My Time Made Easy - Home Improvement


Have you stayed caught up this past week with all the fabulous new release projects with the Shoppe Around template and other fabulous stamps from My Time Made Easy? The girls have all done an amazing job with their little shops and houses.... it makes me want a Cricut SO bad! :) Be sure to check out Lauren's daily links on her blog to see who's got something to show you each day!

Today the whole group is posting to show you more possibilities with the stamps, templates and papers that were released this month, and specifically the Homemade Card & Envelope template! This is so easy to use to create a real one-of-a-kind card and envelope, and the possibilities are endless for different themes.

I spotted some paper in the MTME shop that gave me a great idea for a card using this template, so I just ran with my idea. This is the Wrenchy Rain paper from the Shopping Shirley's Ganache Sprinkles paper. My niece and her boyfriend just bought a house together, so I thought this would be totally cute to use to give them a housewarming gift card!
I printed the paper for the roof from the Construction Materials paper pack, then printed the roof from the Homemade Card & Envelope template on the back and cut it out (and did likewise with the template on the Wrenchy Rain paper.)
I used stamps from the Home Improvement set to decorate the front of my house, and stamps from the Sign It set for the sentiment piece on the roof. And one reason why I just LOVE clear stamps is because I like to cut apart sentiment to suit my needs, as I did here with the "For your House" on the inside card. The first part of the sentiment comes from "For your travels" and the second part comes from the "Coffee House" sentiment in the Sign It set!

Check out the blogs of the MTME team members for more Homemade Card & Envelope inspiration today...


Enjoy! Happy stamping, and thank you for stopping by!
