The only patterned paper I used was Graphic 45 Home Sweet Home 12x12. This was quite a challenge for me as I usually use all sizes of the paper pads when I make a project. The black and cream sheets are plain cardstock from Recollections. The flourishes through out the book are a die cut from my cricut. I used ColorBox Chestnut Roan ink around all the papers.
I did not embellish the cover as I wanted it to fit on a book shelf without things getting smashed. The front does protrude some for the pocket that hold the recipe holder. The font through out the book is Abigail from Quickutz. I coated them as well as all the flourishes with clear Wink of Stella. I did top the letters off with Glossy Accents for more dimension. I added metal corners on the covers just to protect them.
This is the inside of the front cover.

Next: The decorations on this set is just fussy cuts from the paper in the collection. I did use pop take on the four on the right page so they have a little dimension.
The right side has kind of a double pocket and each contains little booklets.
Next pages: Again the decorations are just fussy cuts mounts on black paper.
Next comes the Kiss the Cook pages.
The pocket on the right contains this little booklet. Each page has a pocket where each can house several recipe cards.
The pocket itself is a fold out. It is held shut with magnets.
Last set of pages:
The back cover has a matching booklet to the front cover.
This mini album is made of four large pocket pages and eight half sized pocket pages. Each large pocket page contains a large tag with pockets on both sides to hold lots of recipe cards.
