Here's the catch: Since this is a scrapbooking site, your recipe card will have to be decorated scrap book style. Say for example, your recipe is chocolate covered cherries, you could make your recipe card on brown and red cardstock, add some cherries or red gems/ribbon.

When you sign up, please let me know what your recipe will be and an alternate, in case someone beat you to it.

Here are the rules:

1. Sign-ups will be accepted until 9/30/12.
2. Recipe must be typed out.
3. Recipe card must have at least 3 embellishments
4. Recipe cards must also be made out of a heavy duty cardstock or similar material that is acid free for those who wish to put this in a photo album and must be 4x6. You can make it 8x6 and fold it in half or do a 12x6 and make a trifold.
5. The number of recipes cards you make will depend on the number of people who sign up. I am going to limit it to 10 people per category. If there is more interest, then I might start up a second group.
6. All cards must be in my hands by 10/15/12, that does NOT mean post mark day. I will be swapping them out that week. I want to make sure everyone has their cards in their hands before the end of August!

7. Mailing: I will try to use the same envelope as long as it's in good condition. If it's been used numerous times and the outside is getting thin, then you might want to get new envelope. Please include a return address label. I have enough tape, so I can tape it on, if needed. Include the same amount of postage, plus four 10 cents extra postage stamps.

For people swapping from overseas - I accept Paypal. Pm me for my email address.

Hi Kris, you're not late! We're slow moving in the recipe swap, lol Welcome, Keri, got your pm.

We're doing Thanksgiving early since Canada has their Thanksgiving before we do.

Somewhere I have my recipes. I found them last week while sorting out some paper work. One of the things I love about this swap, is, it's helping me to look up some old recipes and finally getting them down on paper and organized. I do cheat on occasion and pull one off from online if I can't find the one I was looking for.

You beat me to the pot roast one. I wish I could find this one I had for chicken. Talk about an easy dish. Put it in the crock pot and go about your business and it turns out perfect every time, but I always forget about that recipe. And of course I can't find it now. Just a few seasonings, easy peasy and tastes great, meat right off the bone. Leftovers are great to make soup with or sandwiches/salads.

I like to keep it to three recipes, but I sort of wanted to do a Halloween recipe. Anyone up to doing 4 this month?
