{MFT Teasers} New Release Pep Rally


 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 made a Christmas banner for my china cabinet. Thankfully, I planned ahead and left the garland up for just such an occasion (wink wink).....Good thing I'm organized like that! lol


Thankfully, I have a VERY sturdy kitchen table that I stood on to take this picture....I had my 6 yr old helping me hang it, and nearly fell off the hutch when I was standing on it (it's 9 ft tall!). He thought maybe it was best after all that I didn't let him get up there like he wanted;)


Here are some closer shots, with the first part of the banner 'MERRY' and two of the three poinsettia's. I used the Jumbo Banner Day Stax die-namic to make the banner sections. I cut the MERRY CHRISTMAS with the new High Rise Alphabet Uppercase dienamics.
I actually made the poinsettias using the Fall Leaves Die-namics. The red petals were made with the largest of the leaves, and the green leaves were made with the small, roundish leaf. I used 2 of the Sunflower dies for the flower centre and added a black button tied with a jute string bow. I cut 6 red leaves, layering them until they resembled poinsettias and then glued 5 green leaves to the back. The gold CS centres were adhered using 3D glue dots.



The banners have black eyelets  and a double length of black jute (the Ribbon Carousel) was threaded through with loops on the end for easy hanging.

What a great banner! Yep, you definitely planned it just right by keeping the garland available. It's funny how kids can learn, sometimes even from others. ;)
