Control Freaks Blog Tour - Christmas in November!
November 20, 2012
WELCOME to the November 2012 Control Freaks Blog Tour!!!
We are excited to bring you delightful
in the tour this month!!
You have probably joined me after visiting Justin Krieger's fabulous blog, and you can click on the "next blog" link at the bottom of the post to continue on the tour.
My first project was a card we made in my recent Punch Art Class, and was inspired by Jackie Topa. I have the punch pieces shown below for you ... don't you just love Santa coming out of the Chimney and the Bag of Gifts???
The featured punch here is the Ticket Duo Punch (item #126883, pg 182 Stampin' Up! catalog)... it makes both the bricks for the chimney and the little gifts in Santa's sack!
My 2nd project for you today is another class sample.. we made this one last week in class.. The Medallion stamp makes a great wreath when you die cut it with the coordinating Floral Frames Framelits, and then use a 1-3/4" circle punch to punch out the center!!
Class attendees made all 3 card versions, featuring the Candlelight Christmas DSP.
Don't forget that you can color your sheet of Rhinestones with sharpees and then decorate your project with COLORED RHINESTONES!!!
You can place your order by clicking any of the shop online buttons on my blog.
Enjoy the rest of the tour as you visit Yvette Ashe's blog.
Your fireplace with Santa's bag is just the cutest, most creative thing!
