    Simple Recipes January 2018

    Hi! Welcome to the first new Simple Recipe for 2018. I'll get a new one ready for every first Saturday of the month throughout the rest of the year.

    As with previous incarnations of Simple Recipes you'll be given a list of 'ingredients' to base your layout around. All you need to do is create your layout using all the ingredients given. How you do that is up to you but I will include a step by step with a finished layout so if you want to completely copy the sample layout you can do but if you'd rather do your own thing you can do that too as the Recipes are designed to be starting points to kick start your creating. As requested for this year I'll also include a layout video so you can watch a bit of how the sample layout was made. I'll try and include handy things to use like tips and techniques as we go along too.

    There's a PDF you can download and keep but if you have really rubbish wifi I've also added the ingredients and sketch to this post so you can work from that too. The PDF has all the step by step photos in it. I tried to embed the video but it's not happening so you'll need to click on the link to see it. I upload my videos to Vimeo not Youtube as you never know what dodgy stuff can come up on Youtube so I try and avoid it! I also have to apologise for my snotty coughyness it's gross. All I got for Christmas this year was a rubbish cold and it's still hanging on in there!

    Have fun with the recipe! Once you've finished your layout upload it to the gallery here or on your blog/ whereever you upload your finished projects too and pop a link up in the comments. If you add your layouts to Instagram tag them with @craftytemplates and it'll send them to me so I can find you that way

    Great challenge, thanks Leonora.

    Can your challenge be added to the main ‘inspirations and challenges’ section when you go into it, as you are further down the page in the bottom section and might be missed? Just a thought!
