My Time Made Easy - A Year in Review

Hi friends!  Today the My Time Made Easy design team is posting our montly Year in Review projects.  This is where we use old and new products.  I'm using three cut files (one new, two old) with new and old paper and old stamp sets.  Let's begin.

Last month I created this template called Blue Collar for my father-in-law for Father's Day.  I put some cotton handkerchiefs in them.  You can see the post here.  I always give him gift cards to his favorite restaurants around town, so I decided to make this gift card holder called Wallet of Wishes to go along with it.

I started by recoloring this woodgrain paper from the new Camp Out digital paper pack in gray.   Then I created the label using A Vintage Day for Day digital stamp set in marigold.  I added a button on the tab and threaded it with some marigold baker's twine.

Here's the inside where you put the gift card.  He's not getting this Target card...I just haven't gotten him his restaurant gift cards yet.  This one is mine!  You can see how there is a slot for the card to sit in.

There's another pocket behind the gift card slot, so I created a tag using the same images from the front label.  You can write your message on this label.  This wallet can be used in so many ways.  I can't wait to make it for a girly girl!  Maybe a Coach or Chanel wallet!

I decided to use another cut file for a little gift for a friend.  This is a new cut file called Paper Bag.  These are so easy to cut and assemble and would be terrific shower favors or just a little something to give as a hostess gift.  I put two small bottles of lotion from Bath and Body Works inside and they fit perfectly.  I used the Darling Dots digital paper for the bag. It's printed on white cardstock, then cut out.  The label is another cut file called All Tied Up Rectangles.  I stamped the sentiment from the Sign It acrylic stamp set.  The frilly details on the label is a stamp from Killer Curves Fancy Frames.

I tied the label on with some white satin ribbon and tied a pretty bow in the side.   So pretty!

That's it for me, but the entire MTME team is posting today, so make sure you stop by their blogs!
Thanks for stopping in today!  Have a great week!
