I did National Chocolate Chip Day. It is May 15th. I can't think of a better way to celebrate it than with some good cookies, with chocolate chips in them. I made two 8 1/2" x 11" layouts. They are going into a binder with plastic sleeves to protect the recipes. It is for my oldest niece. She has asked that I write down all my recipes. This will take a while to do, so I thought i would start with these two recipes.
The digis are by Clear Dollar Stamps- cookies and milk it is a digi stamp called We go together like... You can find it here. http://www.cleardollarstamps.com/ The other digi of the boy reaching for a cookie while looking back is a freebie by Two For Tuesday. You can find it here. http://digitaltuesday.blogspot.com/
Copics used on the Milk and cookies are R29, R35, R59, B01, B05, B29, E00, E11, E33, E37, E57,
The cookies are cut out using Cricut From My Kitchen cartridge row 4 button 8 at 2". It is 2 cookies together a chocolate chip cookie and gingerbread man. I put the gingerbread man in a baggie to save for Christmas. I did the layers and shadow cuts. The fold of the carton of milk was done using colored Prisma Colored Pencils. I forgot to write down what I used.
Copics used on the boy reaching for cookies are E000, E00, E01, E02-skin, BG01, BG05, B97-clothing, E33, E57-shoes, Plate and bowl- Y17, Y21, YR23, cookies on plate- E11, E31 and brown gelly roll pen for chips, table- E11, E33, E57, E59, floor- Y21, Y31, wall- YG61, hair-E15.
The pile of chocolate chips is hand drawn by myself and colored with Copics E31, E29, E57, E59, C7There was a lot of layering done on them.
The tags are a Cuttlebug die/embossing folder called Embossed Tags. The words Chocolate Chips are wrote with Copics R31 and E59.
The brown cardstock chips are hand cut. This is where I wish I had drawn them first.
The papers are by Recollections-browns and tan, Georgia Pacific-white, and DCWV Stack 7 print.
Here is the complete lineup.
