Friday Mashup #109 {A Matching Set!}

Last night I tried a new recipe that I found on Pinterest (if you haven't already, join Pinterest! They have some awesome ideas on crafting of all kinds, household tips, fashion, and food!). This one is called Meatloaf Muffins. Click here to see the recipe. They were absolutely delicious! I used moose hamburger instead of beef and combined the meat with some veggies, spices, bbq sauce and salsa and used an ice cream scoop to scoop them into the muffin pan. I will definitely be doing this again! It's a great alternative to chicken and pork and goes well with mashed potatoes and veggies!

I also spent some time crafting last night. It feels like it's been a while since I spent that much time in my craft area lately! It was kind of nice to get back into it again, although I struggled a bit with design/creativity last night so my project took a little longer than I wanted it to. But in any case, I decided to play along with the Friday Mashup challenge. It's a good one this week!

  1. Create a project using "the sketch".
  2. Create a "set of cards".
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "set of cards using the sketch".
The designer this week created a tutorial to make a matching DSP card set.(what a great idea!). I picked Summer Smooches designer paper and after following her tutorial, here is what I came up with:

I love the bright colours of this DSP! It really speaks for itself, so I kept the cards pretty clean and simple. I used some of the sentiments from the stamp set "Word Play" as the central image in each card, and then embellished the cards with ribbon, rhinestones, etc. Here are some close-ups of the cards:

    P.S. The moose Meatloaf Muffins would be perfect for my neck of the woods. I think I'll tell my daughter to make those for her boyfriend, he has a ton of moose meat in his freezer!

  3. Mmm, those meatloaf muffins sound delicious! Absolutely gorgeous set of cards - I love how each of them has a little some "special" about it. The rhinestones inside the little banners is darling. Thanks for sharing with us at The Friday Mashup!
