Shabby Chic Mini Album & Card

Hi everyone! I am super excited to announce that I was invited to be part of the "My Favorite Things" design team. I just love their stamps and dies, and they offer so many other fun scrappy products on their site. So be sure to check them out at!

For my first official MFT projects, I created a "Shabby Chic" mini album and a card. The mini album was inspired by their new stamp set called "Caged Bird" in the new Inspired By collection. OMG, I am so lovin' this stamp set you guys!! It is so versatile and the images and sentiments are just awesome! They go so well with the Webster's Pages and Ciao Bella papers too!

I used the Sweet Fairy Jolinne stamp set for the card I created for my scrappy friend Brandy. This stamp set is so adorable! I had fun coloring her in with my Copic markers and "accenting" her with Dazzling Diamonds and Starburst Stains by Lindy Stamp Gang.

Here are some pictures below. But be sure to check out the video HERE to see the products I used and how I incorporated them into my projects. And don't forget to check me out on Facebook for full shots of these photos! I'm at "Arlene Butterflykisses." :-)
