What a week of posting, huh? I just can’t stop :] LOL Today is the final day of the January My Time Made Easy (MTME) release which means it’s a group post! I couldn’t resist playing along again, especially considering I already had a template put together. Lauren challenged the team to use all old products today. She thought it would be nice to not only showcase the new stuff that’s available but also to revisit some oldies but goodies :] I’m all about it!
Some of you may remember the Air Force sent me away to school for two months this summer when Lauren released The Flapper template. I’ve been itching to use this one for quite a while, so this was a perfect excuse :] I love the design…it looks like something a gourmet sweet shoppe would use for its goodies.
I was pleasantly surprised to find how large this is! I fit an entire bag of trail mix inside and had room to spare! I used my MTME Natural Wonder paper for the decorative panels. I originally intended on making this a masculine gift, but I’m afraid my bow made it a little more girly than I planned. I suppose I could tie it in a knot instead and keep it manly :] LOL
I used my Trendy Tags 2 cut file to create a tag with SU Crumb Cake cs. I scored vertical lines to give it character and added a Crumb Cake oval with my sentiment from MTME Just For You. I layered both with dimensional tape. My ribbon was a steal at Michaels MONTHS ago…Martha Stewart marked down to $0.99 (normally $6.99)! Love it! I ran an espresso pen along the edges of the paper to make it pop just a little more in some areas, but I really didn’t do much more than that! I guess if I’m showing you anything this week, I’m showing you that not everything has to be complicated. Sometimes clean and simple is just as effective :]
This is all I have to share today, but our DT has a ton of inspiration for you!
Thanks for hanging with me this week! I’ll be back on Saturday (if not before) with our JUGS challenge :]
