Coming Soon: MFT Vault + Another Week of Camp Create Starts Now!

Welcome back, campers! The first session of MFT Camp Create for 2019 was a huge success so of course we had to gather you all together for one last session before we head into fall.

We'll be here all week long with videos and challenges to take your crafting to the next level. Earn badges, share your crafts with your fellow campers, and maybe even win an MFT shopping spree!

It's been a few weeks since the first week of camp...ready for a camp refresher? The goal is to participate in our craft sessions each day and earn your Camp Create badges. As a participant in Camp Create, you immediately earn the badge pictured above. Copy this image and share it on your blog, Facebook page, or Instagram feed to let everyone back home know how you spent your summer vacation.

Today’s Craft: Inlaid Made Easy

Die cuts add depth and dimension to your looks but sometimes, the bulk the process creates is undesirable — especially if your card is intended to be mailed. There is a way to work around that conundrum though. Inlaid die cutting allows you to replicate the layered look in a single layer.

Counselor Karolyn is with us today sharing this versatile, bulk-minimizing technique. Her sunny scene is brining us lots of joy this Monday morning!
