An Exciting Announcement - and some blog candy...

EDITED TO ADD WINNERS!!

Random.org chose the following numbers:

#12 - Elise

and

#22 - Betty

please e-mail me at cuccicoo1002@yahoo.com so I can arrange for your GC!! Congratulations Ladies!!!


Hi all ~
Hope you're off to the start of a great day! I know I am. I'm honored to have been chosen to participate on Lauren Meader's My Time To Create Design Team. I'm looking forward to getting to know the other ladies on the team some more, as well as working with Lauren on her wonderful challenges! Thank you Lauren for thinking I'm worthy ;)

I figured I'd share a Timeless Template project with you. This is the Desktop Organizer template. It's slightly tweaked, as I made the overhang a little shorter, so you could see more of what is in the box. I stamped the sides before the box was assembled. I just am loving the Beyond Basic Borders and New Leaf CS, ink and ribbon right now...can you tell? *wink*
I'm making these for my 3 nieces that are all making their First Holy Communion this Spring. Each one is a little different looks-wise, but this is the packaging. I had originally made a similar project for a friend, but figured I'd post this one, now that I have the right ribbon ;)

I love Lauren's templates, they make everything so EASY! I've got a category on my sidebar just for projects with her templates, take a peek, you'll see what I mean!

Congratulations to my fellow team members, I'm looking forward to working with you!

Now...onto the blog candy...leave me a comment with your favorite template of Lauren's, or one that you'd like to try, and I will pick 2 random people to send a $5 PTI gift certificate to, to go and get another template to try! Comments will close at 11:59 pm EST Wednesday, April 29th, and the winner announced Thursday!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Supplies:
Stamps: Beyond Basic Borders
Ink: New Leaf, Fresh Snow
Paper: Shimmery White (SU!), New Leaf (PTI)
Accessories: New Leaf satin ribbon, glue dots

Congratulations! How exciting to be picked for Laurens design team! I love her timeless templates! I just bought "from the desk of" and it is sooo easy to do. I love all of her templates but the next one I want to get is the "take along tote" So so cute! Thanks for the chance to win! Im looking forward to seeing your creations!

Tracey - LOVE these boxed up gifts - how precious and special - I have not had time to post about My Time team yet - it will be so fun but I'm feeling intimidated by all the wonderfulness from the rest of the team. LOL Are we our own worst critics? I LOVE your blog name *tee hee* Looking forward to getting to know you better and be inspired together. Hugs n smiles.

Stampin' Pam said...

Oh yeah - I stopped in to say CONGRATULATIONS lol - got interrupted and lost that train of thought.

Kay said...

Congrats on being picked for Lauren's DT! The two templates I'd like to try the most are "Filed with Flair" and "Basket Basics". Everything I've seen created with those are just out of this world! I've just got to get brave enough to give them a try!

stampmiser said...

Very happy for you & the DT pick! I think my fave template is the File box one - the one with the curvy sides that you can put cards in. I plan to get that one (or WIN it!!) :)

I adore all the templates, I'd be hard pressed to choose one - but probably the take along tote.

Congratulations!
I saw your entry during the PTI blog hop and just loved your idea!
I don't have that particular template but your idea has really got me thinking about getting it.
Thanks again for sharing and I look forward to more of your creations!

Verda said...

I love all boxed up but I have to say that I really like to pair it with Filed with Flair.

Congratulations. It will be amazing to work with Lauren.

Kristin Bueter said...

What a great idea for your rosaries! I might have to CASE your project later to hold the rosary I'm making for my dad!!

CONGRATULATIONS on being selected to Lauren's Design Team! Your work is wonderful and I look forward to seeing your creations as a member of Lauren's team! Can't wait to get to know you better and work with you and the other gals on the team!

Sarah said...

Congrats, Tracey!
Lauren obviously made a very wise choice in picking you :-) I love what you have done with her templates. I especially love the "Reisens You Are A Great Couple" you did using the Purse-onality clutch template, as well as this one (desk organizer) for the necklace gift. Those have to be my two favorites. I have never tried one of Lauren's templates, but you are making me think I am really missing the boat. I love the things you have made!

Thanks for sharing your wonderful creativity (can't wait to see what you come up with in the future!) and for giving us a chance to win a template.

Molly B said...

YEA!!!!!! Congratulations! How cool is that?!? Can't wait to see all of the great stuff you do with Lauren. Great use of this template too, BTW! -Molly B

Deena said...

I love the Captured Card Case, and I am getting TONS of use out of the Get a Handle On It!

Congrats on getting chosen for Lauren's team!!

Side note - I also burned my leg on a motorcycle tail pipe, but I was about 12 at the time. My parents weren't home and my sister and I were freaking out!!! Now 18 years later the scar is very very faint.

Jenn Fontaine said...

So excited for you Tracey! It's about time! I have used two of the templates, and haven't tried the desk ones even though I will one day.

Heather said...

Congratulations!!! Your project is just beautiful! You always make such lovely gift items! I've never used one of Lauren's templates but the From the Desk of looks really cool.

Amy H said...

How EXCITING!!! I know you will do a great job & can't wait to see all your projects!!

I have a couple of Lauren's templates & LOVE them, but I want MORE. I really want the "from the desk of" & the Take along Tote.

McBetty said...

Oh Tracey!!!! I'm so excited!!!
Wow! Hurrah.
My favorite template is From the Desk Of.
Your neices are so fortunate to have you as their Aunt Tracey.

Renee V. said...

Tracey - This is so incredibly awesome! CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am so happy for you...
I'm not too surprised though - it was only a matter of time. Your projects rock.
I really like the 'From the desk of" template and the "Purse-sonality Clutch"
Congratulations again!

Courtney Baker said...

Congratulations girl. I think my favorite it filed with flair, but as of right now I don't have it yet!

Janet L. said...

Congrats on you appointment! I bet you'll love it and do some great things as usual. I really like the Timeless Templates. I think my fave is Purse-onality Clutch. Thanks for the chance to win a template!!

Teresa said...

Oh - I wish I had seen this sooner! My niece makes her Communion on Saturday and I picked a different gift for her - but this is so adorable and would have been perfect! There are a few of Lauren's templates I'd like to try - the Bun in the Oven and the File Box I think its called are two of them. Congrats on making the DT!! You will do fabulous!

Anonymous said...

Congratulations on making Lauren's time.. I'm sure you will enjoy creating with her. I like Basket Basics and Filing with Flair, tho all her templates are really useful. I am blown away by the things she DOES with all her templates!
