    Here is mine:

    Forever Sunshine

    OH! How I love the colors and cheery feeling this gift set has ūüėÄ

    I adore designing packaging to suit my gift, and making it coordinate.

    This month I designed a paper collection called Spring is Here! This collection utilized some images from older sets, to create some NEW! fresh and fun pattern paper!

    I used this paper as the main focus on an older template: What’s Your Angle? ¬©

    Here if the full front view, obscured.

    I loved this box!

    I love the size of it, the unique angles of the box, and how you can use various patterns of paper to show them off ūüėÄ

    Here I used 3 patterns from the Spring is Here! collection, and they are showcased perfectly!

    I used the butterflies on the wide angles, and the stripe pattern on the triangular sides.

    It looks amazing all the way around!

    That is so important when creating anything.

    The finishing details.

    All sides looking nice & professional.

    For the top, I chose to use the floral pattern. I love¬† that pattern ūüėÄ

    To adorn the top I went once again with old, made new stamp sets: Tending The Garden © & All A Flutter ©! The border is the seed packet image from Tending The Garden .

    I stamped the leaf image from Tending The Garden onto the open line image of the butterfly from All A Flutter. I had too much fun combining these sets and paper collection.

    I love pulling out my older stuff and finding new uses. In this economy we need to stretch our purchases and uses for them.

    Sorry this is LATE :C I never posted when I told it to :C GRR!!!!

    I hope you are all enjoying the fabulous gift ideas from the team here at My Time Made Easy ‚ĄĘ LLC.

    Today you will want to visit:

  • Debbie Marcinkiewicz
  • Kathryn Berthiaume
  • Last month we said goodbye to a dear design team member Pam Imholz :C She was with me from the beginnning and she will be greatly missed by myself and the team, but we wish her well on her endevours. Now on our team is the amazingly talented Kathryn Berthiaume, whom I failed to give proper acknowledgement! She’s been a guest on our team before, and is part of our Pretty Pattern Sketch team so I forgot she was NEW! to the MTME team! I feel like she’s been with uis all this time. So my apologies for my oversight of both these amazing women! The last¬†5 months or so I’ve been caring my mom (and kids), so my family life had me in a bit of a tailspin.

    Today I thought I’d share some more card ideas with you using the NEW! Night at the Movies set, and About to Pop! set , in coordination with the NEW! Movie Tickets, Countdown, and Pop Some Fun digital paper, and the Hot Ticket & Caught on Film Cut Files.

    I used all these elements together 2 create 5 different card designs.

    First up my favorite!

    Ticket to Enjoy! 

    I LOVE this card!

    (and need to make a template to match it at some point!)

    It used both the Night at the Movies set, and About to Pop! set in coordination to create the final product.

    The card layout is from the Pretty Pattern Sketch 10

    I used the star patterned paper from the Pop Some Fun paper. I used paper colors to digitally color the tickets, which I created using images from both the Night at the Movies set, and About to Pop! set .

    I used this technique: Using Cut Files with Digital Images with the Hot Ticket © Cut file, to cut out my digitally designed tickets that I created. It was so easy, and look at the results! So cool. The ticket strip from the  About to Pop! set open to be the size you need to use with the Hot Ticket ©  Cut file! You can resize both, if you want to, just ensure you resize BOTH my percentage, not actual measurements.

    Popped Fresh

    Here is another card I did using the popcorn bag from the Night at the Movies set in coordination with the Pop Some Fun digital paper.

    My popcorn bag is 3 D. It looks YUMMY in person.

    ¬†I added some “lights” to the filmstrip pattern paper on the right side, using my markers. Easy Peasy card. A great way to invite people to a movie themed party, or for a celebration of any kind.

    Caught on Film

    Now this card uses the NEW! Caught on Film ¬©¬†Cut File. I love the cut file Kristin designed, and can see this added to cards, bags, tags and especially Scrapbook pages, or frames everywhere! How cute¬†would it be to add your child’s photos inside instead?! LOVE IT!¬†

    I used the images from the Night at the Movies set, and put them into the Caught on Film © Cut File. 

    This card features paper from both the NEW! Movie Tickets, and Countdown digital paper collections.

    Now also using images from Night at the Movies set, and  paper from both the NEW! Movie Tickets, and Countdown digital paper collections are these two cards to follow.

    Date Night

    I love the papers Sara designed in coordination with her set Night at the Movies set. I used both of her collections to create this super simple card. I love letting the paper become the important part of my project details.

    I love customizing the movie clipboard to suit my occasion. It is one of the funnest things I did using this latest release. Having this option for digital images is really too fun.

    The stripe pattern and these tickets are my FAVORITE! They look stellar together.

    Lights, Camera, Action!

    Here I used the same paper combination of paper, but scaled the ticket paper to be smaller. I cut out 2 of the tickets from the paper, to add to my card.

     I hand colored the popcorn bag, but had digitally colored the pop corn flag on the bag first. The camera was printed, punched, and added to a paperclip that I customized.

    Too fun!!!
