Feature Friday: At the Movies

We’re already busy preparing for the August Release here at My Favorite Things and we’ll be kicking off our week long Teaser Time in just a few days. In the meantime, of course, I have lots of My Favorite Things stamps and Die-namics already in my collection to put to work.  I like to share creations with some of my “older” stamps and Die-namics with you since whether old or new, they are equally loved.  I must say, I especially like pairing my older stamps with newer paper and Die-namics for a fresh feel.

With my children home from school, I’ve found myself doing a lot more late night stamping,which also means a lot of late night movie watching.  I’ve just caught all the way up on True Blood on HBO.  So, what’s your favorite movie to stamp along to?With all my TV and movie watching of late, I was inspired to pull out the At the Movies with this new patterned paper from Glitz Designs.  I added in my beloved Fishtail Flags STAX along with a cluster of our new MFT Buttons which were threaded with Charcoal Twine.

If you haven’t seen At the Movies yet, it is a huge 6×6 sized stamp set.  You’ll find lots of options to personalize, and lots of graphic elements to stamp. In particular, I love using this for birthday cards for kids – especially if it is a movie themed birthday. What about using for movie theater gift cards?

I’ve used the included Die-namics to create a little embellishment cluster.

You can see a quick product video using the At the Movies Stamp Set and Die-namics HERE or simply click play below.

Speaking of movies, I’m headed out with the kids to watch Brave this afternoon.  A perfect rainy day activity if you ask me.  Have a great day!

Hello, Friend

Hello Friends! Usually I’ve got a video for you on Fridays, but we’ve been busy preparing for our trip to CHA next week.   I wanted to leave you with a little eye candy before the weekend though, so I was happy to create a big old mess on my desk and make a card to share.

I inked up Pure Innocence: Freckles with Brilliance Ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I wanted to play with my new Tim Holtz Markers before I took off for the week.  I’ll get started on a tutorial for working with them for you all, but wanted to play around a bit first.  I really enjoy watercoloring, so this was great fun!

I’ve used the Rounded Banner STAX for my main panel.  The Sentiment Strips are fantastic for small sentiment placement. I diced it in half to use in pieces on this card…..

The Pretty Posies Die-namics is always a favorite of mine. Here I’ve added one of our new Buttons – this one is Sno Cone.

Thanks for stopping by today, and we’ll see you again next week.  Be sure to follow MFT on Facebook for any updates we have from Chicago!

Happy Birthday MFT!

Today marks my official birthday, and YOU are the best gift, ever.  Today MFT also turns 6, as it was my birthday present to myself 6 years ago, today.  Around this time of year I find myself reflective on how MFT has grown and evolved, and while I don’t often get personal on this blog, today is the PERFECT occasion!

Words can not express how much I love this Company.  Not because of the growth we’ve experienced, but because of the relationships we’ve built.  I still get teary-eyed when I think back to our very first catalog (with a whopping 14 stamp sets), the first Rep Show in Boston where I met Alma and Robert (and where, thanks to Robert, my Appletini addiction began).  I vividly remember our first CHA, when Sherrie (because I’m 5’3″ and couldn’t reach) placed our Innovations Display submission into the glass case.  I remember tearing up at that moment and wishing more than anything that my Mom could’ve been there to share such a momentous occasion.  And then Carole, sensing my emotion, came over and wrapped her arms around me.  I have such touching memories, and I am grateful; to the core of my being.

I am blessed by our growth.  For what that growth has meant to my family.  Being able to prosper during such a challenging time is a testament to those who love and support us.  I am even more blessed by the opportunities it has afforded us to bless others.  I would like to take a moment to say thank you to the MFT Staff (many of whom are listed on the right hand side of the blog).

Martin – It takes a confident man to live in a “pink” world, and you do it with such style and grace.  I know it’s not always easy to work together, and I am not always the most agreeable person to work with.  I get *slightly* attached to my position, and I thank you for your persistence and patience.  Not to mention that Tim Holtz has nothing on you… (Sorry, Tim, I really am a fan!)

Brianna – You are my oldest daughter, and a most precious gift.  I am so impressed by how much you’ve grown in your role with MFT, and how incredible you are in every role you play.  When I see the leadership role you take in our staff meetings, I find myself so proud of you that it’s all I can do not to burst into tears.  You are amazing.  Truly and completely amazing.

