Goodbye Akysha! I miss you tons and Quasimodo is lost without you to annoy him. Sigh..... I will miss tripping over you on the stairs where you so beautifully blended in. I also will miss your meow which you couldn't seem to get out. I giggled the other night thinking of you playing with that little ball last week. It cracked me up how you kept losing it and I had to go find it for you. I will miss you laying under the hutch. :( R.I.P.

Wednesday Challenge ~ Paper Cone

Today I challenged the Blog Team to make paper cones. Thanks to Beate there is a tutorial over at SCS!!! I would love for you to play along and add your link on Mr. Linky. Challenge Blog <-------------- here. I didn't get a chance to use Diane's gorgeous new wedding set last week and decided to play with it before I didn't have a chance. Isn't this set gorgeous? It's called Special day and it's available now over at All That Scraps. :) I kept it simple, but elegant in the design. I think it would be perfect to tuck a small gift in for the bride. The paper is Lauren's gorgeous digi paper from My Time Made Easy. I love this stuff. When you mess something up and need another sheet it is so easy to just print one. Ask me how I know? haa haa It is from Lauren's Darling Dots collection. Be sure to go check it out. Have a great day and enjoy the possibilities.

My Time Made Easy ~ Trendy Tool Tote

The inspiration for this caramel apple kit came from this adorable digital paper. It is from the Snips and Snails © collection. I saw the Trendy Tool Tote© and knew immediately what I wanted to create. This would be the perfect teacher gift or even a fall gift. I love how easy these templates come together. The hard part is deciding how to decorate them. :)

I was so excited to get to use my nested apple die templates to decorate this box. They made decorating it a snap. I got to use more of my yummy Couture card stock as well. The colors are Candied Apple and Lagoon. I also used my new Lunch Box Love Notes © acrylic stamps. These stamps are so fun and there are tons of them to come up with the perfect project. I hope you have enjoyed following me on my new journey with My Time Made Easy. I love this job already. I have had a blast creating these projects for you and can't wait til next month so I can do it all again. Have a great day and enjoy the possibilities.
Other: Memento Tuxedo black ink, Riding Hood red ink, Copic airbrush system, BG15, red polka dot ribbon, Spellbinders nested apple, Spellbinder On The Vine Border Grand, Spellbinders Impressablities Fleur De Lis Pattern, Wizard die cut machine, Cricut expression.

Pucker Up sunflower style

Today I get the pleasure of showing your my take on the new Pucker Up template. How gorgeous is this box? By the time you get to see it, it will already belong to my new daughter-in-law to be. I am giving her birthday gift to her in this box. I can't believe how truly easy these templates are to create. It helps to have a cricut, but you can hand cut them as well.

I recently received my first shipment of Couture Card stock!! I am in love with the texture and color of this stuff. I used Acorn Squash for this project. The sentiment was from the new Sensational Sentiments set, perfect for the look I was going for.

Did you notice the pretty paper that matches the card stock perfectly? This digital paper is from the School Plaid Collection 2. I have to admit I was a little intimidated by digital paper at first. It is so easy and if you run out of what you need you can go print another one quick. I love that feature. You can also use it over and over once you buy it. There are no limits. I am so glad you stopped by to see this beautiful box. Come back tomorrow and I will have another peek for you.


Stamps: Sensational Sentiments

Paper: School Plaid © - Collection 2, Couture Card stock ~ Acorn Squash, SU River Rock
