My Time Made Easy Peek!

handmade projects

I HAVE OVERCOME!  Yes, it took a while (and a lot of nerve) but our 'critters' seem to be gone from the basement, and I have been able to return to my beloved "Stampland" :).


I did bring some things up from the basement and gave myself a sort of "limited supply challenge", but I'll share those things with you another time.

For today, we've got a peek at some of the new goodies coming your way from My Time Made Easy!


Have you heard of Piggy Paint?  It's a fabulous company, that makes non toxic, all natural nail polish.  It certainly isn't inexpensive, but -- let me tell you a secret...if you are on Facebook, and you "Like" their page, they're always running coupon codes, making the price much more tolerable.


Sorry - moving on... I got some Piggy Paint for my girls - and some for my niece for her birthday that just passed. I obviously needed to package it up in a cute fashion...and Lauren came to my rescue...

Let me introduce you to... The Flapper.

This handy box is a GREAT size for all SORTS of items, and is SUPER easy to assemble, yet gives a real neat and clean presentation, don't you think??

Here's a close up of the front 'flap', if you will...I used a floral image from the new set, Killer Curves on it.

Here is a view of the top -- it's hard to see, but I stamped that same floral image on the yellow circle using versamark, and then stamped my sentiment off center in orange.  The orange frame around the white layer is also from the Killer Curves set.  This will be a great one to add to your stash some basic elements that can be used in a variety of ways!

The patterned paper is a lattice pattern, one of the papers that will be available on July 1.  Since it was not exactly the color I needed for my project, I tweaked it a little bit in Photoshop until I had what I needed.  That's the GREAT thing about digi paper, plus, you NEVER run out of your favorite patterns, lol.

I have one last photo to share with you -- here is the box open, so you can see the contents.  I've put a small nail clipper, toe separator, file, and the 3 bottles of polish, and still plenty of room.  Perhaps I'll add a little chocolate too :).

Thanks so much for stopping by -- if you didn't come here from Lauren's blog, be sure to head there, as well as Katie, Silke, Dawn and Geny, they all have some more peeks at the new goodies for you too!!

Have a great day!!

Fun and super fruity looking! How wonderfully cute this is. Btw, does this mean you have recovered from your ahem, 'visitor' earlier this month? If so kudos to you cause if it were me we'd fill the basement with cement :)
