Welcome to the Control Freaks January 2013 blog tour! We’ve created projects using new Sale-a-bration products. If you’re following the tour, you’ve just come from Barb Mullikin’s blog.
Here are my two projects!
PROJECT #1 – Wishing You a Day As Perfect As You Are
I love this sentiment and the swirly design that goes around it. I had a hard time, though, finding a shape to add as an accent beneath the cut-out sentiment. I finally die cut two of the label shapes found in the Apothecary Accents Framelits set and criss-crossed them — they ended up fitting perfectly underneath the sentiment!

PROJECT #2 – Patterned Occasions Note Card Set
The images in the Patterned Occasions stamp set are so adorable — I couldn’t pick just one image to use so I decided to make a set of note cards using all the images. 😉 The note cards measure 3″ x 3″.
Here’s a close-up of the jeans note card — I added a small rhinestone as the “button” on the jeans. 😉
