Welcome to the Control Freaks February 2013 blog tour! We’ve created projects using products from the new Spring Mini. If you’re following the tour, you’ve just come from Dawn Olchefski’s blog.
Here are my two projects!
PROJECT #1 – Dress Up Center Step Card
I adore the All Dressed Up stamp set and coordinating dies — they take me straight back to my childhood when I used to play with paper dolls! It does not surprise me in the least that I am still playing with paper all these years later. 😉
I decided to create a center step card to showcase this dress — it’s my first center step card (even though this design has been out for quite some time). My card measures 5-1/2 inches tall by 4-1/2 inches wide. I followed the directions found on Splitcoast and adjusted the measurements to fit my design — they’re very easy to make!

PROJECT #2 – Blowing Wishes Your Way Card
I love this little pinwheel die and the coordinating stamp set that goes with it — so cute! The images found in the Itty Bitty Bits stamp set fit perfectly in the center of the pinwheel. The inspiration for my color scheme — a two liter Sprite bottle. 😉
