Hello everyone! Yay . . . it's that time of month again! It's time for the My Creative Time ~ May 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. But before the big reveal, Emma and the MCT ~ Design Team create some fabulous new projects to show you all the different things you can do with these super terrific new goodies. And this month . . . I think you're gonna need to sit down for this one . . . because this release ROCKS!!! Are you ready??? Here we go . . .
For Day 1 of Sneak Peek Week, we are all showcasing a super funny new set called: What's Growing On? Not only does this set have some silly sentiments, but it has four fun dies as well! I am also using the brand new Tag Dies (a TOTAL MUST HAVE!!).
For all of you that have kids in college, you know that this is a tough time of year. They're cramming for finals, getting ready to come home for the summer and typically have run out of money! LOL So I decided to make a fun little care package that could get any student through the last few weeks. This one is for a girl, but it can easily be tailored for a boy by changing the colors and treats inside.
How fun is that? I tried to get a few favorites in there, as well as some good old college standbys (like Ramen and Mac-n-Cheese. Ahhhh what memories...lol). You might be wondering why in the world there isn't any chocolate in there . . . well - I live in Arizona - and chocolate doesn't travel too well in 100 degree weather. ;)
Ok, let's start with the funniest part. My tag was made with the brand new My Creative Time ~ Tag Dies. YOU ARE SOOOO GONNA WANT THESE!! They are just perfect! I actually cut the tag out twice - once with some chipboard and then again with this pretty pink paper which is from Doodlebug Design ~ Petite Prints. I thought it would need to be a little sturdy with the cute pink razor attached to it. At the top of the tag is some pretty Celebrate It ~ Occasions Tull-eee. Here's a closer shot so you can truly appreciate how funny this is:
The hilarious "Hope you're be-shaving yourself" is from the brand new My Creative Time ~ What's Growin' On? stamp set. Underneath the sentiment is an EK-Success ~ Sticko happy face sticker. Then all the way at the bottom of the tag: the "Love" is from the My Creative Time ~ Inspiring Words stamp set. And the "Mom" is from the My Creative Time ~ Mom You Rock stamp set. The ink is black ~ Ranger Archival Ink.
Here's a shot of some of the goodies. All the way in the back are some Mother's Circus Animal cookies...yum!!! Then in front of that is some Ramen (you know - I have not eaten that since my very last day of college - 20 years ago!!!). Of course there is some Kraft Mac-n-Cheese (I could eat that all day long!!) It's hard to see in this picture, but there is a little white shower puff in the center. Then off to the right are some Goldfish crackers and a little mani/pedi tool set. In the center is a little baggie filled with watermelon Jolly Ranchers. Off to the left of that is some girlie shaving cream And then my favorite part - a tube filled with quarters (you can never have enough quarters when doing your laundry in college!) :) The pretty little bow at the top of the quarters tube is made with Celebrate It ~ Sheer Creations Ribbon.
For some extra love and support, I added these good luck wishes. The label was cut with the My Creative Time ~ Curly Label Die. The border is stamped with the border stamp in the My Creative Time ~ Inspiring Words Accents stamp set. The ink is black ~ Ranger Archival Ink. The sentiment I printed out from my computer. The pretty pink ribbon around the basket is from Celebrate It ~ 360.
So what do you think? Like I said earlier, I think it can be easily adapted into a more masculine version by maybe putting in some beef jerky, male shaving cream, or maybe one of those plug in air fresheners, because you know how bad their dorm room stinks!!! P-U!!! ;) LOL
