Control Freaks are Keeping it Simple!


Welcome to the Control Freaks November 2011 Tour (officially starts November 20th). We are thrilled to have you join us today. Our tour is nice and short and features some of your favorite Control Freaks Stampers sharing projects made with Stampin' Up! products. In fact, if you started in the middle of the tour you may have just come from fellow freaker, Robin Spinner's blog.

Our theme for this month is: KISS - Keep it Simple Stamper

Simple Snowflakes

First up is actually a KISSS card.  Keep it Super Simple Stamper!  A one layer card that is perfect for mass producing your holiday cards.  Just grab a Stampin' Up! snowflake set, a beautiful greeting, some glue and glitter, and you'll be ready to go!

All White Christmas

My next card is a great example of a KISS card.  Despite it's four layers, this clean and simple card uses only one sheet of cardstock...amazing!  You can leave it clean and elegant or add some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter for a fresh fallen snow look.  

 I had a hard time capturing the beauty of these cards.  In real life - they are breathtakingly beautiful!

Holly Berry Bouquet Folded Star Ornament

This surprisingly easy Folded Star Ornament would look great on any holiday tree or package.  With only five squares of paper, you'll be amazed at how easy and quick this ornament comes together.  Be sure to stop back on Tuesday for a quick how-to video.
