Hello everyone! Jennifer here on the blog to share a little recipe book I created using the Acrylic 6x6 Tab Album (which is one of my all time favorites to create with).
The star of my front cover is the Mixer Chipboard Embellishment Shape! I began by painting the body of the mixer red, followed by black on the bowl. I then applied embossing ink and heat set my embossing powders in respective colors. Using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive, I affixed the Mixer to the front of my album. Any solvent based adhesive works best with Clear Scraps acrylic since it will not yellow or warp the acrylic over time.
For my inside pages, I cut 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inch pieces adding layers of additional patterns. Here, I used a 3x4 card to create an interactive flap to hide a tag for journaling or something that I may want to add at a later date.
I confess that I had the intention of layering my recipe cards in a horizontal fashion, but it didn't quite work out that way! So, as crafters do we improvise! I punched holes at the top of each card and inserted them as shown. That way I you can view the front and back of each.
Here, I used the Baking Chipboard Embellishment Shapes as the focal points of the page. I embellished them the same way I did the Mixer. Again, I adhered the chipboard using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive.
