The peeks for the February My Time Made Easy release have begun!
If you missed the MTME blog post from yesterday, you should really check it out!
This month Lauren has done it again with another super cute template, some adorable cut files and 3 stamp sets. One that had me absolutely SWOONING the moment I opened my package!
The template: Creative Card Candy (actually includes 2 templates!!!!)
This template is a 2 box style template. One fits 3x3 cards and the other is a longer box of the same design. I have used the longer box version today. And I have chosen to put some long cards inside (fit perfectly inside a standard envelope! But you could put all kinds of treats... think chocolates, pretzel stix, etc. Hence the name Creative Card Candy!
Below is my project I made for my Mother-in-Law. Her birthday is coming up in just a few weeks. :D
I'm not going to lie... i put my ribbon on the wrong way. before I realized it, I had glued my inside cover into place. SO i thought... well, i'm just going to rock it this way! But then i wanted a good way to keep the box closed. While having my ribbon the CORRECT way (dont worry, there are great step by step directions with photos...) would have been perfect, i added this little flap with a flat back magnet on it to keep it shut. SO, if you were wanting a non ribbon closure, this would work great!
I used every one of the new stamp sets on my project! The flowers and butterfly are from the Bold Botanticals set. This is the one that had my heart all a pitter patter!!!
The letters i used to spell out Nancy's name are from the Monograms Defined set.
And last but not least, the extra words are from the Framed Elegance set (which also has a wonderful new label! You'll see more from me and that set coming up in the next couple of days!)
Below is one more view, a little more straight on...
Thanks so much for stopping by!
