Lots of Layers

Hi Bloggers

Its time for another challenge at Digi Choosday and the theme we have this week is

LOTS OF LAYERS

I am still trying to do other things than cards so decided this week to make a recipe folder for my daughter. She loves baking and has lots of recipe books but also lots of recipes on odd pieces of paper, so I thought a folder would be a good idea




I used the sweet Chef Girl digi from the Work & Play 7 Collection which is available as a CD or a Download here, and I used some papers from the Work & Play 6 Collection

I made the pages by cutting some 300gsm card to 7"x7" and sticking 2 pieces together for each page, then covered with plain papers in assorted colours. For each page I made a pocket from papers and a double sided recipe card by die cutting some lined sheets from a notebook and larger card pieces.
As well as using some Polka Doodles papers I used some sweet/candy themes papers and toppers that were a free gift with a magazine quite a while ago, and some flat back buttons shaped like cupcakes and cooking items.
I coloured the Chef Girl digi with Pro Markers and mounted her with foam pads onto the front cover of the folder along with a variety of different alpha's.
To finish the folder I used some 1.25" book rings and decorated them with assorted ribbon pieces, and a paper pieced cupcake covered with glossy accents.
I think my daughter will like this and she will be able to keep all her odd recipes all together in one place

Happy Crafting
