Linda's Recipe Book - and a Giveaway!

My friend Linda, aka LGuild, made a recipe book and posted a few pictures on the Cricut Messageboard and was asked to post all the pictures. Linda doesn't have a blog and didn't want to take up MB space posting all the pictures so asked if I would post them on my blog *okie thinks Linda was just being lazy and wanted okie to take all the pictures and have to post them*. Of course I told her I would be more than glad to help her out *okie sometimes is not such an honest injun and might have lied a little about being glad about it*.

Linda came down for Stamp Club yesterday and we had some errands to run and then came back and took pictures of the pages. I think she did an excellent job on her book. Linda is not a scrapbooker, she is a card maker. So this was quite the stretch for her...matter of fact she said she had smoke coming out her head from trying to come up with ideas for all the pages *okie think the smoke was actually from Linda just using her brain and not stealing ideas from other people*.

Linda is also doing a giveaway of the items in the picture below. Just leave a comment on this post about her recipe book. She will do a random number draw on all comments left before July 7th at 11:00 pm. She is NOT giving away the recipe book it's self *okie already has dibs on it if Linda is gonna give it away*

Linda said "not every page has Cricut cuts on it but this was quite an undertaking for me since I make cards". She did use stickers, stamps and Cricut cuts. She also said "if someone asked me to make them one I would say 'YEAH RIGHT! Not in this life time'" *okie cracks up laughin*.

So without further ado here are the pictures!! Oh and remember you can click to make them bigger if you want to see more detail.

First three pages..the index is actually turned the other way, just turned it for picture taking.











Pages 4 and 5. Pages 6 and 7.











Pages 8 and 9. Pages 10 and 11.











Pages 12 and 13. Pages 14 and 15.











Pages 16 and 17. Pages 18 and 19











Pages 20 and 21. Pages 22 and 23.











Pages 24 and 25. Pages 26 and 27











Pages 28 and 29. Pages 30 and 31











Pages 32 and 33. Pages 34 and 35.











Pages 36 and 37. Page 38












Remember to leave your comment for a chance to win Linda's Giveaway!!

  10. This is a great recipe book! I've been "tempted" to make one with my family's favorite recipes that have been passed down. After seeing your cook book, I might just have to do this. :) Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love recipe scrapbooks. I started one a couple of years ago and only have about 5 pages done :( I've been to busy making cards. I need to get started on it again. This one looks amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Oh, it's absolutely wonderful! I love every page! I recently have finally gotten around to starting one. It is SO much work! I've really barely started, only made a few cuts and assembled, I know I'll be still working on it this time next year! lol. Big accomplishment here, and it looks so fabulous, you'll be able to proudly pass it on in your family for many generations to enjoy! I love it!

  26. Linda, My question is did you make this for yourself or someone very special? You did an excellent job! Scrapbooking is obviously in your blood. Now you need to branch out. I have many projects, even cards that are one of a kind and will never leave my craft room. Welcome to the other side. Now you will have twice as many creative outlets! Great job!!!!

    ReplyDelete

  46. Linda,
    The cookbook is really cute. You did an excellent job, thank you for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Thank you guys for all your nice comments! I agree that it was very nice of Okie to put these on her blog. It did take her quite some time to do the photos and get them uploaded but she did a good job on them. Now I know how she uses a "light box" to make the photos come out more clear and am going to try her method next time I post a photo on the MB.

    Bobbi- it took me a total of 6 days to get the pages done. Whew!

    hestiashelper- that recipe is delicious, IMHO hope you enjoy it

    Emily-scraplift away! I'm well known for scraplifting myself!

    goatesgirl--You HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING! LOL!

    Cathy-no, I made it for myself. These are recipes I use all the time and I wanted them all in one place.

    I'll pick a random winner for the RAK and Okie will post the winner here on Thursday, July 8th.

    I always love looking at your work.
    This is something I should do.

  153. I am going to make one like this. And put all my favs. in it. thanks so much for the inspiration. Cant wait to start. Maybe tomorrow.

  154. That was a lot of work! Here's an idea: scan the pages & print them out on your computer -- an easy way to share a copy without doing it all over again. It's always good to have a back up, in case of a cooking disaster! (I know, I've had plenty!)
