    Now onto a project that pampers…

    Today I am using the NEW Slip One Over On Me template.

    I love giving something simple and inexpensive just to say I am thinking of you, or sorry you had a bad day. I don’t think every gift has to cost part of an arm of a leg to be thoughtful OR appreciated! That is HOW I got into this business to begin with!

    My project using Slip One Over On Me today shows just that.

    This gift I have 2 packaging options

    a candle

    or a bath bomb!

    The paper I used for this project I made and never released.

    I used the sentiment from Take Time for Petal Perfection © which was printed onto the acetate I added to my window.


    As the name suggests, the lid SLIPS off

    Once the lid is off you have the pretty printed bath bomb.

    You can see the Pamper Yourself sentiments printed onto the window sheet.

    I LOVE doing that. It looks amazing and is very easy to do.

    This is the candle. Always a popular gift, and go great anywhere!

    Come back for more tomorrow as we begin a 10 day marathon of project highlights for each new Pretty Packaging Template we have released. I promise there will be NO shortage of ideas.

    What the Pinspired Challenge Team has created with products from My Time Made Easy ™ LLC? 
    Check it out!!!

    Author: mytime | Filed under: Uncategorized

    To celebrate the near end of the summer, and my 5 years of creating templates, we are having a WONDEROUS release of 10 templates all releasing August 1st!

    With that being said, as we await the release, it is with a very heavy heart that I inform you all that August will be our last “official-scheduled” monthly release.

    The store will NOT be closing down. It will still be up and running, and when I get the time or inspiration I’ll load something new.

    I will get back to crafting for the same reason I started it…For the LOVE of doing it, and the JOY it has brought to so many in my life.

    Never did I think my beginning words to the grand opening of my own business would also end up also being my ending words.

    This entire venture started with a simple goal: Sharing what I love with the world!!

    I began papercrafting in 2004, while pregnant with my third child. I needed something for “me”. Once I inked up that first stamp I fell in LOVE! It has gone from a hobby to a passion. I never would have thought after purchasing my ONE stamp, that it would lead me to where I am today! I felt like I found my niche in the world. I enjoyed being able to create my own cards to match my gifts, or the occasion I was giving them for. Better yet, everyone really enjoyed receiving them! I found a papercrafting community online, and began sharing my creations there. What a thrill to inspire and be inspired by others in the world who shared my passion. I introduced myself to the papercrafting community as “my time”. That is exactly what papercrafting was to me! Something that was all MINE! I wasn’t just a wife, a mom, a nurse, the maid, a cook, taxi driver….or any of the other “hats” I wore daily. It was something I did solely for myself. My sanity. In return, others did benefit, knowing I took the time to create something just for them. It also helped me get through tough days. An outlet of sorts.

    I quickly dove into trying my hand at creating gift boxes and bags to match my cards, and present my gifts in. I realized I could dress up the most inexpensive gifts with fancy packaging! A great resource for a one income family! If you think about it, it is the trick of the trade for the marketing industry when selling you their own products!

    Through sharing my passion I was fortunate to work for numerous, amazing stamp companies, where I would create cards and gift items using their images. I was in heaven. As time passed I continued sharing what I love with everyone online. One day my love for creating gift packaging was recognized by Papertrey Ink. This was a company I was creating for at the time. In October 2008 I was able to produce a line of printable templates through their company called My Timeless Templates ©.

    This was a true dream come true for me. Now all the boxes and items I created could be recreated, easily by others! 

    Over time, my dreams expanded and it was time move on, so I could pursue my ultimate dream! That dream was having my own store for all my template creations, with coordinating stamps and papers! I wanted to continue my passion for sharing what I love with the world, and make it easy and affordable, and you know what? I DID!! My Time Made Easy ™ LLC was opened, and started with great success.

    Just as I came to a crossroads then, I am at yet another today. My love for paper crafting turned business has been an amazing adventure, but it is far more involved than anyone could ever image. I no longer have the time to blog, craft for “fun” or do much of anything that doesn’t pertain to the business. Unlike many companies I run much of if myself with the help of my web designer, and the occasional stamp/paper designer.

    It is an amazing accomplishment to turn an opportunity into a full business, but that doesn’t come without a “cost”. The largest cost is time with family and the ability to truly get a day “off”. Then there are people in the industry continuously feeding off your innovations, people stealing your ideas, and undercutting you at every turn. While I would try to work harder, it just isn’t worth the sacrifices.

