Let's Party ... My Time Made Easy Style!

 Hi everyone ... so happy you popped in today!  Welcome to the official August Release Party for My Time Made Easy!   All of the girls have wonderful projects to share with you today, so let's get started!!

I decided to use some sentiments from the {new} Back to School digital set along with the Secret Surprise  stamp set to create some hang tags for my set of gift cards today!  

I was inspired by this little treasure my hubby treated me to last month while on vacation at Myrtle Beach ...

... this year I got brown large and small Coach bags and last year I got black large and small Coach bags.  What color for next year ... me thinks {PINK}!

Anywhooo, when Lauren asked the teamies to create a set of cards/gift cards for today's projects, I knew right away what I wanted to do!  Re-introducing you to ...  the Purse-onality Pretty Cut File!!

TOO CA-UTE, right??!!??

For those of you like me who love to give gift cards, this Pretty Cut File is a 'must have'!!  I cut out three sets of purses and decorative layers in less than five minutes using my Cricut, but you can just as easily use the PDF version with a pair of scissors to achieve the exact same look -- use an oval punch for the handle!

I used a die from Spellbinders to add 'decorative lining' to the inside of my purses -- the pretty papers are from the Dainty Damask and Dotted Stripes collections.  I stamped the 'C' onto the purse fronts using a stamp from my stash.

The slot is the perfect size to hold any gift card - brilliant!

The fronts of the purses are decorated with silver gromets and brads ... just like the real thing.  The 'Coach' was stamped using silver ink!

Simply adorable ... aren't they??!!??  I love how they turned out.  I'll be making {lots} more of these for sure ... they'll make great gift enclosures for the holidays, birthdays, anniversaries ... any occasion ... any time of the year! I think these will make perfect gifties for my girlfriends filled with a Starbucks Coffee gift card ... or maybe a gift card to our LLS!!

You won't want to miss what the other girls' have created for your inspiration today:
