My First Timeless Template Creation




This is a first go using Lauren Meader's "From the Desk of" Timeless Template. Love it! The challenge was to create a template using a bath product as inspiration. My favorite is Sensual Amber by Bath and Body Works and I used that color scheme as inspiration for this project.


I wanted to make a note card set for our secretary (Administrative Assistant) at school for Administrative Professionals Dayand this is what I came up with. This went together so easily...can't wait to try it again. Sorry the photo is so dark....finished it last night about midnight and wanted to get a picture before I presented the gift.
The set includes 5 cards and envelopes, all different, but with the same sentiment, from a church hymn.
Let no one walk alone,
The journey makes us one.
I had the stamp custom made from Stampin' Up!...104540 Text Only Stamps - Classic, p. 149 of the current Idea Book and Catalog. The little bird image is from Fun and Fast Notes from Stampin' Up! and colored with Copics. The Designer Series Paper is the retired Autumn Vine from SU! and the template is constructed from Chocolate Chip Cardstock.
My friend at work was so appreciative...thanks to Lauren for a great template!
Thanks for stopping by today!---Lisa :)
