She has a very eclectic style and absolutely loved decorating her apartment. It's all bright colors, inspired by India fabrics and lanterns, she even covered a wall of her bedroom with violet lace and it looks incredible. So, needless to say that was my theme for her book. It may not hold up in the kitchen that well but she will have the family recipes and it will match her style, I hope!
The book is made with a chipboard front and back cover, natural corrugated paper as the dividers, all covered in DCWV Taj Mahal pattern paper. All the embellishments were random things from my stash that reminded me of her, some I had kept or collected thinking of her, so it was a perfect fit!
I used standard recipe cards that fit the colors of the rest of the book. The dividers tabs were chipboard titles with alpha buttons to mark the section of the book.
I added more bright colored papers to the backside of the corrugated paper, to match all the other color about in the piece and ran a colorful wide marker along the edges of the dividers to brighten up those as well.
This close up of some of the embellishments shows the beautiful pattern paper with elephants and camels parading as well.
Well that's it, on to the next Christmas gift on the list...
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend. I hope it isn't spent inside a mall all day looking for gifts, fighting over parking stalls or shoveling snow.
Enjoy the season and be safe and happy!
