View Full Version : Recipe Card Swap - Due Feb. 20th

12-27-2008, 04:26 PM
Swap Due Date - February 20th
Signup/withdraw date - January 20th
Number of Cards - 3 for 3
Number of participants - 30

Here is a swap for all you cooks out there! Dig out your Mom's old cookbook and get your three favorite recipes out that you want to share. Then cut a card that is 3 by 5 inches. Please use something thicker than just paper. Like a postcard or cut up a cereal box. Then decorate your card with paper, ribbon, glitter, buttons, eyelets, brads, whatever! It is not required that you use what I listed, just some ideas! Then paste your recipe on the card. If you handwrite it make sure it is legible.

You will be making three recipe cards and getting three in return
USA players please send a SASE
International please send a SAE with $3.00 for postage
Max of 30 players

When you sign up please tell me what recipes you are doing. If you don't know yet just tell me when you do know!

OK, I changed the rules to 3 by 5!!

Hi RoOskie. Doesn't look like people will be interested in this one.

12-28-2008, 05:42 PM
Moony, give it a chance and some time due to the holidays :) It will pick up after the New Year!!
I will sign up, but will come back and add my recipes to this post :)
1. Sheppard's Pie

12-28-2008, 08:39 PM
It may be more popular if the size was 3x5. I think this is more common.

12-28-2008, 10:44 PM
Paperscraps, is that recipe box size?? I like 3x5 as well because I have a turner that they will fit..:)

12-28-2008, 11:41 PM
Moony, I agree, people will come! Give it time. Also, yes the 3x5 cards will probably be more useful. I have noticed that is standard on this site!

12-29-2008, 07:03 AM
I am in. Can we make them 3x5inches please that way they will fit into my box.

I will make these

Double Lemon Cheese cake

Ok, this is exactly what i needed over the holidays when some of my fave christmas recipes went to no where land. May I please sign up.

01-13-2009, 05:44 AM
Can I join please?
My recipes would be:
1. Blueberry bran muffins
2. Frankie's cheesecake
3. Lasagne Italiano

01-14-2009, 08:32 PM
OK, all caught up. Please make a new response instead of editing your post. I kinda get lost.

01-14-2009, 08:42 PM
Someone asked me why some of the swap members have 4 recipes instead of 3. I thought I would answer it here in the thread because we have so many newbies :) Hope this is OK to do :)
Some people like to add an extra card, extra stamps, or little goodies to make art for the host as a thank you. This is not necessary, just something we like to do. :)

01-14-2009, 08:42 PM
My third is Egg and Parmesian Soup.

01-14-2009, 08:54 PM
Sunny, that sounds yummy

01-15-2009, 02:01 PM
Yes, Jad what you said is fine.

01-22-2009, 11:47 AM
mine are all done!!! here's a link to my gallery: http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?u=2408

you will notice in reading the ingredients that we cajuns love our garlic and onions. i don't think we cook anything that doesn't use those as a base along with our roux.

p.s. i subbed out the pop-ups with some bbq shrimp - it's not a bbq sauce-type of shrimp, mostly a grilled version with a lot of butter. i mean lots of butter.

01-22-2009, 12:11 PM
I am sorry that it has taken me so long to get back to you with my recipes. The 3 that I have chosen are: Chrunchy Praline Snack Mix, Chrunchy Berry Cobbler, and Potato Casserole. Thank you, Lili.

01-22-2009, 03:51 PM
Yum, they look fabulous. And even if I don't end up with one, I can still look in your gallery for the recipes. Butter = goodness! Great idea printing out the text and cutting it up like that. I may steal it.

01-25-2009, 05:02 PM
May I play too?------Mac&Cheese/w/ bacon---------breakfast casserole----chocolate cake supreme

02-02-2009, 11:38 PM
Finally my recipes are 1, cheesecake bars 2. pecan bars 3. fruit pizza

02-08-2009, 07:37 PM
Hi there -

I need to update my recipes. String bean soup is too long for the card, so instead I'm going to use Italian Sausage with Grapes.

Thanks! Can you pm me your address?

02-08-2009, 07:45 PM
Can you tell me if my cards arrived? I mailed them a couple weeks ago.

02-10-2009, 07:05 AM
Can you let me know if my cards have arrived yet as I mailed them ages ago. I know the mail takes quite a while to get over the water but I think they should be with you by now.

02-10-2009, 02:38 PM
Can I get the address to send out the recipes please, took day off to get them done :)

02-11-2009, 01:34 AM
Please pm me your address - mine are near completion.

02-11-2009, 03:18 AM
Mine are done! I ended up doing Butter Cake for my 3rd one. Moony, I just need your addy!

02-11-2009, 02:39 PM

02-11-2009, 08:09 PM
Thank you guys! I cant wait to get some yummy ones in exchange!

02-12-2009, 12:54 PM
Do any of you have Moony's address? She hasn't sent it to me, and I need to get these cards out right away so they will make it in time. Please pm it to me if you have it!

02-12-2009, 02:58 PM
I am so sorry for being late. My internet connected was down for a long time and I had no way of getting on.

So I marked received for all the cards I have so far.

02-15-2009, 06:59 PM
Hey Moony -

Glad you're back. I mailed my cards yesterday, so hopefully you'll get them soon. Here they are:
Ack. Apparently I forgot to scan the third one. :sad:

02-17-2009, 11:30 AM
My cards went postal..I will post them as soon as my son gets my scanner working :):) They ar in my memory, but I don't know how to transfer them..I'm such a dummy when it comes to computors:embarrassed:
This was a fun swap....

02-17-2009, 12:30 PM
i'll be mailing mine today. they went MIA for awhile, but i found them this morning.

02-24-2009, 04:03 PM
OK cards are packed up and will be at the post office this afternoon.

I would like to mention to the international people and that some of you forgot to provide postage for your returns. I will have to pay for them and I really don't have any money. But I think I can come up with some to pay for them.:(

02-24-2009, 04:56 PM
Uh ohhh, I remembered to put the $$ in my envie didn't I?

02-24-2009, 05:00 PM
I think you should email anyone who forgot. (Cause immediately my brain is going "uh oh..."). You shouldn't have to pay unless you've agreed to, and people do forget things sometimes. I forget things a lot!

02-24-2009, 08:38 PM
I hope I didn't forget to include postage.

02-24-2009, 10:51 PM
OH Moony, you should not have to pay postage:(

02-26-2009, 08:51 PM
Well I know I paid for a money order for $3 usd hope I sent it, can you please confirm that with me so I can rest or make sure i look for it and get it out to you.
