Fluttering By with More My Time Made Easy 26

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, January 5, 2010 @ 9:55 PM |

Hi Everyone! Hopefully by now you have had a chance to see so many inspirational projects presented by Lauren & ALL the My Time Made Easy Design Team girls!? If you haven't seen theirs, I recommend hopping on over & show them some love! Have you seen my first My Time Made Easy Official Release projects or my Butterfly Garden featuring the NEW My Time Made Easy products? If not, please feel free to scroll down & just maybe you will be inspired to get creating with these gorgeous stamps, papers, templates & cut files! Today, BOTH Lauren & Kristin will be sharing some incredible projects along with me! I will be showcasing another set of both My Time Made Easy LLC © Pretty Packaging: All A Flutter & Shutt-erfly templates featuring the My Time Made Easy LLC © Pretty Impressions: All A Flutter & All A Flutter Sentiments stamp sets, My Time Made Easy LLC © Pretty Printables: Fluttering By & My Time Made Easy LLC © Pretty Pieces: Flutters & Flowers.

Here is my All A Flutter © Gift Bag & Tag set #2:As you can see in both of these photos (above & below) that I made 2 different sizes of the All A Flutter © Gift Bags! That is one of the awesome features about the MTME © Pretty Packaging templates - they are available in various electrical cutting formats which allows you to make the perfect sized bag to accommodate your personal needs! TOTALLY CUSTOMIZABLE!Using my Cricut Expressions along with the SCAL program, I cut the 2 various sizes All A Flutter © gift bag. The larger of the two measures 6.79"W x 6.94"H and the smaller measures 4.89"W x5.0"H. :) I cut the "wing prints" out of Basic Grey DP & rubbed them with a bit of Ranger Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink. Now for the tag - First, I stamped the MTME © "Follow Your Dreams" image from the © All A Flutter Sentiments set using SU Rich Razzleberry ink x 2, cutting out one entire image & coloring it with Copic R20 Blush marker then using image #2, I just cut out the "Follow Your Dreams" sentiment & adhered it to image #1, making the sentiment really show! If you enlarge this tag photo, you will notice the smaller layer of the tag that the butterfly is attached to is a piece of the MTME © Pretty Printables: Fluttering By - Brown Definitions paper. The tag itself was cut using the Spellbinders Labels 1 dies layered x 2 with SU Chocolate Chip,Rich Razzleberry & Naturals Ivory cs. I added a bit of texture to the tag using the Cuttlebug Stylized Flowers EF, inked the edges then stitched the tag together. I love flower embellishments or any embellishment for that matter! :) My dear sister hand crochets all of my fleurettes :)
I wanted to show you how versatile many of the MTME © Pretty Impressions stamps really are! With just one image, you can make a beautiful tag!I inked up this gorgeous MTME © All A Flutter sentiment image with SU Rich Razzleberry ink, stamped then cut it out using a Spellbinders Circle die. It fit perfectly! If ever in a time crunch & don't have time to make a card - make a tag! How easy is that? Surely to make any gift bag look gorgeous!

I hope you are not tired yet! I have to show you some more goodies! :)

Here is my Shutt-erfly Gift Bag & Tag #2:

I really wanted to show you how awesome this MTME © Shutt-erfly template really is! Just like the All A Flutter © I made 2 various sizes. The final measurement of the larger one measures from top to bottom 6"H x 3"W x 3"D and the smaller - 5"H x 2.5"W x 2.5"D. If you haven't used your electric cutting machine to cut your templates - you have no idea what you are missing! With a few clicks on both your computer & Cricut, you will have templates in no time at all!

Do you recognize these butterflies? If not, be sure to check out my Butterfly Garden post from yesterday! I show you my creative process on how these little creatures came to being & just how easy it is to create with these fun MTME © Pretty Impressions acrylic stamps & the MTME © Pretty Pieces: Flutters & Flowers.

The All A Flutter © set is one of my faves - it comes with several different "wing print" patterns allowing you to create a wide array of various butterflies!

To make this little tag, I inked up the sentiment image in the photo above from the All A Flutter © set with SU Chocolate Chip ink then punched it out, adhered it to the SU Really Rust tag, attached a heart & button! How sweet & simple is that? YET - looks so amazingly cute!

That's all I have for today! I hope you enjoyed seeing what I have been able to create using these new fabulous My Time Made Easy products? I would love to see what you create! Please remember to send me an email with a pic or link :) Be sure to check back later this week - I will have some more to share :) Be Sweet!
