Isn't that brillant?! I love the idea and will definitely be trying this sometime. Be sure to check around her blog for all the templates, techniques and ideas that she has. You could spend hours just browsing the wealth of information that she has on her blog.
I hope to post another great idea in the next day or two. It's one of the those ideas that you think "Do I really want to share this with the world or keep it my own little secret?" But I do want to share it with my readers which I know are few but I do appreciate those of you who do come to see what I've been up to so I will pass on this golden nugget to you. Hmmmm....are you curious yet? : ) Have a wonder Memorial Day!

Here is a LO I did from a sketch off Simply Scrapping. It's sketch #15 and you can find all the sketch from Simply Scrapping HERE. I used My Minds Eye - Penny Lane paper - just the patterned paper also the "our family" title and paper flower on top. I loved this paper and had plenty left over so I made cards using the rest of it. I think I used up just about every last little scrap of it.
The sentiments - thanks a bunch, hi there and happy birthday all came from a package I got on clearance at Target in their card dept. They already had pop dots on them. I just rounded the corners and inked them. The colors went great with this paper and I didn't have to use any stamps on them. The Thank you card above is a 4x4 card and the Hi There below is a 3x3 card.On the happy birthday one below the bird also is part of the MME Penny Lane series. It is a clear acrylic piece. I backed it with the green paper and adhered it with glue dots behind the eye and on the tail so you can't even see how it is attached.
This last one is my favorite. I used Copics to color the image. I ended up totally screwing up the grass area. I still can't figure out out to make it look right. So I just put a big ole' flower on one side and the corner punch on the other. You would never now the icky mess that lies beneath. : ) The "thinking of you" was just a rub on that I had.

Below is a water bottle with Crystal Light packets. I put a whole box of the mixes in this pouch and HERE is the template I used. The only thing is that this template uses a scalloped card from SU for the front and I didn't have any of those. I ended up just making the front on my own. I used my Friskars punch to cut the scallops and then folded it down then just copied the measurements from the other piece to make it work. After I made these I found another tutorial to make these and this one is a little simpler and holds just one packet very nicely. HERE is the link for that one.
