How did you meet?

On this weeks SYTYCS Challenge & Chatter thread, Megan asked all of us how we met our hubby’s, and the stories have been delightful!

Then of course, came the wedding picture uploads, which are even more beautiful than the stories.

I want you guys to check out the thread and read all of the beginnings that become lasting marriages (which IMO we hear very little of these days!) but I will show you a wedding and a honeymoon pic!

This is one of my favorite wedding pics, although I’m not sure why.  I felt so beautiful that day, and just loved standing there with Martin holding me.

Here is a pic from our honeymoon.  We look so young!  What happened???  Sigh. This is probably my favorite picture ever, so I had to share it with all of you!

Thinking of Hoo

I wanted to show you guys a quickie option for our October Kit – Thinking of Hoo.

I stamped the image (which is the owl on the branch and the thought bubble) on my note card, and again on a Cream Perfect Paper panel.  I then colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils.  I cut out the thought bubble from the Cream PP Panel and popped it up on my card front.  I added some hearts, and then tied my ribbon around the front, and I’m done!

This month’s kit contains:

  • Exclusive, UNRELEASED Thinking of Hoo? mini stamp set ($9.00)
  • Memory Box paper pack Butterfield Collection, ($6.00)
  • 5 perfect paper panels in Cream ($0.85)
  • Metal Mix Adornments Baby Braddies  ($5.95)
  • 2 yards of brown saddle stitch ribbon ($1.95)
  • 5 Scalloped Notecards in Fossil ($5.00)
  • Downloadable project sheet FREE

Supplies used:

MFT Thinking of Hoo Kit

Red Magic Dew Drop

My Favorite 48

Cream Perfect Paper Panels

AND…did you know we are now offering a Kit Subscription option??

I hope you’ll join us for WEEK 1 of SYTYCS!

We are ready to dance the night away! Are you?

Here is my sample card for this weeks West Coast Swing challenge, and here’s how I made it…

I cut out a hole in the center of my card using my Nesties, and punched out two ribbon holes at the top of the card.

I punched out two white scalloped cirlces and two pink scalloped circles to *dangle* on my card front.

Then I taped my ribbon to the back of one pink scalloped circle before I glued the other scalloped circle on top.

This is my completed scalloped circles, with the ribbon running between them.

Here’s the inside of the card with the dangley greeting!

How would you like to join MFT for Nov?

And get ALL the new releases…FREE…and before anyone else???  It’s easy!  Just win the October Guest Designer contest!  Here’s how to play:

This month Michele and Natalie are your hostesses. They challenge you to incorporate fabric into your project. Your project can be a card, gift bag, box, whatever you’d like, as long as there is some kind of fabric used in some way. For my sample (below), I “fabric-pieced” the jeans from a scrap of denim. Other ideas include using fabric in place of a card layer, using strips of fabric in place of ribbon or trim, or you can create your own embellishment from some type of fabric.

Other important details:

  • Projects must feature the use of some MFT stamps or products, but are not limited strictly to MFT stamps or products.
  • The deadline for entries is Tuesday, October 6, 10 p.m. EST.
  • The two DT Guest Designer hostesses (Natalie and I) will review all entries and choose ONE winner no later than 8:45 p.m. EST on Wednesday, October 7.
  • The winner will be announced in the release party thread as well as in this challenge thread on October 7 by 8:45 p.m. EST.
  • Please do not “double dip” for the challenges. If you can win something tangible, then your entry needs to be ONLY for that challenge.

Check out this sample from Michele – there is DENIM on her jeans!  Isn’t that the coolest??!!!

Here’s the Scoop…

It’s a Brand Spankin’ New MFT, and Here’s the Scoop

With such busy lives and so many demands, what’s a Who’s That Girl to do?

SIMPLIFY – MFT has gone back to once a month releases.  On the first Wednesday of every month, all of our sets for the month AND our monthly MFT Kit will be released.  That’s it.  Save the date!

PRIORITIZE – You’ll still check in with MFT every Wednesday for our ONE weekly challenge, and most importantly a time to connect with your MFT family.

JOY – Stamping is our hobby, and a thing to bring us joy.  With SO much going on, it’s hard to keep track!  Let’s get back to basics and get inspired to Learn. Grow. Know. with MFT!
