I Made A Recipe Box




















First of all I would like to thank all of you that encouraged me to go on my first workshop, I loved it!  It was at Lili Of The valley and it was with the lovely and talented Dawny P.  I felt so at ease, thank you Dawny.
All the ladies were great too.  I spoilt myself too with stamps and Nitwit paper pads.

So now on to my make, I made this recipe box, it's so versatile as you could use it for 6"x6" cards, or stationery, the possibilities are endless as it's such a good size.  And I have to say it's so sturdy made with 360gsm Kraft card, and reinforced too, the amount of work Dawny must have done to get these kits ready, she did a brilliant job.  The image which is obviously LOTV called "Mix It & Make It", was stamped but I coloured it at home, and of course had to buy the stamp too, the beautiful papers are also from LOTV by Nitwits called Country Lady, which I also had to buy.

Here's an inside view:-
















And now for a better look at the divider cards:-














I love what I made and intend on making more definitely, my Sister is already wanting one to put all her slimming world recipes in.

I really had a fantastic day and my bad back held out all the way through, as though someone was watching over me and making sure I got through the workshop without it seizing up.

I will be back here tomorrow with Design team creations for Stamping Sensations, Penny Black @ Allsorts and Joanna sheen, yep a busy post tomorrow.

Thank you for popping by and looking.
Happy crafting

I am so pleased to hear you enjoyed it Tracy, although not for a moment did I think otherwise but I know how you felt especially with a bad back.

And the recipe folder looks so pretty, Nitwits DP's are lovely and I had no idea you could get them in pads, I'v e only had A4 sheets.
