Big News From MFT

Happy New Year people!! Hope your 2010 is off to a ROCKIN start and your hangovers are tolerable and require little to no recovery time!! Today, My Favorite Things has some BIG news to share, so be sure to head on over to Kim's Blog to hear all the news!! Trust me, you won't want to miss out on this announcement...I for one am SUPER excited about it!!
While I have your attention, that is, if you are still here, I thought I would show you some of the presents I made for my nieces for Christmas. I made each of them a personalized notebook. They were all made using composition notebooks from the Dollar Store. Each was covered with designer paper, and then embellished accordingly. All images were stamped on MFT Perfect Panels and colored with my Copics. Each was then cut out using my Cuttlebug and either my Rectangle, Oval or Circle nesties. I will list the ingredients for each one after it's picture.

This first notebook was made for my niece Katelyn. I used the Fairy Girl image from the Pure Innocence line. I used DP from My Mind's Eye, and I used Cool Caribbean, Pumpkin Pie, and Regal Rose cardstock. The jewels are from Mark Richards. My ribbons are from SU and May Arts.

For Allie's notebook, I used the Apple For You image from the Pure Innocence line. Her name was made using the new Alphadots set. I used Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, and So Saffron Cardstock and ink. My ribbons and buttons were all from SU.

Makenzie's notebook was made using My Balloon and the Alphadots set as well. I used Pretty In Pink and Bashful Blue Cardstock and Ink and my DP from the Berry Bliss pack. All my ribbons are from SU as well as my brads.

For Jennifer's, I used my Flower Girl image, Pretty in Pink and Bashful Blue cardstock, May Arts and SU ribbons, and Glitter Dots from Gina K.

For this last album, I used some Purely Pomegranate, Kiwi Kiss, and Regal Rose Cardstock and ink. My DP is from SU, as well as my buttons and ribbon. The image is Heart Stripes from the Pure Innocence line.
Well, that is it for me now!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

If you are still here, I thought I would tell you a little bit about my card. I started by stamping my lion image on an MFT Perfect Panel and then colored it in with my Copics. The image was then cut out and layered using my Cuttlebug and Circle Nestabilities. All my ribbons are from SU, and the DP is part of the retired SAB Delicate Dots pack. I added a ton of piercing, a spiral clip with some ribbon, and my sentiment panel. It was made using my SU circle and word window punches.
Okay, now back to the hop!!!
