Here are the instructions for this month's recipe card challenge/exchange:

1. Click HERE (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=13_189&products_id=5426) to download the starter kit. It will be a freebie through August 14. Please use this kit (or papers/elements you design in the same color palette) so the cards will "coordinate" and to ensure we don't violate other designers' TOU.

2. The general theme for this month's cards is SUMMER TREATS. If you need different tags, send me an e-mail and I'll make them for you. Think ice cream, frozen desserts, smoothies, fruit recipes ~ really, anything you might make to cool off on a hot summer day!

3. Design your recipe card(s) however you'd like. Include your name, forum name, e-mail address ~ 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 of 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. Several participants have 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).

3. Post a link here in this forum thread no later than August 31 so we can leave you some love and so you'll be eligible for your store points.

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

Reminder about POINTS EARNED for completing this challenge:
• You'll earn 10 points for the first recipe card and 5 points for each additional card.
• If you complete all theStudio challenges this month, you'll earn a 100 point BONUS.
• 100 points = $1 to the store.
• Points may be redeemed at any time. PM Toiny or any Admin at the Studio.

I'm really excited to see what you all come up with this month! I love these colors and can't wait to see the gallery fill up with your cards and yummy recipes. I posted some pictures on my blog here (http://letmescrapbook.blogspot.com/2010/07/august-rcc-inspiration.html) if you need some inspiration to get started.

I tried something a little different with the papers this month to give them a more "dimensional" look. Hate it, like it, doesn't matter either way? I'd appreciate your feedback.

And last: thanks, Janice, for your "summer recipes" idea ~ you're the inspiration for this month's theme! I have a few more ideas from other people ~ feel free to send additional suggestions to LetMeScrapbook@hotmail.com. Let me know if you have any questions. Take care!

I loved this month's kit for its colors and textures. For usual scrapping I like textured papers, but I think that for recipe cards the nontextured look is fine too.

Maurine, your papers look wonderful and I love those yummy colors - mmmm, I can almost taste lime, strawberry, watermelon, tangerine.... now I have to go to the fridge and get myself some fruit, LOL.

Hope I'll make it this month, a lot going on, but all those recipes are a treat not to be missed! ;)

I'm loving the cards so far, everyone! Great job! I'm on vacation this week with limited access to a computer, so I'll reply back to e-mails and leave some love in the gallery when I'm home. Thanks so much for participating!

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to play with pse and your kit. I have been a "collector" of digital kits for two years, with nothing to show for it. I must challenge myself to learn and use. Obviously, I enjoyed making these cards and once started, didn't know when to quit! I will attempt to upload my link here:

You definitely have something to show now -- you did a great job! I personally find the different challenges -- either here at theStudio or elsewhere -- are really good motivators to get layouts or other projects done. Hope you'll play along with us again next month!

Thanks to everyone for participating! I know I have been very busy this month with vacations and work and enjoying the long summer days, and I don't even have my own cards done yet. But I'm still planning to before the month is over.

If you haven't received an e-mail message back from me, please send me another note. I think I've replied to everyone who has sent me cards so far, but my inbox is a deep, dark hole right now...

How's this for very last minute?? I had to get at least one card done for my own challenge! I hope to do at least one more that I'll be sure to include in the download link for all participants.

Here's my recipe card for Orange Julius (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=63740&title=orange-julius&cat=1042).
