Die-namics Feature and Pre-Release Pep Rally

Tonight’s the night! It is nearly time for our February Release, we hope you will join us TONIGHT for the New Release Party on the MFT Forum on Splitcoast Stampers. If you’ve not joined us for a New Release Party, you can find lots of helpful information HERE on our Release Party FAQ.  The party will be found on this thread  and we’ll meet up from 8-10pm EST.  Whether you’re a longtime MFT Fan, or a Release Party Newbie, we’re excited to chat with you tonight!  We’ll also announce the winner of our Guest Designer Contest around 9:15pm. There will be contest questions and prizes too, so you won’t want to miss it.   Hope to see you there!

When can I shop? What’s all this talk about TLC? How come some people are shopping at 9pm?

The new product will be added to the store at 10pm EST.  However, if you’re a TLC Club member, you’ll gain early access to the store at 9pm EST.  If you’re interested in learning more about the TLC Club membership you can find all the details HERE.

Don’t Forget your Rewards!

As you’re checking out, don’t forget about the Triple Scoop and Cherry on Top Rewards. The system will prompt you once you’ve qualified, but you’ll need to add your rewards to your shopping cart.  Simply add the Triple Scoop product to your cart using the “add to cart” button, and it will be shipped with your order. The Triple Set set can be combined with our Cherry on Top promotion as well for even greater savings!  Please note: 

– We are not able to add Triple Scoop sets to your order once it is placed. You will not receive it unless it is added to your cart.

– ONE PER CUSTOMER

– While we try to order an ample quanity of the select Triple Scoop set each month, but on occasion we sell out. In the event of a sell out, we will still send you a free set of our choosing, valued at $15.95. We are not able to take requests for the Triple Scoop substitution.

Our Cherry on Top reward is offered to you absolutely FREE with a qualifying purchase of $150 or greater. The Cherry on Top Reward lists “Notify Me, Out of Stock” because it is not an item that you add to your cart. It is a discount code you enter when placing your order by following these instructions:

Step 1: Your shopping cart must contain $150 or more of the MFT products of your choice.

Step 2: In the shopping cart area, enter code CHERRYONTOP (all caps, one word) in the “Apply Discount Code” field and click “Apply Coupon”.

Step 3: Your order total has now been reduced by $15.00 and you are free to complete the checkout process.

PLEASE NOTE: The Cherry on Top Promotion is available to retail customers only. No refunds will be given if this code is not used.

Help! The item I’m looking for is out of stock!

Within a few days of the release, we will place a re-order with our manufacturers for any items that are out of stock.  However, at times, it may take as many as four weeks for items to return to stock.  The good news is that our new website offers a “Notify Me” feature.   In the event that the product you’re looking for is out of stock, please click the “NOTIFY ME” button and enter your email address.  As we receive replenishment, the system will send you an email.  You won’t have to hunt the product down, or wonder if you’ve missed it.  Easy peasy!

MFT’s February Release Teaser Time – Day Four

 

Welcome to day Four of Teasers for our upcoming release here at My Favorite Things!  If you haven’t joined us, be sure to check back at the last few days of teasers, the designers have done an amazing job thus far, and get this, we still have three more days of Teasers after this!

Our next release will be Tuesday, February 7th at 10pm EST.  You’re cordially invited to join us for our New Release party from 8-10pm EST over on the MFT Forum on Splitcoast Stampers.  Visit with your fellow MFT Fans and the MFT Design Team, play your hand at the contest questions for a chance at a prize and get ready to shop!

Today we’ve got two Die-namics and Stamp Set pairings to share with you, and a really gorgeous set that can be used all on its own, or combined with virtually any of our other products to add added dimension and texture. Ready to get started?

Up first is Ring Me.  Anything retro is back in a big way and I’m completely enamored with this set which allows you to connect to friends in a fun, yet old-fashioned way.  Ring Me will be available both as a Die-namics and stamp pairing or as a stand alone, Die-only version.

Measuring 3.5×2.6 inches, this is an oversized element which will fill the majority of your card front with ease.

 Here’s a peek at the elements in action.

The second set we’re showcasing today is the new Vertical Greetings Stamp Set and Die-namics. This 4×6 sized stamp set includes four beautiful, inspirational sentiments, each of which include an assortment of fonts.   Each of the sentiments will pair with the coordinating Die-namics. Again this Die-namics will be available as a stamp and Die-namics pairing, or as a stand alone die-only product.  

 Our designers have lots of samples to share with you today,

but here’s a quick example of what you can create.

Last, and certainly not least, I’m pleased to share Finishing Flourishes with you.  This set will be perfect to add custom details to your panels as you’ll often see Inge do.  Or you can consider stamping flourishes upon your embellishments for extra detail.  You can even use this set as a fully stand alone set, perhaps stamping your own patterned paper. So many creative possibilities!  Finishing Flourishes includes five beautifully scripted sentiments for card-making. Guest Designer Contest:  Have you had a chance to put in your entry for the My Favorite Things Guest Designer Challenge?  The prize package is valued at over $200 in stamps and Die-namics from the following month’s release, but you’ll ALSO get the chance to play along with our Design Team in daily Teasers for the March Release!  You’ll find all the entry details HERE on the MFT Forum. Teaser Time: Don’t forget that we’re giving away fourteen prizes during Teaser Time, two for each day of Teasers!  You’ll have until Tuesday to leave all your comments, and the prizes will be announced here on the MFT Blog, just before the release party!  Remember to leave either your email within the body of your comment, or attached to your profile, because if we can’t email you, we can’t award you a prize! Please be sure to visit with the following designers who have projects prepared for you today: Julie Jessie Karen M. Eva Barbara Melody Joanne Megan Kerry Debbie Jackie Jodi Michele Sarah Karen G.

January 2012 Design Team Creative Challenge: Masculine

Welcome to the January 2012 Design Team Creative Challenge! Each month, we challenge our Design Team to create projects within a special theme, or using a specific product line.  This month, we’ve asked our designers to create masculine themed projects.  I hear time and time again from stampers, that creating masculine projects are often the most difficult…put your crafty purchases to work and get ready to create fabulous cards, projects and pages for all the guys in your life! Lots of our designers have jumped on board to create cards and projects for the men in our lives!  You’ll find that lots of the girls have shared their particular tips and “rules” for creating smashing cards for the guys!  I hope you’ll find a sample or two that will work for you, and we look forward to seeing YOUR masculine MFT Projects too….
