Hello everyone and welcome to the Control Freaks March Blog Tour! Our theme this month is "Spring into Spring". What a fabulous way to celebrate the arrival of the most beautiful season of the year!
If you've already begun the tour, then you must be arriving from Jason Caspar's blog! I was blown away by his projects this month!
My projects this month focus on Easter. My daughter is getting baptized this year and I've made her a very special Easter card and an Easter memory box for this very special occasion in her life. With the soft tones of Pink Pirouette and Crumb Cake, these projects could also be easily adapted for Mother's Day, a graduation or wedding or any springtime event!
For the card, I used a Card Base of Pink Pirouette with layers of Crumb Cake, Whisper White and the Polka Dot Designer Series Paper from the Subtles Paper Pack. I used the Big Shot, of course (what project wouldn't be complete without the Big Shot) and the Framelets Labels Collection, the Butterfly Die and the Beautiful Wings Embosslet. Other supplies used include Antique Brads, Stampin' Dimensionals, Basic Pearls and the Vintage Vogue Stamp Set as well as the new He Is Risen Individual Stamp.
Although the Treasure Box could easily be constructed with Chipboard, I recycled a little gift box, covering it with Pink Pirouette and Pretty in Pink Polka Dot Designer Series Paper. I used the same butterfly medallion as on the card and added the fabulous Pink Pirouette Pleated Satin Ribbon around the edges (this also helps to hide the unsightly seams where the paper edges meet)
Well, I think that about does it for this stop! I hope that I've helped Spring into Spring with my Easter Card and Treasure Box. Just wait until you see what's waiting for you on the rest of the tour! Talk about inspiration!
