Cooking With Cricut- Holiday Blog Hop

If you are looking for the A Thanking We Will Go Blog Hop, Click HERE.


Welcome to Funky Cards and the Cooking With Cricut  Holiday Blog Hop! 

If you've come from visiting Kristal's blog you're in the right place!  If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our fun hop, you can go to the  Cooking With Cricut blog and start at the beginning.


The holidays will soon be here so this is a perfect time to be inspired by our design team.  Each crafter has designed an awesome project to help get your creative juices flowing.  So pour a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy the projects that have been made just for you:)  Along the way each DT member will offer PRIZES and in addition, Cooking With Cricut will have EVEN MORE PRIZES including...


***Assorted Bazzill Cardstock, A Cricut Preserves Cartridge, and TWO $10 download vouchers for digi files from Page-Kits.com.

I come from an Italian background and my mom loves to share her Italian culture and traditions with me and my family.  I thought it would be a fun idea to create a project that could include Italian recipes that could be passed down from one generation to the next.  With that in mind, I contacted two special relatives of mine, Dorothy Prosperi and her daughter, Diane Massetti, and asked them to come up with a Christmas Dinner menu that I could turn into a keepsake.  This menu is now a never ending card and one that anyone could make using their own recipes and give to a family member to keep and enjoy for years to come.


For directions on how to make a never ending card: Click HERE


Merry Christmas- Tis The Season
Celebrating Italian Style

This is the front cover of the menu.  Here you will find a recipe for the appetizer, Italian Quesadillas.  


This shows what the menu looks like as you are opening it from one page to the next.


As you open the card, you will find the recipe for a Maui Poppy Seed dressing to go with your salad, as well as a spinach gratin vegetable side dish.




Moving to the next page you can find the main course.




This panel shows the main course, herbed chicken breasts with cheese.  Are you hungry yet?  We have dessert and drinks to go so get ready to turn the page again!



And now you can see that for after dinner there will be Italian Amaretto and Chocolate Amaretti Cake.  Now that sounds good:)  




From here, the card folds back to the beginning, thus making it a never ending card.




Wouldn't it be great to be able to save your favorite Christmas dinner recipes in one place?  Well, now you can.  You can make a cool menu like this.  It is fun, easy, and it makes a great gift if you want to pass your recipes down to your kids:)  Hope this inspires you.

  73. Your neverending card is awesome ! What a great idea to use the family recipes on it. Being from an Italian family I understand how important good food is and how important old family traditions are. Thanks for sharing. My favorite holdiay dessert is probably the cut out anise cookies my mom and brother and I use to make and decorate together every year at Christmas time. They're both deceased now but the memory of the enjoyment of that tradition lives on in me.
