Good morning everyone and welcome to another Control Freaks blog tour! You most likely have come from Dawn's blog. Isn't she super talented? Love it!! I am so excited to share with you some projects that I have created. The theme for this tour is In The Good Ol' Summertime! And summertime it is around here! It has been crazy hot! So here are my projects that remind me of summer time.
This first project is a post-it note cover. These are so super easy to make! I have made them before and you can really make a bundle in a short time! I chose to use ribbon to close mine but there are several different ways to do that. No stamping required for this project! I used the bird punch for this. But how cute would that new owl punch be for this?! I just might have to order that one!! LOL! I like to sponge the wing and pop it up to give it a little dimension. I also used a pearl for the eye. I'm not sure I like that. I kind of wish I had just left it alone. But it's not bad, either. And then I used a small piece of the new Woodland Cottage designer paper. That will be fun paper to use!
For my next project I made this super simple card. My inspiration for this layout came from a past 411 sketch. I thought that it could be considered summery as it is yellow! Well, So Saffron to be exact. I paired that with Wild Wasabi and Early Espresso. The sets used are the new Friends Never Fade and A Word For You.
My last project is my favorite! We do a lot of motorcycle riding and four wheeling in my family so this stamp fits right in with our summer time fun! Not to mention that my son LOVES this stamp! He is my biggest fan whenever I use it!! For this card I took inspiration from the catalog with the colors and then I used a sketch from Karen Giron and her Sweet Sunday Sketch. I like the way it is masculine. And I love the saying! While these stamps are not new the color, Cherry Cobbler, is.
