Well, this is FUN... about seven months ago I was honored with an invitation to join the Control Freaks, a talented bunch of Stampin' Up demonstrators who run an awesome blog hop each month. My health didn't cooperate, but they graciously allowed me to put them on pause, and now this is my VERY FIRST blog hop with the Freaks!
I'm so excited to introduce all of Song of My Heart's fans to the Control Freaks. They have stringent guidelines to ensure top-notch quality (hence the name of the group). Wait until you SEE what these stampers have put together for you this month! WELCOME to the Tour de Freaks for January 2017!
If I'm not your first stop on the hop, you probably came here from the amazing Heidi Baks' adorable Running with Scissors blog. I always love her stuff! All of the Control Freaks who are participating in the hop this month are linked, so just follow the link at the bottom of the post to go to the next blog, each time. Hop as long as you can stand it before you just have to "hop" off the computer and go get in the craft room!
Onto the projects! Our theme this month is the Spring 2017 Occasions Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration products that coordinate with it. I choose the Custom Tee stamp set and matching Framelits and the adorable Designer Tee free Sale-A-Bration stamp set.
It's.... GUY cards! Ta-Da! I was gonna do girl cards, too, but I was having too much fun with the boy stuff, and hey, we all need more masculine card ideas, right? These are are perfect for the spiffy dresser in your family... or the one who is rockin' the "geek chic!" First job... work promotion... graduation... birthday... there are just so many occasions you could use these stamps for. Love it!
Just got the new Labeler Alphabet stamp set (101 pieces, wow!) so I had to work it in on this card that showcases some of the different sayings you can put on your t-shirts. All of these describe my guy pretty well!
Which shirt will be the perfect fit? Well, the "birthday boy" one, of course! Here's the inside...
Last of all, I made a Valentine card using just the Custom Tee set. See, I did manage to work in one of the girl's tees, after all! I like how simple and cute this turned out... wouldn't it be fun for newlyweds or a freshly engaged couple, too? Thinkin' outside the "formal" box a little.
I hope you've enjoyed the projects I made for the Control Freaks' Spring Catalog & Sale-A-Bration fest! Your next stop on the Tour de Freaks is my darling friend LeeAnn's Flowerbug Inkspot. I can't wait to see what she's got for us! See you there.
Great projects! You've created some fantastic masculine cards (and those are always so difficult!) and I love the valentine! :)
