    We chose an updated vintage look for <br>our holiday recipe scrapbook design. <br>We created both individual pages that fit <br>into a scrapbook and stand-alone<br> scrapbooking projects. For Senior Food <br>Editor Diana McMillen's scrapbook, we <br>used patterned paper and fabric paper,<br> dressed up with ribbon and buttons<br> sewn right to the page. (To save time,<br> glue the buttons to the pages.)

    We started with a blank spiral-bound <br>book and added Creative Director <br>Geri Boesen's family photos, the story <br>about the casserole and the recipe. <br>Machine-stitching gives her pages a <br>homemade touch.

    Card stock and papers with edges cut <br>with pinking scissors or freehand <br>with regular scissors spiffed up this<br> page for Assistant Home Editor Sara <br>Reimer. We repeated the buttons and color<br> theme, plus added a flat flower<br> and a hat pin. A copy of the original <br>handwritten recipe (on archival-safe <br>paper) adds a personal touch.

    A decorated tag holder turns into a <br>sweet remembrance. Tucked inside <br>is the card with the fudge recipe from <br>Copy Chief Kendra L. Williams. The <br>story of her holiday tradition appears on <br>the back side of the recipe.

    Pearl brads hold a strip of lace in place <br>and add a touch of elegance to this <br>page for Assistant Travel Editor Hannah<br> Agran. Frame photographs on a paper<br> background, or set them in a <br>purchased frame.

    Memories from Garden Editor Deb <br>Wiley's annual family get-together fill <br>this accordion book. Casual family <br>photos work well in these formats. <br>Offset them with paper that blends <br>with the setting or season.

    Lace plays a big part in our last<br> scrapbook page for Associate Art <br>Director Faith Berven. The purchased <br>lace flowers and lace trim along the<br> bottom add a layer of texture to the <br>page. The actual recipe page becomes <br>an accent for the page and a <br>background for the food photo.
