Welcome to my blog:-) This weekend I am participating in My Cricut Craft Room's Recipe & Baking blog hop! If you're here because you are one of my super awesome loyal followers, then I'm going to redirect you to My Cricut Craft Room because I don't want you to miss out on all of this weekend's goodies:-) If you've come from Erica's blog then you are on the hop and on the right track!
My project for today is a recipe binder made using From My Kitchen cartridge. My BFF and I are always emailing recipes back and forth to each other that have been kid and hubby approved. I think both of our children were cut from the same mold - Picky! I got an idea for her Christmas gift this year (shhhhh!) to make a binder that she can print and store her recipes in. I purchased an inexpensive clear cover binder from Walmart (aka budget-concious crafters' store), some clear page protectors (keeps inkjet pages from getting "smudged"), and a ream of Georgia-Pacific white cardstock. For my color inspiration, I used some patterned card stock by American Crafts called Craft Fair. I purchased this awhile back from ScrapbookSteals.com. I made an 8 1/2 x 11 template on my Gypsy and started laying out all of my pages. I put some empty page protectors in between each section so my BFF can simply slip in a recipe she printed off her computer. After inserting these pics, I noticed that I took them before I put the tab dividers on each page. This way she can simply flip to whichever section she's interested in. I picked the tabs up at Walmart, also.
Thanks for checking out my project:-) Make sure you are a follower and then leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite Thanksgiving dish is. I'll be picking one lucky hopper to give this Preserves Cricut Cart to on Monday!
