Is always the time for our family, to drag out the grill and BBQ. It's also a time for hiking and picnics.

I recently participated in a SummerTime Recipe Swap at The Shaker Box message board. The swappers created a one sided 6x6 page with a favorite summer recipe. I was really excited about all the new recipes I got and I wanted to add more. So I created pages on the back side of my swaps. Then I assembled it all in an album I could display in the kitchen. I used the new Zutter Display It All to hold my album and make it easy to use.

Here are the instructions to make this!
Recipe Album with Display It All
I have a lot of recipes stuffed into this one drawer in my kitchen. Some are in books, some have been cut out of magazines, some a scribbled on notepaper or note cards. The one thing they have in common is that they are completely and totally disorganized. So when the Display It All was introduced I decided it was time to orgnize myrecipe mess and display it beautifully (and proudly) on my counter.
Gather your materials. You will need the following items to complete this project.
