Just Us Girls Template Challenge...JUGS17 39

Mona Pendleton | Friday, January 22, 2010 @ 10:00 PM | , ,

Happy Saturday Everyone! Thanks to all who played along with the Just Us Girls color challenge last week! There were soooo many pretty creations to gaze upon :) This week Maria is our lovely Hostess for this VERY SPECIAL 3D / TEMPLATE challenge with a TWIST! Lauren, the amazingly talented designer of the My Time Made Easy product line is sponsoring the Just Us Girls template challenge, JUGS17! Lauren has provided ALL the JUGS DT girls with one of the MTME © Pretty Packaging templates called Happy Mail © & one of the MTME © Pretty Impressions stamp set called Critters With Heart ©. The TWIST being, this challenge is also a SNEAK PEEK of just a FEW of the various MTME © products that will be available February 1st!Here is my sample of the MTME © Happy Mail 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!)






I cut my Happy Mail © Happy Bird-day template from a piece of Bazzill Cameo cs. Before assembling, I "dressed" it up with DP, stitching it right on!
From this bird's eye view :), you can see the super cute MTME © Critters With Heart bird image on the tag. I first stamped him using Memento ink then colored him using various Copic markers & repeated this step-by-step, then with a super sharp scissors, I cut him out & adhered him a few glue dots.Using the Spellbinders Longest Scalloped Rectangle die, I cut 2 strips of trim that fit perfectly without any trimming necessary!

Here is my Happy, Happy Bird-day gift set:

This sweet Happy Mail © template makes a cute, unique gift box that can be easily decorated for ANY occasion!

I tucked a small jewelry box inside! Afterall, BIG surprises come in small packages :)

I made a coordinating birthday card, repeating the paperpiecing steps for my little bird.

I just want to pinch this little bird's cheeks! He is so cute!

I hope you can join along with Just Us Girls this week :) For complete details, please visit the Just Us Girls challenge site & be sure to visit ALL the DT girls, Lauren & Gabby, (January's JUGs Guest Designer) to see more inspirational MTME © SNEAK PEEKS!
