paper. I've used MFT's Snow Cone and Hot Fudge cardstocks, and my beloved Kraft cardstock too.

The box has less layers and "stuff" than I usually add to a project, but as this is going to be countertop in my kitchen, I didn't want layers that would collect dust, or possibly fall off get ragged etc. As soon as my order from MFT arrives, I will however be adding a little button cluster from the Bakery Blend!

All the paper piecing was done with the Nook and Pantry 6x6 pad. I love piecing with these smaller sized patterns, just the right scale! I sponged each piece of her dress to give some added dimension then glued each layer in place. Once the little piece was finished, I gave it a nice coat of Multi Medium to protect it.

I used my Maya Road chipboard letters to spell out the word "recipes" for the front of the box. I hope you'll forgive me if it seems lazy, but I love the look of naked chipboard against the dark chocolate polka dot.

So, I gave them a nice protective coat of Multi Medium from Claudine Helmuth's line and then adhered them in place. This will protect them from grease stains and splatter from being kitchen top and all.

After I'd added the Multi Medium to the letters, I decided that coating the entire box was a good idea, to protect from dust, splatters and just life in general.

Once everyone is healthy, and I've unburried myself from the mountain of laundry, I'll get back to work on the insides of the recipe box, and show you a recipe card I've been working on. I'm so excited about this project, too bad LIFE got in the way of my stamping plans! LOL!
