I just love that there are some really beautiful inserts and designs to create a beautiful Recipes Collection book with Misc. Me! My oldest daughter Chloe has become quite the little chef, she is almost daily experimenting with cooking and baking. So I thought it would be a nice thing to make her up a special recipe book to keep all her recipes in. Once I was done putting the book together (most of it blank for her to work in her choices), I thought I would pop in a few recipes she's tried and add a few photos of her and her sister, baking and cooking over the years. Just a little something to get her started.
The above photo was taken when Chloe and Meagan went to my sisters house to make Sprinkle cookies, one of their first baking adventures. The recipe on the right is my dear husbands favourite salad that he's always asking Chloe to make for him.
Chloe and I made these Bass fillet's breaded in Japanese Panko (bread crumbs), I thought it would be fun to show the photo of Chloe holding the fresh Bass fish she and her dad caught on a fishing trip they took (the fish in the photo are the fish she caught).
A fun trend in scrapbooking lately is to use feathers to embellish pages. I wanted to use some natural elements to decorate with so I thought it would be nice to use feathers to accent the page.
Designer Tip: I thought it would be fun to try a fun little design trick on these feathers. I've been seeing curled feathers lately online, but couldn't seem to find any in stores. So I decided to try curling them myself. Have you ever tried curling ribbons with the edge of a scissor or the dull side of a butter knife? You do this the same way! Just loosen the strands by running your fingers down along the stem. Then just using the dull edge of a butter knife, start at the base of the strand and run it along the strand (between the knife edge and your thumb). Easy Peasy!
When I gave my daughter this book, she was so delighted to have a book she can easily keep adding her recipes to. One of her favourite things about the inserts was the conversion table insert that comes with the recipe cards.
