Good morning blog readers! Today it's time for another installment of I Spy with MME. Every day we scour blogs, online galleries, Facebook, and Twitter to find examples of layouts, cards, and other projects using our products.
Once we find eye-catching,inventive projects...we pin them to our "Inspiring Cards and Layouts" Pinterest board. If you need some majorly inspiring eye-candy to get your mojo going,then head on over! We promise that it will be just the thing to get you creating this weekend. We have some RIDICULOUSLY talented customers and fans! :)
Today we have six projects that we wanted to share with you. Each designer's name is linked to their blog. So make sure to stop by, say hi, and see more of their talents!
Designer: Katharina Frei
Katharina says: My husband has been "requesting" a new desktop calendar for his workplace for some time. I chose photos from different months of the past year and papers from various MME collections (The sweetest thing, Lost and found 3, Miss Caroline).
Why it caught our eye: What's not to love about this project? It's graphic, sleek, and chic. It's minimalist and fuss-free and we LOVE it. This is a calendar we'd proudly display if it was ours.
Rebecca says: I was thrilled to find lots of My Mind's Eye Collectable goodies in the February Scrapbook Circle kit Story Time. I wanted a design with circles to highlight the larger sized pins I was using so I die cut the grid circle background. I was excited to find that the My Mind's Eye Collectable "Cute" decorative stickers also fit right inside the circles! And the Tiny Word stickers were perfect for adding little phrases here and there and even one word right on top of the pin's heart.
Why it caught our eye: This layout is major eye candy. The attention to detail is phenomenal and we could just look at it for hours. We love seeing bits and pieces of our products used in such fresh and inventive ways!
Amy says: As a card maker I am normally a huge fan of MME 6x6 paper pads but I couldn't resist the new cut apart paper in the larger 12x12 Collectable line for this fun birthday card.Why it caught our eye: This adorable card made us smile the moment we saw it. It's just happy all around. The bright colors, the sweet scattered embellishments, the little boy...just joy in card form.
Pam says: I loved the shapes of the My Mind's Eye paper so much! I cut out a few shapes and places patterned paper underneath that area to give it that patterned look.Why it caught our eye: Pam makes Indie Chic look like a work of art here. It was actually really hard choosing just one of our layouts, as she uses MME flawlessly on every layout. Take a look at her gallery here. We love the hand cut work here, the "window" effect is genius.
Melissa says: Adding vellum over the busy floral pattern helped me tone down the color scheme while still allowing the pattern to be visible.Why it caught our eye: This page tugs at our heartstrings emotionally. For one thing, it is very honest and vulnerable. For another...it is beautiful aesthetically. The simple,strong design really lets the photographs and message shine. We love the way Melissa showcases our Lost and Found 3-Oliver papers in such a lovely way.
Brook says:These pictures of my daughter show just how much her personality is starting to come out at 6 months old! The Sweetest Thing line by MME is one of my ALL TIME favorites ever and I just love how they make my photos stand out and compliment them so well!
Why it caught our eye: First off...is this not the cutest baby you've ever seen? HA! We just think this page is the sweetest thing ever. It's no coincidence...Brook uses The Sweetest Thing collection here. We love the layering and clusters of sweet embellishments!
