Control Freak Blog Tour: Occasions Catalog



It's time for another Control Freaks Blog Tour! Whether you're coming from StamperCamper Mary Brown's blog or just arriving -- welcome!! I'm so excited about this month's theme! We're showcasing projects using products from the brand new Occasions Catalog! The catalog starts in a couple weeks, but it's not too early to start making out your wish list and we'll do our best to help add to it! (wink!)

The projects I am sharing this month are all using the new Happy Watercolor stamp set. If you have your Occasions Catalog already, you can find it on page 22. This first card is one that I designed for a recent downline meeting. I love all the gold bling! And the Occasions Catalog has plenty of it! Check out the Gold Foil Sheets, Gold Sequin Trim, Watercolor Wonder (gold) Washi Tape, Metallic ink, and Gold Baker's Twine!

This next card was one of of our make and takes at Founder's Circle in September. I love this alternative way to use the Gold Sequin Trim! The notecard is part of the Watercolor Wonder Designer Notecards and Envelopes. There are 20 cards in the package -- 4 each of 5 different designs.

Finally, here is my attempt at a 3-D project. I used the new Tag Topper Punch to create a little treat wrapper...but I didn't have any treats to wrap up, so it's empty. So sad and pathetic, isn't it? What would you put inside it? It's 2" wide and has a 1/2" width on the inside. I think some small candy or maybe some tea bags would fit nicely inside.

Oooo, I love the Crisp Cantaloupe paired with all the gold! (And I, too, love all the gold in the new catalog!) So many shiny squirrels! :)
