Sooo … wanna know how I’m now organizing and keeping my recipes these days? With my new 6×8 Project Life® album – of course!
We are pleased to introduce something NEW that we’re doing around here. We’re giving you the digital files for Project Life Recipe Cards! For free. Because we love you. And we selfishly wanted them for ourselves, too. *wink*
You know I’m a fan of dedicated title cards to “announce” the album, so of course we have these for you, too.
Every time I post a new recipe, we’ll share the digital cards in 2 different formats – PDF and JPG. The PDF pages are set up so you can simply print at home (white cardstock is great), trim the cards, and slip them into your album. The JPG files are totally ready to be uploaded to your favorite photo printer, just as you would do with any photos. Then you slip those right into the album (the 3×4 cards are on a single 4×6 print so you simply cut down the middle).
So far in 2014, I’ve shared a few recipes on the blog as part of my resolve to bring more balance back to the blog – Kotleti, Zucchini & Carrots, and just yesterday … Valentine’s Pretzel Hugs. These digital cards are already hanging out on our Freebies page – ready for you to download, print, and enjoy right now!
A FEW NOTES
1. ALBUMS. These 6×8 albums are available in several colors and can now be found in many retail locations (large & small retailers). We’re also getting pretty close to opening our online shop as well and should have all the 6×8 albums and pages available right here, so stay tuned for that.
2. COLOR CODE. You may notice that we have a fun color code in place for these freebie recipe cards. There’s a different color for each of the 4 main categories – Main Dish, Side Dish, Soup & Salad, Dessert.
3. BLANK CARDS. Want to make your own recipe cards that match all of this cuteness? No problem. We’re sharing those digital files, too. So you can either print out the “blank” cards and handwrite on them or you can add your text in your favorite photo-editing software (ex – Photoshop Elements) first, then print them out.
4. PRINTING. I think printing on white cardstock for this project is just great!
5. FONT. Want your font to match the font we used? It’s called Open Sans. It’s open source and free and found right here.
6. MORE RECIPES. I’ve heard some of you are missing the “old” recipes that we took off the site with our recent big website makeover. What if I told you we’ve been working on a very special Valentine’s gift for you? I’m just saying … check back. More love coming right up.
Oh, and one more thing because … have I mentioned we love you? We whipped up a Meal Planner page that coordinates with all of this. It’s found on the Freebies page when you click on “Download Recipe Set”. This PDF all ready to print and trim to be a 6×8 page that slips right into the 6×8 page protector. You might want to keep these in your little album with the recipes. This is so helpful for putting together the general plan of a week’s worth of meals.
