Yummy Recipes in Digital

Collecting recipes from friends and family has always been fun. I like trying new things that can become standard fare at family events or even our own table. However, organizing them is always a trip. I have binders, recipe card holders, slips of paper, and online sites bookmarked. A great idea to organize them is to create a recipe scrapbook. However, once one person gets one others are sure to want one. What to do, What to do?

Use My Digital Studio!

This yummy recipe is great for summer. I used mostly the Strength and Hope Digital Kit, but I also added some ribbon and some brads. To great the rainbow strips, I created a photo box the size I wanted each layer, and then filled in the photo box with paper so that my digital paper didn't get distorted.

You could use this as one page in a digital book, or you can do what I did and print 4 to a page. To do that, design your project on 1/4 of a 12 x 12 page. I then used control A to select everything, I rightclicked to group it. I could then copy and paste it to all four corners of my page. I sent it off to the printer, and got back the swaps I needed for my Convention Recipe Swap! Here's a visual of all 4 on one page:


I just trimmed mine and put them into a 6x6 page protector. Some participants matted them on cardstock or added embellishments to make the pages a hybrid of digital and traditional scrapbooking!

Happy Stamping!
