Documenting the First Day

The first day of school…pretty monumental, right? Laina was able to capture her handsome boys in all of their back-to-school glory in this bright, clean-lined layout with plenty of fun little details. The Border It – Numbers Die-namics is repeated across the top of the layout to reflect the progression of grades while the fun new Lunchbox Die-namics provides the perfect placement for a title. I love seeing how the scale of our stamps and Die-namics translate to scrapbook pages!

Do you have a milestone moment you’ve been meaning to document? Even those small, seemingly ordinary moments can take on great significance when you take a moment to reflect on the deeper meaning. Take some time to capture a fleeting moment – Laina’s provided a sketch to get you going so all you need to do is choose the photos and put pen to paper. What are you waiting for? Make sure to tag #mftstamps on your social media uploads so we can see how MFT products have inspired your creativity – we’ll be on the lookout!

The new Falling Leaves Die-namics are inherently dimensional thanks to the emboss line detailing. Sponge on a variety of rich, autumnal hues though and the lines are further enhanced resulting in highly detailed, amazingly realistic accents for your cards and other crafty projects. This simple design highlights the depth of the leaves and allows you to spend your time on the details because the assembly is so easy!

From Miss Tiina, we bring you the Cute Critters stamp set and Die-namics. This set includes three sweet animals, a trunk to perch them on, a handful of small accent designs, and a variety of punny sentiments. The Die-namics set coordinates with the stamp images to create perfectly-sized die cuts. The addition of a sweet little mask element instantly turned that rascally raccoon into a heart-stealing bandit.

Merci, gracias, arigato…however you say it, that’s how we feel towards you :) We love introducing a new Free with $60 Die-namics each month to show our gratitude and during this season of thankfulness, we thought it only appropriate to introduce the incredibly useful Many Thanks Die-namics. Three dies, two smaller options – one capitalized, and one super-sized, will become invaluable to your card making and crafting.

Three heartfelt sentiments are designed to express appreciation in the most elegant way possible. The die-cut script sentiments in the Words of Gratitude Die-namics can be used alone, or mix and matched with the phrases included in the Thankful Thoughts stamp set for a more multi-dimensional look.

Print

See more of the Words of Gratitude Die-namics HERE or by watching the video below.

A clean and readable sans serif font is the perfect foil to a beautifully loopy script font in the Thankful Thoughts stamp set. Mix and match the phrase and word images to create an infinite array of sentiments or, use in conjunction with the Words of Gratitude Die-namics to create a more dimensional look. A variety of coordinating images including flowers, leaves, and a seasonally appropriate acorn, provide the perfect way to accent the look.

Print

Seven detailed leaf options are included in the Falling Leaves Die-namics combining perfectly to create layered wreathes and leaf piles begging to be disbursed by a single jubilant jump. Individual leaves are the perfect accent for cards, tags, and place settings. Mix and match the leaf options in a variety of richly hued autumn colors for seasonal décor and projects.

Print

The Mini Chicken Wire Background is an open hexagon pattern with a twist: the subtlest bit of squiggle to mimic the look of chicken wire. Add some down-on-the-farm appeal to your projects or simply a bit of texture – this design isn’t limited to barnyard hijinks!
