Hi all!

Another fun day of peeks for you! I hope you are ready for me! LOL!

I’m excited to continue the countdown and share some MORE template ideas with you!

Milk Made © has had its share in the spotlight the last 2 days, so today I am going to focus on my other template called Pretty Petal Pocket ©! I seriously LOVE this one (I know I always say that, but I always mean it! LOL)

If you missed the details on that template, you can check out this post —>HERE! I have to say the purse I made totally rocked! LOL!

I am HOPING you will think that my next 2 project do too!

Now this idea is SO perfect for a cheer up gift, Bridal/Baby shower, or showering someone with love, thoughts, prayers…..you get the idea!

Rain or Shine Umbrella

This was one of those AH! HA! moments!!

I suddenly realized this was the PERFECT up-side-down umbrella!!

What do you think?

I’m seriously over the moon for this.

Rather than use the rounded handles for the template, I cut my own umbrella handle! I adhered it to the Pretty Petal Pocket  © front prior to adding my decorative layers.

DESIGN NOTE: I did also use a flat Popsicle style stick to the back of the umbrella handle, for more support!

What I did was used the decorative mat layer (included with the template) and made my umbrella pattern from the flower paper. I then used the Largest Petal layer (there is a large petal and smaller mat layer to the petal of the template) and cut my middle “umbrella” panel. I layered it onto the template, and trimmed off the excess petal. I then paper pierced around the edges.

Doesn’t it look so cute?

I then paper pieced the umbrella image from Scattered Showers set to look *just* like my large “umbrella”. I adhered it with a dimensional, onto my die cut tag! LOVE it.

Also, prior to assembling (and also to hide any printer lines if you decide to print direct on cardstock) I added some pretty patterned paper to match! Makes it look SO fancy! AND covers up the lines :D

Rain or Shine this is SURE to brighten up someones day!

Isn’ this SWEET?!

Gotta LOVE the versatility in ALL the My Timeless Templates ©! Each release I get waves of SO many ideas, but only have so much time to get things done and share, before it is time to move along :D

Best part about this one-I seriously whipped it up in like under 15 minutes! Kid you not :D

I just cut my greenery from Ripe Avocado cardstock, free hand, with scissors, using the red polka dot base and my guide for the greenery fitting! Easy Peasy!

Inside here are strawberry scented bath wash, body spray, body lotion and lip gloss! All regular size, tucked away perfectly!

I totally LOVE this. Just tied the handles together with my ribbon and flower :D

Now my tag was UBER quick. Another tag die cut :D

Just stamped the tag with the large strawberry from Green Thumb, then stamped my basket image from Vintage Picnic, onto kraft cardstock, then cut out, and layered! DONE!

I just thought this was one of those SIMPLY MADE, yet SUPER adorable creations, that are FAB for mass production!

Speaking fo which, people ALWAYS ask about using the My Timeless Templates © in classes. YES! You can use them!

Please read our terms and conditions section —-> HERE <—- #6 lists terms for class use!

Now that hard work is done! Just print and go! I wish I had these when I was a SU! Demo years ago!

Now as for use in classes- I use to make my customers go through the hassle of measuring and scoring everything! I always loved boxes, so we did MANY!! When you have NEW stampers (especially) or a large class setting, then you know how hard it can be to keep everyone on the same step and NOT get confused! Now you can say-Cut your template out on the solid lines, score on the dotted lines, then we will decorate :D Gotta love that! It shows them that ANYONE can make gift packaging and stamping can be made EASY!

Our idea catalog also comes with 5 exclusive ideas, with full color photos, supply list and detailed instructions! YEAH!!
