Which means you can now purchase all the gorgeous products you have seen on the DT blogs all week! The question I would have is where to start! There are so many beautiful Christmas stamp sets and amazing die-namics! Ahhhh, I want it ALL! If you go to the MFT website RIGHT NOW (or any time after right now, with right now being 7:00 pm pst Tuesday, October 8th), you can buy everything (or anything)!!!
Today I want to share a project life spread I completed using many of the new products in this release and lots of my new set - Sweet Christmas. This is a make up week for last December that I had never finished, so all this holiday MFT goodness was perfect to complete it! Here is the full spread (click on image to get a clearer photo):
I'm going to go through it with several close up shots so I can show you what products I used and how I used them. First here is the left side of the spread:
The front of our Christmas card is on the top right. I used lots of blues and pinks along with reds as those are my favorite hoiday colors. I used primarily MFT products, but did add in a few pieces of patterned paper, some washi tape, and some of my beloved sequins!
For the weekly title card, I started with a piece of 4x6 cotton candy cardstock. I then used the tree lines die-namics with some smooth white cardstock and layered a portion of that image over the pink. I took a piece of light blue cardstock and cut the falling snowflakes die-namic out and used that along the top. I colored the gingerbread house from my Sweet Christmas set on the right and drew the weekly title for the top. I used my Sweet Christmas set to create the Merry Christmas journaling card as well as the weekly schedule card. By using this stamp set throughout the whole spread, it ties it all in together and makes it look cohesive.
I used the die-namics pierced traditional tag stax for the sides of the bottom left photo using the smooth white cardstock. I wrapped two small tags around each side of the photo and cut off the remaining portion. I used the looped border die-namics over the tags, added some sequins, and journaling. For the card on the bottom right, I created a frame using the merry photo card frame die-namics attaching it with staples so I could slide the photo underneath it. I used a white gel pen to add dots, journaling and outline the word merry. I added a gingerbread man from my Sweet Christmas set to complete this card.
I love to hang things over the top of my page, so I usually only do that on the cards that are going along the top edge. Sometimes I just cut a slit through the actual page protector so those items can stick through and show in the top of my album.
For the top left card, I used my favorite new stamp set called Ornament Banner Builder. I don't have the die-namic made for that set, so I drew a banner across the top and cut the ornaments out (I strongly suggest getting the actual die that does this as mine looks very messy!). I added a little glitter glue to some of the ornaments.
For the "joy to the world" journaling card, I stamped the sentiment with the Sweet Christmas set. I added the doodles along the border of a smooth white cardstock base. I used an older die-namic called the Insert It Instaframe for the frame (just turned it on it's side and it fits perfectly in the 3" x 4" project life pocket) using Cotton Candy cardstock. I added the tree from my Sweet Christmas set colored in with Copic markers and hand drew a border around the edges. I used the new Joy photo card frame die-namics for the blue frame around the photo on the top right (held down with some candy cane washi tape).
For the bottom left pocket, I used the Swiss Dots die-namic (ohhh love love this!) and then the insert it instaframe die-namic over it. I used my Sweet Christmas set for the sentiment and the ornament banner builder. I made the frame into a pocket by using my tiny attacher around three of the outside edges. Inside is my movie tickets and some more photos. For the silver piece on the smaller card, I used the swiss dots stencil in my die-cut machine to emboss it and then I used rhinestones on top of the embossed circles. This is a great way to evenly space embellishments (although it looked pretty plain as well!). For teh bottom left card, I used the Holiday Subway Art stamp set with the BluRaspberry ink pad over washi tape.
And now to announce the winners of my two sets of Sweet Christmas. Thank you to all that entered (left comments on any of my posts this week). Off to see who wins!!!
