Recipe book anyone

Good morning! Today I am going to share a project that I created for Our Daily Bread designs using the Chipboard Recipe book that can be found HERE. These make for wonderful gift ideas for family, weddings or even graduates moving out on their own. This one is a family favorites recipe book with some of our favorites. 

This is the front of the recipe book. Each page is covered with a base designer paper of large or small dotted paper adhered with glue and tape. The tab Appetizers is using ODBD Custom Elegant Ovals die that I have wrapped across the top so that it has the tag on both sides. Appetizers sentiment is from stamp set Recipe Tags Categories which is perfect for the book sections. Recipes in the center is also die cut and stamped on the Elegant Ovals die. The base background you will notice is the shape of a recipe card from the ODBD Custom die Recipe and tags set. Stamped the silverware stamp from Recipe Icons to the base and adhered to the chipboard cover.  Added my little wooden rolling pin up on dimesnionals and some flourished pearls with loads of rosets from Pat. 

Turn the page over and here are two different ways I created pockets for the recipe cards. First is my appetizers that has a ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders die cut layer in pink adhered to white card stock. A few more rosets to the corner and some jewels. You can probably fit about 6 recipe cards in here rather snug and be okay, if you wanted to fit more you would want to over lap your pockets a few inches and have two pockets. The Desserts (Yes I put the favorites up front hee hee) is using a side pocket of the ODBD Custom Doily die that has a darling cupcake from Baking Gift Tags stamp set. This pocket is from the side and can fit about 4-5 recipe cards. Tied off a charm and pink ribbon bow and a roset center. 

My next page is for Breads and Rolls, yumo!  The recipe card has another of the Recipe Icon stamps in the corner along with the stamped lines from Recipe Card Lines stamp. Makes it really easy to transfer recipes when the lines are stamped on the cards. Another little pocket created with ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders die

My easy peasy recipes using Crock Pot tag from Recipe Card Categories stamp set with a pocket from of the awesome ODBD Custom Ornate Hearts die with a center scallop circle using Baking Gifts tags stamp set and ODBD Custom Recipe and Tags Die. Lots of bling through out and these awesome rosets from my sweet friend Pat! 
That's it from me today we have a busy busy week. Hope you are inspired to create your own recipe book. Have a wonderful day!

Stacy...that is one inspiring project!! Love your choice of colors and all the details. Ii am looking for ideas for recipe boxes for our daughters. I wonder if the tabs would for into a box rather than a book? And those mini roses from Pat are so pretty!!
