My Time Made Easy February Release!!!

I’m so excited that the My Time Made Easy ™ LLC February release is already here!!! This month Lauren is offering such a cute array of coordinating stamps, templates, cut files and of course, my digital paper :] LOL We chose 12 different colors to use this month which made my job a lot easier when it came to designing the paper!!


Before I get into the paper we’re releasing, I’ll share my template and coordinating card. For today’s release, I used the Happy Mail© template along with the cutie patootie snail from the Pretty Impressions, You’ve Got Mail© stamp set, and the Snail Mail paper from the Pretty Impressions Printables, Cute Critters© digi pack.


This template is sooo roomy…I can think of a dozen uses for it off the top of my head! This box is holding my mini post card, and about a half bag of Reese’s hearts, with plenty of room to spare!

For the flag on my box, I used a corner heart punch to make a window of hearts and adhered white cs between the two flags.

I stamped the envelope from the You’ve Got Mail stamp set and cut it out. I adhered some small hearts that I punched with a mini punch I’ve had for years and attached them to the front of my mailbox using glue dots. I stamped the snail twice, once in Kiwi Kiss and again in Memento Tuxedo black ink. I trimmed the shell, embossed it with clear embossing powder, and adhered it to the green snail.

For my post card, I cut out the decorative rectangle with one of the shapes from my Storybook cartridge on the Cricut. The curved lines and the straight lines were created with stamps from You’ve Got Mail. I cut out the “I” and the “U” on my Cricut and used the outlines as a stencil. I colored them in with a SU! marker and punched a heart from another punch I’ve had for years. I adhered the heart with a dimensional after drawing a white highlight with a gel pen.

Back to a little more info about the digi paper… I created two six-packs for our unique, Pretty Impressions Printables collection. Cute Critters contains cutesy designs, and A Loving Heart contains more sophisticated, elegant designs. I took a sampling of these designs and created our Color Me Pretty collection of customizable black and white digi paper! I also created two packs of coordinating gingham and polka dot digi paper using the twelve colors we selected for this month’s release. Check them out at the My Time Made Easy store. Here’s the price break down and a snapshot of each set:

Cute Critters $4.50

A Loving Heart $4.50

Love Notes $4.50

Ga Ga for Gingham $6

Darling Dots $6

Hope you enjoy my snail mail project and the new digi paper! I would love to hear what you think :]
