Catered Crop Linking Party FTR9

Young boys should never be sent to bed, they always wake up another day older.

Follow the Recipe

Thanks to Nana Campana (what a great name!), we all get to be a little boy crazy for our next linking party/challenge. Our design team was dazzled by all the funky and fun ingredients in her layout. We're excited to play with them and even more excited to see what all of you cook up with them. And, chefs, there are alligators! If there are in any University of Florida fans out there, here's your chance!

Isn't that crazy fun?! We get to do some distressing, make a ruffled ribbon strip, do some crazy stitching, thread our buttons with ribbons . . . and check out all that bling! Oh, I think I'm getting dizzy.
Playing with us at the Catered Crop "Follow-the-Recipe" linking party is easy-peasy! Here's how it works:
  1. Use any of the ingredients (themes, colors, techniques, shapes, etc.)  in Nana's recipe to make your project. You don't have to use the same brand names, use all the ingredients or even make a scrapbooking layout. Make whatever you like: cards, altered items, home decor, or, yes a layout. Just pick a few ingredients and then add your own spices to cook up something uniquely yours.
  2. Add your project using the InLinz (froggy) button below and join the party.
  3. Keep the party going by clicking on some of the other entries and leaving a comment or two.
  4. Be sure to list your recipe or tell us what ingredient you used from the sample recipe.
  5. Don't forget to link back to this post or include the "I Followed the Recipe" button on your blog (see the side bar to the right).

Here's your FTR9 recipe.

  • Pattern Paper – stripes, plaids and polka dots
  • Colors – kraft, red, green, blue, and yellow
  • Stamps – alphabets and stars
  • Color Mediums – stamping ink
  • Embellishments – bling, buttons, ribbon
  • Tools – sewing machine, distressing tools
  • Techniques – sewing, distressing, try threading your buttons with ribbons, ruffled paper/ribbon
  • Theme – Boys! and Alligators?!
  • Shapes – stars, circles, scallops, and swirls

I'm freakishly excited about our party's sponsor, DeNami Designs. There's always something fun going on over there: project ideas, free downloadable idea sheets, technique videos. And that's just on the store's home page. The DeNami Design Blog has an amazing, amazing design team with a really fun challenge coming up on April 5 and a blog hop on April 10 . . . more details to come!
