Control Freaks Blog Tour: Love is in the Air

Welcome to the January Tour de Freaks! This month, the Control Freak Swappers have created projects with a "love" theme! Whether you came from Justin Krieger's blog or you are just joining the fun, you're in for a treat! Make sure to hop all the through the tour to check out what we've created!

My first card is a fun  Pop Out Swing Card. I was inspired by a card by Dawn Griffith and designed this card for my Stamp Club this week. I think it could be used a Valentine or for any occasion. The sentiment is perfect: "Do more of what makes you happy". Definitely words to live by!

Stampin' Up! Supplies: Happy Life stamp set, Real Red ink & cardstock, Pool Party ink & cardstock, Basic Black ink, Whisper White cardstock, Hearts Border Punch, Square Collection Framelits

My next set of cards is definitely more traditionally valentine! I used the black and white prints from the Stacked with Love Designer Paper Stack in the Occasions Catalog as a springboard for these clean and simple style valentines.
