MFT January New Product Tour

Welcome to the My Favorite Things January New Product Tour!  You can find direct links to all posts on Kim’s blog HERE Remember to leave comments as you peek!  Blog candy has been hidden somewhere along the way!

Today I’ve used one of our new à la modes sets, Genie.

I added a bright pink flourish coming from the lantern and colored over her pants and ponytail band with a clear Spica glitter pen (because all genies should be surrounded by sparkles.)  :)

I finished the inside simply, leaving plenty of room for a personal note.

All of our new products are available right now, right HERE in the MFT Boutique.  Please refer back to Kim’s blog for direct links to more samples using this month’s releases.

Thanks SO much for stopping by!  Have a great evening!

Nothing is Sweeter Than You

Hi everyone!  It’s the last day of January previews with My Favorite Things!  Tonight at 10 p.m. EST all the new stamps and dies you’ve seen previewed over the last week will be available to YOU!

Today the team is sharing samples using the new release sets along with new Die-namics.  You can find a list of participating DT here.  Be sure to leave comments as you look for your chance to win one of two daily gift vouchers! :)

Today I’ve used another of the new Pure Innocence releases, Berry Sweet, along with MFT’s new Berry Box (as well as several other Die-namics).

I colored with Copics, stamped the dress “seeds” in Rich Cocoa ink, added bits of stitching here and there, inserted mini brads in between each scallop (die-cut using Simply Scallops Die-namics-my all-time favorite “go-to” border) and created three little strawberry boxes.


After coloring with Copics, I added shine and a bit of dimension to the collar, barrette and seeds using a clear Sakura 3-d glaze pen.

On the inside, I used Well Worn Greetings Dies as well as another strip of Simply Scallops.

On the gift bag, I used a couple of Mix & Match Banners (because I love how Joanne does that) and on top, I placed a punched strawberry (from the patterned paper) atop a circle punched from tablet backing.

You can attend the New Release Party tonight, January 3rd, from 8-10 PM EST here in the MFT forum where you can enjoy fun, games, prizes and the announcement of our next Guest Designer!

The MFT release, including all new stamp sets and Die-namics, will take place tonight at 10 p.m. EST. You’ll find all the newest products here at release time.

I’ll be back tonight for our January New Product Tour.  Thanks for stopping by!  :)
