Fall, Handmade Cards, Retired Gems, Thanks

This Post Has Nothing To Do With Making Cards

BUT it does have everything to do with why I would make a card -LOVED ones… our friends and family AND making applesauce.

IMG_0012

Here’s the crew (myself obviously) above are my parents otherwise known as Papa and Nana. Can you believe they drove an hour and a half just to make applesauce all day. Below is Luna, I would say that she was clean up crew but she didn’t want the apples until they were cooked.

IMG_0013

The BEFORE photo, we started with 4 pecks of Cortland seconds- they look pretty perfect to me.

IMG_0010

Papa really makes short work of these apples with the peeler.

IMG_0014

This is how they look after peeled, spiral cut and Nana does the fine work to get the last little bits off that the peeler can’t get due to the irregularities of the apples.

IMG_0017

Don’t worry all those peels and cores don’t go to waste, they go into the juicer. After straining with some muslin I pour off the top for cider.

IMG_0016

The “meat” of the apples go into a pot with a bit of water  and cooked until soft. IMG_0020

I will skip to the final product and spare everyone the mutilation of apples by the blender. After canning we were going to let them cool in the garage but late fall came early this year and it was just too cold and windy. So too the laundry room they went.IMG_0021.jpg

Comment below with your guess of how many gallons of applesauce and apple cider was made. One small hint… there are mostly quart size jars were used.

Now don’t think that there isn’t a card in this blog at all! One of my all time favorite thank you cards will be going out to my incredible parents who give so much and ask so little in return.

Check out the original blog post for this thank you card HERE.

Did you miss Part 1? Find it HERE. Find Part 2 HERE. Find Part 3 HERE. Find Part 4 HERE.

So here is Part 5 of the great cards I made from Outdoor Barbecue. So this one had to wait to be posted because they are FATHER’s Day Cards. By the time you read this I will have finally seen ALL of the dads in my life. Hubby check, Father in law check, my actual dad… CHECK. Whew, that was a LONG celebration.

Notice there were 3 shout outs? OPPS! I forgot to take a photo of my Father-in-law’s card and I am pretty sure he doesn’t subscribe to my blog?! I know you are all thinking “How could that be possible?” Now for the even worse news, this stamp is RETIRED! Regardless since masculine cards can be difficult to design I am sharing these anyway.

hanks for being patient while I get caught up. We will talk about my favorites from the new annual catalog in the next post.4330EDEE-2170-49BB-A8BB-75B02401486A_1_101_o3490FB3C-BBF3-4C3F-AE84-A79B7D7B2BE7_1_101_o

Great Cards I Forgot to Post… Part 4

Did you miss Part 1? Find it HERE. Find Part 2 HERE. Find Part 3 HERE

So here is Part 4 of the great cards I made from the Tropical Oasis Suite. As you know the Spring Mini Catalog has retired. Which I find incredibly sad because I loved so many of the suites. However, I am also seriously excited to show you all that the new 2020 Annual catalog has to offer.

Before we can get on to those cards I have to show you one last set of cards that well were just hard for me to find time to publish. My last excuse is the baking! Did you find yourself cooking, baking and in general spending more time in the kitchen. Can you say “STUFFING MY FACE LIKE A PIG!” Ok maybe I am alone on that one.

Back to the card story. These cards were a part of a porch pick up card class. I was testing out if I could prepare classes for an at home experience- ain’t nothing gonna keep a crafter from crafting. Good new is, it worked! Recreate versions of these cards as the stamp and dies are still available.
