MFT Preview 5 — You Are My Anchor

Today the My Favorite Things team is back sharing samples using this month’s new à la modes, On Safari and You Anchor Me.

I had a hard time deciding which of the à la modes to use first but finally settled on You Anchor Me.  I also used new Sea Charms, Sentiment Strips and Simply Scallops Medium Die-namics.  I shortened the sentiment strip to fit the sentiment by first die-cutting the strip, stamping my sentiment (to one side), and then placing the strip once again in the die, sliding it over to where I wanted the second edge cut.

I colored my image with Copics and added a ship wheel charm off to the side.  (I layered it atop a red wheel to help it stand out a bit against the blue gingham paper.)

On the inside I stamped sentiments from Thanks a Bunch and added an anchor charm.

Here are the details about the upcoming release:
