Question Re: Recipe Card Challenge ~ February 2013

I am confused about making index/Divider cards. Do we make them the same size as the recipe cards or a little bit taller, so the label sticks above the other cards?

Hey, Diana. It looks like some people have made them the same size as the recipe cards/blanks (1800 x 1200) and others have made them a little taller (for example, 1800 x 1350).

Thank You. I prefer the taller size. Suppose I could add the Extra Height to the bottom, Kinda like something that could be cut off if people like the shorter card size.

Another cute kit! I don't recall how I came across your site Maurine but I am so happy that I did. You are my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE and I don't even scrapbook. All of your kits are exceptional and the papers, oh, the papers, I can almost feel their texture!

So happy that I came across your Recipe Card Challenge.

Whoo-ee!! What a great kit! I especially love that little bird. I'll have to give my recipe some thought. SO much chocolate and so little time...

Your February kit is terrific! And Love Is In The Air is so great, too! This is going to be such a great challenge. Thanks for all the goodies, Maurine. I hope you're feeling better after that awful flu bug.

One of my favourite recipes for sweet food is a 'Mars Bar Slice" I am wondering do you have Mars Bars in the US? There is little point of me doing that receipe if you cannot get the major ingredient!

I hope you are feeling better! I HATE THE FLU!

When you feel better, can you check something for me? I see cupcakes on the display piece for this month's recipe challenge, but I downloaded it twice and mine has no cupcakes...all the other items are there. Hmmmmm.....I am probably just missing my brain.....

Thanks for help with the mystery.

Linda

I know we've had Mars Bars here in the US in the past, but I honestly haven't paid much attention recently. I can check the next time I'm at the store.

Or -- does someone else know? I really think the answer is "yes" but I am not certain.

Hey, Linda. I just sent you an e-mail message about this -- they should be there. I just combined them all in one elements -- 4 cupcakes in a row. It looks like Margie used on them on her card, so if your download got messed up somehow, I'll get them to you separately.

Yes, we do have Mars bars as far as I know...they're yummy...

Thank you Maureen for all you do! I hope you get to feeling better..the flu this yr has been awful on a lot of people for some reason..thank you for the code too..can't wait to play again this month!

May I suggest to all who do join- please watch what fonts you're using on your cards- some are harder to read than others- especially for us older gals who have a hard time seeing...leaving shadows off the words helps as well..thank you!

Default Secret Kisses

I made these today, ---and I cheated! I wrapped the Hershey Kiss in sugar cookie dough that came in a package in the refrigerator section at the grocery. SO when I did that, the dough cooked around the Hershey Kiss, but flattened the cookie so it looks like a little pyramid instead of a pretty shaped ball like it should. You can modify this and the taste is delicious, but recommend that you take the time to create the firmer cookie dough for these.
Here are the Secret Kisses

Arrow Re: Recipe Card Challenge ~ February 2013

Tips to make your favorite fonts easier to read, as taught to me by CanDesigns.
When adding a Drop Shadow use 1 px for the Distance and 1 px for the size. Any larger amount make the font Blurry for those of us who have older eyes. This also make the card easier to read when printed in economy mode.
When Using those Pretty Narrow Fonts use a 1 px Stroke in the same color as the font. This will make the font bolder and easier to see.
Thought this information would be helpful, Thank You for looking.

Great challenge and I really like this kit! TY so much for sharing it with us and I am excited to see the new recipes, too!
Maurine, FYI, I did edit my 2-recipe cards and sent them to you. TY for letting me know what needed fixed. :-)
Happy scrapping everyone!
