Recipe Books

I have started preparing for Christmas early. I used the DCWV paper stack, Nana's Kitchen as inspiration for these recipe books. I have completed two so far and have two nearly done. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads to co-ordinate with the cardstock and the colours were Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint and Victorian Velvet. I added Kaiser diamantes and a gorgeous little paper rose. I bound the book with a Zutter Bind-it-all and used Derivan Kindy Glitz to highlight certain aspects of the design. The inside covers were painted with Folk Art metallic paint in light blue and I fussy cut images from one of the DCWV papers. I also used the Fiskars scallop punch for the edges.

I computer printed the recipe cards and created the file in word to fit my cards. I used my Cricut to cut out the cupcakes and created two different ones, one from Home Decor and one cupcake from Wild Card. I inked them and added "sugar" crystals to decorate the 'icing'. I fussy cut some leaves from the Stampin Up roller which I inked in Stampin Up Certainly Celery. I added some Kaiser paper flowers and more bling.

Hope you like them. Have a wonderful day.