    Something I have loved and enjoyed for so long has turned into something I HAD to do. It has become a source of anxiety and stress. It has become heart breaking and upsetting, more than rewarding.

    I’m sure this won’t be shocking news. The last few months especially have been quite difficult for me. I am at a point where I have NO CHOICE but to let this go, even though I never really wanted to.

    While the decision of WHEN to end MTME monthly releases came suddenly, the actuality of it has not been that sudden. It has been something I have struggled with for some time. Talk about dream crushing. I love what I do and I believe in it, but there comes a time when you have to realize the dream is bigger than the reality, or no longer worth the scarifices.

    I really cannot tell you how much I have appreciated each of you through my years in business. Many of you have been with me so long in my journey. You are all amazingly talented, and wonderful people! Many of whom I never met, but have become “friends” with, and you’ve supported me along this journey.

    The journey isn’t ending, it is just turning down another path.

    I wouldn’t have had the joy of seeing such amazing works or art made with my templates/designs had I not taken this journey. I have gained and learned so much through the last 5 years, and done things I never thought I could do. I have gained knowledge, experience, and confidence. Most of all I have had interactions with amazing people I never would have otherwise. You’ve all touched my life in your own way and will be cherished by me for many years to come.

    There are no real words to describe everything I feel at a time like this but I hope you know how thankful I am to have had these opportunities, and to each of you for the time and talents you’ve shared with me while using my designs.

    I’m sure I am missing saying something, but I truly type this through tears as the reality of my situation comes to light. I wish I knew what to say, and how to end such a post. At the end of the day, as the saying goes “you have to know when to hold em’ and know when to fold em”. Sadly the time has come for me to fold em.

    All my thanks to all of my customers, whom I truly value your continued support. Your projects you share is what has driven me this far.

    A HUGE thank you to EVERYONE who has ever been part of the My Time Made Easy team! From the past to the present, and everyone in between.

    Thank you again to all whom allowed me to share my vision, and dream with the world!

    As I embark yet again on more life changes, difficult decisions, and attempting to make the right choices for all of it-these quotes speak to me today, and how I need to proceed with life and how it evolves…

    “I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next.
    Delicious Ambiguity.” 
    ― Gilda Radner

    “I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.” 
    ― Douglas Adams, The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul

    “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” 
    ― Dr. Seuss

    “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.” 
    ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

    “After all, tomorrow is another day.” Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O’Hara Butler.

    So, with all that being said I hope you will please stay tuned for our August 1st Release.

    July:Year in Review

    Jul 1, 2013

    It’s time for our monthly Year in Review post!

    This is when the design teams picks any of our older products and creates a NEW project for you to get MORE ideas for items you may already own, or may have yet to notice. There are always so many versatile uses for every template, images, cut files and paper, since the company focus is to show you how all our products can coordinate together, and give you many uses, this is usually a fan favorite.

    So WHO used WHAT?

  • My project today is one I wanted to create for some time, but had yet to get to.

    I had a piece of the Bee Mine © patterned paper that I had previously printed, but yet to use.

    It really re-sparked my idea of creating a bee hive.

    While we DO have a Oh-Bee Hive! © template, when I was assembling the Egg-stra Special © template I thought it would make a super quick and cute Bee Hive as well.

    Isn’t this adorable?!! I was really happy with how it came out.

    I love the colors, and was thinking it would be the perfect packaging for something sweet.

    The scalloped bottom is from the Trendy Turtle ©!

    No need to resize either, because it is a PERFECT fit!

    The bow tied around it keeps the bottom attached to the “hive” top.

    I added an acrylic flower and of course a larger bee to the top.

    When I created my gift set and tags from my preview project on June 30th this month, I knew I could quickly change the colors on the Fine Finish © set, and add the sentiment ” Sweet as can bee” and the resized bee from the Bee-Loved ©set.

    This was so quick and simple.

    You can package up a plethora of gifts in here.

    A girl at work is having a baby boy and I thought the Burt’s Baby Bee products would be great in here!

    As always thank you for stopping by.

    I hope you have a fun, creative and safe Summer!

    See you next time.

    Here is  a set I created using the entire collection of  *NEW* products from our July Release!

    My In Dispensable gift box was made using the Petal Prints Paper collection.

    My label (and 4 cards) was made using the Just a Little Note set, which is a whimsical flourishy image that I ADORE to pieces.

    It was digitally colored, then cut out using the Fine Finish © cut file.

