(NOTE: I will return later with the Saturday Sketch!)

I spent a LONG time uploading my PTI stuff and editing this, so bear with me OK!

OK- maybe Im blowing this post up to high expectations, but I really am in LOVE with todays projects. REALLY LOVE

Every month I get FLODDEd with so many ideas for samples with each template my head spins. I dream about templates (I WISH that was a joke sometimes!! LOL!)

OK now I am gearing up for thePapertrey Ink Release TONIGHT!!

Im beyond excited about this release and todays post.

I saved the best for last! In my opinion ๐Ÿ˜€

Are you excited?? You all got me excited more than I was! LOL! That is PRETTY excited, let me tell you.

I do have some more samples using the templates to share tomorrow too, so check in again to not only see those but the release samples as well. I had a blast. The team really knocked it out of teh park with thier samples. Wait till you see them all.

OK first up is my favorite File it with Flair ยฉย using my NEW! Favorite set Wishing You.

This set and Bitty Dots 2008 patterned paper

Now many of you stated how cool it would be to organize your cards in this box! Well you have NO IDEA how awesome and easy it will be. Now this is not only easy, butย a great gift!!!

OK enough blabbering-see for yourself.

Pretty Petal Pocket Set


Now this is a template combo!!

The boxes you see are the pocket template from All Boxed Up!ย Now that pocket template alone is fabulous. I totally love it.


I am in LOVE with this set!! LOVE! The tulips, colors, and everything.

Here is the other side


No matter what way you turn it-its just stunning. I like to always decorate an entire project so all angles are purty ๐Ÿ˜€

Look at the close-up


The open part goes in the back of the template, and I stamped the ends with the category of cards I want to fit into each file. I used last years PTI anniversary set for the pocket labels.


Now is the top view


I tied some ribbon around the set-so I can easily pull it up all in one. The templates do come out easy, and look SO nice and organized don’t they?

I’d love to hear your feedback on this one since I was TOTALLY bouncing over it. I just love versatility, and this template is by far one of the most versatile ones yet! The curves make is SO stunning.

I cannot wait to see what everyone makes when they get their own.

OK now moving on to another Epiphany!!

Hello Kitty!! Using Captured Card Case


Can you seriously BELIEVE how cute this is?

Obviously, my creation is inspired by a gift set, that Amber is giving to her friend Abby for a birthday party she is attending on Sunday. We saw this plastic purse with Hello Kitty stamps, and other items, so we brought it home, in hopes of transforming it.

I think I did a good job making my own version of Hello Kitty with 100% of Papertrey Ink products!


I used a oval nestability to create the face.

I then took the large heart punch, and punched two ears (using a corner rounder on the tip) and adhered them behind the head-upside-down!!

The eyes are the oval flower centers from Floral Frenzy ๐Ÿ˜€ I added some eyelashes with a marker tip.

I used Hearts Borders and Cornersfor the little heart stamped by her ear (like in the acrylic box the gift came with), and for the little heart nose!

Pebble Pearlescent Pastels made my perfectly rosy cheeks.


Side view

This is a take along “purse” just like the case it came in, only it utilizes my Captured Card Case template!

I just punched a notch in the lid, so the handle would fit with the hinge style lid.

I really like how a little girl can carry this around with all her supplies. WAY CUTE!!


I trimmed the lid with some Raspberry Fizz patterned paper for some POP!

The fabric flowers cover the notch ( I used fabric ones since they are much more durable than paper), an the heart eyelets that were punched and inserted, so that my paint can handle would fit perfectly. I used heart eyelets so if you DO see the eyelet holes they look nice and match well!!

NOTE: Install your brads PRIOR to assembling the template!

This is what is INSIDE


There are a set of mini markers, mini pencils, and crayons on the left-with a notebook.

I altered a bandaid tin, and put the little stampers and stickers in there. There is another notepad underneath.

I had SO much fun making this!

Poor Amber doesn’t want to give it away! LOL! That made me feel so good to hear. I hope her friend likes it.

I loved using PTI items to create a Hello Kitty themed gift for my daughters friend! It was surprisingly EASY!

Close up-I love making a circle window.


I am just in LOVE with the sentiment on this!

Life-is a succession of moments.

To live each one is to succeed.

Inside this box is a scented candle. Always a nice gift for any occasion. It matches perfectly too.

I got a bunch of them at Target ๐Ÿ˜€


This is the other side. I love the flower garden, stamped all around the entire box! This set makes it SOOOO easy.
