Default August 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 CANNING recipes ~ the post below this one includes the specifics. Be creative and have fun with your cards! If you need different metal tags and don't have them from previous kits, 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 ~ 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. 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 August 31.

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

In July's challenge, I mentioned that we would be doing a "canning" challenge in the future. Well, the future is now!

This month will focus on canning, freezing, drying, preserving, whatever you want to call it ~ and can include, but is not limited to: jams, jellys, pickles, chuntneys, relishes, sauces, salsa, fruit, vegetables, jerky, dehydrated products, etc. I've included a few elements specific to this theme and several that are more general. Feel free to include photos of your real-life canning accomplishments! Your card(s) can also include "tips" instead of an actual recipe -- like how to freeze zucchini or blanch corn or easily peel tomatoes.

And never fear if you DON'T can -- include a recipe that uses one of these products -- which makes this a wide-open theme with lots of possibilities. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Thanks, Doris C and KCarlson, for this idea in our "suggestion" thread.

Can't wait to see what you all come up with!

You've done it again, Maurine-what an adorable kit! Thank you. A fun theme this month, too. I've done very little in the way of canning, but my mom used to. I'll have to see what I can come up with.

I took my own advice and made a recipe card that USES a "canned" product -- it's for Jam-Topped Mini Cheesecakes. You can see it here.

This is a great kit. I really enjoyed this month's challenge again. So once more, thank you for the kit and all of the hard work you do for us.

I used to make and freeze juices often when my children were younger. I still do some, but not as much. I found a great way to save room in my freezer. I put the juice into freezer, zip bags and pushed out the air. Then I laid them flat on a cookie sheet to freeze. I have a tray in the freezer to cover up the racks and to give me a solid bottom. When the juice is frozen, I stand the bags up as if they were in a file system. It takes up a lot less room and makes it easy to find what you are looking for.

Here are mine:

I haven't done any canning, but I do freeze fruits and veggies to use at a later date. Here are two recipe cards I made-one for a recipe using frozen banana and one for a couple of my favorite fruits to freeze. I hope they'll be helpful. I always enjoy using your recipe kits, Maurine--thank you!
