Trattoria Blog Hop

Welcome to December's Club Scrap Blog Ho
featuring the great foodie themed kit - Trattoria!  

Before I get to my project I would like to take a moment to say Farewell and Thank You to you all as this is the final month the Club Scrap Artist Team will share it's creations with you. It means so much when you stop by to see what I have dreamed up each month.  I would like to also extend a hearty Thank You!! to Tricia and Club Scrap for everything they have allowed us to do over our past term. It's been such fun and I have enjoyed it all!

I never really thought of myself as a foodie before but when I saw the kit I knew instantly what I wanted to make (I love it when that happens!).  Our family LOVES to eat...we enjoy trying new restaurants and when we find a favorite we are very loyal.  We have several favorites that we visit as often as possible.  This album was created with those favorites in mind!

The album style is more of a junk journal type thing with all sorts of pages sizes made from a variety of materials (mostly found chipboard pieces).  Making it this way will allow me to add more favorites as we find them without having to stress over finding exactly the same page format. 

The inside page explains a bit about what the album is about...
Best Ever :)

(Oley's Pizza - Ft. Wayne, IN)

There's lots of stamping, hand written notes and several pages have typed up stories of how we found the place, where it's located along with what we love about it and/or fond memories.  I also included photos of either the restaurant it's self, signage and of course the food!

(Industrial Revolution - Valporaiso, IN)

I used hidden journaling on many of the pages - not because I didn't want anyone to read about it but because even typed our stories were too long to fit on the pages.  Hope you enjoy....

  1. Wow, Roni, your book is absolutely stunnig. All pages are beautifully decorated.
    Thanks for all your inspiration.

  2. I am completely in love with this idea. We have so many local restaurants that we adore, and this is such a fun idea to capture how much eating out and spending time with friends and family means.

  3. Wow, adorable and what a wonderfully clever idea! So fun to look back on all the good food and time spent together eating at these great places. All your memorabilia and the Trattoria Cutaparts go so well together.

  4. Oh my - I may need to steal this to use from now on - we love trying new places and I never remember what was where or which entree was best....Great idea!! I will miss the blog hop team - thank you for your dedication and creativity!

  5. Oh my gosh my stomach is growling! The Round the Clock diner sounds like my kinda place...yum! I really like the style of your book, this would make such a great travel log too. I like your idea of hidden journaling. I have a tendency to write a book when I journal! Such great inspiration Roni and now I'm off to whip up some supper!♥

  6. Hi Roni! Your books is fabulous! Cool idea to memorialize your favorite eating places. Thanks for all your inspiration on the Artists team. Have a great day.

  7. Oh, wow. This is simply extraordinary! You really ARE a foodie! What a treasure trove of wonderful memories this will be for you and your family. So many of my favorite memories include sitting down at a fabulous restaurant. I'm tempted to make one of these for the Morris family. It was so clever to make it in a style that doesn't prevent you from adding pages in the future. Best wishes as you continue to find new culinary delights! And thank you for all of your incredible contributions as a Club Scrap Artist Team members. We look forward to a continued creative relationship and friendship! <3

  8. Fabulous collection, Roni! It was an honor to work with you on the Artist Team!

  9. What a fun idea, and I love the "junk journal" style of the book. It will be easy to add to and enjoy over the years. TFS!

  10. Such a great idea, and I've been to Shady Maple lots of times, love that place. Love your book
