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!
