Some exciting changes! and a lil’ GIVEAWAY

Mar 27, 2010 Author: mytime | Filed under: Uncategorized

Well tomorrow begins our official peeks of the April release for My Time made Easy ™ LLC.

I’ve had too many requests/suggestions sent asking for peeks to start early, to NOT do peeks. I honestly thought you all would LOVE the “BUY IT NOW” approach, but you all suggested otherwise! Those not wanting to be teased…..well, you may not want to stop by until the first of the month, then scroll back to view everything. I wouldn’t have changed my approach, had the majority asked I do so. YOU are the customer….so I will listen 😀 It only means even MORE projects than before 😀 How can that be a bad thing?

So for our changes we will do 3 days of peeks, where you will get to see a total of 9 samples before we have our release.

March was an amazing month for My Time Made Easy ™ LLC and I have to say it’s going to keep getting better! I have some really fun stuff in the works for future releases.

 Pretty Packaging © templates that will have you saying “I DEFINITELY NEED THAT!” All our templates have full color, step by step photos with written instructions, so anyone can make them. Seriously, give them a go. You often spend more on a fancy latte drink from a coffee shop! This is a gift/purchase that keeps on giving. You can’t get much for $5 these days, and trust me they are worth it.

On anther note:

We sold out of all 3 sets this month! WOOT! WOOT!

Fanciful Flourishes is now back in stock, as is Bringing Home Baby.

 So Sentimental © set has been sold out (again), but will be back in stock for April 1st! Just in time for our next release.

More exciting news……..

I’d like announce that there is the addition of 4 NEW! Design Team members! That is my big and exciting news.

(Be sure to visit them as each one has a GIVEAWAY!)

I’d love to introduce you to

Dawn Easton-

Geny Cassady 

Lesa Rapp-

 and last but not least Stephanie Kraft-

Check out our Design Team page –>HERE!

I am over the moon to have these very talented women join our team!

Stephanie and Geny are jumping right in for the April release and Dawn and Lesa will both be starting next month as they wrap up some other commitments.

Geny and Dawn are going to be our cardmakers!

We spend much time sharing complete gift packaging, and while that is AWESOME, I think we would all love to see some more cards thrown in the mix! Afterall these stamps are just as good for cards, as they are gift packaging! These two girls are just who we needed for that job. I have worked with both on other design teams and I have long admired each of them. They are wonderful and talented women. I feel they both take excellent photos, and thier use of layering and patterned paper always inspire.

Stephanie and Lisa will join the team for our complete packages! They both bring something unique and fresh to the group, and I cannot wait to see what they do with our products once in hand! I’m sure you will be inspired too. They both do some jaw dropping work and both are so wonderful in every way.

It’s been hard to hold on to those changes!

You all need to know that Kristin is stepping away from the “Designer” responsibilities of the team, and focusing on the digital paper and assisting me with some administrative duties (I can’t believe I already need help!). She will still design at liberty and is very much still a part of the team, just not the countdown stuff etc. 

Now another sad announcement, Catherine has had some family issues arise and she will be leaving the team. She is welcome back when things settle down, but for now she has decided to take what time she does have and focus on her family and when time allows….. stamp design! Catherine and I worked together on a set and template combo that will be releasing sometime soon! She is a wealth of ideas 😀

Catherine and I have discussed some designs she is going to be working on in the future (time willing and at her leisure while she deals with her family issues). While I’m so sad to see us lose her AMAZING talents by contributing her wonderful projects each month, it will be great to work with her in another aspect. So we shall see what the future holds with that new journey.  I’m so excited and proud of all these new additions. Please be sure you stop by thier blogs to welcome them to the team!!

I really look forward to our peeks starting tomorrow!!! I think you will be really excited too.

Hi everyone!
It’s *almost* April! Can you believe it? As the next month is upon us that means I start sharing some fun stuff with you.

Well if you weren’t aware I am a monthly template sponsor over at the Just Us Girls Challenge Blog. It is now time for another challenge!



So this month we have another template challenge —>CLICK HERE for details. Someone will get a coupon for a FREE template just for playing along!! So make sure you check it out.

All the JUGS girls are peeking  a NEW! Release template called Slip Cover ©!! (So I’m letting you all in on an extra EARLY peek :D)

The official My Time Made Easy ™ LLC release peeks begin Monday (our actual release date is April 1st), and I have a special announcement tomorrow about what is to come! Now  as I said above TODAY I’m “slipping” in an extra EARLY peek for you of one of our NEWEST template: Slip Cover ©


Looking for the perfect holder to SLIP your creations in to?

Well  this is the template for you! This will come together in minutes, and is sure to please.


Below: This is the same template, in the undecorated state. 


The sleek curvy “cover” just “slips“on over the base.


Both pieces can be utilized alone as well. You can also design the box to be presented vertically or horizontally.

The base of this has a fun “tuck in” feature, so adhesive is optional.


This box can hold your A2 sized cards/envelopes (perfectly) and so much more! We all need that “go to” template for our cards, or presenting other gifts, with little time or effort!

All you need to decide is what YOU want to slip inside!

Don’t forget you can resize this so the gift ideas are truly endless!


This is the cover removed. SO PRETTY!What a surprise it reveals too.

I loaded this up with body wash, body lotion, and body spray, as well as a eye mask. 


As previously stated the base is perfect enough to also be used on it’s own (as you will see by looking at the JUGS Challenge participants, and more from me later!) 

Now about the stamps…….  


How simply elegant does this look? I used my Fanciful Flourishes © and All A Flutter © on this creation (bfly stamped on GaGa for Gingham © paper)

Yes! you are also getting a peek at something else NEW!  Now the gorgeous flowers you are seeing is yet ANOTHER early peek at one of our newest sets called Petal Perfection © ! This is a smaller set of 8 large images that sells for only $12!  (more on that later!) This set coordinates with a few things in our release this month! 


You will be happy to hear that there is a coordinating Pretty Pieces © Cut File to match (ONLY $2.50!!) so NO tedious cutting out of those flowers (if you have a personal cutting machine). I just cut my flowers, stamped and layered!

Done in no time.  

Supplies: Pretty Packaging © template: Slip Cover ©Pretty Impressions © stamps: Petal Perfection, All A Flutter, Fanciful FlourishesPretty Prinatbles © digi paper: GaGa for Gingham ©Cardstock from Couture Cardstock: OSW, Thistle Stalk, Blessings, Sweet HeartPretty Pieces © Cut File: Petal PerfectionInk: VersamagicRibbon: May ArtsOther: Liquid pearls,  adhesive pearls
