Happy Friday!!

Welcome to my new blog!  After a LOT of frustration and work, it’s finally back together and I can start crafting again!  I am so excited to show you my projects for My Time Made Easy’s June release!  Fun, fun, fun!

This project features our NEW template, Tapered Off.  When I think Summer, I think watermelon!  Here it is…

Tapered Watermelon 1 (Large)

This template comes together so easily.  It was so much fun to use!

Tapered Watermelon 2 (Large)

The “seeds” paper is Darling Dots printed on Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

Tapered Watermelon 3 (Large)

Notice the patterned print on top of my box.  I used the Zebra print in Purse Patterns.  I changed the black stripes to green and printed on green cardstock to look like the outside of a watermelon.

Tapered Watermelon 4 (Large)

I used Nestabilities to make the watermelon slice with a bite taken out for the top.  😀

Tapered Watermelon 5 (Large)

The sentiment “Happy Summer!” is in our Tooty Fruity stamp set.

Tapered Watermelon 6 (Large)

I love dimension.  The dimension on this card is fabulous!

Tapered Watermelon 7 (Large)

I think I’m going to have to use this for decor in my house for awhile before I can give it away!  It’s so happy 😀

Good Morning :-)

For those of you who don't know, my domain was stollen a few days ago.  I have been working frantically with godaddy to get it back.  However, that's not going to happen.  My new domain is (instead of  In the process of changing everything over, I have encountered a few obstacles.  One being that none of my posted pictures are visible.  Typepad has advised me on how I can get these back…one by one.  This will take some time.  Just know that my blog is going to be a work in progress for a few days, and that it will be back to normal soon!  Thanks so much for your patience and understanding.

Have a great day!

Happy Thursday!  😀

Today is my last project to share for our April release.  I’m using our Shoe Box template.  One of my friends just had a baby boy, so I knew exactly what I wanted to use this box for!

Baby Gift Box 1 (Large)

Anything baby is just plain cute!

Baby Gift Box 2 (Large)

Like the dots?  You can find it in our Blue Skies digital paper pack.  I changed the colors to fit my project before printing.  This bow is made using Abra-Bow-Dabra; easy and amazing cut file!

Baby Gift Box 3 (Large)

This box measures 4 inches tall, 5 1/2 inches wide, and 9 inches long!  I have wrapped up two, three-piece outfits inside.  Nice and roomy!

Baby Gift Box 4 (Large)

Love, love, love this Lil’ One-sie cut file.  I colored and printed the giraffe (from BFF Valentine) to match the dots on my box.  CuTe!

Sexy Soles

7 Thoughts

Hello :-)

Have you checked out all our NEW products at My Time Made Easy?  Today I’m showing you a new, fun way to use our Sexy Soles template.  I love thinking “out of the box.”  Possibilities are endless!

Sexy Soles Flip Flops 1 (Large)

Flip flops anyone?  I love them!  I only used the sole layers in the template.

Sexy Soles Flip Flops 2 (Large)

I embossed the soles using a flower embossing folder.

Sexy Soles Flip Flops 3 (Large)

The straps are made out of hemp twine.  I love the beachy feel the flowers give them.

Sexy Soles Flip Flops 4 (Large)

You can find this sentiment in our NEW Sole-Mates stamp set, along with more fun sentiments and images.  I used a digital paper from Under the Cabana for the background.

It’s RELEASE DAY at My Time Made Easy!  If you like shoes and shopping, this release was meant for you.  Today I’m showing you a NEW template, Handbag.

Cheetah Handbag 1 (Large)

Amazing, right?!  This digi paper is called Chic Cheetah, and is part of our NEW Purse Patterns paper pack.

Cheetah Handbag 2 (Large)

The pockets are emobssed using a bubble embossing folder.  They are attached with dimensionals in the center and tape on the sides so they stick out a little.

Cheetah Handbag 3 (Large)

This template is amazing.  It comes with all these decorative layers and
more, along with step-by-step, photographed instructions!  It makes it
is easy for every crafter.

Cheetah Handbag 4 (Large)

For the card, I used our NEW stamp set Shop Til You Drop.  This set is a collection images that include a boutique sign, two handbag images, a shopping bag, some shoes and sandals, as well as sentiments, that are perfect for that shopper in all of us!

Woven Bag-sket

5 Thoughts

Hi 😀

Today is the final day of our March release!  It’s our Year in Review.  We get to choose ANY template/cut files/stamps/paper and create something fun!  I chose to use one of our NEW cut files.  I made a Bag-sket for Easter…

Bag-sket woven 1 (Large)

I ran my decorative pieces through my Big Shot and a basket weave embossing folder to give the handle and trim texture.  For the body of the basket, I weaved several colors of 1/4-inch ribbon, then trimmed them to fit the basket.  I did this on the front and back.  The egg tag is in our Spring is Here stamp set.

Bag-sket woven 2 (Large)

This is the back.  I love the texture the woven ribbon gives.

Be sure to check out our entire team’s creations!

Have a wonderful day!!
