“Made With Love” Digital for Gifts & Layouts

Today is International Day of Families, and what better way to celebrate our favorite way to spend time together–gathered around the kitchen table over a home-cooked meal–than with a special recipe layout or gift dedicated to this pastime activity! Made With Love, a heartwarming new foodie collection, is perfect for gift giving and digital pages! I have a few ideas I wanted to share with you that quickly came to mind when I saw this kit.


Pinterest is my go to place when I am looking for new recipes.  We have a group of friends we get together with every couple of months or so and I like to find new and delicious recipes for our evenings together.  I always have good luck finding yummy recipes, Pinterest never fails me!

On this page I love the cutting board paper for my background and it goes so well with the rich reds.  Tip:  For my menu board I made a rectangle shape the same size as the embellishment and used the eye dropper to sample the colour from this embellishment so they would match.  I then changed the opacity of this rectangle to 50% and placed it over the embellishment.  I could then place a text box on this shape and it made the text easier to read.

Recipe Cards

I love getting new recipes and giving my favourite recipes to friends for them to enjoy.  A wedding shower gift idea would be to make recipe cards with your own recipes or decorate blank cards for the bride to complete with her favourite recipes.

A nice touch is to add a photo of the food to the card.

You could print these with matte paper so they will be easy to write on and include a Creative Memories Dual-Tip Pen. fullsizerender.jpg

To add to the gift you could put the recipe cards in a 13 x 9 Pocket Album .

Feature a family favourite recipe or chef on a page layout.  This could be added to your family scrapbook or a new project such as a Family Recipe Book.  The 8 x 8 album would be a great size for this project.
