FREEZE Frame Day 5

I am SO STINKIN’ thankful it’s FRIDAY!  Not because it brings the weekend, not because I’ve got two (yeah, right) days off, but because in just a short while your inboxes will be flooded with news about our BRAND NEW PRODUCT!!!

Until then, today marks the last FREEZE Frame day, and I’ve got 3 new sets to show off.  First up is Top Shelf, the May WTG set.  One of the cool things about this set is that with the accompanying images of cake, presents and bath/perfume bottles, this set will work for almost every gift giving occasion.  Birthdays – check.  Bridal Showers – check.  Baby Showers – check.  Mother’s Day – check.  Anniversaries – check…you get the picture!

Then, paired with Top Shelf Sentiments, you can truly personalize your cards!  LOVE these sets.  Seriously.

I love it when sets are versatile, and I can really get my money’s worth, and these two definitely have that in spades!

Third up is Thanks a Bunch, a concept by Joanne Basile.  There are so many occasions on which we need to say thank you, and this set truly has options for EVERY occasion we could think of!  Several font choices, most of which also coordinate with our Clearly Sentimental line, make this set not only versatile, but NECESSARY.

It pleases me no end to not only bring you the freshest artwork and ideas, but also to make those things useful, and fill a NEED.

And speaking of NEED…I’ll be back at 11am EST sharp with the most exciting news ever!

FREEZE Frame Day 4!

Happy Thursday all!  I am SO excited about today!  I get to show you 3 new sets, which is always great fun, but I also get to introduce you to our newest characters joining the MFT Family, both of which are near and dear to my heart.  (One is most especially dear having given birth and all…)

MEET EMMA & WYATT!

Emma is our youngest daughter, soon available in one-dimensional form, and Wyatt is Kirsten’s quite handsome son.

Last year, they both came for a visit and we took the kids to the zoo.  Emma & Wyatt were instantly smitten with one another!  They went pretend grocery shopping together, held hands, co-parented and STAMPED together.  It was so much fun to see!

Ever since then, I’ve been hoping for an Emma & Wyatt pair, and they are finally here!

Jolinne is simply beautiful for May and I know you’ll be delighted to see her in her new set, full sized!  Oh this month is KILLING me.  I am truly about to burst!

And let’s not forget about all those amazing MEN in our lives!  With Father’s Day coming up, our newest Clearly Sentimental set is perfect for all men.  Father’s, Husbands, Brothers, Uncles…..you get the picture.

See you tomorrow with our last FREEZE Frame, and then later tomorrow morning, the MOST EXCITING Teaser EVER!!!!

WSC – K.I.S.S. (4.28.10)

This week we are Keeping It Super Simple with the Wednesday Stamp Club, are you on board?

So often I get wrapped up in creating the biggest and best, most elaborate production of a card I never quite get it made.  Am I the only one?  I hope not!

This week, I’ve created a SUPER SIMPLE card featuring Happy Mail.

And I’ve decided to offer something FUN today. Today ONLY, everyone who purchases Happy Mail will receive the paper to create their very own super simple card!

A fossil notecard, a paper panel, bubblegum panel and chocolate kiss hearts panel, all cut to size and ready to glue.

If you’d like to chat along with the MFT bunch, join us in our Member Company Forum right HERE.

Our Favorite Finds

Welcome to another week of Our Favorite Finds! The day that we get to share all the amazing customer samples that we’ve discovered on our tour through online galleries and blog land!

I must say, I always love first discovering customers using the latest goodies!! This sweet card uses the new Digi Paper which was just released last week. Isn’t the color combination here so cheery?

Even more new release goodness in this project, and by the way, this beauty was picked up on the Splitcoast Facebook page!!

How luscious is the color combination on this Pure Innocence My Umbrella

Mercy gives Boy and His Dog a spin, what a clever girl, she’s drawn in a tree trunk and some adorable grass too!

Goodness gracious! Cindy’s coloring on this PI girl is just killing me. Simply stunning!

Cassie brings some glamour to the kitchen with her Who’s That Girl, Lovin from the Oven stamp set. Check out the pearl accessories! So clever!

Now that Cassie has baked that cake, here’s Sonja to frost and present it to the birthday girl!

I adore this sweet card by Crystal, and I’ve now got to pull out this stamp set by Stephanie Fizer and give it another whirl, just perfect for upcoming teacher appreciation cards!

  blog it

A sweet and Springy Pure Innocence from Dana with the Kioshi Basic Grey paper.

And while yes, it is the end of April, doesn’t this sweet snowman image make you smile? (I don’t want to see any snow in my yard right now, but it is still sweet on paper!) Sarah will will be ahead of of the game when it comes to Christmas cards!!

MFT Fabulous Friend Sharon Harnist

Happy Monday all!  I am thrilled at the Fabulous Friend joining us today is Sharon Harnist!!!  WOOT!  Be sure to check out her creation here, PLUS she has a little something to show you on HER blog as well.  You won’t want to miss it.

But, before I show off her amazing work, let’s get nosy!


What is your signature move?  Is there one style or technique that seems to adorn your every creation?

I’ve never known exactly what my style is!  I guess I usually lean more towards distressed / shabby chic / embellished rather than clean & simple one-layer things!  And of course I love to color – you’ll usually see some kind of coloring on my creations, so my Copic markers are always close!

What’s your favorite MFT set and why?

It’s hard to pin-point a specific set but the Pure Innocence and Jolinne collections are my favorites.  I adore these girls – probably because I’m Mom to two girls myself!

Any funny stamping stories?  Glitter mishaps??  SPILL!
Actually my oldest daughter, when she was about two, DID spill a whole jar of  Perfect Pearls powder!  Oh my goodness, she was covered in sparkle from head to toe and I was finding it EVERYWHERE for months!  Other than that, when I first started stamping, I swore I would never color images – I just wanted solid stamps I could stamp with one color!  I quickly got over that, once I tried coloring, LOL!   Also, when I first started trying to use Copic markers over three years ago (before there were so many online tutorials, education and Certification classes), I failed miserably with them!  I guess there’s something to be said for practicing, right?!!

What do you hoard?
I’m trying not to hoard too much of anything any longer because I have TONS of patterned paper I USED to do that with!  So now I’m really trying to use the new papers I get (they are a weakness of mine!), before they get too old and/or aren’t produced any longer!

Now… on to the eye candy!  Sharon created this project she dubbed “treasure box girl”.  Any mom knows that kids tend to collect “treasures” of all kinds, and Sharon had her daughter in mind when she created this gorgeous project.  It is made of matchboxes and can house anything from tiny treasures to bugs she finds.
