Paw-fect Puppy Place

Hello ladies... (and gents, too). Are you just loving Lauren's My Time Made Easy release this month? Before I start... good news - the new MTME Gallery will be opening on the Sept. 1  and your eyes will pop when you see all the amazing projects in one place. WOO HOO for Lauren with KUDOS to Sara as well for making this dream come true.

Ok - my Paw-fect Puppy Place... created with the new mega template called Shop Around. (Be sure to read to the end to see the full set with card.)

I wanted a gift package for this cute l'il Webkinz Pug and Shop Around was the PERFECT solution.  I started with brown CS (from Couture Cardstock) for the base and pink for the roof. I then layered on some of the new Pretty Printable Paper called Poochy Paws. 

Stamp detail on the front. I used images from Home Improvement, On Display and Sign It.
From this angle you can also see one side of the Shoppe complete with window and window box filled with flowers. The Window and Window Box are a couple of the Shop Around Accessories you can add to your creative project.

This awning (accessory) is one of my favorites. How CUTE to make a little awning for the side or front of your shop.

I also used the Home Improvements Coordinating Cuts cut file and coordinating Home Improvement stamps for the window and the curtains. I stamped the little doggie (from On Display stamps) before I adhered the curtain.

Here's a look at the back of the Shoppe - added one of the Hexagon windows (cut file for the mat layer - stamp for the window). You can see how cute that awning is too.

A close up of the roof - I added a strip of pearls that I had colored with Copics. I wanted my pawprints going the same directions on both sides of the roof so the pearls covered the seam at the top :-)

Lauren thinks of everything and this month is no exception. She designed this adorable Homemade Card and Envelope Pretty Pieces cut file. What's really fun/cool about this is that you grab it by the roof and slip the card out of the envelope. (My envelope is the pink part). I used another digi paper on the roof called Painted Scalloped Siding.

Here's the card OUT of the envie...
It's quite good sized and I can write a nice message on the back of the card OR I can just write a short note on the decorated part.

And finally - the whole set - now isn't that just the cutest idea? Can you imagine how many different kinds of stores you can make???

Well I hope you are enjoying the new Shop Around.  Can't wait to see what YOU make with this super fun template.
