I don’t get to join in the challenge…but I do want to join in the fun! Here is the little mini I whipped up for the recipe theme for our blog challenge. Super fun paper and lot’s of it. 6 layers just on the front cover! I added a few flowers from Petaloo. The top one I had to use some orange marmalade Distress ink on to make the color pop. The center is a chip element that I covered in a flower pattern that was on a scrap from the patterned paper…topped off with a cute little brad. A few buttons for some accent color and that is a recipe for a sweet little book cover.
First set of pages with recipe cards attached at the top and secured at the bottom with a little metal element. The card flips up…so more room to add your recipe details. Notice the tabs on the side of the pages??? I just love em! I should have put dessert first though…darn! There is a lot of pattern going on here so all it needed for embellishment was a few buttons.
There is a pocket on the right of this set of pages to tuck in extra recipes. Another flip up card and a sweet little flower I made simply by layering some buttons on a paper flower and leaf. Very cheerful I think.
This has turned out to be my favorite set of pages. Funny considering that when I was assembling them I wasn’t sure I was going to like them at all. lol . It came to life after I added the little paper strips to the pocket…then layered on some flower parts. The center of the flower is another piece cut from the scrap I mentioned earlier. It just goes to show that even little scraps can make a big impact!
