Control Freaks Blog Tour: New Catalog Inspiration

Whether you are hopping over from Lisa Martz's blog or just arriving -- welcome to the Control Freaks Blog Tour! Our theme this month is "New Catalog Goodness". We're showcasing projects using products from the brand new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog! There are so many new goodies to show you! I'm sure after seeing these projects, you'll have a few things to add to your wish list!

My first project is a card I made for our team meeting swap last month. I love the Affectionately Yours Washi Tape. I couldn't decide which pattern to use, so I decided to use them all! I added strips across the center of the Whisper White cardstock and then created a flower with the Festive Flower punch. The sentiment is embossed with Copper Embossing Powder.

The new Popcorn Box thinlit is great for making cute little gifts for party favors. The box is smaller than I expected. The finished box is 3-5/8" x 2-1/4" x 1-5/8". I was happy to see that I could cut two pieces (what you need to assemble the box) from one half sheet of cardstock. I dressed this one up for a summer party by punching a border with the Confetti Stars punch and adding strips of designer paper and Real Red cardstock.
