MTME Sneak Peek Day 2 - Shop Around!

Hello! Today is the second day of sneak peeks for the My Time Made Easy © September release. This month, Lauren is release one mega template, Shop Around © and Shop Around Accessories ©. It is a house/store shaped template with many fun accessories. There are also 4 new stamp sets that coordinate with the template.

Be sure to visit Lauren and Silke to see their creations! Dawn will have a lovely card to show you, and so will Tammy Hershberger.. a big welcome to Tammy as she joins our team this month!

When I first saw the template, I thought of a school house! I used Sabrina's school colors of teal and purple. For the teal, I used Bazzill Artesian Pool and my purple is Couture Quest cardstock. For my first house, I kept things fairly simple. I added a couple of the Shop Around Accessories © -- the stairs and the pop-up window. On the stairs, I stamped a woodgrain pattern (from Home Improvement ©) onto it before I assembled it. The door, windows and polka dots on the roof (see side view below) are also from the same stamp set.

"Welcome" is from another stamp set, Sign It ©. I will be showing you more from these sets and the other sets in future projects. Below is a little detail shot of the side. I added a little apple in the window (apple is from Well Preserved ©.

The roof is actually the lid to this school house and the base is quite large.. you can fill this some yummy treats. I filled mine with See's suckers!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
