Default Recipe Card Challenge ~ May 2012

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

1. Click HERE for this month's starter kit. The majority of your card(s) must be made with this kit to ensure all the cards “coordinate” with each other. Feel free to use additional CU items to enhance your cards (for example, brushes, actions, etc.). The starter kit will be free to those who used the prior month's starter kit to create and share at least one recipe card.

2. The general theme for this month's cards is your favorite "KID TESTED" recipes ~ the post below this one includes more information. 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.

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. 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 May 31.

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

Default Re: Recipe Card Challenge ~ May 2012

I frequently check the ideas and suggestions forum to decide on our monthly themes. I noticed several comments related to kids recipes -- so that's what we're doing this month. Think of recipes you loved as a child, or your children's/grandchildren's favorite foods. Do you have any family recipes you made when your kids were younger and now you'd like to pass those along, or something you love to have kids help you make?

As always, anything goes. "Kid tested" is our general theme, but if you can't think of a single thing in that broad category, never fear. You can still use the kit to come up with a recipe that inspires you! I can't wait to see what you come up with...

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT SHARING YOUR CARDS:
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.

This is a great idea, but being this is my 2nd challenge, but first since I purchased the april kit, how do I get the May kit? Do I need to purchase that one too? It says if you participated in the past month, you get the current one free...is that right?
I'll wait to hear back from you. I realize this is only the 1st day of May and you need time to see who participated.
Hugz, Candie

Hi, Candie. I'll be sending you a coupon code for May's kit in the next day or two, so hang tight just a bit longer. I just got a whole bunch of April cards in, so I'm going through those this evening to get my final list put together of who needs the May code. Glad to see you back this month...

Ok, I'm thinking wayyyyyyyyyy back when, when my kids were kids and have come up with one recipe so far, lol Love this theme Maurine and the kit you are sharing for us to use!! I'm always excited to see what you have dreamed up for the next challenge. Think it is time to ask my grown kids what their favorite recipe was when they were growing up!

I have a question...can we share the recipe cards we create with your kit on our blog? I am talking about only the cards I create, on my blog. I will share this thread too if you would like that, might get more people involved...but no promises, LOL! Thanks

I'm pretty sure that Maurine will say "no" - the cards are shared only within the group who contributes and if you shared on your blog that would be a copyright infringment of the kit and her TOUs. We do get a fairly good turn out each month and I'm sure if you wanted to blog about it you could without offering the card.

Maurine please correct me if I'm wrong, but I wanted to make sure this got answered right away.

The previews should be posted in the gallery and then linked in the forum. You SHOULD NOT be offering the cards free on your blog. The cards are mailed to Maurine and then she mails a link out to all the participants with the cards she has collected. By offering as a freebie on yor blog you are making a copy right infrigment on her TOUs.
Once again, Maurine, just trying to pop in and answer quickly before this gets out of hand. This has been the rules of the challenge all along.
