Control Freaks January Blog Hop - Share the Love

Hello, Stampers!

Welcome to the January Tour de Freaks Blog Hop!
I'm so glad you joined us to Share the Love!
Whether you are arriving from Bree's fabulous blog or
just starting out here, the Freaks are excited to share their
creations with you. Be sure to follow along to see some
amazing ideas.


Well, I've been at it again! I found this wooden heart hanger
at the dollar store and dressed it up Stampin' Up! style
using the From My Heart designer papers and a little
bit of cardstock. Gnomes are everywhere these days - 
I just love how stinkin' cute they are! I created mine with
some stitched shapes - pretty simple to do!


Here is the heart "before". Be sure to sand
off all the glitter before adding your designer
papers for a smooth finish. 😉
SU!pplies:
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Real Red, Petal Pink, Blushing Bride, From the Heart DSP
Accessories: Stitched Shapes dies, Heart Punch Pack, Heart Doilies, Stitched Be Mine dies, Whisper White crinkled seam binding, Hand-Lettered Prose dies

Happie Stampin'!

Good Morning, Stampers!

Having a little fun with some leftover pieces from the December Paper Pumpkin kit while I wait for this month's kit. Check out the detail in that Coastal Weave embossing folder -  gorgeous! It's my new favorite embossed background. It looks so good with any floral element!

CCMC Saturday Blog Hop - Adventure

Good Morning, Stampers!


The Create with Connie and Mary Team are designing
this week with an adventure theme. Adventures are so much
fun no matter what the reason!


This is a card I created for my husband after he retired last summer.
He took his brother and drove his red camaro
 (or in this case, a Mustang lol) from Michigan here to Arizona
along Route 66. They made all the stops along the way - shopping,
restaurants, site-seeing, golfing, etc. It was something he
had always wanted to do. Needless to say, it was quite
the adventure - they had a blast!
SU!pplies:
Stamps: Greared Up Garage, On to Adventure
Ink: Tuxedo Black, Smoky Slate, Basic Gray
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Smoky Slate, Country Club DSP
Accessories: Garage Gears dies
