Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop with Authentique Rejoice Christmas Recipe Folio
Hello, Friends! I’m so glad you hopped on over from Karen’s lovely blog to see this Authentique Rejoice Christmas Recipe Folio. It’s my project for the Really Reasonable Ribbon November Hop and my Authentique Paper Design Team post.
Baking plays a big role in the Clement clan holiday festivities! What better way to showcase all those treasured special cookie, appetizer and treat recipes than in this lovely 8″ x 8″ folio. Authentique Paper’s Rejoice collection looks like it was made specifically to go with the gorgeous ribbons in this month’s RRR Club!
Ribbon does more than just tie pretty bows! It’s also a great way to add a border to a card, mini album or layout. For the cover, I’ve layered Old Gold Shimmer Satin Ribbon with Snowflakes on Old Gold Satin. This lends a wonderful richness and elegance to the traditional plaid papers .
The bow cluster features more ribbons from this month’s club: Old Gold Diamond Satin Ribbon and Holiday Dots Satin. To pick up on these ribbons, I painted the resin frame with white chalk paint, then spattered with gold mica mist. Shabbylicious!
Gold Reindeer and a festive gingerbread man charm fit right it with all the gold and white ribbons.
Authentique Rejoice Christmas Recipe Folio: A Peek Inside
The interior of the album is filled with interactive elements and lots of tuck spots for the printed recipe cards that come with the Rejoice collection. I’ve used ribbon as an accent on many of the pages.
The heart of this Rejoice Christmas Recipe Folio is the pocket waterfall. Recipe cards can be tucked inside the pockets for safe keeping. Add a label to the front of the pocket so you know which recipe is inside. The back side of each page has room for a photo or journaling. I’ve used more of the Old Gold Snowflake satin ribbon to hold everything neatly in place.
As you can see, there’s loads of room for photos, journaling and recipes here.
Authentique Rejoice Christmas Recipe Folio Tour on YouTube
It’s easier to view a mini album in a video format, so I prepared a short tour with tips and tricks for you to enjoy.
