Hello everyone and welcome to the February Control Freaks Blog Tour! This month’s tour features projects from the 2013 Spring Catalog. If you are following the tour you have arrived here form the very talented Connie Babbert’s blog. She always has such awesome projects doesn’t she?! I have two projects to share with you today. The first one is a journal an the second one is an album with a matching box.

First up is the journal. I found these white journals in Target in the dollar section a few months ago and I thought it would be perfect to decorate with some Stampin’ Up! goodies! The background is created using some So Saffron Card Stock and the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. On top of that is one of the Tea Lace Doilies with a piece of Early Espresso that I cut out with the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlit. The pinwheels are made from Tea for Two Designer Series Paper. I cut out the squares from the paper and then cut down from the corner and used my Bone Folder to curl them a little. A quick punch with the 1/16″ Circle Punch and a Metallic Brad and they are done. They are held in place with Some Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Made for You Stamp Set and is stamped in Early Espresso, punched out with the Large Oval Punch and backed with a piece of Island Indigo that is punched out with the Scallop Oval Punch. A nice fun spring journal that you could use to jot down thoughts or give as a nice gift to a friend.

Next up is the album and matching box. The box is made with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool using Not Quite Navy and Daffodil Delight. The top of the box is decorated with a background of Daffodil Delight that I stamped with the Netting Background Stamp in Daffodil Delight. A piece of Crumb Cake is cut out with the Oval Collection Framelits Dies. On top of that is a piece of paper from the Parker’s Patterns Designer Series Paper that I flagged on both ends. A piece of Very Vanilla is stamped with the Basic Label Single Stamp in Cajun Craze and cut out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits Die. The year is stamped in Island Indigo using the Memorable Moments Stamp Set and backed with a piece of Marina Mist. Two Neutrals Brads are on either side. The SF is stamped in Not Quite Navy from the Morning Post Alphabet Stamp Set and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The cover also uses Parker’s Prints Designer Series Paper and the Basic Label Stamp. A piece of Very Vanilla is stamped with the image from the Oh, Hello! Stamp Set in Crumb Cake and cut out with the Ovals Collection Framelits Dies. The California is stamped in Not Quite Navy with the Simply Serif Mini Alphabet. A Silver Basic Designer with some Very Vanilla 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon Ribbon threaded and  is adhered with some Mini Glue Dots in the upper left. Some Natural 7/16″ Ribbon Trim holds it together.

All of the pages inside use Parker’s Prints Designer Series Paper too. On the first page I stamped the tickets from the That’s the Ticket Stamp Set in Not Quite Navy and punched them out with Ticket Duo Builder Punch. On the second page the sister is from the Amazing Family Stamp Set and is stamped in Cajun Craze. On page three I used images from the By the Tide Stamp Set and they are stamped in Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler.

Control Freaks December Blog Tour!

freakwelcome

Hello there! How are all of you people doing? I’m doing great, and how could I not be?! It’s time for this month’s Control Freaks December Blog Tour featuring Winter Fun! I am the first stop on the tour but you also may have arrived here from the über talented Connie Babbert’s blog. Didn’t she have some amazing projects?! I have two projects for you this time. One is a masculine box with a lodge feel and the other is a fun card that would be good for just about anything.

First up we have the box. I used one of the Kraft Gift Boxes. These are great item from the Annual Catalog. They are great to decorate with some Designer Series Paper and embellishments. I adhered some paper from the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack around the sides. I like the plaid pattern in Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso and Early Espresso. On the top of the box I made a paper bow from some Cherry Cobbler Card Stock. It’s 3/4″ wide and if you use your Bone Folder to “curl” it a little it tends not to crease when you make the bow. On top of the bow I stacked three of the Naturals Designer Buttons, adhering them together with Mini Glue Dots. For the tag I stamped an image from the Bring on the Cake Stamp Set in Early Espresso on a piece of Very Vanilla. I punched out a piece of Cherry Cobbler with the 1″ Circle Punch, scored it down the center and adhered it to the tag with some Sticky Strip. A quick punch through the top and some Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine to attach it to the bow and you’re done. Quick and easy, great for a masculine treat!

