Another Recipe Album

I had such a great response over the first album, that I did a second class last week. This is the album I made for that class.

I used chipboard to cut out a triangle and covered it in pattern paper. Then I layered two more triangles onto that. It gave this album a wonderful 3-D embellishment!

I used the same large corner on the back cover, but I didn’t include a flower there.

I wouldn’t normally used these patterns on layouts, but on this album they turned out vibrant, cheerful and just plain fun!

Recipe Album

I made a recipe album in class a couple of weeks ago. It was a huge hit. I had several ask me for photos, so here they are 🙂 The back cover matches the front one. I will be posting the instructions to make one of these on your own later today.

Pic 1 – The front cover for the album. The rings go in the holes on the left
Pic 2 – A close up of the flower I created for the album
Pic 3 – Inside the front cover. I made a little pocket to hide the ends of the ribbon

I participated in a lot of 6×6 recipe page swaps. These little albums will be perfect to hold those recipe pages.

Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers day to all moms out there and to all of their children! Moms are special every day of the year, but this is the day for them to shine. Don’t forget to let your mom know how important she is to you.

Have you scrapped a page about your mom? Whether she is here to answer the questions or not, be sure to capture as much about her as you can. Great things to include are the basics like;

  • where was she born and when
  • what are/were her favorite foods, colors, music, movies etc
  • what was her favorite book and why
  • what did she want to be when she grew up and why
  • what is her youngest/earliest memory

I’ll try to get a layout sketch posted either tomorrow night or Monday. I’ll be visiting my own mom tomorrow and my daughter, but she doesn’t know it yet lol I just adore those grandkids and miss them soooo much.

Take care, everyone!
