Welcome to the Control Freaks December 2011 Tour (officially starts December 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, Patty Bennett's blog.
Our theme for this month is: Sneak Peak of Stampin' Up! 2012 Occasions Mini and Sale-a-Bration Catalogs!
Blossom Builders Designer Printed Kit
I selected the Blossom Builders Designer Printed Kit for my sneak peak projects. I was intrigued by this kit as it contains two sheets (12x12) of die cut printed flowers (double sided) and a pack of pink rhinestones - 30ea in two sizes. Let me tell you - those pink rhinestones are SO cute!
For my two cards - I didn't skimp - I went all out! Take a look...
For the flower scallop edge, I used the new stamp set that I earned for free...Bordering on Romance AND the matching NEW Edgelit - Adorning Accents!
If you look close - you can see I splurged on the pink rhinetsones and added them in between each of the little flowers.

My second card was inspired by the 2012 Occasions Mini Catalog card sample. I changed up a few things to make it my own. I really like this layout and I think I'll be using it again.
The greeting is a sneak peak from the 2012 Sale-a-Bration FREE stamp set Sprinkled Expressions! And guess what? I added pink rhinestones to that too. Woohoo - I'm lovin' those tiny little rhinestones!
