I have two little projects and a recipe to share.. oh, yes! It’s that time of year! All our butts will grow two sizes and I am here to help! No need to thank me.
But just in case you’re lookin’ forward to a more round back side…. You’re welcome.
First up I have this DARLING snowman container. This doesn’t have too much Echo Park going on, but that’s ok! That’s why I have two projects to share. For both my projects I used Echo Park Paper’s ‘This & That Christmas’. So lovely!
I mean seriously. I die. How CUTE is this? Look at this face! Looook!
To create this I used my Sizzix eclips cutting machine and the SVG Cuts kit, Christmas Open House. I absolutely love how this snowman goes together! A perfect sized treat container, too! I cut the body out with Carta Bella kraft cardstock which is GREAT for die cutting. It’s nice and thick and holds shape very well. I used some Echo Park clear stamps (Holly Jolly Christmas and Season’s Greetings from 2011) to stamp brown snowflakes all over. The idea of this was inspired by my friend Thienly (since she recently did a kraft paper snowman), and also the banana bread packaging that I am about to share..
Yup! ‘nana bread packaging.. here it is! Mmmmmmm! Smells SO good! If you wanna smell some too.. I am going to share the recipe with ya in a bit! Until then, feel free to lick your computer screen.
A big yummy loaf of greatness!
Yes, folks.. dust off that paper crimping tool! I love mine and especially love it over kraft cardstock! Made a beautiful textured bread wrap. Love the look of the brown stamped snowflakes all over.
See that ’25′ flair? That’s from my little flair shop, Paper Play Studio! You can find it in the December Daily 8pk of flair!

Sooooo.. here’s where I ask ya, “What did ya think?.. You likey?”..
I hope I’ve inspired ya.. and if not.. I hope you leave here with a craving for banana bread at least! LOL!
Not inspired and hate bananas? Well, you’re just no fun then!
I am kidding of course.. You’re still fun…. ish.
Preheat that oven, y’all and find some practically rotten bananas!
Here’s the RECIPE I use. I do make it my ‘own’ though. I use 1 tablespoon of cinnamon and 4 VERY ripe smallish/medium bananas (mash ‘em reaaaally good.) And people, for the love of muffin tops, use REAL butter! It makes all the difference in your baking. Oh.. and I do 1/2c brown sugar and a 1/2c white sugar. PERFECTO! This recipe is FABULOUS and peeps ask me all.the.time how to make it.
Now that I’ve rambled, threw some photos at ya, and made you hungry, I will send you off to the sweet and talented Linda Auclair
If you happen to stumble upon my blog, or ya lost your way.. here’s the hop list! Remember to leave comments for a chance to WIN!! PLEASE try to remember to leave a way to contact you.
