Last week we celebrated Lawn Fawn & Scrapbook Adhesives week and I made a recipe book that you've probably already seen at the Lawn Fawn blog.
I wanted to share it here too with some explanations on how I made it.
The size of the recipe book and each of the recipe pages are 4 1/4" x 5 1/2", just the size of a standard card base so I can got 4 pages from each white cardstock (I used Neenah).
First I rounded the corners and made the holes of each page and then I placed my stamps on a Fiskars Stamping Press to help me stamp always in the same place. I used Sally's ABCs for "RECIPE" and then one of the sentiments from Baked with Love.
The lines were made with School Backdrops, placing some washi tape on the sides of the page so the ink doesn't reach the edges. Of course you can make this with a pen and a ruler.
Finally I adhered the Scrapbook Adhesives corners to hold a picture of the recipe. I placed a piece of cardstock with a stamped camera instead so it looks pretty until I add a real picture.
For the front page I used a thicker cardstock (also Neenah) and adhered two stripes of patterned paper from Pint Sized Patterns: Beachside. Then I stamped, colored with Copic markers and cut all the little images from Baked with Love and arranged them together on the base. For the frame I used a Scrapbook Adhesives 3D foam sheet that I cut with the frame die to give it some dimension.
I used my Crop-A-Dile to make the holes and put a pair of pretty eyelets so the book looks more professional (or cute, at least haha).
The same explanation works for the back side, where I used the image and sentiment from Baked with Love too.
I hope you like my little project, I think I'm going to use it or maybe make another in Spanish. The good thing is that you can add as many pages as you need and if you consider that it takes too long to make each page (it's not too much if you work in an organized way, I tell you :)) but you can always print the inside pages with a design you create on the computer :)
If you have any doubts, just send me an email! Thank you so much for stopping by, huuuuuugs!!
