Simply Stunning Gifts - My Time Made Easy

Its Time for a new release at My Time Made Easy and I would like to introduce you to the new tapered off template.

You can have so much fun with this template as you can make it into a 3 dimensional house by adding doors and windows.  Or do what I have done and just use some beautiful pattern paper and ribbon.

I have made mine into a cupcake decorating gift set as its such a great size.

The template measures:
6 Inches tall
6 Inches wide
3 1/8 Inches deep

Price - $3.99

Available in PDF, SVG, DXF, WPC

I have used papers called Minty Chocolate, the cupcake stand is from the stamp set called Sweet Treats, the sentiment is from Well Preserved and the frame is from Spring In Bloom.
I have then added my own wooden spoon embelsihment.
I have also created a card to match:

Here is the gift set

Shabby Sunshine

Just look at this lovely picture for Inspiration:

How could I resist.  Its challenge time at The Shabby Tea Room and the challenge is to create a card or project inspired by the photo and to use Aqua, Yellow, white/cream and use some twine.

Here is my card:

I used one of all time favourites.  I just love making organza roses!!!  I have also added a sweet wooden butterfly.
I love the spring feel to this card.

The layout for the card is taken from the Mojo Monday challenge:

For The Boys

Its challenge time at Cupcake Craft Challenges and I had to give this one a go as its for the boys.  I recently purchased Big Fella from Pink Petticoat as it was less than half price and thought I would have a play.

Here is what I made:

The collection comes complete with papers, digi stamps and sentiments, perfect!

Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine.  I am hoping to get the dreaded ironing pile tackled then I am going for a practice on my scooter.  Its so funny seeing me riding this thing when they are mostly for teenagers.  But my husband thought it would teach me some road sense before I sit my driving test.

Please excuse my appearance and my very fetching slippers.  I am fully equipped to ride it with a helmet etc and its for Mummy only!!  My daughter just wanted to sit on it and pose with me.

Sunshine and Kites

Happy weekend to you all.  My daughter and I are off out on a play date this afternoon.  Its such a lovely place called Le Masion Enfance where my daughter can run around and be a 4 year old.  I have been baking so I have got lots of cupcakes to take as we were told to bring a cake.

Just a little card to share seen as the sun is trying to make an appearance.

The stamped image is from Annabelle Stamps and I have paper pieced her outfit.

I have forgotten where the papers came from as they were a freebie from a craft magazine but I can't remember which one.

This card is for the challenge at A Gem Of A Challenge called bring on the sunshine.

Christian Voltz

My daughter has been following in the footsteps of Christian Voltz and I just had to share her creation with you.

You can learn more about the artist HERE

Her class at school have been studying about him and have tried to copy his style.

Here is my daughters creation:

I am a proud Mum.  I love it!!!

Cute Bunnies

Here is a little card I have made for the challenge at The Ribbon Reel called Spring is Here.

Spring is definitely in my garden with all the lovely blossom on our fruit trees but shame about the weather, to much rain!!!

The challenge is to create a card or project inspired by the colours in the photo and to include a bunny and ribbon.

and what a cute photo.

Here is my card.

I have used a cute bunny digi stamp from Sliekje Stamps and coloured the image using promarkers.  The yellow cherry paper is from Pink Petticoat and the textured green paper is a sheet a very lovely friend gave me.  I have then added some ribbon to the flower and a glitter star.

Have a great weekend!!!

Magazine Freebies

Whilst I was in England I picked up a copy of Quick Cards and what a lovely surprise to find a set of clear stamps from Pink Petticoat.

I then found some lovely inspiration from The Shabby Tea Room to create a card.  The challenge is to create a card or project inspired by the photo  below and to use pink, green, and white or cream and include a sewing element.

Here is my card.

I have used the free set of stamps and I have used papers called Vintage Rose all from Pink Petticoat. What a bargain  if you hurry the set of papers is less then half price. HERE.
My sewing element is the little button added to the centre of the flower.

The sketch for the card is taken from the challenge at Mojo Monday.

Here is just a couple of photos of the rainbow cupcakes I made for my daughters birthday.  Whilst I was in England I managed to get hold of some gel food colouring so I was able to make some rainbows.

I even coloured the cake batter, you can just see it in the photo.

They also went perfectly with my little favour boxes.

Such a beautiful day!!

The sun is really shining here today and what a great party we had in the garden yesterday to celebrate my daughters 4th birthday with her little school friends.

We went to England for a little holiday and celebrated her actual birthday then but thought it would be nice to have her friends and their mums over to play and have some cake.

I will post some photos later.

But today I have created a card and little box with some papers that I have already used on several posts but I love them so much.

The papers are from Dovecraft called cupcake boutique and so is the little chipboard tea cup.
The stamped image is from Kanban which I have paper pieced and coloured with promarkers.  Finally the little flag sentiment is from Pink Petticoat called Sweet Sundaes which I am afraid is no longer available but they have other gorgeous sentiments available to download.

Also I have made a little cupcake gift box to match:

The template is from My Time Made Easy called Lil Cupcake.  I have used the same papers but have added a chipboard teapot, some bunting and a organza flower.

Its makes such a cute set.
