So Berry Sweet

Hi Everybody,,, I hope you are all ready for a Exciting New Release at My Time Made Easy and let me tell you there is t a ton of eye candy with the group post Yay!!. First  I would Like to Welcome Our guest designer this month Amy Sheffer ..Welcome Amy:)... Ok lets get started on my projects...


Look at this AMAZING basket This is a new template called Berry Sweet Basket... Isn't it the cutest thing ever!!!... I think I say that A LOT when it comes to Laurens templates... This New template  is Huge (or you can make it small)..   I have cut my basket out using  Sugar and Spice digital paper. This template come with the optional  inserts and I have decided to add them to my basket so you can't see the vase.  This picture really does not do the project justice... When my girls came home from school and seen it they thought it came from the store ..but no I made this and so can you ..it is so simple... I wanted to add some daffodils to match my crochet flower but there were not any so just picked up a mixed bouquet.

Side View of the template... I honestly would say that this is a must have for any gift giving template collections....

I thought I would add a close up of my flower since it did take me awhile to make it... I Used a pattern that I found here. I used crochet cotton and Twinery Twine... It turned out nicely :)

Here is my matching card.  I have used the papers Sugar and Spice, GaGa Gingham and Darling dots to create it. I used 2 different colors of ink to give my image a Multi colored look. The Stamp Sets that I have used are new for this month. The first is called Occasional Labels Stamp set. There is also a matching cut file. The sentiments come from the set called Sentimental Occasions. I know I will be grabbing these sets often. Some of the sentiments included are Happy, Birthday, Anniversary, Easter, Holidays, Hanukkah, 29 in total.  All the products you see will be available tomorrow at MTME. We all will be back tomorrow for another group post that you are not going to want to miss.. If your looking for more inspiration check out the MTME DT Gallery. Thanks for visiting me today.. Be sure to hope around and see the rest of the DT creations..Your not going to want to miss out :)
