My Favorite Things VIP Hop!

Hello! You've made it to my stop on the MFT VIP Blog Hop! If you came by way of Megan's Blog, welcome! If not, you'll want to start at Kim's Blog so you don't miss anything! :)

I am LOVING this month's Who's That Girl? set, Who's That Birthday Girl?. You can get her as part of the VIP package TODAY only -- that's two weeks before the March 3rd release!

Here's what you'll get with your Who’s That VIP Birthday Girl? Package ($32.75):
Who’s That Birthday Girl?
FREE Invitation Only MINI set ($9 value)
Birthday Button Mix
Birthday Baby Braddies Mix
Birthday Ribbons
Sparkly Fluff in Cotton Candy (pink)

I used Who's That Birthday Girl? and Invitation Only to create this invitation and gift box. The paper is from the Cherry Hill collection by October Afternoon, and the ribbon and Braddies are from MFT!

I did a lot of distressing and sewing on this project! I paper pieced WTG's party dress and the birthday cake.
The pocket card pulls out to reveal the invitation to a surprise party! The words stamped in Old Olive ink are from MFT's Make the Date -- I love how well all these sets work together! :)

I altered a paperboard box to coordinate with the invitation. The tag was cut with one of the Labels Four Nestabilities and embossed with my Cuttlebug and Victoria embossing folder. I swiped Vanilla craft ink over the embossing to help it coordinate with the paper!

Okay, as if all this VIP goodness isn't enough, there is an additional release today -- a new set and digi papers by Stephanie Fizer! The set is called What's Crackin'?, and it's SO cute! I used October Afternoon Ducks in a Row paper on this card, and I did lots of sponging and more machine stitching and paper piecing!

Here's a closeup of the paper piecing and sponging. I used white Fun Flock on the tail!

Can you tell I'm excited about these sets?!? Thanks for reading my looong post! You can find the VIP package right HERE, right now!

Your next stop on the Hop is the fabulous Cindy Haffner! Get ready for some eye candy! :)

Thanks for hopping by!
