Stampin' Up! Domestic Goddess Recipe Box

EDITED TO ADD: Doh - how did I not notice I'd spelt recipes wrong? Maybe it's all about my love of pies! Quick re-glue job to do tomorrow then!

I've had a much needed afternoon of crafting today. I designed a recipe index card box a while back and will enjoy making it at my Cupcake Class on 12th May. In the meantime I can show you my Domestic Goddess version:

It's such a sturdy box and holds tons of standard sized cards and envelopes. The tutorial will be available from tomorrow so please pop back for that and the cupcake version too! I've used Crumb Cake card teamed up with the Domestic Goddess Designer papers. Aren't they fun? The letters are stamped from Letter It and cut out with Brights Brads popped between them.

I love these papers, the colours, the patterns and pictures. Can't understand why it's taken me until now to use them. I've punched this mixing bowl out of the patterned papers using the 2" x 1 3/8" Oval Punch and layered it with a frame from Sizzlits Lots of Tags. Here's a side view:

You can see I've decorated the inside with the Designer papers too - do you like the flip top lid?

Here's a better look at the inside. There are four dividers, although you could easily add more and it's got four packets of Stampin' Up! Whisper White C6 envelopes inside to give you an idea of it's size.

I had to make some fun cards to match using cut outs from one of the sheets of patterned paper:

I typed up the sentiments on the PC and printed direct on to sheets of A4 Crumb Cake card. I made two more:

I hope you can read the sentiments OK, if not just click on the pictures to see a bigger view. I wanted to show you that sometimes you don't need sentiment stamps, lots of dies and clever stamps to make fun cards. Just the basics!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
