Recipe Album

This is the 5 x 7 chipboard binder by Maya Road.  I took out all the original inserts and used a thinner chipboard for the inserts I made.  (I'm saving the original pages for a different project).  All the papers I used are from the Domestic Goddess line of Graphic 45 Papers.  I purchased all my supplies from here.  (Bonnie is a very neat lady, so if you live or visiting the Atlanta area, go see her and her store - very fun!)  I used my Binderie Punch by 7 Gypsies to punch the holes in my chipboard.

For the cover, I cut out the image and the small alphabet circles from the cover page of the Graphic 45 pad of paper.  The larger alphabets are punch outs included in the paper pad.  I used Glossy Accents on these letters to make them stand out more. 

"From My Kitchen" cartridge and my Cricut machine was used to create all of my categories for the recipe cards.  I'll come back and add actual recipes and photos to each section.

I used a total of six different categories, although the cartridge gives you lots to choose from.  I think this would be a great bridal shower gift for the bride with some of her future husband's favorite recipes or her favorites.  It would also be a fun housewarming gift for your child's first apartment (maybe with some of the ingredients to make that special dish.
