Hello everyone! It's my favorite time of the month . . . it's time for the My Creative Time ~ April Product Release! For those of you who may be new to this, Emma with My Creative Time releases her newest stamps/dies during the 3rd week of the month - usually on Thursday or Friday. But before the big reveal, Emma and the MCT ~ Design Team create some fabulous new projects and show you some sneaky peeks to give you an idea of all the different things you can do with these fabulous new products. Then at the end of the week, Emma will reveal the new release in her video for that day, then we have a super fun blog hop and of course there are giveaways!!! So are you ready? Let's get this Sneak Peek Week started!!!!!
Ok, for Day 1 of Sneak Peek Week we are all showcasing two super fun sets that many of you have been asking for: All Around Everything & All Around Everything Accessories. There are 20 (that's right 20!) different designs in each of these sets!!! You are gonna love it!! For my projects today, I used only 2 out of the 20.
So I decided to switch things up a bit by making a fun 6x6 layout. All of the papers are from the Authentique ~ Loyal Collection 6x6 paper pad. This is a great bunch of papers for those masculine projects.
This cute little embellie is made using the My Creative Time ~ Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies. As always, these "All Around" stamp sets fit perfectly inside the circle die. I just LOVE how Emma always co-ordinates her products to work so well with each other. The "Happy Father's Day" sentiment is from this soon to be released All Around Everything stamp set. And the fun little ties are from the other soon to be released All Around Everything Accessories stamp set. (** just a little note - there are actually 3 ties in the image, but I only wanted to use two - so I masked one off when stamping). The ink is black ~ Ranger Archival Ink. And I used Copic ~ Sketch Markers to color in the ties. I also used some pop dots to give the whole thing a little dimension. The fun fibers are from my stash.
This super sweet sentiment is from the My Creative Time ~ You're My Best Buddy stamp set. The ink is black ~ Ranger Archival Ink.
Now, I couldn't do a Father's Day layout without also doing a Mother's Day layout . . . LOL.
The design is the same, a 6x6 layout, with just different papers and a different color scheme. All of the pretty papers are from the My Minds Eye ~ A Beautiful Life 6x6 paper pad.
This pretty embellie is once again made with the My Creative Time ~ Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies. The "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment is from the All Around Everything stamp set. And the pretty little tulip is from the All Around Everything Accessories stamp set. The ink is black ~ Ranger Archival Ink. I colored in the tulip with Copic ~ Sketch Markers. The ribbon is Celebrate It ~ 360.
This neat sentiment is from the My Creative Time ~ Mom You Rock stamp set. The ink is black ~ Ranger Archival Ink.
I hope you like my cute little 6x6 layouts. I wanted to show you how you can use these stamps for more than just cards. I think they turned out great! And as a little bonus . . . if you would like to win one of these layouts today ~ just tell me which one you would like to have in your comment and I will draw a winner for each layout this Sunday. ;)
