Cookie Recipes

Hello! Today I'm sharing my second project for the new Waltzingmouse Stamps December release using the fabulous new Little Box Labels.

I don't know about you, but when I think of Christmas, one thing that springs immediately to mind is cookies! We all have our favorite Christmas cookie recipes... you know, Grandma's Snowballs or Mom's Pecan Tassies - this little recipe book is the perfect place to keep track of all of those!

I stamped the Label image in Riding Hood Red, trimmed it out, and matted it with a die cut from the Labels Eight Nestabilities. This image also coordinates beautifully with the Labels Five Nestabilities from Spellbinders - Claire is one smart cookie! ;) I used two of the sentiments from Little Box Labels to create my title (these are separate words). The gingerbread man, holly, and candy cane images are from the Oven Fresh Gingerbread Joy set. The background is stamped with the herringbone pattern stamp in Pink Pirouette (this is one of my favorite color combinations).

I used my Bind-It-All to put the recipe book together. This is very easy and rather inexpensive (if you're keeping track of gift ideas!). I use index cards for my inside pages, so there's no need for trimming or anything. I get lots of comments about the insides of my recipe books so I have included a photo.

Nothing fancy, but perfect for keeping track of those important cookie recipes!

I'm glad you stopped by today, hop on over to Bonnie's blog where she is sharing another project using the Little Box Labels set. Bonnie and I were on the same wavelength today - you know what they say about great minds! ;)

Have a great day everyone!
