Well its the 10th already!

Can I get a WAHOO!!!

 Im so not ready, but I’ll do my best to keep up this week. Having 2 weeks “off” from stamping, KILLED my time and assignments schedule. Oh, yeah, and my MOJO! Not too happy about that.

Its S-L-O-W-L-Y making a come back.

Every month- during this week, I feel like Tigger from Winnie the Pooh! LOL! Just bouncin with excitement! Seriously. This usually gets me motivated to kick my own butt! We shall see.

 Time to share a sample using a My Timeless Template© , and of course, a new stamp set called Scattered Showers,  with you all!

You have had a view of this template a few weeks ago-it is called Get a Handle On It © 

This is due for release on the 15th.


Get a Handle On It © is the perfect box for SO MANY great gift ideas-as you will SOON find out for yourself!

Its a SUPER cute box, that has fun, cut out side panels, in which the box handle pops through.

I can’t tell you enough how much I love this particular template! LOVE!

Its cute, and perfect size. I love that the largest square nestability PERFECTLY layers on the bottom of this too, for great finishing touch.


Looks can be deceiving. You may think this is a SMALL box.

Well, NO! Its actually quite a nice size-measuring 3 1/2 inches squared.

This allows you to fit some awesome stuff in there. When we used this box at Stamp New England, we were all able to fit over 38 bite size chocolate candy bars/pieces. Now that ROCKS!

Wait till you see the box of beauty that I put in this creation! The little umbrella makes the perfect image since we are using this box/gift to brighten someone’s day. You will want to start making one for anyone you know- weather they are  celebrating something, or not feeling well. Any excuse will do!! It is sure to make someone’s day-rain or shine 😀


So today I am sharing a video that shows the SIMPLE technique I used for my Get a Handle On It © project

I’m calling it the “window treatment” because it allows us to add interest, and color to the windows of our boxes, or other projects, that may use acetate. Getting a small peek at what is IN your gift is so fun! Now you can make your “window” even prettier.


Here is the close up view of my “window treatment”.

This is where the Scattered Showers Stamp set comes in. It was PERFECT for this technique of dressing up the window of my box.

I used Papertrey Inks Clearly Creative Cardstock for my window.

You just stamp your image with White Stazon.

Then use your Souffle Gel pens, to color the acetate, from the back.

This gives you nice color on your window, and a great fresh look! Cute eh?

Now when you OPEN the box, this is the SURPRISE inside 😀


Now we take it out……..


This is what you are getting IN the box!


A bitty baby booty blooms box-(say that 5′x fast).

 Its a nice little gift, instead of giving FRESH flowers, that wilt and die, you can give them this.

I decorated the large square tin, that I made 5 baby booty flowers for.

A sprinkle of glitter-and VIOLA!  A gorgeous gift, or party favor-completely perfect in the gift box-which is a gift in itself.


The large square tin fits perfectly into the Get a Handle On It box.


Isn’t it so pretty? Simple and elegant.


Perfect size to keep on a desk!

Did you think that something like this could fit in the box?! Well it DOES!

Here is the close up of the little booty buds I made 😀


Aren’t they just adorable?

I put this up in my Etsy Shop, along with another version I created 😀 I hope someone finds it a good home 😀
