Fruit Ensemble

These projects shoot me straight into Spring and Summer. Ohhhh how I wish it was warm and sunny here! I made this fruit ensemble for the Spellbinder's CHA booth. The entire collection uses Crate Paper, SU! Certainly Celery cardstock, Copic markers and airbrush system and Spellbinder's oval, circle and square Nestabilities and Lockhart rubber stamps.

I absolutely LOVE polka dots and have seen them everywhere this season. So I'm diggin' that little polka dot paper. I also love the white colandar against the bright, red cherries.
Here's a peachy little card. Mmmm, I can just taste a big, fat, juicy peach right now, can't you?
Yellow is also everywhere this season and I LOVE it! I thought these strawberries looked really cute against this striped paper with the yellow accents.
Here's a little recipe book made with 3 x 5 recipe cards and my Bind It All machine. Chipboard letters have been inked up. And check out the new longer ovals from Spellbinder's. These will be awesome with sentiments, titles, etc.
Here's a 4 x 6 recipe card that will fit great in the girls' Recipe Box. The stamps are from Stampin' Up!. I think recipe cards like this would be so fun to give out to those friends and neighbors that request recipes. Sooooo, are you cookin' up anything special this weekend? We're on a healthy eating kick so our menu is pretty strict right now. But I'm craving a dessert so I think I'll whip up my lowfat strawberry pie today. Have a GREAT Saturday! I'm heading out to Josey's basketball game and then to my friends house to scrapbook. I'm all packed and ready to go!! Only two small bags, I'm keeping a *minimalist* approach today.

I love your creations! I posted a comment earlier asking where you got the dp, then I read it was SU's new paper (deleted it)! Didn't read all the way because I was so captivated by your designs! Lovely!

I love all of your work. I do not stamp but you inspire me in other ways with your great ideas! I love your recipe book. What do you use for the inside? I think it would be a great teacher gift and a great excuse to use my Bind it All! Love all of the color combos, as well! Enjoy the weekend!
