Mom’s Little Book of Recipes

Hi everyone! Can you believe Christmas Day is only a week away? If you are still searching for gift ideas I would like to share a recipe book I created!


I started by placing  Mat Board on top of the Passport Diecut and place between two plate and run through Diecut Machine. I cut the front/back cover twice and cut a total of four covers from patterned cardstock and adhered those to the front and inside covers. Next I loaded an Art Dauber with Cattail Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and inked the spine of recipe book and let dry. I adhered the front and back covers to the spine.



I placed the following stamps from the Cookies Clear Stamp Set onto an acrylic block: Mixing Bowl (stamp twice), Wooden Spoon (stamp twice) and ink with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink, stamped onto various patterned cardstock and fussy cut all  images out. I placed the”Merry”, Cookies, and Swirl Cookie onto an acrylic block. Ink the “M” (stamp twice), “S” (stamp once) and Swirl Cookie with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink onto patterned cardstock and fussy cut both “M”s, “S” and Swirl Cookie out.


I printed from the computer “Little Book of Recipes” and cut each word and ink edges with Scuba Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink along with two scraps of patterned cardstock. I adhered the scraps of cardstock, the letters and swirl cookie to spell out Mom’s Little Book of Recipes and Mixing Bowl and Wooden Spoon image on the cover. Next I embellished the “M”‘s and “S” and Swirl Cookie with Clear Glitter Glue.


I strung and tie off elastic cording in the spine.


I cut patterned cardstock to fit the fronts and backs of three notebooks and adhered. I placed the doily stamp from the Cookie Clear Stamp Set onto an acrylic block and ink with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of patterned cardstock. I stamped the doily three times and fussy cut each doily out and adhered to the front of each notebook. I placed the Cookies stamp onto an acrylic block, inked with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamp onto a piece of patterned cardstock and cut out.  


I also stamped the heart and gingerbread man stamps onto a piece of kraft cardstock with Leather Archival Dye Ink and fussy cut both images out. I adhered the gingerbread man to the front of the “Cookies” notebook. I forgot to mention that before adhering one of the doily to the cover I stamped the “Baked with Love” sentiment onto the doily. I adhered the heart to the corner of the sentiment and embellished both the gingerbread and heart with clear glitter glue. I adhered one mixing bowl and wooden spoon images to the center of the doily of the last notebook.


I placed each recipe book underneath elastics cording and if I wanted to I could add a couple of my favorite recipes and a few cookies cutters before giving as a gift. 

If you do have any questions about this project please let me know.


Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
