NEW: Everyday Heritage - My Cook Book

Cooking and health are a growing passion of mine, which has often been fueled by memories of working with Grandma Hopkins in her kitchen and lately by reading books she left that all include little notes in her handwriting and underlining and crossing out things sometimes too!  This year I have begun to make plans for creating a family cookbook. And so the seeds were also sown to create my new kit Everyday Heritage - My Cook Book.

The kit is quite large, so that you can make a variety of pages or a whole book. If you have my Country Kitchen kit, some of the elements and papers may mix and match.  Here is the store description for the kit:
The foods we eat and how and who we enjoy them with, are a part of our heritage, both past and in the present.  This 2nd edition of my every day heritage series is designed to help you create a whole cookbook project or just a page or a 4x6 recipe to share.  Included are 3x4 and 4x6 cards to use with the pocket page scrapbook style in either digital or hybrid.  Bon Appetite!

24 12x12 300dpi Background papers including:

Some of the elements.
I tried to include as many ways as possible for you to write down recipes, so that there would be variety if you were making a book. Also included are 3x4 and 4x6 cards for those who are doing pocket style scrapbooking.

I tried to keep the paper selection somewhat neutral with a few bolder prints for accents. This way the eye can focus on the recipes and the photos. They have a slightly vintage country feel to them.  Included are five pieces of cardstock as well.

Frames are included for creating regular scrapbook pages or for your food photos. And there are plenty of labels!  Plain versions are included in case you want to add your own.  There are titles and category titles as well.  All these come in two different colors to allow more creative freedom in your cook book! 
I hope you enjoy! Whether you use my kit or someone else's, I highly recommend creating a family cookbook.  Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
