There may come a time when you’ve run out of family photos to scrap (gasp!). Or perhaps you’re looking for a special project, maybe even a gift album. Regardless if you’re on the lookout for new ideas or simply devoted to digital scrapbooking, this is an idea everyone should explore.
Personal recipe albums are often full of handwritten and tattered 3×5 cards and perhaps a mismatch of recipes torn from magazines. While there is a certain charm and nostalgia to this personal touch, we digi gals know a few secrets that can take these special memories to a new level. Enter recipe scrapping.
Dress up those plain lined cards with the same papers, embellishment and design skills you use with your normal layouts. Recipe scrapping is particularly fun if you’re been itching to try your hand at 8.5×11 pages or even 4×6 brag books. It is also a perfect entry into hybrid scrapping.
A few tips:
- Don’t feel you have to use food-related kits
- Choose tried and true recipes
- Complement your recipe with a photo
