No matter which is your favorite, I think I have something you *might* like!

If you can’t tell I’m totally having a blast with the templates 😀 My mind is just RACING with idea, after idea. I LIVE for making boxes/gift items. I love personalizing things and making it all matchy matchy!

I just delivered Amber’s end of the year teacher gifts, (they are featured in the exclusive Idea Book-for the Pack a Picnic ©-if you are wondering WHAT I gave them :d) and they could not believe I MADE them from paper! They were in awe. It was SOOOOO nice to see them so appreciated. I told them they can re-gift them and they looked at me like I had 12 heads! They said NO WAY! We are keeping this for ourselves. YEAH! Mission accomplished.

That is *just* the best feeling in the world.

Now I have another set of gifts here that I hope get the SAME response!

Today’s post shares samples from my NEW! My Timeless Template Release-Pack a Picnic © & Card Couture ©

They are being released on the 15th

As I said, be it coffee or tea, I think these 2 ideas are going to be a HUGE hit.

Pack a Picnic © goes Coffee Cups


Seriously?! Does it get ANY cuter, AND easier? I think not :D)

I LOVE the large and small variation of the template. TOO CUTE.

I was so over the moon with this sample! It was *almost* in the exclusive idea book, but I HAD to share it instead. I’m seriously in LOVE!

I made my own patterned paper using Heather’s Warm Happiness set. I stamped the various mags, and “coffee” sentiment all over! It was inspired by the coffee themed fabric napkin/supplies I purchased at Joann’s Craft Store.

I used my handle template to make coffee mug handles instead 😀

Large cuppa


This is the close up view of the large coffee cup. Its filled with treats for one of the aides in Alexa’s classroom who LOVES coffee.

Coffee House Cookies


This is a bag filled with my Coffee House Style cookies. My favorite recipe.

YES! I baked these! They are SCRUM*DID*DILLY*UMPTIOUS!

I have 8 in the Coffee Bag, that I stamped with Holiday Treats.

They have chocolate chunks, white chocolate, butterscotch, AND peanut butter chips too!

They are SOFT-and probably 1,000 calories easy. They are very big-Like you can only eat one :D)


I also included a matching magnetic notepad, and a gift card to Dunkin Donuts.

She always has a XL coffee, everyday!


Now in the mini coffee cup

This is one of the large round tins, filled with the Cappuccino mix that I LOVE adding to my coffee 😀


Here it is in the tin.


I bought the coffee scoop at Joann’s as well. Just 3 scoops to 80z of coffee, and YUM!!!

I made my tags to make it all matchy!

ME also being a coffee lover, am going to have a VERY hard time parting with this set.

I think she will like it :D) If she doesn’t she can give it back! LOL!


My Timeless Template: Pack a Picnic ©

Stamps: Warm Happiness, Holiday Treats

Cardstock: Dark Chocolate, Vintage Cream

Ink:Dark chocolate, hibiscus burst, spring moss, blush blossom

Ribbon: Hibiscus burst collection

Clear top tin, coffee bag, scooper, notepad, gift card

Now let’s move onto the TEA project!

Tea for you


I THINK you will really like this idea (OK- I HOPE you will :D)

Obviously I love the pairing of Tea for Two and Green Tea Leaves paper!

This particular tea pot is my fave! Most likely because I LOVE Beautiful blooms-its like my MOST used set.


Sentiment reads: Special Friend Blend

Now this gift uses my Card Couture template. This gift today is meant to be a tea sampler!


You just purchase the box of assorted teas, from Celestial Seasonings, and you can put each one in each pocket!


(I only had two left! have to buy some more-sorry)

They fit perfectly! What a delicious gift, to help sooth someone each night before bed. They are individually wrapped, so they will stay FRESH. These are caffeine FREE!


Just a nice way to keep them out on the counter, or where ever. When they are DONE with the tea, they can refill it, or use it for something else.

You TRULY will love how many things you can gift in this.


I LOVE adding a layer of designer paper to the side panels

TIP: I do the scoring BEFORE I layer on the patterned paper. I then do my folding after I layer my paper on. Because the main layer is pre-scored, it folds in and out nicely. Hardly no work to get this gift done.


I know I’d buy MORE tea if it was all packaged like that, JUST for the box!

Here are the front details.

I love the herbal tea tag too! Cute touch.


Stamps: Tea for Two

Cardstock/patterned paper: Vintage cream, Ripe avocado,  Spring Moss, Green Tea Leaves

Ink: Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado

Ribbon: Ripe Avocado stitched-other pumpkin grosgrain, cream twill

other: Prima flowers, dew drops, bling, magnetic closure, tea

So that does it for me today.

Amber is graduating Pre-School today! My, my, my. Where does the time go? Feels like they just placed her in my arms in the hospital, now she will be going to BIG school, 5 days a week. Oh, how I will miss her when she is gone. She is my little sidekick. Getting SO big.

Well I hope you enjoyed the peeks.
