Sundays With Lorraine


Hello, my crafty friends, and welcome back to Weekly Scrapper! Now that we are into December it’s time to kick things up a notch with our holiday preparations. Not to worry, with a little help from your fellow paper crafting peeps you can still crank out some of your famous handmade treasures.

Merry & Bright Layout By Emmy

What’s not to love about this adorable layout that Emmy designed with Bo Bunny’s new Merry & Bright collection? To create a dimensional layer and add visual interest to the layout, Emmy used a polka dot mask and some red glitter paste to create the perfect background for her priceless photo.

Holiday Gift Bags By Lols

These unique little gift bags are the perfect solution for gifting and presenting your holiday treasures. Lols used Lawn Fawn’s must-have Goodie Bag Lawn Cuts Die to create the cute bag, then embellished the bag with the Tim Holtz adorable Mini Dog and Cat Stamp & Die Set.

DIY Art Coasters found on Kelly’s Korner

There is nothing that is more well received than a handmade gift; it really shows how much you care when you take the time to create a gift from the heart. How about a nice bottle of wine and a set of these darling Art Coasters?

Kelly used Spellbinders stamps designed by Tammy Tutterow to creative the festive image on some inexpensive coasters that she purchased at the Dollar Tree Store.

Seafood Cioppino Recipe

If you’re looking for a great seafood recipe for your slow cooker, this classic fish stew is just the ticket. It’s easy enough to make for a special week night family meal and showy enough to make for company during the holidays.

It’s not dinner in under an hour, but it’s definitely worth the effort. This amazing dish only takes about 20 minutes to prepare, then it’s into the crock pot for about five hours, leaving you plenty of time to check off some of your holiday to dos.
