My Favorite Things–February 2019 Release Countdown Day 1!

Hello, sweet friends!!





I’m back once again with another February 2019 Release Countdown Project! And I have to say, that I’m pretty stinkin’ happy about this one!  It features the new Spectacular Birthday Stamp Set and coordinating dies.  When I saw that juggling clown cat in the set, I knew I had to make those juggling balls move!  So, I figured out a way to do that with the Peek-A-Boo Wheel Die-Namics!!  Check it out!





And here’s a quick video of the juggling balls in action:




I was pretty stinkin’ proud of myself for figuring this one out.  I used two nesting Circle STAX dies to do a partial die cut on the image panel.  I snipped off the two ends of the channel that I created with my scissors.  And then I used enamel dots for the balls, although the Spectacular Birthday Stamp Set has a series of balls that you can stamp and die cut, too!  I hope to have a full video of my process on this card later on this month!  Until then, I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below.


Please click on through to the MFT Design Blog to be linked to the spectacular projects that my teammates have created!  While you’re there, be sure and leave some love along the way for your chance to win a $75 Gift Voucher to the MFT Online Boutique.  There’s one random winner per Release Countdown Day!  All of the February Release Products will be available for purchase on Tuesday, February 5, 2019 at 10 AM EST!


That’s it for me today!  I’m still under a huge stack of laundry, as we’re getting ready to head out of town for a couple of days!  But I’ll be back tomorrow with another project for this month’s release, so I hope you’ll come again to check it out!  Thanks so much for stopping by – have an awesome day!

I love your interactive cards. I have what I need to do the interactive TV slider card but is there a video or picture instructions on how to assemble the card? I went to your 2016 blog. I love the colors as well that you use in your interactive cards. I would love to use my materials.
Thank you and please continue with your adorable videos
