MyGrafico recipe card images - with a twist

This is my second post for the day so be sure to scroll down for the Sherrod Studio sneak peek!!

Normally on Wednesdays, the B team from MyGrafico Challenges works with a sketch but this week we departed a little from the routine. We are working with a recipe digi set and we had free reign to create whatever we were inspired to with it.

Here's the set:




















And here is what I came up with:





















Let me tell you a bit about my project. I started with 2 of the recipe card images from the set - one that is the circle that says "from my heart - from my kitchen" and the other says "arts and crafts". Now I did a little manipulating in Photoshop but I got both images combined into one and I changed the word kitchen into the word heart so it worked with my idea.

I then used a 7" plain pizza box and altered it by covering the top and sides with patterned paper. I trimmed the edges on the top with punched border pieces and inked the edges that were not covered by paper. My image was then colored and mounted to a scalloped mat and added to the box along with a piece of pink ribbon to tie in with the heart image. I also added a couple of buttons to the corners of the box to tie in with the buttons on the image.

So here's what I am doing with the box - every year at Christmas time, my family donates an item to a children's home (for disabled children) and it is always scrapbooking things (as I need to "clean out" every once in awhile!) So this year, I packaged up some goodies in this cute box! It is full of 6x6 papers, bunches of stickers, ribbon and fibers and even a small acrylic stamp set. We'll drop it off at the center and it will become either a gift for one resident there or it will be used by the center for craft projects for all the residents. I know they will love it and the box just makes it a little more special.

So how about playing along with us over at MyGrafico Challenges? See what the rest of the team has created with this set and then show us your best take using a recipe based image.

Be sure to check out my earlier post from today below. I am off to get my son ready for school (only 3 more exams to go before break - yeah!) and then clean the house for my Tastefully Simple party tonight. Hopefully the weather won't get too bad - right now they are calling for rain/snow/wind.....just my luck! Have a good day!
