Default Recipe Card Challenge ~ December 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 “COOKIE or other CHRISTMAS TREAT” recipe ~ the post below this one includes more information. Be creative and have fun designing 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. 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 December 31.

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

December seems to be a good month for cookies: rather it’s making a batch of your favorites to leave out on a plate for Santa, being part of a cookie exchange, or making some to take to your neighbors or coworkers. That’s our primary focus for this month’s challenge – cards with your favorite cookie recipes. You can also create cards for any kind of treat or food item you make around the Christmas holidays – anything goes! I can’t wait to see what ideas you have to share and the cute cards you make!

November participants: I’ll send you an e-mail with a coupon code for this month’s kit in the next few days.

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.

A litte question: is it allowed to write the recipes in german?!? It´s so hard to translate every recipe, because you use other units than we here in german...

I have the same problem, but this site here is really useful: http://www.reckenpferd.de/tools/index.html

Nimm den Link für Volumen für Liter/Milliliter und den Link für Masse für Kilo/Gramm. Dann einfach die Menge in das entsprechende Kästchen eintippen und die Umrechnung kommt automatisch

Hi, there. If the site Esha talked about above is helpful and something you're able to use, that would be great! If not, I certainly would still love to have you participate -- written in German or not! : )

Yum, yum, yum
It looks like fun
With elves, and treats
For everyone.

Another cutie of a kit, Maurine. Thank you!

And to those of you who have already posted recipes...I'm going to be submitting my cards later, but only because I'm busy "testing" your recipes!
