January Guest Designer for My Time Made Easy…..YEAH!!!!

31 Dec

1st of all just let me say:


Now that I got that said, onto my post 🙂

Have you been over to the MY TIME MADE EASY blog nand website?  If not, you are in for a serious treat.  They have the most amazing cut files, digi papers, digi stamps and acrylic stamps.

I have to say they are one of my favorite all time places to go to for inspiration, products and files.

Their cut files(templates) are truly flawless and so much fun to work with.

January 1, 2011 marks the release of their new line called

SO FORTUNATE.  I have had so much fun creating with everything in this line.  I am so happy to show you today what things I have made.

The things that I have used are:


So Fortunate © – Pretty Packaging © Template

So Fortunate © 24 Images – Acyrlic Stamp Set

What’s My Fortune? Cookie © Pretty Pieces © Cut File

Blooming Cherries, Fun and Fortune and Plum Pretties Printables Digital Papers

I have made 2 different sets to show off.

First let’s go with my PINK project!

I wanted to really make my Cherry Blossoms stand out, they were taller than the box they way I did it, so I just made and additional wrap around handle and sewed all around my stamped images to really make them stand out.

She is soo cute.  Can you see that adorable TINY fortune cookie I made.  That was my own creation 🙂

That cookie is so small, a nightmare to do 🙂  But remember that is MINE not My Time Made Easy, because nothing of theirs is a nightmare.

Now, onto my PURPLE project.

I have to show off here a little bit.  You see that fortune cookie hanging off the take out box, that is made from wool.  I used the .pdf of the What’s my fortune cookie cut file and transformed it into a durable wool felt fortune cookie

It can be used over and over again.  I secured it to the handles with a ball chain.

So you notice how the lantern is 3-D?  I stamped the image about 20 times and cut it out to create that thumb sized lantern.

Here you can really see the dimension.

No this is NOT a mauve project, just was hard to get a good shot, it was night time.

This is the inside of the card.

Wouldn’t this be a great gift set to recieve?  The fortune attached to the take out box says, “Chinese takeout is in your future”


This new release from My Time Made Easy  new release wouldn’t be fun without several great ideas, so be sure you visit the team for an amazing BLOG HOP, packed with inspiration for the New Year!

Those are the words from the MY TIME MADE EASY folks!  Have fun on the HOP!!  Try their things, I promise you will not be disappointed!
