MFT Teaser Day 1



Hey everyone and welcome to MFT Teaser Day 1 of 5! We are so excited to showcase some of the new products from My Favorite Things in the next 5 days, a prelude to the release on May 3rd! I don't know about you, but I can't wait! hehe!

Today the MFT design team will be sharing projects using 3 new stamp sets: Flapper Doodles - SS Flapper, Well-Worn Greetings and Fred Bear Plays Indian. I'll be sharing a project using Well-Worn Greetings.

What a SUPER fun stamp set Well-Worn Greetings is. I love distress and shabby chic and anything worn works well for me! LOL! Plus, I just ADORE the denim texture stamp included in the set... so COOL!! (Funny how the little things in life rock my world, eh? hehe!) Anyhow, I decided to create a Layout of my eldest son Jarrod. I had never scrapped this baby picture of him. This is his FIRST studio picture at age 1. Is he not the cutest? Looks like he's about to jolt off that stool.... (well, guess what... he DID!! LMBO!)



I used one of my 11 1/2 x 11/12 AccuCut dies as the base of the layout. I cut it out in chipboard and layered some MME paper on it. I took some white acrylic paint to distress the edges of the layout and "wiped" some of the paint onto the page to give it a dingey-shabby feel. The photo and 8x8 piece are layered onto MFT "Fossil" cardstock. I used the Open Zig Zag Die-namics border to accent the sides of the layout. Don't you just love those Rolled Flowers cut out with MFT's cork sheets? So fun! And the coordinating Well-Worn Greetings Die-namics made layering the sentiment a breeze! I used MFT's Typewriter Alphabet set to spell out Jarrod's name, punched out the letters with my 1/2" circle punch and popped on some epoxy stickers over the letters. I used the Fish Tail Banner Die-namics to layer his name along side his pic... yup, that's MFT cork again on the Fish Tail banner! I love the texture and dimension the cork gives! :-)
