Release Rewind - April

There were so many amazing products included in the My Favorite Things April Release that I didn't really get to play with it all yet.  So, today I'm excited to be posing as part of the MFT Release Rewind.

You'll find a list of all the designers participating on the MFT Blog. All the projects shared today have been made with the recently released MFT goodies!  I've placed links all at the bottom of the post versus a million links throughout the post. 

Up first, is a bit of retro fun with the Accent It - Reel Life Die-namics and the Expand Your View stamp set.  The sentiment is nestled onto one of the Lead the Way Die-namics.

I've been scrambling to keep up with all the photos I've been taking, and I ran across these fun photos from the end of school last year. The Laina Lamb Design stamps and Die-namics are a perfect fit for these fun 4 x12 photo pages I found.  Each is holds a 4x4 photo or layout.

These photos are from the last day of school last year, I can't believe how quickly the last day of school for THIS year will soon be here.  It's funny to see these photos because the boys have grown SO much in the last year.  ....sigh....

Up first is my beloved new Story Titles Die-namics.  I cut it from cork paper, but it would just rock with cork sheets too.

I didn't want to cover up any of this sweet photo, so I opted to tuck a File Tab Die-namic sticking out of the top of the pocket, and embellished over the outside of the photo pocket with an Electric Red button.  The "FAVORITE" is from Expand Your View.

The last pocket is used for a journaling card. I added the Mini Film Strip Die-namics, a Star STAX and then an assortment of sentiments from the Expand Your View stamp set.  I'll save you my messy handwriting and journal later.  Every day is an adventure, especially when you have TWENTY five six and seven year olds. Bless that woman.

This next set of three photos is on the backside of the pocket.  The Reel Life Die-namics is a simply perfect fit! I love the retro feel of this die, so fun! 

Reel Life -what a fun die, and as a Mom of boys, I can use about million occasions.  For a quick finish I cut a Steel Grey Circle STAX and fit it behind. Easy peasy.  Customization is a breeze with the Expand Your View stamp set.

Story Titles - oh goodness, have I convinced you yet that you must have this? I'll just use it on everything till you say yes! This little square is for my son's amazing Third Grade teacher, he really loved his year with her, and I've got my fingers crossed that my younger son will have her next year!  

The last pocket is again my journaling square The Story Starters Die-namics has a fun, super on trend knocked out type. I've stitched each of the edges in place. 

Okay, so that's my little scrappy effort for the day.  Little by little, I'll catch up with this!

Oh my goodness, Teacher Appreciation day is rapidly approaching, and I'll admit, I have a lot to do.  I usually need to avert eyes when I'm headed into school this time of year, or else I end up with a creative assignment for all the teachers.  I'll be adding these sweet personalized tags to gifts for my boys two teachers and two classroom aides.   The Typewriter Alphabet is great for adding your personalization to just about anything! 

I used my Traditional Tags as a base, and then cut my Red Delicious Die-namics from Jellybean Green and Electric Red card stocks. It is finished with a Factory Green button, a bit of twine and bit of Kraft grosgrain.   The sentiment "You're Sweet" is from the Chocolate Sentiments stamp set which is this month's Triple Scoop stamp set. 

Here are the links to the products I've used tonight.  Remember you'll find everything available NOW in the MFT Boutique

Joanne I just LOVE the scrapbooking pages!! I am convinced that I need to start scrapping again, I just haven't taken the time to buy the pages and print out photos. I'll make that a goal for this month of being a GDT... I will do at least one layout. : ) Hold me to it!! : )
