Please Welcome: Cindy Lawrence!

Tomorrow night, we’ll begin our week long Teaser Time in preparation for the November Release here at My Favorite Things. But first, we have an exciting announcement to share with you!  We’re pleased and proud to welcome Cindy Lawrence to our Design Team! Cindy has frequently been profiled as a Favorite Find, and also joined us during our Favorite Friends feature.  If you’ve taken a Copic Certification, you might have had the chance to meet Cindy in person and learn how to color from a real pro! Cindy will have samples to share with you throughout Teaser Time, but she’s also prepared a little something special for you tonight.  Please visit her at her blog The Creative Closet and give her a warm welcome!

Create Custom Banners with My Favorite Things

Each month, we challenge our amazing design team to create using a specific technique or within a particular theme.  This month, we’ve asked our designers to put their My Favorite Things stamps and Die-namics to work to create banners.  We have several designers lined up to bring a little inspiration your way you’ll find them linked just a little further below. But first, I’m excited to share this spectacular thankful banner from Barbara. You can see all the details on her blog: Paper Pursuits. Here are just a few of the products you’ll see today on today’s Creative Challenge Posts.  You can mix and match our various banner  themed elements to create your own versions for any number of occasions worthy of celebration!

Wish Big

At our recent release party, we had a lot of fans asking about our sweet line of à la modes.  You’ll be happy to know that two fun and fabulous à la modes will be joining us as part of our November release.  I had a little time to get to my craft desk today and I inked up the recently released Big Birthday Wishes stamp set.

My card today was created for the Hope You Can Can Cling to Up in the Air Challenge – this challenge features things that can be up in the air be it birds, planes, butterflies etc.  For me, it’s birthday balloons!   You can find all of the Hope You Can Cling to challenges on THIS forum on Splitcoaststampers.

I’ve accented with the Nightshift Navy Cardstock and Buttons.  I really do adore this color, and I’m finding navy in so many of my new patterned papers.

Lately, I’m a wee bit obsessed with the recently released Flower Medley Die-namics.   I love how easily they mix and match with an assortment of materials for a variety of looks.  I’ve added a bit of the new Hemp Cord to thread the button. 

Here are the links to the products I’ve used in my card today, but please see below for additional projects created using stamps from  à la modes collection!
