MTME Sneak Peeks & Some Exciting News

Today is such an exciting day for me. To start with I am sharing my Sneak Peeks with you for MTME November release. I have been anxiously waiting for this day to Share the exciting news that Lauren has asked me to join MTME as a permanent designer. I am so excited to be joining this Talented and Fun Team.. Thank you :) This Month Lauren will be releasing 4 Christmas Stamp sets, 3 templates , digital paper, digital stamps and cut files.Today I am sharing a new Template called Star of the Show.

This cute template goes together in just minutes. I cut the base of the template with MTME digital paper called Throw me a line. The top is cut with green and layered again with throw me a line to match. Before I assembled the top I used a border punch to give it a bit of an edge :).. The Poinsettia is a cut file that is available on November 1st. I used Laurens Tutorial for the rambling rose to assemble it.This gives texture and depth to my poinsettia. Final touches of sparkle and ta da a super cute gift box.

Here is the box opened. I have filled it full of gift tags. This tag cut file is available at MTME. I cut two tags, one in vanilla and the other in a solid color,I cut the solid one  half and added a border. The stamps that I have used are new this month. Secret Santa by Catherine Doucette and Dashing Threw the snow. (These are also available in digital form)


 Here is a close up of the tags. Aren't they sweet. This is going to make a perfect Secret Santa gift.


To finish off my  gift I have made this matching card. I Stamped my BG paper with the snowflake from the Secret Santa Stamp set and did a bit of sewing around the edges. My tag is made with Pretty Pieces cut files Called Trendy Tags.  These tags are great you can size them up to your project. They are all fun and fancy!!All of these new products will be for sale on (November 1st)Thank you for joining me on this exciting day. Hope you have enjoyed my project  and started your wish list as you head on over to see what the other DT members have created. :)
