MTME -- Preview Day 1

Can you believe it is that time of the month again?  Boy, is the time flying by with the holidays coming!  I absolutely love this template for today's project.  I hope you do too!
Don't you love it?  This little gem is called Wine & clever.  I have a friend who absolutely loves sparkling apple cider, and I thought this would be perfect for her!
I used the new Vintage Vineyard Sentiments stamp set for the label...way too cute!
This is how the top many possibilities!  I added a couple pointsettias, a little greenery and, of course, a glittered bell.
I embossed white panels on the side with a snowflake embossing folder.  The only thing you need to do to open the box is untie the ribbons...easy peasy!

I sure enjoyed this project and it was super easy to assemble.  I know you will enjoy it too, so please take a look at the rest of the sneak peeks for a little inspiration!

Cutting Cafe -- Christmas Ornament

It's almost Christmas time!  I have a little something for you all to bring in the spirit of Christmas.
This card reminds me of Thanksgiving Day when my family and I decorated the tree.  I just love looking through all the ornaments while I am putting them on.  Every one has a special meaning to me!
I wouldn't normally mix this angel with this ornament, but I have one almost exactly like it on my tree that was given to me when I brought my daughter home from Guatemala.  It is the most precious gift.  I still can't believe it was seven years ago...God has blessed me in so many ways, but she was truly the best blessing I could ever have dreamed of!!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by and letting me share with you.  Please stop by the Cutting Cafe to see what other little goodies you can find!

MTME -- Year In Review

It's time for our year in review again over at My Time Made Easy.  I just can't believe how fast time has flown this year.  I went out to Wal-mart today and couldn't believe it was time to shop for Christmas again...whew, I'm not ready for that yet!

I decided to make for my project some Christmas tags that I will give to some friends of mine.  I love making them...and receiving them.
I used the new cut file Pop in Pillow for the tag holder...too cute don't you think?  The paper on the pillow box and the background of the tag is called Femmie Flakes and Fuzzies.
Don't you love this tag?  I used the Just Retail Tag cut file for the tag shape.  I used the acrylic stamp set Money Well Spent.  I love this set.
The flower is made from using the round Spellbinder dies to cut the felt, which I then clipped to give it shape.
And here is a final look at the whole set.  Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you found some inspiration in my set!  Have a fantastic weekend!

MTME-- Post Release No Bones About It

Good morning, everyone!  I was having a little difficulty with my camera and I finally had to break down and borrow one so I could get my post up.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful morning.  I am so excited to show you this project.
My daughter loves everything dinosaurs, so when I saw the No Bones About It template with the new Not So Dangerous Dino's stamp set, I was smitten.
I love how this stamp set can be used for both girls and boys.  The triceratop and what my daughter, Kaylee, lovingly calls the "long neck" are her favorite dinosaurs, so I knew I would have to use them on this cute template.
I used a couple stamps from the Pawsitively Sweet stamp set that was released this month to create a little label.  I also used the paper from the Taylors Teeth Nomad Teal Leaf paper set.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek.  Please check out some inspiration by the other DT members and don't forget to stop by My Time Made Easy to do some fun shopping!

P.S.  Some of the girls on the team have been affected by the storm Sandy and a few are under the weather with various ailments.  If you could maybe say a little prayer for them, I'm sure they would really appreciate it.
Again, thanks for stopping by!

MTME -- Release Day Crazy For Candy!

I just have to start off by saying don't you love it when you start out a project with a certain idea of how it is going to look and when it is finished, it is exactly what you hoped for?

Well, you will certainly be very happy with the release this month at My Time Made Easy.  Lauren never ceases to amaze me with her talent.  So without going on and on and on....oops, already did that!
Now, that is just darned cute, if you ask me.  I took the Crazy For Candy template and instead of using the cat and dog cut files, I used the Made of Snow digital stamp.
Is that face not precious?!  I enlarged the stamp and cut out the pieces that I needed.  I cut the face out and burnished ultra fine glitter on it.  I then colored it in with Copics.  I did the same with the bow.
 I used some spray adhesive on the body and used mica flakes to give it the snow look.
My mom is a member of the Emblem Club and they have a Christmas luncheon.  She now wants me to make 50 of these for place settings at the table!  Guess I better get started now, huh!

Thank you so much for stopping by and please visit the other girls to see what they have to show you.  You know it's going to be great!
