Happy 4th Birthday

Hi Everyone!! Today MFT is sharing teasers with two new Die-namics and Stamp Sets. I have a fun scrapbook page to share using Airplane Greetings


This is my sweet Grandson Peter on his 4th birthday. The Die-namics made this a quick, easy page that makes a fun statement! My papers are from Simple Stories Summer Fresh.


The clouds are cut with the new Jumbo Cloud STAX Die-namics. I cut them from patterned paper and sponged distress ink on the edges. This I cut out the airplane, stamped the strip and the star, and attached the propeller and wing with brads. I stamped a sentiment from the set and used Bakers Twine in Maraschino Cherry.

The "4" and the "th" are cut with By the Numbers and By the Letters. Who needs to buy scrapbook embellishements!

Your Are Pretty Amazing!

Hi and happy Friday! I am so glad it is Friday! It is the end of my fiscal year at work and my mind needs a break! Nothing relaxes me more than stamping so today I have a card using Complimentary Greetings. I love the big sentiments in this set! 


I stamped the sentiment in navy blue ink on white cardstock and cut it out with the new Rounded Banner STAX Die-namics. Then I used the die again to cut out the bottom portion of the banner. The top border is created with the Simply Scallops Medium Die-namics.


I LOVE the new Plentiful Petals Die-namics! Doesn't it make a great flower. There are three sizes of flowers in the die set and I cut each one out twice and added a center and a button. My papers are from Pebbles Sunny Side.


On the inside I added the second part of the sentiment and another flower.

Taylored Expressions July Release Day


All of the new Taylored Expressions products are now available in the Fresh Out of the Oven Department. This is such a fun summer release and we just couldn't wait any longer to share it with you!!


First up I have a fun card made with the lastest in Doug Applegate's Adorable Abode, Coconut Cove. I think this might be my favorite! My image is colored with Copics and the umbrella is paper pieced. I punched out a circle for my sun and added the clouds using the Cloud Duo Die. My papers are from Echo Park, Paradise Beach.


I used the Wave Border Die for the bottom border and tied on some Ladybug Doodle Twine. My patterned paper is embossed with the new Waves/Bubbles Impression Plate.


On the inside I added another sentiment from the set, another stamped image, and another wave border.


Next I made a scrapbook page using the new Beach Word A la carte stamp, the Wave Border Die, and the Palm Tree Die to create my embellishments. My papers are from the Simple Stories 100 Days of Summer 12 x 12 Collection Kit. The sun and cloud stickers in the corner are included in the Collection.

The pictures are of my daughter Kayley and her cousin Frances parasailing in Maui about 5 years ago. Yes, I am a little behind!


The sticker letters are also part of the collection. My coloring is done with Copics.
