Since we're halfway through April, I'm extending this into May. This will allow more time to finish the cards. This swap will include three categories, Family recipes, potluck, and Mexican.

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, 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 5/5/12. Cinco De Mayo
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 5/25/12, 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 June!

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.

Yay, glad to see everyone back. I held onto Nicole's cards and she'll be sending the ones she redid for March's swap, so you'll be getting hers in this month's swap. There were other people who had their mail lost this past month as well. I'm wondering if the post office cut back so much that they couldn't handle tax season. That reminds me, Jessica, did your flowers ever make it in the flower swap?

Instead of family recipes, it looks like it should be cakes!

i hate what the cut backs have done to gamefly and netflix... it used to take a couple days to get there and back... now it sometimes takes almost a week. we kept gamefly because we usually keep a game a couple weeks before turning it in for another one... but with netflix, we would watch and send right back and then have to wait forever. we stopped netflix, now we just do redbox.

Melissa, I don't mind you following along at all. Hope you can join in next month.

Welcome craftncorry. Not a problem, just let me know when you decide which ones you want to do so I can post on the front page. This way we don't have duplicates. Also, please be sure to check in at least once a week. If I don't hear from you, I may cross you off the list. If you haven't done so already, be sure to add this forum to your favorites.

Yesterday, I finally put all my recipes cards in a holder since I started this swap in October. I got the goosebumps when I was done leafing through the pages and got them again typing just now. They are going to make one nice family heirloom to hand down to my grandchildren (that's if my daughter survives her teenage years). And I have used the recipes a few times. Not to mention, I've been digging through my old recipes and started making them again. I got away from cooking for awhile but with the way the economy has been and not working, I can't afford to eat out. So this swap helps me out in coming up with a variety of things to try at home.

I think we all have different ways of storing them. I know some ladies in the past used a recipe card box, one used a photo album, that you can slide them right in. I have an index card box. I picked up off of Freecyle a freestanding recipe card holder that I finally filled last night and they look amazing. The rest I put in a small photo album that they just slide right in.

I've seen plain wooden boxes that you can decorate at Michaels. I'm sure other craft stores would have them too, in the wooden section. I had bought one that had a a print on it and was on clearance and decorated over it. I made it for someone else. I want to make one for myself one of these days. I got a bunch of corks from wine bottles and sliced them. I hot glued them in rows on the top lid and along the rim. That way you could use push pins to hold the cards or notes in place. I kind of liked the way it looked. I never made any thing altered before. I would hold off on making them yet until sign ups are closed. OR, since, I'm going to limit the number of people to 10 to a group so the maximum will be 10 cards you have to make, if you do want to go ahead and get started. If we don't get 10 people, the extra cards will made a nice hostess gift to give someone if you join other swaps.

Hey Sally I just realized I told you the wrong name for the Family one - it is Aunt Bette's Almond Pound Cake - not that is matters but I was reading the posts and saw I had left out one of the main ingredients!

Hope you are having a great weekend...sending you ehugs!

Melissa, I put on the first page 5/5 as the last day for sign ups. You have until 5/21 to mail them in. So, if you're thinking about it.. maybe just one recipe? We have a good group going so far this time around, you might regret it when May comes around. You can always sign up and if by 5/5 you find you have too many other commitments, you can back out and not be considered flaking.

Mmmm, I live almond pound cake... Tastefully Simple has a mix that's really good, but really expensive.

I'm not sure if my flowers ever made it, I have never heard back from her. I haven't gotten them back, so I would assume no. Thats the only time I have ever been disappointed with a swap.

There wasnt very good communication.

Plus, I had some problems making the flowers because once i got started, i realized i really didn't have much to make flowers with, so i had to get a little creative. If someone else ever hosts a handmade flower swap, maybe a few month down the line, i would try again. Especially now that I have the cameo, there are a lot of really cool flower designs I could use.

They were nice. I was only 3 colors and the one, there were two people that didn't make any so I got mine back. Remember how she said to not to make them too small? And if you did, to add an extra one or two? I got two that she made that were less than an inch wide. The green flower on your recipe card was bigger!

