Rue Des Fleurs – Control Freak Swap

I received my Control Freak Swaps in the mail today so I thought I would show you mine.


I chose Rue Des Fleurs, a new set in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  It was a set I received on my trip to Founder's Circle back in September.  This set is a little out of my comfort zone so I chose it to challenge myself and I am really happy with how my card turned out.

RuedefleursfreakscloseI used the NEW Framelits Labels Collection to cut out the main image and half Poppy Parade layer.  I used the NEW Paper Doily Large Sizzlit to create the embossed impression on my 1/2 Top Note.  BARB'S TIP: I ran the Paper Doily Die through my Big Shot with both tabs open so it wouldn't cut all the way through my Pool Party card stock.

I paper pieced the Bustier with the Daffodil print paper in the Attic Boutique Designer Series Paper Pack.  Get your share of all the papers in the Occasions Mini by signing up for one of my Product Shares HERE.

FramelitspkgThe Framelits Dies come in a nifty sturdy plastic envelope that stores nicely in our Big Shot Die Storage Boxes.

However, I want my Framelits easily accessible to me and so I store mine in one of our Clear Mount Stamp Cases.  I can get two sets of dies in each Clear Mount Stamp Case and since I added a few strips of our Magnet Sheets  They stay nice and orderly for me and are easy to pick up between the strips of magnet. :-)  I put the descriptive sheet for eash set of Framelits under the plastic on the front and back of the case.

  1. Hi, Barb,
    I think this storage solution will work well for all the Framelits to come. What kind of adhesive did you use to stick the magnet sheets to the case? Thanks!
