December Tour de Freaks - NEW CATALOG SNEAK PEEK!

Hello, Stampers!



It's a SNEAK PEEK Blog Tour! All of the Control Freaks will be sharing their projects made with products from the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog! This is Stampin' Up!'s best mini catalog yet and the products are amazing! Wait until you see what the "Freaks" have created!

Whether you've arrived from Connie's blog or just getting started here, you are in the right place! How did you like what Connie created for you? She always inspires me with her creativity - she is one talented stamper!

I have to be honest. I had a hard time deciding what to order first from the new Occasions catalog - I want ONE OF EVERYTHING! It is so hard to pace myself - lol!

One of the products at the top of my list was the Build a Bouquet project kit from page 29. It is also the featured cover project, too - it is such a beautiful kit! I altered my project a bit and created a wall art piece using toilet paper rolls! Yes, I am a toilet paper roll collector! I've seen lots of projects on Pinterest and knew I could come up with something. I was going for a faux-ironwork look - I think it works! Be sure to check back soon - I will have a FREE tutorial!


I also have a card to share with you, too! It features the newest Valentine set You Plus Me as well as the Happy Heart embossing folder. See those little Calypso Coral pom poms? They are new, too! Gonna be a favorite for sure!



Thanks so much for stopping by! Continue on the hop to Justin's blog. Wait til you see what new products he is featuring! 

Happie Stampin'!
