Clear Scraps Scallop Slimline Album--Valentine Love Home Decor
Pretty in Plaid Valentine Coffee Card

Vintage Recipe Album

Hi everybody! Leslie here, sharing a fun vintage recipe album featuring our Slimline Acrylic Tab Album! This mini collection of my favorite recipes has two each of Dessert, Meat, Veggie, Side and Soup/Stew. I have to say that the hardest part was narrowing down my favorites since I have so many, lol!

I printed the recipes on 32# copy paper, and printed the 2" square finished recipe images on glossy photo paper and cut them with a square die. I covered all the album pages with patterned papers after removing the protective film on both sides of each tabbed page. I inked the edges of each page and then roughed them up with the Large Sanding Stick for an old worn-out vintage feel.

I stamped the page contents on each tab in brown ink, adhered the recipes to each page, and affixed foiled photo corners on the corners of each photo. I embellished the front and back covers and all the pages with patterned paper strips and stickers, and also used thick alphabet letters for the word 'Recipes' on the front cover. I put the album together with binding rings and added ribbon scraps to each ring to complete the album.

Here are close-up shots. This was an easy project that would make a great birthday or anniversary gift, or maybe a gift for newlyweds!
