My Time Made Easy August Release

Standard

Hello, and welcome to the August My Time Made Easy Release.  This month the extremely talented, and lovely owner of MTME, Lauren Meader, has decided to release 10 brand new templates!  WOW!  She has also just announced that WalMart is interested in her products, but she needs as many people as possible to visit her YouTube Channel, watch her video and leave a comment.  This will help the good folks at WalMart decide if there is enough interest out there to carry her line.  So please take a moment and help her out by leaving a favourable comment.

And now it’s time to get down to business.  It’s release day after all, and I have a few things to show you before you hopefully go on to check out the other great new templates on the blog hop.  This one is called Mix’er Up…Mix'er Up Gift BoxThis design was inspired by a drink mixer.  Lauren felt that the size would be perfect to fit those “taller” gifts like pump dispenser body products, soap dispensers, and of course drink mixes.  This template is great to package a variety of gifts that typically won’t fit in other boxes.  Or you could also just pile up the goodies!

To accompany this fabulous box, I created a matching Thank You card using the same digital designer paper (from Preserve It Blueberries and Grapes) and the Sensational Sentiments Digital Image set.Thank You Card

Please take a moment to hop around and enjoy the fantastic creations made by the rest of the team, if you haven’t already, and I’ll be back soon with another great new template to show off.  Happy crafting!

Hi!  Today is My Time Made Easy‘s Year In Review.  That’s when we get to use older templates and products from the store and show them off.  This month, I wanted to share the Wonderful Watering Can template.  It is so darn cute and one of the first templates I bought before becoming a design team member.Wonderful Watering Can

My Time Made Easy – July Release

Standard

Hello again.  Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians out there!  Hope you have plans to celebrate in style.  For today’s release, I am showing you a great little card set I made using the My Time Made Easy Simply Scalloped card and envelope cut file.Scallop Envelope and CardI thought it would be fun to make the envelopes out of vellum so you could see the card through the envelope.  As you can see in the picture, the envelope flap is scalloped.Simply Scalloped card

The front flap of the card is also scalloped along the bottom.  I added a piece of white cardstock to mine to show off the scallop a bit more.Simply Scalloped Card Set

I made a set of cards using the new Petal Prints Digital Paper along with the Just a Little Note Set of 19 Images.  I based the colours on the palette found in the paper pack, but because the image is digital, you could customize it to suit your own needs.

Time now to hop along and see what the other girls made for your viewing pleasure.  Have a funtastic day everyone!

My Time Made Easy In-dipensible Ideas

Standard

Hi gang!  Can you believe it’s the end of June already?  Summer is in full swing and it’s time to show off the new My Time Made Easy template called In-dipensible.

In-dispensible with polish set

I used my box to store some manicure/pedicure products, but you could just as easily fill this with a card gift set, office supplies, recipe cards or your favourite sweet treat.  The cut file is available in PDF, SVG, GSD, DXF and WPC formats and the completed box size is 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 x 2 1/2 to 1 1/4 inches deep (the box angle down at the front).  Wouldn’t this be cute dressed up as a desk for a teacher gift?In-dispensibleMy In-dispensible gift box is decorated using the brand new (and gorgeous) Pretty Petals digital paper pack.  I also used a sentiment and digital image from the new Just A Little Note Set of 19 Images, which I printed onto some acetate for the little window on top.

I hope you can check out what the other ladies have made for you.  Just click on the links below to visit their blogs.  Come back and join me for more My Time Made Easy fun tomorrow!

Girlie Handbags

Standard

Hi all!  My daughter was invited to a going away party for a classmate who is changing schools next year, so we thought it would be nice to give her and her sister a little something to remember us by…HandbagsWhat could be a better gift for two little girls than their very own handbags, complete with all the girlie things that go inside?  The handbag template is from My Time Made Easy and I used paper from the Close To My Heart Dream Pop paper pack.  The little pocket on the front hosts their first initial, and contains a tag with a personal message.Handbags

The front closure strap is held down by a piece of Velcro so they can open their handbags and access their goodies easily.  These are totally adorable, and I’m happy to report they were received with much enthusiasm!

