Teaser Time – Cruising Cosmo Girl and Banner Day Alpha

I am so excited to start Teasers this month, but even more exciting than this upcoming July 7th release is that it is also MFT’s 4th BIRTHDAY!!!! I can’t begin to tell you how excited and blessed we feel, and have some fun things in store ALL month long!

Today we are previewing two new sets that will be debuting on July 7th; Cruising Cosmo Girl and Banner Day Alphabet.

Cruising Cosmo Girl has THE most amazing car ever, a MINI COOPER S. Hmmm…wonder why? It’s no secret that I {heart} my MINI almost more than should be legal or ethical. So when it was time for Cosmo Girl to hit the town, there was only one set of wheels for her! She comes with 5 sentiment options and an accessory image as well.

I can’t wait until you can see all the amazing ways the Design Team has used this set!

It’s perfect for new cars, shopping, and, with the keys in her hand, Cosmo Girl could be stepping into a new home…so many fun possibilities!

Banner Day Alphabet is the perfect clean font for use in all your projects, and what’s more is that there is an ADDITIONAL product you’ll NEED this alphabet for. Can you guess what it is? Hint….think Die-namics….

Here’s the 411:

- Teasers are posted each day at 11am on the MFT Blog

- The Guest Designer Challenge is posted RIGHT HERE. Play along for a chance to win OVER $100 worth of stamps and the opportunity to play along with our talented Creative Team.

FREEZE Frames – WT Gardening Girl, Green Thumb and CS about Gardens

Our July 7th Birthday Bash is getting closer!  Tomorrow Teasers officially start, and I can announce more of the SUPER fun things we have in store for you, so make sure you have the date marked on your calendar.

Today is the last day of Freeze Frames, and we have 3 sets to preview for you.  Who’s That Gardening Girl. Green Thumb MINI and CS about Gardens, the next Triple Scoop set.  How many of you have taken advantage of the FREE Triple Scoop sets?  You can read all the deets HERE.

This month we are releasing Who’s That Gardening Girl, and even if you don’t garden, there are hundreds of uses for this set!  You’ve seem some wonderful eye candy on the most recent WTG Hop, but there is SO much more to see and creative possibilities to be unfolded!

Who’s That Gardening Girl comes with the main image and 5 different plant/veggie/flower options to place inside her planter, and 1 sentiment.

We recently started a veggie garden, another thing I NEVER thought I’d be doing, but we have SO enjoyed going outside and picking a tomato from the vine and slicing it while the flavor is at its peak.  My WORD, there is a serious difference between fresh and store bought!

Green Thumb MINI set offers 8 different sentiment options to accompany WT Gardening Girl, each just perfect to add as a tag to any home made (or home prepared) item.

Clearly Sentimental about Gardens contains 8 beautiful quotes about the miracle of growing and the pleasure of gardening, and is yours FREE with the purchase of 3 full sized sets at $15.95 or higher!

Birthday Bash

Hi everyone!  This is Jody, hijacking Kim’s blog (sorry, Kim).  A member of the design team, Julie Dinn, thought it would be fun if she got together a group of Kim’s friends (42 to be exact) to celebrate Kim’s birthday in style.  After much organization, this birthday bash is a GO!  Here is a word from Julie: 

42 of Kim’s fabulous friends have taken over her blog today to wish her a very Happy 42nd Birthday! Kim’s birthday isn’t actually until Monday, but we wanted to make sure we had a full day to celebrate this fabulous woman before the long weekend and the MFT Teasers started.

As most of you know, Kim, is the incredibly talented woman behind MFT. She is amazing sweet, kind, warm, loving, generous and funny. If you are lucky enough to call Kim a friend you are truly blessed. Kim has brought so much joy and happiness into our lives that we wanted to take this opportunity to celebrate her on her birthday.

Kim, grab your favorite Appletini, sit back and relax, it’s time for your surprise Birthday Blog Bash! 

Happy Birthday Kim! We love ya girl!

Just for You Jolinne is her SWEET, sweet self, just looking for someone to hug.  She comes complete with this main image, 3 sentiments and a small butterfly accessory image.  She’s just oozing with sweet charm, isn’t she??

Rhonda shares a truly clever way to incorporate cork into your project on this cheery card using the latest Who’s that Girl – she was available as part of the VIP Kit, and will be released next week as an individual set!

I’m not sure what’s cuter, the fun dirt mounds stamped to cork for a really fun effect, or these adorable pink mud boots. Be sure to check out the glitter clouds in the background. This card from Lynda brought such a smile to my face!

FREEZE Frames – New Pure Innocence Sets!

I’m back today with what has become one of the most anticipated preview and Teaser days, when I preview the newest Pure Innocence sets!

This month we have some of the most fun and delightful sets ever, and no small part of that is represented by our July Pure Innocence release.

All 4 new sets will be released on July 7th, as part of our 4th birthday BASH, so mark the calendar NOW.  Seriously.

Some of you know my oldest daughter, Brianna, made the varsity cheerleading squad and so, of course, you know what THAT means!  A Cheerleader PI!

She comes complete with pom-poms, a pennant and 4 combine-able some super fun sentiments, and I can’t wait until you see the amazing ways the DT has used her!

Of course what on Earth could she be cheering for except…

The MVP!  Isn’t he CUTE???  Er…I mean rough and ready to kick some butt on the field???  Complete with 6 sentiments and a football, he’s YOUR MVP!

Are we there yet???  How many times have we all heard THAT?  This month, this adorable little girl is packed and ready for summer vacation (or holiday as she’s from England) and has the sweetest collection of 3 goodies and 4 sentiments along with her.  Prepare to be uttering “awwwwww” and “ooohhhhh” when you see what we’ve got in store for you when Teasers begin.

I am SO STINKIN’ excited to show off Tea Party!  Just think little girl’s room tea party with ALL the fixin’s.  6 accessory images and 1 sentiment are included in this SUPER sweet set.  Wow will not even begin to cover it!

WSC – A Trio of Ribbons (06.30.2010)

Happy Wednesday!  This weeks challenge was truly a challenge for me, and I even had to call in reinforcements for how to work it in!  We are creating a project using 3 different types of ribbons.

I decided to make a 3 x 3″ Treat Box featuring Bunch of Bots and the Robot DIGI Papers.

I cut a 2.875″ x 2.875″ piece of paper and then using a glue dot placed 4 pieces of chocolate on the sheet and slipped it inside the 3″ x 3″ box.  I then used a frame (hint…hint…) to stamp one of the Robots in the set and then used a rectangle punch to remove a small area so I could then add a small strip of paper that I stamped one of the sentiments from the set onto and then placed it in the opening so it appears that it is “feeding” out from the opening.  The idea isn’t original to me, but i still {heart} it!  Boy it’s the little things that makes a crafter happy, huh?

I added some additional embellishments like Baby Braddies and of course the three ribbons needed for this weeks Wednesday Stamp Club!
