Recipe Somethings - Challenge


Wouldn't you know that the Stamp Something blog had the perfect recipe challenge for me on Friday? The challenge is to make a project all about recipes. My mom has been asking me to make her something to keep all her recipes together. I can remember being a child and my mom always had a drawer in the kitchen full of cut out recipes from magazines. I think I was about 7 when I first remember, and here is it 23 years later and do you know she still has that same drawer with all the recipes? lol So now it's time to get all those recipes on recipe cards so she can be more organized. I can't wait for her to get her box of goodies. I know she doesn't read my blog cause she's not all that computer saavy and so I can say what's in her box. She's going to probably cry when she looks at the box. On the inside of the lid I've handwritten her a note something to personalize it from me. I can't wait to hear from her when she receives it. I had a lof of fun with this challenge. A few months ago I ordered the egg boxes from Papertrey Ink when Nicole first introduced them along with the recipe cards. They are something amazing! I'm going to order some more and give them as birthday gifts to those friends of mine that I know love to collect and use recipes. I used the Recipe Box stamp set by Papertrey Ink too. The dp paper is by Making Memories in the Noteworthy collection called Hillary Lace Flower. This is some YUMMY paper! I'm off to finish a few more challenges I wanted to finish before the weekend is up. I hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday! Our Saturday is almost over....

I forgot to write that I used modge podge all over the paper so that if she gets it dirty she can wipe it clean with a damp cloth.

Felicia, the colors have such a pretty vintage and classic feel to it. What a great project for your mom! I have fond memories of scattered recipes as well...I think she still has that same organization all these years later. Thanks for sharing a creative and great idea. :D
