Introducing Digital Recipe Cards

Okay gals,  I have decided to try my hand at digital recipe cards.  Please be patient with me as I learn my way around photoshop!

The idea to start digital cards came about when I gave my daughter’s Discovery School teachers cookies with recipe cards attached.  A few of them wanted to recreate the gift for their kiddo’s teachers but did not have the time to recreate the recipe card itself.  They wanted fast and simple!

These recipe cards are sooo versatile!  You can print one and attach it to a gift or gift basket. Or, you can print several and use a 4x6 photo book (picture coming soon) to make a custom mini recipe book or book set for gifts to give to newly weds, college kids, friends and family.  The cool thing about using a 4x6 photo book is that the recipes are protected and safe from spills and drips, which always seems to happen on the recipe that you use the most!

Do you have a few recipes that friends and family keep asking you for?  Got any family favorites from Grandma?  Want to make a family cookbook that won’t cost an arm and a leg to print?  If so, this might be for you!


How to print your cards:  When you want to print several of your cards, simply click the card image to enlarge, right click and “save picture as” in a folder designated for your recipe cards.  Next, upload the cards to a photo printing site like York Photo and get 50 free photo prints plus up to 100 prints for just 4¢ each!  Use Code: YGP44 at checkout.  Another one is  Clark Color with the same type of deal.  Use Code: CPG4 at checkout.  There are a ton of photo print sites with great low prices.

Need a card fast?  Download your prints to Walgreens for 5¢ a print, Wal-Mart for 9¢ a print or CVS for 19¢.

Need a card even faster?!  Simply click the card image to enlarge, right click and "save picture as" in a folder designated for your recipe cards.  Open newly saved file, and print to your own printer.

I have to say, printing your recipes cards as a photo print really gives them a nice clean and sharp look. 

Well, I guess that is it for info.  Watch for recipes to be posted soon! 

Oh, wait, I am working on expanding the blog (still a work in progress) and would love for everyone to share their favorite recipes.  You can either spend me a finish card or send me the recipe and photo if you have one and I can create a card for you.
