Joy!


Now that we've teased and tempted you all week long, it's almost time for you to shop for 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.

We've taken an in-depth look at this month's Die-namics, while re-visiting the amazing sets being released tonight at 10 PM EST RIGHT HERE in the MFT Boutique.

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 wanted to create another Christmas card for my stash, so I've pulled out Clearly Sentimental about Christmas. It doesn't really show in the photo, but the mix and match banners and my sentiment label are sprayed with pearl glimmermist. I've used By the Letters to spell out "joy" and the mistletoe comes from last month's ornament set. 

This card is 5 x 5 inches, so the embossing folder doesn't quite cover the whole thing. I just emboss twice and use a layer to cover the join. 



Inside I've used some off cuts of paper and another sentiment from the set.
Here are the details about the upcoming release on December 6 at 10 PM EST:
  • You can attend the New Release Party on December 6th from 8-10 PM EST HERE in the MFT forum, where you can enjoy fun, games, and PRIZES!
