No Stress to Distress Quickfire

Give your stress wings
and let it fly away.

We're in week two of our no stress zone to distress. Or, of you prefer, week two of taking out our stress with distressed paper techniques.

Grab your torn, wrinkled, tea-stained, ripped, crackled, and sanded papers and just about anything made by Tim Holtz or Seven Gypsies. Oh, yeah, and don't forget your distress inks and markers. We're getting down and dirty with distressed projects.

  • Just use the aging or distressing techniques or products somewhere in your project.
  • Include a link to us at Catered Crop or add our button, which you can grab on our sidebar or at our {button gallery}.
  • Link up and link often, but be sure you link up by 8:00 PM EST on Saturday, September 1.
  • Keep the party hopping by visiting the other players and leaving comments.
  • Check back with us on September 2 to see if you've won an opportunity to be a guest designer.

I love how the aging process uncovers layers of colors and textures, so, of course, when I find something beautifully aged or distressed, I do what any other responsible crafter would do. I pin it on Pinterest!  You'll find my Pinterest board for your inspiration and a few wonderful tutorials for aging paper here

You know I have the best design team in the whole wide world, right? Well, here's what the crafting chef's have cooked up for you with their aged and distressed techniques. Just click on the pictures to get all the details.




Congratulations to Tracy Ercole, Rosemary Dennis, and Mihaela. They won last week's challenge and were invited to join our Top Chef designers today.
