What's Up Wednesday Revamp News!

Isn’t this PRECIOUS!!!!  I about fell of my chair when I took a gander at it this morning, so stinkin’ cute!  It was created by scrapperLinsey for the MFT Ambassador Program.  LLLLLOOOOOOOVVVVVE it!

I wanted to post the new format for WUW, now that it’s completed.  I hope you recognize some of YOUR suggestions and desires in the mix, we paid close attention to the feedback we’ve received regarding the WUW and Release Revamp!  

Here is YOUR new What’s Up Wednesday! (WUW)

Running Time – 12pm – 9pm EST

I Spy – Each week, several Design Team members will go lurking in the gallery to find their favorite MFT Customer Creations and we will celebrate them on a new thread each week!  The cards will also be featured on my blog as well with a creative shout out to the stamper!

MFT Hot to Trot Once a month, an MFT Customer will be featured in our Forum on the 3rd Wed of the month.  Stay tuned to find out who the Hot to Trot designer is for November 19th! 

First 15 – The First 15 orders every Wednesday (starting at 12am each Wednesday) will receive a special FREE gift, much like the First 50 on release night. I will post the last order number that qualifies each Tuesday night.

WUW Special of the Day – Each week we will offer a special, discount, or product bundle.  WUW Special of the Day will be good ONE DAY ONLY, through midnight Wednesday night.  The WUW Special will be posted every Wed morning by me on my blog and in our forum.  I will also send the special via e-newsletter. 

WUW How’d They Do That? – Each week, one special technique or project will be featured in our Forums.  You’ve asked us repeatedly for tips. techniques and how-to’s, so we’ve made it happen! Every week, on WUW, there will be something new to try! 

WUW Weekly Challenge – Our Weekly WUW Challenges will continue, so check our Forums each Wed morning!

WUW We pick 3 – We will select 3 stampers who participate in the WUW challenge of the week and offer them a $5 gift cert.  The selection is random, and will be the following Wed for the week before. (For example, we will choose on Nov 12th those who’ve uploaded to the SCS Gallery from Nov 5th to the 11th)

We hope you like to new format!  We will be popping in and out of our Member Company forum during the WUW hours to answer questions, chat and just hang out in a more relaxed environment. Just think of it as a coffee house chat instead of our usual Cocktail Parties!

We hope to see you there!

Wanna join the MFT DT?

Then play along in our monthly Guest Designer challenge!  Here are the deets:

Do you want the opportunity to be My Favorite Guest Designer for December?

All you have to do is complete the challenge below and include “MFGD12” in the keywords and link your card back to this thread. You have until 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time Sunday night ( 11/9/08 ) to complete this challenge. The winner will be selected from the entries and posted on Monday.

CHALLENGE: Watercoloring
Watercoloring is such a pretty way to color an image. Plus you don’t need to just use watercolor paint/pencils – you can use re-inkers, pearlescent watercolors, Peerless watercolors and more choices I’m not thinking of right now. Use a watercoloring technique on your project for this challenge.

We’re looking for original and unique projects, something that makes us say “Wow – that’s so cool!!” Please make sure the project you submit is a new one and not something already in your gallery.

As a My Favorite Guest Designer, the winner will receive ALL of the new releases for December before anyone else AND will be able to post early with the design team. We will also choose 2 “Ambassadors” who will receive the any pre-released mini set, plus $10.00 in MFT “cash”, PLUS they are invited to host a challenge during the next MFT Release Party!

Don’t forget to put MFGD12 in the keyword section and make sure your project is uploaded before 10:00 pm Eastern time on Sunday.

If you have any MFT stamps, please use them on your design if you can. If you don’t have any (yet!), feel free to play along. The judging will not be based on stamps used, rather on your execution of the challenge!

If you don’t have a gallery on Splitcoast, create one in our Forum HERE!

Just one more night…

Hi all!  I wanted to show off a few of the samples from this months release.  This Flopsey was created by Susan Liles, I LOOOOVVVE her!!!  WIth her precious pink bow!

Jessie created this Who’s That e-Girl? sample, I am do loving the detail on the couch!

This It’s a Cupcake Kind of Day is from Ana, it totally looks good enough to eat!

Susan Liles made this one of Geranium, and that image just pops off the page!

