When I first started working, (a really long time ago, lol) I didn't have a lot of money to purchase holiday gifts.  I decided that it would be fun to make an assortment of cookies and give them to friends and neighbors. It soon became an annual event.  Over the years I've tried a number of recipes, but always came back to the same few.  Each year I pull out the tattered remnants of recipe cards and magazine clippings.  This year I decided to collect my favorites into a book. I used the new Home Sweet Home Chipboard Album along with the Gingerbread Kisses and Made with Love collections to piece it all together!

I had so much fun putting together my gingerbread house album cover.  I modeled it after the Gingerbread Lane Doodle Cuts.  I used some icon stickers from the Gingerbread Kisses collection to set up scenes inside my windows, and added some shaped sprinkles to the outside.

I just love that little gingerbread man peeking out of the window!  

I also made a fun tassel for my book using mint Doodle Twine and the little gingers little charmers.

The pages are all covered with papers from the Gingerbread Kisses collection.  I printed each recipe on a 4,24" x 5.5" die cut stitched rectangle, which I backed with another paper.  On the opposing page, I die cut a stitched square. I plan on taking photos of the cookies as I make them this year to add to the book.  I then decorated each of the pages using a combination of Gingerbread Kisses and Made with Love embellishments.  I love how easy it is to combine different Doodlebug Collections! Take a peek at my other pages...

This really came together quickly!  I can't wait to get started on my cookies this year so I can complete the pages!  Have you created a project using the new Home Sweet Home Chipboard Albums?  Be sure to tag Doodlebug Design on socials, we love to see your creations!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
