WTG Goes Green, WT Geek? & the new Triple Scoop Set

TONIGHT is THE night! Can you believe it???? There is SO much goodness being released tonight that it’s taken us DAYS to get through it all!

- Make sure you set your alarm for 8pm EST so you can join us for the Release Party right HERE.
- Our Release Hop & Shop goes live at 10pm EST June 2nd starting on the MFT Blog.

You probably saw some creative and amazing ideas with Who’s That Girl Goes Green from our VIP Hop last week, but there’s more goodness to come! This set contains TWO main images (it’s a LARGE set) and 7 sentiments. And one little element that works perfectly on the canvas tote she’s carrying in the other main image! I love that people are starting to feel more connected to each other and to the beautiful planet we share. Sorry, it’s the Mom in me…

Next up is Who’s That Geek Guy, and I LOVE this set! Just in time for Father’s Day, and filled with the most fun, creative sentiments EVER for your geek (or not-so-geekish) guy. There are 15 sentiments in this set, all of which perfectly fit on his t-shirt! I am in serious love. When first designing this set, I thought I was going to struggle to find the right sentiments, and emailed my go-to girls, Jody and Joanne for help. But, before they could really even respond, I had the set filled up! It was so much fun! There are a couple of suggestions from the girls included, they were too cute to pass up!

The June Triple Scoop set is Clearly Sentimental about Summer Vacations, and it’s one of my favorite ever! There are funny sentiments (Erma Bombeck), scrappy sentiments and serious sentiments, all of which combined make the perfect vacation sentiment set.

Stress RX

I needed to make a couple of quick gifts to have on hand since my current stash was used as Teachers gifts last week, and the new Bath Time MINI set was the perfect choice!  This set will be released June 2nd, TOMORROW NIGHT, along with many other sets and products.

I used two small plastic jars that I’ve collected and filled them with different bath salts as I wanted to create two different looks.

Here is a picture of the first jar I created.  I used Pink Lemonade card stock as my layering color for both the nestie oval and the top circle.  Then I punched a flower out with a scalloped punch and some Basic Grey PP and bent up the edges to resemble an actual flower petal.  Then I added a large button from the Spring Collection (BTW – Did you SEE the new button pricing??  WOOT!) and stitched it onto my scalloped flower with some thread.

One of the best parts about Bath Time IMO is that it is SO quick and easy to color in.  Seriously, 5 minutes tops and you are good to go!  Once my image was colored in, I added some stickles and called it complete!


Here is my second sample using the same basic recipe, but I changed out the ribbons and PP to better match the color and texture of the bath salts.

Which one is your favorite?

Jolinne and Bath Time Teasers

Happy Tuesday!  I hope everyone had a nice day of R & R, and more than a couple kind words and thoughts for those serving out country during yesterdays Holiday.

Today I am back with previews of our two new Jolinne’s and the Bath Time MINI set, all releasing TOMORROW NIGHT at 10pm EST.

This set just totally makes me smile! Little (and not so little) girls LOVE to play dress up, both of my daughters included! Well, Brianna doesn’t PLAY dress up anymore, she just IS dressed up. Oh to be 17 and have time to primp. Sigh. Jolinne – All Dressed Up comes with this main image and also 4 sentiments. And the sentiments work for so many occasions! Birthdays, just because, friendship, it goes on and on….

Jolinne is also in her garden this month, with a full sized set full of possibilities! There are 6 sentiments & two flower pots (in addition to the one in the main image). So many ways to be creative, and the perfect set for spring and summer!

Bath Time is a fresh take on our most famous set ever, Time for the Bubbly. In addition to the main image, which fits perfectly in your Spellbinders Oval frame, there are four sentiments which are perfect for gift giving. PERFECT. Birthdays, girls night out (or girls day in!), friends who need a little pick me up, there are so many ways to use this set I can’t begin to list them all!  And in fact, I might be back in a bit with a project to share as well!

- Teasers are here! Check the MFT Blog at 11am EST daily for links to our Designers previewing that day.
- Our Guest Designer Contest has started! Play along to win OVER $125 in stamps!  CONTEST ENDS TONIGHT!
