From the Desk Of...

As promised, here is a complete project using the second template that will be included in the April release. There was a question asked about yesterday's post wondering where the templates can be purchased. The template from yesterday and the one shown today will be available for purchase on the Papertrey Ink website starting on the night of the 14th at Midnight.


Today's "My Timeless Template" is called "From the Desk of". Isn't it cute? I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. Of course I was a little selfish with this one; I tailored and personalized it for myself. Everything I make is usually for someone else, I decided to make something I could keep. I recently purchased the Simple Stationery and the Fresh Alphabet sets, so I put them to good use on this one. I also used Heart Prints and Heart Prints Sentiments. I will also admit that I am a hoarder of all things Papertrey. It came in handy on this project, because I had a full pad of "Guidelines" pattern paper that I was able to use on this. I also had an unopened spool of Plum Pudding satin ribbon that was begging to be cut into.

This template is perfect for organizing mail or creating a stationery set for yourself or a friend. I love the two sections that make it easy to organize outgoing and incoming mail. I was tempted to make mine specifically for mail, but opted instead for something I could put in my bedroom for organization. I may be making another one in the near future for my mail.

The thing I love about these templates is how easy they are to put together. If you haven't ever purchased one before, they are really user friendly. Everything is marked where you need to cut and score. I knew if Lauren had anything to do with it, they would be amazing. I was right!


I will be sharing the rest of my Papertrey Ink projects using the brand new images on the 13th, so stay tuned. The new sets are darling and I can't wait to share my projects. I hope you all have a Happy Easter! Thanks for fluttering by!
