Recipe Card Swap

Okay late last year a Cricut Circle member posted an ambitious project: a yearlong recipe card swap. She took signups for 10 people to submit 6x6 recipe pages every few months. She would sort and mail them back to us. I signed up as I love collecting recipes and thought it would be fun.

Well we have done 3 recipes so far and it has exceeded my expectations. The ladies are beyond nice and the cards are adorable. I haven't put them into an album yet as I was deciding if I wanted 1 big one or a couple of smaller ones.

Carts used: Block party, Country Life, All Mixed Up, From my Kitchen
Other supplies: stickles, Die Cuts with a view patterened paper, Mister Hueys mist
black cardstock, picnic patterned paper from stash, red pen, red ink

Salad: Jalapeno chicken salad
Carts used: County Life, Old West
Other supplies: Cuttlebug circles folder, October Afternoon and My Minds Eye patterened paper,
