Hero Arts Food Challenge

This month's challenge at Hero Arts is Food, Travel and Book Making. I decided to combine the book making and Food challenge into making a tag book for recipes.  I have to admit I was very inspired to create a tag book after seeing some beautiful inspiration here and here.  Although their books were assembled much differently it gave me the thought of taking the tags into a book format.

Here is a picture of my recipe book assembled.


I put the tags back to back so I have 3 pages but 5 pages with pockets for recipe cards.








This is a good reminder of why I don't scrap layouts... Lots of time spent trying to coordinate papers, images and colors. :) Lot of work for 3 pages. And they aren't even 12 x 12's and don't have the usual detail I like to add.


The images are all stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black or Rich Cocoa to allow me to use my Copics. :)
I used a variety of papers from October Afternoon (Fly a Kite, Farm Fresh) and Cosmo Cricket (Garden Variety).

The stamps are all from Hero Arts (CL440 - Kiss the Cook, Cl320 Sparkle Clear - Designer Fruit, CL345 - What's the Scoop).

Love the papers they remind me of my Grandma's kitchens, aprons etc. 

Hope you are having a fun Sunday!

  8. So adorable... What a great idea.
    I know what you mean, I used to scrapbook and it does seem a little easier to make cards.. Although I still scrap a little.

    Hope you have a great evening!
