MFT January VIP Hop

Hey all! Happy VIP day! I'm so excited for you to see this month's VIP kit and January's Who's That Girl set. I had a fun time stamping with it and can see myself creating much more. If you're just stumbling upon this post, you'll want to go back to the beginning of the hop at Kim's blog.
I did something a little different for my VIP post. True confession time - I've put on some weight this year, and I'm ready to do something about it. But I'm the kind of person who needs to be constantly reminded of a goal - mostly because I have poor willpower. So I made a couple of items that I can place around my house to encourage me.

I started with a canvas tag that will hang from my bedside lamp. The best time for me to exercise is first thing in the morning, but I love my sleep. I'm hoping that looking at this before I go to bed and again when I get up will help. I stamped the image onto X-Press It Blending Cardstock and layered it with the new Layered Label Die-namics die that comes in this month's VIP kit (it will be available for sale separately on Jan. 5th). I used the sentiment from the Get A Move On free mini set that is exclusive to the VIP kit. I LOVE this sentiment!
I found this frame at Michael's in the dollar bin (well $1.50 here in Canada). I stamped another sentiment from the Get A Move On free mini set and cut it out with the oval from the layered label die. These colours match my kitchen so I created this to sit on the big window over my sink. I love that it's pretty, it reminds me of my goal, and it's not too obvious when we have company over.
Thirdly, I made a simple tag to attach to my bathroom mirror (since I'm looking in the mirror at least twice a day). I cut the largest layered label from Hot Fudge cardstock and used scraps for the other two layers. I again used my favorite sentiment from the exclusive mini set.


So no card - but just some self-motivation (hopefully). I know that I'll be able to make journals and cards for friends as well with this set.

The VIP kit is available now and can be purchased HERE. It's only available for one day or while supplies last. Both à la modes are also now released and can be found HERE. Thanks so much for hopping by! Now you're off to see Susan - I know she's got something totally drool-worthy for you to see!
