My Thoughts Exactly August stamps release

It's that time of the month again: My Thoughts Exactly stamps release! :-)

This month there are 2 new stamps sets: Sweet Thoughts and Grillin' & Chillin'. The 1st one is all about, well, sweets!.. LOL And the 2nd one is about BBQ, picnics and pool parties... What better way to keep the summer spirit a little longer before Back to School sneaks on us?... ;-) 

As always, MTE stamps allow for a lot of playing around with words and creating just what you want... :-) You will see in the future how you can use those sayings in unexpected ways, but for today's projects I was pretty straight forward... :-)

For my 1st card I went all the way with the cupcake theme! And I used yummy Trendy Twine to make little sprinkles on my cupcake, just like one of the cupcakes on my background paper.... ;-) The digi paper and SVGs are from Lettering Delights. (It was my 1st time using photoshop to print digipaper and I was quite proud of myself, even if I had no clue what I was doing.... LOL Still I managed to make it lighter than the original, I even tried printing it on vellum but then it was a little too subdued...)

For my 2nd card I went with an ice-cream theme and used little tags to stamp my sentiment. Since MTE stamps come in little segments to assemble together, it's really easy to stamp them in all kind of different configurations... :-) I had a hard time picking between the Blue Berry twine and the Strawberry cupcake twine, so I decided to use both... :-D (And I used the new Kraft color to bring my little cone to life...)

Now that you have seen my projects, don't forget to visit Alyssa's blog. She has pics and links to all of the DT members' projects, plus a few interesting things to share with you!
For starters she will give away a stamp set to a lucky commenter, but also this month 2 of our talented DT members who design SVGs created a little surprise for you!: When you purchase the Sweet Thoughts stamp set, you'll receive the Sweet Shoppe Bag SVG (designed by Lenae from Sugar Gem) for free. And when you purchase the Grillin' & Chillin' stamp set, you'll receive the Burger-vite & its 2 envelopes SVGs (designed by my alter-ego Bee from Bee's Hive O' Drama) for free.
Both Lenae and Bee (aka Belinda) have projects using those SVGs on their respective blogs.
The cherry on top is a video of Brian (Alyssa's husband and the other half of My Thoughts Exactly) making his own card!.... ;-)
Don't forget to visit our other DT members' pages: Jennifer, Jessica and last but not least Thienly! :-)

Well I hope you enjoyed this release, and remember that there will be projects all month long (every Thursday) from Alyssa and the Design Team. :-)

I love how you and Alyssa use Twine. I love Trendy Twine but can never figure out how to use it. Everything I make with it doesn't come out right. Great cards, love them!

Also, I agree with Belinda - cats really are evil!
