OK time for my project!

I’m so excited.

I know many of you are intimidate by templates still. You really don’t need to be. ALL my templates come with very clear step by step written directions with photos. It really is easy, I promise. We even have a FREEBIE for you to try risk free!!! We have a freebie for our templates, digital paper and digital stamps! If you try it and need help or have a question, just email me! I do my best to help any/everyone to the best of my own abilities 😀

I encourage those of you who have tried my templates to write a review on our website! This is really helpful to others! Simply click on a product to read a review, or write one yourself. There are tabs to guide you.

OK speaking of templates……

Bouncing Baby Buggy ©© is an especially versatile template! I have so many ideas for it, my head just SPINS!! I know many of you are still seeing “child themed” projects, given the samples you’ve seen thus far, and the template “name”! I hope today will totally change your mind.

How about using the Bouncing Baby Buggy © template to create a Wheel Barrow??


Yes! This is seriously a Wheel Barrow made purely out of cardstock 😀 Isn’t it SO pretty! I about did a cartwheel over this one!

This template is so perfect paired with our newest release  So Sentimental © and the Fanciful Flourishes ©Pretty Impressions stamp set! Those two sets are a match made in HEAVEN!! So many ways to use them both, and they were designed to coordinate too (like everything we do at MTME!)


The colors used are Santa’s Beard,  Pasture, Thistle Stalk, Acorn Squash and Oat are perfect for Spring. I’m so in love with these colors. I am also in Love with Couture Cardstock! They have GORGEOUS textured papers and amazing colors to choose from. I feel like I have been able to add even more WOW to my projects with all the colors I have now.

I pulled up a photo that I GOOGLED of a actual wheel barrow when creating this. My first attempt was true to the actual wheel barrow style, and the wheel/handle bars were on the outside of the template.They covered my stunning design so I made them go under my decorative layer for my new and improved version!


The wheels are the same wheels (for size comparison if you were wondering) you receive in the template. I just made mine purty 😀 That STUNNING May Arts ribbon helps too.

This could easily be for a Wedding, house warming, gardening party….tea…..anyone!!!


Here you can see a closer view of the flourish pattern stamped in a green, and the added flowers stamped in rusty orange. It was so quick and easy but really POPS. I love that I can build my flower pattern, or choose no pattern at all.

The “Best Wishes” and sentiment from are So Sentimental © . The tag was cut using the So Sentimental Frame which is a perfect match to our set!! It makes the perfect cut every time 😀 The oval is created using a SU! Oval punch. Quick and easy.


Look at this GORGEOUS flower that I created myself to add to the flourish! The flower was created from our coordinating cut file Fanciful Flowers I will be taking some time soon to show how I create these. I think it really adds to this project.

When I think gardens I think bunnies! So I added a delicious Lindt Chocolate bunny to my Wheel Barrow


He come with a red ribbon around his neck……


I removed it an added my own to match my project.

I did put a block inside do he didn’t fall to the bottom! LOL!!  It is now hidden by grass! Now is the time of year to stock up on “grass” filler too. I use it all year round.

This is the other side of the wheel barrow.


It is ALWAYS important to make your project look complete on all side. Don’t get lazy 😀 or messy!

This could also get filled with flower/vegetable seeds, maybe a small planter?!  You could fill this up with all sorts of yummies.

Or just like me…this cute lil chocolate bunny.
