Updating My Recipe Journal

Updating My Recipe Journal


Hi. Lisa here today!

I'm working in my recipe journal.

I have an A5 planner where I store my favourite recipes. These are recipes that our family love and they all have stories attached to them.

I also decided today that I wanted to create some new dashboards. These are the 4 separators between each section.

I'm using the Doodlebug Design collection - Made with Love.

It's so perfect! I do have a process video here if you'd like to watch.


I used a page from the planner as my template to cut to size (cutting it slightly larger than the page). I laminated it and added the holes. I also  added a pocket on the front of each using this sheet. It's so cute. I love the illustrations.

I ended up decorating the reverse of each one too

I have brunch, dinner, dessert & snacks sections. But you could have whatever works best for you.

I couldn't resist the cute tags here. I cut them out and popped them inside the pockets.


I used a tab punch to create the tabs on the top. Using the papers from the collection and stapling them in place.


I also created a page about our Fluffy Pancake recipe that we use loads. It was given to me about 12 yrs ago by a scrapbooking friend in the US.  It was so nice to give this loved recipe a proper home and document the story. .


This paper here is perfect for story telling. I only attached it down in the centre, so I could slide my tag under and it's now held firmly in place. I also decorated my pages with the matching stickers which I love.

I'm so happy with these new additions to my recipe journal and I hope you like them too. Don't forget the video here. I've got an idea with the leftovers using the collection, so I'll be back with another idea soon.

Take care
