More About the Author

Born in Superior, Wisconsin, Sue's love for writing and art started before she could bait her own fishing hook. To feed Sue's creative passions, her grandparents constantly told her stories which they encouraged her to capture on paper -- in both words and illustrations. From building a humble cabin during the depression to a secret fishing spot on Lake Nebagamon, the stories told by Sue's grandma and grandpa opened her eyes to creative writing, sparked her artistic imagination, and fueled her passion for sharing stories and art with others.

As a young teenager, Sue gathered her writing and painting tools and biked to the shores of Lake Superior to capture the beautiful scenery in meaningful poetry and fluid watercolor. One year, as a Christmas surprise for her family, Sue completed a collection of short stories about life at the 4U2 -- her grandparent's quaint cabin nestled amongst the birches and evergreens.

Sue pursued her love of writing and art at the University of WI-Superior, earning a degree in fine art and journalism. After graduation, Sue worked as a copywriter/designer for a trade magazine publisher in Duluth, Minnesota. In 1987 Sue went to work for Meredith Corporation in Des Moines, Iowa. Her career there allowed her many professional experiences, including copywriter, copy chief, crafts designer, magazine editor, set painter, and photography stylist.

Today, Sue is a freelance writer, artist, and crafts designer with her work appearing in more than 75 crafts and decorating publications. Her creative skills are sought by businesses and individuals all around the country. Sue's works are constantly called "contagiously happy." To Sue, that's the nicest compliment in the whole wide world.

I have been planning to do a family heritage cookbook for some time. This book will help me get this project going! There are wonderful ideas given for scrapbooks of all sizes including 12 x 12 - a size I thought would be difficult to do for this subject. I especially like the encouragement to use copies of recipes in the original handwriting of your family's great cooks. Our family heritage is so intertwined with the foods of our childhood. Preserving these cherished recipes in an archival format is a heartwarming gift for your family.

Format: Paperback
Most of the pages she illustrates are the larger 12x12" size, but the author does give some examples of 5.5x7.25" and 8.5x11" pages, too. The projects are described step-by-step very clearly, and the photos of the pages are clear and bright. Overall, I found this to be a neat book with some really clever ideas. There are things I personally would not do (like use brads and buttons and stuff making the pages bulky and awkward), and I think she's wrong to use original photos and recipes, but that's my opinion. I really loved the idea of using vintage textiles as background art and clip art. It's definitely worth a look!

This book is just what I needed to inspire me to make Cookbook Scrapbooks for my daughters for Christmas! I love how it encourages me to scan old dish towels, aprons, pictures and incorporate them into my Cookbook! Such a special way to share recipes and family collectibles as well. Great ideas and easy to use!

It may be just me, but I thought this was an actual cookbook that came w/scapbooking materials for my family recipes. I re-read Amazon's description after I'd received the book, and still I find their description not clear. This is strictly a "how to" of scrapbooking your recipes - no cookbook or scrapbooking materials included. BUT I rated this book based on it's purpose. If you're already into scrapbooking, you're probably able to come up w/your own ideas w/out the help of this book - there isn't anything spectacular.

I bought this book because it was really cheap. I'm glad it was, I was hoping for more ideas. Some might like it but it fell short of my expectations.
