Stamp Simply "Summer Recipes"

This week's Stamp Simply Challenge (ssnotime92) is to create a project or card using recipes. I decided to make a folder which will hold six recipes for my future daughter-in-law, Jennifer. I will fill it with our family's favorite appetizer, Salad, Main Dish, Soup, Pasta, and Cookie recipes.

I began with with a stiff piece of posterboard for the two covers. I cut the posterboard into 8" X 12" rectangles. I then found a piece of 12" decorator paper from my stash to cover the outside covers of the folder. I chose Kaiser Crafts Country Grove--Daisy Chain dp. My inside is covered with Stampin' Up Old Olive cardstock, as well as more of the Daisy Chain dp for the pockets.

My pockets for the recipe cards measure 2" X 6". I corner rounder punched the upper inner corners of the pockets, and only sticky taped the three other edges, so the recipes could slide in and out easily. I placed the pockets with a larger space at the bottom--perfect for larger or longer recipe cards.
I decorated my Family Favorites Recipe Holder with JustRite's new Recipe Set. What fun to play with! Check out the JR "Recipe Set" here. I punched the circles out with Stampin' Up's circle punches and taped them to decorate the pockets.
My recipe cards are printed on PaperTrey Ink's Vintage Cream cardstock, using this link for the free recipe card download.
The outside cover of my recipe folder is decorated with Spellbinder's Peony Nestabilities, as well as their Long Rectangle and Long Rectangle Scalloped dies. I stamped the title of my holder with JustRite's Brayton Font (my very favorite!), Versafine Sepia ink, and Stampin' Up's clear detail ep.
Some of the finishing details include SU Build a Brad, yummy ribbon, and a bit of sponging. I hope that Jennifer will enjoy the recipes that I add!
