My Time Made Easy Official Release Group Post!

Welcome everyone to the OFFICIAL RELEASE PARTY at My Time Made Easy!  I just love the first of the month ... so much fun to share the new goodies from Lauren's shop with you all!  For today's group post projects, Lauren asked the Design Team girls to create a set of four cards and a matching template gift holder, so let's get started peeking at my project, shall we ...

... introducing the Singing Silhouette stamp set!  This is an absolute sweet set -- full of little birdie images and wonderful, useful sentiments!!  Isn't that nest the sweetest thing filled with the little blue baby bird eggs?

I paired my card set with the Cool Romance papers created by Kristin and some Vintage Winter White Shabby Seam Binding from my Etsy Shop!  The edges of all cardstock pieces are inked with Kraft paint.

And used one of the new cut files from this month's release ... Cornice Trimmed Oval -- gorgeous, don't you think?!?  The pretty little bird cage stamped image is hanging from the branch by some pearls and the bird is stamped, cut and poped up with a dimensional.

The little heart here is stamped using the You've Got Mail stamp set and I popped it up with a dimensional and added some glitter - yummy!

I decided to use the Tote-All Package template to hold my sweet little note card set!  I just adore the shape of the flap on this template!!!

I used my Cricut to cut out a bird from the A Little Birdie Cut file and inked the edges with kraft paint to create a time-worn look.  A Prima flower, some inked leaves, buttons, baker's twine, tinsel and more gorgeous note paper from the Cool Romance paper set finish off this sweet little tote!

What a fun gift set ... perfect to give for any occasion! I am absolutely in {love} with these beautiful papers and this delicious stamp set ... so spring-y ... so FUN!

What a fabulous set, Debbie! So totally adorable! I really love that stamp set you showcased. You did an amazing job featuring so many looks from the one set. Those birds are fabulous. Totally smiled at the Chirp-Up sentiment. Love your card holder, too. You really knocked this one out of the ballpark, girl.
Thanks for sharing with us at the Kraft Journal.
