BRRR! Its so cold here in New Hampshire. The snow is falling, and I am already awaiting Spring!

I am getting ready to work out, then record my Monday with Mytime video!! I’m excited to get going, and take all the advice, and put it into fruition! Thank you for all the advice, and excitement. You all made me feel OK and comfortable doing this, and sharing myself-so THANK YOU.

Jackie’s Cooking Recipe Wrap Up


Today’s project is another Christmas gift I made for Amber’s other teacher. You may remember I did one similar-for a Cookie Swap—–>HERE!

I made so many awesome gifts that were personalized this year using my JustRite Stampers. I’m actually shocked that my small letters aren’t worn out! LOL! I actually did invest in another set because sometimes I use a lot of a particular letter, and have lost a few because I’m too lazy to get on my floor and LOOK for them! LOL! They are cheap enough! You can never have too many letters-right?

Keep watching because I do have a NEW! JustRite Stampers product release to share (I was fortunate that they sent it to me and asked me play, and share an opinion! It was perfect for this project!And what was NOT to like?!)

Now this is a gift was made using one of my FREE! My Timeless Templates © the Recipe Wrap Up!

In the “original” design of the template, the idea was to create 6 fold out pockets, with Recipe cards. Well, if you are tight on time, have many gifts to mass produce, you may want to use only HALF the template!

This project only used 1/2 of the recipe wrap template!

So, untie it…………


Isn’t it the perfect size for a project?!

You don’t really need more than the 2 pockets for a simple, and thoughtful gift.

You may only use half the template, but it is just as nice of a gift idea.

I used white,  Lemon Tart ,Summer Sunrise, and Spring Moss cardstock. My Ribbon is stitched Summer Sunrise stitched grosgrain. My pretty paper is by Imaginesce. Last Springs line :C I hoard, sorry! What can I say?!

Close up of the clip-to hold notes, recipes, coupons…..whatever!


I think having the clip is a great feature. I got my large Paperclips in the office section of Walmart for uunder $2 of a large container! They are FABULOUS.

I just used a Martha Stewart flower punch, to match the flowers on my paper. The “leaves” are my bridal confetti flowers, in olive. Love those things. You get a paincan FULL at Michaels for under $5-in the bridal section. (Sorry I get hundreds of emails asking about this everytime I post). The flower centers are dew drop like pieces also found at M’s like a year ago.

Now moving on to my pockets-instead of the printable pocket template (I was tight on TIME), I used little envelopes that came with some LOVE NOTES, I purchases from Stampin Up! like 3 years ago. They are meant to hold 3X3 notecards. Well, I cut down the top to 2 1/2 and they are PERFECT for my recipe cards.

Here is the close up of From the Kitchen of Jackie pocket tag-


This is where the NEW! product comes in!! Notice: I have upper AND lowercase letters?!

 How awesome! They are FINALLY adding a lower case set to the New Times Roman font! HAPPY DANCE!!

Doesn’t it look so much better with the mix of upper and lower letters! I mean it was great before, but not its even better!

I just popped in my border, then spelled out her name. Easy Peasy!

Now make sure you check out—-> their blog <—-because they have been sharing what new products they are releasing! I may be in trouble. Looks like they are revealing 25 new items at CHA!

If you are going to CHA you will see a few of my creations in their booth! I was asked to send some along, since they enjoyed some of my posts shared 😀

2 projects you haven’t seen, and I didn’t get GREAT photos before I sent them :C

From my friends kitchen tag close up


Now the “From the Kitchen” border is from—> THIS set. I get a lot of use from that one too. I LOVE circles, so that adds to my love for those borders.

Now to go with the gift-I purchased a Tastes of Home  (my absolute FAVORITE place to get recipes from! We have had our very best meals from this site! All of it is very easy too!!) slow cooker recipe book.

I decided to make a special magazine tube to present it to her, wither her Recipe Wrap Up! © gift.


Isn’t that just a fun way to present a magazine/book? Just untie the ends and slide out.

Here is the set, presented together


It’s just so cute!
It was well received too.

So that is it for today. I hope you liked today’s feature. I’m off to get going on my video.

Wish me luck 😀
