Talking For April, the BOYS are back in town!

Join us this Wed night, April 1st at 9pm EASTERN as we celebrate our April Release! We are releasing:

Girls Night Out

How about a dose of monthly poetry to get you in the *mood*?

This month at MFT, the boys are in town,
And it’s Girls Night Out with friends all around.
With Carter you’ll Cuddle and Ben you’ll adore,
While Flopsey has sweet smelling treats galore!


HERE is the gallery link to all the April goodness.

Our Hop Around the Block will go live at midnight TONIGHT starting on my BLOG and will feature eye candy galore with an MFTreat at the end.

The One-Click Collection will be on sale for $49.95 for the FIRST 48 hours after the release only! Purchase it at it's special price until Friday night at midnight EST.

Erin, yes you can. Because you were one of the top 10 and received this set, you may switch it out for any other set on the site. Please list your choice in the comments section along with a note that you are switching it out because you were in the top 10. Thanks.

I Love Carter, and I love him even more after reading Carole's note in the newsletter. I am weepy, that is what being a mom does to you . I can't wait to buy this set.

LOL, I feel bad complaining but man am I tired! lol

I have a question for you Kim, I see you have new paper pannels coming. Can you tell us more about them? Can you use Copics with them? I am down to my very last piece of Papertrey White cardstock that I use for coloring with Copics. I need to order something fast! Will the new pannels work for this?

Yes, yes and yes!!! The panels are quite literally the best paper I have found for coloring with Copics and/or Prismacolor Pencils (with or without gamsol).

You will definitely want to stick with you favorite 8.5 x 11 paper for your card base since this paper is extraordinarily expensive, and the panels are 4.25 x 5.5".

I am quite sure you'll love it!!!

Talking Hi Everyone

Hi Everyone, first I have to say thank you to Kim and her team for all the eye candy and the wonderful stamps being released today. Well, I will be stalking until later tonight. I must finish my homework and feed the kids (DH and DS) before I can play.

Hi Kim,

Will the paper work with the Derwent Watercolos also? I was told at an art supply store that I should not use a blender pen with my watercolors but instead I should use a waterpen. I am having a difficult time with the waterpen and like the results of the blender pen much better. Any suggestions?

The new paper is AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME! I have finally found a paper that provides rich color, blendability AND doesn't soak up Copic ink like a sponge. It provides vivid color and looks good! I love it!

It came in the VIP pack. It's very nice and with all nice stuff I have to fight my urge to horde it instead of using it.

I don't like waterpens/waterbrushes AT ALL! I had an 'a ha' moment when reading a watercolor tutorial Cammie did on her blog several months ago when she said that she just used a regular paint brush and a cup of water to watercolor with since she didn't like the lack of control she felt with the water brush. It was totally one of those "Duh!" smack-my-forehead moments -- watercoloring is MUCH easier doing it the old fashioned way, IMHO.

As for the MFT paper panels and watercolors, I don't really think so. I think you'd have a lot better luck with a heavy weight (say 90 lb) hot pressed watercolor paper. They don't usually carry these in Hobby Lobby or Michael's (all of that stuff is cold pressed), but I've found large sheets of it at Art Supply stores and you can bring them home and cut them down to whatever size you want.
