Throughout the month of July, you can expect special sales, events, giveaways, memories, and general celebratory hoopla because we are thrilled to reach this significant milestone in MFT history.

It’s all because of YOU!

Take a moment to watch My Favorite Things – Our Story on YouTube or by watching the video below.

Chances are you make a LOT of birthday cards, and if that’s the situation, this release will be just your style. What birthday would be complete without lots of cake and balloons, right? Settle in – we’re just getting started!

CELEBRATE WITH CAKE

The Celebrate with Cake stamp set from Lisa Johnson Designs gives you the opportunity to create stunning tiers of birthday cake goodness without one cake decorating class! With this buildable stamp set, you’ll create incredible confectionary creations with ease. Mix and match the dot, stripe, and flourish layers or keep it consistent with one design. Go for lots of colors or keep it monochromatic (perhaps in white or cream) for a wedding card instead. The wide range of sentiments give you many options to say happy birthday, and small banners, a flower, leaves, candles, flames, and star allow you to accent to your heart’s delight. The best part of this stamp set? These delicious cakes are all calorie-free, so you can have your cake and eat it, too! The coordinating Die-namics are open inside to allow you to stamp, then cut OR cut, then stamp. This feature keeps our Die-namics lightweight and allows for easy removal of the die cut from the die.

BLUEPRINTS 30

Blueprints 30 includes everything you need to assemble creative cards for just about any occasion The main frame with rounded corners features stitching around the perimeter, but with this Blueprints, there’s more than meets the eye. One of the longer inner edges scores rather than cuts, creating a fun and interactive flap much like Blueprints 28. The rounded rectangle is gift card sized, allowing you to create a handmade introduction of your gift (or a custom gift card of your creation), and we’ve made it even easier for you with the gift card notches die that will hold the gift card in place. Also included is a slit die and coordinating closure die that will hold the main flap in place. Add a round or rectangular window to give your participant a peek of what’s inside, and finish it off with a sentiment strip. Let your creativity soar with Blueprints 30!

MIX-ables Stencils are designed to work with our full line of MIX-ables products and will work on a variety of surfaces including card stock, canvas, cork, chipboard, acetate, and fabric. They measure 6” x 6”. The Big Balloons Stencil features 5 festive balloons and 3 balloon accents.

GIFT BOX COVER-UP DIE-NAMICS

The Gift Box Cover-Up Die-namics creates a symmetrical design that works well for imitating a gift! When cut, the main frame will give you four openings with four stitched rectangles. Inlay the rectangles with a different color, stamped pattern, or patterned paper or set them aside for another project, and let the background show. Don’t be nailed down to the idea of a gift, though. This Die-namics with its open windows could feature images and a sentiment or make a super fun shaker card!

    Oh how I would love to win so I could purchase all these exciting new birthday goodies. My husband’s birthday is on the 18th and I would love to document it with some of these new fun things as he was just hospitalized with dementia and is extremely ill. Sadly this may be his last birthday and I want to document it…I love these new goodies. Thanks for the chance to win.

    Happy birthday! Am I the first person to read this? It says no comments! Surely not!!! Well either way ….I’m going to take full advantage because I want that voucher so that I can shop, shop, shop! I’m out on sick leave after surgery and crafting is my pain reliever! Lol. I have no idea how I would ever choose, though….I so far…and it’s only day 5…want it alllllllll! Especially those cakes! Do they come with a real cake that tastes that good? Or do I have to have someone make me one? Hmmmm…sympathy factor weighed in…I probably could get someone to do it! Anywho…I’m sorry…it’s late and I’m babbling. Ttfn!

    You had me in tears at the new Intro Video. It’s true. MFT does put people above profit. I’ve always had an absolute great experience with Customer Service when I need to ask a question or anything. I’ve had the privilege watching you grow since 2009 (still have some felt, ha!) from CHA. I even have one of your pink original bags. I still get the warm fuzzies when I see an MFT Happy Mail Box on my front porch. You are one of the most genuine and generous women in this industry. Congratulations MFT! You, the DT and staff deserve this and here’s to another 10 years!

    PS: So love the special sequin mix!
