Tonight is Papertrey's big monthly Blog Hop and I have been looking forward to it for a few weeks now!  This month's challenge was to show us your best use of one of our exclusive Timeless Templates.  Have you tried them yet?  Customers have been giving us SO much amazing feedback about them and now anxiously await the two new templates we release each and every month!

If you want to play along tonight and want to see what everyone's talking about, you can download  the FREE trial version, Recipe Wrap-up, that we have available on our website HERE.  One of the cool things about the templates is the five exclusive project ideas that are included with each one.  They contain beautiful, full-color photographs, complete supply lists and instructions.  Plus each of the Design Team Members initial thoughts of the template and what else they are thinking about doing with them in the future. Just all around an amazing resource that many have already found to be indispensable!

To help everyone get warmed up for tonight, I thought I would share some of my personal projects that I have created using Lauren's Timeless Templates!  You can click on the link underneath each project to be directed to the original blog post and complete details!

Desktop organizer

This quick & easy use of the Desktop Organizer template allowed me to create a very sophisticated gift that only costs $3.40 in supplies to create!

Basket basics

Basket Basics uses an amazingly quick and easy technique that Lauren developed to weave your own paper basket.  With the one I created HERE, I left the handle off for a different take on it.  You could even add two handles, one on each side as an additional option.  Wouldn't it be pretty woven from our linen vellum cardstock too?

Purse-onality Clutch

Everyone knows that purse's are a girl's best friend!  Our Purse-onality Clutch template is perfect for SO many uses & occassions!  For my project HERE, I found that it holds eight Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares perfectly.  The little custom wraps I made with special birthday wishes added to each one makes a great little gift for someone special!

Filed with Flair
Create a unique, customizable card set that can all be stored in the popular Filed with Flair template.

From the Desk of

Using one of the newest templates, From the Desk of, to create a beautiful stationery gift.  An inexpensive project that is sure to leave a lasting impression.

Take along tote
I used the Take Along Tote template along with a few cupcake baking essentials here to create a fun cupcake kit for a birthday girl!

All boxed up

The All Boxed Up template is one of our most popular downloads.  One of my favorite projects of all time is THIS ONE, using a chic boutique style with a black & white basics color scheme.

I hope this little walk down memory lane inspired you to give these templates a try if you haven't done so yet!  OR even if you have used them already, maybe even remind you of a project you have been wanting to try your hand at.  Either way, take some time today to get creative with one of the many Timeless Templates including in our ever-expanding library!  And be sure to share your results at the Blog Hop tonight and have a change to win a free stamp set!  It is a great way to have fun on a Saturday night without having to leave the comfort of your own home (and in your pj's even!!!).  Hope to see you there!

    I’m trying to find a jumping point for the blog hop tonight – I just bought my first template (Filed with Flair) and I’m about to try another, but can’t decide which, so I was hoping this blog hop would tempt me with some awesome new ideas!

    eh gah! Gone for the weekend and I missed the Blog Hop. I have to say even though I know that you are working hard on all of the new eye candy with new stamps, colors, and templates, I MISS my Nichole Heady fix when nothing new is on your blog! 😉 You ALWAYS provide such amazing inspiration; your projects are so well designed and professional looking. Thanks for today’s PTI/NH fix!
