Apple Butter Recipe


A Recipe and Craft Project!

I have 2 passions, cooking and crafting.  Sometimes they even come together!  If you're on FACEBOOK with me then you know what I've been up to for the past couple of days.  Where did this come from?  My new obsession, Pinterest!  If you've been wanting to make Apple butter then break out your crock pot!

(My new Pinterest Button for my Blog)

I tripled the recipe since I hade a Costco bag of Fuji's.  This yeilded 7 cups (or 7 jars) of Apple Butter.
I have a big family so 3 jars wasn't going to cut it.

I decided to can my Apple Butter so I could store it.  Submerge your jars and boil for 15 min.  Cool them on a rack and wait for the "POP"  That's my favorite part!

My batch yielded 7 250ml jars.  I gave 3 jars to my friends and neighbors. 

I was so excited to use my Preserves cartridge.  The recipe cards are cut at 5", the font is 1" and the apple cuts are 2" with layers.  Then add your recipe.

I used the Lid Feature too and cut at 2".  And added a little button up there.  They turned out so cute!

Apple Butter Recipe

click HERE to see where I got the recipe.
(This was grabbed from http://www.skinnytaste.com/)

  • 2.5 lbs (6 large) apples, peeled, cored, finely chopped (I used honeycrisp and gala)
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp allspice
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
Place the apples in a slow cooker. Top with sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg and mix well.

Cover and cook on low 10 hours, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is thickened and dark brown.
Uncover and puree with an immersion blender. Cook on high uncovered 1-2 hours
Spoon into sterile jars, or containers and refrigerate.
This is a really easy recipe I promise!  I have never had Apple Butter and I was so excited I made Sourdough Bread (and english muffins).  I used my sourdough starter and used the recipe from my William and Sonoma Cook Book. Click HERE to see the recipe.  This was my first time making bread without a bread machine!  I was stressed but the bread is WAY better!  It turned out more like an Artisan bread.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Thank You Xyron

Well what a fun year it has been.  Xyron took me on with no experience and never even owning one.  Thank you to my awesome team and a awesome product to design with.  
The team is designing with their favourite Xyron product and I picked the Sticker Maker.  This handy little machine is perfect for my love of sentiments and letters.  A perfect pairing with my Sizzix Dies.

To create the backgrounds I need a thick cardstock that can take this amount of paint... Super Stock!  I created a colourful base for these wee Alphanumeric Thin letters.  

I lined the little letters up and ran them through my Vagabond.

Each little letters slides into the sticker maker easily.  I add them all one after another pull.  So quick and easy!  

I created the background for the card much the same way as the letters.  Creating a paper ribbon while I was at it.

With the ribbon and bow created I popped the ribbon part through the sticker maker.

Peel and stick.  It's hard to pick one Xyron product.  I often …

Last Minute Christmas Card

We are always looking for last minute card ideas.  Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time.  A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker.  How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.  


With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments.  Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.

Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.  I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes.  I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.

Check out this simple quick card.

Look how pretty my stamp looks here.



Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful holiday.
