How are you all enjoying the projects so far?

Be sure to visit the MTME Blog for our latest Pretty Palette Challenge!

I know I had a blast with everything this month 😀

It’s funny how excited I feel every release. I always think THIS ONE is the best. Each new template has me head over heels and each month I get a new favorite! LOL! I think the best part is, each month when I go to link the product and I view MY STORE I think WOW! How did I ever come this far? It’s amazing really. Now I have an amazing library of gift packaging to use anytime I want to give a gift, and look amazing 😀 Seriously most people I gift these completed packages to never even care what is inside! LOL!

Today we have a lot more to share with you so pay a visit to:

  • Well let’s start today off with some “repurposing”!

    I like to try to make everything as versatile as possible, and while not every single one CAN be, I have to say every element of the Keep It Template is useful 😀

    This particular template comes with 3 “templates” which are used to create the finished product Keep It. Each one as useful as the other. So,today I thought I would share a  new use for one of the three templates that come in the Keep It Template!

    A Stack of Drawers

    This is the drawer file, that is to be used on the bottom of the template!

    A very sweet 3 drawer gift set, complete with hand stamped patterned paper, pearl drawer pulls!

    Now think about the fun things you can package or sort/store in this beauty!

    Mini note cards

    Ghirardelli chocolate squares

    A photo box 😀

    Hair accessories

    Jewelry (especially handmade)

    craft supplies

    endless possibilities!

    I cut the 3 drawer bases in a gray cardstock, and the actual drawers in a lemon cardstock.

    I stacked the files (adhering them together) then made my decorative panels.

    I love the color combination of this, and the elegance of the finished product.

    This ribbon is actually quite stunning in person.

    It matches perfectly because it has the hues to yellow/gold as well as the hues of the gray/silver in there.

    My wire butterfly was the perfect little addition to this but you can add a charm, monogram tag, mini bird, flower, or whatever else you want to dream up.

    Now the paper!

    I made it myself,  by repeatedly stamping  one of the flower silhouette from the  Occasional Labels © set in a pale gray ink, then using my markers to color the flowers. I added a little more yellow to each bloom by using a dimensional gel pen!

    I also used a larger silhouette flower from the Framed Elegance © set. That was stamped in the same gray ink, but stamped off once, then restamped for a very subtle, but stunning “filler” in a larger scal, to take up some of the white space.

    So I hope you liked my take on this template.
