Hi everyone. Today the My Favorite Things design team, along with some very special guests, are previewing four new Pure Innocence images to be released Wednesday, December 2nd. Here I’ve used Heart Stripes.
Totally inspired by my friend, Jody, I decided to create a little address/ phone number/memento book for my daughter.
I stamped the girl twice onto a cream Perfect Paper Panel, masking the right side of the left girl so I could stamp the second image very close. If I could have made the girls hugging one another and jumping up and down (while screaming), that would have been more appropriate as my daughter and her friends are the HUGGIEST (and ‘screaming-est’) bunch of girls I’ve EVER seen. But we’ll have to settle for them standing side by side (silently).
The sentiment “Best Friends” was stamped onto one of the die cuts that came with the My Mind’s Eye Be-Loved paper pack. The lace trim hides two hinges.
I stitched a little pocket to the bottoms of 16 pieces of cardstock (each cut to fit the pages of the album), alternating the patterns on each page.
The name/address cards are inserts which my daughter can rearrange as her “best friends” come and go. And there’s room in each pocket for a little picture or other memento to go along with each of her friends. (There are extra cards in the back.) And if she decides she’d rather do something else with the book, that’s fine too. With the inserts, she’s not limited to its purpose.
Be sure to check out Kim’s blog (HERE) after 11 a.m. this morning for direct links to more samples using this set plus three more. They are all totally adorable.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
