CC&M Mega Recipe Blog Hop Day 1

Welcome to the first day of the Creative Cuts & More Mega Recipe Blog Hop! We are featuring the 8”x8” Treasured Family Recipes Kit. We have 24 designers who will be creating wonderful pages to inspire you plus we all will be sharing some of our own delicious treasured family recipes.



Make sure you check back at www.diecutdiva.com tomorrow for the Holiday Treats Apron Recipe Kit Blog Hop. We will also have 24 designers who will be showcasing their great creations and sharing holiday treat recipes.

Hopefully you have come here from Chris Penaflor's blog. If not, please start at the beginning by going to the Die Cut Diva blog. You don't want to miss any of the wonderful projects we are sharing today.

As part of the celebration CC&M will be having a great sale. For the next six days, we will offer 20% off the entire store. But act quickly, it is only for six days – this sale will end on Nov 14th. Make sure you enter this code recipebloghop2009 during checkout.

As a continuing part of the celebration CC&M will of course give away great gifts. Each day we will give away one kit. Here is the twist – go through the blog hop and leave wonderful comments for the great designers. After you have finished the blog hop, return to www.diecutdiva.com and instead of leaving a comment, you need to share a recipe to have a chance at winning the kit. Share the recipe on your blog and link it back and get another chance to win the kit. Help us make this a great recipe swap. :-)

Here are a few pages from my Family Recipes album using the Treasured Family Recipes Kit. The first picture is my cover page. Everything except the ribbons and the buttons is from the kit. I love the black chipboard letters with the cream-colored shadows underneath.




This is the third page of my recipe book. Everything on this page comes directly from the kit. This is my mom's recipe for Hot Fudge Pudding Cake. We just couldn't wait for this to cool down before we started digging into it. Trust me, this cake is heavenly!!!

This is the fourth page of my recipe book. Everything except the ribbon and buttons is from the kit. This is the most used recipe in our family besides chocolate chip cookies. I thought the little chipboard containers of sugar and spice were so appropriate for this recipe page because Mom always had us kids rolling the dough balls around in the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Mmmmmm............

Come on back here tomorrow to see what I created from the new Apron Recipe kit. I will post a Belli Challenge project that uses a die cut from CC&M on Wednesday, and we are doing another CC&M blog hop on Thursday. Feel free to save the blinkie (down below) to your blog and get your friends to join the hop.



I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my family recipes. I'd love for you to bake these recipes and share them with your family. Now it's time for you to hop over to AJ Otto's blog for some more yummy recipes. :-)

Edited to add: Congratulations to Nicky Hsu for winning the blog candy from CC&M!!!! Whoo hoo!!! Please email me with your address and I will get that to Terry at Creative Cuts and More so she can mail out your blog candy to you.
