September 6x6 Recipe Swap Group

Have you ever participated in a recipe swap group?  Basically, we each make a pre-determined quantity of identical pages, mail them off to our coordinator, and receive as many pages back.  With the release of My Digital Software from Stampin’ Up!… You’ll be surprised that my Fall themed Page is done the good ‘ole fashioned way…  featuring the Autumn Days Stamp Set.


The recipe is for Pumpkin Bread… something I used to make in great quantity every fall and winter… but these days we are all on diets, aren’t we?

Starting with the lightest color, the small maple leaf was stamped approximately 7 times around the edges of the recipe with more mustard ink.  Repeat with Pumpkin Pie, Dusty Durango, and Garden Green Ink.  The outside edge of the naturals ivory cardstock was then outlined with a gold paint pen.

You have probably heard all the hoop-la about the new Stampin’ Up My Digital Software… and probably wonder why you are viewing an old fashioned scrapbook page.  Since I ordered my software kind of late, it has not yet arrived… and although I am sure I will enjoy the wonderful simplicity of the new My Digital Software package.. I do enjoy making pages the ‘old fashioned way’ too!