    A little about the set:

    Just a Little Note

    Set of 19 Images $8

    Designed by Lauren Meader

    Sometimes you just need a little note. This set has a plethora of must have sentiments for life’s circumstances. It also features whimsical flourishing bird pattern which is perfect for coloring in using Copic markers, pastels, crayons, pencils, or digitally. You will be able to quickly and easily whip up a card of gift with this set that is sure to be cherished.

    Sentiments include:

    TRUST in his words SURVIVE by his strength LIVE with his grace

    If you can dream it, you can do it

    My Dearest Friend

    Cheerful Wishes

    Hoping better days are on their way!

    In My Thoughts

    Not a day passes that I don’t think of you

    I’m here for you

    Just Because

    You put a song in my heart

    I Believe In You

    O’Happy Day!

    So glad there’s you!

    You Can Do It!

    Good Luck

    Happiest Birthday Wishes

    You deserve all the best a birthday can bring!

    You’re so Wonderful

    The sentiments in this set would be used perfectly on ANY card, and layered onto any project using any of the many Pretty Pieces Cut File labels. Be sure you check out our many amazing Pretty Packaging templates for inexpensive gift ideas too!

    Now for the  details for the (4) cards I created.

    Simply Scalloped $2.50

    Available in PDF, SVG, GSD, DXF, WPC

    This card/envelope set is as named, a simple scalloped card that is just perfect when you want to make something simple, with a little extra flair! The scalloped edge card comes with a coordinating envelope that is sure to stun them, and even includes a simple envelope insert to fancy it up a bit further.

    Isn’t this such a pretty gift set?!

    (Did you notice that I lined the scalloped envelopes too)

    Note: You can use the card horizontally or vertically!

    I used the bird flourish from the *NEW* Just a Little Note set, using the colors from the Petal Prints paper collection to digitally color it in.

    We have some amazing tutorials for using our digital images HERE! But you could use your Copic markers or other favorite medium for coloring.

    I used a variety of sentiments:

    You put a song in my heart

    I’m here for you

    Sp glad there’s you

    My Dearest Friend

    It was fun, quick and easy. The best part is that I have them all saved so I can re-create these again without any more work! Always great in a pinch.

    Completed Project Size:


    5 1/2 Inches Wide

    4 1/4 Inches Tall



    5 3/4 Inch Wide

    4 1/2 Inches Tall

    This card/envelope set was specifically created to coordinate with the In-Dispensable Pretty Packaging Template, but is complete perfection all on its own!

    We have a wide variety of card packaging, so be sure you check out our Pretty Packaging Templates!

    A few card specific holders:


    Tapered Off

    Card Wrapper

    Blue Collar


    Card Cover Up

    Sweet Treats Tote

    That’s a Wrap

    Tricky Treat Tote


    Keep It

    Creative Card Candy

    Slip Cover

    Card Catch All

    Boxed Lunch

    Seriously, how fun is it to have this many amazing options for giving card sets?

    I made my In-dispensable gift box, with 4 cards for the inside, as seen futher above, but needed a card to go with the gift, so I chose to use the Fanciful Flower Card.

    Fanciful Flower Card $1.50

    Available in PDF, SVG, GSD, DXF, WPC

    Completed Project Size:

    5 Inches Wide

    4 3/4 Inches Tall

    This is a pretty flower shaped card with several layers for you to build a beautiful blossom for any occasion! Makes a perfect invitation to any event, shower, a garden party, get well soon, cheer up, thinking of you…you get the idea.

    Now, using the Petal Prints patterned paper as my design inspiration I made my flower card base from a vanilla cardstock.

    I stamped on a sentiment from the All A Flutter Sentiments ©set, and the butterfly from the All A Flutter © 25 set.

    I layered the next flower layer in a pumpkin, then a colonial blue.

    The green bow serves as my “leaves”.

    I love the 3-D details of the flower shaped card.

    I also love that I get the joy of creating gifts for those I care about and they really come together and coordinate so perfectly.

    My company focuses on the “complete package”.

    We work hard to offer coordinating products that are easily interchangeable with previously released products.

    We really enjoy being able to share the ideas and versatility each product holds.

    We offer templates in PDF (printer friendly), SVG, DXF, GSD and WPC, as well as Cut Files, acrylic/digital images and digital paper.

    Thank you for coming to see what’s new for July!

    Tomorrow we all share our Year in Review projects.

    See you again then!

