Creative Embellishments and Graphic 45’s Farmhouse collection make a great cookbook!



A little background, Every year my scrappy bff’s come for a visit.  We scrap, have a few cocktails and eat, alot!  I am the cook, it is my other hobby.  I have gathered many of our “Maggi Camp” recipes into this book.
Here’s the gang.


I used Wood Veneer Recipe Words throughout the cookbook.  I left them in their natural state as they looked great on the cookbook as is.


They were too large to fit on the tabs I had but I decided that didn’t matter.  The tabs divide the sections and help turn the pages.  I thought the titles worked well just beneath the tabs.


…or at the bottom of the page.


Yes, “from my kitchen to yours”, its the perfect quote for a cookbook, or a food gift.  I heat embossed the words with black and mustard embossing powders.


I am a firm believer that good food makes for a good life!

The Cinch – used to bind to book


Does anyone use a cookbook these days?  I had a bookcase full of them but gave 90% of them away when we moved.  When I am looking for a recipe I usually run to my computer.  Of course I have my Mom’s 4 recipe boxes and in there I know are some treasured recipes from my childhood.  I really need to go through them and organize!
Thanks for stopping by today!
