New! Cookbooking: The Delicious New Way to Scrapbook

"Cookbooking was born one recent Thanksgiving when Barbara Winkler decided she’d had enough of digging through old file folders and desk drawers to find her recipes. Winkler, a former executive editor of Family Circle magazine, realized that when she assembled all those recipes, she had made more than a home-made cookbook: she had also created “an album that displays memories of the good times as well as the recipes that helped shape them.” Here, Winkler shows accomplished scrapbookers and newcomers alike how to combine organization and inspiration with 12 design concepts, ranging from family treasures to outdoor grilling. For each, she includes photos of album covers and finished scrapbook pages, along with two recipes. And all the projects look great because they’re crafted by renowned scrapbooker Pattie Donham, author of The Crafter’s Guide to Glue."
