Also available tonight are the two à la modes you’ve seen previewed over the past two days, Groovy Girl and Time to Celebrate.  You can find the VIP package and two new à la modes HERE.

We’ll be friends forever…


I love this set.  Reading is one of my favorite pass times (although usually I’m sitting in a carpool line at school with my book in hand, not lying on the couch).    


I paper-pieced the entire image, layering everything on top of the image stamped on the pink paper.  I wanted to “decorate” the book cover but since everything was already put together, I was afraid I’d ruin it.  Right now, that book would be Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins.  I’ve already read it but am skimming through once more as the third installment of the Hunger Games will be on its way to me very soon.  (Can’t wait!)


On the inside, I completed the sentiment and, as usual, used some scraps and the Small Scallop Die-namics border die.  (I used it on the front as well.)

Your next stop along the hop is with our fabulously talented Guest Designer, JENNIFER ROACH.  Check her out! :)

Thanks SO much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

August à la modes, Preview 2

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a preview of the second new à la modes set by My Favorite Things!  I just love this new line!  So cute and so much fun! 

Time to Celebrate


This is Time to Celebrate.  The set is a bit different from the others in that it comes with the image of the girl holding the cake and several sentiments, but also the candles and hat.  Those two images are separate so you can include them if you’d like…or leave them out. 

The layout is based (a little bit loosely) on one of Jen‘s older SFYTT.


My girl is holding a big ol’ chocolate cake.  The chocolate in the cake just wasn’t enough so I added “chocolate chips” to the pretty pink icing (tiny adhesive brown pearls).


On the inside I added a second sentiment and, again, used a scrap from my paper.  (Envelopes and the insides of cards are the best places to use those pieces.) 

MFTSSDNOn the front and inside, I used my favorite border die, MFT’s Small Scallop Die-namics.

For more design team samples using this set, please check out Kim’s blog HERE after 11 a.m. EST.

I’ll be back tonight at 10 p.m. for MFT’s WTG VIP hop!  The VIP package, as well as the two new à la modes sets will also be available!  See you then!

Thanks for stopping by!
