Hello and welcome to
MFT’s October Release Countdown Kickoff! Release is 5 days away, on October 8th so mark your calendars! It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and you’re not going to want to miss any of these festive products. Today we’re previewing Christmas sELFies Stamp Set, Captions Alphabet Die-namics, Captions Numbers Die-namics (Free with $60), Merry Christmas Blend Stamp Set, Merry Christmas Blend Die-namics, Ho Ho Ho Background Stamp, Gift Card Pocket Die-namics, Christmas Crew - Boy Elf Die-namics, Christmas Crew - Girl Elf Die-namics, Christmas Crew - Santa Elf Die-namics, Christmas Crew - Snowman Elf Die-namics, Christmas Crew - Reindeer Elf Die-namics. Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details.

I’m using BB Christmas sELFies Stamp Set and Christmas Crew – Boy Elf from the upcoming release along with some previously released products to create a shutter card.

The boy elf—so much fun to create--decorated the belly band and I used Ho Ho Ho Background for the front. The shutter mechanism and colored image, along with the sentiment are in the inside. I have a little video showing how it works.

And that’s it from me today. Thanks SO much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Four!
