I have been chomping at the bit to show you all my project!  I was waiting for all the winners to be announced before I posted my Project! 
 

Sadly....I am not one of them but I am very excited to be able to share my project with you all!  My hope is that some of you give this project a try and Scrap some of your family recipes!  Please email me with your photos of the finished project!


The Font of the Book while closed.


The Front of the Book while slightly open so see all the layers.


A Photo of the book opened to a Beef Recipe from a Swap I did.


The Book Opened to a Chicken Recipe from a Swap I did.


The Book Opened up so you can see both the Front and the Back of the Book at the same time.

This project uses the Cricut Design Studio, the Cricut Expression, Plantin Schoolbook, Paper Doll Dress Up, Everyday Paper Dolls, From My Kitchen and Animal Kingdom.  I used the 12x24 Cricut Mats and lots and lots and lots of Cardstock!  You can download complete instructions and the .cut file but please only use this for your personal use only.  Please do not teach a class or sell these books without prior permission.

  28. I am trying to download the cut file for the recipe book. It shows that it downloaded and when I go to ds I cannot find it. I have never downloaded a cut file b4 so I may have done it all wrong. Can you help me? I also saw a post on a homemade cart storage organization.Not sure if it was you. I would love a solution if you have one. Thanks Kat

  35. I am going to download the instructions. I only have a Gypsy and not DS so I can't use your cut file. I am going to get DS as soon as they make their big changes to it.
