recipe book & card




I finally got to use my new Kitchen Classics stamp set by Crafty Secrets! I fell in love with this set when I saw it in Anna Wights store, Sweet and Sassy Crafts. I used my Basic Grey 6x6 paper pad, Scarlets Letter. I got the paper from Joy & Daisy at Eclectic Paperie. I thought the Basic Grey and Crafty Secrets made a perfect pair!
The detail on these vintage stamps is amazing. I look forward to using them a lot more!
I got the buttons from my mom's stash, I can always count on her and her stash for anything I might need. She has collected anything and everything for years. I used my linen thread to stitch the buttons and glued them on the spine of the book and card with E6000. The yummy May Arts ribbon is from StarLitStudio's store. I used my Colorbox chalk ink to stamp the images, it made them show up better than the classic ink. I used Lisa Zappa's blender pen and classic ink idea to do all the coloring. She gives a great toot on her blog! The first picture is the cover, the second is the inside and matching card. There are three pockets in this book, I covered each pocket with the paper and decorated. The tabs on the side are covered with paper, stamped and glued on. The card is hinged on the spine side and I used my slit punch for the closure on the right and glued a button on it.
