MFT February Blog Hop and Shop!

It's here! MFT's February Blog Hop and Shop! If you've been following the teasers, you know there are some awesome sets and Die-namics being released RIGHT NOW!!! If you got here from the amazing Frances' blog, you're right on track, if not, head on over to the MFT blog 'cause that's the beginning and you don't want to miss a thing - trust me :)

I'm showing you the sweet little PI - Primrose, next set in the PI year of flowers line, used for my February calendar page. (If you want to see last month's and the stand that holds it, you can see it here.)

I kept some of the same design elements since I wanted to make sure the different months look like they belong together, KWIM? But I changed up a few things to allow each month to stand alone, too. I stamped the little PI on a Perfect Paper Panel (temporarily out of stock) with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, colored her with Copic markers and paper pieced her sweet little dress. Then I cut her out and popped her up. I used the Jumbo Scallop and Scalloped Scallops Die-namic's dies for the center element and the Rounded Banner Die-namics dies for the month tab. And, of course, I used the 2011 calendar digi file for the calendar. And guess what? You can get the 2012 calendar digi file NOW!! Yep, so you can start right now to make some calendar gifties for next year and not have to wait until the end of the year. I'm going to do that--make my own and every month make an extra with the 2012 calendars and at the end of the year I'll have an awesome gift ready! Um, they won't be getting one of those stands, though, LOL! I''ll be making it to fit into a CD case. Other MFT products I used are Hot Fudge, Grape Jelly, and Jellybean Green card stock.

Here are the Copic markers I used.

MFT February Teaser, Day Five

It's time for the last teaser before the February release! Are you getting excited about tonight? I am--can't wait for the release party and then the hop and YOU get to shop!! Today we're showing you WTG My How You've Grown and Clearly Sentimental About Parenting. I'm going to show you Clearly Sentimental About Parenting, but first, you need to know:
  • The February Guest Designer Contest has ended and the winner will be announced at the release party.
  • Teasers end today. Head on over to Kim's blog to see what the rest of the team has come up with for today's teasers. Every day there will be a prize hidden on two of the Creative Team's blog posts.

  • The February Hop and Shop will begin at 10:00pm TONIGHT, with the hop also starting at Kim's Blog.
And here's my card. I went a little scrappy with this one--the kite made me do it ;-) I love this paper from October Afternoon's Fly a Kite collection. Reminds me of yesteryear.

I used the Perfect Bracket Edge Die-namics die and the new Fly a Kite Die-namics die for the front of this card and stamped the sentiment on the bracket layer. Other MFT products I used are Whip Cream and Black Licorice card stock.

And I used the bracket on the inside, as well as another sentiment from the set. Some twill and some buttons give it a retro kind of feel I think. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! See you tonight at the Release Party and the Hop and Shop!
