OK are you ready for some MORE peeks!! I’m so excited!

I’m running so behind this week! Spent the day with the kids at Story Land yesterday. 3 hour drive due to traffic! YIKES! I thought the kids would make me crazy but it turned out to be my hubby complaining about the drive! LOL! Anyway, it was a gorgeous day! PERFECT! We had a blast!

OK down to buisness!

Some time ago (back in March) I posted this project—>Baby Bunny Basket

WOWZERS! Was I ever swamped with emails about HOW to make it!! Little did you know, I already had it planned for a template 😀 I did most of my templates about a year ago now!! I have sat on SO many of them for so long now!! It is SO hard! Every now and again I sneak a version in my regular posting 😀

I have over 2 more years worth done, so it can be hard to WAIT, and I often forget what I made! LOL!!! I do have a sample file, but every-time we decide what comes next, I am always surprised!! LOL!

Well, now I’d like to formally  introduce you to Pretty Petal Pocket ©


About Pretty Petal Pocket ©:

 You will love this “pocket” style template creation! Sweet and simple, but it looks so complicated with all the angles and curves! With the template you will be whipping up gifts in NO TIME!  You can make it closed, leave it open, handle on, handle off! Its the perfect size. Petal center on, or leave it off. Many choices!

 This pretty “pocket” was inspired by my very favorite flower, the tulip! That is how it received the name. I wanted to recreate the delicate and pretty layers! Like all the My Timeless Templates ©, the possibilities are endless!  It doesn’t have to be all girly! Leave off the additional “petal” layer, and it becomes the sweetest “basket” or as I like to say here, “pocket” template! It can hold so many fabulous things!  Weather use make it a “petal” or a “simple basket” style the receiver will be dying to pick this pocket!


I love the angles/curves it has, and the ability to transform the design every time!


This one was the “concept sample” since I design just the templates first, then I later make my actual “sample”. These are “quickies” that the design team get to see so that they know what the finished project looks like 😀

For this one I printed my template in pure poppy, then make the “tulip petal” from black and white basics, then colored it with my copic markers to match my project!

Shows you just how fast and easy it can be!

Post your creations HERE

It was so inspiring to me, that I had to make my newest Pretty Petal Pocket © template look *just* like it 😀


OK not JUST like it, but my fun and funky version! I have to say I am in HEAVEN with this “handbag”. You’d never think CARDSTOCK would you?


Look at the cool decor on the fun side panel! I could scream!

Check it out girls! REAL hardware to boot!


I feel like I’m cheating on my template because for this sample,I just used ribbon as my handles, and metal pieces I purchased at the craft store! Jewelry rings for the handbag rings, and an actual purse latch! HELLO! Love that!


ALL attached with cardstock! So cool.

My countdown post using In Bloom was a total TOSS UP!! I was going to post BOTH projects together, but didn’t want to overwhelm you! I LOVE this new stamp set! LOVE!


Close up-love the bling! I also love the colors!!! LOVE!


This used black Atyou glitter pen. Subtle yet stunning!

So I guess I KIND of strayed a little with my color-not too bad! LOL!

Another view


It’s just delicious

Here is my Amber holding the template handbag!!
