Hello stampin' friends! Welcome to MFT May Teasers - Day 2! The new release products will be available at My Favorite Things on May 7th at 10 PM EST. All the Release and prize details are available on MFT Blog so be sure to check it out!!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by I've made another mini album again this month with the fabulous NEW Mini Album Square Scallop STAX Die-namics! I'm loving making mini albums with the NEW Mini Album STAX Die-namics...such a great concept!  So, I wanted to preserve the photos that I have from my daughter's Confirmation last year. I didn't have a lot of pics to work with, so a mini album was the perfect way to preserve the precious memories and the few pics that I have of this special day! I used only MFT  Replenishments Heavyweight card stock for the album...yup, NO pattern paper here and I LOVE it!

I started by cutting 4 pages with the NEW Mini Album Square Scallop STAX Die-namics from thin chipboard and cut the MFT Replenishments Heavyweight Card Stock to cover each page, in Red Hot, Steel Grey, Black Licorice and the gorgeous NEW Steel Blue. I also used Sweet Tooth and Smooth White Heavyweight Card Stock for matting and die-cutting. I used the NEW Lisa Johnson Designs - Cheerful Blessings and NEW Lisa Johnson Designs - Peaceful Wildflowers and NEW Wildfowers Die-namics to add sentiments and embellishments throughout the album.

To make the pattern on the cardstock I stamped with the beautiful NEW Mona Pendleton Designs - Distressed Background Blocks...LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, these new stamps by fellow MFT Designer Mona Pendleton and I inked all the edges of the album with Mixed Media Inx in Jasmine. I also used the fabulous NEW Blueprints 3 Die-namics...so many gorgeous elements in this set...including this beautiful flowers Die-namics.

We also have a trending chalkbaord art set called Chalkboard Greetings and it's this month's Triple Scoop...I LOVE this set and had SO much fun making my chalkbaord sign...I cut Black Licorice with the Vertical Greetings Die-namics and stamped with ClearSnap Ghoast White ink and heat embossed with Zing White Embossing powder. I then inked up the stamp again with the White ink and the slightly stamped off the image creating the shadow. I also added a little doodling with a white PrismaColor pencil. The heart is from the NEW Lisa Johnson Designs - Cheerful Blessings. I added a little bouquet of the Wildfowers with the NEW Lisa Johnson Designs - Peaceful Wildflowers and Wildflowers Die-namics. I stamped with the NEW MFT Premium Dye Ink in Red Hot and Steel Blue.

Here I used elements from the NEW Blueprints 3 Die-namics (did I say I LOVE these sweet flowers form the Blueprints 3 Die-namics?!) and I also used the Fishtail Flags and Fishtail Layers STAX Die-namics. I adore this sentiment from the NEW Lisa Johnson Designs - Cheerful Blessings.

I cut the tag from the Blueprints 2 Die-namics and stamped another sweet sentiment from the NEW Lisa Johnson Designs - Cheerful Blessings...I distressed it a bit with the NEW Mona Pendleton Designs - Distressed Background Blocks and added another cute flower from the NEW Blueprints 3 Die-namics with a Steel Grey Button.

I think this is my favorite page in the album...Hannah with her friends Emily and Gillian after their Confirmation.  I used the NEW Chalkboard Greetings ( This month's Triple Scoop) and cut the NEW Vertical Frame Die-namics from thin chipboard and covered it with Black Licorice and Red Hot Heavyweight Card Stock.

Here is Hannah with her Sponsor and our good family friend, Amanda. I used the NEW Mini Album Square Scallop STAX to create the scalloped mat using the 'Cut and Re-Cut" technique. I cut the Red Hot Heavweight Card Stock with the Square STAX and then stamped in Red Hot Premium Dye Ink with the NEW Mona Pendleton Designs - Dandelion Wishes. It adds a subtle detail but I love the tone on tone affect.

And this is the back cover of the album...I cut the NEW Insert It - 3 X 4 Notepad and stamped it with the LLD Journal It - For the Record.  I also used stamps from the LLD Document It - Off the Chart and LLD Journal It - Graph Paper Notes.
