Crafty Secret Design Team Challenge (Kitchen/Cooking theme)

Here it is .. time for another Crafty Secrets Design Team challenge. The theme this month is "Cooking/Kitchen". If your not familiar with our challenges, here's how it works. Every girl on the team, (and a chosen guest designer for that month) , all post projects with that months theme in mind. We each list all the other DT members blogs, and the guest designers blog, along with the Crafty Secrets website and Heartwarming Vintage Blog, so you have a chance to pop around and check them all out. These girls never fail with gorgeous projects and lots of inspiration.
I did a couple of projects for this challenge. The first one is a little cookbook album.

For this project I used The Crafty Secrets "Square Chipboard Album"

It's a simple little album with some of my favorite recipes included.

All the chipboard pieces that I used to show off the actual photos, all come in the album kit. I added the cooking images to this album..but it's easily adaptable for any theme you chose. These little albums are really fun to do.




I punched out some of the little images and added them to the centers of these charms to hang from the album.


************************************************************
My second project was made with the
Kitchen Mail Vintage Postcard Kit

I made this little recipe tin , with 20 large stamped recipe cards and this altered close pin recipe holder... that I've decided to
GIVE*A*WAY
Yep... While I was making it , I was thinking .. "hey.. this would be fun to give a way when I do my challenge post. hmmmm... Okay then.
All you have to do , if you want your name for a chance to win, is tell me in your comment.. that you'd like a chance to win. Easy as that!
I'll announce the winner , in my next post Wednesday ( day after tomorrow)

So this is what I'll be giving away. ( in photo below)
I stamped the large recipe cards inside with stamps from the cute little stamp set that comes with this postcard set. I love finding ways to use these postcard sets. The images are darling!
I thought this little lunchbox tin would be a cute thing to be able to set out and just keep those "most used" recipes in. Hey, actually I need one of these! lol

Below is the matching recipe holder

I hope whoever wins this .. will enjoy it.

Now......
Here are the links to the other girls blogs.. that you'll defiantly want to check out
Heartwarming Vintage Blog


Put your name in for the giveaway here.. and I'll draw a winner and announce it on Wed.
Have a great week!
