Dinnblogtour I'm sending you a WHOLE LOT OF LOVE today with this post!!  WELCOME to the January Control Freaks Blog Tour !!!  

Our theme this month is Valentine's and Hearts… please enjoy the ideas you will find as you go through each blog on this tour! (click "next blog" at the botton of this post to visit the next blogger on our tour!)

If you are joining me from LeAnn Greff's blog, welcome!  If you missed hers, you will find her HERE.

The first project I have to share with you is a little candy wrapper for peppermint sticks… Just use the larger of the tags on the TWO TAGS DIE, some Pretty in Pink Cardstock and the Big Shot and VOILA.. you have a quick and easy Valentine's gift!  It's rolled with the new I {Love} Love jumbo wheel (item #117084 – Occasions Mini Catalog) and real red innk.

 This project is a combination of ideas from Shelli's sample at Leadership and a swap I got from fellow demonstrator:  Suzy Halford.

The "friend" heart stamp (from I {heart} Hearts) is stamped in Real Red on Whisper White, punched out with the FULL HEART PUNCH (#113693), and LAYERED onto the Real Red heart die cut with the "Scalloped Heart of Hearts" embosslit die (#117332 – Occasions Mini Catalog)

My next idea featured the FABULOUS SIMPLY ADORNED line of Jewelry from Stampin' Up!

The necklace above features the 1-1/2" x 2" Rectangle Charm (item #116799).

The bracelet showcases 2 each of the small 5/8" circle charms (item #117349) and the small 5/8" Square Charms (item #118476).  You will find all of these items in the Occasions Mini Catalog on pg 28.

I stamped and punched out 1/2" circles and cut out 1/2" squares to fill in the charms.

The back side of my necklace charm is not Valentine's-ish, but I thought I'd share it anyway:

I hope you have enjoyed my projects… I hope you will enjoy the Simply Adorned jewelry line as much as I am.. it's so much fun to make as many inserts as you want and just switch them to match each outfit you wear!
