My Favorite Things - Wednesday Sketch Challenge #473!


Hello again!


As promised, I'm back again today with my interpretation of this week's Wednesday Sketch Challenge!  I loves me a great sketch, and I am in LOVE with this week's sketch, for sure!


And here's my take on the sketch!


Suuuuuper clean and simple, and makes my heart skip a little beat!  I used the Blueprints 33 large frame dies, and one of the Inside & Out Stitched Circle STAX dies.  And then I used this month's Free with $60 purchase die called Lots of Love, and I pieced the sentiment together from several of the sentiments in the From the Heart Stamp Set!  I've listed and linked all of the MFT products that I used below.

Please click on through to the MFT Design Blog to be linked to the other fabulous projects that my teammates have created for your inspiration using this week's sketch!  And while you're there, why not link up your own take on this week's sketch for your chance to win a $50 Shopping Spree to the MFT Online Boutique!  It's a random draw, so you've got nothing to lose!

That'll do it for me today, kids!  I'll be back next week with my monthly interactive card process video! Thanks for stopping by today - I sure hope you'll drop by again soon!

My Favorite Things - January Vault Release!


Hello all!


I hope you all have been enjoying all of the amazing inspiration that the team has been providing using the products coming out of the MFT Vault this month! Honestly, these are some of my most favorite products ever!  I had so much fun playing with the Party Animals Stamp Set and the Barn Die-Namics!


I wanted to make this interactive, so I thought it'd be perfect to have the chicken from the Party Animals Stamp Set coming out of the top of the barn!  Check it out!


With a little tug on the pull tab, the chicken holding on to the balloon pops out!  Isn't that so fun?!  I used the Double Slider Loop Slots Die-Namics to lift the chicken up into the air - easy peasy!  I've listed and linked all of the MFT products that I used below.

Please click on through to the MFT Design Blog to be linked to the other spectacular projects that my teammates have created for your inspiration!!  And while you're there, be sure and leave a comment for your chance to win a $50 Shopping Spree to the MFT Online Boutique!

That'll do it for me today, kids!  I'll be back in a couple of days with more crafty stuff to share!  Thanks for stopping by - hope to see you again real soon!

My Favorite Things January Release Countdown Day 3 - Sneak Peeks Continue!


NOTE:  If you're looking for my Seasons Giving post and giveaway, please click HERE!

Hello again!


As promised, I'm back again today with another January Release Countdown project! Today's project features the new Cute Conversation Stamp Set, Cute Conversation Die-Namics and the Love You Circle Frame Die-Namics!  I paired them with the spinning mechanism similar to the one I used in THIS video!  My design is very clean and simple but has that little extra "pizzazz" with the pull tab spinning feature!


The sentiment is from the previously released Sweet Celebrations Stamp Set, the perfect set for any and all valentine or love-themed designs!  And here's a quick video showing you what happens when I pull on the pull tab:

Hello loves!


As promised yesterday, I'm back again today with another fun project featuring more of the January Release products that will be available for purchase on Tuesday, January 7, 2020 at 10:00 AM EST!  Today's project, unlike yesterday, absolutely involves calories!  But they are the CUTEST calories ever, so they don't count, right?! My project features the new Sweetie Pie Die-Namics, Sweet As Pie Die-Namics, and the Trendy Tag Die-Namics to create this super sweet valentine gift!  I talked my bestie over at Fresh Cut Flours to make up some her world famous cookies for me, and she knocked them out of the freakin' park!  Check it out!


I mean, seriously!!  Have you ever seen anything cuter?!! The Sweet As Pie, Sweetie Pie and Trendy Tag Die-Namics worked well to create a tag for my valentine treats!  And the Treat Bag Topper Die-Namics and the Stitched Ric Rac only added to the sweetness of this project!  Here's a close up shot of the tag:


Big thank you to my amazing friend, Fresh Cut Flours for dropping everything to make these cookies for me!  I know that the lucky recipient of this gift will be thrilled to little bits!
