Yummy 1 Point Banana Blueberry Pancakes

By Lisa Freeman | March 10, 2018

Hey Everyone!

Today is a non stamping post. I am doing Weight Watchers right now (online) and I love the new Freestyle program.

I am not losing weight as fast as I have in the past,  but I also don’t feel deprived and I feel like this is something I can do for life.

I am making small changes in the things I eat and trying to stick with the program as much as I can. I do fall of the wagon sometimes, but then I just start over again the next day.

This morning I was craving pancakes and I have tried a couple of Weight Watchers recipes I found on Pinterest, but they just weren’t exactly what I was looking for.  

So, I combined a couple different ones to come up with this one and it is sooooo good!!! They are only 1 point each too!! 

 

They were so light and fluffy. I just sprayed the pan with Pam and they cooked easily. 

I cut up a banana on top and then added some sugar free syrup….no butter for me…..

I ate 3 and was full. I still have 3 left for tomorrow. Can’t wait!!

This is the syrup I used and it was delicious. 1 point per serving. 

So, here is the recipe….

2 ripe bananas mashed

2 eggs beaten

1 small container plain greek non fat yogurt (about 5 oz)

1/2 c SELF RISING flour ( you can substitute other flours, but you would have to add baking powder or soda)

1/2 tsp cinnamon

handful of blueberries

Mix everything together and cook in skillet sprayed with Pam. 

This batch made 6 pancakes at 1 point each. The only ingredient with points is the flour, so if you substitute something else for that , you could lower the points but I didn’t like the consistency without the flour. 

Enjoy!!

Have a great day!

Heartfelt Blooms is SOOOO Gorgeous I Just Can’t put it Down!

By Lisa Freeman | March 5, 2018

Hey everyone!

I knew when I first saw the Sale-abration mini catalog that the Heartfelt Blooms set would be my favorite and it definitely is! This set is so beautiful by itself.

You really don’t even have to be creative to make a gorgeous card with it. Just stamp it and add some words or ribbon and it’s good to go. 

For this card, I started with a piece if lemon lime twist cardstock and stamped the Marbled background on it in lemon lime twist.

Then I cut 3 pieces of white cardstock at 3 1/4 by 1 1/4.

I stuck them on a postit note to keep them together while I stamped the main image(in Bermuda bay) and then pulled them off and adhered to the Bermuda bay piece which is 4 1/4 by 3 1/2. 

I used the Bermuda bay ribbon that is free in the sale-abration ribbon bundle and also added a clear faceted gem to the center of the flower. The words are also included in the stamp set.

Using Brusho with the Stampin Up Masks to Create Backgrounds!

By Lisa Freeman | March 2, 2018

Hey everyone!

I wanted to share another brusho technique with you today. You can use your Stampin Up masks for more than just embossing paste and sponging.

You can create amazing backgrounds with the brusho powders and the masks, and it is so easy. Here is the card I made doing this technique

For this card, I used the yellow, gamboge, and red brusho crystals. I taped the watercolor paper to a paper towel first so that it wouldn’t curl up when it gets wet.

Then I placed the brick wall on top of the watercolor paper and sprinkled with those 3 colors. I spritzed it with water and then carefully dabbed off the excess liquid. Then lift off the mask and let dry.

I created a video with all the details and directions so please check it out. If you are getting this in an email, just click the link to my blog to see the video.

Just Found This Video For the Tie Dye Technique That I Forgot to Post!

By Lisa Freeman | February 27, 2018

Hey Everyone!

I can’t believe I just found a video I did a few months ago and realized I never posted it! Sometimes I am such a dingbat! LOL!

I made this card last summer and posted it and for some reason I forgot to post the video to go with it so here ya go!!

For this card, I used lemon lime twist, night of navy and the Delightful Daisy stamp set with matching punch. 

Here is a close up of the daisy. I stamped it in night of navy, then sponged the edges in lemon lime twist and then took the wink of stella brush and colored the center and the inside half of the flower. It really blended the navy nicely. I love that effect. 

And here is the video tutorial to go with it!

 

 

There are so many gorgeous products in the Delightful Daisy Suite. You will want to get all of the matching papers, ribbons and accessories to go with your stamp set.

Another Brusho Explosion of Color!

By Lisa Freeman | February 25, 2018

Hey everyone!

Here is another card I made with the Stampin Up Brusho Crystals. I just love the burst of color you get when water hits these crystals. 

For this card, I lightly spritzed the watercolor paper and then sprinkle it with the yellow, orange and red crystals.

Then I spritzed it again and the colors just exploded all over the paper. I blotted it with a paper towel and let dry.

After it was completely dry, I stamped the flower from the Remarkable You and the words from the new Sale-abration set Happy Wishes. That set is free with your $100 order through the end of March.

 

 

 

The ribbon is also a freebie from Sale-abration. It is shimmery calypso coral. You get 3 rolls of different colored ribbon in one pack for free with a $50 order!

Creating Your Own Ink Pads with Brusho Crystals.

By Lisa Freeman | February 24, 2018

Hey everyone!

I came up with a technique similar to the baby wipe technique using the Brusho Crystals.

It is so easy and creates a really neat looking watercolor background.

For this card, I used Bermuda bay cardstock and watercolor cardstock (3×4 1/2).

I created ink pads using paper towels and the brusho crystals to stamp the images.
