Cooking Up Fab Pages
Isn’t it fun to look through recipe books? Or look at the thousands and thousands of recipes on the internet? Or watch cooking shows on TV? I love the Pioneer Woman recipes, oh and then there’s Paula Dean and Rachael Ray. I could go on and on!
Creating layouts based on your favorite foods, recipes or special treats is fun and a great way to share memories with friends and family.
Let’s take a look at what these creative scrappers have whipped up.
I love the way that Marlyn and Christy have used their special recipes as part of their scrapbook pages! Sandy decided to make scrumptious Mimosa pops because Kaumkauts were on sale in her area – and then created a yummy looking page about the treat! I like the photos of the brightly colored frozen treats against the black background on her page.
Pasta Lover by Marlyn R. Ramirez
Digital Supplies: Digital Kits: Friendly Scrap, On My Kitchen 2: Rose Thorn, Cucina Italiana, Good Eats: DeDe Smith, Blue Flower Art: AFT, Sugary Fancy, Nuthouse Scraps, WordArt World: Jennifer, Font: ck Penman, Photo Action: Coffee Shop, Software: Photoshop CS2.
Design Note: To make the photos look better I used Coffee Shop's Vivid No Wait action.
Journaling: I love pasta and can eat it every day of the week. Many of its sauces can be pretty easy to make, which to an inexperienced cook like me is a boon. And because one pot is all I need to cook the pasta and its sauce, I am loving it more and more.
Cookies for Papa by Christy Bowersox
Digital Supplies: Tried and True Value Collection: Kim Liddiard, Dirty Paper Frames: Lauren Bavin (both from Digital Scrapbook Place).
Editor's Note: In addition to making the recipe ingredients part of her layout, Christy snapped a photo of her daughter preparing the dish – what a terrific idea! It personalizes the page perfectly!
Journaling: Making Cookies for My Papa.We don’t always have ideas about what to buy Papa for his birthday so for the past several years we have made him cookies. They are raisin cookies like my Grandma used to make. He says they taste just like hers. That makes me happy. This is Gracie helping make Papa’s cookies in November 2009.
Mimosa Pops by Sandy Ang
Supplies: Paper, Cardstock, Flowers, Border Stickers : Ruby Rock-It, Bling : Bella!, Font : Budmo Jiggler.
Design Note: I created pockets beneath the herringbone patterned paper to hold journaling tags.
Journaling: Kumquats on sale in January gave me the idea to make alcohol ice pops ! Really very quick and easy, the only challenge came when trying to remove it from the molds.
