Everyday card

A gorgeous card from Rahel Menig!

"Chevron is a HUGE trend right now - I'm sure you've noticed that already. I wanted to make a simple and clean everyday card, but having a focus on different patterned papers. I simply cut one of the chevron pieces and used that as pattern for the other 4 papers." ~~Rahel

Eternal flowers

Some beautiful paper flowers made by Julie Tucker-Wolek!

"I love to make paper flowers and I had bought a mason jar at the antique store a few weeks ago and decided to make a little boutique for my co-worker!  For my 'stems' of my flowers, I wrapped green wire and them wrapped the wire in MME's decorative tape." ~~Julie
