FTR20 Top Chef Quickfire

Tell them dear, that if eyes were made for seeing,
Then beauty is its own excuse for being.

Catered Crop Top Chef Design Team

We have an extra, special Quickfire for you all today, compliments of our Top Chef designers, Guest Designer E.T., and . . . drum roll please . . . members of the Heartfelt Creations design team. I am thrilled beyond words to be able to share web waves with these amazing designers. So many beautiful creations in one blog post . . . it's like free admission into an art gallery.


We're all being inspired by E.T.'s soft, shabby chic creations, and we're following her recipe.


Playing with us at the Catered Crop "Follow-the-Recipe" linking party is a piece of cake! Here's how it works:
  1. Use any of the ingredients (themes, colors, techniques, shapes, etc.) in E.T.'s recipe to make your project. You don't have to use all the ingredients or the same brands. 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. Be sure to list your recipe or tell us what ingredient you used from the sample recipe.
  4. 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).

Your FTR20 recipe has so many yummy, luscious ingredients.

  • Colors – Soft pastels
  • Stamps and Stickers – Butterflies, flowers, sentiment
  • Color Mediums – crayolas, stamping ink,
  • Embellishments – ribbon, glitter, lace, rosettes, tag, rhinestones/gems, pearls, ribbon
  • Techniques – use your own handwriting, embossing, stitching, make a bookmarker
  • Tools –Die cuts, digital stamps
  • Themes –Shabby Chic
