Recipe Album

While I was at my first craft show, someone asked if I had any recipe books in the midst of my handmade albums. Sadly, at the time, I did not. I did however have a really cute album I decided to make on a whim using my We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board. Making the pages out of envelopes themselves using the patterned paper from Heidi Swapp's Sugar Chic album kept the album simple, yet still interactive.

I went by the store the other day browsing paper collections and stumbled across Carta Bella's Homemade with Love by Carina Gardner collection kit. It's adorable and absolutely perfect for a recipe themed mini album.

It only took me a day to construct the album, make the pages, and put it all together. I am waiting on some protective sleeve covers for the recipe cards I printed out to arrive, then the album will be completely finished!

Most of the projects I do seem to take forever and a day for me to complete (when it feels like they should have been done wayyy sooner) and I have a legitimate reason! She goes by "Makayla" or simply "Crazy Baby." So I'm off to make a Baby Boy Monthly Album! Must get what I can done before the child wakes up :)

  1. I love your sugar chic album! That is one of my all time favorite collections. Not sure why because they just aren't "me" but seriously what paper collection out there is? ;-)
