I’ve been playing this week with some templates and tutorials I got from Lauren Meader at Paper Trey Ink in her Timeless Templates range. She has some very good templates there and they all come with full colour ideas for the templates with lots of ideas and designs with them with full instructions and all for just US$5 – bargain in my book!

Here is a set I made using the “Get a Handle on it” template.


How sweet is this little set? I’ve just printed the templates out onto whisper white cardstock and stamped it in the Soft Subtles using the new Soft Summer stamp set that will be in the upcoming Spring Mini Catalogue.

GetAHandleBoxThis great little box is 8.5cm square so you could use it for lots of different gifts and it allows you to tailor it for different peoples’ likes and desires.

You could fill it with ….

      • candle
      • chocolatles
  • stamps
  • coffee
  • hot chocolate mix
  • small mug
  • cupcake
  • muffin
  • cookies
  • jewellry
  • embellishments

SoftSummerCardNow I have made this for a special friend so I’m hoping she will like this little box and whats inside!

Here is a small gift card to go with the gift.

I’ve done the white panel the same as the box and adhered it onto Certainly Celery. The oval sentiment is from All Oval stamp set – another great set from the upcoming Spring Mini Catalogue. I’ve used my Stampin Write Markers to colour the stamp direct onto the rubber and then stamped it onto whisper white and punched it out using the large oval punch. The scallop oval you see here will also be available from the Spring Mini Catalogue.

Email or ring me to put your name down on my mailing list for the Spring Mini Catalogue for when I post them out over the next couple of weeks.

HOpe you like this little set and if you’d like to make one of these then please dont hesitate to contact me for further details on this class.



  1. Aren’t these boxes just fabulous? I have this template too and just love it. I love how you have stamped the boxes, the colours are so nice and pretty. The whole set is just lovely and I’m sure your friend is going to love it 🙂
