Christmas Cookie Recipe Album

One of my clubs is hosting a Christmas Cookie exchange next month! I LOVE cookies! I love FOOD!! Anyway - everyone is to prepare a 6x6 layout including their recipe. I decided to use our My Creations Display album to store the recipes in. Then I decided to add on our Festive Memories Christmas Card Kit and tweek it a little! These gorgeous photo cards come with beautiful coordinating adhesive artwork (stickease) along with red and green sparkles to glam it up a bit! Using our 4x6 Flip Flaps, I cut the 5x7 cards down to just a 4x6 frame and slid it into the flip flap. Then decorated the outside of the flip flap. I plan on putting a photo of the person in the front frame, the cookie ingredients on the inside flap and the cooking instructions on the base page! I can't wait to sample all the cookies and get photos of each of them to include with their recipes!

I used Liquid Applique and Prisma Glitter on the "cookie" to make it look like frosting!

There are 12 pages - Here is a sampling:

With the left over, cut off part of the cards, I was able to make eleven 3 1/2" x 5" cards, and use up the leftover stickease and sparkles too! You can use them for place settings, Thank you cards, gift tags or Christmas Cards! Here are just a couple -

So cute!! I'm offering this as another one of my kits available to anyone by mail or attending one of my upcoming crops! The kit, which will make a 12 page album and 11 cards, is $35 and includes:

My Creations Display Album
Festive Memories Card Kit
12 - 4x6 Flip Flaps
Cardstock and B&T paper to create the 12 base pages
Cardstock to cover the inside front and back
Paper, Ribbon & Accessories to create the cover as shown

This would also make a wonderful gift for family or friends filled with your favorite Christmas Recipes, Cookie Recipes, Family Favorite Recipes, or a collection of recipes from any group (neighbors, bible study, clubs, family, etc.).

For those who want to create coordinating names or titles on the inside, I used the Jasmine Cricut cartridge with the shadow - 2" size. I'm off to try out some cookie recipes!! :o)
