Recipe Swap Quickfire with Hearts


I've been to Hollywood, I've been to Redwood.
I crossed the ocean for a heart of gold.
~ lyrics by Neil Young


It's week two of our Catered Crop Recipe Swap and that means it's time for the Quickfire Round – where our Catered Crop Top Chef Designers and Guest Chefs dish up what they've made with the featured ingredient. We've got some delightfully delicious conversation-heart eye candy for you.

Our featured ingredient is Hearts and playing along is easy as A-B-C, 1-2-3, baby you and me!

  • Just use hearts 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 18.
  • Keep the party hopping by visiting the other players and leaving comments.

Need some ideas? Here's a whole gallery of creative ways to use hearts in 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.


Now, if this challenge hasn't won your heart over . . . there's more.

Pure Innocence!

Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is Heather Ellis, the artist behind the adorable Pure Innocence characters. You can find Heather's digital stamps at her Etsy store, here. And, for those who prefer to get ink on their fingers, you can get any of more than 120 clear stamps of her image over at My Favorite Things, here.

The randomly chosen winner at the end of our Hearts challenge will get to choose three Heather Ellis digital stamp characters from her Etsy shop.

Here's what our Chefs have prepared for you with Hearts and some of their favorite Pure Innocence digi characters! These are just thumbnails of their amazing work, so be sure to click their names to visit their blogs.
