MFTeaser: Whee!



Welcome to Day Three of this month's MFTeasers. Today, we're showing peeks of the five new Pure Innocence sets that My Favorite Things will be releasing this Wednesday, and they are ADORABLE! The one that I chose to use first, Start Each Day With "Whee!", has the sweetest story behind it. The set was Kim's husband's idea, and it's based on a ritual he shares with their youngest daughter, Emma. In case you didn't catch it over on Kim's blog a few days ago, you can read about it HERE. How sweet is that??

I based my layout on Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #54 from last week. The papers are from the Farm Fresh line by October Afternoon. I sewed around the perimeter of each pattern, then gently curled the scallops to help enhance the cascading ruffle look. Coloring is done with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. I included the sentiment on the inside, along with some floral accents that I trimmed out of one of the Farm Fresh patterns.



Remember to check Kim's blog for a full list of designers who are posting teasers today. Prepare to fall in love with these new Pure Innocence sets!

Thanks for visiting!

  10. Amy, along with your perfect cards, you make the perfect bow! How do you do that? Can you do a demo on bow tying around a card like in this card?
