There are two new sets by Liana being released this month: Document It December; Journal It Top Ten!

I used the JOURNAL IT TOP TEN (along with some other goodies from this release).  for my Project Life pages, capturing my 5 yr. olds 5th birthday.  It is soooo hard for me to get a good picture of the double page layout of my Project Life album. So here is the best I got and I'll show LOTS of close ups below. This will give you an idea of how it looks when it's all put together. 

Of course the new stamps are A-dorable but I have to say I am OVER THE MOON excited to have a die that will cut the 3x4 rectangles WITH rounded corners!!! It's called INSERT IT.  I like to add tons of pictures to my pages, so this makes it an easy way to crop down my photos, so I can fit more onto my pages. 

I cut ALL of these with the new INSERT IT Die-namics! 6 pictures and I made 4 cute journaling boxes and page accents. 

Here is how easy it is to crop down your photos. 

1). Line up the INSERT IT Die-namics with your photo.  I cut mine, face down. You can also see how I label my Die-namics. I write the names on the back with a Copic Marker. 

2). Here is what it looks like after I run it through my Vagabond (you can use any die cutting machine with MFT Die-namics!). 

Now let's look at the details I added to my Insert It cards. I started Project Life to make my life easier. I loooove to scrap, but finding the time to make elaborate pages is hard. I thought, PL would 

On this first set, I used just the solid circles from the new WESTERN STARS BORDER DUO Die-namics.  You can see I inked part of the journal stamp, so I had just the right amout of lines for journaling. The teeny stars are punched out from that new border. 

On the left, you can see the fun ACCENT IT-flags and tags Die-namics and then stamped with one of the matching stamps from JOURNAL IT TOP 10. 

The other two INSERT IT  cards I made use similar elements from ACCENT IT-FLAGS AND TAGS.  I got clever with the "top 10" stamp, and changed it to the "Top 5" simply by inserting the no. 5 from BY THE NUMBERS. Nicholas turned 5 on this birthday, so I made a list of his 5 favorite things. He had fun giving me his answers. 

You can also get a good look at the newest alphabet joining the MFT line up. This one is called HIGHRISE ALPHABET-Upper case. Love it!! 

More ACCENT IT-FLAGS AND TAGS a look at the new FISHTAIL FLAG LAYERS STAX.  You know I loooove my Fishtail Flags, well now you can layer them up to your hearts content! I tucked in a large STAR STAX as well. 

I also made some larger, title inserts that are 4x6. Check out those letters. You can really see how tall and fabulous they are! 

Some more Star Stax and WESTERN STAR BORDER DUO. See, that border isn't just for western themed projects. They look great on a birthday page, too! How will you use them? 

Thanks for stopping by today. I've got more teaser goodies tomorrow.
