Catered Crop Recipe Challenge FTR2

You wouldn't have won if we'd beaten you.
            ~ Yogi Berra


Congratulations to all the participants of the first Catered Crop Follow-the-Recipe challenge. You are the blue ribbon, Crème de la Crème of paper crafters. Risa West was the very first entry of the very first Catered Crop challenge, and now I'm pleased to announce she's our very first winner. Her card is adorable, beautifully crafted, uses several ingredients from the sample, and adds a lot of new, fun ingredients for the next challenge.

So, catered crafters, your inspiration for today's challenge, FTR2, is Risa's winning card.


Simply use any of the ingredients or techniques in her recipe to make your project (scrapbook page, card, home decor, etc.). The challenge is not intended to promote any one product or make you go buy more. So, remember, you don't have to use the same brand, just match any ingredient as closely as you can.


  • Paper – Bazzill and PaperTrey Ink
  • Stamps – My Cute Stamps
  • Inks – Memento Tuxedo Black and Copic Markers
  • Tools – Nestabilities Petite Circle Die and Decorative Elements Eyelet Circle Die; Stampin' Up!'s Window Tab Punch; Martha Stewart Fancy Scallop Border Edge Punch; Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
  • Embellishments – Ribbon, Mini Roses
  • Glitter – Extra Fine Glitter
  • Techniques – Air Brush, Masking

Yes, there's a prize! The winning entry get a "I Baked it Best" button to put on their blog and will be the inspiration for the next challenge. It will also be permanently featured on the Catered Crop Challenge Home Page and the Catered Crop Facebook Fan Page. But, there's more. I'm so honored that Risa, Rachel, Renee, Mary Frances, Rebekka R, Elizabeth H, and libeeti, participated in the last challenge that I'm sending them some of my samples of Baker's Twine from The Twinery. I still have some left, so the winner of this challenge will also get one of the 8, 15-yard samples of twine.


The rules are simple and they're provided in more detail at the Catered Crop Challenge Home Page. Just use any of the ingredients in Risa's sample. It helps us pick a winner if you list your recipe or tell us what ingredient you used from the sample recipe. Since our challenge is new and growing, I really do appreciate it if you link back to this page or include the "I Followed the Recipe" button on your blog (see the side bar to the right).
