baked with love ... vintage recipe album


The weeks are whizzing by and here we are back at Friday again. Today's challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity is anything but a card. Maybe my favourite theme :)



 warning: very photo heavy post

I made the 'baked with love' title on the front, by taking a piece of Maya Road chipboard piece, painting it with PaperArtsy ~ Fresco paints and then using rub-ons for the words.


I've used mostly Webster's Pages ~ Sweet Season papers throughout, but I've thrown some other bits & pieces in. These are Christmas papers but I've tried not to have it all looking like Christmas as I wanted it to be a recipe book for the whole year through.


I have used both the 12 and 6 inch versions of the paper and lots of kraft paper.


Some of the edges have been die cut with a Magnolia ~ Doo Hickey die.

For this page I made a pocket and filled it with some handmade recipe tags.


Front of tags:

 
 Back of tags:


The next page is a piece of Hambly acetate ... which I love.



Lots of machine stitching on this album ....

... and different sized pages.


A Maya Road Kraft Pocket.


Another pocket filled with tags.




 OK, this page is a fun one and one of my favourites.


Two mini pockets with pull out tags.
