Meal Planning

Here are some FREE meal planning tools I have made for you to make life easier in the kitchen! Each weekly meal plan is 7 days and has recipes for 7 dinners.  (and maybe some bonus desserts!) Also, I planned the meals so the ingredients that you are shopping for can be used for 2 or more of the recipes! These recipes are taken straight from the Pampered Chef Recipe collection and are tested for goodness. šŸ™‚

I also took the liberty of making a SHOPPING LIST for you….WHAT?! I mean, I hear ya, one of the worst things about cooking is that you have to SHOP for what you need amiright?! Just pull up the shopping list when you are ready to shop. Then pull up the Meal Plan Menu and follow the link to the Pampered Chef Recipe* to cook!

I hope you enjoy this help with Menu Planning! Happy Cooking! xoxo

CTMH Boo Crew, Pumpkin Spice & Slimline Celebration

Hello stamping and scrapbooking friends! I’m so excited about some super cute new products by Close to My heart! Now that the holidays and cooler weather are nearing, I was thrilled to see CTMH come out with their new collection called Pumpkin Spice and the Halloween line called Boo Crew. They also have a new Slimline Celebration collection to celebrate National Stamping Month (NSM) in October. I’ll share each of the collections, some links and photos! Be sure to pop on back to my site to see some adorable projects and cards using these products.

First up is Boo Crew. So cute for scrapbook pages, mini albums, or treat bags! Speaking of treat bags, I am working on some cute smarties candy treat holders that are adorable…video coming soon! You can also join in on the workshop once you purchase your kit. Just go to the event page on CTMH’s Facebook page HERE. This event will be on October 12th.

Of course we have cardstock to match in Nectarine, Ballerina, Black, and Wild Berry. This cardstock is perfect for greetings cards and scrapbook pages. Remember, it has a lighter side, and a dark side!

Next up is Pumpkin Spice! I don’t know about you, but we had a long summer here in Colorado, so I’m ready for boots, sweaters, firepits, hot chocolate, and pumpkin spice everything! šŸ˜‰ You can join in to watch the Facebook live event using either the Cardmaking or the Scrapbooking kit, or both! The cardmaking one is on October 19th, and the scrapbooking one is on October 26th. These are free, live events, and there are usually giveaways!

The matching stamps and thin cuts are also adorable!

Lastly, there is the whole Slimline collection! I’m in love with all of these and I just ordered the Fishy Greetings and the Circle Cluster Thin Cuts. As soon as I get my products I’ll create and post some creations with them!
