Hope you are all having a sunshiney, happy day and are inspired to get creative after today’s projects.
Today is the official June Release 😀
In honor of our June Release we are having a group post, in which we will each share 4 card ideas, using some of the latest products we released!
You can view NEW! Products HERE!
You will find some amazing projects and ideas anytime you need some inspiration.
Now I will share my project for todays post!
Happiest of Days:
I chose to package up a set of fout cards-4 inches wide X 5 1/4 inches high, in the Disc-Covered DVD template! It makes an amazing card holder! We all know you simply can’t have enough ways to package up your handmade card creations can we?!
I used most of the patterns in the NEW! Spring is Here Pretty Printables Digital Paper on my entire project.
So here is my decorated Disc-Covered DVD
I used the Spring is Here Pretty Printables Digital Paper on my lid panels, as my main decor. I liked keeping it quick, clean and simple. The paper is all the dressing up I needed.
I actually made a quick “belly band” to wrap about the center of this template, using the decorative circle center as my decorative element. Just another fun option to simply dress things up a bit.
Once the band was slid off, and the tabs were unlinked, you open this up to find the 4 cards, and 4 envelopes.
As you can see they fit quite nicely in here 😀
Now for some card details
Here are the first two: Happiest of Days
I layered the fushia colored polka dot pattern to the tag top, which was colored in an olive color.I added the sentiment “Happiest of Days”.
To accent my tag I used the flower from the Sensational Digital Package © to accent my tag. I added a sentiment from the So Sentimental © set. I printed and ut 2 tags so I could get 2 cards done quickly.
You can design and print then cut a bunch of these for when you need a super fast card, or tag for an occasion. By switching out the image of the sentiment you can create somthing to suit any occasion!
Now here are two more!
Again using the NEW! Spring is Here Pretty Printables Digital Paper, I went with focusing on different colors within the patterns, for a very different, yet coordinated look.
W is for Wonderful
OH! I love this one.
This is a Lauren card 😀 Love the tag, sherbert colors, polka dots, flowers and butterflies.
The butterfly is from the All A Flutter © set, which I used the kissing technique on. I took the solid butterfly inked in olive ink, then stamped the polka dot image of the stamp directly on the stamp, before stamping on the paper, to remove the ink, giving me a slight pattern on my butterfly.
The flower in the lower right corner is from the Fanciful Flowers © (2nd flower down on left) cut file.
I stamped the W and sentiment usingthe Monograms Defined © set.
Chase after your Dreams
This uses maily patterned paper as the focus.
As you can see they all coordinate beautifully.
In the window I printed the sentiment from Chase Your Dreams © as the main focus, and then stamped my butterfly silhouette from the All A Flutter © set, and the flourish from the Fanciful Flourishes © set.
Then as I said above I just packaged them all up in my Disc-Covered DVD template!
Timed Write, Fanciful Flourishes, Monograms Defined, Sensational Stems, Chase Your Dreams
Spring is Here
Just Retail Tag, Fanciful Flowers

The paper I chose was the Fresh Cut Expressions © Collection 2, re-colored to suit my project colors 😀
I created the tag, and once printed, I punched out the tag topper image/sentiment with a circle punch.
This is a very tiny peek at the new set. It is super fabulous, as the team and I will be sharing more on soon!!!

The team and I will be sharing samples daily from now till the 5th.
In classic MTME style we have amazing templates, images, cut files and paper to coordinate your items perfectly!
Today we will be using one of the newest Pretty Packaging Templates: Fresh Popped!
I think you will agree this template offers a variety of possibilities, and fresh new uses and ideas for a long time to come.
Today you will want to visit:
I hope you are excited and ready for all we have to share the next week 😀
I have so much to share, and I think you will be excited to add these new items to your ever growing collection for some outstanding gift giving for all ages. We all know its all about the total package and this month is sure to help you package up some amazing gifts for festivities all year round.
So first up…
(we can all use one of those can’t we?!)
What a great way to surprise someone with a night out (like the Hubby for Father’s Day) or a movie night in 😀
Before I get into all the info on the images, let me share the New! Pretty Packaging Templates: Fresh Popped!
