For Christmas I got this blank journal from Anthropologie. I was so excited. I have been wanting a blank book to turn into a recipe book for a while now. Also, Anthropologie is my all time favorite store. I immediately began creating my recipe book.
Here are the tabs I made for it. I used the letter stamps and olive green ink pad I got from my mom, too. I even made Alec drive me to the store so I could buy a gel ink pen to use for this.
I got this "handmade by yours truly" stamp from my mom, too. This is basically my little title page for my recipe book.
Here is my first real page, and favorite page so far. This basically represents how I want my whole book to look, eventually.
This is the first recipe I added to the "sweets" section. I decided to number the pages starting at 1 for each new section. This way, I don't have to number every page in the book, only ones that I've already written on. The "Sweets" section page has a table of contents for the recipes just in that section. This will make finding each recipe easy. I used pictures of the food I made so that it is even more personal.
Here is my frosting page. I'm going to add more today, but I wanted to share what I've done already because I'm so excited. I want to create a recipe book with a homemade, scrappy feel. I hope to have it filled with unique recipes and have each page tell a story. I can't wait to keep going and see what my book turns out to be years from now.
