Feb 2014 Tour de Freaks


It's time for the Tour de Freaks, brought to you by the Control Freak Swappers!  We have a mish mash of projects for you this month as we could use ANY current item we wanted!  WOOHOO!!!  You've probably just come from my friend Mary Brown's blog...weren't her projects FUN!  I always love what Mary does!  Make sure you go around to all the stops…it will bring you back here!


I had fun making this project and took my colors from the Kaleidoscope Designer Paper.  It's a portfolio and matching card…but the surprise is INSIDE the portfolio and the closure!  I used Peaceful Petals from the Occasions catalog in both the background and as cut-out flowers, adding the Petite Petals center of Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay Itty Bitty Flower Punch and a Rhinestone jewel for a little bling.




Did you see?  I used the Scallop Tag Topper Punch for the closure on my portfolio!  It slips under the double band of Bermuda Bay to secure.  I also used the Word Bubble Framelits with the word Hello from Four You stamp set.



And here is it open!

Isn't it fun?  I found this Word Bubble notepads at the M**** Craft Store!  I LOVE them and grabbed a few different shapes!

And, of course, I decided to make a coordinating card.  Wouldn't this combination be a great gift for someone???


OK…continue on the rest of the tour and see what everyone else came up with this month!  Next stop is Julie Davison!  I love her crafty designs, too!

Love the bright colors, and you've given me an idea for a fun-fold card with the Scallop Tag Topper closure! Thanks for the inspiration!

I like the DSP at a diagonal.  I'm gonna have to try that!
