Control Freaks Blog Hop - June 2017

Hello, Stampers!


Welcome to the June Tour De Freaks blog hop! 
This month, we are featuring items from the
New 2017-2018 Idea Book and Catalog!
Whether you are just starting out here or arriving from Melissa's blog,
I will direct you along at the end of this post so that 
you won't miss a single project!

I am a BIG FAN of the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Each year, Stampin' Up! dedicates an exclusive stamp set
along with their time and money to support them.
To date, they have contributed more than $1.5 million
to RMHC and their local chapters! 

That's why the RMHC stamp set is always one of the firsts
on my list each year! This year's set, Sharing Sweet Thoughts,
is just adorable! Add it to your collection and Stampin' Up! 
will donate $3 from the sale of each set to the charity. A WIN-WIN!






This fun set is great to use all year long!



SU!pplies:
Stamps: Sharing Sweet Thoughts
Ink: Archival Basic Black, Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Paper: Whisper White, Sahara Sand, Wood Textures DSP
