MFT April Teasers Day 1

Wow, April is here! And spring is definitely in the air here in San Diego! And with the start a new month comes the start of MFT's April Teasers. Today's teasers include three new sets, Flapper Doodles - Hold Me Tight, Typewriter Alphabet, and and Own Your Story. You can stop by Kim's blog for the list of all the designers sharing project today.

My project today uses the new Typewriter Alphabet and Own Your Story. I have to say I LOVE LOVE Own Your Story! I have so many ideas for this set, just great for cards and scrapbooking! But for my first project with the set I chose to make a journal. I love giving homemade journal as gifts and I love how this one come out!

First I stamped the notebook paper stamp, cut it out, and distressing the inked the edges. Then I stamped the Own Your Story stamp and cut it out with the new Die-namics Four Point Frame Die. My papers are from Echo Park For the Record and I added some stitching here and there.

The Border is done with the new Simple Scallops Medium Die.

Here is close up of the flower I made with the Perfect Posie Die. I love how it come out. I cut the die out twice so that I had two flowers in each size. I sprayed a little water on each flower and the crumbled it up. Then I layered the flowers by sized and added a brad. My final step was adding ink to the edges.

I bound the journal using my Cinch.

I used the letters in the Typewriter Alphabet to add a place for a name and date.
