How to Create Yummy Recipe Scrapbook Pages

Hello and welcome to the blog.  Shelly with you today sharing another of my recipe layouts for my cookbook scrapbook of family faves.

 

Gather:

  • Original Dew Drops
  • Mini Dew Drops
  • Photo Play “We are Family” Paper Collection with Die Cuts and Cardstock Stickers
  • American Craft Thickers Alpha Stickers
  • Chunky Acrylic Confetti – Color Cast Designs
  • Best Glue Ever
  • Optional:  Machine Stitching

Make it:

 

  • My base measures 8 x 8
  • White Cardstock is trimmed just 1/2″ smaller
  • Journaling is 4 x 4 and was created using the Rhonna Ferrar app on my phone and printed with my Selphy (this is a great way to journal when you are at crops and retreats)  Mat journaling

 

My favorite way to use Dew Drops on my scrapbook layouts is tone on tone for subtle dimension

 

Dew Drops play well with other tiny embellishments when making embellie clusters!

 

and for those who are interested in the recipe…….

 

Thanks for stopping by the blog today – have a creative week!

How to make a Fun Cookbook Layout

Happy Monday!  Shelly with you today sharing the newest addition to my “Family Favorites” cookbook scrapbook.

I love using paper piecings (hand made or pre-made) on my layouts and Dew Drops give that extra texture, dimension and sparkle.

*Note:  At the end of this post I announce the winner of my Dew Drop RAK from my last post!!

Supply List:

8 x 8 White Textured Cardstock (Base)
Diamond Dew Drops
Original Dew Drops
Stand Mixer Paper Piecing from Paper Wizard
“What’s Cookin” Paper Collection – Photo Play

Optional:

Machine Stitching
Inking

Make it!

  • Ink the edges of your paper piecing (use same color for subtle dimension, or black/brown for a more defined look)
  • Assemble piecing
  • Embellish with your Dew Drops and Diamond Dew Drops – – I like using odd number of Dew Drops in my groups with an odd number of groupings – ie I have used 3 clusters of 3 Dew Drops on this piece
  • Recipe is printed on plain white cardstock using Albertsthal Tyewriter Font in 10pt ( recipe size is 4.75 x 4)

Dew Drops & Diamond Drops make this recipe layout EVERYTHING!  Show me YOUR recipe
