My Time Template Challenge

Happy Saturday Everyone (or Happy Aloha Friday if you're here in Hawaii with me, since it's still Friday here as I post this!). Sorry I've been quiet this week. I've been hard at work on a very special project that I'll be able to tell you all about very soon.

But for now I'm here to share with you the latest My Time To Create Challenge!! This week we're doing a Template challenge - This week's challenge is to create a birthday gift using one of Lauren's fabulous My Timeless Template from Papertrey Ink (and incorporate the color purple or a butterfly somewhere in your project!).

I used the Get a Handle on It template to create some cute gift packaging for a gift certificate. I love using heavyweight Acrylic on these templates and then filling the package with fun stuff! (for this project I used PTI's Clearly Creative Cardstock). I just love how it turned out!!

Stamps: Big Bold Birthday (SU); Mega Mixed Messages (PTI)
Paper: Clearly Creative CS, Plum Pudding, White, Kraft CS (PTI)
Ink: Pale Plum, Pink Pirouette, Close to Cocoa (SU)
Accessories: Pink Pirouette ribbon, jumbo brads, scallop border punch (SU); hemp twine; Trio of Tags die (Spellbinders)

Be sure to stop by the other My Time to Create DT girls' blogs to check out all of their fun birthday creations.


Here's a peek at all of their fabulous projects:

If you'd like to play along with us this week, head on back to Lauren's blog and post a link to your project in the Mr. Linky on Saturday's Challenge post.

The Clearly Creative CS gives a completely different spin on all of the templates, I think. I love the way this turned out.

Jen I am SO wanting to try my acetate CS now for a template - it's a super fun way to package up - you did a great job and I'm so excited to see what it is that you are working on,...

I love this! After seeing Lauren's post earlier this week using clear cardstock I wanted to try it too. You really rocked this!

What a fun way to package a gift! I like the way you used the ribbon at the top to hold the top closed.
