Catered Crop - America’s Dairyland

After I created my first card for the Catered Crop recipe swap, “Map It”, I had another idea for a card and I just had to make it.

I stumbled across a link that allows you to print maps of each state.  After playing around with the setting on my printer, I printed a map of Wisconsin, my home state, at my printer’s 4x6 setting on white card stock.

I added a heart punched out of scrap paper and added it to the part of where I live.   Cute and easy – my favorite kind of card.

Don’t forget to stop by the Catered Crop to link up your “Map It”creation.

    What a great card using a printed map. I had a hard time finding "map" thing from my stash. If I knew the like you gave earlier, I'd love to use it on my project. Thanks for sharing. Hugs, May

    I know this is an older post, but I just came across it and I love it! The reason being is that I'm from Wisconsin as well. I couldn't tell if you were marking Milwaukee as your hometown or not, but that's where I'm from. Let me know if you are from the same area!

    Peace & Luv,

    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…

    Catered Crop–Seeing Red

    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…
