Perfect Peek Day #3

Mar 30, 2010 Author: mytime | Filed under: Uncategorized

I cannot believe we can count down the HOURS to the My Time Made Easy ™ LLC Release!

I’m really feeding off the excitement, and if you think what you’ve seen so far is great, just think we have 9 more days worth of projects to share! Now you all get an idea of why I “disappear” for some time in between releases! There is quite a LONG list for what I do!! I have to admit I THRIVE on every second. I wake up excited to start each day 😀

Its been a great set of peeks so far, and today is NO different.

Today sharing samples using our Just For You © stamp set (available in digital download as well) , and NEW! Slip Cover template are:

  • Stephanie Kraft (this is her first official peek with us so be sure you stop by and give her some love!)
  • Tracey Cuccia
  • Now you *may* have missed the first sample created using this template, but don’t fret, you can find that —>here


    This was the sample used in that post.

    Now in that post I stated that both pieces to this template are able to be used on their OWN!

    Let me share an example of what I mean……

    Wishing You Well


    This gift package is a “get well” themed idea I had using *only* the base for the Slip Cover ©! As stated before, while this is the PERFECT card box, it really can be used for so much more (as can ALL my templates!). There are no limits to your own creative liberty!

    You can put cocoa, coffee, tea, Biscotti, Cup O’Soup packets, tissues, cough drops, or whatever else you want to dream up!

    I mentioned in another post that both pieces are so pretty, they can act as separate templates, so here is my example!


    I simply printed the Pretty Printables © Fresh Flowers © digital paper (in the pink) onto my textured Blushing cardstock. It made for a STUNNING design. Then (before I had it cut out) I printed my Blushing dots from the Lovely Dots © collection on the other side! Now both sides of my template look amazing (inside & out). It is little details like that, that usually make a world of difference!


    Don’t you LOVE that tea pot? OH! I so love it. I stamped it in a berry ink, and added my little flourish from the  So Sentimental Set. This made a decorative tea pot in seconds!! I cut it out and layered it onto my tag. NOTE: For the handle, use a HOLE punch in there! Easy Peasy!!!


    ALSO: With the option of having the Just For You © stamp set in digital format as well, you can make it larger and do all sorts of fun stuff (as you will see :D)

    Now for the tag, I used the Tag You’re It © cut file (shrunken to about 1.5 inches wide). I layered that with the Blushing tag, and a scrap piece of that same  Fresh Flowers © patterned paper  only printed on white(from another project). I stamped the sentiment in a berry ink. Don’t worry, there is a “time for tea” sentiment too (you will see that soon enough!).

    Now the bag !


    This is just a store bought gusset bad. Using White StazOn……I stamped my tea pot, and the large and small flower from the set that matched my paper, onto the bag, and used my Pebbles Inc pastels (they are shimmery) to add the pop of color!! Now you have a customized bag in minutes (to match! LOVE IT!!)

    I hope you can see the details on there!

    Notice that open scallop border? That is one of our NEW! Open Scallop Border Builder Cut Files!!! There are 6 various borders this month!

    Now you can make these pretty strips for ANY project! Make it as long or as wide as you like, perfect every-time.


    Now for the tag at the bottom….

    I really wanted to add this larger sentiment to the box! So I stamped it first, onto my cardstock, then just used a Stampin Up! Oval punch.

    It was PERFECTION!
