Group Post: Blooming Wonderful Ideas

Welcome to the May 1st group post for My Time Made Easy!  Three new templates are being released today and all three are being featured by the design team.  Of course, there are gorgeous new papers, cut files and stamps, too!  You can see it all in the new releases area of the store. 

I'm featuring the Treasured template which makes a darling treasure chest.  Yeah, I know, mine doesn't look much like a treasure chest!  That's because it's not!  It's very versatile - as you can see, I created a travel case.  

I added  a handle, (using a method I learned from Lauren several years ago) which are the silver pieces off a small office clip.  I also embossed it to look like leather (at least I think it does).  The addition of some vintage travel stickers and tickets finish off the look. 

It's nice and roomy.  Big enough for some Burt's Bees and there in the back you can see the new Wallet of Wishes cut file peeking out. 

It's a great template:  perfect for pictures, a gift card, little notes....

I'm so glad you came by today to visit.  And visit all the other DT blogs to see their fabulous creations:


  1. Way too cool, Lori! Absolutely love what you have done with this template. Very clever.

  2. Your faux leather travel chest is amazing Lori, love the contents, too. Reminds me of times past!

  3. OMG!Lori when I saw you made this a travel case I was over the moon. It came out beyond amazing!! How creative. I love it.

  4. I should just open your blog from the floor. I end up there everytime anyway.....
    AWE-SOME project Lori :)

  5. WOW, girl -- you knocked this one out of the park with that 'alligator skin' embossing on the trunk! So clever ... great project :)

  6. Oh my goodness. This is wonderful. It really does look amazing my friend..


  7. I really love how you made this into a travel case! The paper is so awesome, and love all the goodies inside!!

  8. It does look like alligator! I'm really impressed that you embossed it; I figured the paper already came that way. I love the Picadilly Circus bus(?) ticket, too. Burt's Bees and a Whole Foods gift card wouldn't be a bad haul!

  9. Hey Lori - I knew you were cute as punch and now I know you are smart as a whip too!! Your project is outstanding - really fabulous!!!!!
    It really does look like leather!!!!
