* * * * * * *
We’re going to do something totally different this month for the starter kit – I hope you’ll come along for the ride! Here are the instructions for this month's recipe card challenge/exchange:

1. Summer is here in my neck of the woods, bringing with it the opportunity for more outdoor, casual get-togethers with family and friends. That inspired the general theme for this month's cards, which is your favorite ”POTLUCK” recipes. This can be anything ~ salad, main dish, dessert, appetizer, soup, vegetables, breads, etc. Be creative and have fun with your cards! If you need a specific metal tag and don't have it from a previous kit, send me an e-mail and I'll make it for you.


2. In keeping with the theme, I thought it would be fun to have our cards also be a “potluck” collection instead of all from the same starter kit, so here’s the plan: Choose any of the 28 previous Recipe Card Starter kits to use; you can find them in my store (https://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=13_189). (HINT: To find these quickly, sort my store by items starting with the letter “R”). The majority of your card(s) must be made with these kits. Feel free to use pieces from multiple kits or additional CU items to enhance your cards (for example, brushes, actions, etc.). All the kits will be 25% off in June. May participants will receive a coupon code to get one kit for free. I’ve made a mini starter kit for June that includes 2 index divider cards and tags from all our previous challenges; you can find that HERE (https://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=13_189&products_id=13100). I’ve also added two bundles to my store that include all the 2010 (https://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=13_189&products_id=13088) and 2011 (https://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=13_189&products_id=13089) cards for additional savings.

3. Design your recipe card(s) however you'd like. Include your name, forum name ~ whatever you want ~ on the card.

4. Create your original card at 6" wide X 4" tall (1800 and 1200 pixels) and save it as a 300 ppi jpeg, quality between 8 to 10. These are the print-quality cards that will be shared with all participants. You will also need to resize your card at 72 ppi to post in the gallery.

WHEN FINISHED with your card(s), do the following 3 things:

1. E-mail your print-quality, 300 ppi recipe card to LetMeScrapbook@hotmail.com so it can be included in the download file at the end of the month. Do not share your print-quality card on your blogs or through any other means without my prior approval. Several participants have also asked for blank copies of the cards you design, so if you're willing to send me both (with and without the words), that would be great!

2. Upload a picture of your 72 ppi card to the Recipe Card Challenge Gallery (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=1042). Please upload only your actual recipe card ~ not the blank cards. You may also post a copy of your 72 ppi (web version) on your blog if you’d like, and then include a link to the forum in case others are interested and want to participate.

3. Post a link here in this forum thread no later than June 30.

At the end of the month, all participants will receive a link to download all the cards created that month. Bon appétit!!

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT SHARING YOUR CARDS (will be posted as a reminder each month):
As a general rule, I will share the print-quality version (300 ppi) of the cards you create for this challenge with the other participants; they are not to be given away/shared via a download link on your blogs or through any other means. Feel free to post a picture of the web version (72 ppi) of your card on your blog. If you want, you can also include a link to the forum so others can join in and participate. Please let me know if you have any questions about this explanation or my Terms Of Use (TOU) document.

Well, this sounds like fun! Off to see what I can find!

06-02-2012, 03:03 PM
Maurine, I think POT LUCK is a GREAT idea! Way to go!! I hope your time gets better for you this month. I know all about not having enough time! LOL
I look forward to joining in this month again. :-) I can't wait to see what everyone does. LOL

06-02-2012, 03:14 PM
This sounds good to me. I need recipes to take to church potlucks. Now, just to find one of mine to submit.

06-02-2012, 03:35 PM
Sounds great to me, too!

06-02-2012, 07:49 PM
This sounds so fun, I can't wait to see what everyone does!

06-02-2012, 10:04 PM
Awesome, thank you so much! I got five of your kits for $4.05 with the discount coupon and a group discount (what ever that is?). Then I also got a free kit from the store...what a deal!

06-02-2012, 10:26 PM
What a fantastic idea! I can't wait to get started, This is gonna be fun.

Maurine Stettler
06-03-2012, 11:53 AM
Hi, Kathy -- and everyone else. The group discount is 10% off your purchases all month long when you participated in at least one of the previous month's challenges. It's another reward for joining in! And the real bonus: that is an additional 10% off whatever the current price is, even items that are on sale...

Awesome, thank you so much! I got five of your kits for $4.05 with the discount coupon and a group discount (what ever that is?). Then I also got a free kit from the store...what a deal!

06-03-2012, 01:12 PM
What a fun idea for this month's challenge. I had a hard time deciding which kit to use since I have participated in many recipe card challenges. I finally choose the very first kit that I purchased. That was in September of 2010. Gosh how time flies...I didn't realize how long it has been since I first discovered this challenge!! I love it just as much today as I did way back when I started. A big thank you to you Maurine for continuing this challenge and always creating the absolute cutest kits to work with. Here is my potluck recipe card for this month:

hum...looks like I am only missing ONE of your recipe kits...I didn't realize I have followed you for so long. So I know what kit I'm getting...and it is a great one to make a new card from as well. THANKS for the fun challenge. I like it.

I know at first glance you think, raw broccoli, no... Just try it.



06-05-2012, 09:01 AM
What a great idea! With lots of family and neighborhood parties coming up this summer it will be great to have some new recipes to take. Thanks so much!

06-05-2012, 06:52 PM


I used the May 2010 set.

Cute card, Marnie. I didn't remember seeing a card from you for May and had planned to check on you soon. Glad I saw this one when it was posted............it sounds yummy, thanks.

06-07-2012, 03:52 AM
I bought the Italian Recipe Card, so I come up with an italian potluck recipe.
This is definitely my favorite !

