Creative Cuts & More Mega Recipe Blog Hop

Welcome to the first day of the Creative Cuts & More Mega Recipe Blog Hop, which will feature the 8"x8" Treasured Family Recipes Kit. If you didn't arrive here from the amazing Sharon Harnist's blog, please hop on to the Diecutdiva blog, as you would want to start from the beginning and here is why.

We have 24 designers who have created wonderful pages to inspire you. Plus we all are sharing some of our delicious treasured family recipes. Make sure you check at the Diecutdiva Blog tomorrow for the Holiday Treats Apron Recipe Kit Blog Hop. There will also be 24 designers who are going to showcase their great creations and sharing holiday recipes. I don't know about you, but I love great recipes, so it's worth coming just for that, and not to mention you get to see what you can create with these gorgeous kits.

First of all I would like to make a disclaimer. Yes, I did receive this yummy kit for free to create with, but I wouldn't have accepted it, if I didn't enjoy working with Creative Cuts & More products, so what you see from here is my honest opinion and the pictures will speak for themselves anyway.

I only made the cover pages an two pages of it, but I plan on finishing it, as I have been wanting to put a recipe book and the Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird line is just perfect for this, which is what Creative Cuts & More created this yummy kit with! So, without further ado, here is what I came up with so far. Here is my cover page.

One of my two pages with a very yummy and very much loved by my family recipe, Snickerdoodles. Please click on the picture to see it large and you should be able to read the recipe. I make these cookies for the holidays, and some other time, too, especially, when my son is begging for them..hehehe.

My 2nd page has our favorite salmon dish, which has always received raving review from our friends and family. Again, please click on the picture to be able to read the recipe.

Items I used to make these pages:

8"x8" Treasured Family Recipes Kit by Creative Cuts & More
Stamps: Unity Stamps
Ink: Ranger Distress inks
Spellbinders
Ribbon from Fabric Barn
Buttons fro m my stash

So, what comes in the kit? Here is a picture of it, so you can see.

I really love this chipboard book, it's really thick, but perhaps you can see it better on this picture.

As part of the celebration CC&M will be having a great sale. For the next six days they are offering 20% off the entire store. But act quickly as the sale will end on Nov.14th. Make sure you enter this code: recipebloghop2009 during checkout.

As continuing part of the celebration CC&M is giving away great gifts. Each day they will give one kit away. Here is the twist - go through the blog hop, leave wonderful comments for the designers. After you have finished the hop, return to Diecutdiva and instead of leaving a comment, you need to share a recipe to have a chance at winning the kit. Share the recipe on your blog and link it back and get another chance to win the kit. Help us also make this a great recipe fun. Isn't that cool????

And now, please hop on to Noelle Reese's blog to see what gorgeous creations she has to share with you..

Well, that is all the details. Enjoy the rest of the hop!
Hugs,
Eva
