Hop & Shop & Get Some SWAG!

Happy release night!!!  I am so stinkin’ excited about all the August goodness, and KNOW you will be too!

I’ve been away chatting and playing in Chicago with lots of the MFT Team Members and SCS Family, so have not had a chance to stamp something up for this release.  Since I know what’s in store for you from our Creative Team, you will have more inspiration than you will know what to do with, so hang on to your hats!

For August, we have 14 new sets, a new Triple Scoop, a new Felt Collection, 4 new Die-namics & new Templates!  You can check out everything that’s new RIGHT HERE.

I don’t know about you guys, but I am totally like a kid in a candy store on Release Night.  I get so excited to see what everyone thinks of all the new Sets & Products, and am completely thrilled to pieces when you love it all! You wanna see the best part of the Release this month? It’s a CHA SWAG party!

CHA After-Party Promotion
Didn’t make it to CHA?  No worries!  We have SWAG! CHA in Chicago was a BLAST!  We met SO many of our awesome customers and shared many hugs and laughs.  One of the best things about attending CHA Is the swag.

With our CHA after-party promotion, you too, can earn some swag with your purchase.  Quantities are limited and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

Here are the details on how YOU can earn some CHA swag:

  • Purchases of $75-$99.99 will earn a free, exclusive MFT tote bag.
  • Purchases of $100-$124.99 will earn a free, exclusive MFT tote bag, PLUS an unreleased stamp set: Happy Thoughts.
  • Purchases of $125 or more will earn a free, exclusive MFT tote bag, Happy Thoughts stamp set AND a limited edition MFT pen.

The swag will be available only while supplies last.  We will be unable to confirm whether or not you will get swag with your order.  We will automatically include it in all qualifying orders until we run out.

*Qualifying purchases must require shipping and cannot be digital content ONLY, which requires no shipping.

And since I know you’re ready to SEE the New Releases and have had enough of my babbling…I’m passing you along to MEGAN, the first stop on this Hop (and new Mommy to Baby Emma!)

Teaser Time – Who's That Harvest Girl, Goodness from the Garden, Clearly Sentimental about Harvest

I am back with the last day of Teasers, the Release is TONIGHT!!!!!

Today we are previewing 3 new sets, Who’s That Harvest Girl, Goodness from the Garden and Clearly Sentimental about Harvesting, our August Triple Scoop set.

I know some of you have seen Who’s That Harvest Girl as part of our VIP package last week, but there is so much more in store for you using this set.  Jody has created another original template that will be available during the release as well.  And, have you noticed, we are offering our new templates in several file formats to accommodate electronic cutters?  Man, oh man, am I loving my Cricut and Sure Cuts a Lot!

In addition to the main image, there are 4 fruit/veggie options and 7 sentiments!

Goodness from the Garden contains a whopping 8 sentiments that work with Who’s That Harvest Girl, or completely independently.

Clearly Sentimental about Harvesting contains seven sentiments that you can use both with your gardening/harvesting type stamp sets, but the sentiments are so beautiful and so much more useful that you’ll find yourself grabbing them all the time!

Now I’d like to show off the last of our new Die-namics dies, the Sheltering Tree & Leaf Trio Die Duo!

I am more excited about this Die-namic die than almost any other die ever!  Why?  A few reasons.  1) It matches up EXACTLY with the tree image from our Sheltering Tree Stamp set. 2) It cuts AND embosses (and if you own a Big Shot, it does them both at the same time!) 3) The World NEEDS a tree die!!!!  How many times have you wanted to use a fun tree on a card or page and haven’t simply because cutting all the branches was daunting?  For me, there have been numerous times.  Cutting is NOT my favorite thing.  In fact in ranks right up there with laundry. 4) You don’t need to have the stamp set to use this die, it is a complete stand alone product!

I hope you’ll join us tonight for all the festivities!

