Wedding Recipe Scrapbook Courtesy of Winnie & Walter and Pinkfresh Studio

A true match made in heaven, Winnie & Walter is teaming up with Pinkfresh Studio to bring you an Embellishment Kit filled with goodies for your card-making or scrapbooking delight!

 The kit comes in an adorable pouch, and includes stamps, a die, adorable heart confetti with the middles removed, tags, copper letter stickers, wood veneer, copper buttons, epoxy stickers, you name it!

It was the perfect set of products to get started on the Family Recipe Scrapbook that I make for each of my husband's cousins for their wedding shower. Here's a photo of the last scrapbook I made. The whole family sends in their go-to recipe and some photos of themselves, and then I put them all in pages. The one I'm working on now is scrapbook #6 out of 7. Cousin #7 is in medical school so I'm thinking I have a few years before that one is due : )

The bride-to-be is Abby ... the one fanning her dress above. It was SO HOT when her sister had her wedding pictures done. I love this shot, and I love that it fits PERFECTLY with the sentiment that Julie designed from Winnie & Walter. The frame around the sentiment is a stamp and die cut. I also stamped the single, lined diamond shape repeatedly to make my own background. The wood veneer girl was colored in slightly to give it two tones. Love the shinny copper alpha stickers ... they're great to put right on a photo.

The kit also comes with two cute tags enveloped with stiff mesh. Here's one of the tags. I took advantage of the mesh and loosely stitched gold thread through the holes. It's supposed to give the impression of a butterfly's path. The butterflies are from the Essentials: Audrey Cutaways. I wrapped the extra gold thread around the butterfly to make a shiny body.

Here's the scrapbook page. Aunt Jerry is not longer with us, but I love that she's still a part of the family recipe book. The word cutaways from Winnie & Walter are absolutely perfect for scrapbooking. With so many pages to do, I don't have a lot of time to spend on each one. These large format cutaways fill the space nicely in no time. In a Word: Love and The Big, the Bold and Blessings are used here.

Here's the other tag. This one I embellished with cut out leaves from In Bloom: Addie's Garden, some twine and gold thread, and a sequin. Done!

This is my family's page (recognize me?!) If you haven't tried this grape salad yet, you are MISSING SOMETHING AMAZING. Seriously. Every single event I take this to people are mobbing me for the recipe. The grapes make you think it's not bad for you, but once you taste it you realize that there's all sorts of sweet things going on. It's even good 3-4 days afterwards. I highly recommend trying this for your next summer get-together. Make sure you take copies of the recipe though!

Here's a bonus page. It doesn't use products from the kit, but there are several Winnie & Walter products on it so I thought I'd share. The Big, the Bold and Extras and The Party are represented here.

There's a big give-away on the Winnie & Walter blog; be sure to check it out! Thanks so much for looking. I'm just going to warn you, I'm in slight panic mode to get this scrapbook done before the wedding shower next Sunday. Pretty much anything posted on my blog until then is going to be a scrapbook page! OK, you've been officially warned : )
