My Time Made Easy Peeks - Day Two and a Tea Party!!

Well, from the comments I received, it sounds like the Fancy a Cuppa? and To Go! templates are a BIG HIT!!  I'm so tickled that you enjoyed my pretty in pink 'Got Smores' gift design :)  It was so much fun to make!!!  I'd love to see the projects that you make with these sweet templates ... leave me a comment!

Today is day #2 of the sneak peeks from My Time Made Easy and Lauren did not disappoint with this next template ... oh my shabby goodness - YUM!  I'm super excited to show you what I made and tell you all about it ... let's go!

I'm pleased to introduce you to the Grab a Cup template!  Isn't it a-mazing!!!  I'm a HUGE tea/coffee lover -- I collect antique tea cups and pots.  One of my favorite things to do is host and attend tea parties with my girl friends ... my challenge blog is even called The Shabby Tea Room {giggle}!!  I have antique dolls and teddy bears set up in my living and dining rooms having tea parties - so cute :)

This template spoke to my heart and I could hardly wait to cut it out and put it all together into a scrumptious little gift set!  I used a sheet of the new Cafe Text digital paper from the All Steamed Up Collection - super cute!  I embossed the adorable handle and even did some sewing directly on the tea cup -- it worked fabby to help hold the digi papers onto the cardstock due to the bends in the cup!

For the sweet little tag, I used one of the tag images from A Spot of Tea (my all-time favorite set of Lauren's to date!) and the sentiment is stamped using the new Grab a Cup Sentiments set!  I filled this sweet little cup with lots of yummies like tea, sugars, a tea pot cookie cutter and a sweet little tea spoon that I tied the tag onto!  Just precious!

To complete this darling little gift set, I made a coordinating card using the Fancy a Cuppa?, Fancy a Cuppa? Add on Set, Grab a Cup and Grab a Cup Sentiments stamp sets!  More embossing to pick up the embossed handle on the cup and some gorgeous lace with irridescent sequins -- to make the cream and sugar containers look like they are sitting oh so pretty atop lace-lined shelves waiting for a tea party!

A little glitter here, some pearls and satin ribbon there ... and wha-la!  My Tea Party gift set is complete!!

I think I need to make these as favors for my next Tea Party with the girls ... what do you think?? 

This is just the' icing on the cake' for the sets and templates that will be peeked for you this week ... be sure to come back tomorrow for the OFFICIAL RELEASE PARTY!!  Tons of fun, and you'll get to see and order EVERYTHING from the October release ... yippiee :)