Next up we have the card. The base of the card is Whisper White Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Pool Party with the Northern Flurry Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the background. A piece of paper from the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack is flagged and adhered to the background. The stamped image is form the Wonderful Winterland Stamp Set stamped in Basic Black. I colored it in with Island Indigo, Pool Party, Blush Blossom, Soft Suede, Sahara Sand and Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Write Markers. The 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch is used to punch it out and a piece of Pool Party cut out with the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlit Die backs it. They are mounted to each other and to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is form the Itty Bitty Banners Stamp Set and is stamped in Island Indigo. I cut it out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensional pieces. I love the little girl and bunny sharing some cocoa, a friendly little card for someone special.

Control Freaks November Blog Tour!

Hello everyone and welcome to the November Control Freaks Blog Tour featuring Stampin’ Up! products. This month our theme is Christmas projects. I’m the first stop on the tour this month! You may also have gotten here from Robin Spinner’s blog. Didn’t she have some awesome projects?! Make sure that you follow along and see all of the projects on this month’s tour. I made 4 projects for you to see!

The first one is a card that I actually made back in August. I saw a tag that Shelli (Stampin’ Up! CEO) had posted on her blog and I loved it. I wanted it to be a card so I made the necessary adjustments. The base of the card is Early Espresso Card Stock. The large flagged pieces are a piece of Cherry Cobbler embossed with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. On top of that is a piece of Candlelight Christmas Designer Series Paper. I stamped some images from the Affection Collection Stamp Set in Crumb Cake and Cherry Cobbler that I cut out with the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies and then layered the Heart of Christmas Stamp, stamped in Early Espresso, on top. I stamped it again and cut out and flagged the middle of the greeting and adhered it to the stamped piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The pinecone and pine needles are from the Watercolor Winter Stamp Set and are stamped in Early Espresso and cut out with my Paper Snips and also adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The star is punched from a piece of Champagne Glimmer Paper with the Merry Minis Punch Pack. A small piece of  1/4″ Very Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon (Retired) is folded and adhered under it. A piece of Crumb Cake is also cut out with the Window Frames Collection Framelits and I pierced the edge with the Festive Paper Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool. The top frame and bottom frame are adhered to each other and the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the layering and the colors, not traditional but warm and delicious!

My next project is a place card for Christmas dinner. I took a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock and used the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies to partially cut out a piece. I then scored it and folded it. A piece of Lucky Limeade cut out with the same dies and pierced with the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack creates a nice base for the ornament. The ornament is stamped in Raspberry Ripple with the Keepsake Ornaments Stamp Set and cut out with the Holiday Ornaments Collection Framelits. The frame and the ornament are mounted to the Very Vanilla base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Happy Christmas is from the More Merry Messages Stamp Set and is stamped in Lucky Limeade. I flagged the ends and adhered it to the ornament. My name is stamped in Raspberry Ripple using the Simply Serif Mini Alphabet and my Stamp-a-ma-jig. It’s a quick and easy way to add some personality to your holiday place settings.

For my third project I made some cute little gift tags. The main piece of the tag is created using the Scallop Envelope Bigz Die. I folded the top and bottom and adhered them to each other and then just the one side. I punched a piece of Gumball Green out with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and attached them to the tags with some 3/16″ Metallic Brads. A piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine is wrapped around the two brads to make the loop. The first tag uses the Make a Mitten Stamp Set and the Mitten Builder Punch. The mittens are stamped in Primrose Petals and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the More Merry Messages Stamp Set and is stamped in Primrose Petals too. I used the Small Heart Punch and the Owl Builder Punch to create the hearts that are punched out in Gumball Green.

The next tag has trees and ornaments that are punched out with the Merry Minis Punch Pack in Primrose Petals and Gumball Green. They are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting on this tag is form the Seasonal Sayings Stamp Set and is stamped in Primrose Petals.

The last Tag uses the images and greeting from the Joyous Celebrations Stamp Set. The reindeer and greeting are stamped in Primrose Petals and the oval, which is punched out with the Extra Large Oval Punch, in Gumball Green. The border on each side is from the Make a Mitten Stamp Set and is also stamped in Gumball Green. All of the tags have a little card that has a piece of Primrose Petals punched out with the Mitten Builder Punch and the to and from is from the Chock Full of Cheer Stamp Set. The best thing about these tags is that they also fit a gift card inside! They also look like little manila envelopes!

