New Product Tour August!


Welcome! I have a bunch of projects to show you today, in differing styles....but first....all those GORGEOUS new products you've been drooling over are available HERE now!!!


As you visit each designer today, be sure to leave comments for your chance to win a $50 gift certificate to MFT!

Today I'm going to be sharing projects using the awesome new Triple Scoop set - Clearly Sentimental about Grandparents. This set could be yours FREE when you spend $60 in the MFT store!

I was so pleased to see this set. Both my parents and parents in law became grandparents for the first time when our Jackson was born, so I know I'll be using this one a lot!


First up is a girly set, perfect for any Grandma!


I created this card using papers from the Miss Nelly pack by Kaisercraft. I've used some of my favourite new Die-namics, the gorgeous Layered Rose and one of the Triple Scallop Borders.


To make the flower extra fluffy, I rolled the flowers in my hands to break up the fibers in the cardstock, then carefully seperated each petal. Start with a nice thick cardstock when you do this and go slow! I love that the Layered Rose cuts so many pieces all at once!


Inside my card I used the Triple Scallop Border again, and used the Sweet Stack Labels for my sentiment.


For the bookmark, I used the Bookmark Duo Die-namics and added my sentiment on a Fishtail Flag STAX. I topped my bookmark with another fluffy rose!

For my next card, I wanted to use Clearly Sentimental about Grandparents to make a card fit for any grandfather!


I created a border with the Hexagon Die-namics. I've used the Fishtail Flags again (I love these dies!) for my sentiment.


I anchored the flag with another Hexagon, and embellished with a button and a hammer from the Tool Charms Die-namics. I cut it twice and layered the pieces together for a multi-coloured hammer.


Inside I've used the new Double Dot Border - love this for guy cards!


I also added a screwdriver from the Tool Charms set.


For my last card today, I couldn't resist inking up the new Mouse in the House It's Your Birthday set.


The papers on this card are also Kaisercraft. I used the new Lead the Way Die-namics to stamp my sentiment on. I've stamped the image on a Rounded Banner STAX layer.


Isn't she just the sweetest? My colouring still needs a LOT of work, but I had fun colouring this in!


Inside this card I've used the Double Dot Border and Sweet Stack Labels again. I love using Die-namics to cover up the raw edges of patterened paper, it gives such a finished look to your project!

Whew  - that's it from me today! Be sure to visit all the MFT designers and leave comments for your chance at that $50!

Here are all the wonderful MFT products I've used today - all available now!
