FREEZE Frame Day 3 & Wednesday Stamp Club

Happy Wednesday!  I am back this morning after spending most of yesterday with Brianna, as she turned 17.  The most fun part of the day was arriving home after shopping with her and her other mother, our next door neighbor (doesn’t every girl need two mothers?), and hearing her scream when she saw what was in the driveway!

With much help from our next door neighbors, we surprised her with an older Honda Civic as her fist car.  I am honestly so tired of hauling her everywhere, and she is such a good kid that we just found a way to make it happen.  It’s certainly not a car from my “Sweet 16″, but it’s nicer than my first car (and several after my first too!).  And, it comes complete with Hello Kitty seat covers and a steering wheel cover, so she’s in Heaven!  Happy 17th B, I am honored to be your Mom!

And now that the gushy stuff is over, are you guys ready for todays FREEZE Frame???  I thought you might be!  Although it comes with its own gushy story…

FREEZE Frame Day 3

Here is one of the 5 new Pure Innocence sets we will be introducing.  There are 2 NEW characters joining MFT Pure Innocence family in January as well, so be prepared to be attacked with cuteness!

This set, Start the Day with “Whee” was designed in concept by my hubby, Martin, based on our youngest daughter, Emma.  Brianna’s school starts about 45 minutes before Emma’s does, so when the weather is nice Martin takes Emma to the local park during that time.  Emma runs and plays, but saves the very best for last…the SWING.  Papa (as she calls him) will push her on the swing, and she throws her head back and yells “whee”!  Martin came home one afternoon and suggested to base a PI set on his morning ritual with Emma, and even suggested the sentiment, Start each day with “whee”!.  Isn’t that cool???  Who says men don’t get it…

If you’d like to WIN one of these little beauties, list your info in the Mr. Linky box below.

Wednesday Stamp Club (12.23.09)

Hi all!  It is SO hard to believe that Xmas is just around the corner!  Who’s prepared?  Not me…Sigh.

I am back with another WSC challenge, featuring another FREE TEMPLATE, to make either a shaped Mushroom card or a Fairy Wings card!  Woot!  I think you guys are liking the templates, huh??  Anything to make life simpler…and avoid measuring.  I am SO NOT a math girl.  I abhor trying to figure out card measurements.  I {heart} printing something off and cutting it and having it turn out beautiful!

Isn’t she cute??  Oh how I love Pure Innocence!  They remind me so much of Emma!

Let’s get started:

Here I have gathered all of my supplies.  I used the Simply Spring DIGI Papers in Gingham, Fairy Girl PI set, Royalty Ribbon Nest and some wire.

I printed out two of the templates, cut one out at full size, and then cut the second, purple layer out at a smaller size so it would layer well with the full sized wings.

To make my antenna, I took two equal pieces of wire and curled them around my fingertip.  Then, I taped them to the back of my smallest pair of wings, before adhereing the two sets of wings together.

Here is a picture of both wings, with the antenna between them.

Here’s a close up on my sweet cheeked PI girl all colored and ready to go!

Here is the template as a mushroom.  I love how versatile it is!  I know there are a couple of other DT Members who’ll be posting samples as well, so make sure to check out the GALLERY and when uploading your creation, use keyword MFTWSC122309.

Here are the Scoop Specials, now through Thursday!

Need a quick gift card holder? Or 33% more for your money?

You’re in the right place for both!

First up, I created this fancy dancy gift card holder (following the SCS Color Challenge HERE) and wanted to share it with all of you.

There is a FREE Template for this project HERE.

This is my gathering of goods I’ll be using for my gift card holders.  I used kraft card stock, Summer & Spring Paper Packs.  I printed out the template on the kraft card stock and cut and scored where directed.

I used my Glue Glider to add tape to both sides of the small tab area.

When I fold it over, it creates a pocket to stash my gift card.  Isn’t that clever?  Hubster brought home a gift cert from Panera Bread (YUM) and I looked at it and thought “I can make that!” and so I did!