Have a terrific weekend and I’ll be back real soon.  Happy crafting!

MTME Year In Review

Standard

Hi gang!  Well, I’m back again to share one of My Time Made Easy‘s older products for the Year In Review.  This is when I get to choose anything I want from the store and show it off – so fun!  There are so many gorgeous things to choose from, and so many possibilities that it is a difficult decision, but I went with a lovely little gift box called The Flapper.The FlapperThis gift box got it’s name because of the flap closure on the top.  On my sample, I have outlined it with pearls.  The flap ties shut with a ribbon, but you could just as easily add a small piece of Velcro underneath to keep it closed.

Thank You Card  The gorgeous floral paper used on both the card and the box is from the digital paper set called Blooming With Elegance.  This thank you card was super easy to make.  I imported the paper into my photo editing software, resized it to fit an A2 card and added the thank you sentiment from the Sensational Sentiments Digital Stamp Set.  These would be lovely as a set to give a teacher or colleague.

Feel free to visit the other gals on the DT to see more fabulous creations.  You can also visit our MTME Gallery for more inspiration.  Have a spectacular day and happy crafting!

MTME June Release: Home Sweet Home

Standard

Hello and welcome back for the second round of My Time Made Easy‘s June Release.  Today I will be featuring images from 2 great new digital stamp sets called ‘Home Sweet Home’ and ‘There’s No Place Like Home’, as well as, some new digital papers from the ‘Tiny Town’ paper pack.Door card

This welcome card came together in a snap thanks to the wonderful door and wreath images included in the ‘There’s No Place Like Home’ digital stamp set.  All I had to do was resize the door and wreath in my photo editing software and then print them out on cardstock.  The wreath was coloured with Copic markers and cut out with scissors.  I popped it up with dimensional foam on the door.  The background is paper from the Tiny Town digital paper pack, which I printed onto a piece of ivory cardstock.  Voila! I have myself a gorgeous, handmade card for the new neighbours!Tall Gift Box

This tall gift box was cut out using the Wine & Dine cut file, and is perfect for a bottle of wine, balsamic vinegar or specialty olive oil.  I love the Tiny Town paper.  It’s perfect for the occasion!  I embellished the box with a keychain made using the Home Sweet Home digital stamp set and the Unlocked cut file.House Warming Combo

What a great way to impress the new neighbours or friends moving into a new house.  They will be blown away by the thoughtfulness of a stunning handmade gift!  Check out what the other ladies have made by clicking on the links below.  They are all very talented and have a lot of great ideas to share.  I’ll be back June 3rd with another fun project so stay tuned…

MTME May Year In Review – Sizzlin’ Summer Ideas

Standard

Welcome back!  I have the winner of the MTME May Sneak Peek contest!!  Drum roll please…………………….. and the lucky winner is…………. Sue D!!!  Congratulations, Sue.  You get your choice of any one of the templates in the My Time Made Easy shop!  I’ll send you an email with all the details so you can claim your prize.  Thanks to everyone who played along.

So now we move on to our Year In Review.  This is when we get to choose any MTME product and turn it into something completely different (some serious fun to be had here!).  I decided to stick with the BBQ grill template and add a travel theme to it by turning it into a travel trunk.  Check it out…Travel ChestImagine filling this with a bag of trail mix, a travel game, or even a pack of gum and some moisturizing facial wipes for someone travelling on a plane.  Of course, no gift is complete without a card, so I whipped up this little cutie pie using some digital paper from the Sweet & Sour Sweethearts Paper Pack, along with a sentiment from the Sentimental Occasions Digital Images set.

Happy Trails CardThis makes me wish I was boarding a plane for an adventure!  If you have a moment or two, take a cyber trip over to the other girls’ blogs to see what kind of new things they’ve made from something old.  And if you’d like a little more inspiration, you are always welcome to pop by the MTME Design Team Gallery for a peek.  Have a great day everyone and thanks for stopping by!  ~Tracy
