Let the August My Time Made Easy Peeks Begin!

 Hello friends!!  Welcome to the first day of peeks for the My Time Made Easy August Release!  I'm so excited to share my projects with you!!

 Introducing ... Grammy's Sewing Kit!

PRECIOUS ... right??!!  LOVE!!!  This template looks intricate and involved, but it couldn't be easier to assemble - one large box and two small boxes - easy peesy!

I used a combination of Buttons 'n Bits and Grammy's Pretty Patterns paper to decorate the outsides of my boxes ... and then added a sweet felt blossom with stitched leaves!!

The smaller boxes cantilever out to reveal the inside of the large box ...

... perfect for holding all kinds of treasures!  For my project I cut four Ribbon Card cut files and wound some pretty pastel organza ribbon around them.  The four card spools fit perfectly inside the large sewing box bottom.

I added some sweet bits and bobs of butterflies and blossoms to the smaller boxes and viola ... the perfect gift for a crafty friend!

I created a matching card to go along with my sewing basket gift using the Spool of Thread cut file - so cute!!   I decorated the front of the card using several images from the Grammy's Sewing Kit Digital Stamp Set as well as the Monogram's Defined Acrylic Stamp Set. 

Some inking around all the edges to create a time-worn look and the addition of some pretty Pomegranate satin ribbon, a paper doilie and a couple more felt blooms, leaves and buttons complete this sweet card!

And there you have it my friends ... a gift pretty enough to give -- or keep!!!  Mine is going to a dear neighbor friend of mine who pet & house sat for us the past couple of days while we took a quick three-day trip down to GA to visit our youngest son.  He is working down there for six months on an internship program for college ... I miss him so much!  My neighbor is a paper crafter/quilter and I am sure she can make use of these craft and sewing supplies and will really appreciate this sewing themed gift set!
