My Time Made Easy January Release!!

Happy New Year, my friends!  Today we're showcasing the new January products available at My Time Made EasyLauren made the CUTEST and EASIEST template (yes, I swear...and I know I say that every time, but this template is TRULY the easiest).  It's her unique version of a chinese takeout box, called "So Fortunate".  I decided to make mine a baby gift :] 
For my box, I printed two sheets from my new Fun and Fortune paper pack, double-sided on Neenah cs. 
I made an Asian fan by overlapping and welding the two rosettes from Rosey Posey Rosettes, scoring and hot glueing to a scrap piece of cs cut to the width I wanted my fan.  I used the same pink patterned paper that is on the interior of my box for the fan.  Prior to scoring, I stamped the cherry blossom branch from the So Fortunate stamp set that Catherine designed, in Early Espresso.  I glued raffia ribbon to each side to resemble the handle. 
I added some May Arts lace ribbon layered with some pretty, pink organza ribbon around the base.  I tied off a bow to cover my ends and give the box a sweet, girly feel ♥  I stamped my sentiment on top of the box and kept the rest fairly simple.
I filled my box with a small, travel pack of baby necessities. 
Catherine did a fab job on this stamp set!  The cherry blossoms are gorgeous, and she created the cutest little Asian lady I've ever seen in the form of a stamp!  I had to use her on my card for the JUGS65 sketch that Kathryn is hosting today!  Check her out:

Isn't she the sweetest? 
Here's Kathryn's sketch...easy peasy!

Okay, that's all I have for you today, but swing by tomorrow to see another template from yours truly ♥  I'll be sharing the first one I made for this release...it's cute :]

Be sure to check out the rest of the MTME DT today for a ton of inspiration! 


Last but not least, swing by the JUGS gals for even more goodies ;]  You'll find their links over at the JUGS blog or in my left sidebar
Hope your new year is starting off beautifully and continues to get better.  Thanks for swinging by!!
