MTME -- December Release

I am so sorry, everyone for not having my post up.  I am writing this from a friend's house.  We have had a lot of rain at my house and my roof leaked in the one end of my house, so I am still assessing the damage and trying to get my roof covered.  I will post as soon as I can get everything up and running again.  Thank you so much for understanding and be sure to visit the other team members at My Time Made Easy for this month's release!

MTME -- Preview Day 1

Can you believe it is that time of the month again?  Boy, is the time flying by with the holidays coming!  I absolutely love this template for today's project.  I hope you do too!
Don't you love it?  This little gem is called Wine & clever.  I have a friend who absolutely loves sparkling apple cider, and I thought this would be perfect for her!
I used the new Vintage Vineyard Sentiments stamp set for the label...way too cute!
This is how the top many possibilities!  I added a couple pointsettias, a little greenery and, of course, a glittered bell.
I embossed white panels on the side with a snowflake embossing folder.  The only thing you need to do to open the box is untie the ribbons...easy peasy!

I sure enjoyed this project and it was super easy to assemble.  I know you will enjoy it too, so please take a look at the rest of the sneak peeks for a little inspiration!

Cutting Cafe -- Christmas Ornament

It's almost Christmas time!  I have a little something for you all to bring in the spirit of Christmas.
This card reminds me of Thanksgiving Day when my family and I decorated the tree.  I just love looking through all the ornaments while I am putting them on.  Every one has a special meaning to me!
I wouldn't normally mix this angel with this ornament, but I have one almost exactly like it on my tree that was given to me when I brought my daughter home from Guatemala.  It is the most precious gift.  I still can't believe it was seven years ago...God has blessed me in so many ways, but she was truly the best blessing I could ever have dreamed of!!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by and letting me share with you.  Please stop by the Cutting Cafe to see what other little goodies you can find!

MTME -- Year In Review

It's time for our year in review again over at My Time Made Easy.  I just can't believe how fast time has flown this year.  I went out to Wal-mart today and couldn't believe it was time to shop for Christmas again...whew, I'm not ready for that yet!

I decided to make for my project some Christmas tags that I will give to some friends of mine.  I love making them...and receiving them.
I used the new cut file Pop in Pillow for the tag holder...too cute don't you think?  The paper on the pillow box and the background of the tag is called Femmie Flakes and Fuzzies.
Don't you love this tag?  I used the Just Retail Tag cut file for the tag shape.  I used the acrylic stamp set Money Well Spent.  I love this set.
The flower is made from using the round Spellbinder dies to cut the felt, which I then clipped to give it shape.
And here is a final look at the whole set.  Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you found some inspiration in my set!  Have a fantastic weekend!

MTME-- Post Release No Bones About It

Good morning, everyone!  I was having a little difficulty with my camera and I finally had to break down and borrow one so I could get my post up.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful morning.  I am so excited to show you this project.
My daughter loves everything dinosaurs, so when I saw the No Bones About It template with the new Not So Dangerous Dino's stamp set, I was smitten.
I love how this stamp set can be used for both girls and boys.  The triceratop and what my daughter, Kaylee, lovingly calls the "long neck" are her favorite dinosaurs, so I knew I would have to use them on this cute template.
I used a couple stamps from the Pawsitively Sweet stamp set that was released this month to create a little label.  I also used the paper from the Taylors Teeth Nomad Teal Leaf paper set.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek.  Please check out some inspiration by the other DT members and don't forget to stop by My Time Made Easy to do some fun shopping!

P.S.  Some of the girls on the team have been affected by the storm Sandy and a few are under the weather with various ailments.  If you could maybe say a little prayer for them, I'm sure they would really appreciate it.
Again, thanks for stopping by!

MTME -- Release Day Crazy For Candy!

I just have to start off by saying don't you love it when you start out a project with a certain idea of how it is going to look and when it is finished, it is exactly what you hoped for?

