Nana’s Kitchen Recipe Album Kit Reveal for Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  I’m excited to announce my Nana’s Kitchen Recipe Album Kit Reveal for Button Farm Club today.  This project has been in the works for several months now, so it’s a happy day to be able to finally share it with you.

My grandmother was a marvelous cook.  Every Sunday our family gathered at her home for Sunday dinner.  I can still remember walking along her front porch to the kitchen door.  As you approached, savory aromas would make your mouth water.  Baked ham, roast beef, turkey, chicken, or lamb…you never knew what the main course would be; you only knew it would be wonderful.  Our big, noisy family crowded around the dining room table as steaming bowls of mashed potatoes, gravy and vegetables were passed from plate to plate.  This ritual of  lingering over a shared meal, lively conversation, and laughter marked my life and gave me a strong identity.

That’s why I wanted to make this recipe album kit.  It’s an homage to my family roots and a tribute to those country women who knew how to spread a table and create special memories.

Keepsake Recipes

This is the perfect place to write down all your keepsake recipes.  The album is huge: 31 double sided 6×8 pages!  There’s room for loads of recipes, yes.  But there’s also room to add family photos and ephemera from the people you love.


This would make a wonderful Christmas gift for your children, grandchildren or even for yourself.

Easy Pocket Pages

I chose this pocket page album design because it is so easy to work with.  The binding system installs in seconds, and the page protectors will keep your recipes safe from kitchen spills and spatters.

Digital Stamps and Sentiments

Once again, I’ve designed a set of digital stamps and sentiments to add to the value and beauty of this kit.  You’ll receive (2) 8 1/2″ x 11″ printed sheets of stamps in your kit.  But I think Laura is also going to make the stamp set available as a digital download in the store.

Everything about this nostalgic “made from scratch” recipe album is beautiful.  I hope you will love it as much as I do.

Nana’s Kitchen Recipe Album Kit Reveal on YouTube

If you’d like to join me over on my YouTube Channel for a walk through of the goodies that come in this kit as well as a page by page tour of the album, please enjoy this video.


You can order your album today at Button Farm Club. They will ship out within the next couple of days so you will have plenty of time to get your cookbook made before the holidays.

Here’s to memories made in the kitchen and around the table.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Kathy, this recipe book is nothing short of spectacular! Oh my goodness, every page filled with the most beautiful, nostalgic images. I loved your story of dinner at your grandmother’s house. That is one of my favorite memories as well. You have hit the ball out if the park with this beautiful kit. Thank you for sharing! Hugs!

    Wow, this is one of those projects that is a gift that keeps giving! Love that quirky oven with zany stove top switches and draped tea towels, a very different take and beautifully vintage. I can see why you wanted to present this special project now, it takes time, worthwhile time to bring it together. Oooh the chopping boards and charms, what a wonderful addition to the stash, I hope they sell well, but then you will have to create another kit just as good! Good luck!

    I did link to your email and attached 2 photos separately to download of the sawmill, I wonder where the emails are disappearing to?

    Beautiful. Do you have the printed stamps available on your Etsy page or is that exclusive to Button Farm?

      Hi, Sheryl! Yes, absolutely you can order without a subscription. This is a “stand-alone” kit and open for all to order, first come, first served. Thanks for your interest!