06-07-2012, 05:31 PM
I was thinking about pot luck and decided to use the recipes I have taken to my families summer pot luck picnics. We all get together at the local State Park or at someone's home and bring a dish or two. Because I live two hours from the rest of my family, I love to bring something I can fix the day before or something I can start at home then finish on the gril when I get there. Here are some of my favorites:





















06-08-2012, 10:42 AM
I'm early this month :)
Here's mine, I had bought this along time ago, before I started in this challenge so I thought I'd at least get my money worth and use it!!! It's the kit from July 2010

What a fun "blast from the past" this month's challenge is turning out to be! I love seeing cards from so many of the different starter kits we've used in the past, and the recipes are terrific! Great job so far, everyone!

06-09-2012, 08:35 AM
I got one done! These all look GREAT, I can't wait to get to try some of these recipes!;)
Here's one I made so far, Taco Chicken Soup. It is soooo good!:))

You were right about the kits getting more and more elaborate! Thanks much and here's my contribution for the month: http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/recipe-card-challenge/p98954-three-bean-salad.html

Thanks so much for having the challenge this month, Maurine. I know how busy things can get so I really appreciate that you made time for the recipe challenge--I love the potluck theme!

Alright...I think I might have exceeded my limit of cards for one month. At first I was just going to make a card for the kit I just got, but then I realized that I had recipes from some of the other kits and never shared them here. I started the recipe challenge in September 2010 and I think I haven't missed a month since. When looking at the kits prior to that I decided to share a card for each one of those kits. Some of the cards were already made, and I had to make a few new ones....so maybe I'm not too over board. :) Anyway...here are cards using the kits from way back when. :)
February (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/data/1042/medium/NeapolitanBars2.jpg), March (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/data/1042/medium/Stuffed_Mushrooms2.jpg), April (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/data/1042/medium/SlowCookerSoup2.jpg), May (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/data/1042/medium/ChickenSalad2.jpg), June (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/data/1042/medium/Oatmeal_Raisin_Cookies2.jpg), July (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/data/1042/medium/DO_Stew2.jpg) and August (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/data/1042/medium/Reeses_Brownies2.jpg) of 2010.

I am so happy for the pot luck theme this month. I missed out last month because of computer issues, so I was happy to be able to use last months kit. I cant wait for the exchange this time all the recipies look so yummy.
Here is mine.

06-15-2012, 10:00 AM
My recipe is Pineapple Angel Food Cake



06-15-2012, 06:57 PM
Oh so looking forward to joining in again! Been busy getting ready for our first baby boy! I have missed the Studio and am hoping to get back in the swing of things! Happy Scrapping! -Katrina

Love these tags wish they had been in the store when I used my coupon.

06-16-2012, 10:05 PM

Thanks for another great challenge!

Ok so here is mine -- so excited to share these


06-23-2012, 01:02 PM
Once again, I'm getting hungry looking at all these amazing recipes. This is one of my favorites as it can be made the day before it's needed. Used Maurine's 201111 Recipe Card Challenge kit.

makeyesup Parmesan Potato Casserole (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/recipe-card-challenge/p99903-makeyesup-parmesan-potato-casserole.html)


And here's my second one, another make ahead recipe and also with Parmesan Cheese. used Maurine's 201107 kit.

06-24-2012, 07:33 AM
This gave me the excuse to purchase a couple of kits I didn't have and used the one from April 2011 for this card. Since the recipe makes two 12" pans or one large 11x15 sheet pan I felt it could be used for a potluck if cut into small pieces.


06-24-2012, 02:38 PM
Hi everybody - Here's the links to two (2) cards I made this month - http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/recipe-card-challenge/p99954-chocolate-covered-raisins26amp-3b-peanuts.html
Enjoy the treats!

06-25-2012, 07:18 PM
A recipe from my youth. It was sure to be at any family gathering.

This month just about slipped by before I remembered to do a card. I've enjoyed seeing all the different kits used by everyone. Loved this idea, Maurine. You should take a break all summer and let us continue using past kits. My pot luck recipe for June is for a Tomato Bacon Pie.

Here I am squeaking in at the last minute again. :rolleyes: Stayed up all night to make the deadline. I must be addicted to this challenge. lol Have to have a little play time, so I created the Metal Tile Plate on my recipe card.

I snatched up both of the recipe kit bundles, so now I have them all. ;) Big thanks for this opportunity to get them at a big discount.

This Month I shared Summer Corn Bread. A healthy filling good anytime treat.

Find it here in the Gallery. (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/recipe-card-challenge/p100155-summer-corn-bread.html)


06-30-2012, 09:21 AM
Finally I made it... just got home from holidays and remembered that I hadn't done the challenge yet *g*

Here it is:


(Now I'm all hungry *lol*)

06-30-2012, 12:28 PM
Well I have been away for a while as I returned to the US and set up housekeeping here again, and it took me the whole month to get one little card done but I had to relearn so much about Photo Shop and scrapping in general that it was almost overwhelming. But here is my recipe card for June, not perhaps the mainstream sort of "Pot Luck" but a very versatile breakfast or casual dessert recipe, Baked Oatmeal.


It is also in the gallery here (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/recipe-card-challenge/p100192-baked-oatmeal.html).

06-30-2012, 03:35 PM
I almost forgot to post this. June flew by.

06-30-2012, 06:20 PM
Here are mine, I have 3.




The recipes were uploaded first with no info and I'm not sure how to delete them. Sorry.

06-30-2012, 06:55 PM
Here's my card for this month... Enjoy!

Thanks so much to all of you for a wonderful month of recipes and cute cards! You truly embraced this month's potluck theme and have given me so many new things to try! : )

I'll be posting the information for July's challenge soon -- hope to see you all back. And with that, this month's challenge is officially closed!
