Well here we are with day #3 of the My Time Made Easy ™ LLC September Release peeks, and the ideas/samples are just getting started! I have TONS to share, but am pacing myself for what I am sharing daily. We have so many amazing coordinating products coming out that it is hard to hold back and decide what to share and when!

Today you will definitely want to see what both Pam Imholz and Tracey Cuccia have created using the NEW! Pretty Impressions stamp sets that are being released with the NEW!  Shop Around & Accessories Mega Template!!

You will have SO many possibilities for projects using any/all of the NEW! items. We are *only* releasing this template for September because of ALL the amazing possibilities that this ONE template has to offer. I wanted the team and myself to be able to take the time to show you just how amazing each and every creation can be!

We already have 3 ADDITIONAL stamp sets that are going to be released VERY SOON to coordinate with this template! These additions will allow you to easily further maximize the use of your Shop Around & Accessories Mega Template design/gift options.

OK enough of the blah, blah, blahing!!! Let me share a project that went from a simple, idea to reality, and turned out exactly as planned-which we all know that more often than not, usually doesn’t happen!

The colors and concept came from Kristin Bueter, where when we were rolling over this idea (of what we thought impossible), and in the conversation she was trying to get me away from creating the cake image using the colors PINK or RED! LOL! She challenged me to “Tiffany & Co.” like colors, along with the idea of this Shoppe. You know I can’t resist a challenge 😀

This was the result-


To the Happy Couple!

I made this themed shoppe, with the stunning cake image in the window to convey the look of a Wedding Cake in the window of a Bakery! I know I ALWAYS stop and stare when I see cakes in the bakery!

I kept the design of the Shop Around & Accessories Mega Template VERY SIMPLE!! I wanted the FOCUS to be on the window scene, and create something conceivable to give someone at a Wedding or Bridal Shower. The cake is from the On Display 1 set. I love the design of it. Since the cake is a MAIN attraction at Weddings what better Shoppe theme?

When creating this I used a textured cardstock, then scored the lines on the box every 1/2 inch, then brushed it with white craft ink! I think it looks neat. Like a old fashioned baker of sorts.

Once I again I digress….getting a super photo of this was very challenging because of the shadow cast by the awning. In person these stores look so amazing, but getting the photo is a bit problematic.


The cake actually looks like it is sitting on the shelf of a store, and the cake itself is in a ROUNDED 3 dimensional version.

This really is a MUST SEE in person to get the full effect!


To do this I made a box like “room”, that I adhered into the Shop Around template. That way it appears as if you are actually looking INTO a shoppe!! Because it is a enclosed “box/room” it stays safe from harm, not matter what gift you add inside!


I printed rose pattern from the Tea Parlor collection, so it looked like wall paper, and Picket Fence for the counter! That same pattern was used for the stripped awning.


When I made the Shop Around template, I used the Home Improvement Cut File, to create the cut out for my window. I then stamped my window frame from the Home Improvement set, cutting out the center first. I then layered some acetate behind it, which was stamped the with window pane image from the Shoppe Window set. I used a Teal Pallette ink for that, to match my project.


My roof is printed on the Sarah Sand since I wanted a subtle look, and picked up the gray from the satin ribbon which was my biggest starting point. I think its so luxurious and elegant looking!


The sign and coordinating rose are from the NEW! Sign it set. The sentiment is from the So Sentimental set. I love this sentiment, and it really tied in my gift/theme!

Ribbon by May Arts, Prima FlowersQuite honestly I have no one to give this to, so my “prop” is a crystal candle/votive holder from Princess House. Not sure if they are still in business but they were a DSA that I use to constantly purchase crystal any/everything from over a decade ago, pre-kids time. Since having children most of my precious crystal is carefully packed away from clumsy feet, and dirty curious hands 😀 I want my house to be a HOME, where my children could LIVE and grow and not be told “NO! Don’t touch that” constantly. I didn’t get rid of everything when I had children, just some of the stuff I felt I wanted to have once they moved out someday! LOL!

Well that does it for me today!!

Return for even more amazing ideas from myself and the team tomorrow. The first is approaching quickly and you will get to see all the amazing new goodies!

Until then!
