Creating with Flour


I've been baking again.  Today I tried making Bagels.  If you were on Facebook I was updating my progress.  And if you've been around awhile you know I love to cook as much as I love to craft.  Well, Santa brought me a new Kitchen Aid Mixer, Professional 600!  This baby is built to make bread and lots of it.  It will take me awhile to learn to make bread so here's my first kick at making Bagels I found on Pinterest.

I picked this recipe as I'm too impatient to wait overnight to make my bread.  This recipe is very easy to make in your stand up mixer. This recipe calls for 6c-7c of flour and my "old" KA Mixer would not have like that much but my new one does.  This recipe yields in my case 16 med/large bagels.  I divided the dough in half after a 2 hour rise and made 8 bagels out of each half. 

Here are 6 of the sesame bagels I baked after giving them a boiling bath in water.  Ugh should have taken a photo of that for you...

I made a selection of  bagels, 6 sesame, 6 cheese and 4 cinnamon sugar.  I thought my kids would like that with my Apple Butter.  And they did!  There's only 1 of those left.


My youngest took a bite out of his warm cinnamon sugar bagel.

If you would like to try this recipe... I followed it from Self- Reliance by Jamie.  I like easy recipes to follow that have great results.  She has a lot of great photo's to follow and great instruction.  Be sure to click HERE to make these divine bagels.

  4. Yum! I love making all kinds of bread, but I have not tried bagels before--and I love CHEESE bagels!! So you can send those ones this way if your kids don't like them! :)

    I might have to try this recipe!

Jarred Florals

How's your summer so far?  Me... I am just returning from a long vacation from down south.  So I am probably folding a lot of laundry. TheXyronTeam andACCOare playing all week with staplers and cutters.  Which means anything goes creatively!  I am so thrilled to use their Guillotine Trimmer LiteI don't own one so this is super exciting... 10 papers at one time!  
(all supplies used is linked for your convenience)

Time to crack into my new Flower Jar stamps and Framelits dies and a whole lot of colouring.
Once the colouring was done I added a little touch of dimension to these teeny wildflowers with a stylus and water.  It's my first cut with the Guillotine Trimmer Lite, dang thats sharp.  Even for small cuts.
I ran the stitched circle cut through the Creative Station then used the Create a Sticker for the adorable teeny wildflowers.
The Pondering Words "WONDERFUL" cut is perfectly cut with the Guillotine Trimmer for this 3/4" cut.  I popped it on the edges …

Fall Colours

OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog!  I really couldn't help myself.  I mean... you know me! This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS!  Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps.  Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal!  So many creative ways to make stuff.

I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.  

I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.  These are great for watercoloring too.  Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.

I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks.  Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting.  Oi...

More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Sta…

Wanderlust

I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug!  I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover.  The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste.  I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.


Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page.  I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements.  Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!  
See, all those little bits popped right out!  More inking and layering for these pages.  Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's!  I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …
