Blog Tour Stop #2 – Scene in a Garden


Welcome Blog Tour travelers to Catered Crop. If you just came from Dacia's blog – weren't her projects amazing?!

For those of you who have never visited me before, I'm Linda McClain, and I get to take over driving the bus long enough to show you some projects with the stamp set, Scene in a Garden ($21.95, item 113246).


Isn't that a fun card? I love the sentiment – it makes me think of my independent little red head girl – always self confident and not afraid to be herself.


This is such a versatile set. It can be a pretty, delicate Spring card with the Sweet Always paper or, if you like me, and you love the Autumn season, you can make a lovely Fall scene.


Our textured cardstock make beautiful Gerber Daisies. Later, when you get over travel lag from visiting all the tour spots, I'll show you how to make these flowers with just tweezers and a stylus. I used the Designer Series Pattern pack (level I hostess benefit) for the base of the card – it's fun to mix and match the patterns.

And finally, a rerun of a card I posted earlier, here.


Scene%20in%20a%20Garden%204 Most of you probably have many more miles to go before you finish this blog tour adventure, so I'll send you right on your way to the next blog tour stop. There are 19 stops (you're at stop #2), but, of course, you don't have to visit them all in one sitting. You do need to finish them today, though, because the links will be deleted tomorrow. Stay on the tour for as many stops as you like, but be sure to come back here and leave a comment when you're ready to jump off. 

To be included in my drawing for a $20 gift certificate to purchase anything in the Occasions Mini Catalog, just leave a comment here telling me what your favorite product is in the mini catalog.

And remember, the Get Connected promotion is still in effect until April 30. Spend $40 on Occasions Mini Catalog products and choose any one item from the "Under $10" page in the Spring-Summer 2009 Idea Book & Catalog for free.

[Edited to add on 4/28/09 - Yes, the link to the next Blog Tour is gone – there's nothing wrong with your computer. But, that's okay, because more Blog Tours are coming. Stay tuned.]

As always, you can purchase any of these items on-line 24/7 at my website, here. Be sure to come back for more details on how to make these projects.

The fine print – because of Stampin' Up! rules that prohibit selling outside the United States, I'm only able to offer the gift certificate to my United States customers. For the rest of you, I'm so honored that you visit. I hope you enjoy the tour and are able to get lots of wonderful ideas.

  1. OOps! I forgot to say my favorite item in the Occasions Mini is Wagon Full of Fun, # 2 is Just Beachy, and while # 3 is Scene in a Garden – it will probably be the one I find more uses for.

    I loved your samples! I was particularly taken with the last of your cards. I think that was just beautiful.
    My favorite item from the mini catalog would have to be the scalloped oval punch and the set that coordinates with it.
