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!