Here is my pair of gift card holders.  Each sheet of 8.5 x 11″ card stock will make two.  I used Cool Yule and Candy Cane Kisses ribbon.

Here is a pic of the inside, holding some iTunes gift cards.

Here is a close up of one finished gift card holder.  I’m thinking the person receiving this might like it ALMOST as much as the gift inside!

There are specials galore now through Thursday:

*Want 33% MORE for your money? Purchase any 2 Gift Vouchers and receive a 3rd gift vouchers of equal value FREE!  Your gift vouchers will be emailed to you separately.  You can forward them to all your favorite  Stampers or hoard them for yourself!

The gift vouchers can be used on ANY of YOUR Favorite Things from MFT.  Pure Innocence, Who’s That Girl, Flopsey and MORE!

*All orders OVER $25 receive 2 FREE DIGI Stamps!  Enter code 2HolidayDIGIs at checkout to receive the $6.00 discount.  You MUST add your 2 DIGI Stamps to your cart when ordering for the discount to be valid.

*Flavor of the Day is In The Background on sale for $10, a savings of over 40%!!

That’s it for now, be back tomorrow with the next installment of Wednesday Stamp Club, and I hope you’ll think it’s magical!

Cooly Yule Treat Box

I HAD to pop back with another picture of the Holiday Treat Box I made for this weeks Wednesday Stamp Club.  I added a gift card in the back of the treat box, and adhered it with a pop dot.  Then I added more pop dots to secure the candy cane to the gift card.

With the addition of the gift card, the Holiday Treat Box is elevated into something I’m absolutely thrilled to hand out, and I’m sure Emma’s teachers will love it!

You have until Tuesday to participate in the WSC this week, and two chances to WIN, HERE and HERE.

We have added a whole new category so you can easily see what’s on SPECIAL!  There are 5 fabulous WTG sets (and a PI girl you’ll need for next weeks WSC) on sale through the weekend, so check it out!

Question of the Day:

I mentioned yesterday that we have an annual tradition of choosing a new ornament for our tree each Christmas season.  What are YOUR family traditions around the Holidays?  Inquiring (nosy…) minds wanna know!

A peppermint TWIST on the Candy Kit

Happy Friday!  We have a busy weekend of last minute shopping and wrapping to do, and of course it’s the girls last day of school (figures, huh?) so we will be scrambling trying to get it all together before Santa makes his visit!

I was thinking of a fun and EASY way to hand something out to the kids in Em’s class for her party today, and then inspiration struck!  Why not transofrm the I Want Candy  Kit into TREAT boxes!

It was SO super simple that I was able to knock out many of these, without breaking a sweat!  I printed out a sheet of Simply Spring Stripes DIGI Paper, and cut 4 small pieces to cover each panel, leaving room for 1 white panel for my image and sentiment.

I then stamped my I Want Candy swirled candy image (and added 1 stripe so there were an even number) and colored every other stripe red, and filled the white ones in with Sparkling Ice glitter.

Then I lined up my To: and From: sentiments so they could be stamped rapid fire style on all the other treat boxes, and put a few different candies inside each box.  PERFECTION!

Have a happy weekend, and don’t forget, today is the last day for the FREE Cool Yule Scoop Specials:

* Every order over $25 will receive a FREE Single DIGI Paper Pack (I used Simply Spring Stripes for my project, above).  You MUST add your selected SINGLE DIGI PAPER PACK ($2.95 value) to your cart.  Then, in the COUPON/DISCOUNT area at checkout, enter code DIGISINGLE (cap sensitive) to receive your $2.95 discount. Valid through December 22, 2009.

* Every order OVER $100 will receive a FREE COOL YULE stamp set!  You MUST list COOL YULE in the COMMENTS SECTION to receive your free set.  It will not be added if you don’t list COOL YULE in the comments section. Valid through December 18, 2009 ONLY.
