perfectly matted circles with a .25 inch difference between each Die-namics.

Our Favorite Find: March

Each week, we bring you five customer projects to share with you as part of Our Favorite Finds.  Then, at the end of the month, we select just one of these outstanding designs to highlight as our Favorite Find of the month.

This month, we selected Wendy Bond with  this adorable Pure Innocence: Four Leaf Clover.  Check out her fabulous hair coloring and of course, those freckles! This sweet card is completely adorable!

Be sure to stop on by to congratulate Wendy on being selected as this month’s Favorite Find. Wendy will win a little extra shopping money, which is certainly handy with a new release just a few days away!  See you tonight with another round of MFT Teasers!

Feature Friday: Border Die-namics

The other day, while I was cleaning and re-organizing my stamping area, I was stunned by how many border Die-namics we have now in the MFT Die-namics collection.  And, I realized that there are probably many of you who might not have been with us since the beginning of our Die-namics journey.  With that in mind, I’ve put together a quick Feature Friday Video for you today featuring the various Border Die-namics shapes as well as a finished sample for each.

We’ve got scallops (and plenty of them!), themed border Die-namics like the Mini Film Strip and the Paper Doll Die-namics and our more intricate, elegant Border Die-namics like the Faux Crochet Border and the Dainty Lace Border which coordinate with our popular line of Die-namics Doily dies.  Our border Die-namics come not only in a variety of shapes, but also in a variety of sizes to suit the scale of whatever image, paper or finished project size you’re working with.

I hope you enjoy this week’s Feature Friday Video, and who knows, maybe you’ll find a new Border Die-namics that you’d like to add to your collection!

Teaser Time Day Three – MFT’s Triple Scoop

Welcome to day three of Teasers for our April release. Today we’re looking at our Triple Scoop Reward stamp set. If you’re not familiar with the Triple Scoop Reward, it is a free, full sized stamp set, available to customers purchasing $60 or more in a single order (excluding shipping and taxes.)

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.

So how about we take a peek at this month’s reward set: Clearly Sentimental About Anniversaries? This 4×6 sized stamp set includes seven sentiments, some sweet, and one that’s just a little bit sassy.  Use to celebrate your own anniversary, or to create anniversary cards to commemorate the day for friends or family.

Last month’s Triple Scoop: Big Greetings will be available beginning Tuesday at 10pm EST as an individual purchase if you didn’t already earn it for free during March. This 4×6 sized stamp set includes ten sentiments in a bold font.  Be sure to add this versatile stamp set to your shopping cart this month.  It’s truly a must have for your “collection.” 

Die-namics Preview:

Each day during Teasers we take a close look at one of the soon to be released Die-namics dies.  Today I’m excited to share the Jumbo Banner Day STAX Die-namics. This is a seven piece Die-namics set, which will provide you with assorted sizes of banner elements, the largest of which is 5 x 3.75 inches.  As the STAX gradually reduces in size across the seven pieces, you’ll have coordinating banner and matting elements whether you’re working on scrapbook pages, cards or home decor.

Guest Designer Contest: Our Guest Designer Contest is in full swing. You won’t want to miss the chance to join the MFT Design Team for the month of April – participating in the weekly Wednesday Stamp Club sketches, as well as Teaser Time for the May release.  The winner also receives a prize package valued at over $200!  You’ll find all the details on this post.

Teaser Time Prizes:  

Remember that we’re giving away 14 Teaser Time Prizes – two for each day of previews. Maximize your chances at winning a Teaser Time Prize by leaving a little love on each of the participating designers previews every day.

Feature Friday: Pure Innocence Facial Detail

In today’s Feature Friday Video I’m focusing on an often asked question, how to color Pure Innocence with Copic Markers.

You’ll see how I like to color a sweet Pure Innocence face, including those adorable rosy cheeks. First, I’ll show you how to color from light to dark, and then I’ll repeat the process, this time showing how to color starting with your darkest shades first. I’ve also included some recommended Copic colors so you can follow along step by step. For today’s demonstration, I’m using Pure Innocence: Cute-a-tude, and the Blending Card by X-Press It.  I hope this is helpful to all of you, and thanks so much for stopping by.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I hope you’re all excited and ready for this evening’s New Product Tour featuring the Pure Innocence Amazing & Magical VIP Collection!   Our designers have the new VIP Collection in their hot little hands and they’re so excited to share samples with you tonight.  This kit features TWO new Pure Innocence stamp sets, as well as TWO new Die-namics dies and an EXCLUSIVE stamp set which will only be available as part of the VIP Collection.

