My Time Made Easy Release!!

I'm so excited to share the announcement that My Time Made Easy TM LLC had it's first official release last night!!  Lauren is offering a full line of coordinating products to make your gift giving EASY and versatile!  You HAVE to check out the adorable stamps she created that are soooo HER!  The stamp line, Pretty Impressions, is offering two sets this month: All A Flutter and All A Flutter Sentiments! These sets are all Lauren!  If you know anything about her, you KNOW how much she loves butterflies...this set is all about whimsical, versatile butterflies and amazing sentiments like you've never seen before!  Seriously, the sentiments are poetic and meaningful and LONG which I love!!  You can do so much with the lengthier sentiments when it comes to making them the focal point of a project.  I'm so happy to be working with these and can't wait to put them to use on all of the projects floating around my mind!

As most of you know, Lauren is also the template queen!  She always comes up with amazing, functional templates and this month is no exception!  She is offering the Shutt-erfly and All A Flutter templates from her Pretty Packaging line for only $5 at My Time Made Easy TM LLC!! 

Remember that everything coordinates over at her store, so of course we have a few extras to offer as well ;]  This month we are selling two full sets of Pretty Printables digital paper that complement her Pretty Packaging and her Pretty Impressions perfectly!  We used a unique color combination of Red clay, Pink, Brown, and White.  Not a typical palette by any means, but very striking and pretty!!  You have to check out our Fluttering-by and Shutt-erfly digi paper packs.  They are sure to wow you!!

We are also proud to offer a 100% Lauren, signature line of digital patterned paper called Color Me Pretty!  This paper is designed in black and white patterns and opens up a massive array of possibilities!  You can print the paper on white cs and color the patterns by hand, you can print on colored cs of your choice, you can print over another piece of patterned paper to create your very own design, etc etc etc....the list is endless!  Be sure to check out this month's pack - Flutters and Flowers!  It coordinates beautifully with all of the products being released this month!

Last but certainly not least, we are also offering Cut File Accents in our Pretty Pieces line that offers a sampling of cut files that complement the release this month!  Remember the daisy I shared yesterday?!  Well, that is one of the cut files you can purchase this month along with her butterfly cut files and some pretty leaves she created.  I for one normally want my butterfly cut out and now I can have my Cricut do it for me!  I just stamp on it afterward or cut it on patterned paper for a cool effect. 

Which leads me to my projects for today (finally!! LOL).  The first utilizes the All A Flutter template, All A Flutter and All A Flutter Pretty Impressions stamp sets, and the Fluttering-by and Shutt-erfly Pretty Printables digital paper collections.  I just LOVE this plaid with the multi colored polka dots (you'll see the dots in my second picture below)!  I think it gives a very "preppy" look...which is what I was going for ;]

I used the multi colored dots paper for the box of the template and the reverse side of my bookmark. 

I used a SU punch to create the top and bottom frame for my sentiment. I stamped the pink butterfly on our pink definition paper. Isn't it cute?! Oh and check out my antennaes...that is a floral spray from the wedding aisle at Michaels ;] Clever ehh? Ha ha This box fits the travel size lotions and sprays from Bath and Body Works perfectly! This project will be going to a teenage girl so I thought lotions and sprays...and a bookmark since she loves to read :)

I took the solid butterfly stamp and stamped off in our three colors, climbing up the side of my bookmark.  Added a pretty sentiment and a die cut layered butterfly (you can see I made the brown base a little bit larger than the plaid butterfly), tied it off with ribbon and that was all there was to it!  This was really a clean and simple project, but I LOVE the end result!  That preppy, girly look is totally what I was going for.

Now, onto my second project for today.  For this project I used...  My intent was to show you that you don't have to stick to our color palette with this collection.  You can extract one color of choice, pair it with your own complementary colors and make a totaly unique project!  I chose to focus on the pink from our collection and paired it with Kraft and White. 

Let me tell you, this template is HUGE!  It can hold a ton of stuff...seriously.  I chose to have it hold a candle that complements my colors :)  Doesn't the polka dot paper go beautifully with the definition paper?!  Two of my absolute FAVES this month!  I envision using it over and over again for a long time to come!  The definition paper uses the signature font you see at the My Time Made Easy's so whimsical and fun!  LOVE it!!  For my box, I added a pretty, vintage looking flower to the top using my Nestabilities Blossom die.

I also added a sentiment on one side of the box and a butterfly on the other (where I stamped the outline of my butterfly on the definition paper and cut it out and layered a kraft colored butterfly underneath).  OH and that GORGEOUS ribbon you see is actually Martha Stewart Craft Seam Binding.  LOVE LOVE LOVE that stuff!  So much so that I went to Michaels during one of their holiday sales and bought all the colors they offered :) 

Last but certainly not least is the cute little card that inspired my Shutt-erfly template :O)  I don't do shabby chic, but I think this kind of has the feel of it!   

I can't wait to share my other projects using these templates!  There are just so many possibilities!!!  You won't be disappointed ;]  Be sure to check out the storefront and all of the new products, and also, swing by the team's blogs to see the jaw dropping projects they put together!  They seriously have me in awe of their talent!

If you create anything using the paper and/or the cut files, I would love to see your work!  Please feel free to email me anytime and share ;]

Thanks for stopping by!

Ooooh hoooo Kristin baby! You hit this one out of the park - I LOVE that plaid paper - ALMOST used it myself - and the bookmark - TO DIE FOR adorable. Your second set is just scrumptious with the colors you chose - LOVE that Butterfly Definition paper. I love how you added a butterfly on one side and sentiment on the other - very clever! (making mental note to self)

I just love how much you've put into these amazing papers Kristin - It takes me FOREVER to make up my mind which combos to use - that's the tough part LOL

HUGE congratulations for your part in making all of the My Time Made Easy opening a HUGE success. You are amazing my friend.

OH MY GOSH! I love your completed projects! The Plaid is so pretty and vibrant.

The book mark is STUNNING! Id love to see you make a card, and Shutt-erfly just like it! Make the butterflies go up the side!
The paper flowers look so elegant too. Love the combo with Kraft.
You are amazing!
