Funky Fossil - Suitcase MDF


 I thought I'd give you a bit of preview of an awesome MDF package that is part of the November Funky Fossil new release

I decided on a Christmas theme and used the Merry & Bright papers paired up with Monochrome Magic papers to cover the box. I used a black sharpie pen round all the edges of the box pieces before adhering the papers.

I chose one of the Winter Chiccas for the front of the suitcase - also on The Craft Store tomorrow. The greeting is from Festive Phrases.

So that's the suitcase all done. Now what else comes with this package? Well there's this lovely MDF book cover set. I decorated it to match the suitcase and then added in some pages. My idea was that it would make a great little Christmas booklet to add all those essential Christmas lists. 

The front cover has a Winter Chicca head next to a Christmas Trees die cut and a greeting from Festive Phrases.

The inside cover has another Christmas Trees die cut and some holly from Festive Robins stamped, coloured and hand cut. 

I started the list booklet with Traditions - made on the computer - and added the mistletoe from Festive Robins and some enamel dots for the bullet points.

The next two pages are for gift and card lists. I used another of the Winter Chicca heads - thought she would like gifts - and a bauble from Festive Phrases.

Next are lists of favourite music and films. The A7 Face The Music and Affirmations - new tomorrow -  stamps created fab backgrounds. I added the robin and ivy from Festive Robins and the snowman and flakes from Christmas Characters into the mix.

Just the final page and inside back cover to sort now. Well it wouldn't be Christmas without food and I was thinking chocolate log with the stamps from Festive Robins. And you have to BELIEVE! It's from Festive Phrases and the beautiful die cut is Star Wreath.

But that's not everything that's included in this package. There are also ATC cards to be decorated. 

I kept with the same colours and theme using Merry & Bright and Monochrome Magic papers, washi and images from Naughty Or Nice.

And if you've ever wondered about what to put on the back of ATCs Funky Fossil now has the answer with this new A7 stamp.

And since my use of this package is Christmas themed I turned two of the ATC cards into gift tags.

I simply covered them in paper and added the adorable gnomes and bauble from Nordic Noel. The greetings are from Christmas Small Print and I added some enamel dots to finish off.

I kept the back simple, just paper and some adhesive letters.

Well that's quite a fun filled package don't you think?  

If you've ever thought MDF is not for you I urge you to think again. I have to say it's not usually my thing, but I'm so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and gave it a try - it was just so much fun and I loved playing with it!

Thanks so much for looking today, I'm really pleased to have had your company. Gold stars to anyone who's read down to the bottom of this loooong post!

Stay safe and keep crafting!
