Perfect Presentation release day!

Good morning!  Today brings us a new template called Top Notch.  This is an elegant box that can be dress up or dressed down to suit your needs!  I decided to go elegant with my project and pulled out my PTI Damask Designs set and some black polka dot paper.

  I made a paper flower with some sheet music that my friend and fellow DT member, Harriet gave me.  I cut out the flower using my Papertrey Ink Delightful Dahlia dies and a circle nestabilitie die.  I took my scissors to the circle die and cut around the edge to make it uneven.  I then folded them all up to get them all nice and crinkled.  Next, I sprayed them heavily with Pearl Glimmer Mist (my newest addiction!) and toasted them with my heat gun.  The heat gun gave the flowers an aged look and stiffened them a bit.

The Top Notch template is 4x3x1.75with a neat little tuck in flap to keep the box closed.  The flap may be a tight fit at first, so you you need to wiggle it carefully to get it in.  After that, it should slide in and out nicely. This template also includes a bonus V shaped card front template so you can make a matching card to go with your box. 

The sentimet comes from the stamp set Just a Note from Wplus9 Design Studio.  The font is gorgeous!

This next project was a template that was released earlier this month and is called Spring Basket.  I made this to show you that you can leave off the picket fence and even the basket handle and still have a really cute design.  I used supplies from Papertrey Ink: Delightful Dahlia stamps and dies, Pretty pastel paper, Luck of the Irish stamp set, plum pudding cardstock and ribbon.

Most of the templates are available in PDF, GSD and SVG. 
 GSD and SVG are for those who have electronic cutting machines such as Silhouette/Wishblade/Craft Robo or Cricut with the software necessary to cut SVG files. 
 If you do not have an electronic cutter you will want the PDF version.

I hope you will check out the awesome design team:

I'll see you back here tomorrow for the Sketch Girl challenge!  Thanks and have a wonderful day!
