But first... it's time for our Die-namics Feature and Pre-Release Pep Rally!
Our Design Team has been busy creating jaw-dropping and inspiring projects for you, and we've saved the best for last.
We've taken an in-depth look at this month's Die-namics, while re-visiting the amazing sets being released tonight at 10 PM EST RIGHT HERE in the MFT Boutique.
And while we are at it, how about we make your life even easier with a "cheat sheet" of all that's new? Head over to the MFT Blog to print out a shopping list.
I am SUPER excited about the soon-to-be-released At the Movies Die-namics and Stamp Set. Every time I stamp, I watch a movie. I used to be a "music stamper", but about 3 years ago we had a space 19" flat screen with an included DVD player and I decided I wanted it for my stamp room. Ever since then, I am excited to buy movies so I can watch them, which gives me an excellent reason to stamp! :)
I've had this idea floating around in my head for a while now, and am SO excited with how it turned out. Before I get in to it, let me show you my Mini Movie Box, complete with box of candy, drink slot, and FELT POPCORN.
I created a VIDEO to show you how to create the Mini Movie Box. I also include cutting and scoring dimensions in the video, as well as within this post. To watch the video click HERE or click the "play" button on the embedded video below.
I used the At the Movies Die-namics and Stamp Set to decorate the front of the Mini Movie Box, and the candy box.
I made plenty of felt popcorn to fill my Mini Movie Box. To learn how to create the popcorn, view the video above. :)
I just ADORE the mini Movie Popcorn Box die and stamps found in the At the Movies stamp set. You can create cute, detailed popcorn boxes, very easily. Isn't that movie projector adorable?
Here is a look at my unconventional candy box. I filled it with Almond Joy Bits (kinda like m&ms). It is decorated with the Mini Film Strip and stamps from the At the Movies stamp set. I love the little numbers. Here, I am counting down to the start of the movie. 9, 8, 7, 6. :)
Here are the dimensions and scoring directions for the Mini Movie Box, which can also be found in the video above.

I wanted to make one more card with this set while I had it out. I made a card for my soon-to-be-12 year old daughter (my baby... how can that number be correct?).
I used the large, film strip frame Die-namics die included with the set to frame the greeting. The arrow is also a stamp from the stamp. I ADORE the "lights" font in this set. SO fitting. I used the small numbers to stamp the number 12 and framed them in the previously released Mini Film Strip Die-namics.
Here is that little projector again. SUCH a cute die.
Here are some ways you can combine the stamp set and die set:
Here is a look at the At the Movies Die-namics and Stamp Set. It's a HUGE 6 X 8 set with SO many dies, and so many possibilities. I give it 2 thumbs up! :)
