Hi everyone, Audrey here, sharing a fun recipe album project today made with the adorable Thrilling collection and lots of goodies from our product partners this week, Basically Bare and Art Anthology.



Fall is absolutely my most favorite time of the year. I tend to go all out with decorating, crafting, and even baking for the season, and this cutie pie binder from Basically Bare is the perfect place to store all those yummy pumpkin and holiday recipes I've been collecting over the years.

Since I have a ton of recipes, I know it will be easy for me to fill a whole album. And with the binder format, I know I can continue to add page inserts with new recipes as I go.

Here's a few steps for how this album was put together.


First paint the entire binder, inside and out, with Art Anthology Black Leather Jacket Sorbet- Dimensional Paint. Cut a panel of Frenzy 12x12 paper to fit the front of the binder, and using a chevron template, mask a chevron pattern onto the paper using Orange Velvet- Dimensional Paint. Edge the paper with the Black Leather Jacket paint and allow to dry completely. Adhere panel onto the binder using strong adhesive.

 Cut one of the large journaling cards from the Forewarn 12x12 paper and one of the icon cards from the Mystic 12x12 paper. Emboss a panel of orange cardstock with a woodgrain embossing folder and paint with the black dimensional paint. Layer all three pieces onto the black Foundations paper and trim out. Add machine stitching, if desired, and adhere panel to the binder.


Create spiderweb embellishments by drawing lines around the Bare Basics Gears chipboard shapes using Art Anthology Blizzard Dimensional Crystal glaze. Drizzle with silver glitter while the glaze is still wet. 


Allow chipboard to dry completely and adhere spiderwebs to the binder cover using strong tacky glue.


Die cut a spider from the orange cardstock and paint with both the orange and black dimensional paints. Tie hemp around one of the spiderwebs and hang the spider from the hemp cord. Adhere a black button to the center of the spiderweb.



Embellish with Details Cardstock Stickers and additional black buttons.

Tie trims around the spine.


And fill with recipe cards.


Enjoy!
