Control Freaks Sale-A-Brating Continues!

Welcome to the January 2017 edition of the Tour de Freaks, featuring the awesome Occasions catalog, and equally awesome Sale-A-Bration brochure. We just had so much fun with this theme last month, and there is SO MUCH good stuff to share with you, that we're doing it again this month!

You may have hopped here from LeeAnn's blog, Flowerbug's Inkspot (weren't her project's sa-weet?!), or maybe you just started here. Either way, follow the links at the bottom of each blog to take the whole tour. There are fourteen stops today!

I had such a hard time figuring out what I wanted to use, because I wanted to use it ALL! I finally (with great reluctance) decided to focus on just one suite, and since Valentine's Day is right around the corner, I went with the Sending Love Suite.

When he was working I used to tuck love notes in my hubby's lunch box every once in a while, so love notes is the focus today. Since he's retired now, I'll have to find some creative ways to hide them for him to maybe inside his iPad case, or in his bathroom drawer, heh heh.

All of these cards are 3" x 3" and were made using the products on page 15 of the Occasions catalog.

The Stitched Shapes Framelits are back in stock, and using them with the Sending Love DSP Stack made the cards look like little teeny tiny cute!

That's a wrap from me today. Now I'm off to find some good hiding places! Be sure to "chick" out the next stop, Lisa's blog, Get Your Stamp On!
