My Time Made Easy -- Preview Castle in the Clouds

Can you believe it's that time again?  I know, right?!  I am finally getting over the holiday hustle, my pneumonia and my daughter's flu.  Wow, was that a wild ride!  And here we are with another release...and if I say so myself, I am lovin this month!

My project for you today is Castle in the just gotta love the name and, yes, it is way cute!

This is one of my favorites now.  When you take off the lid, you have a fair size box to give a gift in.  I used the paper collection Candy pretty!
Here is a shot of the front.  Don't you love the doors?!  The vines are some ribbon I had on hand and the seam binding is from Paper Sweeties.  I forget what color it is.
The lid of the box has the castle tower on it, so when you lift the lid, the tower comes with!
I used just a little bling and bow with, of course, a heart button for the center.  And there you have it for preview day 1 over at My Time Made Easy.

So I hope you enjoyed this project and please visit the other teamies to see what they have created for you.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

MTME -- Post Release Just A Gift

Well, I messed up!  I was supposed to release this yesterday...oops!  I was sure it was today.  Oh, well, maybe this is a day late, but I certainly hope you think it was worth the wait.
Isn't this too cute.  The template is called Just A Gift.  I love the nice size and it is super easy to put together.  I'm thinking I might just need to make a few more of these!
I made this to look very clean and simple.  The paper is the Buttons-N-Bits paper pack...super cute designs in this paper.
The little tag is the BFF Valentine Tags stamp set.  I also used the Valentine Tags cut file.  The bird is from the BFF Valentine stamp set, and the sentiment is from the BFF Valentine Sentiments stamp set.
Please stop by My Time Made Easy and shop around all the new releases and the gallery for some great ideas.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

MTME -- January Release

Oh, my goodness!  It is that time again.  You know when you make something and you get all giddy when it's done cuz you really enjoyed how it turned out?  Well, that is how I feel about this project.
This is the With All My Heart template.  Can you just imagine getting this for Valentine's Day?!  I just can't wait until I make a few more.  I made this one especially for a friend of my parents who is very special and always thinking of others.  I hope she likes it.
I used the new Valentines paper being released today.  You are going to love these papers!  I added a little pearl bling around the top edge and Stickles around the scallops.
Here is an up-close of my little flower and ribbon nosegay.
Isn't it perfect for a little bit of chocolate yumminess?!  I just love that paper design!

I hope you enjoyed this month's release.  I know I am loving it!  Please visit all the other teamies and the gallery over at My Time Made Easy.
Thanks everyone for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed your visit and please come back again!

MTME -- With Love Preview 1

Hello, everyone!  Oh, my gosh, it feels good to post something.  I have been off the grid for about a month.  I had such high expectations of all my Christmas projects I was going to post...but I came down with a pretty bad cold that turned into pneumonia the day after Christmas!  Bummer, huh?!

Well, I am hopefully on my way to recovery...feel like I've been beaten black and blue, but I survived!  I am still pretty weak, but I am so excited to start creating again...with that, here is my first project of the new year!
Isn't this the cutest?  The template is called Clam-ped shut.  I used the new paper release with the cutest hearts.
I added a ribbon pull flower to the band that wraps around the box, put a cute button and rose with an acrylic wheat flower.
Here is the cute little tag I made with the new stamp set Valentine's Sentiments and Valentine's Tag set.
Here is the little card with a larger tag and using the same stamps with a little bling and ribbon.
Here is a little close up shot of the tag!
And here is the last shot of the box with its band and decorations.  Don't you just love it?

I hope you all enjoyed this post and all the new product you are going to see.  Please visit the other girls to see what they have in store for you!

Well, my New Years resolution this year is to post more and to start adding some You Tube videos.  Let's see how that works out!  Lol!
