FREEZE Frames – Who’s That Harvest Girl, Goodness from the Garden, Clearly Sentimental about Harvest

I am back with the last day of FREEZE Frames, Teasers officially start tomorrow!  Are you guys starting to get excited for our August 4th Release yet???  Ugh.  I can not stand it this month!!  I want to show off everything!!!

Today I am 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!

I will be back tomorrow with official Teasers! Are you as excited as I am???

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

I have to admit that today is MY favorite FREEZE Frame 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!

I can not WAIT to show off what the design team has done with these sets!  Only a few more days….

Fab Friend Maren Benedict

I am so pleased to have Maren join us this week.  I just LOVE her style and her ingenious way of combining things together!  She is a total superstar, and I’m blessed to have her join us this week.

Before we catch a glimpse of her amazing book project, let’s get nosy!

<What is your signature move?  Is there one style or technique that seems to adorn your every creation?
I have a hard time NOT adding a big bow.  YUMMY.  I {heart} ribbon!

What’s your favorite MFT set and why?
Yikes.  That is a hard one.  My current favorite is Bunch of Bots because I am a house of ALL boys (excluding myself, of course!)

Any funny stamping stories?  Glitter mishaps??  SPILL!
I am a messy crafter AND I don’t always have the time to clean up.  Shutting the door is MUCH faster!  There have been many times (too many to count) where I am literally crafting on a small floor space.  Recently, I was embossing an image and completely lost the lid to the powder in my mess.  Of course I just left it on the floor and, typical Maren, forgot about it.  Needless to say, I kicked the entire jar over with little embossing bits flying everywhere.  I have vacuumed, dusted, and wiped but I still find and feel that powder around.

Check out this amazing book she made using Monsters Ink and Bling ‘Bers:

EEK!!  Isn’t this precious?????  My WORD.  PLEASE make sure to head to Maren’s Blog and let her know how much we appreciate her sharing her talent with all of us!

It's a VIP Hop!

Happy VIP Day!  I’m so excited to share with you this months VIP Collection!

I love it when we can gather products that really complement the set and make the Collection something special, and this month is no exception.  Some of the items in the VIP Collection will be released on August 4th, such as the two stamp sets included, but the other items are only available in this VIP Collection.

As usual, the VIP Collection is available today and only until they sell out!

Since I am crazy prepping for the CHA SuperShow this week, and the hundreds of make-n-takes, I am going to fill you in on the details and send you hopping along your merry way as you bounce from Creative Team Members and check out all the amazing samples!  And, there’s even a new Template, but I’ll let Jody tell you all about that!

This months VIP Collection Includes:

Who’s That Harvest Girl Stamp Set

Goodness from the Garden MINI Stamp Set

Olivia 6 x 6 Paper Pad from Basic Grey

10 Yards of 1/4″ Girly Net Ribbon in 5 colors (Lipstick Red, Cool Green, White Tulle, Sassy Black, Girly Pink)

5 Yards of 5/8″ Wide Black Saddlestitch Ribbon

10 Scalloped Note Cards in Black Linen

Isn’t it pretty!  The colors in the Olivia Paper Pack complement the Net Ribbon just perfectly.  And since the Net Ribbon is only 1/4″, it layers with the Saddlestitch for a striking effect!

Here is the 411 from MFT this week:

- All orders placed through July 23rd will ship as usual.  Orders placed on July 24th through August 2nd will begin shipping on August 3rd.

- If you are attending the Show, you can find out all of our details HERE.

- There are many items back in stock this week, including several Die-namics that were out of stock.  If there’s anything you’ve been waiting on, check it out!

Now that all the information is out of the way, it’s time for some eye candy, huh??  Next up on the Hop is the amazing Kerry!!!!
