We'll start off w/ a recipe box!

So, I decided to start off w/ a recipe box that I made for a stamping friend of mine who celebrated her birthday while I was at the beach!  I finally made her her birthday gift!  Took long enough!  We got together today for our monthly stamp gathering, and I was able to give it to her in person!  She LOVED it!  At least, I think she did!  LOL!  I certainly loved it!  So, if she doesn't like it, I'll take it back!  It doesn't matter if it doesn't match my kitchen!  Hahaha!

Anyway, so, here it is!  When I asked what her kitchen looked like, she said French blue, country, chickens, that sort of thing.  Well, I don't own any stamps like that!  That's not my style!  MFT and Crafty Secrets don't make stamps like that!  Hahaha!  So, I had to be a little inventive....

This is the whole box view.

Here's the front view.

Here's a close up of the front, w/ a rooster.  That's the closest thing to a chicken that I have!

This is the top, and the yellow letters spell out 'recipe' if it's too hard to read.

                                                   And this is the inside. A close up one of the labels.

That's it for tonight!  I have more to show sometime tomorrow!
Have a great night!


  1. I finally started adding my recipes to my box! I wanted to print all new ones out because I didn't want to put food covered papers in my nice pretty box! hehehe

    Nice job on this one!

  2. OMG! I LOVE IT!!!!! I LOOOOOVE Roosters and I like dark greens and reds kinda Italiano style... You have approx. 62 days to get mine done.... ;)

    Hugs Erin, welcome back to crafting! Hope to follow in your steps soon and get going again...

  3. See - you think of everything!! You're so freaking innovative with what you had and what you need to make. Blows my mind, I tell ya!! I'm sure your friend will love this. As I do mine. Can't wait to get back to AZ to fill it with more cards!!

    P.S. I suck as a friend - I'll mail your BDay gift on Tuesday. Garry's leaving for AZ tomorrow, and I babysit Brecken all day tomorrow. So once Garry's gone, and I'm done babysitting, I'll drag my fat you-know-what to the post office. I hope you like it!!

  4. Ewwwwww, pretty! Love it! So glad to see you back at it!


Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by!