Please remember that the VIP Collection is a limited quantity product, and once they’re gone they will not be re-stocked.  The two Pure Innocence sets and the two Die-namics dies will be available again as part of our April release, however the exclusive stamp set will never be available again.  In recent months the VIP Collections have gone quickly, so if you see something you like, I’d recommend not waiting to head on over to the MFT Boutique and grab yours.

This month’s VIP Collection is priced at $32.90 and includes:

  • Pure Innocence Magician stamp set
  • Pure Innocence Scientist stamp set
  • Amazing & Magical Sentiments mini (VIP exclusive stamp set – will never be offered for sale or be available again $9 value, FREE)

A Tour of Our Retail Boutique

Many of you have wanted a private tour of our new retail Boutique in Eustis, FL, so I made a little video to show you all around!  There was quite a bit of traffic while we were filming the outside portion of the video, so I apologize for the extraneous noise.  I do hope you’ll enjoy a little peak inside, and hope you’ll visit the next time you’re nearby.

 

You can also view this video in larger format on our YouTube channel.

I also wanted to give you a birds-eye view of our warehouse area, where all of your orders are prepared and shipped. It’s not quite as *pretty* as the front of the store, but it is highly functional, and the Team works very hard to make sure everything is processed quickly and correctly. I hope you’ll enjoy meeting the Team behind My Favorite Things in a new and exciting way!

Feature Friday: Inspired by Butterflies

It’s mid-March and Spring is in the air! We’re enjoying warmer temperatures, longer days and flowers beginning to bloom.  I thought it was time to focus on the new Inspired by Butterflies Die-namics.  This is a recently released Die-namics set which coordinates with our previously released stamp set Inspired by Butterflies.

The original stamp set includes three butterfly images, as well as four sentiments.  The new Die-namics die set will closely cut out each of the three butterfly images. Barbara has a tutorial here showing how you can perfectly stamp and die-cut an image using MFT’s Die-namics.

I’ve pulled the set graphics and the Die-namics preview into a quick video.  You’ll also see samples from our designers using three separate techniques.  You can find lots of additional product videos and tutorials on the MFT YouTube Channel.

Sarah has stamped the image, die-cut it with the matching Die-namics and then colored with Copic markers.  I love the white gel pen treatment she’s used on the outer border.

How about another great look with this pairing?

Barbara has stamped the image onto patterned paper
and used the Die-namics die to cut it out….

Joanne uses only the Die-namics to create this scrappy card,
and finishes off the inside with the coordinating stamp set.

We hope you’ve enjoyed a quick peek at the versatile
Inspired by Butterflies stamp set and Die-namics.

Have a wonderful weekend and we’ll see you all again next week!

Shipping Update

I’ve had several customers email me regarding the length of time it’s taking to receive their orders from our release last Tuesday night.  I know that while only a few of you have taken time to contact me there are many of you who may be sharing the same concerns, so I wanted to take a moment to update all of you.

As I mentioned in this post, consistent issues necessitated us moving away from First Class USPS mail, so this release was primarily shipped via FedEx Smart Post.  FedEx Smart Post offers the FedEx real-time tracking, with the last leg of delivery provided by the USPS.  In theory, it offered the best of both worlds; reliable tracking and affordable cost.  In practice it has offered both of those, but has offered a third attribute as well; delayed shipping times.  Many orders that would’ve been received by now via USPS are still in transit.  And while we know that not every customer has been affected, it is our priority to treat each customer as if they are the most important person we will ever serve, and this delayed delivery time is not acceptable.

Going forward, we will not ship orders via FedEx Smart Post.  Instead we will ship USPS Priority Mail (insured) and FedEx Home Delivery.  Both of these methods will offer the transit times you are accustomed to, while still affording the reliability and accountability we need.

