JustRite Friday Challenge - Holiday Recipe Swap

Good morning everyone.  Today is Friday which means it's time for another great challenge over at JustRite.  This week the challenge is a Holiday Recipe Swap.  What could be better than combining my 2 favorite things to do - papercrafting and baking!!

My first recipe that I would like to share is for Peanut Butter Balls.  This is a recipe that I got from my mom.  She has made these at Christmas time for a really long time.  Now I also make them at Christmas.  The only time that I do make them is at Christmas so that they can be a special treat.  I, myself, do not like these (I don't like sweets) but everyone that I give them to as gifts say that they are really yummy!!!

I printed the recipe from the computer.  To embellish it, I used some JustRite Stamps.  In the upper righthand side, I used the "Recipe" set for the center and another border from the "What's Cookin" set, stamped with Memento Rhubarb Stalk and Memento Bamboo Leaves, and diecut with Spellbinders Classic Circles and Petite Scallop Circles.  The other stamped image on the bottom is also from the "What's Cookin" set, stamped with Memento Rhubarb Stalk.


My second recipe is for Anginetti Italian Lemon Drop Cookies that I got from my mother-in-law.  Even though I technically don't like sweets, I could eat an entire batch of these cookies!!!  They are soooo yummy!!!

The stamped image in the upper righthand side is from the "Recipe" set as well as the "What's Cookin" set, stamped with the same ink and diecut with Spellbinders Classic Circles and Petite Scallop Circles.  The stamped image on the bottom is also from the "What's Cookin" set.


Now I needed something to "display" the recipe cards in so I made an apron book.  The aprons are diecut with the Accucut Die system.  Each page is covered with paper from  the K & Co SW Glad Tidings stack along with DCWV cardstock.  It was bound together with my Bind-it-all tool.

The front of my book uses 2 different JustRite stamp sets.  The top image is from "Holiday Cheer", stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics and diecut with Spellbinders Classic Circles.  The green mat is diecut with Spellbinders Eyelet Circles. 

The bottom image is from "Hearts Come Home", stamped with Memento Rhubarb Stalk and Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics and diecut with Spellbinders Classic Squares.  The green mat is diecut with Spellbinders Lacey Squares.


This is the first 2 pages of my book.  Each page has a border that was created with the Martha Stewart Modern Garland Border Punch and green Stickles.  Each "blank" page has a row of felt gingerbread men with black Stickles for their eyes and buttons.

The stamped image on the first page is from the "Christmas Nested Sentiments" and "Christmas Nested Frames" sets, stamped with Memento Rhubarb Stalk & Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics, and then handcut.


The next 2 pages are shown below.  The left side has a stamped image from "From Our House", stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics and diecut with Spellbinders Classic Squares and Labels One.  The right side has a stamped image from "Favorite Occasions" and "Decorative Round  Frame Borders", stamped with Memento Bamboo Leaves and Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics, and diecut with Spellbinders Classic Circles and Petite Scallop Circles.

 The next 2 pages show how the recipe cards would sit inside the pockets.  I didn't have time to create enough recipe cards for each pocket but will hopefully get to that soon.

The left side has stamped images from "Holiday Cheer", stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics, and diecut with Spellbinders Classic Circles.  The right side has a stamped image and border from "Christmas Nested Frames", stamped with Memento Rhubarb Stalk and Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics and handcut.


 For the left side, I used a border and center from "Christmas Joy", stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and Memento Rhubarb Stalk, colored with Copics, and diecut with Spellbinders Classic Ovals and Classic Scallop Ovals.  The right side has an image from "Hearts Come Home", stamped with Memento Rhubarb Stalk and Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics, and diecut with Spellbinders Classic Squares.


 The pages below are the last 2 in my book.  The stamped image on the right is from "Something Sweet", stamped with Memento Rhubard Stalk and Memento Bamboo Leaves and diecut with Spellbinders Classic Circles and Petite Scallop Circles.

 Well, that is it - I hope you enjoyed my cute apron book.  It was so much fun to create.  I also hope that you give the recipes a try and let me know how you liked them.

Thanks for stopping in for a visit today.  Have a great weekend!!