Well, you will certainly be very happy with the release this month at My Time Made Easy.  Lauren never ceases to amaze me with her talent.  So without going on and on and on....oops, already did that!
Now, that is just darned cute, if you ask me.  I took the Crazy For Candy template and instead of using the cat and dog cut files, I used the Made of Snow digital stamp.
Is that face not precious?!  I enlarged the stamp and cut out the pieces that I needed.  I cut the face out and burnished ultra fine glitter on it.  I then colored it in with Copics.  I did the same with the bow.
 I used some spray adhesive on the body and used mica flakes to give it the snow look.
My mom is a member of the Emblem Club and they have a Christmas luncheon.  She now wants me to make 50 of these for place settings at the table!  Guess I better get started now, huh!

Thank you so much for stopping by and please visit the other girls to see what they have to show you.  You know it's going to be great!

Cutting Cafe Inspiration Post

Tomorrow is Halloween!  How exciting is that?!  My daughter is so excited to get all dressed up.  She wanted to be a vampire so bad, but we go to our church for Halloween for a carnival and trick-or-treating and they don't allow any monster costumes, so she decided to be a Crayon...yep, that's what I said.  As soon as she gets dressed up, I will post a picture of her.

So on to my post of my project for you today.  I used the Halloween Time stamp set from The Cutting Cafe.
 Nice and creepy, huh?!  I printed out the bats and then put them on sticky paper and added a little fine glitter that I burnished and then colored with my new Spectrum Noir pens.
Same with this "I'm Batty For You".  I just added a little distress ink on the edges.  There's also a little bling on the tree know I can't resist that.
Here is a little closer shot of the bat.  The trees are also colored with the Spectrum Noir pens.
And there you have my project for this week for the Cutting Cafe.  Please stop by their blog for some more inspiration projects.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic and safe Halloween, everyone!

My Time Made Easy -- Crazy For Candy

I am so excited about this month's release at My Time Made Easy.  It is right up my alley.  I am a supreme animal lover, so as you see our peeks, you will know why I have had so much fun with this release!
Isn't this the sweetest little puppy?!  This is the new template called Crazy For Candy.
I used a Kraft cardstock for the body and Mulberry paper for the head and legs.
Look at that face!  I used two different colors mulberry paper, one for the face and one for the ears.  This template comes with a few different designs, a cat face, dog face and generic design.
I had so much fun with this and know you will too.  I have made another one that is super duper cute that I will show you on release day, so make sure you check back on the 1st!
Please stop by the other girls to see what they came up with.  You are sure to enjoy!
On a side note, I hope all of you that are located on the East Coast stay safe and my thoughts and prayers are with you all!

Cutting Cafe -- Tea Bag Holder

Hello, all!  I just got back from the Scrapbook Expo in Ontario, California...sooo much fun!  I am going to do a separate post showing some of the projects I made in classes there and all of the goodies I got, but I will do that toward the end of the week.

For now, I have the cutest little tea bag holder from The Cutting Cafe for this week's inspiration post.  I have fallen in love with it.
Isn't this the sweetest?!  I put together some Prima petals for the flower with a brad in the center.  I cut out a little tag with some baby pearls on the bottom.
I wrapped a ribbon around the packet and tied a bow to keep it closed.  The sentiment is from the Tea Bag sentiment stamp that comes with the sweet!
And here is a peek at the inside.  It contains two tea bags of TAZO tea.  Super easy peasy to put together.
What a sweet little gift for someone special!  I think I will save this for a rainy day when I can pull it out and give it to a friend in need!

Thank you so much for stopping by and having a peek.  Please stop by the Cutting Cafe blog to see what other inspiring ideas the other teamies came up with!

Cutting Cafe Breast Cancer Month

Well, I am back!  I'm so sorry it took me so long to post.  My computer completely crashed and I have been dealing with getting a new one and then transferring my data off the hard drive because goodness knows, I didn't back everything up.  Needless to say, I have a new backup drive ready and waiting!

So enough of that.  Here is my card that I made for Cutting Cafe's Inspiration post this week.  I love the designs she gave us to work with.
Oh, my gosh, isn't that owl adorable?!  I changed the colors to gray and pink in Photoshop and added some buttons for the eyes and cut out an extra heart that I attached with dimensionals with a little glass glitter trim.
Added a couple rhinestones to the "Hooters" and pearl stickles to the ribbon.  The owl is from the Breast Cancer T-shirt printable set.
Added a little glitter mesh bling that I cut and glued to the outside of the card.
And there you have it, a great card for breast cancer awareness.  This little cutie I am sending to my cousin who is a survivor!

