Baking Memories with Family at Christmas

2022 - CTMH Baking Memories Page

There has been quite the buzz going around over this adorable Baking Memories page. Everyone is asking, “What size are the circles?” Sometimes I wish we, as Makers, had that information up front so that I could just easily share that information with you. But no worries, I have an answer for you. 😉

First though, can I just say that this was a great day? 2 of my 3 girls gathered at my house to help my mom and I bake up some Chocolate Chip Cookies for this photo shoot. Since I helped collaborate this yummy Paper Pack with the CTMH Home Office, they asked if I would provide them with photos of this special day. I of course said, “YES!”

This fun page is featured on page 4 of the 2022 CTMH Oct-Dec Idea Book. I’m even including a look at the gorgeous color palette along with the page recipe, below…

To answer everyones question about the size of the circles…
Try cutting them at 1.5″ because I’ve seen several pages that used 2″ circles and they were way too big. The entire circle ended up looking like a square on the page, and I know that’s not the look we are all going for, right? Also, I saw a page that used squares of paper instead of the circles which was also way cute! So be sure to think outside of the box a bit when it comes to different useable shapes.

Did you know that my daughter Becca’s Salted Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe makes up the wording that appears on the Scarlet piece of patterned Paper? So very fun!
