Hello Pebbles friends! Marcia here today. My kids are older and now living on their own. They all like to cook, just like their mother. So I often get phone calls or text messages from them asking me for their favorite recipes. For a gift, I thought it would be a fabulous idea to compile some of these recipes into a teapot shaped mini album. I used the gorgeous new This Is Family collection by Jen Hadfield.
The teapot cut file is available in the Silhouette store. It’s a Samantha Walker cut file if you are interested in making one too. The original cut file is for a shaped card. Altering it to make it into a mini was easy to do. I created a pretty cluster on the cover using a tag, some die cut ephemera pieces, and absolutely gorgeous rose gold puffy stickers.
The This Is Family collection includes a 12×12 sheet of pattern paper with 6 recipe cards. I cut these apart and grabbed some favorite recipes to transfer to them. Because I wrote on both sides of the recipe cards, I adhered them down using washi tape. This way they can be removed from the album to read the back side. Later they can also be placed in a recipe box is desired.
Isn’t that washi tape beautiful! My album is held together using two rings. To reinforce the holes in each page, I added a couple eyelets.
I kept the embellishments to a minimum on the inside pages. Houses were
fussy cut from pattern paper and then scattered throughout.
I also tucked in a few tags in places. It’s fun to include a few hidden messages on these.
The back cover was left blank.
Do you know anyone who would love this album? Go ahead and make one for yourself too! Have a great week.
