Meet the Designers: Jody & Barbara

Over the past couple of months, we’ve been introducing you to all of the people that work behind the scenes to make My Favorite Things your favorite things. Today, we’re kicking off a monthly feature showcasing a couple of our incredible creative team members. Our team hails from around the globe and we couldn’t do what we do without their talents.

Today, let’s catch up with Jody Morrow and Barbara Anders.


Creative Team member since: July 2008

What location do you call home? I reside in sunny Eustis, Florida, a mere 15 minutes from the My Favorite Things Boutique. My family and I moved here 5 years ago to become fully immersed in the land of pink and black. We live an hour from the beach and 45 minutes from Orlando — a day trip can feel like a vacation sometimes.

What is your favorite current MFT product? My current favorite product is Blueprints 13. I just love that 5.25 X 4” stitched rectangle panel! It’s so versatile and the die comes with so many other cool components.

What is your all-time favorite MFT product? My all-time favorite product has to be the rectangle frames — any of them. Stitched, single line, plain, and any other variety. The frames add *just* the right thing to so many cards and transforms them into masterpieces. I mean… they’re worthy of being framed. Get it? LOL

What are your hobbies when you’re not creating MFT masterpieces? When I’m not creating, I enjoy spending time with husband and three kids. We like watching sporting events (Go Cowboys! Go Stars!), playing games (we are super competitive), and watching movies. My guilty pleasure is reality television, which is the perfect time to cuddle my three Shih Tzus.

Please share a favorite MFT project you’ve created:

Super retro-flashback favorite from January 2010:

Handmade card from Jody Morrow featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

And a current favorite!


Creative Team member since: June 2009

What location do you call home? I live in South-Central Virginia, close to the North Carolina line.

What is your favorite current MFT product? My current favorite product from MFT would have to be the wonderful collection of word dies. They fit so many occasions, can be used equally effectively on CAS cards as well as more intricate designs. They can be made in so many ways: plain card stock, patterned paper, glitter paper, colored with markers, and sponged. Also single layer, inlaid, or raised up on foam or layered for dimension; you’re only limited by your imagination! Such a versatile product!

What is your all-time favorite MFT product? Since I love to create a scene, all of the dimensional and scene Die-namics would have to be my all-time favorite products. They are timeless and again, so versatile in their design possibilities. Whether you use every piece or one element from a set, they can stretch your other products and your creativity to their full potential.

What are your hobbies when you’re not creating MFT masterpieces? In my “spare” time, I love to travel, spend time with friends, read, I’m a news junkie, and I’m always open to inspiration from the world around me.

Please share a favorite MFT project you’ve created:

Halloween Techniques That Will Get Your Creativity Spinning

Today, we’re so pleased to welcome Justine Hovey back for one last August guest post.

Hi Crafters,

It’s Justine again for my last post as a guest designer for My Favorite Things. Being a part of the MFT fun this month has been an amazing experience! Today I decided to play around with some Halloween stamps. Halloween has some of my favourite color combinations and it is an excuse to get nice and inky! One thing I have been obsessed with lately is Distress Oxide inks. For this card, a little pre-planning is necessary. If you are interested in a video tutorial for these two cards, check it out here.

Handmade card from Justine Hovey featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

Determine how many colours you want to use. With a pencil mark the centre point and quickly sketch the spiral so that each color comes up the same amount of times (I’m a teacher and I know fractions aren’t everyone’s favourite thing). I didn’t do any measuring for this, I just did it. If some areas end up bigger or smaller, it’s no problem. The important thing is that you don’t end up with two of the same colour side-by-side at the very end. I used Twisted Citron, Spiced Marmalade, and Wilted Violet. I masked off each area with Post-It Tape so I could do one area at a time with straight lines. When I was finished I sprayed some water to create the oxidized effect.

Handmade card from Justine Hovey featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

For the final touch, I coloured some of the Halloween Characters from the Happy Haunting stamp set using Copic Markers. I attached them to a circle that I die cut and added the happy haunting sentiment. You can attach this to the centre of the card. I ended up cutting out the centre of the card using the circle die and adding the white one in the middle so I could have less layers.

Handmade card from Justine Hovey featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

This card is a little bit more clean and simple but uses the same circle die set. I began by cutting the circle out of the middle of my card panel. I got stitching on the inside and outside of the circle which adds an awesome extra touch. I stamped the ghostly greetings sentiment from the Fab-BOO-lous Friends set in the middle.

Handmade card from Justine Hovey featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

I then stamped all the characters onto a piece of card stock and Copic coloured them. I die cut them using the coordinating dies and arranged them in a circle around the frame. I glued the frame onto the card base and added the sentiment using foam tape. I love these small images because there isn’t a lot of room for error or complicated Copic blending.

Handmade card from Justine Hovey featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

I hope that you like these two different ideas for Halloween cards. All of the images from the August release are just adorable! I can’t wait to create some more to give to some of the special kids in the neighbourhood!
