New Product Tour - Hello!


Welcome! I'm here with my New Product Tour post for the new MFT release! I have two fun projects today - including a scrapbook page!

Today I've been working with Hello My Name Is, part of the new releases from Laina Lamb Designs.

Before we get started you should visit the MFT Blog to find all the information on the release that's happening tomorrow and see all the inspiration on offer today!

Here's my first project, an 8.5x11 scrapbook page...

I started my page by stamping elements from Darling Dots, Mod Borders and the word Adventure from Hello My Name Is, directly on the page. Then I started layering on my photos and accents.


I liked the idea of an "everyday adventure" - any outing with an infant turns into an adventure! This layout captures Jackson's first visit to a nearby coast. I stamped the Everyday from Expand Your View on an arrow from Lead the Way.


The page title was created with Hello My Name Is and the Bottom Line Alphabet. After cutting my letters from Electric Red cardstock, I layered on some glossy accents for dimension and shine. For the name label, I stamped in Factory Green, then masked off the inner rectangle and stamped Darling Dots in black.


I have the Remember Accent It - Story Titles peeking out from behind the main photo - I LOVE this Die-namics set!

On to my second project today, a bold, modern card for someone awesome! 


For this card I stuck with a bold colour scheme - one of my faves - Wild Cherry, Black Licorice, Kraft and Smooth White. 

I've used an arrow from Lead the Way with a sentiment stamped overtop again - this time to change the sentiment to your name is. For the name label, I cut out the inner rectangle, turning it into a frame. I've used the fun graphic borders from Mod Borders to stamp my background and layered it all onto a card base using the matting Die-namics from Blueprints 2.

You might have noticed I've been addicted to trios of rhinestones on my projects lately - on this card I added on of the trio on the name label for even more interest.


Inside the card I've repeated the graphic elements from Mod Borders, and added a sentiment from the set released last month, Document It - Rock On

Remember, head on over to the MFT Blog to see all the designer creations today!
