Recent Projects

Hi all. Sorry I have been gone for so long but I am ready to show you some of the projects I have been working on. All of them were submitted to the PTI Guest Star Stamper for the month of September. I was lucky enough to get an honorable mention for my timeless template submission. So happy for that. If you would like to see the blog post announcing the winners and honorable mentions, CLICK HERE.

This picture above was my honorable mention win. There are templates you can purchase every month from Papertrey Ink and I really loved the templates for these "tucked away" boxes. Actually there is a large template for these boxes and a small one, I just decided to put the two on top of each other to create the look of a wedding cake. I thought to make these gift boxes as an idea for weddings and giving them to your bridesmaids and groomsmen for small gifts like jewelry and cufflinks and such.

I created this votive candle holder for the Autumn project category. This was one of my favorite projects because it was so easy to make and adds a lot of cuteness to this candle.
For this one we had to create a Halloween treat project. I decided to make a treat bag you could fill with goodies along with a wrapped candy bar and a card. I have always been so hesitant in the past to buy seasonal stamps, but I was so happy when I decided to go ahead and get some halloween and fall stamps from Papertrey Ink. I love everyone of them and plan on using them for Zach birthday goodies for his classmates and for the kids' Halloween parties. Should get a lot of use out of these stamps.
Here is the last project I made where we had to create a Thanksgiving project. I decided to make a nametag for a table setting. And along with this I made a "thankful for you" card. I thought it would be kind of cute to have these at the dinner table for a family Thanksgiving. Everyone could pass their cards around and inside the card we would write down why we are thankful for that person and it could be a keepsake for them to take home and look at whenever they want.

  1. Ok! I just have to say All OF THESE are so amazing Julie! Love it! Congrats on the HM! I really adore those are enabling me big time to get that template, had my eye on it for awhile, but haven't purchased it. The votive is very creative! You really put some extra sparkle into it by surrounding the entire candle!
