     Now today the team and I are ALL using the NEW! Shop Around & Accessories Mega template to create a different themed a Shoppe and we are each using the Homemade Card & Envelope Pretty Pieces Cut File to make a card project to match our theme.

    Here is what I have come up with for today :D

    Time for Tea!

    Well if you don’t like coffee, but you love tea – or someone you know does, this Tea Parlor my be just the gift you are looking for!

    This gift set is simply stunning and full of interesting details. You can rest easy knowing this will most likely be displayed by the recipient for a long time to come, or re-gifted with style!

    I used the NEW! Shop Around & Accessories Mega template, with the Homemade Card & Envelope Pretty Pieces Cut File to create a matching tea themed gift set. I designed both to match each other. As you can see it was VERY easy, and lots of FUN!

    I wanted to package up some Biscotti and Raspberry Tea, to go along with my tea invitation.

    I used the NEW! Shoppe Window for my main focus of this gift set.

    I began by printing the Brick pattern from the Color Me Pretty Digital Paper: Constructions Materialson my Cherry cardstock. I LOVE this collection of paper because it allows you to QUICKLY and EASILY create realistic looking house patterns!!

    There are 9 different patterns: Bricks, Stone, Vinyl Siding, Wood Planks, Wood Siding, Wooden Shingles, Scallop Roof /Siding, Square Roof Tiles, and Spanish tiles!

    The patterns print horizontally and vertically so no matter what your project, your pattern can suit the  needs of it! Now you can have these fun patterns in any/every color of the rainbow with a few clicks of a button. SO FUN.

     I then cut and assembled my Shop Around & Accessories Mega template, and the envelope slider from the Homemade Card & Envelope.

    I added the stripe pattern from the Pretty Prinatbles Digital Paper: Cherry On Top Collection Cherry On Top.

    To avoid BULK on this I used printer paper for this one!! It works like a nice lightweight cardstock, only much easier to use when wrapping around the base of my template. I then wrapped around my ribbon.

    For my Shoppe Window, I printed the Cherry Floral pattern from Cherry On Top Collection , then cut out my awning top! Looks so pretty doesn’t it? I also stamped/colored/cut my lantern image.

    In the window I created a “scene”.  I stamped the tea pot image from On Display 1, I then stamped the mini tea cups from the Sign It set. On those I used a marker tip to create mini flowers on them. The wood grain pattern from the Home Improvement set fites perfectly in the window, so I used to make the display table. I then doodled the table end.

    For the look of wall paper I used the small flower image from the Fanciful Flourishes set, lightly in the background! I love that little touch.

    Now as we go towards the side, you can see my two side windows. They are from the Home Improvement set (as is the door).

    I used the Home Improvement Cut File to trim out my windows. Makes it SO much easier :D I love saving TIME.

    As you can see they are stamped and colored to match my Tea Parlor. I love creating little peeks into the house, through the windows! The possibilities are endless.  I used the small tea pot from the Just For You set, and again doodled flowers on it. The tea cups from the Sign It set, are the same as the ones I used in front window, and cupcake image is also from the Sign It set.

    Now lets move on to the other side…..

    teahusesidebrick.JPG

    Looks just like the side of an old fashioned store.

    I have my door, offset to the right, towards the back of the Tea Parlor

    I used the Home Improvement Cut File to trim out my door, then colored around the “trim”. I added a little brad for my door knob.

    Here is my sign

    timeforteasigns.JPG

    This label is from the Sign It set. This set has images and coordinating sentiments to match.

    I LOVE being able to create coordinating signs to display what your Shoppe theme is! The sign was also cut using the Home Improvement Cut File, and the trim also colored, like the door. I stamped the tea cup, and again made little flowers to add to the design.

    I used the same Brick pattern from the Color Me Pretty Digital Paper: Constructions Materials to create my chimney. Easy peasy.

    For the roof, I decided to use the scallop border building image from Home Improvement set to create my shingles. Once stamped, I used a gray copic marker to quickly add some color/dimension to the shingles.

    This easily fits my Biscotti and tea, as you can see here. This template is quite large and can hold a ton!

    cookies-and-tea.JPG

    I could have fit an entire package of the Biscotti, but I ate some of it while taking my photos! LOL!

    If you have a personal cutting machine you can alter the size too :D Now how fun is that?

    Now how about that invitation?

    Fashioned after the Shop Around Template, this coordinating cut file is a super sweet and rather large Shop/House shaped card & envelope file, that was created so you can further utilize the images from Home Improvement, Shoppe Window, On Display 1, and Sign it stamp sets.

    You can decorate the slide-on style envelope, to look *just* like a customized Shop/House and put your message on the house/shop shaped insert card!!How cute and perfect would this be for:Holiday card from your family-feature a photo inside!

    a special themed party (be it birthday, brunch/lunch/dinner, little girls invite)

    welcome to the neighborhood

    new home

    bringing home baby

    bridal shower

    open house

    school /store/shop themed gift card holder

    home Improvement

    moving/just moved

    House warming card or invite

    or other card/invitation?!

    No matter what the occasion, just the fact that this card is homemade, is sure to grab the admiration and attention of the receiver, no matter what the occasion!

    Today mine serves as an invitation to tea!

    Just like the Tea Parlor I created I made this to match.

    This time I used that mini tea pot from the Just For You set, with the little tea cup from the Sign It set.

    Now the envelope on this was meant to slid over the card, and it’s purpose is to also serve as the card FRONT in the fact that you decorate it like you would your card front, then as you slide it off, it reveals the INSIDE of your card.

    So the envelope is to the right, and the tall house shaped note card is to the left! This template comes complete with the roof pattern which covers the card top.

    I chose to use the A Spot of Tea set to really tie in this theme! It was the perfect addition!

    teacupinsert.JPG 

    I just colored and stamped the pattern to match! The flowers I stamped are from the Fanciful Flourishesset. I stamped them because they are the larger version of the flowers that are in my “wall paper” and look like what I doodled on the mini tea cups! The sentiment is also from the A Spot of Tea set
