Monday Menu

Pin It

It has been quite some time since I posted anything, but even longer since I have posted our menus on the blog, I am going to see if I can start doing that again.  We went to Utah last weekend (President's Day weekend) for a Shelf Reliance conference - it was SO much fun and we learned SO much.  That conference has dramatically adjusted our cooking - it has been so easy! I love not having to remember to take something out of the freezer - just go to our "store" and grab it off the shelf.

So for this week we are having...

Sunday - Chicken Taco Soup (used all THRIVE) including their new Instant Beans (ready in 20 minutes and no sodium!)  We also made a version of this soup with the taco TVP - Adam preferred this version, I liked the Freeze Dried Chicken version. 

Monday - Leftovers (we made a few things last week that we still have some of - BBQ Chicken & Cornbread - all made in the crockpot; and Shepard's Pie - using the Freeze Dried Ground Beef)

Tuesday - Broccoli Potato Cheese Soup (an entree from THRIVE)

Wednesday - Beef Stroganoff (using THRIVE) This is from a recipe in their new cookbook!

Thursday - Enchilada Bake (ummm... you guessed it using THRIVE - it really is that good!)  This is also in the new cookbook

Friday - Cooking demonstration at our place

Saturday - Cooking demonstration for breakfast - 10am & dinner - 6pm ... want to come? Just send me an e-mail!

Sunday - Leftovers

Snacks: THRIVE freeze dried fruit, THRIVE yogurt bits, apples, bananas, goldfish, cereal in a bag

Sarah did a great job with these envelopes. What a great way to get TWO uses out of the one product!

{Sunday Scraps}

Pin It

Here are the pages I scrapped & projects/challenges I completed this week...


I am on Studio Basic's CT as a guest. This uses a new release called Love, Love, Kiss, Kiss that recently came out.

Another similar card but this one uses my Write It Out: Greeting Sentiments for the sentiment/word art.



{images linked to my ScrapMatters gallery}

And this hybrid brag book that I am going to give to my family tomorrow. The pages were all created - except for the #1 page which I modified to include a spot for all of us.

Linking this post up to the following challenges:

Calendar It: 2012 11x8.5 Layered & Invitation Envelopes {with cutting files}

Pin It

One of my most popular items are my layered Calendars - they are perfect for customizing your calendar for this year {use the 2011 one} or getting next years done now... many like to have them all ready to print for 2012 when November comes around.  But they can also be used for P365, P52 or just random images from during the month. I also have one for 2010 as well that will allow you to put together a quick book of pictures from the year.

Some examples of ways you can use it:



Linda:                                                                           Me:


Next up I have an older product that I have updated with cutting files. Now you can easily cut out an envelope on your favorite electronic cutter.  The template set comes with 5 different envelope flaps and fits standard invitation sized envelopes {1/4 of a 8.5x11 paper} the cutting file is an SVG file. If you are unable to use that please let me know what type you need.

I know what you might be thinking... ugh! I bought this last year but I want the cutting files. Not a problem - simply e-mail me at KrisisKreations at gmail dot com with your order number and I will get you a coupon code good for 50% off so you can get the updated version.

Here are some fun examples for you:

Hope you have a great week. I will be traveling to Utah for a Shelf Reliance convention and visiting a designer friend next weekend so enjoy this week, Valentine's Day and next weekend as well!

{Sunday Scraps}

Pin It

I have not done a huge amount of scrapbooking in the past year or so, but for 2011 that will be changing. I also hope to post what I have scrapped right here on my blog in a new feature that hopefully is weekly called Sunday Scraps.

{All layouts are linked to my general gallery at ScrapMatters.}

The journaling is from Mommom  {my grandma} directly. This is my grandma and grandpa on my dad's side... It was so fun to scrap this. 

It uses two new releases from ScrapMatters - Blessings by Chelle's Creations and TempBlends Vol. 8 from Jenn Lindsey (guesting)

These pages are also linked to my gallery where you can find all the credits - they use some "older" stuff!



Hopefully I will get more pages scrapped this week to show off!
