{MFT Teasers- Day 3} The PI's

Hey, Hey, Hey!!! Are you freaking out for todays previews?? I know the PI's are an MFT fan fav, and there are no less than FIVE Pure Innocence kids making their stamping debut!
  • My Little Firecracker
  • Ring Bearer
  • Wedding Flower Girl
  • Popping By
  • Rose
***WARNING***
Go potty, get a drink, and put your feet up! This will be the longest post you are likely to ever come across!!!! Please bear with me:)
I have two projects to show you tonight! First of all, I went a different direction and made a 12x12 scrapbook page! And I used a set that at first I didn't think I'd have much need for: My Little Firecracker. Being a Canadian, I obviously don't celebrate the 4th of July, which is the holiday that this set is geared towards, but I did some thinking and decided that I could go with a Canada Day theme! So if you are a Canuck like myself, don't throw the baby out with the bathwater just yet! Minus some of the American sentiments, this can be a pretty fun little set for stampers to the North too!
Here is my layout:

Now, I have no little girls, and maybe this is a bit of a feminine layout for a picture of a boy, but who cares anyway?? Obviously this is an older Canada Day pic of my eldest son at my parents cabin a few years ago...maybe this Canada Day I'll swap out this pic for one with my nieces in it! I used the Fresh Cut Grass dienamic and my new love, the Fishtail Banner dienamic for the year. My cricut cut out the maple leaves! The girls all have paper-pieced dresses from scraps in my stash, glitter applied to their sparklers and are coloured in various skin tones to represent a diverse nation! I'm VERY new to colouring anyone non-caucasian, so this was challenging, but soooo fun! I have a few caucasian skin tones(including a little freckle-faced redhead!), as well as asian, latina, and african! I think it looks awesome if I do say so myself!! Yay diversity! lol






Okay- are you still here??? I know- I warned you though! For my second project, I used 'Popping By'...This is probably my favorite of the PI's cuz I {heart}movies!! Buying, renting, theatre, made for TV...whatever! I have been wanting to go to a few new releases..Bridesmaids esp.- that's gonna be hilarious! I thought that I'd ask my mom, she really deserves a night out! I made this kind of an invitation type card.
Haha- mom and I don't dress like this and wear lil flower barrettes in our hair, but the symbolism is there!! Best Friends and popcorn- what more could a girl ask for?!
Okay, there is ALOT going on in the card! lol! Plastic filmstrip (torture to work with- can't wait to get that new filmstrip die!! I'm sure it won't fly back and try to slap me in the face everytime I try to place it;), doo-hickies holding the strip in place, sentiment tag, clear plastic stars, butter yellow enamel brads, sequin stars, popcorn and pop up on dimensionals, spica clear glitter pen here and there, and my MOST favorite part of the card....the tickets!!! I used some ancient black type alphabet stickers and spelled out TIX (does anyone call them that even?? I don't know;) and again used the Fishtail banner and a fun little kraft envelope and stuck some real little tickets in there!!

Here is a shot of the 'tickets' out of the envelope...I spelled out You and Me with the same stickers. Freakin' cute or what???? She's gonna flip;)




The inside, with the best sentiment EVAH!! Ah, so true;)
The 'chicks' stamped again, more stars and strip!


Okay- now that you've stayed for the 60 minute duration it took to look at all my pics, if you still have any energy left, head on over to the MFT blog to see a list of links to more PI masterpieces!!
Thanks a million:)
