MFT's July Release Countdown Day 3 - Did Someone Say Cake?

Hi and thanks for stopping by today. I am back for another day of the MFT's July Release Countdown, which means there are only THREE days until the new release is available.

Be sure to head over to the MFT Blog for full set and die reveals for the day and the list of designers sharing projects and for your chance to win one of seven, $75 Gift Certificates.

Today I have a scrapbook page using the new File Folder Edges Die-namics and the Pinking Edge Circle STAX Die-namics.

The photo is from my daughter's 17th Birthday, seven years ago! Proving it is never too late to scrapbook a great photo! The girls were Juniors in high school. Still young and silly, being funny with the candles from the cake. Just makes me smile! 

To create the strip of black and white paper I used the new Grid Stencil, but I laid it on the diagonal and sponged on Black Licorice Ink. Then I used the new File Folder Edges Die-namics  to add the tabs over the photo. The small sentiment on the tabs are from the Delicious Birthday Stamp Set.  I love the detail it adds to the page. 

The gold balloon is cut with the new Balloon STAX Die-namics and the sentiment is from the new Delicious Birthday Stamp Set, stamped in Sweet Tooth Ink and embossed with white embossing powder. 

Here's a look at the new Pinking Edge Circle STAX Die-namics, cut from Black Licorice Card Stock and a gold glitter card stock. The cute tag is created with this month's Free with $60, Tag Talk Die-namics

The background pattern is stamped with the new Confetti Background Stamp.

  • You can attend the New Release Party on July 8th from 8-10 PM EST HERE in the MFT forum.
