PTI Blog Hop





I was sooo excited when I saw the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge this month-use a My Timeless Template, by Lauren Meader. I have purchased one and I LOVE it. It is the All Boxed Up template and it makes the cutest little gift set for cards. Today is the 25th and I just so happened to have a baby shower to attend this afternoon. So I got a two-fer with this one. I love to give my friends a stack of handmade cards they can use as thank-you notes once the baby arrives. So here's what I did. I used kraft, Spring Moss and Aqua Mist with accents of Chocolate Chip for my color pallet. I made a total of 8 cards and matching envelopes with the cute little turtle from Pond Life (I know, you all probably think this is the only PTI set I own, LOL! TRUST me, I own many, I just don't have any of the baby sets. Use what you got, right?). I also used my trusty Polka Dot Basics to make giant vintage cream dots on my cards and the box.


I made 4 cards with Aqua Mist as my base and 4 with Spring Moss as my base, the layout is the same for all 8 cards. Once I had my design, this project really came together so fast. If I had to guess, I'd say it took me an hour, maybe a little longer. Not bad if you ask me! I know my girlfriend is just going to squeal when she sees these and I'll pat myself on the back for another job well done! Man, I love this craft :) Can't wait to see all the wonderful projects created with Lauren's templates. They really are worth the $5 and an instant upload. Happy Hoppin'! Hugs, Lisa
