Recipe Box

Recipe Box

Hi everyone!   Welcome to Wednesday and as always I have some inspiration for Heartfelt Creations for you today!  Since this is the New Year and almost everyone starts the year off with the resolution to start eating better I felt that there was no better project then to build a recipe box to store all those favorite healthy recipes!

I even covered the section dividers with some of the coordinating paper from the Classic Sunflower Paper Collection which are now ready to be personalized.

About Castlepark Designs

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
