Strawberry Fruit Dip 6 x 6 Recipe Page

I have a wonderful 6" x 6" album going with recipe pages in it. These pages are SO fun and such a cute way to display some of your favorite recipes.

I saw this recipe on Melissa's blog, Simply Pink. Check out her blog, she has some wonderful cards and other items there as well.

I copied the recipe and did my layout a little different. I have SO many fruit recipes that I could use this stamp set for a month and still have recipes left. And guess what? Stampin' Up! has extended the mini catalog for another month!!! SO I just may be doing more fruit recipe pages!!!

Last month I had gotten the "Viola to Go" set so I can use that for some pages too. Not all of my recipes involve fruit!!! LOL

If you're going to start making an album you will want to type up your recipe on your word processor and print it out. I like to try to keep my recipe in a 4-1/2" to 4-3/4" by 4-1/2" to 4-3/4" square. You want to have room to stamp, color or add embellishments or even all of the above!!! LOL I usually like to stamp some soft image on the background but this page I didn't. I just left it at the sponging. I don't think adding an image in the background was going to do much for this page since the red card stock was going to be drawing your attention. After you print out a few copies and measuring to get the words where you want them then print it out on your background card stock. Here I used Whisper White. I like to keep a copier paper printed one cut at 5-3/4" x 5-3/4" on hand for lining up my next recipe. I don't like to measure things if I don't have to!!! I just set the copier paper copy on the card stock printed one and lightly add some pencil lines for cutting. If I after working with it and adding layers I find I need to trim it back more I still have that option, that is why I only cut 1/4" off to begin with. I never just cut it 6" x 6" because I want to (and need to) add layers.

Ok, once you get your piece cut and know what you want on it just have fun adding your items. I don't tape anything in place until I have all the pieces assembled and sitting on the page. I sometimes move things around a few times before I find them pleasing to my eye. Then I tape it all up and put it in the 6" x 6" album sleeves. Now it's protected forever and is ready for your VERY fun and VERY cool recipe album!!!

Aren't they a fun thing to have???
