MTME- Preview Day 2 -- Mush-Room House

Hey, there everyone!  Oh, my gosh, if this isn't the most precious of designs, truly.  It is preview time again at My Time Made Easy, and all I can say is "Wow"!!
 Isn't this adorable?!  The bottom is filled with yummy M&Ms, my fav!  I didn't put anything in the top, but it is pretty roomy and could be filled with so many good things.
 Here is a look at the bottom of the template.  Too precious!
 The top of my little house I decorated with some Tea Parlor Nomad's Warm Apple Cider paper pack.  And look at this fantastic label design.  I used the new Fabulous Frames cut file and the Apothecary Labels set.  I am so in love!
 For the flower on top I used some lace ribbon and an acrylic flower and to top it off, a little metal butterfly.  You just lift off the top to get access to the insides.

I hope you enjoyed this post and please stop by the other teamies to see what they came up with.  It is sure to please.

Cutting Cafe -- Hexagons!

Oh, my gosh, did I have fun with this pattern.  It seems everything nowadays is hexagon shaped.  The Cutting Cafe has a wonderful set of hexagon patterns that I am just jumping with joy to share with you.
 Isn't this just the cutest?  I am always looking for a good idea for get well cards and sympathy cards.  I designed this one for a get well card, but I may have to make up one for sympathy as well.  The template is called The Hexagon Shaped card set.
I used a couple callalilly flowers for the center and some seam binding for the bow.  I used pop dots for the center frame...should have probably used thicker ones to make it stand out more.
So that is my card for the week.  Just for fun, I want to show you a card that I started out with, and made a little booboo on.  Soooo I tried to fix it and this is what I came up with.
So as you can see, this one will just have to be repurposed for something... not quite sure what yet.  My suggestion, make sure your stamp is right side up before you stamp.  LOL!

Thank you so much for stopping by and please go to the inspiration post at The Cutting Cafe to see all the ideas that are in store for you.

Cutting Cafe -- Inspiration Time

Hi, everyone!  I have so missed posting and designing this last month.  I'm sorry I have been gone so long, but I had a minor medical and out of the hospital, doctor's appointments, etc.  But that is under control now, hopefully, and I am back in full swing ready to go.

So with that, it is inspiration time over at the Cutting Cafe, and what an appropriate design we were tasked with...Apple Treat Box set and All About School stamp set.  Love these!
Please forgive my photograph.  I am trying to get back into the groove again and was so excited to make this little baby, that I forgot to take the pictures last night.  So these pics are from my Droid phone on my desk!  This is the Apple Treat Box set that is so adorable.
 Here is a closer look.  I used the All About School digital stamp set for the saying.  I made layers of the apple from the template, added a little washi tape, some bling and it is good to go.  

Isn't this just the cutest little set for teachers.  This one is going to my daughter's second grade teacher, Mrs. Stephenson.

Hope you all enjoyed and please check out The Cutting Cafe's website for more inspiration today.
