My Grandma made the BEST apple pie (I bet we can all say that!). Butter, sugar, flour, cinnamon, Granny Smith apples, a pinch of salt…She always made her own crust with Crisco! God that was good stuff! This was my attempt at making it a few years ago.
I even used her pie plate.
AND I made my own crust using her recipe of course!
It was beautiful!
It tasted great, but I should have cooked the apples a little before I put them in the shell…I don’t like “crunchy”. I’m weird like that. Try, try again right? Holidays are coming, so I’ll get some practice soon! I saw this awesome video on Facebook and I want to try some of these pie crusts!
This kit would be right up her alley!
Each month a card is chosen from the deck by number/suit. Any of the five decks can be used. Make a layout, card, or whatever is on that card in the deck you choose and post it in the Club Scrap® Idea Deck Challenge thread. The results must be created from at least 50% Club Scrap® materials.
This month the card is the 8♠. Detailed cutting instructions are included on the back of each card so there is no wasted paper!
Don’t be intimidated by the little pieces, that’s what the Club Scrap® grid ruler is for! (Check out this post, I was Made for Sunny Days! , for some tips on using the grid ruler to align tiny pieces.) I rearranged things a bit on a couple of the cards, but I used all the pieces. Don’t you love this card stock?!
The directions call for two 12*12 pieces of card stock, so I used card stock and elements from the Deluxe kit to decorate. On my first card I used the Jumbo unmounted stamp set and ribbon from the embellishment pack. I edged the card stock with a gold leafing pen to tie everything together.
This colorful card also features stamp images from the Jumbo Unmounted set as well as a sentiment from the Greetings Unmounted stamps.
All this gold and red is making me think Christmas cards! I may have to save a few sheets for my holiday card making. Hmmmm, some homemade apple pies and cards sounds like a gift giving plan!
