Need a gift idea for someone who loves to cook? Why not make them a recipe book? I borrowed this idea from fellow demVoilaBookOutsideonstrator Lisa Freeman.

This recipe book uses the Voila and From The Kitchen Of stamp sets.

Paper/Card stock:

Bella Rose Designer Series Paper. Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla Card Stock


Real Red Stampin Write Markers

Real Red and StazOn Jet Black Ink pads

Accessories: 1/4" Grosgrain Chocolate Chip ribbon

Ticket corner punch
Bind-it-all (or SU Sprial Punch)


I made two of these, so you can see the inside, where I stamped the recipe pages.

Want to know a secret?! The Chef's pants are actually made from the Bella Rose DSP!! I stamped his image on the brown paper that comes in the Bella Rose paper pack and cut it out. I adhered it over the image that I stamped on the Very Vanilla!

Pretty sneaky! But very easy!
No reason to watercolor or fill in with markers!

Here is the back of the recipe book:VoilaBookBack

I also included the "tabs" which would get stapled in the book to divide the sections, if the user wishes.

I used the round tab punch after I punched the sections.

The section names are from the "From The Kitchen of" stamp set.

I hope you like it!
