Recipe Wallet

This is something that I've made for my Mum, she's had a bit of a rough time of late so I wanted to make a little something to make her smile. It also fits with the SophistiCat challenge which is to make any kind of wallet. The template for this was a free download from Papertrey Ink so I thought I would give it a go, and it was really easy to put together.

The paper is Basic Grey and I've punched the edge with a Fiskars punch. I've used ordinary brown and turquoise card stock. The panel on the front is cut using Labels 9 Nestabilities and then I've sponged some Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Inks around the edge. The word is made using peel off letters that I've coloured with brown peel off pens.

Inside I've covered the pockets with the same Basic Grey paper and then just popped in some label cards to get Mum started. I haven't had time today, but I'm going to type up some recipes for her too.
I really enjoyed making this and with more time I would have done some stamping and added more embellisments. I think the time fairy has definitely stolen some hours today as I don't know where the day has gone ! It's been absolutely beautiful all day and it's been lovely having the doors and windows open. No doubt it will all change tomorrow !
Thanks for looking.
