This month I was able to add the Deluxe kit to the kits I receive so you will get a paper project as well as a digital layout. I'm so excited to be able to share what I do with the paper kit each month. So first up I'll show my digital layout.
Because of the era of the kit I turned my photos to black and white. Besides, what my kiddo's were wearing didn't match anyway. Everything comes from the kit except the flower, the eyelet, the brads and the bookplate. The flower, eyelet and brads are from my stash and the bookplate, which I recolored, is from Club Scrap's Geometrics kit. I put a bevel on the cherries to make them more dimensional. The cupcake I added a bevel and then added colors to the frosting and the cupcake paper. And of course I used a template to make the whole thing go together faster.

Next up is my main project. When I first saw the kit at the beginning of the month it screamed recipes to me. It did that for a lot of people since I saw a couple of posts on Club Scrap's blog with recipe related projects. I went ahead and did mine up anyway. It is going to be a gift for one of my girls. First up is a picture of the kit that I received. Lots of goodies.
I first cut a recipe box out using my Silhouette and glued it together. When you take the lid off, the front is cut down so that you can see the recipe cards.
I also cut out dividers for the box. I wrote by hand the names of the categories on the dividers. I didn't decorate these since I wanted to be able to get as many recipes as I could into the box.
I did up blank recipe cards using the stamp graphics that came with the digital kit. My daughters write teeny tiny so the lines being close together won't bother them.
I also printed up recipes and then stamped images on the cards. The box is full of recipes that are favorites of our family. My recipe program does a pretty good job printing the recipes on 4x6 cards.
This next picture is of the finished box. I inked up the cherry stamp and when it was dry covered it with glossy accents. The ribbon and tag are from the kit. The medallion I cut with my Silhouette.
I was on a roll, and had need of a birthday card so out of the scraps I made a card to give to my daughter-in-law. The washi tape was a fun accent to add.
Hope you enjoyed my projects as much as I had making them. Your next stop on the way is Kay!
