a weekend recipe project

I need to turn this:

into this:

and the rest of this business:

into this:

and its needed to be done for far too long.

There are two recipe templates that I'm using that I found through House of 3.
I downloaded the template,
made them the size that I needed and chose my own colors
of cardstock.  And, if I ever need any more, I don't have to worry about not finding the same cards!
Hooray for downloads!

I also cut the dividers out of chip board and stamped on the words appetizers, breads and so on.
It's a very fun project if you are in need of recipe collection rehab.

Are you working on any projects this weekend?

xo, Cassie

OH I love that download!!! Looks awesome!!! What a great thing to accomplish this weekend! You'll have to blog and share your favorites as your going through them!

And I just have to say once again how much I LOVE your perfect, unique, exquistely beautifully handwriting! When you do publish a book (especially a Memoir) you need to have the font created from your own writing!

Erin--I will definitely keep a recipe post in mind...I do have my favorites, and it would be fun to share!

Also, I love your idea to use my own handwriting on my book cover...I love that idea, and never thought about it! xx

Sooo cool!! I love those pictures and I feel more organized just looking at them. And I agree with the first comment: your handwriting is gorgeous :)

oh i love that idea, I have a big pile of torn out recipes from magazines and recipes written on bits of receipts just stuffed in between the books on my book shelf! I can never find what I'm after!

My project this weekend is reading, I have a book that I just can't put down. Another Jodi Picault - Picture Perfect.

By the way, those comments about your handwriting have just reminded me... I love your handwritten font for your headers, I can't figure out how to change mine, is it HTML code?

Now that looks like a huge project! You are so ambitious!

I actually love organizing just feel like you accomplished so much when you are finished! Hope it is going well!

I just reorganized my recipes a few weeks ago. Plastic sheet protectors and dividers. It was tedious but SO worth it once done. Good luck getting everything done!! :)

Ladies-thanks for your comments, compliments and your encouragement. This task could take forever...!

Shelly-I'm on the lookout for a cute binder to store recipes that I don't want to re-write but would be better kept in sheet protectors. I think I may just have 3-4 different kinds of recipe holders, but that's okay!

You are so clever!

can sanity be considered a project?

good luck--what a worthy cause. though, i must say my favorite recipes are the ones that are smeared and stained and clearly loved!

What a great idea! I so need recipe rehab! I wish I was there so we could do it together! Love you!

This is making me want to get in and organize my filing cabinet! It's been a long time coming.

Lovely blog!


Erin January 24, 2011 at 8:31 PM  

I love this! I should do something like this myself. Looks so organized.

Oh that is the cutest recipe holder ever! The rainbow cards are on the same lines as my rainbow quilt I just posted about. We're definitely on the same wavelength sis! I've been thinking about you. I need to call you (or you call me when you get a minute!)


“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
