Prickly Happy Mail...More My Time Made Easy 27

Mona Pendleton | Monday, February 1, 2010 @ 9:57 PM |

Hi Everyone! Today I am sharing another gift set that I made using all NEW My Time Made Easy products included in the February Release!
I am calling this little gem my "Prickly Happy Mail Gift Set".

I love how Lauren has made it all possible to cut ANY of the MTME © Pretty Packaging templates using your personal electric cutter if you choose! Not only does the machine do the cutting for you but you have the flexibility to change the size of the template. Making it TOTALLY CUSTOMIZABLE!

I increased the size of this particular © Happy Mail template by 10% of its original size. Making it a perfect size to hold 8 See's Cinnamon suckers. My hubby's favorite :)

After inking up & stamping this cute little prickly porcupine image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the © "I'm stuck on you" sentiment with SU Real Red just below. The © Critters With Heart stamp set contains several sweet little critters & many coordinating sentiments making it quite a versatile set!

This cute little porcupine image was a perfect fit on this 3x3 note card matted on a multi-layered scalloped square frame cut using several Spellbinders scalloped square dies. To make the postage stamp, I stamped the square image containing the heart, punched it out, then layered it on a square cut using a Spellbinders Scalloped square die. The © You've Got Mail stamp set contains so many different images all interchangeable making it super easy to mix things up a bit! The possibilities are numerous!!!

That's it for today - Thanks for looking :) If you create anything using any MTME © products, please be sure to send me the link so I can take a peek!

Head on over to the MTME store & see for yourself how incredible these products really are! I am sure Lauren & ALL the MTME DT girls have awesome creations to share with you to get your MOJO in motion so, be sure to visit each of their blogs & leave them some love!

This is just AMAZING!! There's so much to look at! All that layering, how beautifully it's put together, the colours, that cute little hedgehog (I know, you mentioned it was a porcupine, but we don't have them in the UK and I thought it was a hedgehog when I saw it ;) )
It's just a stunningly wonderful piece :)

Unknown said...

Oh, MY WORD, Mona! Everything is fabulous - the projects (I LOVE hedgies), details, props, etc.!! I think my favorite part may be your mention of the cinnamon See's suckers, though ... :)

AKiteFlier said...

TOTOTOTOALLLY adorable - OMgosh that little hedgehog is just a stinker he's so cute! I love all the sewing and the bit of vintage ink and all your accents - flowers and hearts and buttons and pearls OH MY OH MY! Super sweet - now I KNOW why I like your DH - I'm a See's sucker fan too but I like the butterscotch and cafe lattes!! SO 10% increase is GOOD TO KNOW!! LOL.

Oh - one more tiny favor - can you take the "T" out of my last name on the list of DTs on the post? It's Imholz (pronounced like there is a T but there isn't) THANKS sweet one.
