I created my cover by applying acrylic paint through The Crafter's Workshop ~ Chickenwire Reversed stencil onto Canvas Corp Brands ~ Canvas Portfolio.
I embellished my cover with a frame and a bloom adhered with Ranger's Multi Medium!
The base for my recipe book is Canvas Corp Brands 5 x 7 Tabbed Book ~ White. For Page 1, I covered the tabbed page with CCB ~ Farmhouse Kitchen Menu Cards. Cut to fit.
PLEASE DO NOT MAKE THE ERROR I DID ~ ADHERE BACKSIDE PAGES UPSIDE DOWN!!!! I applied cut to size papers to CCB Greeting Card Envelopes to create pockets for my recipe cards.
Canvas Corp Brands ~ Farmhouse Kitchen Baker Panel Cards fit just perfect on the tabbed pages.
REMEMBER ~ APPLY PAGE UPSIDE DOWN. For Page #4 I used CCB ~ Journal lines on Ivory for my background and left over's from other pages.
How cute is the Canvas Corp Brands Farmhouse ~ Kitchen Rabbit Panel Card. It also fits perfectly on the tabbed page.
REMINDER: APPLY THIS PAGE UPSIDE DOWN. The Farmhouse Kitchen Menu Cards require a bit of trimming to fit.
Another Canvas Corp Brands Farmhouse Kitchen Baker Panel Card adhered to the tabbed page. A great place to personalize the recipe book.
REMINDER: APPLY THIS PAGE UPSIDE DOWN. This time I used one of the Farmhouse Kitchen File Folders and a bit of Journal Lines on Ivory paper.
The last page slides into the pocket of the Canvas Corp Brands ~ Canvas Portfolio, so I chose to keep it simple.
For the "pocket" pages, I applied Ranger's Multi Medium to the tabbed page and placed the Greeting Card Envelop over adhesive. I used a rag to smooth out the envelop.
I then placed a large heavy book on top of the page. While drying I put my "paper pages" together, also placing a large book on top of them. When dry, I adhered the two together.
I once again placed the tabbed page under the heavy book. PLEASE REMEMBER to adhere the "backside" pages UPSIDE DOWN so you don't have to tear your completed book apart as I did.
