MFT'S June Release Blog Hop and Shop!!

Welcome to MFT's June Blog Hop and Shop! If you want to start at the beginning of the hop just go on over to Kim's Blog.

My projects for the hop are all about the new Pretty Pocket Die-namics and Stamp Set! This new set is so FUN, and versatile!! My first project is very girly and I even forced myself out of my comfort zone and used bright colors!


I used the Pretty Pocket die to cut out my pocket from some DP and then stamped the stitching. Then I cut out two set of leaves with the new Leafy Flourish Die-namics. The flowers are part of stamp set. I colored them with copics and cut them out.


Notice the cute little pocket tab! I stamped "friend" and added it to the pocket. I used black rhinestone and Bakers Twine in Charcoal. The papers are from Websters Pages.


I added a little tag to my pocket. This is what it looks like when you pull it out of the pocket.



On the inside I used a fun Websters Pages DP and stamped the flower and leaves from the stamp set.

Next up, a fun gift bag I made for a boy using more bright colors!!


I used the Pretty Pocket Die to cut my pocket from denim and added the stitching with my sewing machine. I also added a denim scallop border with the Simply Scallops Large Die-namics.


I added the tab stamped with the happy sentiment. The stamped stars are included in the stamp set and the other stars are cut with the Stacking Stars Die.

I added a gift card to the pocket and plan to add some other surprises in the bag!





I hope you enjoyed this month's release! You can find all the new products right HERE!

That is it for me! Now it is time to hop on over to the sweet, and oh so talented Jodi's Blog!
