Guest Post for Exploring Circut - Mini Recipe Book

Good Morning and Happy Monday everyone.  I hope you have had a fabulous weekend.  Today I am so excited to be guest posting over at Exploring Cricut.  They really have a fantastic blog with so many inspirational projects using the Cricut.  I hope you will stop over and check out the fun.

Today I am sharing a mini recipe book I plan to give as a Christmas/Teachers gift to my daughters' preschool teachers.  Every year I make all the teachers a breakfast as the Christmas gifts.  I have been asked several times for some of the recipes so I thought this year I would make them a mini recipe book to go along with the breakfast.  This way I don't fall behind on emailing them out (which is what usually happens).  So here it is:

Book Recipe:
  • Outside covers printed from Mr Frosty Imagine Cartridge and cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/4"
  • Inside recipe pages printed from Kate's Kitchen Imagine Cartridge and cut at 4" x 5 1/2"
  • Recipe label printed from Kate's Kitchen and cut at 1" x 3 7/8"
  • Sentiment tag cut from Craft Room Basics at 1" x 2 1/2"
  • Oven Mitts printed from Kate's Kitchen and cut at 2"
  • Stamped sentiment from Michaels Recollections Christmas collection
  • Stamp Ink is Quick Quotes Chalking Ink in Maraschino Cherry
  • Corner chomper to round all the edges
  • Inked all edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink
  • Used 1/8" eyelets and the Crop-a-dile 
  • Red and white bakers twine to bind the mini book
  • Ribbon on cover from Celebrate It at Michaels
Well that is it.  I hope you have enjoyed and are not to shocked that I have already thought ahead to Christmas.  I still haven't started our Christmas cards yet, but did you really expect me to get started in July like I said that I would???  Don't forget to stop by the Exploring Cricut blog.  Thanks so much Diane for the opportunity to be a guest blogger today!!
