Baby Blues....More My Time Made Easy 38

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, January 7, 2010 @ 9:54 PM |

Hi Friends! Today, I am here to show you yet another way to use the My Time Made Easy LLC © Pretty Impressions: All A Flutter stamp set along with My Time Made Easy LLC © Pretty Printables: All A Flutter paper & My Time Made Easy LLC © Pretty Packaging Shutt-erfly template. Our dear friends, DiDi & Quintin, just welcomed the arrival of Baby Boy Kingsley to their family so, I made them this gift set.

Lauren & Pam will be sharing their awesome creations today, so please hop on over to their blogs to see what they have done!

Here is my Baby Blues gift set:

I made a coordinating card & Shutt-erfly © gift box to accompany my gift. (NOTE: the baby shoes in the photo were my 21 yr old son's first pair of shoes & the teddy bear came from my 19 yr old daughter's collection that I am saving because I know, one day they will both want these treasures :) The Shutt-erfly © template is so useful for any occasion gift giving & you can easily embellish all 4 sides. I love this All A Flutter © Brown Polka Dot printable paper :) (I probably sound like a broken record, but I really hope Lauren offers this in EVERY color imaginable! It is so pretty & versatile!)
To make this tag, I first cut a circle using a Spellbinder's circle die from a piece of SU Very Vanilla cs, then I embossed the Cuttlebug baby foot prints. I placed the sweet image from the All A Flutter © stamp set on the stamping block sort of bending it as I secured it in place, then I inked it up with SU Chocolate Chip ink & stamped. I rubbed some Ranger Tim Holtz ink around the edges & gently around the embossed image, then layered with various sizes of Spellbinder's Scalloped Circles. I embellished all four sides of the Shutt-erfly © box with some multi-layered flower embellies. Some are made using various Shutt-erfly © & All A Flutter © Pretty Printables paper. How cool is that to make your own coordinating embellies?! If you run low, just print some more :)For color inspiration, I played along with the fun colors in Dawn's RSCC #21 & for sketch inspiration, I played along with Mercy's awesome sketch challenge, MTSC55. If you want some wonderful inspiration, I recommend visiting both of these sites & see what these girls, as well as the other players have created :)

That is all I have to share today. Thanks for looking & remember if you create something, anything using these products, please share! Be Sweet!

Tomorrow, I will be back with another Just Us Girls challenge & I am the Hostess :)
