Blooming Wonderful Ideas at My Time Made Easy!

 Welcome to the May Official Release Party at My Time Made Easy!  Today the teamies and I will be sharing projects we have created using the brand new templates, stamps and papers available in the shop NOW!

I'm delighted to introduce you all to:  TREASURED!  

I couldn't wait to make something totally girlie and over the top with this pretty little template box!  I was excited to put my thinking cap on and come up with a sweet inspiration to share with you all that was just a bit 'outside the box'.  I decided to make a jewelry box to sit on top of the dresser in my bedroom ... it'll be perfect to hold my very 'special treasures'!!!

I handmade the flower by using some recycled fabric packaging from a set of new sheets I purchased a few months ago ... I just couldn't bring myself to throw out the fabric sleeve that the sheets came in -- it was just TOO pretty, don't you think??  I hand cut six circles from the fabric and then gathered them and glued them together at the center.  I added a Prima tulle flower for the center and viola - gorgeous recycled bloom in minutes and it only cost pennies!

The flag sentiment was made using the Round Off stamp set ... LOVE!  Here is what the box looks like opened ... the perfect size to hold my big, chunky bracelets and necklaces ... perfect for gift giving too -- you can fit a handmade jar of jam inside -- one of my favorite spring time things to do is make homemade strawberry jam!

And here is my special jewelry keepsake box pictured with a treasured family heirloom -- an antique necklace and earrings that belonged to my grandmother -- one of my favorite pieces of her's!

Please be sure to stop by each of the other teamies' blogs to check out their fabulous inspiration projects today:

... and then be sure to check out the fabulous My Time Made Easy DESIGNER'S GALLERY ... loaded with tons of delicious eye candy to feast upon!