Fresh Popped $5
Available in PDF, SVG, GSD, DXF, WPC
This is an adorable scalloped topped box that will have your creativity popping with fresh and fun ideas and uses! This is the perfect party favor or gift box/bag. The design ideas are truly bottomless.
My sample uses the Fresh Popped! template, designed to look like a Popcorn Box. Filled with caramel popcorn (of course). I love having the scalloped panels, as they can open up a world of possibility.
I used the Popcorn Label image from the About to Pop! set, with some added elements from the set as well.
This set makes creating gifts more fun than ever. I love the label that Catherine designed.
I also added the box of popcorn from the set, which is featured on my bag of popcorn.
Isn’t this the perfect dressing to a simple bag of decadent gourmet popcorn?!
I just added these images to my bag, which is neatly tied with a ribbon.
The amazing Popcorn Machine image comes from the amazing Night at the Movies.
While the inspiration comes from the popcorn style box, but this really is so much more!
Some fun ideas for use:
Popcorn for a movie night
Add tickets or gift certificates for a night out
Add a handle for a fun new look, or “tote” style bag
Use it to create a “flower pot”
Fill with a themed gift for family night, date night, birthday or baby
You get the idea!
Now for more details 😀 Gotta love the details right?
How about that card?
I printed the move theater image from Night at the Movies onto the corner of my red cardstock base, to create my card. I had print, cut and colored the old fashioned movie camera.
I created my date ticket using images from both the Night at the Movies and About to Pop! Adding a smaller version of the bag of popcorn 😀 I then took the movie board image, and added my own typed information to customize my image and date details.
Using the digital version of the images allows you to easily resize, layer, mirror and customize your images to suit your project needs. I love that. This offers so many more possibilities that your acrylic images. You can manually color, digitally color or both, as I did on my card.
Now for the other contents of the Fresh Popped sample!
I know I already shared my deets on the popcorn, but what about the cool ticket shaped card?!
I enlarged the Hot Ticket Cut File, and merged two tickets together to create a ticket shaped card.
As I said I just combined the digital images from both the Night at the Movies and About to Pop! sets to create a fun ticket shaped card, used to hold a movie theater gift card, and designed them to fit within the enlarged version of the Hot Ticket Cut File.
Being able to use our Digital images with our Cut Files is an amazing concept. I did a video HERE to show you how easy it is.
That being said, this month we are going all digital!
All our NEW! Pretty Impressions Images we release will be available in Digital format only. We may return to offering the acrylic versions of our images, but for now, our customer majority is Digital, so depending on demand of acrylic, this is how we will proceed throughout the Summer.
That means all instant gratification for you 😀
I could play with the combination of using the digital version of these images, and cut files all day.
About the stamp sets used in today’s projects:
Making her designer debut is our one and only, Sara Williams! She has designed her first set for MTME called: Night at the Movies which features a realistic take on the star quality of Hollywood Movie Scene. This set is truly amazing, and even has some Pretty Printables Digital Paper to match 😀
Also in our stamp lineup this month, we have a set by both Catherine Doucette and I called About to Pop! This is a cute set of images to help accent all your cards and Pretty Packages, also with Pretty Printables Digital Paper to match.

As the June (can you believe it?) Release is fast approaching, I wanted to share a special video I did using some soon to be released digital images, and a coordinating cut file.

and the Pretty Patterns Challenge10
Sorry I’m MIA. Alexa had a little medical issue and now has to have surgery on Monday to have her port-a-cath. Then there have been many other medical crisis in my family, so I’ve been a tad busy.
I will have another post tomorrow.
They are the cutest images, just in time for Father’s Day, or any day that dad should be made to feel important.
Don’t miss our amazing set of sentiments just for dad!
This is a fabulous set of 15 sentiments that are sure to convey that perfect message for the father figure in your life! Whether you decide to use these on a card, tag, scrapbook page, or template, these will really add that sentimental touch for that special person.
There are several “dad” and “father” sentiments in this set so that you can pair them up with any of the sentiment verses, or use them by themselves.
Set includes the following sentiments:
Now to satisfy the GIRL in us all….
Amber is spending the day with the butterflies and chasing after her dreams!
I hope you enjoy these new images.
Samples soon to follow.
OK It’s a miracle!
