Tonight is the release night at Papertrey Ink!

I hope you are just as excited as I am. I’m just dying to see what you all do with the new goodies 😀

Also a HUGE thank you! I am so excited about all the amazing comments reguarding My Timeless Templates ©! I appreciate the emails I get with samples too! You all are rocking them out! You are all truly amazing, and your words really and truly brightened my day.

I have a crazy week coming and needed the lift 😀 Jay is having his back surgery on Thursday (he is starting to FREAK out) and will be there overnight, my grandfather (who has always been like a father to me growing up) is suddenly seriously ill, Alexa has her post Chemo check up Wednesday (which ALWAYS freaks me out!) and I have some other “worries” going on that are just weighing me down. So I want to thank you for lifting me up with your sweet words! Oh and if you can throw in a prayer for my family please! I’m really just stressed about the weeks events.

I will be announcing a winner for the 2 My Timeless Templates ©later today. As I post this, its too early! LOL!

As I promised yesterday, I have my Pretty Petal Pocket © template in the standard and Pretty Petite version! I hope you like seeing the same design, just different sizes,side by side.

I will answer questions about the templates in my contest winner post! I have to scroll through and see what people are interested in knowing! I know dimensions was one question!

Please note ALL our templates give the finished sizes on the website when you click to view the actual template 😀

In the mean time……here we go!

Pretty Poppy Pockets Duo


I think Poppy and True Black have an amazing POP together! A bright color combination that I just adore together!

 I wanted a dramatic, and elegant look, so that is exactly what I feel I got here!

I also lined the inside, side panel! I love the finished look taking that extra step has 😀

Pretty Poppy Pocket


This is the larger template, decorated.

I used a large chipboard shape that is from Maya Road. I just covered it with my Green Tea Leaves paper.


For a more dramatic appeal, I covered the back of the chipboard with Pure Poppy cardstock, amking it a bit larger than the chipboard layer. I then distressed the layered edge for a cool look! I never did that before and I really enjoy the way it appears in real life 😀

I also did lots of flower layering, by using some paper punched flowers, felt flowers from American Crafts, and Prima flowers!

The leaves are a Cuttlebug long die, that I felt was PERFECT for this project!

Pretty Petite Poppy Pocket


This is the smaller pocket. It may be smaller but is just as cute, and still holds a great number of ideas for gifts!

I made my own chipboard flowers using the same flowers cuttlebig die.

The sentiment flag was stamped with Text Style bkgd, in gray ink, then the sentiment from the NEW! Everyday Button Bits was stamped in black ink. I did some faux stitches as well to add to the look!

I think they are a very cute set!


I love making the matchy match stuff, and making my own chipboard embellishments was a fun challenge for me today! I get bored with the same ole, same ole, and I have to say my mojo is in FULL gear! I love when that happens!

This was made to hold 2 bags of Dove Chocolates! Isn’t it PERFECT for that?! I LOVE Dove Chocolate!

I’m in love!

I love the little flower image from Bird Watching, and SO wanted to use it since it’s release. I finally got the opportunity this time 😀


I just added some adhesive pearls to the lil tulip like flower centers. such a EASY addition, that packs a big WOW! factor.


One last side photo


Now we can move on to the very SIMPLE Milk Made © Crate.


This template ALONE can be used to house a wide variety of items, in itself! Its just SOOOOOO cute.

Add dividers, and sort your desk stuff……as I did the other day put note cards or flower pots……recipe cards………altered chocolate bars 😀 YUM! Smores mix carrier! OH! That sounds yum-o!

As you can see I also lined the bottom of the Milk Made © Crate. Sometimes its that LITTLE extra step that completes a project 😀

Obviously kept this one UBER simple, and I think that adds to the beauty.
