It's MFT Release Time!

There are so many fabulous new stamps and dies available now MFT and the design team has a New Product Tour to recap everything. Be sure to start at Kim's blog for a list of all participating designers.

I worked with Clearly Sentimental About Family. It's a set of beautiful sayings that really make you reflect on the importance of family. But I didn't just use the sentiment set, I paired it with Pure Innocence Girl and Baby. Seemed like a natural fit to me!

What I love about Clearly Sentimental About Family is that the word 'family' is a separate word, available in two different fonts, which makes it super easy to highlight by stamping it in a different colour ink.

Here I cut out some cream card stock with the framed greetings die-namic then stamped the sentiment in black and the word 'family' in magenta ink. I layered the sentiment onto a pink oval, and backed that with the new oval decorative doily die-namic, which, in my opinion, is definitely a must-have!! I coloured the PI Girl and Baby with copics and paper pieced her dress with one of the patterns from the Basic Grey Sweet Threads paper pad. You can also see the magenta border tucked under the ribbon...I used the new postage border die-namic to cut it out. 

On the inside I stamped another of the sentiments from Clearly Sentimental About Family. Sigh...this makes me miss my family but thankfully my parents are coming to visit in just 10 days!

Three of the new stamp sets this month are in support of those affected by cancer; Who's That Girl Chooses Hope, à la mode Fight Like a Girl, and Pure Innocence Have Hope. Click here to read a beautiful story of how PI Have Hope was born and then click over to the Hope You Can Cling To thread on Splitcoast.

Do you have a long MFT wish list? Then the Cherry On Top promotion may be just the thing for you. The Cherry On Top is earned when I customer spends $150 before shipping and tax, earning them $15 off their order. Once that amount is hit, a coupon code will pop up on the computer screen, which you can write down and then apply to your order in the shopping cart. If you happen to remove items from your cart, making your order fall below the $150, the coupon code is removed automatically. How sweet is that!


There's blog candy hidden on one of the design team posts so be sure to leave some love as you make your way through the New Product Tour! Click on the Brand Spankin' New tab to see all the new products in one place. Happy shopping!
