Oh my gosh! I’m so excited that I don’t even know WHERE to begin! If I were talking I would be in FAST FORWARD mode.

Let me start by saying, you WILL want to read every word ūüėÄ I have much to share and you most likely won’t want to miss all the goodness. I can tell you it took like 3+ hours just to type it all up!

September 1st is the My Time Made Easy ‚ĄĘ LLC Release!

You will want to grab a cup of something, get comfy in front of your screen-preferably a quiet area, relax, and read!

This month is going to be the start of an amazing next couple of month’s, all designed to enhance all your holiday gift giving! The best part is these gift items can be made, or given ANY time of year, for ALL ages. Male, female, the young and old.

I *will* be offering some holiday themed goodness begining with our Oct 1st release. These will be some amazing themed stamp sets that coordinate with our packaging templates for the ultimate gift giving experience.

Let me get started sharing all the AMAZING news and NEW! Products for September!

 We are starting early because this month we have SO MUCH to share! Now many of you took guesses at WHAT this release was ALL about, and MANY of you were spot on!

Let start with the NEW! Announcements!

I’m excited to announce that with the release on the 1st, we will FINALLY have our GALLERY open! That means you will EASILY be able to view any/all projects made by myself and the design team, in one place, right¬†at your fingertips! To say I’m over the moon is an understatement.

As we reveal our projects for the release, we will each upload our photos to the NEW! Gallery. Because we fill out all our MTME supplies in our keywords, you can easily navigate the site and find any/all samples made with a particular product from our store!

As you may know this is a very exciting and much anticipated addition to the store! Lot’s of time, effort and research went into this addition. While it took some time to pull together, we needed it to be done¬†RIGHT!¬† A HUGE thank you to my web girl Sara for getting all this together. She is like my other right hand ūüėÄ

This month’s release will go LIVE on the 1st-with projects being added to the gallery¬†daily during our project release peek week (say that 5 times fast). ALL of the projects myself, and the current design team have created over the last 10 months will get loaded fully by Oct. 1st. We’ve made a ton of projects, and I’d like to give my team some time to get their gallery loaded, so keep checking back ūüėÄ

Now for all of you customers wanting to upload, we aren’t ready for that just yet. We want to ensure we have all our bases covered with the design team loading,¬†before opening the gallery up to everyone who wants to load their latest and greatest MTME projects!!

So stay tuned for the announcement¬†when the¬†customer portion of the gallery¬†is ready. It won’t be too long from now.

We will soon also have a blog, and forum, so stay tuned! Another thing long in the making, but I want to ensure we do things RIGHT.

MORE changes!

Geny Cassidy¬†is no longer with MTME, and sadly this will be¬†Dawn Easton‘s last month with us.¬†While¬†we are sad to see them go we are excited to bring on two new very talented ladies:

Tammy Hershberger  and Lisa Kind !!! Make sure you send them a warm welcome! I ahve worked with both these talented women on other teams and have long enjoyed and admired thier talent.

Next announcement: WE WANT YOU!

I have had SO many requests for this particular stamp/template/paper combination that I could hardly wait to share it all with you.

Can you imagine all the possibilities this one Shop Around & Accessories Mega Template can hold?

This is sure to dress up any gift giving occasion. It is a gift within itself!

top-wel1.jpg

If you’ve been “shopping around” for the perfect gift box, for ANY time of year, then this is the box for you! Imagine all the little houses and shops you can create for yourself, or to dress up any gift, that can later be displayed in the receivers home, or re-gifted with style!

As stated above, over the next few months we are releasing stamp set additions that make this Shop Around & Accessories template AMAZING!

Here is the angled roof view.

roofsam.JPG

The printable roof pattern is just the perfect addition to this template, but the possibilities DON’T stop there.

As you will soon see the Home Improvement stamp set kicks the possibilities up a few notches! (Details on this set below)

Whether you are going to be creating a “themed” shop, or a house, the stamps combined with the¬†size and style of this template is going to blow you away.

My box is a Welcome gift!

drclose.JPG

This is the door image, which was cut out using the coordinating Home Improvement Pretty Pieces Cut File.

You can also see the stairs, which have a wood-grain pattern stamped on them!! The wood grain stamp image fits perfectly on each step. They are just so cute and FULL of possibilities.

stairs-detail.JPG

The mailbox is a super fun addition that can be great for this template, or hold its own on *any* card or tag! I cut the front of mine, and put it on a dimensional. I love the effect of anything being popped up, as much as possible!

Now for the side view!

housewelside.JPG

As you can see I stamped 2 of the window images from the  Home Improvement  stamp set, to fit on the side of the house.

I stamped the grass image to go around the entire base of my house. It is easiest if you stamp the bottom prior to fully assembling your template.

wnd.JPG

I used the Home Improvement Pretty Pieces Cut File for my windows, which are stamped in a brown ink. I then re-stamped, and trimmed out my flower box part of the window, to create a 3 D effect. I used some pretty Flower Soft for my flower boxes! EASY PEASY.

back-house5.JPG

As we make our way to the back of the house you can see the picture window that makes this template the perfect shop window, or large picture window! There ARE images that fill the shop window too (details below!).

backsiewehus.JPG

On this project I stamped my window, colored my trim to match my house, and stamped by designer curtains in red. Both the designer curtain and solid curtain can layer on each-other for so many great color/pattern combinations!  Use the curtains on either side of the windows, OR use it along the TOP for the look of a valance! Gotta love versatility.

flwwindet.JPG

I used the window box image for the front of my window. Now this stamp image also fits our 3¬†dimensional window box¬†in the Shop Around Accessories template!¬†¬†“In” my window box I stamped my grass, and the flowers, cutting them out to be 3 dimensional. There is some fun flock on them too, for some added texture!

bcksdhosewel.JPG

As we round to the other side of the house, I stamped my gate. Another great image for a quick, cute card sample.

You can also see the randomly stamped brick pattern on the chimney. Its a great whimsical touch! This¬† Home Improvement¬†set has several design building possibilities, like the brick, wood grain, and stone….to name a¬†few!

chimneyhse.JPG

¬†I love the “attic” style windows on either side of the house. My grandmother had these in her house.

One of the *best* additions to the set is our Construction Materials Pretty Printables Paper! I did not have it while creating this first Shop Around & Accessories version, but you will get to see WHY it is a must have when you see what myself and the design team has done using these papers to EASILY make an even MORE realistic house/shop!

tsllhouxed.JPG

This is a 3 dimensional house/shop like box, perfect for year round gift giving! So many things you can put in there. Even if left empty is is a great decoration for all year long.

lastphotolhis.JPG

Not only is the gift box fun, but even more importantly it is FUNCTIONAL! With it being an amazing size you can put a wide variety of gifts in here, or use it in your home to HIDE items you may not want seen on a daily basis, like your remote control! LOL!

But best of all it can hold some amazing treats……

pretzelsticks.JPG

Hide any gift in here and it is certain to steal the show!

Here I have some pre-packaged chocolate covered Pretzel Sticks! Due to the roof angle I was able to easily fit them in here. Imagine bringing this to a Cookie Swap?! You’d be the talk of the party-and I don’t mean your cookie recipe.

You can use ANY of the Shop Around Accessories ¬© (which are ALL included with ONE purchase!) ¬†to further enhance your “shop building” possibilities, as you’ve seen a few ideas today. There are MANY more possibilities to be shared. We have many SHOP building options that will just have your creative brain spinning with gift giving ideas, wait until you see.
