My name is Emily from, iCreate...with Love, and I'm so excited to share with you a project I worked on for almost all of last year. Last spring, I decided I wanted to make recipe books for all of my family. They are always asking for recipes from me, and we have a lot of recipes that remind us of our childhood.
(1) a recipe card template
(2) Photo Book designed to hold 4x6" prints
(3) Adobe Photoshop or other photo editing software
It's easy as pie...I began by writing down a list of all of the foods that I loved and wanted in a recipe book. And I got to work. It took me the better part of 2010 to finish and in December I think we ate huge meals with lots of recipes because I was trying to get it all done in time!
If you don't feel you are a great photographer and want to finish more quickly, go ahead and a do Google image search for photos of recipes you make. Try and choose one that looks like how your finished recipe looks. And you don't need to worry about copy write as long as this is just for your family to enjoy!

I added my photos onto a card with the recipes, printed them out on my home printer (but you may also choose to have 4x6" prints printed at a photo lab) and put them in a simple photo book.
I'm so thankful Emilie let me share my recipe book with you!
Come stop by and see me on my blog sometime! :) I'd love to have you!
