Midnight Rooster Mini Kit Giveaway

This is my first month designing for Midnight Rooster. The December kit landed in my mailbox and I was super excited. At heart I love to mix up patterned paper in unexpected ways and the Midnight Rooster kits really do this perfectly. Every month the designers get to giveaway a mini kit.

December mini kit 

So how this works is leave me a comment telling me about your favorite holiday cookies to bake and if you don't bake hey that's okay just tell me about your favorite cookies to eat. Links to your favorite recipes are greatly appreciated. One of our favorite cookies to have this time of year is Mexican Wedding Cakes. I am fond of the Joy of Cooking recipe. I am a little late posting this ... newbie design team member. I will have to pick my winner tomorrow night.

How about a couple of projectsI made with the December kit? The kit was endless and I made quite a few things so I am going to only show a couple right now. SFdec1a 
(Supplies Used: Scrap Fabric, 7 Gypsies Buttons, handmade Midnight Rooster stick pins and thread)

Okay so I went a little out of the box here but really could you blame me. I loved the idea of making a little pin cushion from the scrap of fabric from the kit. Batting and thread were the only non kit items I used when I made this. If you don't need a pin cushion this could double a Barbie pillow.

(Supplies Used: Cardstock Bazzill, Patterned Paper October Afternoon, Rubons October Afternoon, misc punches, American Crafts Thickers, handmade Midnight Rooster stick pin and font Arial Narrow downloaded from the internet)

You know how I talk about having little "ahhh haa" moments when I scrapbook. I had one when I dotted the 'i" with the custom made pin wheel stick pin. Man I just love this it's super simple but so effective.

Okay that's plenty to digest for now. Remember to stop by over the weekend to see the rest of my projects. Have a great day and don't forget to leave a comment for your change to win. :)

  1. The cookies I love to bake are called "cowboy" cookies. They're chocolate chip, with oatmeal, pecans, and other yummy ingredients ... they are a little taste of heaven.

  2. Funny you should mention the mexican wedding cakes. I just made my mom's version of something similar to send to my brother in Germany. My mom is from Germany and made this type of cookie but simply calls them cookie balls. I love them! They almost melt in your mouth!

  3. oh the pin cushion is just darling! i love vanilla gipfeli..which are swiss moon shaped cookies. thanks for the chance to win the kit.

  4. Well I am just a plain old Chocolate Chip or Peanut butter cookie kinda of girl. Nothing fancy....just recipe off the back of a package of cholocate chips.

  6. To be honest, we don't do cookies at our house, we do fudge, peanut butter fudge, OMG, it is the best ever. I got the recipe years ago out of a Taste of Home magazine.

  7. My version of baking means Pilsbury ready made cookie dough! LOL...And Chocolate Chip is my favorite! However, I love Monster cookies and am preparing myself to actually make some based on PW's recipie for them!
