Last month’s Triple Scoop stamp set, Clearly Sentimental about Coffee will be available for individual purchase along with our October Release.

This month’s Triple Scoop Reward is titled Seasonal Sentiments. It includes eleven beautifully designed sentiments.

I’m so excited to introduce the Beautiful Bows Die-namics. This is a six piece Die-namics which you can use to build fabulous multi-layer bows from a variety of materials such as paper, fabric or felt.

You can see how to assemble the Beautiful Bows in THIS quick product video or simply click play below.

We’re also pleased to introduce the Framing Flourishes Die-namics.  This die creates elegant flourishes in two sizes.

You can see a quick product video for the Framing Flourishes HERE or simply click play below.

Have you tried our Metal Adaptor Plate? It helps your die-cutting machine cut more intricate designs such as the following designs from this release; Sunflower Die-namics, High-Rise Alphabet, and the Framing Flourishes Die-namics. You’ll find that when using the adaptor plate, paper pieces in the center pop out more easily, your die-cut is more easily removed, and you’ll find the increase in pressure makes your cuts even better. Some helpful tips include:
  • Break apart your Die-namics instead of cutting all at once to increase pressure in your machine
  • Use our metal adaptor plate for more intricate designs (or anytime you want extra pressure)

You’ll enjoy pairing this with the other new set this month Document It – December, or any number of other stamps in your collection.

You’ll also love all the thoughtful details built into Document It – December.  For added creative possibilities,  you can pair it with Journal It – Top Ten and the coordinating Die-namics that you’ll find information about just below.

Laina Lamb Designs will also be releasing some fantastic Die-namics sets built to coordinate with these two stamp sets.  The Die-namics will be sold separately.  Up first let’s peek at  Insert It  - 3×4 Die-namics. Create your own 3×4 sized journaling card from cardstock or patterned paper.

Find a quick video showcasing the Insert It 3×4 Die-namics HERE or you can simply click play below:

Pre-Release Pep Rally and Die-namics Feature

Now that we’ve teased and tempted you all week long, it’s almost time for you to shop for your favorite Brand Spankin’ New products from MFT. But first… it’s time for our Die-namics Feature and Pre-Release Pep Rally!  Our Design Team has been busy creating jaw-dropping and inspiring projects for you, and we’ve saved the best for last.  We’ve taken an in-depth look at this month’s Die-namics, while re-visiting the amazing sets being released tonight at 10 PM EST RIGHT HERE in the MFT Boutique. Before we kick off the Pep Rally we have a few brief announcements: Up to this point our stamp sets that coordinate with Die-namics have only been available in combination with the accompanying die, but we are now phasing out these combinations, and offering each product independently. As a courtesy to all of our loyal customers, this month we are offering all three options: Die-namics only, Die-namics Stamp & Die Sets, and stamp sets that coordinate with Die-namics. Beginning with our October release, we will offer each new stamp set and Die-namics separately. All previously released combos will be phased out gradually as existing stock is replenished. We hope you are as thrilled with the change as we are, and look forward to having you create with MFT! Also, we regret to announce that Inspired by Time will not be released in September with the remainder of our line-up. This particular set has proven to be a bit finicky, and unless and until we feel confident in the quality of how the artwork has translated into stamp set form, it will not be released. We do apologize for the inconvenience, but want you to know that this decision was made only to benefit you; our customers and stores that carry MFT products. We will not sacrifice the quality you’ve come to depend upon, and certainly don’t want you to wait any longer for your beloved MFT fix. :-) Be sure to download this month’s Shopping List.  It’s a handy “cheat sheet” of all that’s new this month. Here are the details about the upcoming release:
  • You can attend the New Release Party on September 10 from 8-10 PM EST HERE in the MFT forum, where you can WIN PRIZES!
  • The MFT release, including all new stamp sets and Die-namics, is on September 10 at 10 PM EST.  You’ll find all the newest products HERE at release time.
  • If you’d like to see all the designers’ posts for today, please click on over to the MFT Blog NOW.  Be sure to leave comments as you go for the chance to win one of 2, $10 gift certificates given away daily.  The winners will be posted on September 10 just before the release party, on the MFT blog.
