July 2013: Control Freaks Tour!
July 26, 2013
Welcome to the Control Freaks July 2013 Tour (officially starts July 27th, but should be live by 8:00pm central time July 26th - so be sure to stop back later 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 my friend, Barb Mullikin's blog.
Our theme for this month is: "Show off your Swaps". I made one swap out of the 2013/2014 Annual Catalog and the other from the upcoming, soon-to-be-released 2013 Holiday Catalog (8/1)
Check out the Control Freaks at the 2013 Stampin' Up! Convention for our annual convention double swap...
Backyard Basics Thanks (Annual Catalog)
The Million & One stamp set was one of the first new catalog items to go on my wish list. However, I just have to say...the Backyard Basics Bundle (matching stamp set and framelits) was so NOT on my favorites list. But...I got to select some free product, so I decided to choose something I wouldn't normally get and push myself a little bit out of my comfort zone. I'm so glad I did, cuz look at that flower - just gorgeous (and no fussy cutting - yeah!!).

Aren't these Chicklet Treat Pouches adorable?! The greeting is from the NEW Tags 4 You Bundle (stamp set with matching Label Bracket Punch - save 15%). I can see my grandsons making them for classroom treats this fall. They are SO simple. I'll be sharing a video in the coming weeks on how to make one.
