Tonight I'm focusing on MFT's fabulous new Polaroid Cover-Up Die-namics (all bold products are linked at the end of post):
I adore this new Cover-Up Die-namics -- it has TONS of versatility! I'll be sharing some more projects with it throughout this month!
My first project is an 8-inch scrap page of my youngest daughter (on the right, making the goofy eyeballs!) and her BFF, in all of their Instagram selfie glory!
The Photo Booth Props Die-namics and Photo Booth stamp set are PERFECT for 12-year olds . . . It speaks their language, LOL! ;-)
I stamped some of the Photo Booth images in Berrylicious Premium Dye Ink onto the top half of the Berrylicious background, then stamped the Zebra Background with Black Licorice Pigment Ink on the lower half of the page ... I love the coverage this ink gives large backgrounds!
The speech bubble is Black Licorice cardstock, the sentiments heat embossed with white powder. The crown was die cut from silver glitter paper, as was the Friends Die-namics and glasses wand:
I love how the Friend die cut word fit perfectly across the bottom of the Smooth White cardstock Polaroid Frame! This frame is perfect for Instagram 4-inch photos, as the opening is about 3.25".
My next project is a wild safari adventure card with the sweet new Wild For You Pure Innocence!
The Polaroid Frame works great as a card front, too! Here, I die cut it from Natural cardstock and stamped the Giraffe Background with Natural Dye Ink onto it. The frame is popped up on foam tape and Wild Greenery, die cut from Sour Apple, Gumdrop Green, and Jellybean Green cardstock, was hung from the top.
The PI girl and Wild Things lion were stamped with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink onto Copic X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers (colors listed below):
Part of the Wild For You sentiment was stamped with Black Licorice Pigment Ink over the Giraffe Background ... I love the coverage this ink has over stamped images!
Inside, I added some more greenery and the rest of the sentiment:

Hello and welcome to My Favorite Things November Release Rewind! The design team hopes to inspire you with more ideas for those new November products you've purchased and are patiently awaiting to be delivered, or to help you finish up your shopping if you are still on the fence about anything!
My silly girls were trying their best to not give me a good photo op -- one trying NOT to smile and the other sticking her tongue out at me ... until they both cracked up! They really are the best of friends (thank goodness!), so these stamp set sentiments were perfect on a page about them.
I used the Arrows Abound stencil with pearlescent embossing paste on Pink Lemonade cardstock for the top half of the page -- it's gorgeous in person but a little difficult to get a good photo. Here's another view:
That fabulous sentiment was pieced together -- the "You're my favorite" originally had "Dude" at the end, but I stamped it in Paver Red Premium Dye ink, omitting the Dude. :) Soul-Sister was stamped in Steel Grey Dye ink.
The cute star accents are also from the All-Star High Top die set ... they make perfect little accents! I finished the page with a Paver Red Stitched Scallop Edges die cut across the center of the page, to give it a little more feminine flare (if the pink isn't enough to do that!):
Thanks so much for joining me this last week ... I hope you've enjoyed the My Favorite Things November release!
Head on over to the MFT Blog for a complete list of the other designers who also have projects to share on today’s Release Rewind. I hope you have a fabulous weekend and THANK YOU again for your very sweet comments over the past week of release projects and posts – I always love hearing from you!
Hello and happy weekend! I wanted to let you know I have a scrapbook page tutorial over in Ellen Hutson's the CLASSroom today. It uses Julie Ebersole's fabulous new Autumn Acorns stamp set. I hope you'll join me there to find out all the details!
Hello and welcome to My Favorite Things September Release Rewind! The design team hopes to inspire you with more ideas for those new September products you've purchased and are patiently waiting on to be delivered, or to help you finish up your shopping if you are still on the fence about anything! (I'm having a few computer problems at the moment, so all products used are linked at this bottom of the post).
