my time made easy: A Year in Review

>> Saturday, February 5, 2011

Argh, sorry this is late everyone. I posted it to the wrong blog! My makeup friends are surely confused now! hahahaha!

Though maybe i'll convert some of them into mad crafters like me!

Ok... so, here it goes again!

Hello everyone! Today is another My Time Made Easy Year is Review blog hops!

Every month the MTME crew using some of our favorites templates, stamps, papers and cut files
to show you new ways to use some older purchases!

I went WAAAAAY back for this one. It's still one of my favorite templates to date because it is SO easy to put together! Talk about in a pinch gift idea!!!!

It's the Cutesy Cover template!


I covered the cutesy cover with fabric paper and wrapped velvet ribbon around it. I love all the textures! Right on top of the fabric paper, I used the dotted swirl stamp from the Fanciful Flourishes set. This stamp set is still one of my favorites to date because it has so many uses!
On top of the cutesy cover, I used the dotted flourish again and then a sentiment from another favorite set, the Just For You stamp set.
The first time i saw the Fanciful Flourishes set, i thought of steam for coffee. In fact, in one of my first uses, i used it to decorate a coffee much from the baby buggy! So imagine my delight when Lauren released a whole slew of coffee stamps! For my card, i used some images from the Grab a Cup set and a sentiment from the Grab a Cup sentiments set.

The sentiment is a straight sentiment. Thats why i love clear stamps, you can manipulate them! I just curved it on the block before stamping!
And if you look closely at the mug on the card... there are MARSHMALLOWS stamped on top.
You know why i stamped marshmallows?
Because those nestle packs fit perfectly inside this template!


It would make a perfect little treat for your snowed in neighbor! Or maybe that neighbor that plowed your driveway for you! In any case, everyone stay warm in this cold madness! ANd maybe make a treat for a neighbor!

Now check out the other amazing team members and see what they have for you today!
