May Guest Designer Contest and a Natl Scrapbook Day Goodie!

FIRST UP – We are changing our Guest Designer Contest to the One-Click Contest, and know you’ll be pleased!

Each month, the new contest will be announced on the Sat prior to our Wed release (May 6th for this upcoming release).

Projects will be created and uploaded before Tuesday, May 5th at 11pm EST, using keyword MFTOCC0509.

Projects must feature the use of some MFT stamps or products, but not limited strictly to MFT stamps or products.

The winner will be announced DURING our release party on May 6th sometime between 8-10pm EST.

This month’s theme is Girls Day In, in celebration of all the woman we love, and all the women who deserve to feel pampered and beautiful!

I think this theme will leave the possibilities wide open to see what you fabulous stampers create!

Be sure to link back your creations to this thread so we can ooh and aah and be inspired!

SECOND UP – I am in Alamagordo, NM with Jody and Carole, and COMPLETELY forgot to post this earlier! (Newsletter subscribers received notification yesterday though, in my defense…)

Ready for a Cosmo, Girl?

I know I am!  Unless there’s an Appletini available…  Welcome to our Mid-Month Hop Around the Block!  I am your first stop on the eye candy trail, and then you’ll head to Cammie Camster’s blog for futher instructions.

We’ve got two new sets debuting today, and the one I’ve chosen to work with is What a Girl Wants, by our newest Illustrator Amanda Baird.  Isn’t she AWESOME!!!!

We also have an oh-so-familiar sight around these parts with our newest BC Dzyns set, Text Ya Later.  My guess is it’s a familiar sight for anyone with a teenager nearby!

We’ve got all sorts of fun stuff going on today in the Forum, including a HTDT? Copic Tutorial, so you will WANT to be there!

And after you read her incredible tutorial, you’ll want to take advantage of our WUW Hook-Up today which is buy any 36 piece Copic Marker set (on sale for $125, today only!) and receive a FREE Perfect Paper Panel Pack (valued at $3.95!)

That’s about it for me, so enjoy your Hop and hope you find the polymer gold at the end!

Want to win the May VIP kit?

I am going to copy and paste this directly from Carole’s blog as I am out of time this AM!

There’s Still Time!

Hey, gang!  I just read about something in the MFT Idol Forum I thought I’d pass along to you.  The field of MFT Idol contestants has been whittled down to the Top 6.  Every week they’ve come up with AMAZING creations, that I know have taken enormous amounts of imagination and energy to create.  They’ve been give this week off to take a little breather, for which I’m sure they are eternally grateful!

In the meantime, My Favorite Things is sponsoring a Judges’ Contest.  Who are the judges?  Anyone who is a member of SCS and eligible to vote for their favorite MFT Idol contestants.  (And if you’re reading this blog, that most like means YOU!)

What’s in it for you?  Well, if you win, you get this month’s VIP Collection for free!!!  That’s more than $50 worth of delicious MFT stamps and goodies!

So how do you go about winning this fabulous bounty?  All you have to do is create a project — whatever your wee heart desires; but I warn you: you’ll want to bring your ‘A Game’ — using MFT stamps, and upload it to your SCS gallery using the keyword MFTIDOLJUDGE by 10 a.m. EST on Tuesday, April 15th.

An MFT panel will consider all of the entries and narrow them down to 10, and then a poll will open up at 10 p.m. EST on the 14th for the public to vote for their favorite from the Judges Contest Top 10. The poll will close 24 hours later.

For all of the details, visit this thread.
