Quick Card with Love What You Do Stamp Set

Hi Friends! Today's card is one that I made, start to finish, in 15 minutes. Sometimes we need to remember that cards needn't be fancy or require lots of embellishments or techniques. When you need to make a card in a hurry, of if you just want to make a card that doesn't require a lot of products or tools, this is the one to make!

Share What You Love Recipe Album


Hi Friends! I am soooo excited to share today's project with you!!!!!! This is one my most FAVOURITE projects that I've made because it was so much fun to put together - and because it was a gift for my Mom! Both my mom and I are hooked on our "Instant Pots", which are electric pressure cookers. This gadget is a life-changer. I use mine almost every day. In fact, I now own two Instant Pots, which allows me to cook side dishes alongside the main dish (for instance, I'll have mashed potatoes in one pot and meat in the other). Just type "Instant Pot" in google search to see what all the fuss is about with this appliance. My Mom and her family have an Instant Pot and I had also given one to my Dad and his wife, so now we're all sharing recipes with each other! 

I used the "Share What You Love Suite", which was absolutely PERFECT for this album. Before I popped my mom's album in the mail, I did a quick little video walk through so that I could share this project with you:
