Catered Crop Linking Party (FTR10)

Last week I was excited to be picked as the inspiration for the Follow the Link Party on Catered Crop. I was given the opportunity to follow my recipe to make another card for the Top Chef Quickfire challenge. (You can see my inspiration card HERE.)

I recently found the digital images from Wax Fruit Company. I totally love these digis. Even though I have a zillion digital stamps, I just had to splurge and purchase a new one for the linking party. Isn’t this bunny CUTE??!!

Here’s how the Catered Crop "Follow-the-Recipe" linking party works. It is easy-peasy!

  1. Use any of the ingredients (themes, colors, techniques, shapes, etc.) in my recipe to make your project. Just pick a few ingredients and then add your own spices to cook up something uniquely yours.
  2. Add your project using the InLinz (froggy) button on the Catered Crop link party post to join the party.
  3. Keep the party going by clicking on some of the other entries and leaving a comment or two.
  4. Be sure to list your recipe or tell us what ingredient you used from the sample recipe.
  5. Don't forget to link back to this post or include the "I Followed the Recipe" button on your blog (see the side bar to the right).

Here's myFTR10 recipe:

  • Pattern Paper – stripes, miniprints
  • Colors – pastels
  • Stamps – go digital, bunnies, butterflies, and flowers
  • Color Mediums – Copic markers, paint, white pens
  • Embellishments – burlap, pinwheels, twine, buttons, eyelets, brads
  • Tools – sewing machine, Cropadile, die cuts
  • Techniques – sewing, distressing
  • Theme – Spring

For my project, I used the following from the recipe:

  • Pattern Paper – stripes, miniprints
  • Stamps – go digital, bunnies
  • Color Mediums – Copic markers, paint
  • Embellishments – pinwheels, twine, buttons, eyelets, brads
  • Tools – sewing machine, Cropadile, die cuts
  • Techniques – sewing
  • Theme – Spring

I hope you will join the link party. It is so easy to join and a lot of fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great week end!


Happy Easter!

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
