More Sneak Peeks!

I had SO much fun making this little recipe book. The set(s) I used are "My Favorite Recipes" and "Coaster Journaling".

My Favorite Recipies contains 35 stamps for just $9.99. It contains a few bigger words (Family, Recipes, My favorite, Holiday), a few artsy images to decorate with, and then a bunch of smaller words for the categories (like pastries, side dishes, cookies, casseroles, canning, etc).

Ok...without further are some pictures of my book. I had a hard time getting it to photgraph well. The green turned out more "neon" in color that it truly is. In real life this little book has a vintage feel to it. I sponged all the edges with brown ink to distress and add to that effect.

To put it all together I used my friend's Bind It All machine. That is still on my Christmas wishlist if there is a Santa hiding somewhere! LOL.

This really was a fun set to work with. And with the holidays approaching...I see more possibilities to use it approaching!
