Recipe Mini Album

I have had 2 nephews get married since May.  Being the cook that I am, I got to thinking that as young adults who may or may not know how to cook, it might be nice to collect some family recipes and make a cookbook for them.  I looked on youtube...my go to place, and found some ideas I wanted to use.  I actually combined several different youtube videos to make the recipe book and I have completed the first recipe book...still working on writing down all of the recipes.  I had trouble finding a paper pack with a food theme, so all of the images I used are digital.  The majority of the graphics are from The Graphics Fairy, the recipe cards are from several websites, I will list them under their picture.  Pictures of the book I made follows with a link to the videos I used to come up with it.  It is definitely their videos that made this book possible, so I want to make sure to give the credit where it is due!! 

The cover of the book is chipboard covered with paper from The Paper Studio.  The Tulip paper is from Ephemeras Vintage Garden .

The base pages for this recipe book are purple and yellow cardstock.


This Cheat Sheet was something I found on facebook and made a copy of.


I really like this Tea Jar, and one of the videos I found really did some interactive pieces, so that is what I did with this graphic.


I cut the top off and added a piece of vintage paper that I found on Ephemeras Vintage Garden.




This retro image is from Free Vintage Digital Stamps


 



This adorable paper is from Tsunami Rose Designs, Daisy makes some BEAUTIFUL digital papers and journal sets.

The base paper on the page to the left is also from
Tsunami Rose Designs with the brown medallion from The Graphics Fairy.


I actually designed the background paper for this page and the Farm Butter Label is from  Raven's Nest Freebies.

You can really see the difference between the first picture and this one...it really looks bare when the recipe cards are not in it.





These pages have images from The Graphics Fairy.


The Recipe card used below for the inside of the book image is from Free Printable Recipe Cards.


The next images with butterflies are from Ephemera's Vintage Garden.

The youtube videos that were my inspiration are as follows:

 I saw this video and just fell in love with her Recipe Book, so I viewed some of her other videos and found a design I really liked on her Pocket Mini Album, but she did not have any directions on how to make it, so I started browsing and found this video with easy directions:

After watching this video, I of course browsed through her other videos since I found her instructions so easy to follow.  I found some comments under one of her videos that led me to Elsa Justafew and her videos on this same type of pocket page with variations.  Elsa and Krystal did a series of videos working with this pocket page and here is the first of that series:
