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 8/15/12.
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 9/1/12, 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.

Mail cards to

Ok, Laba has decided to drop out of the swap. So that leaves three of us. Hopefully we can get a couple more people. If not with just the three of us each doing 3 recipes, that's a total of 9 cards a piece, so, you'll have 9 cards in your box. I think I might take some pictures of the previous cards and post them in the gallery so people get an ideas of what to expect. They look awesome when they're all together.

I'll be camping this weekend, so I won't be around until Sunday evening.

What a bummer, it appears I missed the sign up for the August recipe card swap for some reason I thought I had until the 5th, I was thinking of a differant site.
Well have fun ladies, hope to be involved next month
Bye for now !

HI Ladies
Yipee, im glad the deadline has been extended. Sally , does that mean the postmark has been extened as well? I can commit to having mine in the mail by, friday, the 24th? I notice on your rules, it must be in your hands by the 22nd though so im not sure.
If so,,,,please sign me up for 2 spots,
Cooked on the grill and Summer Veggies. I would like to do all three but time is an issue and I would not sign up if I did not feel confident in completing in time.
If not , i do understand.
Thanks

Yes, yes yes.. I sent you a pm saying you could!! I'm going out of town tomorrow and might be going to the fair on Saturday, but should be home on Sunday..

I made a few changes to the front page. Extended sign ups to the 15th, cards due the 1st of Sept. You know I'm easy if they're a little late. I'm still recouping after last month. And then I got myself into another big swap.. I'm such a glutton for punishment!

So, Corry, I put you down for the grill and veggies and if you want the desserts, I can add you if you have time.

Mine are finished and I just need to get them to the Post Office. Will probably be Friday or Monday. Hubby is in the hospital in another city and I don't know where the post office is, gotta wait until I go back to work to mail. I am excited and looking forward to seeing everyone's recipes!

that's wonderful news! What better time than to scrap, now that you can relax and breath and have some time to yourself with no worries.

I got Corry's cards in the mail today. I haven't opened them yet.

Hey Jessica, yes.. Corry likes to get hers in early since she's mailing them from Canada and delivery is never guaranteed.

Hey Katie and Jessica, how are your cards coming along? Did you get them out in the mail yet?

Anyone have any ideas for next month's swap?

With the kids back in school and fall around the corner, I thought maybe crock pot recipes could be one category.

Hello, we can add Thanksgiving for next month's swap, not a problem and that will get us an early start as well, I won't be able to set the swap up yet. I probably will be w/o a computer for a couple of weeks, until I get money to fix the problem or pieces parts.

I still didn't get Katie's or Jessica's cards..


oh, and for dessert, I was thinking of a cheesecakes or pies.. maybe pies since we're doing Thanksgiving?

Hope you're feeling better. I've heard from a lot of people across the country this is a nasty strain of flu.

I have some bad news.. I lost Corry's recipe cards. I never even opened them. I had them on my coffee table and my daughter wanted to open them. I told her to clean the table off first but she never did, so I'm not sure what she did with them, if she opened them or what. I tore my house upside down, cleaned,organized all my craft stuff looking for it. I sat her down and told her I don't remember what the enveloped looked like to search for it. And she knew what it looked like. So I have a feeling she may have opened it and I'm going to search her room next, but its a disaster zone.

Jessica's cards came back to her and she remail they them but the never came. I will make extra cards to replace Corry's cards, since it's my fault. On the brighter side, being w/o a computer, I've been able to get a lot of work done around my house and rearranged some rooms and I have a new work area and I set a new system so this won't happen again. I do apogize.

I'm setting up next month's swap since I don't know when I'll be online again. I can borrow my friend's computer, but, it's not the same as using my own.
