My Favorite Things

MFT July Release New Product Launch

Hooray! It’s finally here! All July Release products are now live in the My Favorite Things store and I just can’t wait to see what you guys make with your new goodies. As per usual, I have one more project to share with you today as part of the release series, and today I would like to showcase the fancy schmancy Star Shaker Window and Frame, as well as the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics.

I absolutely LOVE all these different shaped shaker products that MFT keeps coming out because not only are shaker cards fun and impressive for the recipient, but these coordinating pouches are seriously the best thing ever! I admit that one of my pet peeves about shaker cards is the uneven thickness of the card after adding double foam, any warping of the acetate, or it just gets plain messy. Consider me a bit OCD. But these shaker pouches has none of those issues, and best of all, it makes shaker cards easy.


For my card, I used the Star Shaker Window and Frame as a replacement for the ‘O’ in ‘YOU’, all die cut out of white card stock. I used the Star Shaker Pouches that coordinates with this window and used various green, white, and clear sequins to match my color theme.

I also love love love these Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips. I’m so happy to see this product released because I never have topartial die cut a strip ever again! The varying lengths of these strips give me the correct size I need for any sentiment! I have added these dies to my most used section of my dies as I’ll definitely be reaching for these quite often.

And to make a clear point, I’ve used 3 of the 4 strip lengths in my card today with different sentiments from the All About You stamp set. I heat embossed my sentiments in white onto alternating Sour Apple or Gumdrop Green cardstock. And then I die cut out the fishtail with the most appropriate length.

Aside from the shaker pouch itself, all elements of the card were attached with foam tape.

Thanks for joining me all this week!

Happy shopping,
