Instructions for Recipe Album

Ok, here are the directions on how I made this album for my 6x6" recipe layouts. I had so many wonderful recipes from the last couple of years of recipe swaps and now I have a great place to store them!

This album holds the layouts perfectly :) It is in PDF format. If you can't open the file, just go to adobe.com and download the free pdf reader. To get the instructions click HERE

Another Recipe Album

I had such a great response over the first album, that I did a second class last week. This is the album I made for that class.

I used chipboard to cut out a triangle and covered it in pattern paper. Then I layered two more triangles onto that. It gave this album a wonderful 3-D embellishment!

I used the same large corner on the back cover, but I didn't include a flower there.

I wouldn't normally used these patterns on layouts, but on this album they turned out vibrant, cheerful and just plain fun!

Recipe Album

I made a recipe album in class a couple of weeks ago. It was a huge hit. I had several ask me for photos, so here they are :) The back cover matches the front one. I will be posting the instructions to make one of these on your own later today.

Pic 1 - The front cover for the album. The rings go in the holes on the left
Pic 2 - A close up of the flower I created for the album
Pic 3 - Inside the front cover. I made a little pocket to hide the ends of the ribbon


I participated in a lot of 6x6 recipe page swaps. These little albums will be perfect to hold those recipe pages.

Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers day to all moms out there and to all of their children! Moms are special every day of the year, but this is the day for them to shine. Don't forget to let your mom know how important she is to you.

Have you scrapped a page about your mom? Whether she is here to answer the questions or not, be sure to capture as much about her as you can. Great things to include are the basics like;
where was she born and when
what are/were her favorite foods, colors, music, movies etc
what was her favorite book and why
what did she want to be when she grew up and why
what is her youngest/earliest memory

I'll try to get a layout sketch posted either tomorrow night or monday. I'll be visiting my own mom tomorrow and my daughter, but she doesn't know it yet lol I just adore those grandkids and miss them soooo much.

Take care everyone!

PS Be sure to get a photo with mom tomorrow for your layout! Here is a free file that cuts a gorgeous frame for that photo of you and mom! My mothers day gift to you :)
