Sale-a-bration 2012

Outlined Occasions Love


This is another card that my Be a Big Shot at Home Members made in January.  It is a very simple card using the Adorning Accents Edgelits and the Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folders along with a couple of items from the Sale-a-bration Brochure.

I stamped the "Love" image from the Outlined Occasions stamp set in Basic Black on Crumb Cake and colored it in with the Versamarker and the Real Red Marker.  I punched it out with the Extra Large Oval Punch and layered it on a piece that was embossed with the Big Shot and the (dotted oval) Designer Frames Textured Impressions Embossing Folders and then cut out.

OutlinedoccasionsYou can earn the Outlined Occasions stamp set as well as the set of Designer Frames Folders FREE when you place your $50 orders with me during Sale-a-bration. 

We added a strip of Real Red Striped Designer Series Paper from the Brights Patterns Paper Stack along the inside bottom edge of the card.

Punches, Glitter and Adhesive Sheets


This is one of the make & take projects we made at Lisa's workshop last week.  It uses the New Mixed Bunch stamp set (Wood or Clear) and the coordinating Blossom Punch.  We also used the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper you can get FREE during Sale-a-bration with your $50 order.  Place your order here!

Do you see all the bling on the flower?  Here is a close up:


Stamp your image
Cut a piece of the Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet a bit bigger than your stamepd image.
Peel off one side of the backing sheet and place the sticky side down covering your stamped image.
Punch your image out.  You should be able to see through the adhesive sheet to do this.
Remove the remaining backing sheet to expose the adhesive and smoosh it into your Dazzling Diamonds Glitter

That is all there is to it, super easy.  You get twelve 12x12 adhesive in the package for only 14.95, they will last you a long time!!!!

Todays card features the Outlined Occasions Sale-a-bration stamp set and one of the patterns in the NEW Spring Fever Simply Scrappin' Kit.  The papers in this kit are so bright and cheery!!

OutlinedexpressionsflowerfusioncloseI added three flowers cut with the Floral Fusion Sizzlit.  I ran Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz scraps through the Big Shot with the die and layered them together.  I added a Glimmer Brad to the middle of each one for some BLING!! 

The "celebrate" image is from the Sale-a-bration set called Outlined Occasions and you can get this set FREE when you place a $50 order with me.  I used a Versamarker to color in some of the confetti sprinkles.

Mini Tutorial - Making a Loopy Bow

I posted this card on Tuesday for the start of Sale-a-bration and have had a number of stampers email me to find out how to make this loopy bow with our 1/8" organdy ribbons that are in the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Pack.  It is super easy and here are some photos to help you.

I used the Fresh Vintage stamp set, Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper and the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad pack on my card.


I started with a piece of the cardboard that comes in our DSP packs and cut it to 2 1/2 x 3.  Wrap your ribbon around the card any odd number of times, I did eleven.  Slide it off.


Holding the middle of the loops, pry open the prongs on one of the brads from the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon and Brad Pack, slip it over the loops press the prongs back together.


Punch a hole in your project and attach the brad....easy, peasy, lemon squeezy!!

You can get the stamp set, Designer Series Paper and Ribbon and Brad pack FREE with the $50 orders you place with me during Sale-a-bration.

December 2011 Control Freaks Blog Tour - Sneak Peaks


Welcome to the December 2011 Tour de Freaks Blog Hop! We are so excited to have you join us today.

This month we are featuring products from the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog and the Sale-a-bration Catalog.

Our tour is nice and short and features some of your favorite Control Freaks Stampers. You may have just come from my fellow freak Mary Brown, you may be one of my blog stalkers or you may have just stumbled here…however you got here, you’ll be very glad you did!  Be sure to take the whole tour!  Note:  If you are arriving here on the 19th, please note that not all links may be working yet.  The tour officially begins on the 20th.

SweetcakefauxfrostingFirst up is a card made with items from the Sweet Shop Product Suite.  I started out by stamping the main image from Sweet Cake in Early Espresso onto Whisper White and then cut it out.  I cleaned the stamp and stamped it again on Blushing Bride and Poppy Parade in the same ink colors and cut out the cake plate, heart and cherry and paper pieced them onto the main image.

My frosting is done with a technique called Faux Frosting, come back and I will share it with you later this week.  The tutorial is done and you can find it HERE.

The Pool Party background piece is created with one of our Brand New Framelits Sets called Labels Collection.  It is a set of 6 wafer thin dies and yes, there is a coordinating stamp set. :-)

I added a piece of Sweet Shop Specialty Designer Series Paper to the bottom and finished the whole thing off with some Lucky Limeade Ruffled ribbon and a brad from the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Pack that you can earn for FREE next month during Sale-a-bration!!

PerfectlypennedblossombuilderMy next two projects use a new product called the Blossom Builders Designer Printed Kit.  The kit includes sheets of textured die cut flowers in a variety of colors, designs and shapes along with a sheet of pink rhinestones!!  They are so much fun, I will be offering my local gals a class using them!!  I layered a number of the flowers together and added some circle punches and a knot of Daffodil Delight Ribbon.  The main card was run through the Big Shot with a new set of smaller sized Textured Impressions Embossing Folders called Adorning Accents.  After I ran the card stock through the Big Shot, I used a sponge dauber and lightly rubbed over the hearts with my Lucky Limeade ink pad.  I used my favorite word set called Perfectly Penned for the greeting.

BlossombuilderbookmarkMy last project is an elastic bookmark and also uses the Blossom Builders Designer Printed Kit.  Again, I layered a variety of flowers with a couple of punched images and a bit of Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon.  The colors are Rich Razzleberry and Blushing Bride.  These are so easy to make!!  I will try to get a tutorial together for you after Christmas.



 That does it for me, your next stop is fellow freak Deb Currier and I am sure you will love what she has to share.


Thanks for visiting!!!!
