Christmas is Time for Cookies

My mom, sister, and I have been getting together to make Christmas cookies the last couple of years. Its great fun to be together and to learn how to make cookies we grew up with. Now that we are married, we are adding new cookies to the traditional baking. To help us keep track, I thought it would be fun to make little recipe card books. The Christmas is Time for Cookies stamp set from H&M worked perfectly!





To make the recipe cards, I used a template that I made in Word. I knew that I wanted to stamp a cookie on the bottom corner of each page. I measured the cookie and made a shape, that could not be typed in. By removing the lines from the shape-it came out white and the perfect size for the stamp.

Today there is more Just Rite Stamper eye candy at Carolyn King's and Cindy Motherway's blogs!! thanks for stopping by!

I just LOVE this and you just gave me a great idea!!! I am always in charge of the cookies for Thanksgiving...and every holiday really. I could make up a recipe card for each kind I make and give them to my mom & SIL, etc. OMG you just give me the best ideas girl! THANKS!

Kim, this is just adorable! Those cookies look good enough to eat! One tip I learned a few years ago was to keep ALL my Christmas recipes together in one area. I would always be searching through all my cookbooks looking for the recipes I liked. So I copied everything and now have them all in one place. This is much cuter, though!! :D
