February 2011 Recipe Card Challenge
Here are the instructions for this month's recipe card challenge/exchange:

1. Click HERE for this month's starter kit; it will be free to those who participated in the prior month's challenge. 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 your favorite FAMILY RECIPE. This can be something you like to make for those you love, a recipe from your great grandma, whatever you want. This is a wide open theme ~ anything goes! Be creative and have fun with your cards! If you need different tags for your card(s), send me an e-mail and I'll make them for you.

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 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 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. Please upload only your actual recipe card ~ not the blank cards.

3. Post a link here in this forum thread no later than February 28 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 recipe 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.

Happy 1-year anniversary to this challenge! Your participation has far exceeded my expectations ~ thanks so much for joining in and making this so much fun! This month's starter kit is based on one of my favorite full-size store kits: Luv U More. I can't wait to see all your recipes and creative card layouts and designs!

If you participated in January and want the coupon code for the February kit before I do a mass mailing to everyone this weekend, drop me an e-mail message and I'll send it to you. Can't wait to see what this month brings!

Re: February 2011 Recipe Card Challenge
I just started a new thread that will give you a place to add your ideas and suggestions for future months. Feel free to post there whenever the mood hits you! : )

Aww, come on are way too quick for us this month! I had just come on to aggravate you a bit! I wanted to holler "Oh-h-h-h, Maurine, where are you???"

Well, in that case, I'm just gonna grab my kit and go home...(and pout!) I wanted to play and nobody to play with...grumble, grumble, grr...

Oh, by the way LOVE the colors you have this month!! Cute kit!

Re: February 2011 Recipe Card Challenge
Another great kit, have to check my recipe stash to see what I want to share this month, so I guess I'll practice patience and wait for your mass mailing.
Thanks again for this fun challenge.

Re: February 2011 Recipe Card Challenge
I am trying really hard to be patient waiting. Especially since I must. No, I want to do it now!

Re: February 2011 Recipe Card Challenge
I got my card done early this month to make sure I wasn't late! Here's my recipe for a Stettler family favorite: Raspberry Jello Salad.

Re: February 2011 Recipe Card Challenge
By the way, the gallery is still messed up on how it's displaying your wonderful cards, but keep posting, anyway. It will get resolved...

Note to January participants: I just sent you an e-mail message with the download links for the January cards. If you did NOT receive that message, or have any problems with the download links, send me a note.

Re: February 2011 Recipe Card Challenge
Here's my card for February. Now this is my own, 'thrown together' dish I have made for years, so you might have to 'tweak' a bit to suit your tastes. My kids always loved it, my daughter once said she tried to make it and thought I actually used Brown rice--you can of course, but mine got brown from the technique used to make it.
