Hi there, Julie here, how’s things in your corner of the world today? So far we’ve had a flurry of snow and now the sun’s splitting the clouds … beautiful and confusing at the same time. But so are a lot of things in life!
It’s my turn to bring you something a little Gauche-shaped today so, how about sharing a slice of home-made pie with me:
Last year my parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary and rather than having an elaborately iced cake to cut into at their party … they had a home-made corned-beef pie with a pastry ’40’ on top!
A scrappable moment if ever there was one!!
Remember the video tutorial I made on how to use full sized magazine pages on a 12×12 layout? Well, I used the techniques I descibed in there, to layer onto my backing an appropriate vintage magazine page which features a cake factory!
My finishing touches are shown here, where I’ve used several of the Cosmo Cricket ‘Cogsmo’ die-cuts from the ‘Geekery’ kit. Despite the ‘robotic’ theme of the ‘Cogsmo’ range I loved how its soft pastel colours blended in with my photograph and those vintage postage stamps. I don’t know what’s gotten into me, but this year I’ve turned a bit unusually soft with my colour choices! And I arranged a group of the peach, blue and pale green discs and circles and hand-stitched them to the bottom of my page.
If all this talk of cakes and pies has whetted your appetite, then don’t forget to check out the brand new ‘Kitsch Delish’ kit, which is positively bursting at the waistband with baking-themed delights.
OK then, I’ll be off, I’ve got a sugar-waffle calling my name from the kitchen and it’d be rude to keep ignoring it ….
