The Perfect Mix
Here is an idea which might be useful to some of you who love to cook but also love Project Life. My granddaughter Elyssa loves to cook and is really keen to create her own recipe book. She has made up a folder and puts in recipes that she might like to try – I might add at this stage it only has two sections, Desserts and Dinners. Desserts fills the book with about 3 dinner options! I guess I know what her priorities are.
Anyway last year we spent a day creating some Donut Muffins which were a big hit with everyone. At the time I took a photo of her with her muffins to show to her Mum. Since she loves to cook and is always asking her Mum to let her make something, I decided that once she has created a recipe and finds that she likes it and will make it again, that her Mum or I will take a picture and add the recipe to her 6 x 8″ Project Life Recipe Book. So I was very excited when I saw the Perfect Mix stamp set in the Occasions Catalogue and had to get it in my pre-order. I created the “Ingredient” and “Method” cards in MDS, once printed I added the stamped images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured using the soon to be released Watercolour Pencils. Doesn’t she look happy with herself? I love to see my grandchildren with smiles on their faces, especially when they have achieved something special.
The recipe pages will work perfectly with this particular pocket option and the other option that has the 4″ x 6″ pocket at the top and the two 3″ x 4″ pockets at the bottom of the page.
Well, what do you think? This is just another way that Project Life can help you in your every day life. I don’t know about you but I have a collection of recipes that I have had for many years, which I use constantly. I hope that this becomes Elyssa’s most used recipe book.
Bye for now,
