Cooking Scrapbook Pages

We had our monthly class this week, I was teaching, and we chose the theme "cooking". While vintage style is my favorite, and I had many vintage cooking ideas in my head, when I saw these bright , cheerful colors in Michaels, I had to go with them. I thought they looked very summer-like, and the pattrerned paper was really cute. So my vintage will wait for another month.

We also went old school as far as hand cutting out all the images~ no Cricut used here! Since the images are fairly large, there was no complaining from our group of ladies-LOL.
All paper is from Michaels, the patterened paper is from thier own Recollections line. I think the cardstock is Bazzill. Here is one of the pages, cute huh?
The spoon and the mat in the bowl are not adhered to anything, this way if you wanted to write a recipe on it, you could take it out as needed to read it, and then return the mat to the bowl. The spoon was stamped with an older SU background woodgrain stamp.

Some of the edges were dusted with Chalk ink for definition.
The opposite page can hold many photos, recipes, kitchen notes, or a combination of all of those. Our group likes to do layouts that can hold several photos, so we oblige as much as possible.

Stamps on this page are by Crafty Secrets. Twine is from the Twinery. I am not happy with the stapled looked of the tags, so I had the class use a hole punch on theirs. I will have to help mine along somehow.

The whole layout~

Many thanks for stopping by....

It was a great class--and kudos to Theresa for hosting AND teaching-which meant she cooked the main dish after she prepped kits and cleaned! AND she did all this after running back and forth nursing her sick recovering from surgery friend all week! It was fun to get back into the real world for a little while and I am sure will speed my recovery along!
Thanks, friend!

Scrapbooking your cooking is such a cute idea. I love the page you created! I can't wait to try it out for myself. Thanks!
