Love Target's Dollar Spot!

I am planning on hosting a cookie exchange in December. I was shopping at Target the other day and ran across these cute little books in the dollar spot. I thought they would make a great gift to give to my guests for the cookie exchange. I plan on having everyone send me their recipe ahead of time so that I can print them out and put them in the books. I think they turned out really cute. The green one is my favorite although it does not look very good in the photo. The stamps I used were Baroque Motifs and The Snowflake Spot, both from SU. For the center, I used stamps from Stampendous. I wrote the words "Cookie Exchange" on the books in pencil, and then went over them with liquid applique. I did not heat the applique because I liked the look as is.

I also made another quick fall card. This was stamped with Autumn Fest from SU. The card is made with chocolate chip card stock, with an ivory backround. The background for the leaf is a piece of olive green wool felt. I used clear embossing on the main leaf image, added some faux stitching on the felt and also added a couple of small buttons.

Thanks for looking!

Hi Sandra, thanks so much for the nice comment about my blog. I love the name of your's 'Cozy Chair'. Makes me want to come sit for a little while. I adore your cookie books. Mind if I CASE that idea? I am a huge Target fan as well. Have a great night!
