à la modes, Preview 1

Can you believe it’s already time to preview the next round of à la modes?  I feel like we just did that.  Time is a-flyin’!

My Favorite Things is releasing two more fun à la modes sets, along with the WTG VIP package tomorrow, Tuesday, November 16 at 10 p.m. EST.   Today the team is sharing samples of Here’s The Story.

Here’s the Story…

I stamped my reading girl onto an MFT cream Perfect Paper Panel, colored her and cut out the image. 

Along the bottom of my card, I used MFT’s Die-namics Little Open Scallop Strip border, trimming the top edge for a thinner border. 

The paper I used is from Graphic 45’s Hallowe’en in Wonderland.   I find it so easy to ignore paper collections once the specific holiday has passed, but really, so many of the patterns can be used for other projects.    I try to use what I can when I can.  :)

On the inside, I stamped a portion of the image in the corner and left the rest of the area blank for a personal note.

For a list of direct links to more design team samples using this set, please check out Kim’s blog HERE after 11 a.m. EST.  I’ll be back tomorrow!  Have a great day!  :)
