My Creative Time ~ April Stamp Release : BLOG HOP !!!

Hello everyone!  Are you ready for the grand finale???  It's time for the My Creative Time ~ April Stamp Release : BLOG HOP!  You should have arrived here from the super talented Miss Amy's blog. If not, then make sure you head back to My Creative Time so that you can start at the beginning with Emma.  You definitely don't want to miss a thing!!!

For my project today, I made a 12x12 scrapbook layout and put it in a frame for some fun Home Decor.


Isn't it so fun?  It's kinda like a little story board.  :)  I just love it!!  I used a total of 5 different MCT products.  All of the patterned papers and embellishments are from the Simple Stories ~ 24/7 collection. Let's take a closer look.



All of the cute little stamped images are from the brand new MCT ~ We Are Family stamp set.  The frames are cut with the frame die in the brand new MCT ~ Stitched Mini Frame & Arrow Dies.  The large arrows are cut with the arrow die in the brand new MCT ~ Stitched Capture Frame & Arrow Dies.  Underneath the frames is a strip of white cardstock.  The "We are family!" sentiment is from the brand new MCT ~ We Are Family stamp set.  The inks are black ~ Ranger Archival Ink and Rhubarb Stalk ~ Memento Ink.



Across the center of the layout, I used the MCT ~ XL Label Die to cut some cute little photo mats.  Once again, all of the cardstock and embellishments are from the Simple Stories ~ 24/7 collection.  And there is another strip with "We are family!" stamped across it as well.



These are more super cute family images from the MCT ~ We Are Family stamp set.  For the two with the little baby carriages, I also added the "Welcome Sweet Baby" circle sentiment from the MCT ~ All Around Everything stamp set.


I used some pop dots underneath a few of the frames, as well as some of the embellishments for fun dimension.  A super fun "boy meets girl" love story!  I love it!!!!
