Cookie Exchange 2018

Recommended Posts

Can you ever have too many cookies -- or cookie recipes? We don't think so! In fact, we're happily launching our annual Cookie Exchange today and challenging you to dive into your recipe files for the best cookie recipes to share with your Scrap Girls family. First time to do this with us? It's easy, colorful, fun, and surprisingly low-calorie since we're just exchanging recipes, not actual cookies! Simply download the recipe template here and drop in your recipe text, then embellish it to your heart's content. Send your JPG to cookieexchange@scrapgirls.com by December 14. Sweet treats await you! Come be part of Cookie Exchange 2018!

 

Here's how to join in the fun:

·         Design a 4x6-inch recipe card (at 300 dpi) using mostly Scrap Girls products.  Use one of your favorite holiday cookie, candy, or sweet treat recipes - something "tried and true" is preferred.

  • All skill levels are encouraged to participate! If this is your very first time to try your hand at digital scrapbooking or if you’re a pro, please join in the fun!
  • ·         When you design your card, avoid putting any text within ¼ inch of the edges. Anything close to the edges can get cut off when the card is printed.
  • Place your name or Scrap Girls Forum username somewhere on the recipe card (small text is fine).
  • Save your design as a JPG file, with a file name that includes your name or Scrap Girls Forum user name (for example, my file might be called aprilshowers_gingercrinkles.jpg.) We want to know who made what!
  • Attach your card to an email and send it to cookieexchange@scrapgirls.com. Please include your first and last name in the email. A confirmation will be emailed to each person who sends a recipe card so they know their card was received. Please allow 48 hours for confirmation.
  • Cards MUST be received by Midnight (ET) on Friday, December 14.
  • Unfortunately, if you don't send in a recipe card, you will not be able to get a copy of all the cards. No exceptions. Your recipe card is your ticket to all the fun!
  • Please don’t sell or give away any of the finished cards on blogs, emails, etc. You may print some or all the recipe cards as a gift for someone you know personally, but wide-scale distribution or sale is not allowed, as per our commercial use terms, which can be read in full here.
  • You can submit more than one card, if you wish - the more the merrier!
  • Each participant will receive the links (via email - the same way that links come when you buy Scrap Girls products) to download the recipe card files.

Just so you know, you don't have to use the free template. It is just to make it easier!

Ohhhhh.. And I guess I didn’t read carefully!  I forgot about and missed the whole part about the template - I have all the others saved!  :)

Thanks April!   I was rushing and didn’t read closely because I thought I remembered what it was all about.
See, my Dad always said “Read directions FIRST!”   :)

I bought the ingredients I need for 2 kinds of cookies that we have been meaning to try the last 2 years...I have no excuses now! I know it will be torture, but I'll try them out and if they are good, I'll scrap them!

Well, Mother Nature decided that the girls needed yet another snow day (3rd one and it's only Dec 5th) so I'll get some baking done with my helper! With the federal holiday today, everyone is home!

Well, again!  I was wrong about the 15th, but glad to see it’s really the 14th!     I rushed to do one now hoping that April was still sleeping and when I came to check the email address I saw the 14th, so I still have time for more!  :)
