Recipe Box yearly journal

Before Christmas, a Close to My Heart consultant name Jo contacted me to see if I could work with her to create some projects.  Well, I jumped at the opportunity to work with this great product line and to support someone making a living in the crafting world.  Today, I wanted to share with you one of the projects I created using the cute recipe box that is available through CTMH.



Created with paper from the beautiful La Belle Vie collection this recipe box is meant to hold a collection of recipe cards – one for each day of the year.  On each day, you pull out the appropriate card and simple write one or two sentences about the day.  Then you can put the card back in, and revisit it next year when the date comes up again.  By only including one or two sentences each day, journaling is far less overwhelming, and you can capture events of that day from many years all on one card!  A fun twist on the classic journal!

Journal-baubleMaterial List

  • La Belle Vie collection
  • My Creation Recipe Box
  • Boutique Assortment (this is where you fill find the cute button I used on the front)
  • Workshop stamp set
  • Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge (flowers were cut at 1″, 1 1/4″ and 1 1/2″)
  • Stamp pad – Chocolate

If you’re feeling a bit intimidated by the idea of covering a box with paper, fear not!  CTMH actually has a video and template for the pieces you will need!  It’s a great place to start!
