MFT Preview 1 — Happy Birthday to You!

It’s time to begin previews of My Favorite Things‘ August release!  We’re especially excited today as one of our preview sets is Lisa Johnson’s first release with MFT, Circus Spectacular! What makes it even more exciting is that it’s a stamp/Die-namics duo!  Sooo many possibilities!  Also previewing today is our newest Who’s That Girl set, WTG Get’s Down to Business.

Today I decided to play with Lisa’s Circus Spectacular set and dies.  I also used our new Ticket Strip Die-namics, Mini Pennants and Simply Scallops Medium Border.  Base is MFT’s Black Licorice heavyweight cardstock.

Here’s a close-up of the vintage circus tent with the birthday sentiment stamped inside.

I stamped two tickets, popping the top ticket on foam tape.

On the inside, I stamped a die-cut elephant and added a row of stars.

Here are the details about the upcoming release:

  • You can attend the New Release Party on August 7th from 8-10 PM EST here in the MFT forum where you can enjoy fun, games and PRIZES!
  • The MFT release, including all new stamp sets and Die-namics, will take place August 7th at 10 p.m. EST. You’ll find all the newest products here at release time.
