OK no joke Im totally in LOVE with Raspberry Fizz! LOVE I tell you.

I figured since the Papertrey Ink Release is just hours away, I would give you another couple of ideas for use of my newest templates The Perfect Match © and Take Along Tote ©

Now I have told you in previous posts that the Perfect Match Box, is like 3 templates in 1!

You get to use the slider/base together, and you get the Base template, as well as a slider template! So I wanted you too see the pieces from The Perfect Match © used separately!

The first one ROCKS!


Because it uses the base template from The Perfect Match © to hold the square Trendy Tubes!


Oh yes! That is them!

Inside I have some yummy peanut M&M’s. This box is holding 4 of the square tubes. With room to spare 😀

Now you may be wondering HOW those 8 inch high tubes got into my little Match box, right?

Well I CUT them down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes you can resize them and they work perfectly!!!!!!!!!!!


I cut my tubes down to about 4 1/2, then reapplies the topper. I just used a hobby blade 😀 EASY PEASY!

Now think of the possibilities!

I’m so in love with this concept!

Here is a side view.


I used my Heart Prints set, and my heart punch to create the fun from embellishment. Can I tell you that this project seriously too me ONLY 10 minutes! How cool is that?

It would have been quicker if I didn’t use a heart scallop border punch to wrap around my box! LOL!

For my ribbon wrap, I adhered it to the box bottom, then added a Raspberry Fizz cardstock panel to the bottom to cover it. Nice finished look, and my ribbon and tubes stay in place.

Now next up we are using just the slider cover portion, as a basket.

Sweet Pea


Being inspired by my bottle of body wash-I used Out on a Limb.

I love stamping over patterned paper Raspberry Fizz Miz

You may by now know how much I love giving (and receiving) bath and body stuff! Sweet Pea from Bath and Body works smells AMAZING! I scored these in the $1 section at Christmas time!

Inside this template there is a travel size body wash (as seen), body mist, and hand sanitizer! $3 total! This gift looks like more than that!


The owl is a super cute embossing punch I got from Martha Stewart!

I just punched it out, and dragged it through my Snow White ink 😀 —->C-A-UTE!

OK now we have our Take Along Tote!


Taking inspiration from the paper, I used my flower punch to create a sparkly vellum flower.

With just a glue pen, some free handing, and glitter-


Not too shabby, eh?

Side view-


How about using the pocket templates, on the inside?


I put the peanut M&M’s into my glassine bags, and added them into my pockets! YUM-O!

I jjust punched a few squares of the patterned paper, for an easy design. I then added some felt flowers, with my white blooms.

Who’d of thunk M&M’s could be so elegant! LOL! and FUNKY!

Well that is it for tonight. I hope to see you at the release 😀

Thanks for all the support, and you sweet comments.

On a good note I think I may have a video tutorial done soon!! I just got done editing one for the Papertrey Ink Newsletter. Cross your fingers I get it uploaded by tomorrow night 😀

Later-with more to come
