I was at a playdate with my daughter a few weekends ago and in their kitchen, I saw the neatest thing. She had framed some of her grandmother's recipe cards! As I was admiring the aged, handwritten words - I knew what I wanted to create for Authentique's home decor challenge this month.
I remembered I had taken photo at Christmas time of a my grandmother's cookie recipe to use on a holiday page. I printed it at 4x6 and embellished it in this 8x10 frame.
Ironically, I used Authentique's "Infused" 6x6 papers, which I bought to make a card set for said tea-loving grandmother :)
I fussy cut one of the papers "life is sweet" for the bottom left corner. I backed the white heart doily from my stash with pink glitter cardstock. I adhered these crocheted flowers to the top of the frame for dimension and because they seemed like the perfect match for these gorgeous papers.
In our kitchen, my husband built these amazing floating shelves, which hold a collection of sentimental frames, our wedding glasses and cake topper and more. Now, it displays a piece of her as well!
Have a great weekend!
