My Time Template Challenge

It's Saturday, so it's another My Time to Create Challenge. Today we have template challenge for you. This is the inspiration Lauren gave us for the template challenge. You can use any of the My Timeless Templates for this challenge. Here's a peek at what some of the My Time DT has done. Now here's what I did. I used one of Lauren's newest templates called Milk Made. This template comes in two different sizes, and I used the smaller of the two for this project. So I have to admit, I love the template, but I'm not thrilled with my end result. I'm going to show you another I did a while back with these same colors that I like much better. Here I used SU's basic gray, baja breeze, and Urban Garden retired dp. I added kiwi kiss satin ribbon, some prima flowers, and a button. I didn't do any stamping on this. If it didn't take me so long to figure out what I was going to do, it would only have taken me about 30 minutes to pull this together! I did another one today (that I'll share in tomorrow's post) that I did right before I went to a 40th birthday party. So simple and quick to create! I'm going to a party today at our friends' house, and I think I'll add some Kisses inside this one and give it to them as a hostess gift. I have to say that the petite size of this is so cute!

Now here is one I did in February that I just loved. I followed a video that Lauren did to create it. You can read the original post
here, but I'll show the pictures again here.When Lauren created her project, I just drooled all over it! And when she made the video to show how to do this, I just had to do one too! This one uses All Boxed Up and it was really an easy project.I used kiwi kiss, night of navy, baja breeze and sahara sand for my box colors and the base, and the Urban Garden dp and kiwi kiss satin ribbon. So you can really see how versatile these templates are. Wait until you see the one I'm posting tomorrow...I'm really in love with that one.

Ok, long post, I know, but you have to stop by the blogs of the My Time DT and see what they've created! Always awesome

Do you think you'll play along with our challenge this week? Pam is hosting today, so if you play, please link your project to Mr. Linky on her blog. If you post to SCS/PCP, please use the key word MTTC04 so we can find it! Thanks for stopping in today, and please stop by tomorrow for more! Have a great weekend!

Lisa you are too hard on yourself - this is a GREAT gift set - I like the mixture of stripes and subtle pattern together. I have yet to make up milk made but it's UBER cute in your sample. I also love the one you did from before and I'll look forward to what you post tomorrow :-) I'm a template junkie *tee hee*

OH Lisa, you for sure were kidding when said you were not thrilled with the end result. Your challenge project is fabulous! and i particularly love the mixture of stripes and pattern together.
Good job!
Hugs and smiles :)

Lisa you silly goose! Both projects are beautiful! The urban garden hummingbird paper is too pretty to cover up and makes such a wonderful centerpiece to the milk maid template. But lucky you had a previous project in the same colors! Cool! And if you can promise bigger and better tomorrow, I'll be back! :)

Lisa Brown said...

Both sets are great. Lisa! Love those colors and both are darling gifts!

Tamara said...


I think this is really cute. I can see that perhaps the milk cartons need something to break up the patterned paper, but I really like your project.

Katie Cotton said...

oh i just love both of these! They are on my must buy list! :)

Cheryl said...

I think BOTH of these are pretty classy projects!
Great paper and colors!

Cat said...

Lisa, you did a great job on this challenge! I thought the colors were challenging to work with, especially the gray. I like the two patterns mixed together and that ribbon is fabulous!
