Yes; it's that time again! Another fabulous sharing of the Control Freaks talent.
You may have arrived from Wendy's blog or directly to mine. Either way be sure to click on the links at the end of each post to see all 11 of the Freak's projects!
My first project is one we made at my April card clubs using these bundles: Sunburst Sayings, Grateful Bunch and the Crazy About You bundle. They all work together beautifully and are perfect for any lady in your life.
I wanted to create a versatile card using these awesome products. We made Mother's Day, Birthday and Graduation cards. It's perfect for almost any happy occasion.
We used assorted embossing folders on the Wisteria Wonder layer. Elegant Eggplant is the main card and ink color. I offered them three colors of card stock to stamp their flowers from the Grateful Bunch bundle onto; So Saffron, Pink Pirouette or Crushed Curry. It's hard to choose a favorite!
Did you notice that on the left most card I turned the sunburst so it shines up instead of down? It works either way and really draws your eye to the center image. I've created a how-to video with lots of tips to create these pretty cards. Stop back in next week to see it.
Next is a project we made last month at my Team meeting. I call it a pinwheel box and is a sweet treat for just about anyone who needs or deserves something to brighten their day.
I used the Pretty Petals Designer Paper stack for the pinwheel, Happy Patterns decorative masks and Old Olive card stock for the box itself. Here's another view:
It has a little box inside perfect to hold a treat or bag of candy. I've made a video for this project also and will post it soon!
The measurements for this box are:
- 3" X 11" for the outside, scoring at 4 3/4" & 6 1/4"
- 3 1/2" X 4 1/4" for the inside box; score 1" from all edges. Cut up to the score line on each side to form your box and adhere it inside.
And now that you've seen my projects you are off to see what Mindy has to share with you. I know you'll love seeing everyone's creativity this month so keep on clicking to the next stop!
