Get a Handle on It

I was excited to see that Nichole mentioned in her post that I would be a permanent fixture on the "My Timeless Template" design team for Papertrey Ink. You can check out previous month's templates here. I wasn't sure if I could let the cat out of the bag yet, so I didn't say a word. I was equally excited to accept this position and can I just say I am in love? Lauren does such an amazing job each month with her amazing templates. This month isn't any different. One of the two templates this month is called "Get a Handle on It". I can only show you a *teaser*, but if you purchase the template this month, you can see my complete project, inside and out!

Don't fret that I am holding out on you! Tomorrow I will be showing you a full, detailed project with the second template that is equally amazing. Of course for my first *official* project, I had to use one of my picks, Green Thumb! This was one of those sets that was an immediate must have when it was released. It has made it's way onto many projects.


This month's "Get a Handle On It" template is so versatile. The size is perfect for so many things. I can see myself turning to it again and again. I really like the *play on words* with this template as well. I only showed a tiny bit of "the handle" but it is so fun and it is a great way to use those punches! You can check out what Lauren has done here. My mind has been racing with different ideas for using this template; cookies, candles, baby bibs, candy, cupcakes, etc. You all know how much I love to throw a party, so I have been thinking this template would be great for party favors. Remember my nests with chocolate eggs? This would be perfect! Stay tuned for my next post with the second template from this month's release! Thanks for fluttering by!
