Best Friends

Welcome to the MFT December Release Blog Hop!!! If you just happened upon my blog and I want to start at the beginning, hop on over to Kim, the MFT Lady's blog. This is my first month as a official design team member and I have been having so much fun!

For the hop tonight I made a card and covered the front of a photo album. I am using one of the new Pure Innocence stamps, Hearts Stripes. My daughter has had the same best friend since kindergarten, and now they are in college. I have been wanting to make her BFF a small album and I am starting with the cover.

For the card, I stamped the image with Memento Black Ink and then masked off the hand and stamped the image again. I wanted it to look like they were hold hands. I colored with my Copics, and added MFT baby brads as buttons on the jumpers. I sewed on the outside edges, added on lace, MFT Gingham ribbon, and buttons tied with twine. The sentiment is one of three included in the set.

For the cover of the photo album, I cut cardstock the size of the album, added some DP and sewed around the edges. I cut the stamped image to fit the frame, and added ribbon, lace, a button and twine.

Next up in the hop is Lisa, a member of the MFT Temp Team for this month! She so creative and all her work has been amazing this week!

TFL, Melody
