A Little Imagination, Please...

Good Morning - and welcome to my first peek for the My Time Made Easy Release!!  Today, I get to show you the new Puckered Up Pretty Packaging template.

I think pillow boxes must be one of the most widely used of all handmade boxes, and Lauren has just made it even better.  You can stand this box up, and fit some larger items in, that a regular pillow box with those skinny ends won't allow you to.

I love for my house to smell good...I think everyone does, but I fall for almost every new home freshener out there, lol.  Have you seen these??
These are one of the latest and greatest items from Renuzit, called Crystal Elements.  You choose the container you put them in.  Now here's why I need your imagination...I had wanted to get out to the store during the week to get some of these, but due to unforseen circumstances (see post below this one), I did not get a chance to get to the store...

Now WHY would I need these??  You see, I made my own cut file based on one of the stamp patterns in the new Puckered Up Pretty Impressions stamp set, and cut it out of the front of my box.  My plan was to put a gussetted cello bag with some of these yummy smelling crystals inside, and the recipient could use it as a decoration!  Cute AND functional!  Doesn't get much better than that, lol.  Take a look:
See that cute little tag??  Yep - that's made with My Time Made Easy new product too!  The stamped circle border is from a new set coming May 1st called Paper Pattern Pieces, and the sentiment is from Sensational Sentiments, which I LOVE by the way ;).

I hope you enjoyed your visit today, be sure to stop by Lauren's blog, as well as Dawn Easton, Geny Cassady, and Stephanie Kraft...they've all got some GREAT goodies to share with you today!!
