My Heart's All A Flutter for My Time Made Easy ;]

**Updated!  Edits are in blue font ;]**

Today is my day to preview both the first release at My Time Made Easy™ LLC!  This will be a quick post for me, but I'll try to come back and add deets around lunchtime tomorrow ;]


The first project I'm sharing is an All A Flutter©  template I made into a purse with a young girl in mind.  This purse is all frill and fun with the Maribou I adhered to the wings ♥  Oh, and girly shouts pearls so I used some leftover "berries" from Michaels' Christmas decorations and adhered them to form the body of my fancy butterfly!  Girly also shouts jewelry, so I decided to create some earrings using the All A Flutter © Stamps ;]

Yep...those were made from stamps.  Remember shrinky dinks?!  Well, I've had a stash for over a year that has gone untouched.  I finally decided to use it and I'm so glad I did!  The butterflies turned out so vibrant!!  I stamped the outlined version of the butterfly and colored the outside edge with Copics...and after baking, the hue darkened consideraby which I was thrilled about!  I just couldn't seem to get them dark enough when I was coloring.

I printed the Pretty Printables© Fluttering-by© paper double-sided in the same pattern for the front and back panels, and used a different pattern from Shutt-erfly© for the side panels of the box.

Speaking of...these side panels are designed to "cave" in or form a solid "box".  I chose to score mine and have them cave in to give it a real purse effect.  I attached the double satin ribbon handle using hodgepodge hardware and a brad.  I love how this turned out (it's hard to see in the pic...sorry).

I also created a tag to go with my purse.  I cut the label from my pearl colored Bazzil paper, from one of the tag shapes in the SCAL software for the Cricut.


For my second project, I made a pretty Shutt-erfly© box to house some Reese's Turtles (err...something like that) and  3.5 x 3.5 inspirational card to go with it.  Oh and I must point out that an entire bag of these Reeses minus two individual pieces filled the box!  The size is AWESOME!!!

On the template, you'll see that I added a butterfly to the satin ribbon.  I stamped the image onto Dusty Durango cs and embossed in white.  I used more Pretty Printables© Fluttering-by© and Shutt-erfly© paper from the My Time Made Easy ™ LLC store on the template and the card!!  Isn't is gorgeous?!  I love it!!

For my card, I layered my own hand cut butterfly that I stamped and colored with Copics to the label from the stamp set and adhered glitter to the flutter trails using glue.  Quick and easy but CUTE!  I think so anyway ;]

Okay, like I said, sorry so short, but I MUST hit the hay!  It's sooo late for me!!  That's what I get for trying to do too much...  Be sure to swing by Lauren and Mona's blogs for some AMAZING...JAW DROPPING previews of this release!!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you take advantage of this incredible release at My Time Made Easy ™ LLC...especially before these beautiful stamps are sold out!  You will NOT be disappointed...everything coordinates so perfectly and the stamp quality is seriously top of the line ♥
