October 2014 Tour de Freaks – For All Things

Woohoo!  It’s time for the October Tour de Freaks…brought to you from the Control Freak Swappers!  Our theme this time is Gratitude and Fall.  I know the tree colors in Ohio are gorgeous right now!  Love those Sugar Maple Trees!  You may have just come from Melissa Davies’ blog…weren’t her projects fun?  If you have arrived prior to the 20th, not all links may be working yet.


October 2014 For All Things


I decided to use For All Things stamp set from the Holiday Catalog along with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch for my projects, with touches of Color Me Autumn Designer Paper.  The first thing is a Bag-a-loupe made from the Polka Dot Tag a Bags.  I added the fan fold at the top and secured it with some Linen Thread.  Yes, to get into the bag, they will need to cut or tear (gasp!) the bag!  Those little wood accents I tied on the tag are just the perfect touch, aren’t they?

The leaves were stamped in Cajun Craze, Soft Suede and Crushed Curry…perfect fall colors!


October 2014 For All Things card

The base of the card is Mossy Meadow with a Crumb Cake layer.  The tag is cut from Soft Suede.  I used the Color Me Autumn Designer Paper for accents.


Ok, make sure to continue around the tour.  Next stop is Heidi Baks…she has some wonderful ideas!

As always, love your projects…the colors and designs are great! Too bad that the sweet bag cannot be saved…

I like the way you coordinated both projects and adorable how you folded the top of the baggie!
