Anne gives some great details about this wonderful project on the video tour she provided. She even provides some instructions on how to create this beautiful cover!
"I cut out 5 x 3 on the front and build a shadow box inside using the cut out and 3/4 chipboard stripes.
I used my crop a dile to make the hole for the seam binding and attach the hey hole over. Love the new shabby chic metal staples.
Here's the Recipe book inside.
I used seam binding inside to easily pull the book out.
The window and Pediments die is from Tim Holtz.
The inside of the cover of the recipe book.Fastened with magnets. I used a clip to hold some notes.
8 pages cut at 8 x 4 and scored at 4 inch. Then fastened with hair clips so they easy can be taken out. There you can keep a photo of the cake and write a recipe on the other and then laminat it so it won't be dirty when it is in use.
Here there is place for a lot of recipes :-)
There's an envelope on the right side for notes. Fastened with magnets.
Pocket behind the envelope. Border made with Martha Stewart doily punch.

Susan Lui created this great tutorial of An ABC Primer (a retired collection) mini mini album using just ONE 12x12 sheet of paper that we grabbed from the G45 Vault! Genius! Even though An ABC Primer is retired, our new collections Typography, Mother Goose, or Good ol' Sport would be a great substitute collection to use!
