I also used all three of the new MFT Premium Dye inks throughout my layout. If you haven't tried the inks yet, be sure to pop one, two, or MORE into your cart tonight. You'll love them.
All my pictures were taken with my iPhone and the Instagram app. Love that thing.
So for my boys insert. I kept it simple. I stamped the word with the Typewriter Alphabet stamp set and added some zig zag stiching in Kraft. Did I fool you?? It's a stamp, not actual sewing and I am really liking it. It is from the new Lisa Johnson line, HEARTS AND STITCHES BACKGROUNDS. I also added a sweet boy die cut from BOY MEETS GIRL Die-namics. Then if you look closely, you'll see I added the row of arrows from LOLLIPOP ADDITIONS-LOVE STAMP SET in Sno Cone ink.
Next is my title insert. I cut a 4x6 panel of Steel Grey cs and matted it with some Kraft cs, then added those same stitches with the HEARTS AND STITCHES background. The sentiment stamped in Black Licorice ink is from DOCUMENT IT-OFF THE CHART, and a cute row of PAPERDOLL BOY DIE-NAMICS was a fun accent to add. I added all three RUSTIC HEARTS DIE-NAMICS stamped in the pretty new inks and the coordinating HOMESPUN HEARTS STAMP SET.
The next two pockets go together. I actually cut my photo at a point that wouldn't interfere with what was going on in the picture. I stamped of those Lollipop Addition-Love arrows and then added a fun label marker from ACCENT IT-LABELS AND TABS.
I was super excited to finally put the ACCENT IT-PIE CHART DIE-NAMICS to good use. It is such a cute, cute idea and there are so many ways you can use it. I used the coordinating stamp set, DOCUMENT IT-OFF THE CHARTS to fill in all the little pie pieces and for my title. Which then led me to add one of the gorgeous new keys from LOCKS AND KEYS DIE-NAMICS.
This one of my favorite pictures of the boys from this summer. I used the new COUPON BOOK-LOVE stamp set. I needed a larger font to fill the space and this was perfect. The word, "this" comes from the OFF THE CHARTS stamp set. I added a few more accents from the ACCENT IT-LABELS AND TABS DIE-NAMICS.
I'll wrap up this layout with the ice cream date insert. I used more words from COUPON BOOK-LOVE and added another little tab from the ACCENT IT-LABELS AND TABS DIE-NAMICS. A few other stamp details from Lollipop Additions-Love and a bit of the zig zag stitching from the HEARTS AND STITCHES BACKGROUND stamp set. That teeny tiny heart on the label is actually cut from the HEART DOILY DIE-NAMICS. I had one left over from another project, so I added it here.
Today is my oldest son's birthday. He is 11 today, so it was only appropriate to post his birthday card here. I used many of the same Die-namics to create this graphic and scrappy card.
I stamped the sentiment, from By The Numbers stamp set, in Black Licorice Ink onto a die from ACCENT IT-LABELS AND TABS. Those cool circles with the points are also from the same Die-namics set. I love these and the squares, included. Instead of adding a fourth circle, I added a boy die from the BOY MEETS GIRL DIE-NAMICS. I still needed a little something in that space, so I tucked in a little Black Licorice Button and Charcoal Twine.
For a pop of color I added a strip of the Pinking Edge Die-namics. It's one of my favorites, especially for masculine cards.
