Best Dishes Cookbook - Poultry

This is probably one of the more time consuming pages that I made for the book.  However, I think it was worth it.  Following the Cricut chart in the post will speed up the process for me the next time I make a book.



Supplies:
Adhesives - ATG
Card stock - black, red, dark orange, orange, light orange, light brown, white (from stash) (These "oranges" are yellowish orange in 3 shades.)
DCWV Nana's Kitchen
Eyelets (3/16")- yellow circle (3)
Tim Holtz alcohol inks - Terra Cotta
Zig black 2-way pen

Tools:
ATG adhesive runner
Cricut
Cricut Cartridges - "From My Kitchen"
Cricut Cartridge - "Just Because Cards"
Eyelet setter
Paper trimmer
Scoreboard and bone folder
Tim Holtz ink applicator tool
Xyron 1.5" and 2.5" sticker makers
Instructions:
The following chart will help with the Cricut cuts.  You will be using "From My Kitchen" and "Just Because Cards" for this page.
From My Kitchen - 
     Page #     Feature Button          Size          Paper
     35            "tabs"                       3.75"        dk orange card stock
     77             "words"                   1.75"        dk orange card stock (cut 3)
     66             "eggs"                      2"             light brown
     66             "eggs" "shift"             2"             white
 Just Because Cards - 
    Page #     Feature Button          Size          Paper
     25            "shift" "lyr 3/sha"        4.5"         black card stock
     25            "layer 1"                    4.5"         black card stock
     25            "shift" "layer 1"           4.5"         red & dk orange card stock
     25            "layer 2"                    4.5"         orange card stock
     25            "layer 3"                    4.5"         orange card stock
     25            "shift" "layer 2"           4.5"         lt orange card stock
  1. Cut 2 pieces of card stock from the Nana's Kitchen Stack to 7" X 9.5".  Set aside the paper chosen for the back to work with later.
  2. Rooster- Using the chart above, cut the rooster pieces.  Using your sticker maker and/or adhesive, adhere the pieces together.  I had a round circle that had been cut sometime in the past in my stash that was the same color as the eggs.  I mounted my rooster in the center.  I'm not sure of the size, but I think the circle may have come from the "Accent Essentials" cartridge.  Any appropriately sized circle would work to make this rooster pop.  Draw faux stitches with the black pen around the edges of the circle.  Adhere to the bottom right corner.
  3. Cut the word "poultry" and the tab from dark orange card stock.  Turn all 3 "poultry" words into stickers and stack on each other to give them added dimension.  Add faux stitching to the words and adhere them to your page.  More on the tab later.
  4. Eggs - Cut the eggs and accent pieces following the chart above.  Adhere the white accents to the eggs (I've found that the Xyron 1.5" sticker maker is perfect for these little pieces.)  I added faux stitching to the eggs only because they were on the other elements of the page.  I am wondering if the eggs would be better without the stitching???  Adhere to the upper left corner.
  5. Using the ATG tape runner, apply a liberal amount of adhesive to the wrong side of the back piece of paper that was set aside.  Adhere the completed front of the page to the back of the page.
  6. Tab - Using your scoreboard and bone folder, score and fold your tab on the center line. Write the word "Poultry" on the front of the tab. Adhere to the middle of the page.
  7. Eyelets - Color the yellow eyelets by using the Tim Holtz "Terra Cotta" alcohol ink and applicator tool.  Cut holes and set 3 eyelets in the left hand margin of your page.
