My BIG News! 63

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, December 19, 2009 @ 9:42 AM |

Hi Everyone! This is going to be a LONG post, so please bare with me as I have a lot to share! The time has come when I can share my BIG news with you!!!! You all know by now that I LOVE creating with Lauren Meader's Templates. First, to bring you up to date, Lauren is the AMAZINGLY talented designer behind ALL the Papertrey Ink My Timeless Templates. Lauren has spread her wings & has started her OWN company called My Time Made Easy LLC, www.mytimemadeeasy.com. My Time Made Easy products will allow you, the paper crafter, the ability to create your own coordinating creative gift packaging, cards & tags using MTME Pretty Packaging templates, digital Pretty Printables paper, and Pretty Impressions acrylic stamps!

So you ask, what is the BIG news? Well, Lauren has given ME this once in a life time opportunity to be a member on her MTME Design Team along with a group of several other INCREDIBLY TALENTED paper crafters!!!! :) PLEASE be sure to visit Lauren's blog to see who the other members of the My Time Made Easy DT are! :)

The My Time Made Easy webstore is OPEN NOW at http://www.mytimemadeeasy.com & has some REALLY awesome products available TODAY! Please be sure to visit the store for COMPLETE details & to see what is available at the moment. Remember to keep in mind there is SO MUCH MORE to come in the days ahead! The official MTME Release Date is tentatively January 3rd! While you are at the MTME store, be sure to sign up for the newsletter. The newsletter will keep you up to speed with all the current happenings at MTME & will allow you to receive SPECIALS :)

For the unveiling of The My Time Made Easy DT we all created using the MTME "In a Pinch" Pretty Packaging template.

(Note: you can rotate this image 360 degrees by doing the following... Within the photo, click and drag your mouse pointer to the left or right to spin the box! You can also use the left and right arrows on your keyboard or use the left and right arrows icons. You can also zoom in or out to get a better view of the box by using the (+) and (-) icons. Lastly, you can simply press the Play icon (circular arrow) to rotate the box automatically. Give it a try!)





One of the AWESOME features of the MTME Pretty Packaging templates is that they are NOW available in MANY formats - .PDF, .SVG, .GSD, and .DXF! For those of you not familiar with this "alphabet soup", these are all types of file formats which allows the MTME Pretty Packaging Templates available for cutting using a personal electrical cutting machine with the proper software! Making the MTME templates TOTALLY customizable to fit your needs! Something for everyone!

The In A Pinch template pictured above was cut using my Cricut Expressions & the final size measures 3" W x 6 3/4" H. For accent panels on all 4 sides, I used the beautiful FREE Lavender MTME 12 Days of Snowflakes digital Pretty Printables paper. I found when I printed this paper from my printer, the Lavender file coordinates wonderfully with SU Pale Plum & Perfect Plum cs.

Of course I had to make a coordinating Gift set featuring several different items ALL using the FREE MTME 12 Days of Snowflakes digital Pretty Printables paper! Yes, FREE! You can head on over to the MTME store & not only download the 12 Days of Snowflakes digital paper but there is also several other freebies including MORE paper & templates!

In the photo above you will notice there are TWO various sizes of the MTME In a Pinch box. The smaller one's final size measures 2 1/2" W x 5 3/4" H.

I used the MTME 12 Days of Snowflakes paper as my background paper. All I did was sponge a tad of Ranger Tim Holtz Tea dye ink around the entire perimeter for a vintagey look!

This is a closeup of the gift tag cut from the Cricut Tags, Bags, Boxes & More cart. I stamped some various coordinating paper & sewed strips on to the tag. Using a Martha Stewart snowflake punch, I punched the snowflakes, inked the edges & layered them x2.

Thank you so much for sharing this exciting NEWS with me! I hope you all head over to BOTH Lauren's blog & to The My Time Made Easy store! I am looking forward to seeing what all of you create using the MTME product line & I hope I can serve as an inspiration! Be Sweet!

Wow, what great news, Mona! I'm so excited for you. This seems like the perfect "fit" for you. You always do such a magnificent job with the 3D stuff. You will inspire all of us to buy Lauren's templates as they are released! This project is gorgeous. Beautiful, soft colors and textures and your stitching is always amazing. How on earth did you get this template to spin around like that. I could play with that for hours; it's so neat!

Wow, Mona, you are just full of fun surprises. I always thought that you should be with PTI because of your creativity, especially with the templates. Now that the "template girl", Lauren, is on her own, this is a perfect fit for you. It's amazing how things work out... Congratulations, you definitely deserve it! I love this project; everything this so lovely, especially the large box and the card. You coordinate so nicely. Love the 3D VR; that is totally unique to any papercrafting sight I've seen! Way to go!
