Control Freak Stampin' Up! Tour: Christmas Creations

Freakwelcome

Welcome to the Control Freaks November 2012 Tour (officially starts November 21st, but should be live by 8pm central time 11/20- so be sure to stop back to take the full tour). We are thrilled to have you join us today. Our tour features some of your favorite Control Freaks Stampers sharing projects made with Stampin' Up! products. In fact, you may have just come from Connie Tumm's Blog

Our theme for this month is: "Christmas Creations".  

I actually made today's project back in August for my DOstamperSTARS Holiday Camp-a-Rama event.  I knew I'd be saving it to share for the Control Freak Christmas Tour, so here you go...    

It's a Season of Sweets Designer Kit Cards and Tag Ensemble

When I first saw the Season of Sweets Designer Kit in the 2012 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, I knew instantly I wanted to create something other than what it was originally designed for.  Stampin' Up! describes the kit as a "ideal package for cookies...or other festive treats".  Well, cards and tags are treats too, don't you think?

First off, here's what you get in the Season of Sweets Designer Kit (126912):
Includes 12 gusseted treat envelopes with window to display treat; 12 clear, food-safe cellophane bags; 30 clear stickers to secure cellophane bag and treat envelope flap; 2 12x12 sheets designer card stock stickers

Season-of-Sweets

Treat Envelope

The treat envelope is dressed up with Cherry Cobbler 3-1/2" Scalloped Tulle Ribbon (127841) .  The tag was made with the Apothecary Accents Framelits (127003) and designer card stock stickers from the kit.  Easy and cute!!

3x3 Gift Enclosure Cards

Instead of adding cookies to the treat package, I added more tags and a couple of 3x3 cards.  The banner/flag down the center is designer card stock stickers, from the kit.  The greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set punched with the Word Window Punch. The focal point features the following framelits:

  • Apothecary Accents Framelits (127003) Cherry Cobbler
  • Window Frames Framelits (129021) Garden Green
  • Itty Bitty Banner Framelits (129267) Crumb Cake

Christmas Card

Here is a matching 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card that repeats the design of the 3x3 cards.  The Cherry Cobbler background is from the Petals-a-Plenty Texture Impressions Embossing Folder (116824).

As you can see, the Season of Sweets Designer Kit (126912) is for more than cookie packaging.  If you're looking for quick and easy ideas for stocking stuffers, co-worker gifts or secret santa gifts, you'll want to give the Season of Sweets Designer Kit a try!

Well, that wraps up this stop of the tour. I hope you enjoyed my Stampin' Up! Christmas Creations.  Now on to more, from  my freaky friend, Barb Mullikin's Blog

Mitten Builder Punch: Mini Cupcakes Punch Art!

Mitten Builder Punch - it's not just for Mittens!  While playing around with the Mitten Builder Punch , I noticed that the Mitten "top", looked like frosting for a cupcake.  I thought - hmm, I wonder what I could use for the bottom.  Then I came across a card on Stampin' Connection (a private site for demonstrators), which was made by Mercedes Weber.  She had the same Mini Cupcake idea and she used the Mitten "cuff" for the bottom of the cupcake.  Clever girl!!
