JustRite BlogHop sponsored by Spellbinders(TM) CTMH Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida
Hey y'all! Here I am with a sore throat after coughing my fool head off last week. Good grief! At least I have a desk job, right?
Anyway, I've cooked up a little recipe box to play along with JustRite Stampers' Blog Hop sponsored this week by Spellbinders! The challenge is to share a summer recipe project using JustRite stamps, and then share the recipe!
I used two JustRite stamp sets to create this recipe box with inserts - Joyful Hearts, Borders and Centers on the front label, and the Special Occasions Uppercase font set on the inserts. The front label is probably my favorite part! I embossed the sentiment with Sparkle 'n Sprinkle Cherry Cosmic Opaque Embossing Powder, then cut the sentiment with Spellbinders S4-110 Classic Ovals Large die template, matted with S4-251 Big Scalloped Ovals Large, and mounted on S4-235 Fancy Tags (yum!). All the papers are CTMH's Cherry-O line.
I cut, embossed and stenciled a little scalloped edge on the card inserts with S4-244 Fair Isle borders. The cute little cherry elements are CTMH's Cherry-O Opaque Pearl Stickers. A few buttons, a little ribbon and Stickles and it's complete!
Now for the recipe. Summers are hot here in Florida, so we really enjoy our cold beverages! Here's an awesome recipe for Strawberry Lemonade. Why don't you give it a try and let me know how it turns out?
1 quart fresh strawberris, washed and hulled
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup superfine sugar
3-1/4 cups club soda, chilled
Place strawberries in blender or food processor and process until smooth.
Combine lemon juice and sugar in a pitcher and stir until sugar dissolves. Add strawberry puree, stirring well. Stir in club soda just before serving. Serve over ice. 70 calories per 1 cup serving.
