Whatcha Got Cookin?-.Cut File Available

Happy Saturday! For some reason it seems more like Sunday to me but I'm glad I have 2 more days to finish my DT projects instead of one. I'm kinda dragging because I seemed to have caught a cold. Blah! Hope I feel better for Monday when my BFF and I will be celebrating her B-day with lunch and shopping. I promise to post my Swarm pix tomorrow but for today I have another little simple shaped card using From My Kitchen. Now I can't keep the song "Hey Good Lookin'" out of my mind. It is designed for Custom Crops so as usual the .cut file is available for free HERE. My sample uses DonJuan but I did design the sentiment using Plantin Schoolbook as well. After the QVC gypsy broadcast there will be tons more people with DonJuan so WooHoo! It's one of my favorite fonts. Did I buy one? No, not yet. It doesn't have all of the features I need so until they update to add them I'm waiting. My craft bill this month was over the top so I just couldn't justify it when I would just put it aside for a few months. It was a super deal though,
congrats to all who took the plunge.
I kept telling myself this card was way too simple but I get requests for unintimidating designs using fewer cartridges so this is it. I really love the paper from Nana's kitchen though. Finally it became my own when I decided to hang the oversized question mark over the handle. My dear friend Margie (be sure to check out her blog HERE) was teasing me about my adhesive pearls (or the lack there of) on my Perk Up card. Well you've got to go read the article HERE to see what happened to the majority of them on this card. They are NOT always the right choice. LOL


  1. Hi - I love this - I think I am going to make a recipe book with this idea.

    I do not have DS or SCAL - would you be able to scan the item... into a pdf or jpg and send it to me? thanks!

  2. Hi Donna - wow just been catching up with your latast creations - they are all just out of this world. The things you do with that bug of your just mesmerise me!! I love the spooky chandelier, what a clever idea. Have relly enjoyed perusing your blog for the last 20 minutes!

    Big hugs,

  3. Now how cute is this? Donna, you are having so much fun with this cartridge..envy..hint..hint. You know I can't hardly wait to receive mine, hopefully before the holidays. This little pot is just too stinkin cute. Love the colors you used, wouldn't mind have that color in my kitchen. LOL


    Hugz, xx


  4. I really like this cute!

  5. Thanks Donna, for the reply. I'll do a google image on crock pots... or something like that and cut them out perhaps that way.


  6. OOh Donna you've been busy I can't keep up with all your gorgeous creations lately! Love this and your pearl story lol! I can just imagine you pinging off the pearls and them popping off and going everywhere! (yes I've been there!)
    I love the ideas you're coming up with for this cart mine is in the post so can't wait to receive it now!

  7. Thia is just WAY too cute Donna! The colors are perfect and I love the pearls.

  9. love, love it Donna, and as for your cold, go to the drug store and get Zicam, it is a little wonder and will kick it, I got the sniffles and started on it the sniffles were gone by that evening. Hugs

  10. OMGosh! How CUTE Donna! I love that Nana's Kitchen paper and of course your wonderful design! That giant question mark makes the whole thing perfect! I love it! HUGS!

  11. Donna I love your pot and that question mark hanging from the handle just helps to set it all off. I just recently purchased this cartridge and the Nana's kitchen pad of paper so that I could scrap a recipe book for my daughter this Christmas. After looking at what you and the other ladies have done with this cart I'm more excited than ever to get going.....

  12. Oh Donna this and your Perk Up card are so cute! Just received this cart right before my trip to the lake and have yet to use it but [as usual] you've provided tons of inspiration...Kris

  13. Such a charming pot! If my cooking pots were this pretty I might spend more time in the kitchen -- or not! Having the question mark wrap around the handle is pure genius!


  14. Totally adorable! The absolute perfect use for those papers!

  15. Only for you Donna would I click on "HERE" and read about your pearls, or lack of! Wise choice!

    I love this kitchen cart!!!! You rocked it and it's definately on my list for the holiday season!


  16. Hi Donna:

    I downloaded a couple of your cards from customcrops but when I tried open in the design studio I keep getting a debugging error. Any suggestions as I really like your cards.


  17. Donna, how simply beautiful! Looks great! And I really like how you layered so nicely here; i really love the details and how you integrated nicely the different cuts! :) Great job!


Thanks for making my day!
