This is week three of the MFT Idol Challenge. This week the theme is to use MFT new stamp set, Girls night out, being released on Wednesday. It seems like most of my girls nights out revolve around celebrating birthday. This set has so many great sentiments, it makes it perfect for so many occasions. A couple of my friends have "BIG" Birthdays coming up, so I went with a Girls Night Out Birthday theme. Be sure to hop on over to Splitcoaststampers in the MFT forum to vote for your favorite! You have from 10:00 pm EST tonight to 10:00 pm EST on Wednesday to cast your vote. I would appreciate your vote!
First, I put together this keepsake hanging frame. The chipboard frame is by Kaiser. I cover each frame, made mats for the photos, added images from Girls Night Out, rhinestones on the flourishes, and put it together with ribbon. I used Tim Holtz black distressing inks on the edges.
I had a $1.99 photo album from Target. I just took out the cover and made a new one, a quick easy gift for many occasions.
This is my gift bag that matches the rest of the grouping. I used the Girls Night Out image and sentiment. Then I added the cake from You Take the Cake, the pot for Build a Bouquet, and the wine bottle and bubbles from Time for the Bubbly. I used stickles on the bubbles so that they would look like ice.
Here is my card. I wanted a gift card holder too, so on the inside of the card I made a pocket.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and take a look!

This is the cover of my album. I used the Going Places set. First I stamped the airplane, then Who's That Girl, then the suitcases, and lastly the buildings. The album is mounted on 8x8 chipboard. I rounded two of the corner. The edges are distress with Tim Holtz Distressing Ink in Tea Dye. All the coloring is done with Copics. Her dress is pieced and I add a little camera charm and lace.
In the beach scene I used By the Seashore. I stamp my first girl, made a mask, and then stamped the second one. I did the same for the birds. Then leaving my masks in place I colored and sponged in the sand. The shells embellishment is also masked. On my spa day page, the main image is from Serenity Now, but the cup and tea bag are from Hot Stuff. The letters are chipboard that I sponged on Old Olive Ink and I added some buttons.
Anything girls' trip has to include shopping and good dining. For my shopping scene I used Tote-ally Fantastic, the awning from Meet Me at the Cafe, and a Annie Lapoint flower pot. I also reversed masked the dots on the awning with the dots in Behind the Scenes. I added ribbon and a charm and lengthened the sidewalk on both pages. In my dining scene I used Meet Me at the Cafe and Branch Out. I stamped the cafe sign, then the awing, then the main image, and lastly the branches.
The trip has to include time to relax and just enjoy each others' company! In my e-girl scene I used the shoes from Say Charge, a purse from Tote-ally Fantastic, an Annie LaPoint flower pot, and Who's That E-Girl. This one took my awhile! It was my first attempt but the masking got easier as I went along! I used chip board letters, flowers, rhinestones, and my computer. On the second page I used Here's the Scoop, the suitcases from Going Places, and the shopping bag from Say Charge.
Since I just got April's Who That Girl from Kim I just had to include it at the last minute. I just love it! I pieced the shirts and added the perfect sentiment to end my album with!
Thanks so much for stopping by and looking!

My Celebration set includes an invitation, a bottle gift holder, and a party favor box. I used DP from October Afternoon to set my color theme. One of the things I just love about MFT stamps is that you that you can take them so many different directions, from elegant to whimsical, and for so many different age groups, from young adults to Grandmothers!
I also made a party favor box with some extra DP. Thanks so much for stopping by! I feel very honored to be in the Top Ten! Remember to stop by Splitcoaststampers and vote for your favorite.

So here is my first card with my new MFT products. Love "Hangin' With My Peeps"! This card is going to one of my girls who is away at college and won't be home for Easter. The sketch is Jen del Muro's weekend sketch. All the DP is from the MFT paper pad. Such great colors! I pieced the dress and added the MFT rhinestones and ribbon. I drew in lines on the sidewalk and stamped the grass with a stamp from the set. I colored with my copics and the charm is from my stash.
My Favorite Things is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, March 4th from 9-10 PM EASTERN. You can head over to the MFT forum on Splitcoaststampers to find out all the details.