  • Here in New Hampshire it has been RAINING, hot and very muggy! I am looking forward to some well deserved time off with the kids. It had been quite some time since I had any crafty time and I REALLY enjoyed creating this gift set with our latest template called In-Dispensable.

    In-Dispensable $3.99

    (plain version)

    Available in PDF, SVG, GSD, DXF, WPC

    Completed Project Size:

    5 3/4 Inches Wide

    5 3/4 Inches Long

    2 1/2  to  1 1/4 Deep (box angles)

    (All prettied up)

    This is one of those templates that you will definitely find to be “indispensable”!

    Makes a great gift for all ages. Wonderful for teachers, staff, co-workers, friends and family. It will quickly become a favorite for gifts to everyone on your list, all year round. This is the perfect presentation for the desk, or counter. Fill it with homemade cards and gift sets that can be displayed in any room of the house or office.

    I was really inspired by the Spring Abound © paper collection and used it for the starting place for my In-Dispensable box design.

    The base of the box is a smoky gray and the top is a daffodil color.

    The window was created, and layered with acetate. I then added a tag using a label image from the Fine Finish © set.

    It is sized to allow you to organize all our office needs, like cards, office supplies, and contact info. You can use it to package up a variety of gifts, including recipe cards. baking mixes or homemade treats. It is certain that whatever you gather up to put in here, will be appreciated for much time to come, long after its contents are gone.

    This is the back/side view

    Open View

    You can fit your card set both vertically and horizontally.

    There is even an insert that will allow you to separate your card set, and some pens, address labels, stamps or whatever else you choose!

    We have many items that will really dress this project up!

    Since I used an acetate sheet for the oval window, and made a label for the front, to “cover” the back of that when you lift open the lid I layered a label from the Fine Finish © set. I think it looks nice and clean, and professional.

    You cannot have enough ways to present your homemade cards.

    Look at what an amazing presentation this makes!

    Be sure you check out our amazing set of images called  Round Off © as well as the Spring In Bloom ©!

    They coordinate perfectly with this template.

    Now let me share the card details….

    I made 6 different cards in total using the  Spring Abound © paper collection

    Card Sentiments:


    Happy Birthday

    For My Friend

    Because I Care


    Thank You

    Here are some detail photos

    The main image on all is from the Fine Finish © set,.

    I inserted the various sentiments, as listed above, from the set as well,  to quickly and easily giving me 6 cards in a SNAP!

    The butterfly on the tag is from the Spring is Here © set.

    It was so fun and easy, and it was a BIG hit!!

    Thank you to all who have come by to see what’s new!

    Tomorrow I will be using ALL NEW products as we celebrate our monthly Release.

    Come back then for more.

    June:Year in Review

    Jun 1, 2013

    Today as we wrap up our monthly release the design team members are each using our favorite older template, stamps and paper, and use it to create a fun gift set, packaging up something for SPRING!

    Check them all out.

    Sadly this will be Lisa’s last month with us. She will be greatly missed 😀 Please take a moment to wish her well. She has been with MTME for the last 3 years. She is amazing and we wish her all the very best, always.

    This month for my Year in Review project I am sharing a project I had hoped to do LAST month, but hadn’t gotten it done yet, but am super happy that I did get to do for this month, as I am making my end of year teacher gifts. Each child had an idea for what they wanted, so I am getting to work so I’m not flyin’ around last minute this year.

    I chose to use the amazing Great Grillin’ © template, and turn it into a Lunch Box for Alexa’s teacher!

    Yes, this IS the Great Grillin’ © template turned into a lunch box.

    (please note we also have the Boxed Lunch © box as another option)

    How cool did this come out?  We are giving Alex & Ani bracelets this year. I am personally OBSESSED with them, as I have 14 of my own, and I love combining them together to suit whatever is going on in my life, or for whatever is to come my way on a particular day. We do also have the For Keeps ©, which is perfect for jewelry, but since it is a teacher gift I thought the lunch box would be cuter. Alexa is obsessed with hearts, so this was quite fitting to be from her.

    So…I resized the Great Grillin’ © template to 119%, so it would cut on 12 X 12 cardstock, and be larger than the Grill. I cut this from an eggplant cardstock, and layered with the Hearty Stripes ©, a it matched the crayon letter R I also made.

    I made my handle, and my front “latched” by using the pieces from the Boxed Lunch © template. The silver rim tag was made by me with a frosted pastic flower, tag rim. a felt flower, and a button. I love it.

