Well today officially kicks off day one of the Papertrey Ink November Release Countdown. Over the next few days I’ll be sharing so many ideas with you all, I can hardly wait. I feel like I’m always on the verge of bursting at the seams! I always have to WAIT to share such good stuff.

All items shown today are PREVIEWS! They will NOT be available until Nov. 15th.

So yesterday, in honor of the Moxie Fab Blog-o-versary you were able to get a glimpse into our first template: Home Made © There will be more on that, here tomorrow 😀

Today you will get to see a peek of a sentiment set that Nichole designed, called Big & Bold Wishes, and the 2nd My Timeless Template © of the month , called Time for Take Out ©

Wish Big Set


Time for Take Out:

Well by the name of this template you can most likely guess that it was inspired by the original Chinese Take Out box. I say inspired by because my version is definitely created to be different! For example the way it is put together, the way the flap closure can be tied together, and the fun way the flap tucks perfectly into the top! Let’s not forget the handles are super adorable, and functional too! There are so many fabulous design possibilities! Let’s not forget the size is super too! You get the standard size and Pretty Petite version for ONE price.

 You can package up a variety of items. The receiver of anything presented in this amazing template will by dying to take out, whatever you took the time to package inside!


Just look how cute the standard, and Pretty Petite version are together, each made in contrasting colors 😀

Now this stamp set has a few “Big & Bold” sentiments, accompanied by some smaller companion sentiments to match!

I used one of the sentiments “It’s gonna be your best birthday yet!” and curved it to fit my handle of the Time for Take Out © Template. Its so easy to do, and really dresses it up.


The front flaps are tired together with dark chocolate ribbon, colored with copic’s to match!!

I decided to accent this with the cupcake from the Anniversary set: Everyday Classics. This set is not available for purchase, but I had to use it because the cupcake just called out to me 😀

Now onto the closure


The cut out flap inserts into the slot in the top.


Open up the handles and WOW! Perfect presentation for those treat-lets.
