Inspiration For Sentimental Sweets Album – Susie Roberts.
Imagine yourself on Mother’s Day giving your mother or daughter a recipe book you created yourself with all your favorite family desserts! Susie Roberts, a veteran Shutterfly book creator from Australia, and the Album Art Director at ScrappersGuide.com, had a dream to make it easy for scrapbookers to do this. Here, in her own words, is how the album came to be:
The inspiration for the Sentimental Sweets recipe album, comes from my love of combining family photos with favourite family recipes.
A couple of years ago I created a Christmas recipe book, which was featured in Shutterfly. The avalanche of emails I received from people wanting to make one just like it, made me realize how popular the concept is.
A friend of mind, who is relatively new to digital scrapbooking, and a very keen cook, asked me to help her create one too. She featured special recipes by the matriarchs in her family whose photos appeared on the opposite pages.
I cannot imagine a more beautiful way to pass on family recipes, than by creating an album that features photos of the people who were famous for them. The wonderful thing about these albums is that they can be reprinted as many times as necessary. My friend has daughters and nieces who were all getting married within a few months of each other. She gave a copy to each of the brides as a special wedding present. The tears certainly flowed as they opened their beautiful gifts.
At Scrapper’s Guide we have created a template recipe book called “Sentimental Sweets” from our Sugar and Spice kit. It features a recipe page on one side and a photo page on the other. There are a variety of photo pages, and they can be mixed and matched to suit your own personal theme.
As Mother’s Day approaches, imagine the look on your mother’s face if you presented her with a book like this. With our pre-made quick pages all you need to do is type out the recipe and pop the photos in. It’s just that easy.
