Hey, everybody! Well, it’s Thursday so that means we’ve surpassed another Hump Day and are on the downslide to the weekend! I’m thrilled to be back on the Clear Scraps blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I used the Slimline Acrylic Tab Album to create a mini collection of my favorite recipes – two each of Dessert, Meat, Veggie, Side and Soup/Stew. I have to say that the hardest part was picking out the few recipes that would fit in this album because I have a bunch of favorites lol!
I printed the recipes on 32# copy paper, and printed the 2″ square finished recipe images on glossy photo paper and cut them with a square die. I covered all the album pages with patterned papers from The Paper Studio Tattered and Worn 12 x 12 paper pad after removing the protective film on both sides of each tabbed page. I inked the edges of each page with walnut stain distress ink and then roughed them up with the Large Sanding Stick for an old worn-out vintage feel.
I stamped the page contents on each tab in brown ink using my stamp press, adhered the recipes to each page, and affixed foiled photo corners on the corners of each photo. I embellished the front and back covers and all the pages with Carta Bella and Echo Park patterned paper strips and stickers. I also used thick alphabet letters for the word ‘Recipes’ on the front cover, put the album together with binding rings, and added ribbon scraps to each ring to complete the album.
Here are close-up shots. Really loving how this turned out! Such a fun project!
