So Shapely Recipe Swap

You’re in pretty good shape for the shape you are in.
~ Dr. Seuss

The responses to our “For the Boys” challenge was amazing! It really was hard to narrow the winners to just a few. Congratulations to:

Your creations were the winners of our “For the Boys” challenge. You are invited to join our Top Chef designers in next Sunday’s Quickfire and grab the Winning Recipe button. Just contact me for all the details.

Catered Crop Recipe Swap Button

I use so many die cuts and punches that I actually broke a Big Shot die cut machine. That’s not easy. I panicked so much, that I ordered a Cuttlebug to be shipped overnight while my Big Shot was getting replaced. I kept the Cuttlebug as a backup. But then Life Style crafts sent me their Evolution die cut machine to try out – and I love it even more than my Big Shot.

Not everyone has a die cut machine (does anyone else have three?!), but nearly everyone has a few punches, if only a hole punch. So, grab your die cuts and punches – and let’s see what shapes you’re into.

  • 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, July 6.
  • Keep the party hopping by visiting the other players and leaving comments. (The InLinkz tool below will give you a blank to tell us which player’s site you visited and left some comment love.)
  • Check back with us on July 7 to see if you’ve won an opportunity to be a guest designer.

Die Cut Mosaic

Our fabulous designers will be back on Sunday, June 30, with their projects. Until then, here are a few ideas I’ve curated in my Pinterest board: To Die For – Die Cuts and Punches, where you can find the links to all these fabulous projects and more using punches and die cuts.

  1. I could not get the inLinkz tool to work properly. It would not link to the actual blog post. My photo entry is there. Here is the direct link to the entry on my blog:
