Feature Friday

A few weeks ago, as part of Feature Friday I shared a video on How to Tie a Loopy Bow.  I promised that I’d also share a quick and easy bow with similar results, called a Cheater’s Bow.  To tie a Cheater’s Bow you’ll use two lengths of ribbon.  One just a bit longer than your card front which you tape in place, and then you’ll tie a longer piece of ribbon around that to create the bow.  You’ll see just what I mean in today’s Feature Friday Video.  I’ll admit, this is how I first learned to tie a bow when I first got into stamping…


And, I’ve done a second video for you today too.  I often get questions from readers about the sizes of my cards, and it reminds me that while we have many customers that have been with us a long time, there are also new people taking up this amazing hobby each day.  So, I’m going to work on a series of Feature Friday Basics videos.  As always, if there are any topics you need help with, please let us know how to help with a comment on the blog, or a comment on the MFT Facebook Page, we’re here to help!

Today’s second video is going to share information about making a card base. This was a tricky one for me when I first started, I couldn’t visualize where to make the cuts and had a lot of waste.  I also didn’t know what products were going to work the best for me…  so here’s a quick video for any newbies out there!  Welcome! We’re glad to have you!

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….

You’ll find masculine project ideas today from:

Frances

Barbara

Julie

Jackie

Lisa

Kerry

Debbie

Welcoming our January Guest Designer!

Did you know that we hold a Guest Designer Challenge as part of our New Release Preparations each month?  The winner of the challenge receives $200 in stamps and Die-namics from the following month’s release! The winner also joins us for each of our Wednesday Stamp Club sketches, and then jumps in with our designers during Teaser Time for the next release too!

This month, we’re pleased to welcome back Angel Rivera!  Angel’s created a gorgeous card, paper pieced full inside and out for our last challenge. If you look closely, you’ll see that she’s even paper pieced the sprinkles on the cupcake! WOW!  Angel’s won this contest twice before, and we’re excited to have her playing along with us again this month! Be sure to check Angel’s blog for detail shots of this winning project and give her a warm welcome!

Thank you to all of you who participated in this month’s challenge!  We do hope that you’ll join us again for our next Guest Designer Challenge to be announced on Wednesday, February 1st!
