I have been chosen to be on the very first McMahon Five Design Team along with some other Amazingly talented ladies: Bonnie, Kristine, Lorelie, and Michelle. Stop by their blogs and see what they are showcasing for M5D today.
I never thought I would take on another DT position, but before I retire from them, I had to do this one last spot, because I could not pass up the chance to promote such a wonderful store for a wonderful person.
Sue (owner of McMahon Five Design) offers some amazing products in her store, and one of my very favorites is her wood paper and envelopes. It is unique to her and her store, and I have come to love it so much, that I can't seem to live without it ; ) Once you try this out, you will see what I mean and want to stock it in your closet too. It is the perfect thing to grab when wondering what to use for that hard-to-make masculine card that so many of us struggle with. It is also great for nature cards and truefully looks beautiful on any themed card. Check out Sue's Idea Alley to see some samples. M5D also carries a wide variety of other supplies from Digi Stamps, rubber stamps, Primas, gems, nesties.....and the list goes on and on. Her prices are amazingly some of the most affordable that I have seen out there too. It is a one-stop shop for me which I why I am so extremely excited to be a part of this wonderful team.
M5D puts out a wonderful newsletter to keep you posted on the latest in their shop, and if you sign up for it, you will receive exclusive tips, tutorials and coupons to use in the store. Sue does her very best to find out what crafters are struggling the most with and will give some of the most helpful tips to make things easier for those of us that may not be able to figure some of this stuff out. I know for myself, Sue has helped me tremendously with working with digi stamps. I used to avoid them just because I didn't know how to use them. Now, I just love the wider variety of images that are available to me because I have learned how to use them. Sue also offers freebie digi's occasionally, and they are really awesome, so don't miss out on those.
Now, onto my card:
M5D and I couldn't resist using this for my first sample card as part of the DT. I used some of the wood paper to frame the image, and the nice thing about most of the wood paper is that you can still cut and use your nesties to cut and shape the paper. I also used some of the cream-colored flowers that are available at her store as well, and you can even get a variety of colors to choose from for the gems that I used in the center of the flowers. I am a gem addict, and I am really loving the self-adhesive gem flourishes out there now, and cannot wait to get some of them to start adding them to my creations. I hope that you have enjoyed my first sample card for M5D and that you will go check out the other DT girl's blogs and then hop over to the M5D store and see all of the wonderful things they have to offer.
Thanks for sharing in my excitement today, and I hope you will keep coming back to visit me. I will have much to show you in the coming months. Please feel free to leave me a comment. I would love to hear your thoughts and always appreciate your feedback about my work.
Many Blessings to you....Have a wonderful Day! ( :
