My Card for Create4fun

Hey, everyone!
I'm really sorry for not putting up any cards. :-(. I've been awfully busy.
Anyways, this is a recipe book that I've made for Create4Fun. I'm going to a wedding next week and I've made this as a wedding present! I got this idea from Gio, at the Whiff of Joy Tutorial Blog
So, above is the front cover, and below is a closeup of the stamp I used, Willow with Chicken Soup from WOJ. Cute! I colored her with my Copics. Here's a list of the the colors I used.
Hair: E31 and E33.
Shirt: E29 and E37.
Apron: YG95 and YG97.
Pants: YR00
Pot: E13 and E15
Cloth under pot: E29
Smoke: C1 and C3.
Barret, Apron tie, and shoes: R85

This is a picture of the first two pages, the Main Dish section. There is a recipe on the white side, and there's a pocket to put other recipe cards in on the other side.

Here's a closeup of the recipe. It's one of my favorites and is wonderful. :-)

I used the Christmas Swirls set from WOJ, and I stamped them with distress ink in Walnut Stain. I also used Walnut stain for the distressing around the side.

This is the Vegetable and Side dish section

JalapeƱo Corn Casserole is one of my favorite dishes. We have it at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and other big dinners. I stamped the swirls with distress ink in Peeled Paint. (I think that's the name?)

Here's the Breakfast section.

This cinnamon roll recipe is my favorite.

The dessert section.

I really like this chocolate sheet cake, and it's really quick and easy.

Here's the holiday section.

This ham is really good for Christmas and Easter, and you pass a pineapple sauce with it. Yum!

Well, that's it! Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of the back cover, but the paper is green card stock. :-(
Well, thanks for looking. I had a lot of fun with it!


Note from Greta's Mom, Lisa:
The cake, meatballs and cinnamon rolls come from a fabulous cookbook, The Pioneer Woman Cooks. Here's her blog post on it and where to buy it. You should, it is a great book! I hope Pioneer Woman doesn't mind Greta sharing with our soon-to-be-married friend. (I plan to also buy our friend the Pioneer Woman Cooks cookbook!) :-)


  1. This is the most thoughtful gift ever! You did a great job with the cookbook and shared your favorite recipes. I'm sure the bride and groom will love it! I think I need to check out the pioneer woman, but my recipes don't have as pretty a home as your hand made book!
