Recipe Folder with Cake Ribbon

I'm sharing with you a recipe folder I have made for the Inspirations site.

I got the template for the idea from the Art of Pen Pals course Ronda Palazzari is running.  We are using them as letter holders but this one I have repurposed for a recipe folder.

I've used regular 12x12 sheets of card and some freebie stamps and Banana Frog stamps for the decoration...


And the yummy cake ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.

I've used one pocket for some of my Granma's recipes and one pocket for a couple of recipes from my Mum.


Did any one else have a favourite birthday cake as a child?  Mine was a Harriet Hedgehog cake...  Yum!

I've also added a loop of ribbon to make a pen holder so any adjustments for ovens or half quantities can be jotted down easily.

I reckon Birthday ribbon for a card holder, macaron ribbon for a biscuit recipe folder, paw print ribbon for a vets folder or pet insurance folder, car ribbon for a road tax and MOT folder...  Super cute, easy to keep all our bits in one place and easily personalise-able!

Thanks for stopping by!!

DMIO: Teach Me Something

A few weeks back I made a dream catcher.  A few readers asked if I could show them how I made it, so, here is my attempt at a tutorial! First up weaving the web. 1. You'll need a hoop and some ribbon/thread/yarn on a bobbin. 2. Attach the ribbon securely to your hoop. 3. Take your ribbon over the top of the hoop... 4. and up through the loop you've just made with the ribbon... 5. so you have a cross over. 6. Continue steps 3-5 until you reach the knot. 7. Now instead of going over the hoop you will crossover the ribbon 8. and through the loop you've just made to give a crossover. Continue on in this fashion until you get to the middle. You need to leave a hole in the middle as this is where the good dreams get through!  They then run down the tassels/feathers/any other hanging decoration and on to the owner.  It should look something like this.  You'll need to play around with your tension until you get a firm web. Now for the tassels - I like to

A Poe Quote

So I've been trying out art journalling for a while but had nothing that I wanted to share, until now. I was inspired by The Bears Challenge and picked this quote to base my page on. "If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered" I got some paints out, some spray mists too.  I used my fan brush, my fingers and a cotton rag.  I got messy, satisfyingly messy :) The letters are some old letraset vinyls that were my Aunt's.  When we cleared my Grandparents house I couldn't stand the art goodies to go to waste.  I saved them because I knew one day I would find a use for them.  They must be 40 years old but are still perfect.  (I sometimes look at things I get today and think they won't still be good in 5 years let alone 40!) I don't have the complete alphabet so there are some adaptations... c's became o's, E's became t's, w's became m's.  I magicked a k from a P!  Some
