Hi everyone!!

I hope you are as exited as I am for today’s first peeks at our June Release at My Time Made Easy ™ LLC!

Now the items you are previewing will not be available until June 1st!

(Note: So Sentimental has been out of stock-it is expected to be back IN STOCK next week-sorry!)

Today will be literally JAM packed with inspiration and ideas 😀 I’m very excited about this release, and have been on a creative streak after my medical hiatus! Wait until the days unfold with all the things I have in store for you. I may have been “away”, but I’ve been hard at work.

SO grab your coffee and get ready for some great ideas, a video, and a GIVEAWAY!

Well Preserved


Today I am excited to share a peek at a  NEW! Pretty Impressions stamp set called Well Preserved, as well as one of our NEW! Pretty Packaging templates called Jam Packed © .

After you are done here, you will want to be sure you visit  Stephanie Kraft and Katie Cotton! 

They both have additional samples with these NEW! products as well.

You also won’t want to miss some card projects from Dawn Easton and Geny Cassady as they are both using a NEW! Pretty Impressions stamp set called Killer Curves: Fancy Frames! (this set also has a coordinating Pretty Pieces Cut File called Killer Curves.)

I don’t even know where to begin with all the things that can/will be done with both the Well Preserved set (which also has a coordinating Well Preserved © Pretty Pieces Cut File) and coordinating Jam Packed © Pretty Packaging Template!

For starters I made a video to explain a little about the Well Preserved stamp set, and share with you some quick possibilities when you use the  Well Preserved stamp set and coordinating Well Preserved © Pretty Pieces Cut File!

NOTE: I had a new camera and photo editing software-sorry for the BLUR. I need to figure out what happened.

Now I figured it be best, before getting to the AMAZING Jam Packed © template, to share some info about the stamp set.

Well Preserved © Set of 58 Images $20  This set is *also available in digital download* $12!


 (Wait until you see all the amazing images in this set, and what I made for the June 1st release day!)

 This set is designed to coordinate with the Jam Packed © Pretty Packaging Template, as well as the Well Preserved © Pretty Pieces Cut File. 

You may also enjoy the variety of other Pretty Packaging templates! Don’t miss out on our All Tied Up! tag/ribbon frame collections too!

 Well Preserved is an amazing collection of sentiments and images! You will fall in love with the fruit and sentiment co-ordinations and possibilities.


For this jar of strawberry preserves I used an adhesive sticker to cover my jar lid. I stamped it with the “lattice” image from the Puckered Up Patterns set, in a pear ink. The label is from the Well Preserved stamp set.  

You will find so many wonderful uses for this set! Now personalizing your own homemade or (my personal choice) store bought  jars of yumminess couldn’t get any more easy, affordable, and fun. I included just about every sort of fruit you can preserve, with many images and sentiments to match! 

There are 2 style of canning jars. All the fruit images were made to fit within the canning jar stamp labels! As you can see by my sample above.


There are 2 great labels that can have many uses, like decorating your own canning jars, or for cards, tags, and other gift packaging, or they can be used for everyday occasions and gifts!


This is the front of my jar.  I used the Well Preserved © Pretty Pieces Cut File to cut an adhesive label sheet for my sticker. SO quick & easy. You could EASILY mass produce a bunch of labels. I stamped the label onto the cut label, then stamped the leafy border along the bottom. The 2 strawberry images were done by stamping one strawberry, then without re-inking, restamping the second strawberry. I added a page pebble over them for an additional touch. I then used the sentiment building images in the set to create the “Strawberry Preserves” for my label. Easy Peasy!  


Sentiments in this set include: 

For Someone Sweet 

Thank you Berry much!

 Just Pear-fect! 

You make life sweet! 


Hand Picked (great for store bought items! LOL!)

just for you 

You’re a Peach! 

Thanks a Bunch! 

With Love 

From the kitchen of: 

 Homemade just for you (designed to fit the label of jelly jar) 






























Now upon first look you *may* think this set is only good for canned fruit items, when it is really great for so much MORE!

Here a few examples of items you can use these images and sentiments with!

The obvious canned fruits

Fresh picked fruit

Fruit pies, pastry, breads, dry mixes, or other baked items using fruit.

Any fruity scented bath/body product (you can combine it with the Take Time stamp set!)

Fruit scented candles/tea lights/oils

Fruit flavored drink mixes, or tea’s.

Fruit flavored candies

OR for a FUN scratch & sniff effect, use these images with scented embossing powder!

Now how about learning about the Well Preserved © Pretty Pieces Cut File

Well Preserved Cut File $2.50 Available in SVG, WPC, DXF, GSD 

This file was designed to coordinate perfectly with the Well Preserved © Pretty Impressions stamp set! Now you don’t have to cut out the jelly jars or the amazing tags from the set! These can be used WITH The set, or totally on their own!

Now that FINALLY brings me to the Jam Packed © Pretty Packaging Template 


Available in PDF, SVG, WPC, DXF, GSD 

Completed Project Size

 4 1/2 Inches Tall

3 3/4 Inches Wide

3 1/2 Inches Deep  Another amazing and versatile template! jellyboxsmaple.JPG This is the decorated version! There has never been a better way to package up your “jam, jelly, preserves” or other canned goodness!! But it doesn’t stop there, I promise. You will be presented with a variety of uses/ideas as the week progresses.This is a super gift box, with a unique and fun tab tuck in closure! No more floppy lid!


This template was designed to coordinate with the Well Preserved © Pretty Impressions Stamp Set, and Well Preserved Pretty Pieces Cut File ©.


This was designed to hold your traditional 8 oz. (half pint) Ball Canning Jar, but it can be used for so much more!


 Here is the view with the preserves inside!


Now for this template to become even MORE versatile you can simply cut off the jar holder panel and it becomes a great gift box, with a fun closure, OR change the size and shape of the cut out, prior to assembly, to allow you to gift all sorts of various treats!

NOTE: There WILL be a video HOW TO for that later this week 😀 NO WORRIES! 


Whatever you “jam” in here, it is sure to be packed with love and surprise anyone!

Well that isn’t all of it. (I know! So much to share!! Think how long this took to TYPE)

Now the HOW TO for the “patterned” paper I made for my box top.


This is an awesome pattern that YOU can make with ANY of the images from the set, to coordinate with any project, tag, or card creations.

 Simply change the fruit, and color options for a fresh and amazing new look each time.

Step 1

Stamp the dashed argyle pattern from Argyle Amazement, in a pale version of your fruit ink color. Build your entire background panel.


Note: a darker ink was utilized for photo purposes on this tutorial sample.

Step 2

Stamp whatever fruit image in the set you wish to use, in the center of every other meeting point section.

Photo A


Photo B


Step 3

Stamp your leaves in between the fruit images, alternating the direction, in each row.

Photo A-Leaves going to the left- in every other row


Then stamp the leaves going to the right- in every other row

Step 4

Use your puckered X from Puckered Up Patterns to stamp all the remaining meeting points.


Step 5

Using a coordinating ink stamp the solid diamond pattern in the same rows as your fruit, remembering to skip a row, as seen in photo.


Now you are done!

Simply mix it up for a different look each and every time.


Here is the top of my box.

 I used the All Tied Up: Oval as my main layer for my jelly jar! The leaves from the Well Preserved set were a perfect fit!
