Christmas Prints Pack for Commercial Use

They're brand new in the shop; so new the pixels are still wet!

6 delightful greyscale overlays for your Christmas projects. This is a mixed variety of greyscale images. Use them as overlays, as masks - use them under a color blend mode. Use them for papers, use them on borders, mats, and other elements.

I loved making the Christmas prints up and wanted to share them with others who might need a real fast paper starter for that new kit.

You'll find more details in the extended preview slideshow in the shop for a peek at the whole page design for each one.

And don't forget to take advantage of my DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT Offer - PM or email me when you use one of my prints in your products for sale. Then I'll feature it on my blog and add it to the most recent previews right in the shop for this set.

Persimmon Pudding - a Holiday Fav

My Grandma Leta Metcalf Atwood served this rich dessert for special occasions while Persimmons were in season, and it is a holiday favorite in our family. We freeze ripe persimmon pulp, blended and measured into 1 C. portions for use in recipes all year long.

Grandma's original recipe card for Persimmon Pudding was dated 1931, from the magazine, California Farm Life.

Try it ... this is a baked pudding, not a custard. You'll LOVE it.

Persimmon Pudding Recipe

Makes 8-9 servings
Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Dry Ingredients:
1 cup Flour
1 cup Sugar
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Soda

1 Egg, well beaten
1/4 cup Milk
1 cup Ripe Persimmon Pulp, (blended, w/ skin on)
1 Tablespoon Vanilla

Add after wet & dry are mixed:
4 Tablespoons Melted Butter (but NOT Hot!)

Nutmeg Sauce:
(make this just before serving it)
1 1/4 cup Boiling Water

2/3 cup Sugar
2 Tablespoon Flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
Dash Nutmeg


Mix dry ingredients together.
Mix wet ingredients together EXCEPT THE BUTTER.

Mix wet and dry together thoroughly. Stir in the melted butter.
Bake at 350 degrees in greased 8x8x2 pan, or 8 inch round cake pan for approx 40-45 minutes. DO NOT OVERBAKE.

We've always found them best when baked at least a day ahead. Store at room temperature.

Directions for Sauce:
Mix dry ingredients VERY well.
Stir into 1 1/4 Cup boiling water.
Add 2 Tblspoon butter to boiling water. Stir fast, cooking at boiling until clear, approximately 5 minutes. Add 1/2 tsp. nutmeg after done (or less to taste)

Serve the Persimmon Pudding with hot Nutmeg sauce over it and a dollop of whipped cream on top.

Falling For You Designer Clusters

Designs by Patchas did these INCREDIBLY GORGEOUS Clusters to match my Falling For You designs. I can't say enough about what a great design eye she has for clustering elements like this!

There's 5 of them, 3 framed clusters, 1 border cluster, and one element cluster. Use them on your Falling For You page layouts for an instant designer touch.

The regular price will be $3 - on sale Sunday and Monday for an introductory 35% off. It doesn't get much less expensive than this!

Enjoy them, I sure will be!

Here's a zoom in of the border cluster (reduced for the web page, of course) ... isn't she brilliant?!

Sports Paper Packs

I love making papers. It's just my favorite thing to do. So that's exactly what I did for a new sports theme collab the designers at NutHouse-Scraps were putting together. Paper Packs. Four of them.

Football, Soccer, Baseball, and Basketball papers. With 4 extra all-purpose ones painted in light that will mix and match. Whether you have players or fans, I think you'll find lots of uses for the variations on each sports theme:

Each sport is available separately, too - but if you need more than kind of ball game, this bundle is priced so inexpensively that it will cost you less to buy the bundle, than to buy two sets!

Perfect for action shots at practice, during games, or for pics of your crowd  sprawled all over the family room watching "THE GAME" on TV.
