Recipe Exchange - Christmas in July
Hi everyone. One of the best things about Christmas is the food. As we are celebrating CHRISTMAS IN JULY all month i thought it was a good excuse to share some recipes and give us a head start to the real thing.
As Christmas to me has always been about giving I have a gift for you as well.
If you would like to participate just create a page with your favourite recipe/s.
At the end of the month everyone who participates will receive all the pages and recipes.
As we like to keep our recipes at different sizes you can make your recipe either 3x5 in or 8.5 x 11in [300dpi]
At the end of the month you will receive them all on 3x5 cards and get any larger pages that are contributed.
COULD YOU PLEASE EMAIL YOUR RECIPE TO ME AT sharon at artforscrapbooking dot com so I can put them together to give out at the end of the month.
You can use the gift I have for you and also may use my kit "Homemade Christmas" which you will find in my store here [and it is 50% off for the month]
As we will be exchanging the pages we make
You can of course use anything you make yourself - my gift is just a few little extra recipe themed items.
When you are done put a preview of your page in the gallery and show us the link here. You can put them in the Recipe Exchange Gallery [it is old so lets revive it lol]
You can download your gift here [This is a direct download from my own server and should start automatically]

Sounds like a fun challenge! Count me in, and I already know which recipe to share :) Thanks for the gift, and I'll be back soon with my layout!
Sounds like a fun challenge to me.
Since we are sharing, should the recipes all be in 3 x 5 format which is the size of a standard recipe card?
HMMM I hadn't thought of that lol. I used to print mine but now tend to have them all on my computer or I print out - laminate and put in a folder.

I usually do mine sized to 8 1/2 x 11", so that I can put them in my three ring binder, which is full of page protectors. But I'll go with the size that's decided upon.

I used to just write them on a small card and keep in box years ago but some recipes were too long.
I will see if anyone else has input for a day or 2 and then decide.
I'd like to keep it standard to the 3 x 5 size, thank you. Be back soon with mine.
Ok lets go with doing them either 3x5 or 8.5 x 11 inch.
If you make at 3x5 300ppi anyone wishing to can upsize and add a background and print out to save at letter size.
if you do at letter size [Patty B feel free to do this] I will type the recipe up on a 3x5 card for the exchange.
That should work for all of us.
Thanks so much for the mini, here's mine
I had to google Emeril's essence lol, Pretty much like a cajun spice mix you get here or I could make my own mix.
Looks like a great recipe Patty. Thanks for joining in.
Could you please email the full sized one to me at sharon at artforscrapbooking dot com so I can put them together to give out at the end of the month.
Better dig my favourite christmas recipe out. it is a shortbread that is easy to make and melts in your mouth.