Candice, who was our featured stamper this month, created this sample.  It was such a joy having her as our first ever featured stamper!  We will have a new featured stamper joining us next month so if you’d like to be part of the MFTeam, post away on your blogs and galleries with your MFT creations!  Make sure to list MFT in the keyword section so we see it.

A Treat Winner!

This beauty was created by Shannan for the November release, and even though I was busy seeing Tina Turner LIVE, the party was a rousing success!  Cammie and Jody did a GREAT job hostessing, and of course as I read back through all the posts, I can see there was no shortage of chatting and fun!

On another note, I wanted to take a moment to mention the experience I had while watching the election results Tuesday night, and I want to preface this by saying I am not telling you who I voted for, nor do I want to know who you voted for.  My intention in sharing my experience is one of absolute pride, and has nothing to do with party affiliation of any sort.

When our President elect was announced, I was not prepared for the overwhelming emotion I felt. Not because a particular person or party had won, but because for one moment in time, we, as one nation, under God, were color blind.  I felt a huge paradigm shift, I don’t know how to explain it, but I hope you felt it as well.  Something changed in that moment, for good, and I hope, forever.  In that moment, I sincerely felt our Father, in whatever form or fashion you worship It, was smiling proudly.

I just wanted to share that and hope that some of you also felt it, I can’t be the only sap can I?  I have seriously never cried after an election before, I don’t know that it will ever happen again, but it sure happened Tuesday night!  

Have a great Thursday!

Release Day Blog HOP!

Happy Release Day everyone!  I am SO stinkin’ excited about these new sets I can barely contain myself!  This is the most fun part of my “job”, showing you what we’ve been hard at work on all month long.  This beauty features It’s a Cupcake Kind of Day! by Jessie Rone, isn’t is delightful?

We are having our first ever release day Blog HOP!  I’m up first this time, so next on the list is THE fabulously talented Ana, so check her out for further instructions and the next blog on the trail. There might be something worth playing for at the end of the hop….I’m just sayin’…

We hope to see you tonight at the release party, I’ve started an insider thread to start filling everyone in on some of the silliness we’ve experienced during our MFT travels, I thought it would be fun to know the back stories, so everyone can jump into the parties with both feet, completely in the loop!

I also hope you’re enjoying the newsletter Teasers and full pics, the feedback so far is GREAT!  Next week we’ll be unrolling a WHOLE NEW What’s Up Wednesday (WUW), filled with fun and good times, so stay tuned!

It's almost time for the Nov Releases!

Here’s a little ditty from Joanne featuring this months Flopsey set, Cupcake Flopsey!  I’ll be posting MFTeasers all week long gearing up for the release this Wednesday night, 9-11pm EST on our SCS Forum!  To get things started, how about our release teaser poem?

Who’s That e-Girl? is sure to release with a bang, 
Paying homage to the stamping community gang.
Yes, she’s just like us, with computer in hand,
Chatting with cyber sisters all over this land.

Flopsey this month is THE cutest for sure,
With a cupcake in hand, it’s appeal will endure.

And speaking of cupcakes, we’ve got those too!
Big enough to embellish, not just one, but two!

Dearest Annie is back with two lovely new sets,
Making this month, as always, as good as it gets!

We are back this month with what I think is our strongest release ever! Just in time for holiday card making, especially those that give gift sets of cards during the holiday season. I don’t think there’s a better gift around!

This Wednesday night, from 9-11pm EST, we will be hosting our November Release party, and we hope you’ll join us!

The First 50 this month will receive a Memento Dew Drop in Rich Cocoa or Tuxedo Black, and I’ll post the last order number right before the sets go live at 10:30PM EST.

This month, we thought we would do something very special for those that attend our release parties and pick up the Collection (all of the sets released that month) within the first 48 hours. So we’ve decided instead of a piddly discount, we’re giving you a FREE set!! 

If you purchase the November Collection within the first 48 hours (you have until Friday night at midnight EST) you receive one FREE set! You can choose from:

Gardener Flopsey
Going Places
Gone to the Dogs
What’s the Story
Rain or Shine

Now that’s a SERIOUS bonus!!! You MUST list your set choice in the comments section, and you only qualify for a free set IF you purchase the November Collection before Friday night at midnight EST.

You can check out the incredible DT Teasers HERE, and get ready to PARTY Wednesday night!