Since Fall is one of my favorite times of year, I couldn't get enough of the gorgeous new Falling Leaves Die-namics, Thankful Thoughts stamp set and coordinating Words of Gratitude Die-namics, and Burlap Background, so I created this 5.50" square Grateful mini album:
This album cover idea came about when I was die cutting a bunch of the Falling Leaves from different colors of cardstock for another project. I had left the dies intact when I received them (didn't break them apart) and liked how the formation and spacing looked and wanted to use the leftover negative space from this piece of Chocolate Brown cardstock. So I stamped it with the Burlap Background in Whip Cream Pigment Ink.
Next, I inlaid all but one of the leaves with different colors of die cut leaves in these colors: Brick Red, Jellybean Green, Orange Fizz, Paver Red, Tangy Orange, Wild Cherry, which I cut down the centers with the long stitcing die from Blueprints 13. A bundle of two leaves were popped up on foam tape at the top of the album, tied with Hemp Cord:
The chocolate leaf piece was attached to the album cover I made out of corrugated cardboard, painted white. The "grateful" Words of Gratitude was die cut from gold metallic cardstock and a Paver RedStitched Circle placed underneath it. The 2014 was die cut and pieced together with the Border It-Numbers Die-namics cut from Orange Fizz cardstock.
Inside, I placed one piece of Primitive Cream cardstock cut lengthwise at 5.25", then folded in half and stamped with the Writing Tablet Background in Natural Hybrid Ink. The pages are held in place by tying Hemp Cord around them and the album cover.
The "thankful" Words of Gratitude was cut from Wild Cherry cardstock. The "for" letters were cut apart from words in the Words of Gratitude Die-namics set and pieced together! There is space on this page for some family members to write what they are thankful for this Thanksgiving:
The next two pages are dedicated to my daughters and things we are thankful for in them. Each page stamped with words and phrases from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set. Some words were created by just selectively inking individual letters from the words (like "small" below). They were stamped in Black Licorice and Wild Cherry Hybrid Ink and gold pigment ink. Some words were handwritten with Lipstick Red Copic Atyou Spica Glitter Pen.
The oldest's page . . . with her "big heart in a small package" (since she is tiny and very proud of it!):
The photos were printed at 3.50" x 5". The youngest's page, with her "nutty" personality and wonderful sense of humor:
The final page has more room for other family members to write what they are thankful for this Thanksgiving:
That’s it for me today … Head on over to the MFT Blog for a complete list of the other designers who also have projects to share on today’s Release Rewind. I hope you have a fabulous weekend and THANK YOU again for your very sweet comments over the past week of release projects and posts – I always love hearing from you!
Welcome back to the 5th day of My Favorite Things September Release Countdown -- just ONE more day until the new products are available in the MFT Boutique tomorrow night -- Tues, Sept 16 at 9pm Central!
I started with a white photo mat, sized 8-1/2" x 11" with a 4" x 6" opening and stamped it with the new Burlap Background in Natural Hybrid Ink ... I love all the texture this background creates!
Note: When creating decor projects, or anything to do with photos, I prefer using Hybrid Ink, so I'm assured the ink won't run if it accidentally gets wet.
Below is the last portion of the frame about to be stamped:
The edges of the frame were sponged with Chocolate Brown Hybrid Ink. Above, you can see the fantastic embossed details of the Falling Leaves, especially on the tan metallic cardstock I used. Here's another close-up (click any photo for a larger view):
The leaves were die cut from coordinating colors found in the photo of my sweet girls: Wild Cherry, Steel Grey, Chocolate Brown and tan metallic and a few were popped up on foam tape.
The "so very" and "for you" from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set were stamped in Steel Grey Hybrid Ink around the Words of Gratitude "thankful" die cut from antique gold metallic cardstock. Until I can decide if I want to put this photo mat into a frame for the wall, it can be displayed on an easel because of the sturdiness of the matboard.
The new September products will be available at 10pm EST on Sept 16! Be sure to head over to the MFT Blog to find a list of all the participating designers in today's hop, to see today’s full product reveals AND enter for your chance to win a $75 gift voucher on each of the 7 countdown day blog posts!
