Control Freaks February Blog Hop

It's official: I'm a FREAK!
After years of cyber-stalking the Control Freaks, they asked me to join them. I'm so very excited and this is my first official Tour de Freaks! Our theme this month is Sale-a-Bration. If you started at the beginning of the tour, you just visited the very talented, Heidi Baks. I'm always so inspired by her!
This weekend, I'll be hosting a Birthday Bash class with my local customers. I've created some treats for them with the Party Pants stamp set and the It's My Birthday Designer Series Paper. Party Pants is probably my favorite Sale-a-Bration product, if for no other reason than I love the saying "put your party pants on". Hilarious!
In the class, my customers will be creating 8 cards. I decided to package up the Whisper White envelopes and It's My Party Enamel Dots inside the Sketched Dots Tag a Bag Gift Bags. I added a few strips of It's My Party Designer Series Paper that had been punched with the Triple Banner punch, along with a clothspin, doily, sequins, and baker's twine to dress it all up nicely.
The balloon was stamped in Melon Mambo ink onto Whisper White card stock, then punched out with the Balloon Bouquet punch. Don't you just love how these Sale-a-Bration products coordinate with items from the Occasions catalog?
I'm sure my customers will work up quite a thirst and appetite during class, so I'm providing them with a little caffeine boost and chocolate. I used the Pyramid Pals thinlits die for the chocolate box. This set of dies even has a die to create that cute fringe border! The bottle tag is so quick & easy to make. I'll be posting a tutorial on how to make it soon.
Thanks so much for stopping by my little corner of the web! Don't forget to visit Dawn Olchefske to continue on the blog tour. She's always got some great ideas!
