Heritage Cookbook Album

September 27, 2008

I was asked to come up with a few projects for my ward’s “Super Saturday” coming up in October (I’ll share the others later), and one of the projects was a “Heritage Cookbook”. I must make a confession here: I am not a scrapbooker. For many years I secretly longed to be…but just couldn’t find the time or space to dig in and do it. When digital products started to really hit the scene, I jumped on them…I like that I don’t have to find storage space or put everything away when I’m finished with a project. Even so, I’ve not yet spent much time playing with them, much less started in on real albums. So, here was a new opportunity for me. I was a bit overwhelmed…where to start? I enlisted the help of a talented lady in my ward and dug in using the French Countryside digi-kit from Shabby Princess along with ribbons and buttons from my stash.

I approached my 8×8 album as a record of my family’s favorite recipes…one favorite for each member, including grandparents. I’d love to expand it with pictures and recipes from great-grandparents…I need to get that done before they’re all gone. So, without further adieu, here it is, my first real album (sorry the pictures aren’t perfect, but you can still read most of our favorite recipes if you view the larger images!):

    So cool! I started one of these this summer and haven’t finished it yet. My sister got all of my family to send her our favorite recipes and then she emailed them to all of us. I just need to get it together and get them put in the book. So proud of you that you got yours done!
