Guest Designing for MFT - and VERY exciting News!!!!


Hi Everyone! 


Today I am sharing my last card as guestdesigner for My Favorite Things - it would have been a very sad day but instead it is probably the best day since I started blogging (-: - I was asked to stay and am now officially on the MFT Design Team - YIPPIEEEE!!!! I still can't believe it - I am so happy and so SUPER excited.

Welcome to my Party ! 



My son Ted turns 6 next week and on Saturday it's time for his birthday party. This is what his invitations looked like! Ted and I had so much fun playing around with the elements from 
Die-namics Photo Booth Props  and made each invitation look different. Inside each card there's an envelope (you've got mail) filled with props for his friends to play with themselves. I used self-adhesive on the back of my card stock so that they can easily add them to their own photos. 

This could of course also have been a  fun activity to do at the party or nice treat to hand out at the end along with a picture taken at the party.

I LOVE those speech bubble dies that comes with the props set too - so easy to use the computer to customize the sentiment for any occasion !

Thanks so much for visiting today and hope to see you back on the 30th when we start the release countdown -it is such a wonderful release - I know you'll love it!

Hugs, Karin

Supplies I used:

Die-namics Photo Booth Props
Die-namics-you-ve-got-mail
Adhesive Sheets

Hi Karin,

Then CONGRATS for this great news! So so happy for you and you deserve it! I love your creations (also watercolor art) and can't wait to see more this year.
Hugs,
Francine
