MTME Slip Cover Sneak Peek!!!

Hello everyone! Have you been enjoying the sneak peeks the last couple of days?! My teammates have outdone themselves as usual! Today is the sneak peek day of the My Time Made Easy © Slip Cover © template which will be released tomorrow, April 1, along with a bunch of other goodies! Be sure to visit Lauren and Tracey to see what they are peeking today.. whatever it is, it is sure to be fabulous!!

My gift ensemble is for my Mom. She will be celebrating her birthday in just a couple of weeks, so I put this together for her. I made two boxes and a coordinating card. In addition to using the Slip Cover © template, I am using a new stamp set that will also be released tomorrow. It is called Just For You ©, and it is a wonderful everyday set that you will be able to use again and again! For all of these creations, I used Couture Cardstock in Oat and Silent Night. The patterned paper is one of our new digi releases created by Kristin! This one is called Fresh Fronds - Coral and it is part of the Fresh Flowers Collection.

The larger of the two boxes (above) will hold standard A2 sized cards (I would show them to you, but I don't have them made yet.. :)). My plan is to make some relatively simple cards that can be mailed with a single stamp. I stamped and colored the wheelbarrow of flowers and above it are the words "Just a little something...". 

The smaller box (below) is 80% smaller than the other. I used my Cricut Expression and SCAL software to cut them both out.. very simple and quick! For the main image/sentiment on this one, I stamped the circle that says "Just For You!" and stamped a little butterfly twice. I cut the second one and popped it on top of the first one. This set is full of little sentiments and images that can easily be cut out with punches or dies.

I made the smaller box to hold a little address book or notebook and stamps. Here's a look at the inside of the box. It's hard to see in the other photos, but on this one you can actually see that I embossed the strip of Silent Night (navy) cardstock with a floral embossing folder.

And, finally, I created a card to complete the gift set. I embossed Happy Birthday on the Oat cardstock with clear embossing powder. I also embossed the sentiment, which reads "Someone like you should be celebrated every day!", with white embossing powder.

Well, I hope you have enjoyed my little project as much as I enjoyed creating it! Be sure to stop back tomorrow when the entire My Time Made Easy © team has more projects to show you, and all of these wonderful projects will be available in the store!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
