mini album inspiration: recipe book
Looking for a great way to store all of your tried & true recipes? Mini Album to the rescue! Creative Team member Ashley Bennett shared her approach for putting together a beautiful album of her favorites using the Midnight Mini Album and Olive Edition of Project Life.
Growing up I loved to bake and cook with my Mom and Grandma. I would sift through their recipe boxes and see the recipes written in their own handwriting. It was neat to see their notes written in the margins of their cookbooks. It’s amazing to me what memories are brought to mind from reading a few simple ingredients.
I have a lot of cookbooks but seem to use the same few over and over. I also print out recipes from Pinterest, write them down on tiny scraps of paper and tuck them into whichever book is closest! When I saw Becky’s mini albums I knew I wanted to use them for my own recipe book to have a place to compile my very favorite recipes with a few photos.
To get started, I sorted through the cards and typed up a few of my go to recipes. I plan to have a small title card at the beginning of each category, followed by recipes printed or handwritten onto the Olive Edition cards. I love the versatility of the cards and the option I have to add details as the years go by. I am excited to have this ongoing project that I can work on occasionally when I feel inspired.
What sets this recipe book apart from all of my other cook books are the photos I’ve included that capture the memories of us, together in the kitchen.
