This month the Scraps Of Darkness August Kit~Rustic had a Creativity Kit that featured a really cool off the page Cook Book/ Recipe Book package. I just adore all the FarmHouse Country Kitchen items in the Kit, Add Ons and Creativity. They remind me of my Granny's kitchen and just make me feel right at home.
I had seen some of the cutest Apron Cards done by a paper craft artist, Angela Poole, and when I saw this add on, I knew that I wanted to do one of those little aprons for the cover of my Recipe Book. I have the link to the template on my blog at:
I wanted a really distressed country feel so I did a lot of distressing and Vintage Photo Inking, distress embossing, and used an eclectic mix of the papers, colors, and trims to get that Country Kitch look.
I grew up in a little farm house that was short on room, but large on love. This book reminds me so much of where I came from. Yes, I am a Country Girl through and through! I spend most of my Summer weekends, canning, freezing, making jellies and salsas, and yes, I love to cook! I also love to eat, so I had so much fun putting this little slice of Country together, and I hope that you have enjoyed seeing what I did with the Creativity Add On.
Thanks for dropping by, and if you were close enough to drop by in real life, you could sit down for a slice of pumpkin cake that I just pulled out of the oven a few minutes ago. Oh well! I will have a slice for you :) Hugs, ~Renea
