Time to Cook and to Enjoy

Hello Maja Friends.

The more I work with Maja papers, the more I realize how much I love all the collections.

However, it is difficult to find the most favorite of mine, but I guess that each collection is made for a special season. Fall is the season of cooking for me. The harvest is a reason that is why I adore Autumn too.

Most of the recipes I save to the Pinterest boards ( though it’s quite rare when I check for them ). Actually what I really like to note and keep in my books – the desert  recipes, cakes, pies, cookies – well the quantity for them is needed to be checked more than twice.

That is why I made a special cook book for them

FikaBook_Main_ElenaOlinevichI distressed the paper sheets in coffee, so all of them have the gorgeous coffee smell while you are looking through the pages.

So I made 4 embellished pages, to separate the different kind of recipes.

FikaBook_ElenaOlinevich1I found some cute images on Pinterest and added them to my pages

Fika1_closeI really can not imagine making the cozy cook books without adding the fabric and stitching to them.

MajaFika_Book2_ElenaOlinevichI added a clear mug and put the mint leave and a spoon inside

FIka_close2My next pages are with yumy berries – adore those patterned papers

FikaBook_ElenaOlinevich7I made some pockets and envelopes inside:

FikaSneak_ElenaOlinevichAlso I prepared a video clip, so that you can look through the book for more details

Hope I have inspired you not only to craft but to cook too.

Have a wondeful week end.
