My Time Made Easy - March Release 49

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, February 28, 2010 @ 9:57 PM | ,

Happy March 1st Everyone! Here today to share a sample of what I made featuring Lauren's, My Time Made Easy © Pretty Packaging template: Card Catch All, © Card Catch All Card & Envelope cut files & My Time Made Easy © Pretty Impressions stamps: So Sentimental, Bringing Home Baby & Fanciful Flourishes that are available TODAY for purchase in the MTME © webstore. Lauren & All the MTME DT girls will be sharing some amazing samples as well, so please be sure to stop by to see what everyone has created!

Here is my © Card Catch All Gift set:

The © Card Catch All in the photo above was made at it's "original" size, which easily holds 4-6 cards depending on how much you embellish them. If you are like me & like to layer, use big bows, tags & buttons, 4 fit easily without squishing anything :)

This template takes virtually no time at all to make, as the score lines are clean & simple. For today's project, I used the © Card Catch All as a gift box to present this set of coordinating All - Occasion greeting cards.

To make this darling little tag, I first cut a scalloped circle using a Quikutz die then I inked up one of the many beautiful stamps from the © Fanciful Flourishes set & stamped a decorative border all with one stamp! The © Fanciful Flourishes set is full of versatile stamps making it an extremely useful all around sort of stamp set! To make the center of the tag, I combined the A Gift for You image from the © Bringing Home Baby set & the With Love image from the © So Sentimental set, inked it up then cut it out using a Spellbinders Circle die.

Each card was made using the © Card Catch All Card cut file which is tri-fold card. I inked up a variety of the © Fanciful Flourishes images with SU River Rock & Floral images with SU Pretty in Pink & randomly stamped the outside of each card. These flourishes are so elegant making them a wonderful addition to my stamp collection!

Although each card is the same design, I wanted to show you a sample of several images from the © So Sentimental & © Fanciful Flourishes sets. Remember: BOTH contain so many more!

I made the inside of each card simply by cutting a piece of PTI Sweet Blush cs, then stitching on a strip of both pre-stamped DP paper that I made using several images from the © Fanciful Flourishes set & a piece of My Mind's Eye DP. I tied a bow then adhered the scalloped center showcasing the sentiment.

That's all I have for today, remember to stop by to see what Lauren & ALL the MTME DT girls have to share for inspiration!

If you make anything using any MTME products, I would love to take a peek! Please feel free to email me a photo or send me a link :) Thanks for taking the time to look - I will be back Wednesday, March 3rd to share another MTME project. Be Sweet!
