My Favorite Things–Wednesday Sketch #424!



Hello my loves!!





I’m popping in today to share a fun project that was inspired by this week’s Wednesday Sketch Challenge!  I used one of my favorite older MFT Stamp Sets – the Meant to Bee Stamp Set, and the Honeycomb Background Stamp.  Here’s this week’s Sketch:





And here’s my interpretation of the sketch:






You can see I used the Stitched Hexagon STAX Die-Namics  to represent the circles in the sketch.  I dry embossed to the two upper hexagons using an Embossing Pad and my Big Shot (I love this look).  And the rest is from the Meant to Bee Stamp Set.  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below.


Please click on through to the MFT Challenge Blog to be linked to the other fabulous projects inspired by this week’s Sketch Challenge.  And while you’re there, why not link up a project of your own using the sketch as your inspiration for your chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the MFT Online Boutique!  It’s a random draw, so you’ve got nothing to lose!


Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I’ll be hanging out in my craft room today – trying to get a video filmed and edited!  I hope you have some awesome plans in store for your day! Have a good one!

My Favorite Things–February Release: MFT & Friends!


Hello lovelies!!





The February 2019 New Release is now live and available for purchase!  But before you go spend your money, please hang around a little bit to check out my project for today!  It features the new Party Penguins Stamp Set and coordinating dies, and the new Tag Builder Blueprints 7 – which I’m quite excited to say had a minor hand in designing!  I paired these two new products to create a super fun pendulum card.





The new Party Penguins Stamp Set is a really fun two-step set that allows you to stamp the penguin’s body, and their feet and beak separately!  And the new Tag Builder Blueprints 7 are great for creating a stand-alone focal area.  I’m so excited about both of these new products!!  When you tilt the card, the penguin dances from side to side.  Here’s a quick video clip of what it looks like in action.  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 other fabulous projects that my teammates and some of MFT’s friends have created for your inspiration using this month’s new release!  While you’re there, be sure and leave some love along the way for your chance to win one of TWO $100 Gift Vouchers to the MFT Online Boutique!  Two random winners will be chosen from the comments throughout the hop!  All of the February 2019 New Release products are available for purchase NOW and can be found by clicking on the graphic below.





That’s it for me today, my friends!  In fact, it’ll be a little quiet around here for the next several days! Hubby and I are headed to Washington, DC for my birthday!  I’m super excited to see all of the sights and enjoy a little getaway!  Thanks so much for stopping by today – I sure do appreciate the time you spend here with me.  I’ll be back very soon with more crafty goodness!!

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!

My Favorite Things–February 2019 Release Countdown Day 2!

Hello again, my friends!!






I’m back again today to share another project featuring two of the new February Release Products that are soooo stinkin’ cute that I just can’t even imagine that you won’t love them as much as I do!  The new For the Record Stamp Set and the Turntable Die-Namics are really fun and easy to assemble!





I die cut the parts of the Turntable Die-Namics from Black Licorice, Poppy, Smooth White, and Brushed Silver Card Stock.  I stamped the sentiment from the For the Record Stamp Set, and then assembled the turntable – easy peasy!  I love the clean and simple look of this card, yet it still has a ton of interest!  And the sentiments in the For the Record Stamp Set are perfectly sweet and punny, and great for men or women, young or old!  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used on this project 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!  While you’re there, please leave some love along the way for another chance to win a $75 Gift Voucher to the MFT Online Boutique.  One lucky winner will be picked for every single day of the Release Countdown!  All of the February 2019 Release Products will be available for purchase on Tuesday, February 5, 2019 at 10:00 AM EST!




That’s it for me today, my friends!!  I’ll be spending most of today in my craft room trying to get a few more deadlines caught up and doing lots of laundry!  I’ll have another release project for you tomorrow, so I hope you’ll come back to check it out!  Thanks for dropping by today – I hope you have an awesome day!

My Favorite Things–February 2019 Release Countdown Day 3!

Hello again!!





I’m back again with another post featuring more of the upcoming February 2019 Release products!  This one features the new Birthday Blend Stamp Set, and if you are inspired by clean and simple/graphic stamp sets, you are going to LOVE this new set!




Isn’t it so fun?!!  The new Birthday Blend Stamp Set is a multi-step stamp, that allows you to stamp each letter a different color, and then overlap every other letter with the first stamp impression.  It takes a little bit of getting used to, but once you do, I think you all are going to love this set as much as I do!  I paired it with a sentiment from another new set called Birthday Bear & Friends Stamp Set, and the previously released Happy Birthday Candles Die-Namics to create a camouflage effect!  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 other stamptacular projects that my teammates have created for your inspiration!  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!  A new winner will randomly be chosen for every day of the Release Countdown!  All of the February 2019 New Release Products will be available for purchase on Tuesday, February 5, 2019 at 10:00 AM EST.


That’s it for me today, my friends!  I’ll be back again tomorrow with another Countdown Project, so I hope you’ll come back to check it out!  Thanks for stopping by, and have an awesome day!!

My Favorite Things–February 2019 Release Countdown Day 4!

Hello my loves!!





I’m back again today with TWO projects featuring several of the new February Release products!!  There's lots of pictures, so I hope you stick with me!!  My first project was inspired by a video that Jennifer McGuire did several months ago showing the Peek-A-Boo Card Technique.  I thought the Oh My Gostrich Stamp Set would be perfect for this technique, and I really wanted to try it!  I also used the new Card-Sized Confetti Stencil Set on the inside of the card.  Here’s a picture of what it looks like on the outside:





And here’s what the inside looks like when you open the front flap:





And of course I had to add a quick film clip of the card in action because you just have to see how fun this technique is!  I’ve listed and linked all of the products for this project below.




My second project features the new Raccoon Cutie Die-Namics.  Valentine’s Day is coming very soon, so I knew that this adorable little raccoon would be perfect for a super easy to make treat container (I used a mini coffee bag that I had in my stash for the bag).  These would be super fun and easy to mass produce, and very inexpensive!  Again, I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used for this project below.





Please click on through to the MFT Online Boutique to be linked to the other adorable projects that my sweet teammates have created for your inspiration.  While you’re there, be sure and leave some love along the way to be eligible for a $75 Gift Voucher to the MFT Online Boutique.  A random winner will be chosen for every day of the this month’s Release Countdown posts.  All of the February 2019 Release products will be available for purchase on Tuesday, February 5, 2019 at 10:00 AM EST.


That’s it for me, my friends!  I’ll be back in my craft room (I’m still soooo behind!) working on knocking out more deadlines for this week’s release!  I’ll be back again tomorrow with another release project, so I hope you’ll come back real soon to check it out!  Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

And here's a quick clip showing the card in action:




When you pull on either side of the card, the super dog (from the new Super Dog Stamp Set and coordinating dies) pops out from behind the city buildings (created using the new City Block Die-Namics).  Fun, right?!!  I want to keep working on perfecting this technique, and I’ll try to share a video in the near future!  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below.
