Well by now you can count down the HOURS to our March 1st Release at My Time Made Easy ™ LLC!

Im so excited about everything we have to share. This has been just the BEGINNING of the project samples and ideas we as a team have to share!

I have my own things to share using Card Catch All ©, (you will LOVE this one!) which was featured by 2 members of my team yesterday, as well as 2 of our stamp sets So Sentimental © and Fanciful Flourishes ©.   Those will be featured tomorrow. For today’s project feature we have a Pretty Packaging © template called : It’s A Shower.

This is a Pretty Packaging © template you are sure to fall in love with!

Today both Kristin Bueter and Tracey Cuccia will be sharing some gorgeous projects using this new template with you today!

First we have Tracey Cuccia 


Here is what Tracey had to say:

“I’ve been to soooo many bridal and baby showers, it’s just not even funny…my sister-in-law jokes that that move ’27 dresses’ was about me, lol.  Anyway, more so nowadays, a lot of people don’t really have umbrellas at their showers, and I think that’s a shame.  I think it was a fun tradition, and love the one my Mom made for me, but it’s so big, I can’t really display it anywhere.  One of Lauren’s latest templates, It’s a Shower can bring back that dying tradtion, in a new, fun way…let me show you how…”

Also Kristin Bueter has a peek


Here is what Kristin had to say:

I am in LOVE with the “It’s A Shower” template!  The unique design lends to a flood of mojo just looking at it.  I chose to keep this project simple to show you that EASY assembly can still look awesome!  so be sure to visit Kristin Bueter as well!

Now time for the details!

It’s A Shower ©


I have to say I truly LOVE this amazing template for SO many reasons.

It’s A Shower © is the PERFECT template for so many occasions! I have long awaited a 3 dimensional umbrella template. (NOT SHOWN) It also has a scallop layer that fits perfectly around the inside trim too!! LOVE that feature.

 This template can be easily resized to suit so many purposes!

 Fill it with paper flowers, candy, bath salts/petals, tea lights or whatever else you choose!


Use it as a Wedding or Baby Shower centerpiece, party favor, or decoration. This is easily customizable for any colors scheme, occasion or decor.  You can resize it, and even fold it in half to create the PERFECT three dimensional umbrella for the invitation or thank you card. Perfect for sending “sunshine” or those “cheer up” cards too! How about a “showering you with”: love, well wishes , hugs, and kisses. 


This template is certain to shower your creative side with ideas!

For my project today I used some chocolate cardstock to create my umbrella.  I chose to decorate the panels using the umbrella pattern from  Loving Heart © Pretty Printables digital paper. That paper is what spurred this template creation!

I created my handle base in kraft and the “handle” in red.

A friend of mine who LOVES Starburst Jelly Beans have been having a rough few days, so I  made this for her, and filled it with those.


I then wrapped it in some Tulle.  You can find some in the Bridal section of your craft store. Rather large rolls for about $2-$3.

I used the FAB Fanciful Flowers © Cut File to add a few flowers to the umbrella.

When I dropped it off at her office people went NUTS! Many asked if I did special orders (Um, NO! But you can make it yourself! LOL!) That felt good too.  I stamped the tag in the back (forgot to photograph that part! DUH!!) with the “sending you sunshine” sentiment from the You’ve Got Mail © set. I love that sentiment.

My tag was stamped with the frame and flourish in the NEW! So Sentimental Set. I love the tag!

There is something about SIMPLE sometimes.

It is really nice to have organziations that reach our to families like this so you can meet and connect with others who have had similar expieriences, or just be a “normal” family again.
