MTME Sneak Peek For Your New Nest

Hi Everybody..I first would like to Welcome Kathryn to MTME she is our Guest Designer this month.  Well your in for a real treat this,. Lauren has done it again. This months release includes 2 templates, 2 stamp sets, cut files and papers to match that are unbelievably creative.  Lets get started...
Have you ever wanted to make a bird cage out of paper... Well now is your chance. Here is my gift set.

Let's start with the bird cage... I was tickled pink when I started to put this together thinking of the endless things I could do with it, put in it, and give it away to. I have made mine into a night light. This template is called Caged. The flowers and branch were cut out using Branched out cut file.

I tried to get a picture of the night light and bird, but it really does not do it justice... As you can see I embossed the flowers and added a brad to finish them off.
A little Birdie cut file comes with this bird and 3 others. I have stamped her belly with the new stamp set called Singing Silhouette
The matching card was so fun to make. I took Fluttering By paper and used Singing Silhouette stamp set added my own images  to give it a new look. The bird cage is another Cut file being release this month called Caged Cut file . It comes with 2 files that fit perfectly with the Stamp set. Using the masking technique I added the swing for my little yellow bird to sit on. The yellow paper is called School plaid collection 2.  I know this is one of my favorite templates and sure you will love it just as much as I do... Well that is my sneak peek I hope I have inspired you :).. Need more inspiration check out the MTME Gallery. Be sure to stop by and see what the other DT members have made for you today :).
