My Favorite Things VIP Blog Hop and Shop


Hey everyone, it's ME! The February Guest Designer for My Favorite Things! Can I get a woohoo??? :) I'm so excited to get to join in with the unbelievable talent that Kim has on her team, and I hope I won't put anyone to shame with the designs I have to share with you! If you came here from the blog of the fabulous Jodi Collins, then you're on the right track and you're actually at the end of the VIP Blog Hop. If you didn't start from the beginning, I suggest you hop on over to Kim's blog and start from there so you don't miss anything!

A few details first... the My Favorite Things VIP kit, which includes the stamps used on my project and other goodies is available beginning at 10:00 p.m. EST tonight (February 15th). This is a limited quantity product that gives customers the opportunity to purchase the Who's That Girl? set two weeks early! The mini set that is included in the VIP kit for free is exclusive to the VIP kit and will never be available for purchase.

The March VIP Package is $38.25 and includes:
-Who's That Musical Girl? stamp set
-Musical Girl MINI (VIP exclusive stamp set - will never be offered for sale or be available again-$9.00 value for FREE)
-10 pack of Wild Cherry Scalloped note cards
-an assortment of white and/or black pearl flourishes and cream/rhinestone stick pins
-Idea-ology Trimming Ribbon

Also being released tonight are the Wishing You Luck and All Star a la' modes!

So, are you ready to see what I created? I hope so!

I was so tickled when I saw this stamp set! It is absolutely right up my alley because I play piano and organ at my church! And one thing I've really been struggling with lately is staying organized! What am I playing, with who, offertory, prelude, accompanist, and when are common questions I'm always asking myself. I get emails from my pastor, and emails from our worship director with all that information, and while technology is a wonderful thing, I find if I don't write it down somewhere, I'm constantly setting myself up for failure.

So I pulled out my (very dusty from neglect!) Bind-It-All and made myself this snazzy little notebook to carry in my purse! Whenever one of those emails comes that says "we're playing 'Mighty to Save' for praise team this Sunday!" or "Tammy, can you do the prelude this Sunday?" I can just jot the information down!
I just love this Echo Park "Be Mine" paper, and because it's not necessarily Valentine-themed in nature I decided to use it for my notebook. I cut a frame for the musical paper on the cover using a Labels 4 Nestabilities, then embellished with some black pearl flourishes. My WTG? image was colored with Copic markers, cut out and mounted with some Nestabilities.

And here's the best part! Instead of plain old lined paper inside, I printed music paper for the inside to jot down my notes, and stamped each page with some sentiments and notes from the WTG? set and from the exclusive MINI set!

(I kept the pictures small so they wouldn't take up too much space, but you can click on them for close-ups!)








Do you like? I'm in love with it! Now watch... I won't want to mess up all the pretty pages, and nothing will ever get written inside! LOL

Thanks SO much for stopping by today and sharing my excitement at joining the MFT Girls for this evening! Please stay tuned... Teasers for more new and awesome stamp sets begin on Friday, February 25th!
