It's a New Year!

It's Monday!! That means it's Challenge day over at Paper Playtime :) It is a new year, which means there are new Queens and a King in the realm, along with all new challenges and exciting prizes to be had. Today we are sponsored by Peachy Keen Stamps, so our challenge is FACES! Use faces on your projects. Here is what I came up with:

This year I made a recipe book for my mum and sisters, with some of our favorite family recipes. This is the title page. The font is from Robotz (my go to chunky font), the other cuts are from Winter Wonderland, EDPD and From My Kitchen. I used stamps from PKS. Isn't it cute?

My next page feautures one of my Gran's cookie recipes. The gingerbread man is from Smiley Cards, the font, Don Juan and the shape is cut for Winter Wonderland.

The next, my favorite pickle recipe :) These are easy and delicious! The cucumber is from Just Because Cards cartridge, I think they look SO adorable with Peachy Keen stamp faces! The shape under the recipe is from Once Upon a Princess and the font is All Mixed Up.

My mum and sisters really liked their books, and honestly they are going to be a work in progress. I did 10 recipes for each of them, but I will continue making more over the next few months, and send it to them. they are also going to pick some of their favorite recipes, and I will for those recipes too.

I hope you all pop over to Paper Playtime and see what Team #1 has come up with to inspire you, and be sure to play along for your chance to win some Peachy Keen Stamps. Trust me, if you don't have some, you NEED them, and they have AMAZING customer service :)

A la prochaine...

This is a wonderful idea and it came out so cute! I did a recipe book for my mama and sister a few years ago - "pre-cricut" - and it's not nearly as adorable as this one you did! I love those pickle cuts! :) Janis
