PTI April Blog Hop!!!



Time for the April PTI Blog Hop! Yay! So much fun to see what everyone comes up with when faced with the same challenge. Here's this months challenge:

April Blog Hop

Lauren has already built an amazing array of printable templates in our store. Almost a reference library of sorts. Thousands of you have downloaded these amazing resources and have expressed how much you love them! Now's your chance to show us what you can do with them! Your challenge is to create a project using one of the Timeless Templates, any one of your choice. If you haven't tried them yet, there are some available for free
HERE. Get really creative and put a new spin on one of the more basic designs. Use this as an opportunity to make a gift for someone special, just because. This would be the perfect opportunity to get out one of those new stamp sets that have yet to see ink! Have fun and play! We look forward to seeing your results!


I decided to use the purse template to make a Mother's Day package. Great to fill with a little gift or candy. I like to put a little different spin of my own on any template I use, so for this one I decided to use acetate for the main purse portion and added a cute scallop border to the front flap.



Thanks for stopping! Hope I provided some with inspiration! :) Can't wait to see what everyone else came up with!
Hugs - Kelly

Paper: PTI; white, Ocean Tides, Sweet Blush

  9. Kelly this is totally adorable - I LOVE that you did the base in clear - how cool is that? Hey - how do you cut that opening for the latch? I used magnets in mine but wondered how I would cut out that opening. Very cute.