I sent and received mine in a box... when i sent, i sent them very neatly packed in baggies that were labeled and then put those in bigger baggies for each of the groups. When i got my box back they were all just crammed in there, it took me a while to sort them all out and make sure all the flowers were there, i still think i might have been shorted... not necessarily on purpose, but just because they seemed to be so unorganized.

I agree, each and everyone of them, and I'm going to try to make at least one each week, maybe two if they have similar ingredients this summer. No more plugging in ingredients and trying to figure out what to make for dinner! My daughter likes to cook as well, and she's made a couple of the recipes too!

The front is up to date and getting full!

That's so neat that your daughter is making the recipes too. Kids are so much fun in the kitchen! I like your idea of trying a new recipe each week. Sometimes it is so difficult deciding what to cook (especially when you're trying to use what you have and not run to the store)!

I added your first two recipes, but I'm afraid someone already has signed up for salsa. So, if you can choose something else, that would be great. I'm curous, what are ding bats?

hello, sorry I've been mia, was at a swap then went out last night, so wasn't home yesterday.

Here's a picture of some of the cards swapped out last month. Someone asked me about the swap, so I scanned some of the cards. I thought since we have a lot of new people this month, I'd show everyone here too!

ok, not sure why my picture is not showing above. When I click on it, it takes you to my gallery. Laba, Sign-ups are open until 5/5. So, we might still get a couple more people signing up. Another of my sb friends was asking about the swap, so she might join. However, since I am limiting each group to 10 people, if you wanted to make 10 cards, you could go ahead and make them if you want. And if you had extras, I think I mentioned you could always save them as a hostess gift if you join in other swaps, or give to a friend. I was going to start on my Spanish rice card. I know exactly how I want to decorate that card and bought some bright papers the other day.

Those are fun recipe cards. The thing i love about handmade decorated recipe cards is that they are so cute you often want to take them out just to look at them. Then you start reading the recipes and begin to be inspired to cook. Love it!

I combined April and May so everyone had a little more time to work on them. We have a good group this round. So if you have the time to get started then I would say go for it so your not rushing through them last minute. I got busy this week but plan to work on mine this weekend. I had found the recipes I wanted to use while doing my spring cleaning 2 weeks ago, but now I have to find them again!

I don't see why not. The only thing in question is how many of each we will need. Since she is closing it at 10, I am making ten of the recipes I am doing. You can find the size the cards have to be and other information about them on the first page. Hope this helps.

So is there no color or theme that has to go with each category? I was wanting to start cutting my paper today, but wanted to double check first

Jessica, this swap is pretty open as far as design. You just have to embellish your recipe as you see fit (guidelines: 4x6 base with at least 3 embellies and your typed recipe). At least that's what I've gathered so far (Sally, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong!).

Ok thanks. I did last month's and it seemed like they had to be green, right? So I was just worried I was missing something.

Thanks

Laba, sorry about what you're going through right now. You've been stalking the recipe swap for the past couple months and you finally join us and then this. We'll keep is going as long as there's someone to swap a recipe or two with. We'll keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. As Johnniesgirl mentioned, there's a great group of ladies on sb.com if you need your spirits lifted or need some warm fuzzies from everyone.

It's funny. When I started in the groups/forums last year, I was never a social person and not much of mushy sentiment type. Now I need my daily dose and I give it when I can.

Thanks Melissa for answering Jessica's questions. The rules are pretty open on how you want to decorate.

Laba, I will keep you in my prayers. This is a great place to cry and laugh with others. I am a breast cancer survivor, and have found a lot of comfort in the forums. Good luck to you.

So glad you chose this group for your first swap here. And I'm so glad you know enough to mail in early enough, too. Thank you for that.

This what I like, activity!! I know it gets me motivated and hopefully others too! My daughter is going to a wedding tomorrow and will be gone most of the day so I intend on working on my cards. I'm finished with just about all my other swap and challenges. I already started on my cards, cutting and printing out the recipes. So just get to do the fun part of decorating them!

Finished my apple cake recipe card today and I'm liking it. I can't find my baked beans recipe. I'm bumming. It's not one of those you can fake or substitute. I punched out a bunch of green apples and inked them in red and they look so cute!

I received Pam's cards today. I haven't had a chance to open them. I just got back from having a tooth pulled, I'm waiting on a prescription to be filled, then I'll probably be zonked out for the rest of the day. Just wanted to let you know I got them.
