Jolinne …. Let’s Hop & Shop!

MFT-Jolinne-Garden-wm

It’s release day over on MFT Stamps, which means it is time to join the MFT Stamps Design Team for another "Blog Hop and Shop!".

The hop started at Kim's (MFT Lady) blog so if you didn’t start from there you may want to head over there now so that you can start at the beginning of the hop. You don't want to miss anything and believe me there is lots to see!

Today I am featuring the new Jolinne stamp sets that is being released today:

Jolinne – In My Garden $15.95

For my first project today I decided to create what I call a “Seed Book”. Basically it is a little book which has pockets in each page to hold seed packets or sachets.

I also used the new MFT Die-namics Grass Die to create the grass at the bottom of the image and also on each of the pages.

Here is the 1st page of my book, as you can see I added one of the sentiments from the set. This set has a number of different flower or garden related sentiments which made it perfect for this book.

You can also see my pocket on the right hand side of my book, I used MFT’s Die-namic Scalloped Scallop Die to accent the pocket.

My little sachets I have included in my book aren’t actually seeds but perfume sachets, but as they are decorated with flowers I thought they would work with this book.

And finally the last page of my book … using yet another sentiment from the set.

MFT-Sweet-Hello-Book-wm

My second project today uses the new “Jolinne All Dressed Up” stamp set. Recently while I was out shopping I found a fun notebook that had a pen at the side of it. I loved the idea, so I purchased one which I then pulled apart so I could duplicate the idea to create my project today. The pen from the book didn’t match the colors I selected for my book so I found another small pen and then covered that with designer paper to co-ordinate with my project.

Here is another view of my notebook … you can see how the pop out piece of the book allows for a pen to be inserted into the book.

Well that is about it from me for today, now it is time to hop on over to the amazingly talented Christina Fischer's blog and see what awesome creation she has to share with you today.