I have also received several emails regarding our flat postage rate of $6.50 for US orders, so want to address that as well.  While I understand that it seems expensive when ordering an item or two, I want to go over the thought process behind this charge so you will better understand how we have arrived at this figure.  USPS currently charges $4.90 for a flat rate envelope via Priority Mail, and with our new shipping policy, we are insuring each order that is shipped via USPS, which is a minimum of $.80 per shipment.  The insurance cost goes up in tandem with the amount of products purchased, but again, the minimum charge is $.80 for the insurance Company we use.

We are one of the few Companies that does not increase shipping cost for orders containing card stock even though we must pay additionally to ship these items.  Not only do we incur the cost of each box (which can range from $.40 up), we ship these orders via FedEx Home Delivery which varies between $8 and $12 per order.  Which is also right in line with the Priority Flat Rate Box price through the USPS of $10.85, plus the additional insurance cost.

Rest assured, we are fully committed to offering you the very best in customer service and expedited order processing.  We have also been extremely disappointed in the transit times with FedEx Smart Post.  Brianna made an astute comment today in our staff meeting, stating how very frustrated she was in working so hard to ensure that every release order was shipped within hours (she was at the office at 6am Wednesday morning) only to have it take a week for orders to arrive once they had been shipped.  Please know that while it is not acceptable to you, it is also not acceptable to us.

Please know that this post is not in lieu of a personal email response by me.  It is simply to communicate with all of our valued customers MFT family. :-)

YOU are the most important customer at MFT, and we will continue to serve you the very best way possible!

Design Team Creative Challenge: Teacher Appreciation

Welcome to the My Favorite Things Design Team Creative Challenge for March.  Each month, we challenge our designers to work within a specific theme, with a particular product line, or using a special technique.  This month, we asked the girls to think about Teacher Appreciation Day which is celebrated in the United States during the first week of May.

In case you have several teacher gifts to create, we thought you might appreciate the extra time to plan ahead and get ready.  I’m sure our designers will have several great project ideas to inspire you today!  Be sure to head out to visit with each of the participating designers who have a Teacher themed project for you today. Enjoy!

Welcoming our March Guest Designer!

Each month, we hold a Guest Designer Contest as part of the New Release Preparations.  The winner receives over $200 in merchandise from the following month’s product release.  The real fun begins though when the winner joins us for our weekly Wednesday Stamp Club challenge and Teaser Time for our upcoming release!

This month’s challenge was to Hit the Books! In reviewing the many beautiful entries this month, one particular entry really stood out. It was not only book themed, the creator designed and completed an entire mini book.  Many products from My Favorite Things were combined into one cohesive project. I’m sure you’ll agree… this entry was lovingly created with spectacular detail!

This month we are welcoming back a repeat winner, Angel Rivera! Please stop by Angel’s blog to see all all of her interior pages of her Happy Anniversary Brown Bag Book and to congratulate her on her big win!  Angel will be joining us beginning with this week’s Wednesday Stamp Club.   Congratulations Angel!

Welcome to the sixth day of Teasers for our upcoming release.  Today we’ll be sharing six new stamp sets, as well as two new Die-namics dies.  We hope you’ll join us again tomorrow for our Die-namics Pep Rally and Pre-Release Feature and then our new release tomorrow night. Here are all the details you NEED to know!

Here are the details about the upcoming release on March 6th at 10 PM EST:

  • You can attend the New Release Party on March 6th from 8-10 PM EST HERE in the MFT forum, where you can enjoy fun, games, and PRIZES!
  • The MFT release, including all new stamp sets and Die-namics, is on March 6th at 10 PM EST. You’ll find all the newest products HERE at release time.
  • The guest designer contest is ON! Check out the forum for details on how YOU can win $200 in stamp sets and Die-namics, and play along with the MFT Design Team for a month.

If you’d like to see all the teasers for today, I have a list of today’s participating designers on the bottom of this post. Be sure to leave comments as you go for the chance to win one of 2, $10 gift certificates given away daily. The winners will be posted on March 6th just before the release party, on the MFT blog.

Our first two stamp sets were very briefly available as part of this month’s VIP Kit, but they’ll be available again tomorrow night as individual elements.

Just perfect for all those sassy girls in your life, take a peek at Cute-a-tude!

Be prepared to fall in puppy love with this month’s Pure Innocence: Puppy Girl

and Pure Innocence: Indian Girl will also be released Tuesday night as well.

