Just the Girls Challenge Blog to use one of Lauren Meaders templates
I created this cute little gift box using one of Lauren Meader Timeless Templates. Lauren still has lots of templates over at PTI, but she just started her own site as well. Check out My Time Made Easy HERE. It was soooo easy! It came in 2 sizes and I made the smaller one. Basically I downloaded the template from PTI ($5). Then I double clicked on the file and it opened up into an Adobe Reader window. Then I printed it! I cut the pieces, adhered together, decorated the front! You have to use your own punch to create the hole in the handle, as you can see, I'm a little off center. But it was my first time, so I'm sure my next one will be better.
Stamps : FireCracker Designs by Pamela (FCD) Forgive Me set and Butter/Dragon fly set.
I created 3 mask using Elipse Masking "Tape" (it's not really tape, it's like a post it note with the sticky stuff over the entire back of it). I inked the stem/leaf portion of the stamps with VersaMagic Spanish Olive and then added Purple Hydrangea to the floral area. I stamped the same image repeatedly to create my garden, using the mask to prevent clutter and enable me to stamp them "on top of each other". I poped up a butterfly, added ribbon, and inked the edges. Really quick and easy.
Great design. I love the template and those flowers and that butterfly are awesome! Great colors! Thanks for playing along with us!
Gorgeous!! I always have intentions on using template but I never seem to actually use them. Thanks for the inspiration... I might actually use one now! LOL
Thanks for the inspiration Melisa! I actually downloaded the free template today, and hope to do the challenge! Great project! Your coloring is delightful - TFS!
Really pretty. Love the shades of lavender.
Melissa - great to see you on JUGS again - love this box - one of my faves! You did a great job with it - love the colors and the florals and the B-fly. Thanks for the shout out to Lauren's store too. Thanks for playing along with Just Us Girls!
What a pretty tote! I love that gorgeous purple satin and that butterfly just pops right off! Thanks so much for playing along with Just Us Girls template challenge! Hope to see you Saturday!
my goodness, that is one of the nicest uses of the Forgive Me set I've seen yet! LOVE the butterfly with it, and the colors are just gorgeous!
I really like this one Melisa - very striking with the purple and green together! I love the butterfly added and the ribbon tied around it!
It's gorgeous and I love this butterfly!
Very pretty, love you inking!
Beautiful Melisa - love the colors!
Very pretty project! Love the pretty colors and the flowers are wonderful. TFS
Melisa, that is drop-dead gorgeous!! I had to go look at that stamp set; I don't think I have seen anyone use the "weed" flower before. It looks terrific!! I agree with Pam - this is the nicest use of that stamp set to date! :o)