For my final project I made a card holder. The images are from the Scentsational Season Stamp Set. The gingerbread men are stamped in Soft Suede and the mugs are stamped in Cherry Cobbler. I used the coordinating Holiday Collection Framelits Dies to cut them out. The gingerbread men have a piece of Cherry Cobbler that is punched out with the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch and embossed with the Argyle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. They are adhered to pieces of Lucky Limeade that is punched out with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. The mugs have pieces of Soft Suede that I punched out with the same scallop punch and embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. They too are adhered to the same size Lucky Limeade circles. All of the images are adhered to the circle pieces with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I used some Sticky Strip to adhere them to the pegs and some hemp twine gives them something to hang from. This is a simple project and a great way to display your holiday cards!

I hope that you enjoyed my Christmas projects form this month’s Control Freaks Blog Tour. Next on your tour is the awesome blog of Patty Bennett. She has some great stuff in store for you to take a look at! Thank you very much for visiting me and I hope that your holidays are magical and filled with happiness!

Control Freaks October 2012 Tour!

Welcome to the Control Freaks October 2012 Tour! You are probably arriving here from LeeAnn Greff’s blog! Didn’t she have some awesome projects?!?! This month’s theme is “The Men in our Lives” featuring masculine projects. The men in my life would be my dad, my brother… oh and me! LOL! I love to do masculine projects, there are some great stamp sets that you can use. I have featured some of my favorites, Postage Due, Fine Feathers, Nature Walk and You’re Amazing. I have two 3D projects to share with you today. The first one is a box and the second one is a banner. We’ll start off with the box.

The bottom of the box is Soft Suede and the top is Night of Navy. I used my Simply Scored Scoring Tool to create it. A great tip to remember is when you go to make the lid move your card stock ever so slightly over to the right for each side. It really helps the lid fit much better. I used a piece of burlap for the background, it gives it a nice rough feel. The greeting is from the You’re Amazing Stamp Set and is stamped in Night of Navy. I used the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies to cut it out and the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and the Paper-Piercing Tool to pierce around the edge. I scored the tabs and adhered them to the sides of the lid with Sticky Strip. The two tickets poking out are stamped in Soft Suede using the Take a Ticket Wheel and cut out with my Paper Snips.I flagged a piece of Night of Navy and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the burlap. Some Champagne Glimmer Paper is punched out with the Merry Minis Punch pack and they too are adhered to the flagged piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The box is not overly complicated and I think makes a nice place for your dad or brother’s birthday gift!

The banner contains a lot of elements! The base of each banner consists of a piece of Not Quite Navy that is flagged on the bottom and a piece of Crumb Cake that is also flagged on the bottom and the embossed using the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. All of the letters are stamped in Not Quite Navy using the Morning Post Alphabet and cut out with my Paper Snips. On the first and last banners we have a piece of Very Vanilla that is stamped using the Travel Journal Builder Wheel in Soft Suede and then flagged on both ends. A thin piece of Not Quite Navy is flagged and placed on top of that. The stamped image is from the Postage Due Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Suede and punched out with the Postage Stamp Punch. The rosette is made from First Edition Designer Series Paper and has a piece of Not Quite Navy and Champagne Glimmer Paper punched out with Circle Punches. The second and sixth banners have a piece of Soft Suede punched out with the 1″ Square Punch and pierced around the edge using the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack. A piece of Not Quite Navy is flagged on each end and pierced along the middle and placed on top of that. The stamped image is from the Fine Feathers Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Suede and cut out with my Paper Snips. In the upper corner is a piece of Not Quite Navy that is punched out with the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch and pierced around the edge. The bee is from the Nature Walk Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Suede and cut out with my Paper Snips. The third and fifth banners have a piece of Not Quite Navy that is punched out with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch. The stamped image is from the Postage Due Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Suede and punched out with the Postage Stamp Punch. The 3D star is cut from a pattern and scored using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool, folded and mounted on a few Stampin’ Dimensionals. Finally the center banner has a piece of Not Quite Navy  that is punched out with the Decorative Label punch and an oval is pierced in the center. The bird is from the Language of Friendship Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Suede on Soft Suede and punched out with the Bird Builder Punch. In the upper left corner is a Vintage Faceted Button with a piece of Champagne Glimmer Paper in the center and a piece of Not Quite Navy cut out with the Bitty Banner Framelits Dies, cut in half and adhered underneath.

Control Freaks September 2012 Tour!