I am actually posting a challenge, the day of the challenge 😀
I’ve been running like crazy, so it feels good to be “on time”. I won’t mention that my post is still a little late today, but hey, I got it done didn’t I?! LOL!
WARNING: This is going to be short & sweet!
OK today we have the Pretty Pattern Sketch 09
Now for my take on it!
I loved this sketch because it left you wide open for interpretation!
Rather than use an image I chose to utilize the pattern of my Bee Mine © patterned paper.
This card seriously took maybe 5 minutes to make 😀
Gotta love it.
OK I gotta run. I’m completing project for the June Release.
In a few days we also have our May 15th Digital release, so come back to see what we have in store 😀
Welcome back today!
I am once again quite late in partaking in the Pretty pattern Sketch Challenge this week, but better late than never right?
I was doing pretty good, but with the last release, kids on vacation and my mom’s surgery, I feel a bit behind the 8 ball.
I needed to create a card for my mom that conveyed the message that I was proud of her, and depsite all the pain she is in, and how tired she is that she just needs to stay focused and keep moving forward!
So I chose the lates Pretty Pattern Sketch 08 to get me motivated and started on my card 😀
Click here to view pattern details and enter your submission to the challenge!
Keep strong and carry on
So this is the card I made my mom, to bring to her while she is in the hospital.
She seemed to like it, and really felt the colors where cheery!
Yeah! Mission accomplished.
The panels were created using the Bee Mine © Pretty Printables Paper collection. It made working with this sketch really easy.
I wasn’t sure what I wanted,where, so it just sorta came together.
I love when that happens!
Well that does it for me. Lots to do,but I’ll return really soon.
I hope you are having a wonderful Mother’s Day!
Isn’t every day Mother’s Day? I mean in some way I know there is always a “moment” that makes me celebrate being a mom. Now that the kids are at the funnest of ages, 6, 8 and 11, they do their own things to make me feel special. I LOVE their handmade cards, poems, and gift ideas. Jay and I always make the kids pick out their own gifts, and its really cute to see what their idea of what they want you to have is 😀
Well I’m going to keep this brief because I have the day planned for me 😀 I want to enjoy my children and I hope you enjoy yours (or your own mother,grandchildren, fur babies!).
I went to see my mom in the hospital yesterday and we arrived home pretty late, so this is a little later than I intended. Sorry about that.
So today we have our Pretty Palette Challenge.
I SHOULD have made a Mother’s Day card, but wasn’t thinking about that as I was running crazy all week, so all I could think was COFFEE! Stay AWAKE! Must have energy! LOL!
So here is my take:
OK so I added chocolate to the color mix. I always view chocolate and black as neutrals and fair game to add to any color combo, just as white, and ivory are! LOL!
Obviously this card uses all stamps 😀
I chose the sentiment in the upper right corner, and to make my pattern along the card bottom from the Fancy a Cuppa? © set.
I just had fun with this, and went where inspiration took me 😀
Thanks for stopping by.
I’ll be back really soon.
Be sure you check out ON THE BLOG, what the team did using this color palette!
As you all may be aware of, to celebrate the last day of projects, we have a feature called A Year In Review! This is when the team and I all take an older template, stamps, and paper, and make a NEW! project to inspire you.
You all seem to really love this feature, as these projects give you new ways to use older items and give many more fresh ideas. It may help you fall in love or find a product you may have previously overlooked
You won’t want to miss all the amazing projects from the team today:
Today my project uses a rather new template, that you may have missed.
I wanted to share that this template does offer some versatility, so I hope you enjoy it.
They were the perfect opposite of what you’d expect from a template called: SK8 Board Box
The flowers are all dimensional.
It is so fun to color each stripe of the petals in different colors.
As I mentioned on the 1st, I love using black, as it offers a real pop against whatever colors you pair it with. This design actually comes inspired by some new bedding I just bought for Alexa’s room.
The colors are so fresh, and fun. So tween. They match her room decor perfectly. The underside of her bedding has the same colored polka dot pattern which I was able to achieve using the Darling Dots © paper.
I’ll try to locate a photo of the bedding to share 😀
Well that completes my release projects!
Be sure you check in here this month and at the MTME Blog as we have challenges every Sunday and Thursday, as well as our upcoming Digital Release on the 15th!!
See you soon 😀
