National Homemade Cookie Day ~ FotoBella DT

     Grab a glass of milk because today is National Homemade Cookie Day! I love cookies so much my mom used to call me a cookie monster when I was young. Lol! But now I only like homemade ones, so I decided to scrap a photo of some lemon sugar cookies that I made, using the Stamperia Lemons Stencil and the Bo Bunny Serendipity Paper Bundle from

     The title was cut with my Cricut Expression, and given a coat of Yellow Stickles to match the sugar on the cookies. Then I used Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink with my Blending Tool around the edges of the background leaf paper, before machine stitching it.

     The leaf border on the green paper was stamped with the Prima Marketing Garden Fable Stamp using permanent green ink.

     Then I applied Prima Marketing White Gesso to the Finnabair Doily Stencil, smooshed with some Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink, to place my cookies on.

     I also applied Prima Marketing White Gesso to the Stamperia Lemons Stencil, let it dry, and reapplied the stencil again to color with Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions Paints (Lemon Zest, Pure Sunshine, Fresh Lime, Cut Grass, Dirty Martini, Black Marble, and Melted Chocolate).

     Finally, I tore a page from an old dictionary with some lemon words on it, and inked the edges again with Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink. Then I gave it a light coat of white gesso, adding the flower from my stash.

     Thanks for looking, and happy National Homemade Cookie Day!
