My Time Made Easy: A Year in Review

This  month we get second shot at the old/new thing.  I can't tell you what a pleasure it is to peruse all the goodies offered at My Time Made Easy!   This time for the new part, I used the Com-pleatly template again.  But, this time I only used the large box.  These boxes are quite lovely - easy to put together with a nice finished edge.

I kept the box simple:  pretty papers and a rich chocolate ribbon.  The inside gift I designed for a dear friend who loves things to do with birds. 

The straight and scalloped hearts are cut using the Flag 'em Down cut file.  The papers are from the Dainty Damask set.  Aren't they pretty? 

 I made the rosettes using the Border Builders Open Scallop Cut File

That sweet little bird with the glittered beak is part of A Little Birdie Cut File.  All of those make up the "old" part of my banner.

How about the pretty rolled blooms?  Those are new.  And wonderful - they can be cut just the size I need!  I cut the letters and made the little banner using a trufont called angel.  It's so hard to get a good picture of an entire banner, but here goes:

Oh, there are a lot of wonderful projects to look at today:
