You've Been Spotted - March 28, 2017


Each week we see fantastic projects featuring My Favorite Things product, and we're always so thrilled to see what our customers and followers are creating!


Today, we'd like to shine the spotlight on some awesome projects that have caught our attention in another edition of You've Been Spotted


If you see your project featured, feel free to post this image on your blog and link to this post to show the world that you were spotted by My Favorite Things!





Such a soft and serene scene! Rianne's card features a beautiful color palette and fantastic application of white space - what a wonderful use of the Sushi Date elements!




Jungle Friends has a fun assortment of whimsical animals. Anuja's addition of a patterned ear, party hat, and googly eye take it up a notch further resulting in this playful birthday look.




Magical Dragons are more charming than scary - especially when perched within a billowing cloud! The rays and dimension of the cloud flotilla make Monica's look even more endearing.  




I think the lesson today is that googly eyes make everything better. This I'm Owl Yours duo is certainly having a hoot and making a love connection on Sindu's colorful CAS card.




Mari's card features many of the same elements as Rianne's but a completely different color scheme and the addition of one of our panda chef's resulted in a card as unique as the intended recipient. We love that virtually any set in our collection can be customized to fit the style and mood of the crafter.


Which design is your favorite this week? Be sure to leave these talented folks some love. And who knows? You might be spotted sometime soon!

Tips, Tutorials, & Techniques - Shaker Pouches






Shaker cards and tags are so satisfying - especially that wonderful "chicka chicka chicka" sound the sequins, beads, confetti, and glitter make when you give the project a little wiggle. They can be kind of pain to make though - deciding how to create your well, preventing your filler material from sticking to the adhesive, the list goes on. Shaker pouches are a great solution though. We have a number of Die-namics sized to fit the pouches so you can easily achieve lots of fun looks (with more innovative products in the works) so if you haven't tried them yet, now is the perfect time. Click the link to learn how Stephanie created this shaker tag, or watch below. For more tips and tricks, make sure to subscribe to our Youtube channel!





Check out some other ways our team has added some shimmy and shake:

Inspiration Friday - Inspired by Jane Allen


We are more than a little excited to have Jane Allen joining us at the MFT Boutique for a master class in the art of no-line coloring. Jane was one of our 2016 Card Design Superstars and is currently doing a monthly blog feature for us called Artistic Expression with Jane Allen. I think you’ll agree that she has a special talent! We're totally inspired by her coloring skills and thought it would be fun to showcase a few of her MFT creations.
