Cookie Recipes

Hi everyone! How was your weekend? Did you celebrate WCMD?

Today I would like to share the project that I made for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge (just getting it in under the buzzer!)

Here is the sketch:

And here is my project:

This is a little recipe book for your holiday cookies! The outside dimensions are just slightly larger than a standard index card, which is what I used for the inner pages.

The plaid background pattern was made using Off Beat Backgrounds. The stripes were stamped in Riding Hood Red and Close to Cocoa ink. The next layer is customized patterned paper, made using some of the smaller images from the Oven Fresh Gingerbread Joy stamp set.

I punched the border and stitched it and the patterned paper right to the cover. I added the sticker alpha and some of the little gingers from the set. These guys are such cuties! I used my Bind-it-All to put it together, and you have an easy, cute place to keep all your holiday treat recipes! The first recipe I am going to put in here is Melissa Philips' recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies. I have made these twice and they are fantastic!

Thanks for stopping by today. I have lots more to share, so I hope you will stop back soon!
