Fancy This: Baked With Love

AllisonLandyFramed
Ahhh, November. For those of us in the U.S. Thanksgiving is at the forefront of everyone’s mind. For me, that means – FOOD, and lots of it! Our family is small (lucky for me), and frankly, I am the only one who knows how to cook. So, you guessed it. When it comes to cooking the traditional meal, it all falls on my shoulders. Each year, I try a new recipe for the feast. But the one dish that never changes, is the pie – pumpkin, of course! My pumpkin pie has been a huge hit since 1993 when I started making it. So, don’t you think it’s about time I created a layout about it? Yup, me too.

I often like using shapes or objects in place of words and wanted a homey feel with the heart in my title. To create the patchwork design of my heart, I first created a template shape out of some scrap chipboard.

Step 1

Next I took my square punch and punched out about 10 squares.

Step 2

I used 3 coordinating, double sided papers to give myself some choices.

Step 3

I then placed my squares on a scrap piece of cardstock just to give it a base. Rather than line the squares up exactly I staggered them just a bit. Be sure to cover the backside of each square fully with adhesive.

Step 4

Then I flipped my scrap over, traced my heart template, and cut it out using a pair of non-stick scissors.

Step 5

As a final step, I stitched along each of the sections on my sewing machine, and adhered a button.

Do you have a favorite Thanksgiving dish? Why not scrap it today?
