Today is the day that My Favorite Things will release three new sets! They are so fun. I have been busy making lots of samples using these sets to share with you. I have cards and projects made. I am going to show you half of them today and the rest tomorrow so make sure to check back. The first project I have is a fun little doggie treat tin. I took one of those metal tins and added some dog bones inside. I used the new mini of the month on it also. This set is called "Friends Furever" and it features a cute little boy and his big doggie friend. I also has a dog tag and some fun sentiments. The sentiment on the tin is stamped in white Stazon ink. The second example is a card using the new traveling set called "Going Places". This set has tons of fun traveling images like an airplane, city skyline, luggage, and lots of cute sentiments. In this card I wanted to make it 3D so I cut out the map and places it on glue dots. I paper pieced her dress with some new Basic Grey "Sultry" patterned paper. I colored the rest in with my Copics. I also pulled out my cuttlebug and embossed some Kraft card stock with my Swiss Dots embossing folder. The brad is from Target's dollar spot. The last project is a cute little floral frame using both the "Friends Furever" and "Gone to the Dogs" set. "Gone to the Dogs" is a fun set that features tons of different dog breeds. This is a great set since I have three dogs and I am a loyal doggie lover. I used the bulldog image for this project since I wanted to frame my cute baby Chloe girl. The frame is actually a card board frame from Target's dollar spot. (I only picked one up but am going today to get some more!) I covered the frame with some DCWV Pet Stack patterned paper. I also used a circular chipboard piece from Cosmo Cricket to create a different layer. The little dog tag is from the mini. I cut it out from some left over Kraft embossed paper from my "Going Places" card. I really like how this turned out. Well that is all I have for you today but I have tons more to share night at the release party and on my blog tomorrow.

BTW My Favorite Things is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, May 7 from 9-11 p.m. Eastern time. Lots of fun is planned including finding out how YOU can be the next MFT Guest Designer. Head over to the MFT forum on to find out all the details and we hope to see you there on Wednesday night.

Love the card!! Plus, your frame is adorable & so creative! I'm sure you have many frames of Chloe throughout your house!! She's a good looking bulldog. I had one once. Her name was Baby Cakes.
