***WARNING***   This post contains MANY photos! Hope you sit back, relax and enjoy! :) 

Hi there! Welcome to the August MFT Design Team Creative Challenge! Just in case you are not familiar, the MFT Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we are challenged to explore our creative side using a specific theme, product, or technique. This month, we were challenged to create a mini-book. Be sure to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all participating designers who have put their MFT stamps and/or Die-namics dies to work to create a mini book for you today!
I made this mini-book for Connor to give to Emily as it features photos that were taken this past Spring for her Senior Prom. 

Let's get started...

I stamped a combination of a few of the fab sentiments from the Die-namics Behind the Camera Stamp Die & Stamp Set on the cover; partially on the actual patterned paper and I highlighted the word MOMENT by stamping the image on a Die-namics Sentiments Strips die.
Love the combination of the Die-namics Leafy Flourish and the Die-namics Medium Leafy Flourish along with a trio of Roses cut using Die-namics Mini Royal Roses and the Die-namics Royal Rose.
page 1 ~ I stamped a sentiment from MFT Complimentary Greetings on a die cut that was made using Die-namics Layered Heart. The sweet little bird is from the Die-namics Contempo Cage & Stamp Set. 
Using two of the three dies from Die-namics Hearts a Plenty and added a glittered kissed Royal Rose in the center.
page 2 ~ Features a combination of a beautiful MFT Natural Button and a MFT Pink Lemonade Button bordering a doily made using one of the four doilies from the Die-namics Mini Doily Circles and a Royal Rose.
I stamped one of the three beautiful butterfly from the MFT Inspired by Butterflies using VersaMark ink on a coordinating vellum die cut, embossed with white embossing powder and stitched on the smallest die cut heart that was made using Die-namics Hearts a Plenty.
page 3 ~ Features another one of the three beautiful butterfly from the MFT Inspired by Butterflies. I stamped a sentiment from the Die-namics Polka Dot Greetings Die & Stamp Set DUO on the coordinating label die then layered it on top of a die cut label made from the Die-namics Textile Rectangle & Stamp Set.
This butterfly was made repeating the previous steps. Love those elegant butterflies!
Using Die-namics Botanical Beauty, I made a blossom out of the print patterned paper and finished it off with a Royal Rose.
page 4 ~ Features another wonderful sentiment from the Die-namics Polka Dot Greetings Die & Stamp Set DUO that was stamped on a die cut piece made using a Die-namics Fishtail Flags STAX die.
The beautiful blossom was made using Die-namics Plentiful Petals:
page 5 ~ Features the last of the three beautiful butterflies from the MFT Inspired by Butterflies set along with a bird cage die cut made using the Die-namics Contempo Cage & Stamp Set. 
page 6 ~ Features a combination a corrugated die cut heart, a die cut blossom and sweet sentiment.
The blossom was made using Die-namics Upsy-Daisy and the sentiment is another one of the many from the Die-namics Behind the Camera Stamp Die & Stamp Set.
page 7 ~ I just love all the larger font sized sentiments contained within the MFT Complimentary Greetings.
I stamped the MFT Complimentary Greetings sentiment on a label made using the die from the Die-namics Textile Rectangle & Stamp Set then layered it on a doily that was cut using the Die-namics OVAL Decorative Doily.
I added a tissue paper Rose made using Die-namics Layered Rose along with a few Royal Roses:
and last but not least, page 8 ~
I stamped a fun sentiment from the Die-namics Behind the Camera Stamp Die & Stamp Set, cut using a Die-namics Circle STAX Set 1 then layered on top of a doily cut using a Die-namics Dainty Doily DUO die.
Thanks so much for visiting! Hope you enjoyed my mini as much as I enjoyed creating it! Remember to check out the MFT Blog for a list of all participating designers who have put their MFT stamps and/or Die-namics dies to work to create a mini book for you today!
