One of the challenges this month in the designing with 2008 calendar is to alter a binder. I had 2 binders in my kitchen that were functional, but ugly. One stores recipes I’ve printed from the internet, torn out of magazines, etc. The other holds menus from local restaurants. Yesterday I picked up a 2-pack of Avery view binders to alter and replace the old, ugly 2.
Favorite Recipes binder
Supplies: Avery binder; We R Memory Keepers patterned paper; My Mind’s Eye “frame ups”; Making Memories TinyAlpha; QuicKutz Sunshine font; Die Cuts with a View adhesive backed cardstock; generic staples; white CS; black ink pad.
I was also inspired by Mar 12 of dw2008 for this design. The prompt was to print digital paper to use. I created my own paper by scanning some of the menus, “tossing” them around in Photoshop, and then printing on a marbled grey/white cardstock.
Supplies: Avery binder; Archiver’s black cardstock; misc “marbled” grey/white cardstock; Die Cuts with a View adhesive backed cardstock; QuicKutz Studio classic font.
I've been thinking of doing something similar. So do you just buy regular scrapbook paper and cut it to size? Or cardstock? How does it not wrinkle when you put it in?
I have a recipe binder too. I need to update it, because some of the recipes we no longer make because we've found others we like better. I like your idea for putting menus in the binder too. I have mine in a magnetic letter box on my fridge. It works for me but needs some organization too I think.
Great job I love them both.
