hybrid hotness | recipe cards

A while back I stumbled across a 6x8 Snap album by Simple Stories, and even though I am strictly a digi girl when it comes to my Project Life, I felt like I had to have it. So I got it, and then it sat empty on a shelf for a couple of months. I had no idea what to do with it.

But then I happened to see the super cute and very practical Recipe Maven recipe cards templates by Scotty Girl Design. The album would be ideal to keep all the recipes that we have come to love but that I only have pinned on Pinterest, and with that are becoming increasingly difficult to find as I grow my pinboards (and that seems to happen quickly).

The templates come in several shapes, that fit perfectly with the page protectors. Since I got the Snap album in teal, I felt that I wanted a neutral compliment in the recipe cards, so I modified the templates to fit my vision.

I am very happy with the look, and the fact that the plastic page protectors are perfect in the kitchen when messy fingers want to get hands on.

Now I just need to remember to actually take photos of the food when we cook it!

photography | david loftus

You guys probably know by now that I love food. I also like to document what we eat, sometimes with my phone, but other times with my Nikon. Naturally, I'm always up for learning how to improve my food shots.

If you follow me on Facebook (if not, just click the Facebook logo over on the right to go straight over and like me) you saw yesterday that I gave a tip to check out Jamie Oliver's Food Tube on Youtube to get food photography tips from his go-to photographer David Loftus.

Now, they just started Food Tube on Monday so there is just one film with David as of yet, but there is more coming. I have subscribed, go on over and do it to, why don't you? Check out David's master class here!
