Chair-ished for MTME

Today I'm showcasing the Chair-ished Template from the December release at My Time Made Easy.  It's a cute, whimsical chair ready to slip a little gift inside.

This would be cute for a hostess gift or even a Valentine gift.  Or a Just Because gift for a friend.  I used the Wood grain paper from the Camp Out set and the polka dot paper from this month's release.  The little hearts were cut using the Flag 'Em Down cut file.  To see all the new release, check out the New Products section in the store.  To see more ideas for the December release, check out these blogs:

Wine and Dine with My Time Made Easy

It's time for the December Release at My Time Made Easy - yes, December!  Can you believe it's here already?  I'm featuring the new Wine and Dine template.  It's actually designed to gift your favorite wine.  I reduced the size a little and created a New Year box that will hold two party crackers.  I used Magical Birthday Numbers and Magic Birthday Wishes to embellish the box.

These would be fun with that glass of wine at midnight or a little earlier (sometimes we don't manage to stay awake that long - sad huh?).


I used several of the new pretty papers on this project.  For the crackers, I simply rolled up the paper into a tube and inserted tissue paper tied on both ends - very easy!

We are showcasing three new templates today.  See all the projects:

Christmas Fun at The Cutting Cafe

It's Christmas Fun time at The Cutting Cafe.  We are all using the cut file Christmas Ornament Fun.

I love the shape of this ornament - it makes a wonderful tag!  I used the nesting ornament portion of the cut file to cut the red background and music ornament pieces.  Be sure to check out The Cutting Cafe Blog for this week's inspiration and special.  I'm sure Regina has got something fun!

Thankful at Craft Us Crazy

Hi!  Hope (if you're in the USA) that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Ours was lovely.  Wonderful family and food - love that pecan pie!

It's time for a new challenge at Craft Us Crazy.  Due to Thanksgiving, we are posting a couple of days late.  The challenge theme for the next two weeks is Give Thanks/Thank You or Inspire Us.
The sponsor is The Cutting Cafe, which is a wonderful place to find all kinds of digital cut files and stamps.  My most current project for The Cutting Cafe can be found here.

I went with the Thankful theme and used this darling vintage image of two stuffed pilgrims.  Be sure to visit the Craft Us Crazy blog for all the details on the prize and for the other DT inspiration. 

Visions of Sugarplums begins December 3rd.  You can read a little bit about it in the above post.  Hope you join us for that.  Thank you for stopping by!

Paper Beads Made Easy at TCC

Regina has made it so easy to create paper beads.   The new Paper Bead Cut file from The Cutting Cafe comes with several different cuts for different paper beads. 

I also used the  new December Daily  1 - 25 Photo Frames on this card.  You don't have to just use them for December Daily - think about birthdays and other holidays, too.  It seems a little early, but I'm already making a few Valentine cards, so this worked out really well!

Although I need a little more practice at rolling, the beads turned out really pretty and cutting them on my Cameo was way easier than cutting the strips myself.  Regina will be posting other projects featuring paper beads on Wednesday at The Cutting Cafe Blog.  Have a great week!

Pilgrim Girl

This sweet little pilgrim makes me smile!  Well, I'm getting my lists together so Dennis and I will be ready to start cooking our Thanksgiving dinner.  We go traditional all the way...turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes, etc...  How about you?  Do you stick to the traditional or do you mix it up?

This card was featured in the first edition of PaperHaus Magazine.  And speaking of PaperHaus, the second edition will be out December 1st. 

To promote the second edition, there will be 12 days of surprises on The PaperHaus Blog beginning Dec. 1st.  I'm going to have a couple of holiday goodies in this edition.  Can't wait to see it!

Snowflake Kisses for The Cutting Cafe

How can you go wrong with a cute box filled with Kisses?  Not possible.    I used the Snowflake Kisses Treat Box file for my box. 

I printed the Hershey Kiss Bottoms in green to match my project. I mean what is a Hershey Kiss without a covered bottom?  Naked?

Regina has a fabulous treat right now:  December Daily Sets are free until November 17th!  That's 6 sets free!  Get all the details here.  She even included the new Days cut frames, which are really cool!   Check out The Cutting Cafe Blog on Wednesday for more projects.  Have a great week!

Favorite Colors at Craft Us Crazy

New challenge time at Craft Us Crazy:  Holiday and/or Favorite Colors.  That ought to make it easy to link up - any holiday or favorite colors!  We've got two sponsors for this challenge:

Prize is two digital images of choice
Prize is a $10.00 gift certificate
The image on this card is MadHatress from Saturated Canary.  I tried to photograph this card several different ways - its a trifold and pretty tall.  Made it a little difficult!
This image is just darling - so fun to color.  Speaking of color, this combination of red and blue/green seems to be a favorite of mine. 

Come link up at Craft us Crazy - I'd love to see your project!

Oldies but Goodies for My Time Made Easy

I absolutely LOVE this little sled template from My Time Made Easy!  I'm going to fill up the brown bag with goodies and then when the goodies are all gone, my friend will still have the very cute sled for decoration.

I used the Hanging Holiday Sled template along with Candy Claus  papers.  The snowman tag is shapes from Homemade Holiday Labels cut file and the darling snowman from Made With Snow digital stamp.

You can find all the new release goodies in the New Products section of the store and more wonderful projects here:

Puppy Dog Tails for My Time Made Easy

Yesterday I showed you my black cat using the Crazy for Candy template.  Today it's the Adorable Dog.

The November Release continues at My Time Made Easy.  I thought this little guy would be perfect for a little boy baby shower.  The bone tag is from the Pawsitively Perfect stamp set.  I generated the sentiment on my computer.

I changed the way this opens and closes a little bit because I wanted to put in a couple of things larger than candy.  It works great!  See the entire November Release in the New Products section of the store.

More inspiration coming your way:
