June 1 Monthly Freebie - Recipe Book Printables


I am SO excited to share this month's freebie with you guys. It's everything you need to create a fun recipe book - Project Life style. :)


This freebie kit contains:

1 Recipe Card with Ingredients and Directions areas
6 "Idea" cards - when you just can't figure out what to make
8 Food Quote cards
8 Section cards and 1 blank Section card
3 Note cards
6 Filler cards (3 each in 3x4 and 4x6)
Sheet of tab labels
Printable PDF

You can print the PDF and then print extra cards as you need them. 




This all stemmed from my desire for a book Brad and I could easily go to with our favorite dinner ideas. We had a lot of ideas pinned on Pinterest but we had to look them up whenever we remembered to make them. Now they're all in one spot. Here are a bunch of pictures of my own book, completed with this freebie. I used a Snap! binder for mine, but these were made with the intention of using them in one of the awesome Becky Higgins Project Life mini books. I just wanted the ability to add pages or move them around.

I printed all of my cards and tabs using the American Crafts white textured solid core card stock. 


The alphas are from Simple Stories. I love that they match my book exactly!


These tabbies are foldover - just score them in half, add adhesive to the back, and fold them over the page protector.


I really wanted an idea page, where I could quickly see a list of ideas to make for meals. By the way, the handwriting you're seeing is Brad's. Since he's the chef, this is his book now. I gave it to him for a few days to add a couple of things before I photographed the book. He's very excited! (No joke - he loves it!)




Here's a look at a sample spread. I like having a notes card for each section. And the filler and quote cards are great for the extra 3x4 spaces.


For my cover, I just stamped (badly) a vintage silverware set. It's simple and I love it!


I hope you guys love this as much as I do! Click here to grab your freebie and please, pass along the link to this post to anyone else who might want to organize their recipes this way.

Also, today I am thrilled to be participating in Michelle's Saturday Project Life blog hop over on Busy Being Happy. Please head over there and give Michelle some love and check out all the featured bloggers this week.

  16. This idea is great! I am going to use it as a Christmas gift for my mother. I was wondering if you ended up using any project life products or just the products from Simple Stories. Also, did you find a place to buy the pages in bulk? The biggest package only contained 10 for around $6.

  19. Hi I was wondering if each pocket can hold 2 recipes? If so its like a mini book with 8 recipes per 4 pockets. If so that's great.
