Mock Apple Pie Recipe Layout

Hello Ruby Rock-It Fans!  Today I wanted to share with you how making kits helps me create.
Creating a kit is the first step I do when crafting, I do this as I find it helps me create.  I find things flow better if I have a selection of supplies that may suit my project ready to go so I can just play.
Today's kit and project were inspired by the gorgeous Apples paper from Bella Red Gallery.

There is bit of a story to how this project came about.
When I saw this gorgeous Apple paper from Ruby Rock-It, I wanted Apple Pie but there is one big problem as my kids and I have Fructose Malabsorption so we can't eat apples.  I was telling my friend who also has Fructose Malabsorption and she told me she found a recipe for a Appleless Apple Pie that uses Jatz crackers. Intrigued I did some googling and from what I can tell this started as a practical joke but as someone who can't eat apples but loves apple pie this is awesome.
I decided since there is some excellent gastronomical science in this recipe that it would be a great educational activity to do with the boys.  However life chaos has meant I haven't baked the pie yet but I have converted the recipe to metric and written it on a index card so today I am scrapping that card onto a 12x12 layout.

Now back to my kit, in it I included :-
Bella Red Gallery Red Gallery Apples RG509
Bella French Country Worktop FCY92
Bella French Country Cluck FCY08
Bella French Country Straw FCY78
Fundamentals Kraft Med Circle Tags FNT36
Ruby Rock-It Happy Days Stamp HYE56
Ruby Rock-It Faded Empire Stamp FDE39
Fundamentals White Doilies
Fundamentals White Mini Pegs
Ruby Rock-It Micro Beads Red
Ruby Rock-It Chipboard Alphas

Once I started working I decided to add 3 Mini Distress Inks to my kit.  Antique Linen, Vintage Photo and Fired Brick.

I stared by cutting my papers.  I cut a 4 1/4 x 6 1/4 piece from Cluck, 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 from Straw, 6x8 from Apples and 8x10 from Worktop.

As I played with my papers and my index card I felt the index card needed to be aged so I blended Antique Linen Distress Ink over the index card and blended the edges of my Cluck and Straw papers also.

I then just slightly edged these papers, my index card and the Worktop paper with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I edged my Apple paper with Fired Brick Distress Ink. 
I also blended Antique Linen around the edge of my background cardstock and then edged it with Fired Brick and then a slight edge of Vintage photo.

I glued down my Worktop paper approximately 1 inch in from the left side and the top and bottom then glued the Straw and Cluck papers down on a angle but I only added my glue in the centre so I would be able to tuck thing in as I played.  I added my index card at a angle too. 

Later when I had all my embellishments down I decided to add a white paper doily, I cut it in half and tucked it under my papers.  I then glued the edges of my papers down.

I painted the letters to spell Pie and a flower from the chipboard alphas with red paint. Once the paint was dry I inked them with Fried Brick Distress Ink.  Once this was dry I sealed them with Helmar Crystal Kote Gloss Varnish to give them a nice shine and to ensure if my layout ever gets wet that the ink won't run. 
I then sealed all my papers and index card with Helmar Chrystal Kote Matte Varnish to ensure they won't run either.

I needed some flowers so I decided to make a flower from the remainder of my Apples paper and the cardstock I cut away from behind where the Worktop paper was going.
I grabbed my nearest flower punch and punched out 3 flowers from my paper.  I coloured the back of my flowers with Fired Brick Distress Ink and edged them once dry.  When half dry I scrunched them up and unraveled them.

I glued my layers together by placing a drop of Helmar Acid Free Glue in the middle and layering them slightly off centre.
I then added a drop of Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive and poured some of the gorgeous Ruby Rock-It Micro Beads onto it.  I grabbed a tooth pick and sort of mixed them into the glue a little and then I grabbed out my Just Bead It JBX84 Round Brass Beads, Silver and dipped 3 per flower into some Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive and added them on top of the Micro Beads.

I thought the Circle Tags could make a cute representation of a pie so I gave a tag the same treatment I gave my cardstock and I blended the edge with Antique Linen Distress Ink and then edged it with Fired Brick and Vintage Photo.  I tucked it under my photo matts and added my letters.

I then added my 2 big flowers and filled out my cluster with some little brown roses from my stash.

I love how the 2 different papers coloured with Fired Brick Distress Ink turned out.
I scrunched them a little more once glued down.

I added my chipboard flower to the top right corner of my index card.

To finish off my layout I dabbed my Fired Brick Distress Ink onto my craft sheet and added water, I then splattered it with a paint brush all over my layout to look like I had spilt something on it while cooking.

Thank you for reading my post.  Have you ever had a scrapbooking supply inspired you to search for recipes?
