Recipe Swap Quickfire. Fit to Print!

Books are a uniquely portable magic.
~ Stephen King


It's week two of our Catered Crop Recipe Swap and you know what that means! It's time for the Quickfire Round – where our Catered Crop Top Chef Designers, Guest Chefs and Celebrity Chefs dish up what they've made with the featured ingredient.


Our featured ingredient is Print and playing along is easy as A-B-C.

  • Just use newsprint, book print, script, or just about anything with words somewhere in your project.
  • Include a link to us at Catered Crop or just add our button, which you can grab on our sidebar or at our new {button gallery}.
  • Link up and link often, but be sure you link up by 8:00 PM EST on February 4.
  • Keep the party hopping by visiting the other players and leaving comments.

Need some ideas? Here's a whole gallery of creative ways to incorporate print into your projects. You can click on the inspiration board below to go to a Pinterest board with the sources of these pictures and more gorgeous ideas and brilliant tutorials.

There's more!

Our Sponsor for this challenge is theTexana Designs, which makes me happy as a tick on a fat dog. Texana Designs' rubber stamp images with a Texas flair are all designed by native Texan artists. But, don't reckon ya'll have to have a Texas twang to play with their stamps – there's a whole shootin' match of fun images to suit yer fancy. And, there's a whole rodeo of fun at the Texana Blog and Texana Facebook page.

Be sure to check out the Texana Designs store because one lucky player will win a $25 gift certificate to go shopping!

Snuggle into your comfy reading chair. Here's what our Chefs have prepared for you with Print! These are just thumbnails of their amazing work, so be sure to click their names to visit their blogs.
