A note from MFT:

My Favorite Things is pleased and proud to introduce you to our brand-spankin’ new line, My Favorite Things Presents!  My Favorite Things Presents opens the door for us to work with new Illustrators and continue to offer images that are “Fresh, Fun and Completely Distinctive!” This spin-off brand will begin by offering images from artist Annie LaPointe, being introduced over the next few months.  Other Illustrators, as *need* arises, will be added as we find artists and styles we feel would translate well into the stamp world and as we see a niche we can uniquely fill.   My Favorite Things original brand will continue to be drawn by the irreplaceable Christy Beckwith, whose style has so completely captured our hearts.

With that being said I am so happy to share ONE of my creations with this new style of stamps with you. You can buy your Take a Break stamp at www.mftstamps.com! I am really loving Annie’s new take on MFT.

Take a Break Bath set


I LOVE little packaging projects!! LOVE them! Especially SIMPLE and ELEGANT one’s. Its all about the packaging and details. I am lured in by ideas that if I saw it in a store the package alone would make me want it. When I saw this image I fell in LOVE!!!! Did I already say LOVE? Yeah, you get the idea.

We have a friend who’s wife is due to have their first baby ANY day now. She is due June 15th. Everyone always brings the baby a gift, but never mom. Well, I decided to include this with our hospital gift for her.

She is a naturey (is that a word???) person, and I think she will need some pampering. Plus lavender is suppose to be soothing.

I warned you previously that I am addicted to this Acetate and Art Glitter glue/glitter stuff. So here is yet another project with it. I think it really adds to the beauty of this package.

I bought some nice lavender scented lotion and spray, and made this cute holder for it.

here is a close up of the details-


Now I know you may want directions:

Cut 2 pieces of acetate 4 X 11.

Score each one at 2 1/2 inches

For front piece: Stamp image on acetate with black StazOn, and use Art Glitter glue/glitter to color image.

Let dry.

Adhere the 2 1/2 scored panel together to create a bottom \_/ <—–looks like that.

Bring tops together. /_\ <——then looks like that.

Make a topper 4 X 3. Along the 3 inch mark score at 1 1/2 inches

Place topper on acetate “bag” and use Key Tag punch for a handle.

Secure in place with 2 brads.

Now for the base piece -that slides into the bottom of the acetate holder. (the amethyst piece)

Cut amethyst cardstock 6 X 4 1/2

Along 6 inch side score at 1 and 5

Along 4 1/2 inch side score at 1 1/2 and 3 1/2

Snip sides and adhere rectangle.

Use glue dots to adhere body wash/lotion onto the TOP of the rectangle.

Slide into side of holder.

Tie ribbon around bottom. This keeps insert in securely.


So I hope you like my project! It was a fun one to do.

Thanks for checkin in. Tomorrow I have another fun project to share.
