I used the Scallop Spinner set here to create a large flower :)I punched out all the areas to create solid petals on the flower. You'll also see some of the journaling stick on's in the lower right corner too!

To make this project you'll need
a metal heart tin--I picked a few of these up at Dollar Tree at the first of January
6x6 Cover Up, I used the princess crown
Take the top off of the tin and lay on the backside of the 6x6 cover up. Take a marker and trace around the lid shape. Then cut out according to your tracing. Peel off the backing and apply to the front side, just like the regular stick on process. Rub down really well and then apply the design to the top of the tin. Since you trimmed the design to fit, you shouldn't have any excess on the sides but if you do, just rub down over the edges of the tin. Now you can line the inside with some fun Valentine paper and put in some yummy chocolates!

My peek today is another take on the new shaped pages. Instead of making an album out of my pages, I made this banner.
I covered each shaped page with printed paper, and then attached a glitter letter and some other goodies. (Would you believe these letters were SILVER when I started out? I painted them with green alcohol ink!)

Our latest addition to the Build-a-book line is the Perfect Shapes pages.
We're talking circles, scallops and other fun chipboard shaped pages that fit perfectly in a 6x6 mini albums.
I started with a pair of acrylic covers that I colored with alcohol inks.
That's when the fun started. Check out the variety of shaped pages I used and how they all overlap onto the pages that follow, creating a peek of the pages to come.
Your creative options are limitless!

One of MOSD's partner Retailers: Lickety Split Scrapbooks will be using the Long Division in Creating Keepsakes classes all over the USA! Wendy's classes are a lot of fun and you get to learn great ways to use the products from MOSD.
The album was designed by the oh so talented Wendy, the owner of Lickety Split Scrapbooks.

Today is the kick off to SNEEK PEEK WEEK here at MOSD! I am pleased to bring you one of the new acrylic albums that will be shown at CHA Winter...The LONG DIVISION!! The Long Division Album Comes with 2 acrylic covers and 5 tabbed dividers. It's perfect for so many different projects. I chose to do a birthday planner, but you are truly only limited by your imagination (and we are even here to help you with that!). You can flip the book so that the tabs face down as well. Bind it with our new colored spiral binding rings (oops...let another peek out of the bag!)...use a Bind It All (like I did here)...or just tie with ribbons! The covers are not pre-punched, allowing you the different binding options.
You truly can't go wrong with this album!! Want more bang for your buck? Add notebook paper between the tabbed inserts for an assignment book! It's the perfect size for using composition book papers!
Stay tuned for more peeks every day this week...and maybe even some giveaways!! And don't forget to visit our booth at CHA! Booth 2801!!! We will be doing some AWESOME Make N Takes!! You don't want to miss them!!! I'll be there...so make sure to stop by and say Hi!!
Want more sneeks and prizes? Stop by my blog this weekend and sign up!!

This vintage stamp is called "Picking Flowers with Mom" and is made by The Stamping Ground. The Happy Valentine's Day stamp is Close to My Heart. I cut the scalloped circle with a Nestabilities die, and then ran it through the Big Shot using the Cuttlebug Divine Swirl Embossing Folder. Then I rubbed some cranberry alcohol ink and some old paper distress ink over it, crumpled it up, and attached it to the project.
Hope you enjoyed my trek into Vintage! See you on Friday for my CHA Sneak Peek!

I was looking at all my MOSD products and noticed I had one Big Boy clear cover. Well, what can you do with ONE cover? (And what happened to the other one?!) So, I cut the Big Boy in half and rounded the corners with the Zutter Round-it-All, and made this clear Valentine "card."
I stamped the vintage lady with a stamp called "Opening Night" from The Stampsmith. (Isn't she great?! She looks like an old photograph!) I used Tim Holtz distress ink (vintage photo) to stamp the lady, and then tore the edges and smudged on more distress ink (old paper). The other stamps - "be mine forever" and the postage stamp - are from Close to My Heart (Vintage Valentine).
Here are some close ups.
I made this paper flower following a technique I saw on Leah Fung's blog. Mine are not as nice as the one's on Leah's blog, but...oh well. I like mine anyway! I spayed the paper with some Gloria Mist (my version of Glimmer Mist).
The word "Love" is chipboard that I inked with Lipstick Red Colorbox Chalk ink, then glazed with a thin layer of Modge Podge. I then ran the letters through the Big Shot with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder.
