OK if you said butterflies, you are correct!

What is my SECOND favorite thing?

YES! Coffee!! These are 2 “things” that I am all about! I love them.

NOTE: this is also my 2nd post for today, so don’t miss post #1 and post #3! I have worked hard to pull it all together today. It’s a good thing my passion for this craft burns so deep, because sometimes it is also a lot of “work”. I think people can tell I LOVE my job! I love when I’m INSANELY busy! Its a challenge for me. In fact when I’m not challenged or busy I hit a HUGE brick wall. I don’t know what to do with myself 😀

OK back to the post……

My favorite thing to use the My Timeless Templatesfor is of course all SORTS of coffee, tea, or cocoa type’s of beverage gifts. I think I have incorporated that into EVERY single template release to date! Actually I may have to look back because I’m so sure I have! LOL!

I KNOW I’m not alone in LOVING to find fun, new, and cool ways to package up such a WONDERFUL and SIMPLE treats for people. OK at least I don’t think you are sick of those ideas yet, are you?

Well it wouldn’t be ANOTHER fab template release (IMHO) without finding yet ANOTHER template to use to package up my fave treat!

SO today I am sharing my 3 versions of the Cash or Charge Trio template (releasing the 15th!), for my super sweet coffee treats 😀


AHHHH! Is that not delicious?

I don’t think I can ever give these away! LOL!!!!

Here I used ALL three of the templates that come in the Cash or Charge Trio.

So….I used my chocolate bitty dots paper, and COLORED it, to match my projects! I also colored my polka dot ribbon to match too 😀 I am officially in LOVE with Sign Language too 😀 It made the perfect addition to my creations.

Cash or Charge #1


This is the front of the template. Sweet and simple. I LOVE the paper 😀 I am all about customizing paper like this to match your needs. Its fun , easy and stretches the possibilities for you.

I just used the front flap template for this. You can have a template wrap as well. Lots of ways to create this.

This is the back of the “wallet” style. You can really dress it up there too!


I just colored the words each a different color. Stamped, colored and cut my mug. I LOVE adding 3D elements.

Inside is a gift card to my fave coffee shop (Yes! I am keeping it for me 😀 I worked hard this past month and deserve it, don’t I?!)

Next up we have Cash or Charge #2


How cute is this?

My favorite project for this release 😀 Sweet and simple and yet a WOW! This particular template is just so versatile.

Did you notice that this template, when turned, could also be a mug of coffee? I about DIED when I had this epiphany! I cut down the embossing mat that comes with this template to create the “coffee” part of the mug!


I just made sure the flap was placed on the backside

I bent the sentiment from Tea for Two, to go along with my template bottom. I was in PURE heaven!!

Now inside this template is NOT a gift card, NOT cash……but , the YUM-A-LICIOUS packet of GOURMET hot cocoa from Lindt. Perfect fit! Just adhere inside so it doesn’t slip out.

Talk about amazing. You will be hooked on this stuff if you get some. Word to the wise-Do NOT drink it. Just package it up for friends in family and don’t ever try it! You will save yourself a lot of naughty, high calorie, creamy, chocolate-y, heaven in a cup, sinfulness—-> if you just LET IT GO!

Now speaking of this cocoa…lets move along (and wipe the drool) to the next template in the trio

Cash or Charge #3


This template is holding that SAME packet of cocoa in the pocket!

Isn’t it the cutest cocoa pocket?

You can also use this pocket idea to put in dip/seasoning mixes from Tastefully Simple, other drink mixes, face masks, trail size bath and beauty packets, tea, tickets to a game or concert…..oh man, I could just go on forever 😀


Just pull on the ribbon and the cocoa comes out. Easy peasy!
