My Time Made Easy = Something Sweet!

 Hello sweeties and welcome to my little 'ol blog today!  I'm so happy you stopped by today as I have an adorable sweet treat to share with you that I recently designed for the My Time Made Easy September Release  ...  grab a sip of lemonade, sit back, relax and enjoy peeking :)

Introducing ... Apothecary Jar!!!

A-mazing ... right??!!  Lauren has done it AGAIN!  There is nothing this girlie cannot create!!  I am in {love} with this sweet Apothecary Jar template!  It looks intricate and possibly difficult, but believe me when I tell you that it came together so easily ... cut, glue and assemble!  All the pieces fit together perfectly and in little time I had this amazing jar made out of card stock!!

I used the decorative layers file included with the template to create pretty polka dotted layers to decorate the outside of my jar -- the Darling Dots patterned papers worked perfectly and coordinated with the Apothecary Labels sentiment and label I added to the front of my jar!  To further accent the pretty label images, I cut another label from the Fabulous Frames cut file and adhered it to the back of my label set.

Lauren asked us if we might think of creative uses using this template to package something edible for the holidays ... well, we just came back from family vacation at the beach and I always make a stop to my favorite salt water taffy shop while there.  I thought this fun and cheery gift packaging was perfect to package up some taffy ... holiday or not, yummy and perfect for every gift occasion!!

Every gift needs a gift card, so I created a coordinating 4x4 card using more Darling Dots paper, Apothecary Labels sentiment and the Fabulous Frames cut file. 

And here is my {sweet} treat set ... ready to give to someone special!!!

You won't want to miss one single hop along the way ... the rest of the teamies are showcasing fabulous and creative ways to use the Apothecary Jar and Mush-Room House templates today:

And for even more inspiration, please be sure to stop by the My Time Made Easy DESIGNER'S GALLERY!!

I'll be back again on Monday sharing a cute little something I cooked up using some more new goodness from the My Time Made Easy Shop.  Until then, happy stamping my friends!!
