Rah Rah Rah - it's Pep Rally time!

Now that we've teased and tempted you all week long, it's almost time for you to grab all of your favorite Brand Spankin' New products from MFT.

But first…it's time for our Die-namics Feature and Pre-Release PEP Rally!  

Our Design Team has been busy creating jaw-dropping and inspiring projects for you, and we've saved the best for last.

Here is an in-depth look at this month's Die-namics, with an opportunity to revisit the amazing sets being released tonight at 10pm EST RIGHT HERE.

And while we are at it, how about we make your life even easier with a "cheat sheet" of all that's new?  Head over to the MFT Blog to print out a shopping list. 


I just love this new feature day - it's so fun to focus on the amazing die-namics MFT offers each month! Today I've mixed and matched a few sets and dies and I also have a little video tutorial for you.

My focal image for this card is from Inspired by Autumn, the tag is from Bon Appetit, and inside I've used a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental about Abundance - they all work so well together!

You'll spot a few of our new die-namics on this card, but I wanted to focus on how I made this super simple medallion using the vintage flourish die-namic.

I've created a little video showing a couple of different options for this medallion...

Here's the simple inside:
