Teaser Day 3 from My Favorite Things


Well, a very long time ago when I lived in Katy, Texas, I used to be a little Girl Scout. I'm talking in 1976/77, friends! Our leader's name was Mrs. Saenz and we met next to her house at the Cardiff Community Center (or something like that) right across the street from Katy Elementary where I was a fourth grader. I had my little green outfit, very similar to this one with the sash going across the front of my shirt and my mom would sew all the little badges on it as I earned them. I had some fun times at camp with my best friend, Donna riding horses, and I still remember some of the little songs we sang together. And the cookies....(that were only a buck-fifty a box then).


So enough reminiscing, you're here for the Teaser from My Favorite Things! Don't worry, I was getting to that. It's Pure Innocence day and this little one is none other than--Girl Scout (have you seen the little Boy Scout, too?). They are A-DOR-A-BLE!! When I got this one in the mail from Kim, I actually squealed, it's so darn cute, so of course I HAD to use her for my Teaser. I can envision some cute cards and scrapbook layouts with this one. Hmmm....where are all my Rocky River Ranch camp pictures?


Along with this sweet new Girl Scout, I used one of the newest Die-namics dies coming your way, the Upsy Daisy Flower Builder. Take a look at how FUN this one is! Can you just imagine all the possibilities? See the little red circles in the flower centers. They are magic. They don't cut through, but EMBOSS the little circles. Looks like seeds! Precious.


And here's the other Die-namics Die I used--Layered Labels.

Ok, so let's review:
1. All the cool new stuff is being released this Tuesday night, March 1st, at 10 PM EST right after the Release Party in the MFT Forum on SCS HERE.

2. You will want to participate in this month's fabulous Guest Designer Contest hosted by Megan and Melody. You can get all the info on that also in our MFT Forum HERE.

3. Lastly, and as always, you can find a full link list of all the designers posting Pure Innocence Teasers today over on Kim's Blog HERE. Be sure and leave comments on all the blogs...you never know who's going to give away a prize along the way!

4. Girl Scout and Boy Scout Pure Innocence sets along with the Upsy Daisy Flower Builder Die-namics are MUST HAVES!

SUSIE Q-TIP: When sewing the corners of your cardstock panels, sometimes where you have to stop with your needle down in the paper to pivot your corner ends up with that last stitch a little too close to the edge. If you see that's about to happen, stop sewing right before that stitch. With the needle up, lift the presser foot and move your cardstock straight back just a tad so that the needle will go down squarely in the corner and exactly where you want it. It will make that last stitch kind of short, but I promise it won't get noticed.
