Remembering 2013

The Catered Crop recipe swap for the entire month of January is “Remembering 2013”.  We’ll eventually get back to our regularly scheduled program . . . but for the month of January, here’s our how Catered Crop Recipe Swap will roll.

  • Create a blog post, online gallery (Pinterest,,, etc), or online album (Facebook, etc) with your favorite projects from 2013. Just use the Inlinz button on the Catered Crop blog  to link  to that blog post or gallery.
  • If you’re not a blogger, just got started and don’t have a full year of projects yet, or just don’t have the time to review, select and write about your favorite projects, that’s okay. We don’t want to leave you out. Just give us a link to your one favorite project of the year. But, please, for this challenge only, give us only one link. (We don’t want 12 links by everyone who participates.) For this challenge it’s absolutely okay to back link to an older post.
  • Include a link to us at Catered Crop or add our button, which you can grab on our sidebar or at our {button gallery}.
  • Be sure you link up by 8:00 PM EST on Saturday, February 1.
  • Keep the party hopping by visiting the other players and leaving comments.
  • Check back on the Catered Crop blog on February 2 to see if you’ve won an opportunity to be a guest designer for our next challenge as the best of the best.



I created this scrapbook page documenting the tea time my daughter and I enjoyed at Disney World.   I just love looking at this photo and remembering the fun we had.

I love both of these cards because I stepped outside my usual comfort zone of using a colored image as a focal point.  I love how both of them turned out.

Once again, some of my favorites are projects where I stepped outside my comfort zone.  This  first card uses one of my favorite stamps from Great Impressions Stamps.      The second card was for the Twine Love recipe challenge at the Catered Crop.

Thank you for taking the time to review 2013 with me.  It was fun putting together this post and looking at my projects for the year.   I hope you will take a moment to join the Catered Crop “Remembering 2013” recipe swap.


I hope that I will be able to craft more often starting in February.   The last few months have been especially hectic and I have not been able to spend any time in my craft room for weeks.   Hmmmm….  I think I might kick off the month with some blog candy.  I’ll have to see what I can put together.


Have a great week! Thank you for stopping by!

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…

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…
