MFT Hop…Changing the way you gift

Welcome to this month’s mid-release hop with My Favorite Things!   If you’re just popping in here, please head over to Kim‘s blog (the very beginning) so you don’t miss anything.

Tomorrow, May 20, MFT is releasing two new mini sets, Time for the Bubbly label and Teacher label.  Other products being released include jars sized to fit the label stamp sets (sold in packs of four, 16 oz. each), Stephanie Fizer Papers – School Collection digi paper pack, Eclipse Masking Sheet packs and Adornments Shimmer brads (8-10 each pink, 8-10 cream, and 16-20 white).

Each of the design team members have filled a jar with their own “something special.”  I turned mine into a little calendar for a special teacher.

To My Favorite Teacher


MFTTLI stamped the label twice (onto patterned paper and cardstock) then placed two magnetic strips between the layers.  The months and dates were printed from my computer onto cardstock, punched out, matted and adhered to inchies.  On the back of each square is a strip of magnetic “tape.” 

MFTFTCHere’s a closer pic of the card.  (The apple and books die-cuts are on the lid of the jar as well.)  The apple is raised on a pop dot and I bent up the edges of the “note” just a bit for added interest.
