This is my first "new product tour" with My Favorite Things stamps and can I just say I'm shaking right now as I type? Maybe because I'm barely going to get my post up in time because I worked up until the very last minute OR because I'm soooo excited! Today at 7:00 pm pst, you can purchase my new CELEBRATE LIFE set on the MFT website HERE! They sell direct to us stampers, so you buy them right from them and they ship internationally. Run NOW before they run out!!! (ok, not really - they will have plenty of stock, but I was trying to create a sense of urgency - haha!).
Now that you have all left my blog post, I'm ready to show you some more creations using my Celebrate Life set as well as many of the other sets in this release. As I said in yesterday's post - I found this business card holder at Staples for $7.99. It was the only one that had clear pockets (not matte), so I jumped on it to use as a mini album about our summer. When I got home, I realized that my daughter's Fuji Film Instax Mini Camera's photos fit in each slot perfectly!
Here is the cover shot:
The cover was black, so I covered it with washi tape - two layers of a fairly opague washi. For the inside of the cover, I used fabric paper that was self adhesive to cover the washi that was folded over the edges. I wanted to make sure NO black showed on the cover. You could use this album vertically instead of horizontally as well. That way you would be using all horizontal photos inside (where mine are all vertical photos).
Each spread contains some photos cut to size (approximately 2.25x3.5") from a wallet size, some journaling, and some decorative cards just for fun. For this spread, I used the Celebrate Life set - "take note" and the small butterfly in the Winged Beauties Set. I also used the notebook paper in the Journal It - Take Note set.
This spread uses the Celebrate Life set, the Journal It - Take Note Set, LDJ Cheerful Blessings Set (the little sun), Doodle Garden Turtle Girl (enjoy the day), and the Winged Beauties set. See how well that Instax picture fit perfectly in the slot?!?!?!?! Details on how I made the LOVE YOU card are on my last post.
This is the last spread I completed, but I plan on adding a lot more to this album! It can fit up to 96 photos/cards! This one has some of the cards I showed on my blog post yesterday with directions on how I made them. These use the Celebrate Life set, the Stylish Friends set, Large Scale Backgrounds (circles on the Be You Tiful card), and the Winged Beauties set.
I had so much fun pulling out all the MFT stamps that I own and making these little business card canvases. I have another 20 in progress, but I ran out of time! If you want to see more images of how it turns out, I'll blog about it again later this week.
And now for the good news. Return to the MFT blog to see all of the new products and to the MFT website to place your order - STARTING NOW! So excited about so many products in this release and they are now all available for purchase.
AND, if that wasn't enough good news, I am giving away one more set of my Celebrate Life set from all comments on this blog post. I will announce the winner on Thursday. Let me know what you are hoping to see in future doodle sets perdy please! Thank you so much for all of your support this week!!! suzy
