Christmas Recipe Booklet....

I was so excited about the challenge over at Magnolia Down Under! It was to create anything but a card! I do alot of baking at Christmas and have always wanted to put together a little
recipe like booklet, that would hold just my recipes, that I use at Christmas. This way they are all together. I think I may make one for Summer recipes... you know your strawberry jams, your summer docktails (drinks that are made just for the cottage dock).
I am just loving my Justrite stamp set. I find it really makes it to what you want! One thing I have not used is my binding machine. I actually thought it looked to complicated to figure out, so I kept putting it off. Well...I finally figured it out this morning and that is how I made the recipe booklet. It was actually very easy!

  6. Christine, this is an excellent idea. I make the same Christmas cookies because they are my families' favorites year after year, and it is ideal to have them all in one place. Love how you did the cover and Tilda is done so beautifully. Thanks for joining the MDU challenge again this week. Hope to see you back again next time, love to see what your take on the challenge is.

  27. Christine, what a fabulous project. Your creations are always so beautifully done and this one is no exception. I don't think I've seen this Tilda before...hmmm. She's wonderfully coloured. I've seen your use of the Justrite stamp on your other cards. I finally know what you're talking about--they've just introduce it at my local scrapbook store. It's on my wish list now.

    Hugs.