    The tag reads “Packed with Love” and it is from the Lunch Box Love Notes © set. I had my silhouette cut the heart from our BFF Valentine Tags ©, and I embossed it with a polka dot cuttlebug folder.

    Simple, and fun!

    Now for Amber’s teacher…Mrs. Rowley

    This is seriously so cool! We covered a black MDF letter “R” with crayons to give to Amber’s teacher. I was going to have Amber do it, but my OCD kicked in! LOL! She did get to HELP, and it was her idea.

    It can sit upright on the desk or hang on the wall or a door.

    This project was SOOOO fun! Cost under $10 to do too. I can see myself making many more in the next few years.

    We arranged all the crayons first (and yes they had to be upside down :C otherwise the pointy end would be to the left, and that is NOT how I wanted it) and then warmed up my hot glue gun, and my heated hobby blade.

    the crayons were hot glued to the letter R then I trimmed the edges with the heated hobby blade for a smooth, and even finish. Tied on some measuring tape ribbon, added a rosette we made, and then applied some chipboard letters we had.

    Easy peasy!

    Now you have 2 new teacher gift ideas and a new use for the Great Grillin’ © template.

    Come back again next month to see what we have in store for July!

    Now come see what’s new for June!

    Many of you may not know this, but this past winter I went back to school to become a REALTOR ®! That’s right! I am now a licensed REALTOR ® in New Hampshire, and have been working full time helping people accomplish their dreams of buying/selling their homes. It is such a great new carreer path, and I am enjoying every second of it. I am still balancing my business, but if feels great to get out ofthe house, and back into society. I am doing extremely well in my new carreer. I am such a people person and I fully enjoy my new role in helping people in another capacity outside of my first chosen career path of being a nurse.

    We’ve done many house themed things in the past, and because of my new carreer I have ventured back to that. me personally creating gifts for  all those I come in contact with throughout the real estate process .

    This template, and set of images is actualy a few years old! I had delayed release for many reasons, and they weren’t even meant to work together, but they do so well, so I went for it.

    I wanted to make something quick and simple because my crafty time is often seriously limited.

    I used the NEW! There’s No Place Like Home set for this entire gift set.

    This is a stunning set of home building options that are perfect for so many occasions. Make amazing “homemade” cards, tags and gifts in a snap! Our door features a place for you to add a wreath for any season! We have a “sign” with sentiments to fit for all of those home “milestones”. Our window features optional shutters, and several curtain/trim style options as well. We also have a build your own topiary, a trellis, and a rose vine, to name a few details.

    I just printed this from a saffron cardstock, and digitally created my windows, which I made my polka dot curtains, and I added the shutters, which are pulled forward for a 3D look. I used flower-soft in the window boxes.

    The door and wreath were hand cut and colored.

    For the roof I printed the Custom Construction Materials ©onto my chocolate cardstock for the lid/roof.

    I tied on my ribbon, which easily slips off, as a pretty wrap up.

    I topped it off with a pretty paper daisy. I could have also used the flower on the ribbon center is from Bee-Loved © , and cut it using the My Bee Loved © cut file.

    My tag was created using the All Tied Up! © Rectangles. The sentiment is from the There’s No Place Like Home set.

    Sentiments from the set include:

    We’ve Moved

    For Sale



    You’re invited to our home

    A new place to call home

    There’s no place like home

    Love makes a house a home

    Friends are always at home in our hearts.

    Home is where you hang your heart

    This set is perfect for making cards for any holiday or home occasion. You can also find it useful for many of our Pretty Packaging Templates such as Tapered Off, Welcome Home, Shop Around Mega Template, Carry It, and Castle in the Clouds, but you are not limited to those! A little creativity and the possibilities are truly endless.

    Here I used it to package up some YUMMY products from Tastefully Simple (which Debbie Marcinkiewicz happens to sell :D) It is a Strawberry Rhubarb Jam with a Cobbler mix.

    Here is how it all fits inside

    Take the lid off

    Pull up the lid

    It unfolds…and has a tall tapered top (hence the name) so it can fit some taller items)


    What a great gift for a new neighbor, family, friend, or to someone who helps you move and there is truly an endless list of people to gift this to.

    All these possibilites wrapped up into one pretty sweet package.

    Hope you are finding some inspiration from myself and my team of outstanding designers.

    There is much more to come tomorrow, as we have our monthly Year in review, so stay tuned.
