We really look forward to seeing your scrapbooking pages and PL pages using your MFT Stamps and Die-namics. You have until noon Monday, November 19 to play along . So, are you feeling Scrappy!? Then GET SKETCHY with MFT!

Here is the fabulous MFT Scrap Sketch that we have for you this month!!!


I was SO glad to get to make this 12X12 page of some of the pics I took of my daughter, Hannah, this month when we had a little outdoor Fall photo-shoot a couple of weeks ago. I had this pretty BoBunny Serenade paper in mind when we took the pictures. For my page, I flipped the sketch around as I didn't have enough good landscape photos and then I had a hard time just picking 3 pictures of Hannah. So, I used 4 small wallet sized photos. I love using a sketch as a jumping off point for my scarpbooking layouts but I also like to make minor adjustments, if needed, to make it my own.

I used the prefect sentiment for this page from the Clearly Sentimental About Harvesting Stamp set and stamped it on pattern paper cut with the Fishtail Flags Layers STAX and Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics. I also cut 3 large Leafy Flourishes from Black corrugated card and used the NEW Highrise Alphabet Die-namics Uppercase cut from black corrugated cardstock for my title and inked with White Mixed Media Inx.  


I cut several leaves with the Fall Leaves Die-namics from canvas material, stamped them with the script stamp from Lisa Johnson Designs - Thankful Leaves Stamp Set and then spritzed them with Caramel Apple, Jingle Bells, Candy Apple, Juniper, and Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist. I added some Wild Cherry Buttons and hemp cord to each grouping of leaves. I stamped my daughter's initials on a tag from the Howdy Die-namics with the alphabet stamps from the Let's Toast Stamp set. I tucked a Simply Scallop border under the main focal image and added a little line of red gems.


I cut 3 of the smallest Fishtails from corrugated card and added them under the photo.


I tucked another border cut with the Simply Scallop Border Die-namics under the panel. I also stamped the script stamp from the Thankful Leaves stamp set on the tag from the Howdy Die-namics and tied a bow with hemp cord.

Well, thanks SO much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my layout using this month's MFTSCRAP1/MFTPL1 scrappy sketch. We are SO looking forward to seeing your wonderful scarpbooking and PL pages using your MFT Stamps and Die-namics. Please head on over to Kim's blog for links to all the MFT Designers with some Scrappy inspiration for you!

Happy Scrappin'!
