Especially sweet and popular are baked paper delights! I absolutely adore seeing layouts, recipe cards and books. Recording those special recipes from Aunt Karey or Big Granny is such a special way to preserve your precious family’s heirloom recipes.
Whether you are traditional, hybrid or digital, you can try your culinary hand at whipping up a scrumptious recipe book or layout! Don’t forget to include pictures of your recipes and your loved one who is famous for the heirloom recipe. This will be a treasured book that everyone can relish.
Tea & Scones by Kim Kendell
Supplies: Paper: Cosmo Cricket, Doily: BasicGrey, Chipboard: Thickers (American Crafts), Flowers: Prima Marketing, Heidi Swapp, Tags: Cosmo Cricket, Bling: Kaisercraft, Flourish With A Bling, Ink: Brilliance (Tsukineko), Specialty Ink: Glimmer Mist (Tattered Angels), Pens: Sharpie.
Design Notes: Using cut-up and layered journaling tags is a great way to form your base. I like to use my journaling pen to highlight the outside edges of elements, to make them bounce off the page! I also like to use ink on embossed flowers to heighten the detail.

Design Notes: I enjoy sketching all my details before beginning a project. Sketching allows me to organize my thoughts and also create my own elements such as the cupcake and titles in my Sure Cuts A Lot program. I also like using cereal boxes to make my own chipboard (Fruit Loops is my favorite!)

Digital Supplies: Kit: Freshly Baked Collab by Captivated Visions & Suzy Q Scraps (ScrapOrchard), Template: Joyful Heart By Busy Bee Designs collab with Joyce Paul (MScraps), Software: Adobe Photoshop CS3, Fonts: SNF Journaling.
Design Notes: I used lots of layering in this layout and used shadows to emphasize this. To get that blended photo look, simply reduce the opacity of your layer and erase around the outside of the picture with a very soft eraser.
Journaling: When you're cooking in the kitchen, You're learning all the while - To pour and measure, mix and stir, And sift flour into a pile. Scrub your hands before you start Then gather up the gear - Like pots'n pans and measuring cups That you use throughout the year. Go over the recipe, step-by-step, So you'll know just what to do. By carefully following the directions, It won't be hard for you. Besides the fun and learning, There's always cleaning up to do, And even though it's quite a chore, It's part of cooking too.
