MDS: Whoopie Pie Festival

For those readers that are not from Central Pennsylvania… A traditional whoopie pie is essentially a thick layer of icing sandwiched between two layers of chocolate cake. (YUM)

In mid-September, we attended the Whoopie Pie Festival in Lancaster – a day long event full of games, toys, crafts, and hundreds of flavors of whoopie pies. I decided to start scrapbooking digitally because I know myself – and it will not get done if I don’t.

This page was created using the 30-DAY FREE TRIAL version of MDS and only took me about an hour – mostly because I had no idea where anything was or what to do! You can download your trial now, and start designing today. Refer to the My Digital resources on my blog for technique training, new downloads, and the full catalog.

Once you’ve finished designing your project, you can order it to be professionally printed through Stampin’ Up!’s competitively-priced print services.

 

SUPPLIES USED

Background: Day in the Life-7 Designer Series Paper

Embellishments: Staple & Stitching / Chocolate – line 3

Stamps & Ink Color: Ink Splatter 4 (White), Delight in the Day-Create the Moment (Gumball Green), Delight in the Day-Delight in Today (Midnight Muse), Delight in the Day-Times Spent with You (Pumpkin Pie)

All Wrapped Up

Friday is finally here, and I’m excited to share this great gift idea with you. It’s a culmination of this week’s posts and so versatile. Need a housewarming gift? A bridal shower gift? A birthday or holiday gift for the “kitchen diva” of your family? Then here’s your quick and easy answer:

So you want to know how I did it? Glad you asked!

Print the recipe cards from Wednesday’s post (Recipes and Free Printable) and cut.

To make the clothespin, simply purchase a large clothespin from a local craft store. I bought this one at Michael’s for $1.50 and was lucky that it was already sanded and painted. (You can also find an unfinished clothespin and sand and paint yourself.) Cut your paper slightly larger than your clothespin. Put sticky strip close to all the edges of the clothespin and adhere the paper to it. Use an x-acto knife to trim the edges, including the portion that covers the silver hinge (unless, of course, you don’t want to ;)). Repeat for the other side of the clothespin.

And a handy tutorial for the recipe card holder (pictured on the left):

TUTORIAL

(pre-pictures) I used the Recipe Card Holder Template and added MDS Domestic Goddess paper behind it. You could also print this out on any Designer Series paper you like.

To match the free printable from Wednesday: Domestic Goddess Recipe Card Holder Template

Now, back to instructions: Cut out the template; score and fold along the gray solid lines. Then, continue here…

(1) Pierce the paper in two spots directly across from each other (one on the flap and the other on the bottom portion) using a Paper Piercing Tool. Punch two 1/2″ circles from card stock. Pierce a hole in the center of each of them.

(2) Pierce a small brad through the holes on the card stock first and then through the recipe card holder. Separate the prongs on the brads to make them stay.

(3) Using Baker’s Twine, tie it underneath one of the card stock circles, twice – to make a knot. Be careful not to tie to tightly and rip the card stock.

(4) Insert the recipe cards in the holder and wrap the Baker’s Twine several times to close the flap.

(5) The finished product!

I hope you enjoyed “cooking week” for something a little different. I’ll have more cute projects  in the next few weeks that you won’t want to miss. Subscribe to my blog below (just enter your email address) so you’re sure not to miss anything! Have a great weekend! 🙂

Recipes and Free Printable

Welcome back to “cooking week!”

I wanted to share the recipes I used on Monday in today’s post and give you a free printable that I created using Stampin’ Up!’s My Digital Studio (MDS) products. If you’re crafty with a computer, then MDS is perfect for you – simply purchase your products in digital format, create your project, and order it with Stampin’ Up!’s professional printing options.

You can read more about My Digital Studio, get started with a 30-day free trial, or learn about the 31% off MDS promotion – only available during August 2012.

Not interested in MDS? It’s okay – you can still purchase Stampin’ Up! products in digital format and use them with other applications!

This cute recipe card uses the Domestic Goddess Designer Series Paper, which is retired in the Annual Catalog. It’s not retired as an MDS product, though. You can download a free printable recipe card (sized at 3.5″ x 5″) below. All you have to do is print, cut, and write!

Single Recipe Card

Two Recipe Cards on a Page

And now for the recipes (both found on Pinterest; instructions modified):

BROWNIE / COOKIE SURPRISE

Press a layer of refrigerated cookie dough in greased mini muffin pans. Place Reese’s peanut butter cup upside down on top of the dough. (You can use mini Oreo’s, but our favorites were definitely the peanut butter cups.) Fill the top of the cup (to about 3/4 full) with brownie batter. Bake at 350*F for about 18 minutes.

MINI APPLE PIES

You can really use your own pie recipe for these and bake them in regular sized muffin pans. But for the purpose of a recipe, I’ll share with you what I did. Peel, core, and slice two apples. Mix them in cinnamon, sugar, and about a teaspoon of flour. Cut your pie dough into six circles using a large circle cookie cutter or the top of a large plastic container. (I used pre-made pie doug and a bread crumb container lid.) Press the circles into your muffin pan and fill with apple mixture. Cut six more circles of pie dough. Using a straw or something similar, cut a design in the pie dough. Place on top of the filled muffin cups and pinch around the edges to seal. Baste with egg to give the golden brown look. Bake at 350*F for about 30 minutes.

Check back on Friday for the completed project – encompassing everything in this week’s posts!
