Christmas cookies layout using from the Kitchen.

Hello, friends!

My little one and I have a tradition of making Christmas Cookies every year together. It is our Mother/Son tradition and bonding time. I always make a layout for it as well and From My Kitchen makes this so easy! I highly recommend this cartridge for any kind of kitchen layout. I really had to cut back what I was going to cut because there was so much that applied. I still used A LOT of cuts. Because of this, I will make a list of the cuts and the sizes to make replication easier.


Winter Woodland:

Christmas - 1 3/4"
Holly - 1 3/4"

From My Kitchen:

Bowl - 2"
Eggs - 1"
rolling pin - 2 1/2"
Measuring cups - 1 3/4
gloves - 1 3/4"
spatula - 1 3/4
'measure' - 1"
'hot' - 1"
'Mix Thoroughly' - 1 1/4"
'cookies' - 2 1/2"


I used my triple crown Martha Stewart border punch for the frame around the holly and journaling box. All paper and ribbon is Close To My Heart.







The journaling box was made using a stamp set from Close To My Heart retired stamp set called 'Comments'.




This week I am giving away a Team Spirit cartridge!
