Potatoe and Bacon Casserole Recipe Card

Good morning; I am here to share with you a recipe card/page I created for my Granny's Cookin' Recipe Mini-album.

I've been working on this recipe card from Creative Kuts titled Potatoe and Bacon Casserole; and I had posted pics of the mini-album I created from scratch using a 3 D ring binding mechanism instead of the Hidden Binding Plus System.  Hopefully I will get more pages into the mini-album this way.

Here is the completed recipe card - 8x8 card


I will have to admit here that this is the 3rd try on this card.  I laminated the card upon completion of the layout and wanted it to be winkle free as much.  The 2nd try had a winkle on the bottom edge after running thru the lamination machine; and I would like my projects to be as perfect as I can make them.

This is a svg cutfile, but I created png files from the individual files (ie: the potatoe and bacon grouped together and saved as a png file).  I loaded into my Cricut Design Space as a cutfile, than created a digital image and flattened it so I can cut out as a digital piece.  

The background I layered in Adobe Photoshop Elements and printed it out as 8x8 card on watercolor paper (heavy duty) which I like and will be using for the rest of the recipe cards.  Than I adhered the photo of the casserole, title and Potatoe and Bacon piece with spray adhesive (have to use what I have right now :-) ) and than laminated the card, adhered the finished piece to black poster board cut to size and two holes placed on left edge.

Now to the front of this recipe book.  Using a cutfile from Scrappy Dew Scrap Factory, I created a Granny with a recipe tags, and two utensils (from Creative Kuts files) and here is the final results.


My next album from scratch will be 10x10 in size so the 8x8 photo protectors will work.  They will not work in this album - over hangs on the right edge.

Thank you for visiting with me; and may you have a blessed week.
