Recipe Folder


Happy Friday everyone...can you believe it's only 2 days 'til Christmas...yikes, where did the year go??!!  Christmas seems to be coming around faster and faster the older I get!

We have a new challenge for you at our Copic/Promarker group at The Outlawz. Our theme this week is FOOD, GLORIOUS FOOD :)  We all seem to be preoccupied with this subject at this time of the year LOL  By the end of the Christmas week we'll all be groaning and wondering how we fit all that food in!!  My DTeamies have created some amazing projects...hope you'll check them out and play along with us.

Only 2 challenges left to be in the draw for the awesome Pollycraft prize!!

This is a project I made a few years back for my BFF Helen. We saw the idea while on a scrapbook shop crawl, on one of my visits with her, so I came home and recreated it. The original cover had an image panel coloured with the ink pad & water brush technique (which BTW I'm HOPELESS at!!)...done waaaaaay before I found Copics and my colouring addiction. Every time I saw that panel post Copic colouring, I I decided to make a replacement :) The replacement panel is my project for our it is:

The images are from The Paper Shelter. I've grouped them together in my editing program, coloured with Copics then used dimensional glaze and glitter pens to highlight. The panel has then been matted onto SU Choc Chip and Old Olive to match the original panel colours.

The new look folder:

I've had to 'cheat' here and overlay one photo over the other as I don't have the folder...not perfect but it gives you the general idea :)

This is what the folder looked like when I made it:

Ummmm...I think the new panel might be a bit of an improvement lol

The folder laying out flat:

The flaps on either end overlap and have magnetic strips to hold them together...then the folder stands up like a desk calendar.

I made index pages from CS and laminated them. This is the inside...tabs for Starters, Mains, Desserts & Sweet Treats. The blank pages for the recipes are inside 8 x 8 page protectors so they can be wiped down if needed :)

Copic Colours for new panel:

Thanks for looking..........have a wonderful day :)

I love BOTH versions of my beautiful recipe binder Lynne! The first one is a special reminder of our "rediscovery" of stamping & the fun journey we have had together discovering the delights of papercraft all over again. (So while you may not be that fond of your original artwork, it is definitely staying in my box of treasures!) The second version is a glorious testament to your mastery with digi images & copic colouring! Both beautiful in their own right. Big Hugs :)
