It's the 1st which means lots of posts and goodies to share today!
Let's start out with the My Time Made Easy blog hop!
Since it's the holidays, MTME is taking the month easy just releasing 1 template, but OMG, this template is CAH_UTE! And i just adore how many uses it can have! Just Perfect for the holidays! Ok, so a LOT of the MTME templates are good for the holidays because afterall, the templates were created to take your gift giving to new heights!
The template being released this month is called Wonderfully Wrapped...
here is my take...
So sweet isnt it? I adore the way the side lays over each other. And you'd think it might be complicated? Oh, SOOOOO easy to put together! I'm thinking teach gifts, cookies for all the neighbors.... seriously! I have NO mojo these days with this wretched head cold and this came together so easy peasy! To spice things up a bit, i cut the decorative layers out of adhesive fabric and stitched it right onto the paper. The texture on it is divine!
Here's the side view. Now you dont have to cover where the flaps overlay, but i thought this button and cross stitch ribbon added a nice little touch. A simple bow, some bling, a flower, so many choices to dress it up or down!
One last photo for you!
Here is how i decorated the front. I wanted to keep it simple since I wasnt exactly sure who I was gifting to yet... and Just For You from the Just For You stamp set seemed to do just the trick! I stamped it inside one of the frames from the Killer Curves stamp set and tied it off with a brown tulle bow. BTW - i'm completely obsessed with Tulle at the moment!
Ok, so thats what i have for you before i pass out in bed!
Dont forget, there is more wonderful things to see from the design team!
