So Berry Sweet: My Time Made Easy

Hi everyone! Today the My Time Made Easy team is a sneaking a new template from the April release at My Time Made Easy. We have two new templates being released this month, and this one is called Berry Sweet Basket.Let me begin by saying that this basket is HUGE!! I was shocked at its size! Lots of room for a variety of things! The first thing I did was print out Well Woven digital paper in the Green Pasture color (yes, this basket is actually green, but it looks brown!). I actually printed it on both sides of the paper so it would be finished off on the inside too. See what's inside? That's new too! We have a new cut file called the Apple a Day cut file. I printed three of them: two in the actual size and one sized down to 75%. The top "leaves" is from the Fanciful Flowers cut file. I ran it through the Swiss Dots embossing folder and attached it with a brad. I know a lot of people who make jellies and jams, and after I made the basket I thought it would be a nice way to present those jellies and jams to someone. So I created a card with the Well Preserved stamp set and made an apple jelly jar to go on it. The label is another new cut file being released this month called Occasional Label. I stamped it with the new Occasional Labels stamp set (the checked outline) and Sentimental Occasions stamp set. I added the apple from Well Preserved as well. I liked the red checked paper (from Doodlebugs)...it matches the red apple theme. The MTME girls have more inspiration for you to check out. You can find the links on my side bar, or just head over to Lauren's blog for links. We also have Amy Sheffer as our Guest Designer this month! Please stop by to see her fabulous work!

Also stop by the MTME blog for the new Pretty Patterns sketch challenge. Tangii has her new team together and you'll see some great creations there too. They'd love to see you playing along!

Tomorrow is release day at MTME! More cool stuff for you eyes! See you then! Thanks for stopping in today!

The basket weave look is really nice for the strawberry basket. It makes my mouth water for strawberries, seeing all those with the basket!
