Sentiment-al Recipe Swap Quickfire

Gonna take a Sentimental Journey,
Gonna set my heart at ease.
Gonna make a Sentimental Journey,
to renew old memories.
~ lyrics by Bud Green, 1945

It’s week two of our Catered Crop Sentiment-al Recipe Swap and time to check in with you and our designers.

We’re taking a sentimental journey for this challenge. But, you don’t have to go as far back as 1945 and sing that old song with Doris Day. Just add a sentiment to your card. Make your words the focus of your card. I’ve got my reading glasses ready.

  • 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 14.
  • 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 September 15 to see if you’ve won an opportunity to be a guest designer.

I’ve curated a few ideas for you in my Pinterest board: Sentiment-al, and our fabulous designers are here today to share their projects. Just click on their projects to visit their blog and get more details.

Cheryl gave us two gorgeous cards that really pluck my heart strings.

Flower Power Quickfire

Love is the flower you've got to let grow.

Catered Crop Recipe Swap Button

The power of our Flower challenge must be working. I had to do a lot of driving in Central Texas this week for my job. At the beginning of the week there was just a sprinkle of bluebonnets, but by the end of the week the hillsides were covered with them. It's a beautiful time to be in Texas.

It's week two of our Flower Power challenge – time to check in with you and our designers. 

  • Just include flowers somewhere in your project – as a stamped image, in your pattern paper, or as an embellishment – anyway you choose.
  • 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, March 30.
  • 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 March 31 to see if you've won an opportunity to be a guest designer.

Here are a few ideas I've curated in my Pinterest board: Flower Power. If you click on the inspiration board above, it will take you to the Pinterest board where you can get to the original inspiration and a few tutorials.

    I am crazy excited to welcome Cheryl Gorka as our newest Catered Crop Designer. I've been a huge fans of hers for ages. Every card she makes is a masterpiece – with coloring, layers, her choice of embellishments . . . .  Well, thankfully, you'll get to see for yourself as she joins us full time.
