My Time Made Easy Official Release Party!


Yippiee ... it's July 1st and that could only mean one thing here in blog land -- all the {new} for July stamp sets, templates, papers and cut files are NOW AVAILABLE in the My Time Made Easy Shop :)

Today, all the Design Teamies are sharing projects with you using some of the brand new goodies!  I'm tickled to share another new template with you all today ... For Keeps!

This versatile template can be created using one of two options.  I used option #2 today - a square box with slip off cover.  Option #1 makes an adorable display box to highlight a gift of jewelry or something along those lines that would be strung from side to side on the inside of the box with the jewelry peeking out.  Perfect for all of those of you out there who enjoy making jewelry ... now you have just the right template to display your works of art in!  This also would make a great box to give a card in that is embellished with 3-D items and too bumpy to fit into a regular flat envelope!  Such a FUN idea!!

After I cut out all the template pieces in Baja Breeze and Chocolate chip cardstock using my Cricut, I printed a digital label image from the {new} Be Dazzled stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment with a contrasting Old Olive color using the Keep It Organized stamp set!

I made sure that I adhered all the sweet ribbons and embellishments to the Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon that I banded around the box and NOT to the box itself.  This way, the recipient can simply slide the band off of the box to revel the cards (or present) inside without having to destroy the pretty box and embellishments.

I made a set of 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" all occasion cards to fit inside the box ... perfect gift-giving idea!

I printed off four pieces of the absolutely gorgeous new papers available in the shop this month called  Blooming With Elegance ... just beautiful!!!

I stamped four all-occasion sentiments on the tags using the Keep It Organized stamp set.

These cards came together in a snap ... very easy to mass produce if you need a couple gifts in a hurry!

I had my stampy friend, Nicole, in mind when I created this set ... she is smitten with Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip together!!

And there you have it ... an easy peesy gift set!  Very simple, yet oh so elegant and pretty!

Beautiful set, Debbie! Love it! :) If you find that it is taking up too much room in your home, I can surely make room for it over here... :)
