When starting our designing your own personal cookbook on FamilyCookbookProject.com, you have a bunch of design choice to make. While many people simply use the default options included automatically when you create your account (these are based on the most popular design selections). We wanted to give new editors a simple way to create a coordinated look and feel for their cookbook, that is why we have created “Cookbook Themes”.
Available as the first option in the First Steps section of the Design Center, the 7 themes currently available combine selections for cover, divider, recipe layout, photo position and white space filler along with header and footer options to create a synchronized design for your cookbook.
Options include Rolling Pins, Farm to Table, Food Love, Holiday Baking, Recipe Box, Recipe Family Tree and Wedding.
If you do not like one of the options of the theme, you can unselect that option and choose other from our available selections. As always, you change your mind and change any aspect of the theme up until you place your order to print your cookbook. Nothing is locked in.
Check the theme options in your Editor Design Center.
