Melissa Frances Kitschy Recipe Album

I attended the Pleasanton Scrapbook Expo a couple weeks ago and was able to attend this great class given by the Melissa Frances group. Everything was supplied to complete this project (don't you love that?) but I never finish my project at class, I finish it at home. Here's the front chipboard cover. Project finished size is 6" x 6-1/2" x 1-1/2". The 1st page was cool: the scalloped edge Kraft envelope has a tag. I added the Baker's twine to the envelope. The page has a ruffled pattern paper with a sponged edge..........Ranger's Distressed Burlap Ink is used throughout this project on all the pages and stickers. A paper doily sponged with Ranger's distressed Burlap Ink is incorporated on to this page along with added Baler's twine: Another ruffled pattern paper on this tabbed section: More fun embellishments: added Baker's twine and a waxed cupcake liner (sponged with ranger's Distress Burlap ink) Here's another fun scalloped Kraft envelope with a tag and Baker's twine. The sponged doily is peeking out of the edge The last tabbed section: a vertical ruffled pattern paper as embellishment:

There are a variety of recipe cards (6 different designs) behind each decorated tab section as follows. There were a whole bundle of recipe cards in the set which I believe,is sold separately.

This was such a cute project and not difficult to complete.

Hope you enjoyed this.........................
