For those of you wondering WHERE on Earth my JUGS post is...it's coming -- some HUGE tehnical difficulties this weekend! But let's move on to the reason for TODAY'S post!
It's release day over at My Time Made Easy!!
OODLES AND OODLES of great stuff coming out today!
You'll see some of what you can order TODAY on my blog, as well as the rest of the Design Team!
My project today is using the Happy Mail template -- isn't it SO cute? Yes, I know - "what's new about a mailbox?" But really - how many $$'s have you spent on those target mailboxes?? Now, by spending $5, you can make AS MANY AS YOU WANT out of Cardstock -- which is a LOT less than $1 a sheet.
This whole ensemble (box and card) used 1 sheet of 12x12 cs, 1 8.5x11 sheet of designer paper and a 1/2 sheet (with some to spare) of 8.5x11 cs and some scraps. Seriously. It doesn't get much better than that!!
Since I use the Cricut Expression with my Sure Cuts a Lot software, it makes it SUPER easy, especially if I want to make it bigger too! With the option to use up to a 12x12 sheet of CS - that could make a really nice sized mailbox!! Soooooo, I'm sure you're wondering what the giveaway is...well, Canda over at Candacraft is SO AWESOME -- she's giving me a copy of Sure Cuts a Lot to GIVE AWAY to one of YOU! Yes -- you heard me!! lol. All you need to do, is post a comment on this blog post any time between now and 11:59pm EST on Friday, February 5. The winner will be chosen at random. Isn't that COOL??? If you have a Cricut, and don't have this software - you NEED it! And here's your chance to get it for FREE -- Thanks CANDA!
I decided to do a little baby gift set. The mailbox would hold a newborn onesie rolled up, or some baby socks. These projects use the new stamp set, "You've Got Mail" it's so cute and versatile - I can't wait to show you a card I made with it later this week!
The mailbox is trimmed with some lacy trim I picked up at Hobby Lobby the other day, and there's a filigree brad (SU!) holding the flag to the mailbox.
I used some great CS from Couture Cardstock, and that DELICIOUS patterned paper is from a NEW collection from My Time Made Easy called 'A Loving Heart'. Kristin did a FAB job on these papers...this navy one is my favorite!!
Thanks for stopping by today, don't forget to see what else the design team has created for you today - some of the girls are showing off another template available today -- so make sure you hop around!!
