MTME May Release Day!!!

Hello! Today is the My Time Made Easy © May release day! All the products that the team has been peeking are now available in the store HERE!! The team is showing cards today!

I loved all of the new stamp sets this release (6 in all!)! Teacher Appreciation Week is next week, so I took the opportunity to make cards for Sabrina's teachers and para aides. I used a couple of different layouts and made a total of 6 cards. I used some of the new release digi papers. The ABCs Candied Apple print was made by Kristin Bueter, and the fun Trace-It-ABC print was made by Sara Williams! For my first card, I used Sensational Sentiments © (it reads You make me a better person) and stamped the sentiment inside one of the circle borders from Paper Pattern Pieces ©. I cut the circle out with my Spellbinders Circle die and mounted it inside a Spellbinders Star.

I was moving some scraps off of my table when I ran across the decorative front piece that I had cut for the Pucker Up © template. I thought it would look nice on a card front, so I cut a few out of the same ABC Candied Apple print that I used above. I stitched it onto some white cardstock that I ran through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and stitched on a punched border on the bottom. The flower and sentiment are from Sensational Sentiments © and reads "Thank you for helping me grow into who I am today".

Please be sure to visit the rest of the MTME team today as they are also showing off some of their card creations... you definitely won't want to miss any of it!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
