Let's Chat About Some Fabulous News!

Let's chat, shall we? I want to share some fabulous news with you all today! I have been asked to join the team of incredibly talented girls on the My Time Made Easy team! As many of you know, I'm sure the creative genius behind this company is Lauren Meader. I first became acquainted with Lauren when we served together on the Pink Cat Studio team, and have always been blown away by her creativity. It's amazing the ideas and designs she comes up with! I have jokingly said to stamping friends before that I wish she'd take a break so the rest of us could catch up! (Actually, what I specifically have said is that I wish Lauren would be stranded on an island somewhere for awhile! And Lauren, bless her heart, got a good chuckle at that!) I'm so honored to have this opportunity! The girls on this team have done an amazing job over the past months with Lauren's incredible templates, and the stamps are all so cute, as well as the awesome papers designed by my bestie Kristin Bueter, and Sara Williams! I can't wait for you to see all the goodness coming with this next release!

While Lauren and MTME are well-known for their fabulous 3-D templates, you'll mostly see me just creating cards so that you can see that even if you're not a big 3-D project stamper you can still be super creative with the stamps and papers!

So, enough babbling.... today I'm showing you a sneak peek of the new stamp set called Home Improvement, and there are also a few sneak peeks of other stamps to be shown in the next few days (the telephone, sentiment and the window panes). The Home Improvement set includes the window frame I've used as well as the curtain, the flower box and the leafy border. I created the little awning above the window with just a few score lines, and scalloped the edge with a Nestabilities die. The striped paper for the awning, and that pretty green designer paper are all digi-papers designed by Kristin! You'll LOVE the patterns and colors she has designed for this month as much as I do! And I put a piece of acetate in for the window, stamping the grid lines with Staz-On.




It's going to take me a little time to get used to linking things to the right places in the MTME store, so for now I'm just going to refer you to Lauren's blog for all the details today! And stop by again and again over the next few days and see what else I have to share! I'm especially excited about what I've got to show you on Sunday and Monday!

Thank you so much for stopping by, and letting me share this good news with you! Have a great weekend!