The stamp set includes six coordinating greetings.

Precious Little Lamb joins the lineup again this month, this time with a
companion in Better Together.


Die-namics Preview: 

Let’s take a look at our last two Die-namics for this month.  The Royal Rose Die-namics is the latest addition to our Rolled Flower Family.  During last month’s release, many of you were interested in a comparison of our various Flower Die-namics.  You can find our Die-namics Comparison Video HERE on our YouTube Channel.

The Royal Rose Die-namics features realistic ruffled edges on each of the petals and is simply gorgeous! I’m sure you’ve seen lots of this Die-namics during this week’s previews.

The Die-namics Country Charms were available as part of this month’s VIP Kit, which sold out quickly!  They’ll be available again as part of this month’s release.  This Die-namics is a four pack of charms which are an inch in height. They’ll create adorable custom embellishments for your projects.

I’m also excited to share the Large Leafy Flourish Die-namics with you. This is a larger version of our original Leafy Flourish, which is amazing for jumbo sized embellishments, larger clusters of flowers.

I hope you’ve enjoyed all of this week’s previews, and we’re really excited to visit with you at tomorrow night’s New Release Party from 8-10pm EST on Tuesday over on the MFT Forum.  We’ll see you here on the MFT Blog tomorrow for our Die-namics Feature and Pre-Release Pep Rally.

It’s Teaser Time!

It’s time to head on off to see what our designers have put together for you today.  Be sure to visit with:

Today we’re sharing samples with our two newest á la modes stamp sets. Up first is The Rainbow Will Come.  You’ll love this 3×4 stamp set featuring a beautiful á la modes with her oversized umbrella.

Our second stamp set this month is It’s Getting Deep.  Be sure to dish the dirt with your girlfriends in this 3×4 stamp set including four coordinating sentiments.

Die-namics Previews:

As part of today’s Die-namics previews I’m sharing the new Oval Open Scallop Die-namics. This duo is the next in our series of doily Die-namics.  It also coordinates nicely with our soon to be released Oval STAX Die-namics.

In this graphic you can see how neatly they stack together….

They also are sized to perfectly stack against the original Oval Open Scallop Doily Die-namics.

Remember that we’re giving away 14 Teaser Time Prizes – two for each day of previews.

Teaser Time Day Four

Welcome to day Four of Teasers! I hope you’ve been enjoying the previews thus far, we’re only halfway through so there’s LOTS more goodness to see! Our newest stamps and Die-namics will be available Tuesday March 6th at 10pm EST. We hope you’ll join us just before that for our New Release Party on the MFT Forum on Splitcoaststampers.

Have you had a chance to work on your sample for this month’s Guest Designer Challenge?  This month’s theme is Hit the Books and you can find all the entry details HERE.  With a prize package valued at over $200 in merchandise you won’t want to miss the deadline!

Today our designers are sharing samples with two new Die-namics and stamp duos.  The first is Behind the Camera Die-namics and Stamp Set. This is a giant 4×8 stamp set designed to help you capture every single moment.  Our designers have cards and scrapbook pages designed for you today and I just can’t wait to share what they’ve been up to!

The three piece Die-namics set will also be available as a Die-only version…..

Our designers have also been busy behind the scene using the Umbrella Die-namics and Stamp Set. Whether you’re busy making spring projects, baby or wedding shower invitations, cards or favors or simply cheering a friend who’s under the weather, this fun and cheery umbrella combined with a variety of matching sentiments will be just what you need.  Get ready for all the cheery samples created by our designers today!

The companion Die-namics set is available bundled with the stamp set, or sold individually.  The Die-namics will cut the body of the umbrella as well as the individual panels of the umbrella and an umbrella handle.

Die-namics Preview:

I’m really excited about the new Die-namics Photo Corners.  I’ve seen these in use a lot by our designers this week.  The set includes six photo corners, some decorative, some standard perfect for mixing and matching across your cards and pages.

Teaser Time Prizes: Don’t forget that we’re offering Teaser Time Prizes, 14 of them to be precise. You’ll maximize your chances at winning one by leaving a little love on each of the participating designers posts each day of previews.  I’ll have a link to each of them every day here on the MFT Blog.