Here is the 411 for the August Release:

- The Guest Designer Contest winner will be announced during the Release Party tonight!
- Tonight the PARTY begins right here, at 8pm EST. Be ready for fun and surprises galore!
- The August Release Shop & Hop goes live at 10pm EST starting on the MFT Blog.

Here are the amazing Creative Team Members showing off today’s sets.  PLEASE make sure to leave a comment on EACH blog, because one lucky girl will receive FREE Who’s That Harvest Girl and CS about Harvesting sets!  But we aren’t telling who’s giving it away….  The final 2 prize set winners will be announced during the release party tonight, so be sure to attend to see if you won!  You’ll need to leave your comments on the teaser posts by 8 PM EST to be eligible to win.

Teaser Time – Jolinne – Sprinkles on Top, Flapper Doodle – Hotsy Totsy Birthday, Flappers in a Vespa, Goofy For You

I have to admit that today is MY favoriteTeaser day for our August 4th Release as we are introducing a new character in the MFT Family! I’ll go over that in just a minute..

Jolinne has become a signature character for MFT now, and each month you’ll find her doing something fun and different in her very special way. Jolinne is such a heartwarming character, with those big, beautiful eyes that draw you in and want to make you part of her world. She’s young, but not too cutesy. Sophisticated while still maintaining innocence, which makes her truly something special! This month she’s celebrating birthdays and any occasion that calls for cupcakes in Sprinkles on Top.

Can’t you feel the SWEETNESS?? There are two sentiments included with this set as well. Total must have…but I am biased…

Speaking of bias… I am beyond excited, beyond over the moon to introduce you to Eloise and Ramona, the Flapper Doodles!!! I have been wanting to debut them for almost two years, and apparently, pestering (nicely, but with some desperation) works as the amazing Illustrator finally agreed to let me bring these to the stamping world!

They are a perfect size for stamping, extremely easy to color and offer something completely different to both the stamping community and the MFT family.

They are SO unique, SO different, SO amazing and I am…wait for it…SO excited to share them with all of you!

Each Flapper Doodle set has its own unique packaging, and all the sentiments and font style are derivative of 1920′s Flapper Speak. We are introducing 3 Flapper Doodle sets this month. Meet Flapper Doodles in Hotsy Totsy Birthday.

Hotsy Totsy Birthday comes with 3 sentiments that are as fun and sassy as she is!

Flappers in a Vespa totally cracks me up and makes me smile! There are 3 fun sentiments included in this set.

Goofy for You also has 3 unique sentiments, and to me, just captures all the juggling we seem to do in our many different roles. Maybe you’re familiar?? Ramona seems to juggle things nicely, unlike me with balls dropping everywhere most days!

Here is the 411 for the August Release:

- Each Day at 11am EST Teasers go live on the MFT Blog with direct links to the Creative Team Members previewing that day.
- The Guest Designer Contest is posted HERE. You’ll have until Tuesday, August 3rd to enter for your chance to win OVER $125 worth of stamps from the upcoming release and play alongside the MFT Creative Team the following month.
- On August 4th, the PARTY begins right here, at 8pm EST. Be ready for fun and surprises galore!
- The August Release Shop & Hop goes live at 10pm EST starting on the MFT Blog.

Our Favorite Find – July

With the travel home from CHA I will admit to being delinquent in posting this month’s Our Favorite Find, but I will say, it is ever so adorable, that I believe you’ll forgive me!

Please stop by to visit Dawn’s adorable Pure Innocence “Apple for You” card – I am smitten with that beautiful pattern she drew in on the dress, and that wispy grass too. I think you’ll agree that this card is just precious! You can see Dawn’s work daily at My Stamping Thyme

Remember we’re on the lookout for all of YOUR amazing MFT creations on our daily visits through blog land. Join us each Tuesday to see our Weekly Favorite Finds and just before each release to see which lucky stamper wins $15 to spend at the next release!

Congratulations Dawn!
