Come share my love of paper crafting and card making.

Here is the recipe book I made for my Mom for Christmas. She lost everything in a fire a couple of years ago so I thought it would be fun to make this book with some of her old recipes and some newer recipes. I cut the cover using Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. The dividers were cut at 4 1/4" using the From My Kitchen cartridge, I used the tabs on the first 3 keys. I used the Center Point feature to cut out all of the recipe pages and the extra pages I included in the book. I used one of the recipe cards on the cartridge also cut at 4 1/4". I cut the tabs also from the From My Kitchen cartridge. The actual words, I printed on the same color card stock as the tabs and made a cut from Lyrical Letters at 3/4" tall and 1.1/2" wide. I then cut each one individually using the file I created. On the cover I cut the word recipe from the From My Kitchen cartridge at 1 1/2" and also cut the oval at the same size. The apron I cut at 3" and cut all the layers. I used my Bind-It-All to bind it. I am really pleased how this turned out.
