Making A List!

MFT-List-wm

Hi everyone,

I have another MFTeaser’s to share with you all today in readiness of the MFT Stamps new release, this coming Wednesday 3rd November.

Today the MFT Design team are featuring the “Pure Innocence” range, and this month there will be three brand new Pure Innocence sets to be released … you are going to love them!!!!!! The PI’s to be released include: PI Making A List; PI Naptime and PI Bedtime Story.

I am using the new PI Making A List stamp set for my project today. Every time I see this set it has me singing “Santa Claus is Coming To Town” …. you guys are lucky there is no sound on this blog hehe! This set also reminds me of my eldest daughter who is always making lists of some sort hehe … we often joke and say she should be Santa’s helper with all the lists she makes!

Anyway onto today’s project, as you can see instead of making a card this time round I created a notebook. I like to keep my present giving straight so having a notebook to list the ideas you have for presents for everyone comes in handy. You can cross off those you have purchased so you don’t miss out of anything.

I created this book using my new Cinch that I purchased recently …. I can thank Jody for that because before she started telling us about hers I had no idea what a Cinch was LOL … but I love it!

As you can see I paper pieced the little girls dress. I also used two of MFT’s Die-namic dies on this book … I love the die-namic dies. This time round I used the new Little Open Scallop Border Die which will be released on Wednesday and the Flower Trio & Leaf Trio Die.

Here is the inside of my book. I used the To Do List template which is available from MFT Stamps. The wording “Name” at the top of the page isn’t part of MFT Stamps To Do List Template, I added this in my Photoshop Elements program before printing out my pages.
