Class project: Cosmo Cricket recipe album

I'm a sucker for most anything with a vintage/retro feel, so when I saw Cosmo Cricket's new Early Bird line, I was hooked. This line has several gorgeous papers that look like they were taken directly from a 1950's linen kitchen towel or apron. The chipboard is equally enchanting and even includes an adorable smiling toaster. As you can see, this line is perfect for a recipe book!

My recipe book is 8x8 with 20 pages. I used an SEI Preservation Series album, so it's easy to add pages to accommodate more recipes. I picked out some retro fonts for the divider pages and quotes (Easter Basket, Featured Item, and Rickles), available for free at Tack-o-Rama and Font Diner, two of my favorite retro font sites.

This class will be scheduled at Memory Bound in August and possibly again later in the fall. It promises to be a great time, as always!
