MFT & Friends – July 2018 Release

Hello everyone ☺️ I’m soooooo super excited to be joining My Favorite Things today as a “friend” for their super gorgeous July release in the MFT & Friends series. If you haven’t already heard about this then you can find it here: ☺️ It’s a great way to join the crafting community while inspiring others with new products from MFT.

I have two projects for you today as it was so hard to choose just one hehe. ❤️ My first project is a card using the gorgeous new set from Birdie Brown – Saddle up and Celebrate. BB is my favourite in the MFT line and I was really made up when I got to play with this one … yay! For my second project I have created 4 super cute tags using the new stamp and die set – Safari & Friends and the new grassy edges stencil. I have a video showing you how you can use your new stencils, stamps and dies, as well as past products, to create super fun and happy tags. This can be found below or on my YouTube channel – Emma’s Crafty Cards. I hope you can join me me there. All supplies can be found below as well as links to the MFT store and blog. Happy crafting and I hope you enjoy this new release as much as I do! X
