MFT Teaser Time! Click, Click, Click!


 
Oh do you have ANY idea how hard it was for me to keep my mouth shut about THIS one!?!?  (wink!) I am sorry to tell you that really...it's another fantabulous set that you MUST add to your shopping list!  I know it's getting long but this is such a FANTASTIC RIDICULOUS AMAZING release that I simply can't help myself do anything but gush on and on about the amazing stamps and dies that are coming out this month!  GASP!

So without further ado...may I introduce you to Behind The Camera Stamp and Die-namics set!!  YAY!!  Oh my goodness...just wait until you see the amazing number of sentiments/words that come with this set...twenty to be exact!!  I had to roll this one around in my brain for a while and thought about all of the wonderful things I could do with this set...scrapbook pages, shaped cards, awesome bookmarks, luggage tags, backpack hangers, oh the list is endless!  In the end I went with a mini album.  I'm sure I'm not the only one but I have a "thing" for the proof sheets that come with your pictures when you order them from a company like Shutterfly, etc.  I hate throwing them out so I hang onto them knowing I'll do something with them someday!  LOL!  (sound familiar!;)

Here is what I came up with and I must say...I'm in LOVE!  (grab a cup of something...there are a lot of photos!)

I'm first going to show you the album all assembled (with room to add more pages!!) then I will show you each page:

All tied up with red seam binding
There's something about ribbon tabs that simply make me swoon
Just makes me happy!
You'll notice that some have corrugated cardboard in the center while others have regular flat board.  Just adding different textures and dimension.
All fanned out with so many places to go!
And here is the journaling side
Page 1 - Front
Within the set there is a long, solid strip that helps you divide the into camera parts, which I've inked in navy blue, heat embossed with clear powder.  I've added three hysterical pictures of my son which I've matted with Kraft cardstock, I've added some fun buttons - one with baker's twine, one with embroidery floss.  I ran a large line of stitching over my embossed line and added a sentiment from my 7Gypsies paper pack 'Abundance'.  

I went through my stash of paper packs and pulled out all of the text and ledger paper I could find.  With them I created jounaling spaces on the back of each tag.  
Page 1 - Back
 The sentiment "make every click count" is actually two separate sentiments.  Click is it's own stamp so it can be moved and substituted throughout different sentiments in the set.
 Page 2 - Front
I used the word MOMENT along with the other amazingly versatile sentiments to embellish my second page.  I also used a funky charm, some metallic pearls and my Rock Candy Distress Stickles over the blue panel.

Page 2 - Back
The stamped sentiment above comes with the middle word missing...so it's "every (blank) is worth remembering" so you can substitute many words that are within the set (click, moment, smile).  But I decided that I wanted the word 'day' so I used glittery stickers instead.

 Page 3 - Front
Again, I've used the word 'smile' which is a sentiment all in of itself and can be used with many other paired sentiments like the one I have here 'picture perfect'.  I also used the new to be released and SO fun Photo Corners. 

Page 3 - Back

Page 4 - Front
Here I've used the other two dies that come with the camera - one larger lens and a smaller lens.  I inked the solid line and stitched over it.  I inked my circular sentiment on around the center of the larger lens and nestled a picture of my brother and daughter together.  Just too cute!

Page 4 - Back
I used the same technique only added stitching at the bottom.  And I used another circular sentiment (there are two) this time around the center shutter inked with a white heart from the Hearts-A-Plenty Die-namic.

Page 5 - Front
I did a page specifically for our super fabulous dog Katie.  She's just our furry angel.  I used a sentiment from the CSS about Pets set along with the solid line. (see how nicely it divides a small space? ;)  

Page 6 - Back
I struggle with journaling.  So sometimes, if I'm a bit tongue tied I leave it blank and come back to it.  That way I have time to gather my thoughts before jotting something down. 

Page 6 - Front
Again another sentiment and the photo corner.  So cute!!
As you can see at the beginning of the post I used a very large three ring to hold the pages together passing through the viewfinder of the camera.  This way I can add a few more pages as time goes on.  

Thank you so much for hanging in through this uber long post!  I so appreciate all of your support.  It makes me smile in every way and give me true inspiration. 

Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow!

Crafty Hugs!
Meredith
