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.


Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!

    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,

    It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

    I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

    I hope to have more to share soon.

    Catered Crop–Think Green Recipe Swap

    The latest Catered Crop recipe swap is up!  With Earth Day on April 22 and National Arbor Day on April 25, it’s the perfect time to Think Green. Just make a project that includes the color green and come join our party at the Catered Crop.For my project, I dug out a photo of of our sweet Summer was taken about a year ago.   Although I have been pretty lax about scrapbooking the last few years, I really wanted to make sure I created a page with this photo for my daughter’s scrap book.   We lost Summer, who was a member of our family for almost 15 years, in February so this page seemed especially important to me.After finding some paper that used a lot of green in it, I used lots of various odds and ends that I found in my craft room.  I mixed various stickers and die cuts from other projects to create this page.  As always, Linda has curated a fabulous Pinterest board to get our create mojo working.  (Don’t you just love her boards?)    You can go directly to Linda’s “Green”board by cl…
