Lauren is sending out a challenge for anyone to use one of her Timeless Templates and design a gift set using a Bath and Body Works product as the inspiration piece. The challenge is to use that inspiration and create your own unique packaging for a gift. Mine uses the Desktop Organizer and a gift set of four perfumed oils from Bath and Body Works. I also used PTInk's clear cardstock as a cover and I stamped flowers on it using Stazon Jet Black ink. The pattern paper is from a glitter stack I got at HL. I made an accordion flower and a gift tag using a Big Shot Die. Check out the other entries on Lauren's blog.

Over at JulieBuhler's blog, she did a tu-tor for a cute mini purse. It opens in the front and you can put a little note there as well as a small notecard or candy inside.
Another cute idea came from Kelly Lunceford's blog: It a a matchbox that can be decorated with a cute accordion flower that she also shows how to do. So even though I have been blog hopping as it seems, I still feel like I'm in a creative fog of sorts. Until tomorrow.
What is Blogger's block? I just penned that term to describe the fog that I'm in right now. What is a blogger to do? Who can help me out of this slump? Anyone want to extend a hand? Well I managed this morning to pull off one project. While blog jumping, I came upon Roxy's blog:stampingwithroxy and she then referred everyone who stopped by to Heather Scott's blog. The project is a double-pocket bag made from one 12-inch sheet of DP. It is really cute. The tut-tor is on Heather's blog as well as Roxy's. Check it out:
