April-A Year In Review

Happy Wednesday!! I have my last My Time Made Easy project to share today. I mixed and matched an older cut file with some new fun products. I am showcasing the Card Candy cut file, which is from an older release. I paired it with some Momenta paper and new April release cut files.

The Card Candy cut file is a fun way to combine a card with a candy box. It's very similar to a candy book. Remember those Life Saver books that used to be available at Christmas time? I used to get one every year in my stocking from Santa! I added a belly band to my candy box for some added interactivity.

I really wanted to showcase this beautiful butterfly that is included in the Bloom Builders set this month. I love all the cut detail. Here is the candy box open. It has a little window for a sneak peek inside the box.

Another versatile cut file available this month is called Corner Slot Foliage. This cut file creates the front of a card with a fold over decorative corner. You could use it as a card front or use it like a card holder, like I did with my card.

I liked using double sided paper so the inside of the folder is one pattern, but when you fold over the corner you get another coordinating pattern. I used the new butterfly cut again to tie the two pieces together. Look at all the detail on the butterfly and the corner cut!

Now get yourself some coffee or a drink...and sit back and enjoy more inspiration from the DT today!

Thanks for coming by this week and seeing the new releases from My Time Made Easy! I hope you enjoyed what you saw!!
