2015 Cookie Recipe Card Exchange

Yesterday, 10:14 AM


It's time for our 10th Annual Cookie Recipe Card Exchange and you're invited! We have a special, free recipe card template to help you get started. We love cookies, and we love getting new cookie recipes to try, so all participants will receive a sweet little ScrapGirls Boutique gift just for joining in.

Here's how to join in the fun:

  • Design a 4x6-inch recipe card (at 300dpi) 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 ScrapGirls 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 body of your 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 11th.
  • 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!
  • We ask that you not post your recipe card in your Gallery, Facebook, or anywhere else until the swap is over. This way, we can all be surprised by the cards we get! You can post your own card in the Gallery or anywhere else anytime after December 13th.
  • 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!

On or before December 13th, each participant will receive the links (via email - the same way links come when you buy Scrap Girls products) to download the recipe card files.Participants will need to include their First Name, Last Name and email address for us to send them the recipes.

Forum Game: Twister

20 October 2015 - 06:56 AM

Right Hand Red, Left Foot Blue, it's time for  a game of virtual Twister!

First, take a virtual spin on the spinner. This is just an image of the spinner, it doesn't really spin. Feel free to use a real spinner if you have the game stashed in a closet!




  • Now choose a spot on our twister board using the coordinates below.
  • Each coordinate can only be used once.
  • Someone else must post before you can take another turn. You can use your four guesses all at once if you'd prefer.
  • We'll start with 4 turns per person, but I may add more turns if necessary to complete the game. :D
  • There are five prizes hidden under certain coordinates.
  • You can only win this game one time.
  • There aren't prizes hidden under the chalkboard, so if you can't see at least part of the dot, the prize isn't there.
