Fond Farewells and a Fresh Face

Sadly, we’re saying goodbye to five of our lovely and talented designers today. I know you’ll agree that they’ve contributed so much to our community with their incredible generosity of time and talent. We’ll miss them greatly and wish them all the absolute best in the future. To each of you, thank you.


In addition to goodbye, we also have a hearty welcome to share. In June, Teri Anderson was our guest designer and she produced some truly stellar work that blew us away in its creativity. We asked her to join our happy team and she said yes. Hooray! Beginning with our July Release Countdown (that’s just two days away if you’re curious,) Teri will be a regular member of our Creative Team. Please join us in welcoming her!


Teri’s created this beautiful card to introduce herself. I think it’s pretty apparent why we’re so giddy to have her, right?


Welcome Teri.

    A fond farewell to all of the designers who are leaving MFT! I have appreciated your projects and am grateful for the inspiration. GOOD LUCK to ALL! :)

    And to Teri … I’ve been following you for a number of yrs. I was thrilled to see you as the June guest designer for MFT and left a comment on one of your June guest designer cards saying I wished you could design for them every month. OMGosh and Too Cool that my wish came true! I admire the way you put it all out there, march to the beat of your own drum and let your great personality shine through your creations. Your creative approach to design, color combos, clever stamping and use of techniques, and so often, your unique way of layering and/or embellishing are such an inspiration. As I open your blog posts, I wonder what fun surprises might be there. Happy, Happy, Happy for you … and me and all of us MFT patrons! MFT is soooo lucky to have ya! Huggles, Gabby