I hope you enjoyed this post and please visit Cutting Cafe's blog so you can see what the other girls came up with.

See you all next time!

MTME October Release: Ribbon of Awareness

It is Release time again over at My Time Made Easy and what better way to introduce some of the new products being released with Lauren's new Ribbon of Support collection.

I'm sure everyone has someone that has been touched by cancer in some way or another.  My father had colon cancer and my mother had ovarian cancer.  They have both survived it and in honor of my mother I made my design teal representing the color ribbon that represents ovarian cancer.
 Isn't this the most precious templates you have ever seen?  It is a pretty nice size box.  It has either an oval or heart window.
I tried to use paper as close to teal as I could get.  I put together a felt flower with some acrylic wheat sprays that I colored with Copics markers.
The label is from the new Holiday Label collection that is in the release and the Be Supportive stamp set.  I absolutely love all the stamps that are in this set!
I took this closeup to show you the new paper that is being released this month in the Ribbon of Support package.  In the package, the word "Cancer" is colored pink.  I just changed it to teal in Photoshop...easy peasy!
I truly enjoyed making this project.  It means so much to me to give my mom this special box meant just for her.  She is the world to me and I can't even imagine life without her...I love you mom!

Please everyone, stop by MTME and check out the new products.  You're going to really enjoy what Lauren has in store for you.  Also, check out the teamies.  You know they are gonna have great projects for you.

Thanks for stopping by!

My Time Made Easy Preview -- Gifted

Wow!  Can you believe it's that time again?!  Another month gone by, which means Christmas is right around the corner.

My peek project for you today is the template called Gifted.  I think that pretty much says it all, don't you?
 Don't you love the window?  I made this for my supervisor at work for her birthday.  She loves anything with roses, so I added plenty of those.
 The paper I used is from the new Homemade Holidays paper pack.  There are so many beautiful papers in this pack.  I know you will love them.  The box closes at the top with the bow...too sweet.
The label I made is from the new Homemade Holidays Label cut file and the new stamp sets Homemade Holidays Labels and Sentimentally Yours.  There are so many different stamps in these sets, I think you will really enjoy all of them.

Thank you so much for stopping by for a peak at the new release.  Please stop by the other team members to see what they have for you...hint...they are making different templates!

Cutting Cafe: Welcome Fall

Happy Day, everyone!  This is the best time of the year.  I just love the Fall...then Halloween...Thanksgiving...Christmas.   It is a paper crafter's dream, right?!
My card today is using the Welcome Fall stamp kit from The Cutting Cafe.  There are so many stamps to choose from.  First I used the Pumpkins for Sale design and painted them with glitter paint and cut them out.
Next I used the One Fall Day stamp for the background.  I printed some digital paper and then colored the stamp and printed it on my digital paper.  You can see the pumpkins peeking out the bottom.
I used my Spellbinders Fancy Tags die to cut out the Happy Harvest stamp and colored it with some Wild Honey distress ink.
And voila...there you have a Fall card.  There are so many cute stamps in this set, it will keep you busy to make lots of goodies.  I have another one in store for you that I will post it!

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Please stop by The Cutting Cafe blog for more weekly inspiration!

The Cutting Cafe -- Google Eyes Background

Hey, all!  I am back with a post for the Cutting this weeks' assignment.  We had several choices to work with.  I chose the Google Eyes Background set.
 Don't you love all those eyeballs?!  The set comes with several different sizes in both black and white backgrounds.
 I used the sentiment stamps from this set for the "I See You" banner...tied a little twine around the center and decorated the eyes with some Stickles and there you have it.
I can think of so many ways to use this set.  If I had some dimensional google eyes, I would have pasted them in the center.  I just didn't have time to get some, but will try that next.

I hope you enjoyed this card, and please stop by The Cutting Cafe blog to get some more inspiration from the other team members.
I will "SEE" you next time!!!
