Simple Stories Recipe Book Part One for SBB


I kept busy before leaving for the UK with this little project for Scrapbook Boutique............Well for me too really, it's another step in organising my life!

I'm sure I'm not the only person who collects scribbled recipes from friends. Please tell me you too punch holes into rice packets because that recipe looks interesting and you never know, one day you might just have enough cooked rice left over along with some lamb!  I've been collection recipes for years and lots of them are real family favourites.  My problem is that I either 'stuff' them between the pages of my favourite chef's 'masterpiece'.....or into this back plastic A4 folder.

I was browsing through the Scrapbook Boutique on line store (go take a look, it's like Aladdin's cave for us Paper crafters ) where I found these fabulous Journals  with  8.5" x 7"plastic inserts. They're part of the Simple Stories range, I chose the one bound in red.  The range also includes a 6 x 6 paper pack of double sided design paper. 4 x 6 Journal cards as well as Recipe inserts.  Everything I'd need to make up my own recipe book, perfect!

Today, on the Scrapbook Boutique blog you can find how I've 'dressed' the front of my recipe book as well as a look at the inside page.  I've share another post showing a couple of my recipe pages a little later on and maybe swap a recipe or two :)

Thanks for calling past.

Not sure about you but I put on kilos just looking at all that gorgeous chocolate!!!!  My card uses the the colours chocolate brown and yellow with the circles to represent the 'Rollo'.......:-)

  • I stamped the image in Memento Rich Cocoa, coloured with Prisma pencils and cut the image out by hand.
  • Add layers of mustard and chestnut card to a 4" x 5.5" top fold card, with double sided tape.
  • Die cut the hello word sentiment twice from mustard card and using the X-Press It glue pen adhere the word to the chocolate card.
  • Trim a strip of polka dot dp to the bottom of the card.
  • Add the stamped and coloured image over the top of the dp to complete. I used the X-Press It glue pen again for this.

Thanks for dropping by, I hope you'll play along.
