PL x SU Recipe Swatch Book

This week I have combined the challenges from The Paper Players & CASE-ing the Catty to create a little swatch book for our DS:-

I have used the sketch from the Paper Players to create the cover:-

& the challenge from CASE-ing the Catty to use the Memory Keeping section (pages 24-41) of the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue to create a recipe swatch book.  I was inspired by the Camping Recipe book at the top of page 31.  I even used a Project Life die to create each page.  :)

Here are a couple of the pages:-

I tried to keep it masculine & resisted the urge to add a heart on the front as the "any shape".  ;)  Instead I used the digital cutlery image from the MDS "Now You're Cooking" Stamp Brush Set.  I split the cutlery into three separate images, so I could recolour each piece.  Once printed, I coloured over the images with a Versamark pen & clear heat embossed them to give them a sheen.

I kept the "banner" theme happening by adding the recipe name to each card, using the rotary stamp, which I find is easier to colour with markers.  The cards are decorated with images from the PL Point & Click stamp set.

If you would like to join in the challenges, or check out the awesome DT samples, click on the graphics below:-

Wow! Way to use MDS, my friend; this is awesome. Hopefully this will allay your fears that DS may starve when he moves away. Fabulous project, and priceless gift! x
