Exciting News to Share!!!

Hello! I hope you're having a great weekend!! I have some very exciting news to share with you... I've been holding it in so long that I feel like I'm just going to burst at the seams...!!! If you've followed along with me for any length of time, you know that I love to create not only cards, but gifts.. and one of my favorite methods of packaging these gifts has been templates created by Lauren Meader! I have followed her journey since she created the My Timeless Templates by Papertrey Ink) and began her own business late last year/early this year -- My Time Made Easy © (MTME)!! Not only does she offer fabulous gift packaging templates (Pretty Packaging ©), but also Acrylic and Digital Stamps (Pretty Impressions ©), Digital paper (Color Me Pretty ©, Pretty Impressions Printables ©, and Pretty Printables ©) and coordinating cut files (Pretty Pieces ©). With the aid of her fabulous products, you can create your own handmade cards, tags, gift packing, etc. in no time at all!!

So... what's the big news?! I am now a member of the My Time Made Easy © (MTME) Design Team!!! Lauren is adding four new team members: Geny CassadyDawn Easton, Lesa Rapp, and myself!! We will be joining the fabulously talented team which includes Lauren, Kristin Bueter, Tracey Cuccia, Katie Cotton, Pam Imholz, and Mona Pendleton. Kristin's role will change as she will be focusing on digital paper and helping Lauren with some administrative duties.


I am super busy preparing for the April 1 release, but I didn't want to post and not have something to show you. I whipped up this card using a few MTME goodies. The butterfly image is from All a Flutter Sentiments and the background paper is from part of the Pretty Impressions Printables line called Fluttering-by. I started out using Fall-to-Layout 84, but decided that my card is far from Clean & Simple (CAS)!

How about a GIVEAWAY?! Each of us new girls will be giving away a template of your choice! And, Lauren is giving away a free stamp set of your choice! All you need to do is leave a comment here (and visit the other girls, too for a chance to win their giveaway). Winner will be announced on March 30!

Don't forget that peeks for the new release start tomorrow, Monday, March 29!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies ~
Stamps: All a Flutter Sentiments (My Time Made Easy)
