Paper Sweeties May RELEASE REWIND!

 Hello crafty friends!  I'm popping in today to share one final project I created for the Paper Sweeties May *new* Stamp Release!  The Sweeties Teamies and I decided to begin something fun and new this month on the final day of our release festivities.  We are sharing projects we have created using previously released sets to continue to show you ways you can use the sets you already own in combination with the brand new sets you are adding to your line up!

For this pretty little pastel holiday card, I used the Beautiful sentiment and frame set along with the Sending Holiday Cheer sentiment set to create a greeting to mail to someone special for the 2013 holiday season!

Paper Sweeties May *new* stamp RELEASE PARTY!

 This little 'sweetie' was created using these stamp sets from Paper Sweeties:


Live Love Grow

I paper pieced Emma's shirt, apron, capri pants and the cloud -- sprinkling glitter on the cloud before adhering it to the card base!  The window, fence and scalloped 'grass' were die cut and attached to the card base.  I stamped Miss Emma and then had fun dressing her in her brand new gardening outfit ... complete with flip flops and watering can!  Emma's garden is growing so well -- you can see she takes very good care of her flowers by watering them daily {giggle}!!  I stamped a sentiment from the Live Love Grow set and hung it on the fence in Emma's garden!


Isn't this card and saying just the 'perfect' thing to send to a very special friend in your life?
Hop on over to the blog to check out the Sweeties Teamies' beautiful inspiration projects for today's May *new* stamp release party ... and while you are there, check out all of the contests and giveaways offered as well!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I'll have one more project to share with you tomorrow, so I hope to see you back again for some more crafty fun!

Hugs!

Hello friends!  Welcome to the final day of project shares for the May *new* release at My Time Made Easy!  Today all the teamies are sharing projects created using some brand new goodies from the shop -- yippiee!

I created a fun little gift box using the *new* Tiny Tucker Tab cut file!


I printed a piece of red and white gingham patterned paper from the *new* Summer Papers collection -- it reminded me of a picnic tablecloth!   This precious little box came together in a snap -- one piece of cardstock, fold, glue and done!  These would make amazing favors for your next party -- how adorable at a children's birthday party filled with candy ... or how about a tea party filled with cookies?


And the tag was created using the Round Off stamp set -- one of my favorites!  My son is graduating from Materials Science Engineering at NCSU next weekend, so I will be giving this little treat box to him (school colors are red, white and black) with money rolled up inside and tied to look like a diploma!!  I couldn't be any more proud of him -- what a fast four years this has been!

Mom made him a cute little graduation card also that you can peek at here!

Be sure to hop on over and check out the goodies created by the rest of the teamies for your inspiration today:


... and don't forget to stop by the My Time Made Easy DESIGNER'S GALLERY for loads more creative eye candy!

It has been my pleasure to share the projects I've created for this month's release with you ... thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my little handmade goodies!  I love hearing your comments!!

Until next time, happy stamping my friends!

Hugs!

Gifts For The Guy -- My Time Made Easy May Release!


 Hello crafty friends!!  Welcome to release day at My Time Made Easy™ LLC!!

Today I'm showcasing a project I recently created using the *new* Great Grillin' template!


What a completely awesome and perfect little gift packaging for all the guys in our lives!  Lauren has done it again ... creating just the right packaging for any special masculine occasion!


I cut the grill pieces from black and silver cardstock and then used some Sensational Staples patterned paper for the doors.  


The grill top opens to reveal a hidden compartment where you can add your gift underneath the grill grate!  I filled my gift with red crinkle filler and then added a Target gift card -- perfect for Father's Day ... and now I have a gift already done for the hubby!!!


The coordinating card was made using another piece of Sensational Staples paper along with the Round Off and Apothecary Labels stamp sets!


Please hop on over and check out the rest of the teamies' projects they have created for today's Release Party:

Be sure to make time to stop by the My Time Made Easy DESIGNER'S GALLERY too for bunches of delicious inspiration from all the shop designers!

I'll be back again tomorrow to share another project I created with *new* goodies from the shop ... see you then!

Hugs!