Hello everyone and welcome to the September Control Freaks Tour featuring Fall projects! I’m so excited to be a part of this incredibly talented group. If you have arrived here from the tour you have just come from Jason Casper’s site. Didn’t he have some great projects?!?! This is my first tour with the Freaks, how awesome is that?!?! I’m a little excited, can you tell?!?!

The first project I have to show you is a card. Not just any card but a 3D window card that folds flat so that you can still mail it. The base of the card is Always Artichoke Card Stock. I used a piece of Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper to frame the window and I also used a piece down the right side. The images in the back are from the Spooky Bingo Bits Stamp Set and are stamped in Basic Gray, Basic Black and Early Espresso. I also cut one of the tombstones out and adhered it with a Stampin’ Dimensional. The image on the piece of Window Sheet is form the Toxic Treats Stamp Set and is stamped in Jet Black Staz-On. The little moon in the upper right corner is made with Tangerine Tango and the 1″ Circle Punch. For the greeting I used the Seasonal Sayings Stamp Set stamped in Tangerine Tango and backed with a piece of Basic Black.

The next project I have to show you is a Halloween Banner. The base of all of the banners is Basic Gray, that I flagged the ends on, with a piece of Crumb Cake that is embossed with the Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The image on the first banner is from the Toxic Treats Stamp Set and is stamped in Basic Black on Pumpkin Pie and cut out with the Labels Collection Framelits Dies. Some Basic Black is cut out using the Paper Doily Large Sizzlits Die. I cut out a piece of Basic Gray, flagged the ends and used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack to pierce the edges. All of the pieces are adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The next three banners all have a rosette made with Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP and my Simply Scored. The letters are form the Broadsheet Alphabet Stamp Set and are stamped in Basic Black and punched out with the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch. The flagged pieces of Pumpkin Pie are stamped with the Border Banter Stamp Set and are backed with pieces of Basic Black that are punched out with the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle punch and paper-pierced around the edges too.

The last project I have to show you is a wreath. I used the Autumn Accents Bigz Die to cut out all of the leaves from Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and More Mustard Card Stock. They are all embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I used a hot glue gun and the Silicone Craft Sheet to attach them to the wreath. The greeting is from the Seasonal Sayings Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Suede. I flagged the ends and paper-pierced the top and bottom. The acorns are from the Wonderfall Stamp Set and are stamped in Soft Suede and adhered to the back of the greeting with some Sticky Strip. The greeting is then adhered to the leaves with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I hope that you enjoyed your stop here on the Control Freaks September Tour. Thanks so much for visiting. Now click below to hop on over to Yvette Ashe who is your next stop on the tour and see what fun projects she has in store for you! Enjoy!!

Freaky Monthly Challenge!

A very good Sunday Morning to you all. I spent most of the day catching up on some creativity, which is definitely my favorite way to spend a Saturday! I have some amazing news to share with you all. About a month ago I got a very exciting email Lisa, her blog is Get Your Stamp On! The email asked me if I would like to become a member of The Control Freaks!! I couldn’t believe it! WOW! To be asked to join such an amazingly talented group was beyond exciting. I of course accepted and today I am posting my first card for the Freaks. They have a Freaky Monthly Challenge amongst the members and here is my card for August. The base of my card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. I used a piece of the new Core’dinations Card Stock in Early Espresso and embossed it with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The fun part is when you use the new Stampin’ Sanding System to sand the card stock and reveal the lighter inside layer. A little rub with the Core’dinations Dust Buddy and I adhered it to the card with SNAIL. The next layer is a piece of World Spectacular Designer Series Paper backed with a piece of Very Vanilla. The layer on top of that is another piece backed with some more Very Vanilla. I used the ticket stamp from the You’re Amazing Stamp Set and stamped them in Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler and Island Indigo. The Ticket Duo Builder punch is used to punch them all out and I used some 2-Way Glue to adhere them to the DSP. Another piece of World Spectacular DSP is mounted to the ticket layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The ballon image is also from the You’re Amazing Stamp Set and is stamped in Island Indigo and cut out with my Paper Snips. The greeting is from the Blue Ribbon Stamp Set and is stamped in Early Espresso and also cut out with Paper Snips. They are both mounted to the card with more Stampin’ Dimensionals. I’m really happy with the card and hope that the Freaks and you enjoy it. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
