Generous Giveaway!

Hurray! I finally have a pretty recipe file like I've always wanted!
It was a lot of fun to make and the Poppy Collection is so great. I love it!!



I used these cute tabs to mark my favorite recipes.


Rubber stamps are one of my favorite things. You can beautify
any plain paper in seconds with these stamps
from the Windsor Collection!



This picture is from a recipe card that I picked up from Target.



I love how these die-cut accents aren't your ordinary recipe cards.
They're perfect for short recipes and guaranteed to make you
happy every time you pull one out!


Since my box was so big, I thought that another good way to fill it up would be to make recipe cards out of photos. Then while you're cooking, you can be reminiscing at the same time!


I made my box, but there are plenty of boxes out there that would work great for this project. My cards are approximately 3"x5" and the cards that separate them in to categories are .25" taller. I haven't labeled my dividers yet, but you can label them main dish, desserts, etc.

I liked using the Poppy 6"x6" Paper Pad for my cards because the backs are blank. This makes it easy to read the recipes. If you want to print your recipes on the back, I suggest you do it before you cut them. You can do it when they're small, but it can be tricky if you have a stubborn printer.

I love to see all of the pretty patterns, but I need to know what recipe is written on the back. To solve this problem, I made these mini labels. If you would like to use them too, you can download them FREE here.

Just print them on sticker paper, cut them out and you're ready to go!

Here are some cards I designed just for all of you. You can download them for FREE here!
I hope you enjoyed! Have a great day and good luck!

Everything's so creative it's hard to pick a favorite, but if I had to it'd be the recipe cards... I love cooking.

The recipe box - I am a FOODS I/II teacher so anything with foods, recipes, kitchens is right up my alley.

karahoward said...

My favorite picture is the one with you and your baby's feet. Just darling. I need to try and take more pictures like that. I love the recipe box! Any excuse to get to paper craft something is WONDERFUL!!

Sue said...

I have to say that I found the recipe box post very inspirational. Over the past few years I have lost my grandmas and other special people in my life. The recipe box is a great way to share their famous recipes along with a picture for future generations to enjoy.

Rmcilvenna said...

I love the idea of using a photo for the recipe card. I have my grandma's recipe box but all photos of her are put away. What a beautiful and practical way to honor someone.

Meagan said...

I love the recipe box. It is adorable!

Expressions of a Creative Mind said...

I like the whole idea of it. I really like the Poppy paper the best though

jackie said...

i love the idea of using photos to accompany the recipes. i like to keep pictures of loved ones around in unexpected places (my jewelry box, sock drawer, etc) so that i can smile when i come across them. the recipe box would be a lovely addition to this tradition. thanks for all the great ideas!

angela hardison said...

I'm a fan of everything Lisa does, but I especially love the project with baby photos / photos of the outfits... such a sweet idea that I will definitely put to use someday :)

And obviously I want the recipe kit!

mom said...

I love the idea of pictures on the recipe cards. That way you can give credit to the person and remember them every time you see their picture. What a great idea!
Thanks

Kélé said...

I really like the recipe box, it is too cute. I've been wanting to make one of those for awhile now so it was great inspiration!

Bridgette said...

I've never seen such a beautiful and fun recipe box! It's sure to make me smile. I would never have thought to use die cuts as recipe cards.
