If you've been reading this blog for a little while, you'll know that I'm the genius who first came up with the idea that you can mix and match things from different kits. Or maybe it didn't go exactly like that...
Anyway, I'm smart enough to do it now, so I thought I'd share with you a few of my favorite kits I use ALL THE TIME.
▲ You can never have too many buttons!
▲ I swoon for pockets.
▲ Little strings always seem to be the finishing touch.
▲ I absolutely cannot make a layout without paint splatters.
▲ Neutral papers always have their place.
▲ Backgrounds usually need some fun stamps.
▲ A little something from here.
▲ And a little wood veneer. Very trendy.
▲ Also, you'll need these sheep.
What's your favorite go-to kit?
When I saw these cookies on Pinterest, I knew that I had to make them. The only addition I made to the situation was to add a dinosaur. Because, you know, they make everything better.
This was a new sugar cookie recipe to me, and I'm sure I'll be using it again. The cookies kept their shape well after baking, which is an important consideration when your dinosaur has so many spikes.
The frosting recipe was also slightly new to me. I hadn't used meringue powder, and appreciated how it made the frosting a bit stiffer (those spikes you know...)
These cookies have definitely brightened my day and my afternoon tea time. Are you up to anything special in the kitchen, for Valentine's Day, or just because?
Pixel Scrapper Blog
Hi There! I’m Marisa Lerin and you’ll see me around at Pixel Scrapper a lot. I started this site in 2010 soon after I discovered a new love in digital scrapbooking. Pixel Scrapper has gone through some significant changes since that time and it’s grown into this lovely community site you are seeing now. I am daily surprised by the turn of life’s events that has led me down this path. If you're new to the site, welcome! Here are a few tidbits about me that I hope will help you get to know me better!
I’m originally from Minnesota, USA, but spent a good chunk of my childhood living abroad (in Bolivia and Hong Kong). I returned to Minnesota to attend university, got married and then moved overseas again (Korea, then Jordan and 1 year of traveling). My designs are heavily influenced by these many nomadic years. I am currently back in the USA, now living in the great state of Oregon!
I have no official training for what I’m doing, since I decided very wisely (haha) to study physics in university. I am always learning new things about digital scrapbooking, and this community has been immensely helpful for that!
If I manage to stop digital scrapbooking you will probably find me watching TV, reading or baking. I also enjoy writing for the blog here at Pixel Scrapper where I talk about whatever happens to be catching my fancy at the moment.