Jody – Four years ago you walked into my life, and into the life of MFT.  To say you are so dear to me is such an understatement it almost seems ridiculous.  You get the best and the worst of me, and I know without hesitation that I am truly loved and accepted.  As are you, by me.  I don’t know how I got so lucky, but I thank the Heavens every day that the stars aligned (with help from Jen and Carole) to bring me to Arlington that day so we could meet.

Joanne – You SO had me at Hot Tamales!  How on EARTH could I not fall in love with you?  You are so precious to me, and I’m so happy to call you my friend.  I love how you’ve grown with MFT and am thrilled and proud to have recognized such potential in such an adorable little package.  You are a love, and I’m so glad you’re mine.

To our AMAZING Design Team – YOU are inspiration, dedication, loyalty, friendship, creativity, love, and so much more.  Each of you (past and present) have become dear friends, such an integral part of my life and the lifeblood of MFT in a way I never thought possible.  The fun we’ve had at CHA’s and shows have been some of the highlights of my time with MFT. We seriously have FUN! Belly laughing until I feel like I’ve undergone an ab workout, fun. But even those of you I’ve never met, I adore.  You make MFT the family that it is.  And I thank you.

Our Illustrators/Graphic Artist Team – You are all the best and brightest in the business. MFT is able to offer the amazing products it does because of your efforts.  And I hope I let each of you know how important you are, every day.  You take the imaginings and dreams and make them reality.  I have so much respect for each of you, and so much love.

And MOST importantly, I would like to thank YOU; our customers.  It is YOU who have supported us.  YOU who have trusted us with your business.  YOU who have given us the opportunity to correct mistakes. Without each and every one of you, we would not be.  I want you to know how deeply I appreciate you letting us into your lives.  Into your craft rooms, your in-boxes, your world.  We truly have the best customers in the world.  You are honest, forgiving, praising, patient, kind, and loyal.  And each of you blesses me, every day.  My office is filled with cards, gifts, and altered items that you’ve taken time to create especially for me.  You’ve sent flowers during important events.  Send notes of thanks and inspiration.  I am honored by you.  In every way.

I know that this is not exactly a stamping related post, and I appreciate that you’ve taken time to share this very special day with me, and with MFT. Today, my heart is very full. <3

We Are Proud to Be American!

Happy Independence Day!  I hope you are celebrating today with loved ones, and taking a moment to be grateful to be part of such an amazing Country.  I consider myself so blessed to call America my home.

In honor of Independence Day, I thought it made sense to celebrate the fact that our exclusive products are all Made in the USA.  I’m not quite sure I mention that quite as often as I should, but it is something I am very proud of.  The Clear Stamps and Die-namics you love are all produced in the USA.  The card stock you love is also manufactured right here in the US.  You’ve expressed how important it is to you to support Companies with quality products, and we are so excited you feel that way!

Today I’m sharing a little card made by Michele Boyer using Little Firecracker.  She’s just so adorable, and the card is so perfect for today.  Please have a safe and amazing 4th of JULY!

Pure Innocence Teaser Time

Today we’re happy to share the latest stamps in our Pure Innocence Collection.  This will be the final set of new reveals before our July Release.  However, we do hope you’ll join us tomorrow for the Pre-Release Pep Rally and Die-namics Feature.

Here are all the details that you need to know about our new release on July 3rd at 10pm EST.

  • You can attend the New Release Party on July 3 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 July 3 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.

Now that you have all the details, let’s peek at the new stamp sets!!

I also have  a few new Die-namics dies to share with you today.  Up first is the Solid Skyline Die-namics. This coordinates nicely with the original Skyline Border Die-namics.

You can see the Solid Skyline Die-namics up close in today’s Product Video found HERE, or you can simply click the play button just below.

I also have a quick peek at the Squiggle Border Die-namics to share with you today. This is a six inch border die which is just about 2/3 of an inch in height.  This is the same shape as the Squiggle Border Die-namics which we released last month, only on a larger scale.

 You can find a quick product video featuring the Jumbo Squiggle Border HERE or simply click the play button below.

Before you go today, I have one more announcement! Introducing a brand NEW product from MFT: Replenishments Buttons! Custom-dyed to match our 26 colors of our heavy-weight, premium card stock and grosgrain ribbon. ALL 26 colors will be available on July 3 at 10 PM EST.

If you follow MFT Facebook Page then you’ve already seen this cute, fun news!
