But first, let me just tell you a few things about Jo.

Jo does a little bit of everything but her specialty is hand lettering and custom design work.  I was thrilled to find her as I was looking for a designer to create my new logo/ design work that you’ll be seeing here on my site very shortly.  Here’s my new logo that she designed:

Jo also teaches beginning brush hand lettering and she has an awesome workbook in her Etsy store here, if you want to learn how to hand letter. I know that I would love to give it a try!

I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to connect with Jo and so excited that she’s going to be sharing fun stuff with us every month.

Now on to Jo and her first post today.

Free printable recipe cards

Hi guys! It’s Jo here from Zuer Designs. I’m very excited to be a part of The Creativity Exchange offering free printables every month! Printables are great, as you will always own the file, so you can print and reprint whenever you need to!

For my first contribution, I’ll be sharing a printable recipe card for you write down all those family recipes you may have accumulated over the holiday season. Some of you may have made New Year’s resolutions to eat healthier or to try new recipes. What better way than to write down those recipes so you can actually access them when it comes time to make them!

This 4″ x 6″  recipe card has colorful watercolor splashes, paired with black lettering. One of the cards includes watercolor grapefruit slices with ‘recipes’ in large lettering. You can use this card along with a clear acrylic recipe box, and place it right in the front of all your recipe cards. This acrylic recipe box that we used here  (affiliate link) is a great way to store your recipe cards and to showcase its pretty colors.

You will need to have a Adobe Reader installed to be able to print the files.  If you do not have Adobe Reader, you can install it here for free.

These recipe cards are intended to be printed double sided; one side with the ingredients and one with the recipe methods and directions. I would recommend printing on thick white card stock. The PDF file has the recipe cards already aligned, so you can print the ingredient side first and then after printing, turn them over and on the backside, print the method/directions side instantly and cut them out. 

You will find the link to each file directly below each image:

I hope that these recipe cards will inspire you to try out new recipes in 2016!  The recipe cards along with the box would be a great gift idea for Valentine’s Day too! 

Happy New Year! See you next month!

    Hi Jo

    What font did you use on these? I have terrible handwriting so I want to type on them but I want to find the font you used, for when I add the recipe titles!

    Thank you
