JANUARY 2014 Tour de Freaks


It's time for the Tour de Freaks!  Brought to you by the Control Freak Swappers!  This month's theme is Valentine or Sale-a-Bration products!  I choose to do Valentines this month since that holiday is right around the corner!  You probably have just arrived here from my friend Debbie Henderson's blog!  I always LOVE her projects!  You can continue around to all 12 stops until you arrive back here. 


I used the Language of Love stamp set that I received at Leadership!  It is in the Occasions Celebrate catalog.  I think it is perfect for more than Valentines, so you'll be seeing more of it, I'm sure!  My first is a card.  I used the Fresh Prints Designer Paper for my color inspiration.  I also used the new Scalloped Texture folder for the first time!  Hard to see, but I also pierced two rows around the edge of the circle.  Of course, the Full Heart and Small Hearts work perfectly with this set.



My next project was really fun.  I found these little clear plastic "houses" at the M**** store in town.  They hold candy and even came with a little scoop!!!  It was just TOO fun to pick up a few to play with!  The first shows the flap on the front closed.  I used Language of Love stamp set again and the same Fresh Prints Designer Paper.  This one I added the White Bakers Twine around the container, then "hung" my pennants along the twine.  Candy Dots add a little touch of bling to each side.

The second photo shows where the holder is for the scoop is on the side.



On this one you can see the flap open and the scoop ready to serve some candy!



Isn't it just precious!!!!  I absolutely love how this little favor turned out!


Now, make sure to continue around the tour.  Next stop is Connie Tumm...her projects are darling!

What adorable projects Connie. Love the banners on the card and the heart stamp is so perfect for both projects. I'm so jealous that you have the M*** store so handy-by to purchase such cute items to alter. I live in a rural town that doesn't have any stores like that to pick from!
