Dinnblogtour I have been a member of the CONTROL FREAK SWAP GROUP for many, many years.. we are a diverse group of stampers from all over the U.S and Canada. We swap about 5 or 6 times  a year and are hosted by Lisa Martz – hostess extraordinaire!  🙂 

Julie Dinn organized a BLOG TOUR for all of us to join on the 20th of each month…  I hope you'll come along on the tour on the 20th of July and August too!

This month we are showcasing samples with RETIRING stamps and/or accessories.  After viewing my samples, please click on the button at the bottom that says CLICK HERE FOR THE NEXT STOP ON THE BLOG TOUR 🙂

Here are my 2 submissions for RETIRING STAMP SET SAMPLES:

I decorated a "box die #2" box (cut out with the Big Shot) using the retiring set called BIG FLOWERS(pg 122).  I also used Pink Flamingo DSP and red grosgrain ribbon and a little sneak peek touch of the Crushed Curry polkadot ribbon.  I filled it with some yummies… English Toffee! 🙂  YUM!

My 2nd submission is one of my favorite little card designs.. a 3×6 open end envelope folded and decorated with a 3×3 card inside.  The retiring set I used for this one is the SAY IT WITH SCALLOPS set (Ronald McDonald House charity set), pg 209.
