Happy Hump Day, everyone! I can't believe the month is almost over, too -- can you? Before you know it, the Day of Love will be here and I needed another Valentine card, so My Favorite Things' Wednesday Sketch Challenge made this one quick and easy to create: You can play along with this week's challenge, too, for the possibility of winning a fantastic prize! You can find all the details of the challenge here.... Continue reading

Card makers are a pretty sentimental bunch overall and that is a great thing. We spend our time showing family and friends (and sometimes strangers!) that we care deeply for them. This month, the My Favorite Things design team embraces this season of love full-force by creating projects that feature love in the most literally way: with lots of hearts! Any color, any material – hearts will stand strong as a dominant design element that... Continue reading

My last project showed you how to make an interesting homemade background paper with a background stamp and an emboss resist technique using the Copic Airbrush System (you can find that project HERE). Had I thought about doing a series... Continue reading

Keep clicking to see how the MFT team manages their stockpile of this stamping essential. The ink pad and refill storage system I lovingly... Continue reading

From beautiful, brand new sheets, to pre-cut card bases, to the tiniest of scraps, a rainbow of card stock is a happy visual reminder of our love for all things paper. Today's My Favorite Things Design Team organizational challenge is Cardstock! I store my most-used cardstock within easy reach of my desk (on top of the desk hutch which is behind my stamping area), in white IKEA Kassett Magazine Files, by color families. These come...

Managing your collection of Die-namics can be daunting if you don’t have a system in place -- especially when the sets include multiple, often small, pieces. Today the My Favorite Things Design team is sharing their solutions for keeping their Die-namics collection in check! The storage bin I used for my dies is the same one I used for my clear stamps (<=Link to Stamp Storage post), the InterDesign Double Fridge Binz: The dividers I... Continue reading

Hi, MA Evans -- They are the same dividers I used in yesterday's stamp storage post. I've edited my post above now to include this: The dividers I used here are the same kind I use for my stamp bin. They are white plastic and came from another type of stamp storage system I purchased several years ago. Unfortunately, they are no longer being made and I haven't been able to find them even on the secondary market or close-out stores. :( Alternately, you could cut down plastic report covers/pocket folders from any office supply store -- that's what I plan on doing when I need more!

Thin, versatile, durable -- Stencils are all of that and more! If you haven’t amassed a collection of stencils yet, we’re confident that once you give them a try, you’ll become quickly addicted! Whether you use them as a mask for applying color or a texture medium, or run them through your die-cutting machine to add subtle texture (using the Embossing Pad Combo), you’ll never run out of creative uses for these supply staples. Today... Continue reading
