My Creative Time ~ August Stamp Release : BLOG HOP

Hello everyone!  WAHOOOOO!!!  What a week!  The Design Team did an AMAZING job don't you think?  Well, it's time for the best part...the My Creative Time ~ August Stamp Release : BLOG HOP!!!  You should have arrived here from the super talented 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.  This is such a great release, you definitely don't want to miss a thing!!

For my projects today, I am featuring the fabulous new MCT ~ Photobooth Stitched Die.  I'm probably dating myself a bit, but remember those super fun photobooths when we were little?  I think they even still have them in some places...fun...fun...fun!!!

Here is my first card:


This is a CAS (clean and simple) card, but if you love patterned paper (and who doesn't...lol) it was lots of fun to make!  The black cardstock is from Recollections.  The solid orange and all of the fun patterned papers are from the Authentique ~ Thrilling collection.  All I did was cut out the MCT ~ Photobooth Stitched Die four times.  Then I used all different papers from this collection for the inside squares.  I put the whole thing on pop dots for dimension.


I cut out the label using the MCT ~ Vintage Stitched Label Dies.  The "Happy Halloween" is from the brand new MCT ~ Fright Night.  The ink is black ~ Ranger Archival Ink.

Here is a different look using just one cut out of the die:


For this card, the black and the red cardstock are from Recollections.  And all of the cool patterned papers are from the Authentique ~ Irresistible collection.  The pretty bow is made with seam binding ribbon from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.  And the heart gem in the middle is from my stash.


I cut the middle piece using the MCT ~ Photobooth Stitched Die.  For the scene on the inside pieces, I used the MCT ~ We Are Family.  I put the whole piece on pop dots for dimension.  Both of the sentiments are from the MCT ~ My One and Only.  The inks are Black ~ Ranger Archival Ink and Vermillion ~ Ranger Archival Ink.

I hope you loved both looks.  This new MCT ~ Photobooth Stitched Die is AWESOME, along with the whole entire collection...You are gonna LOVE IT!!!!!!

Here is my first card (one of my all time favorites I think!!!):


Isn't it pretty?  I did my best to channel my inner Nikki (the background queen) and Emma (for her love of kraft cardstock).  How do you think I did???  All of the cardstock is from Paper Trey Ink.  Can you guess how many stamp sets I used for all of the different "you" stamps?  I used 10!!!  Here they are:  MCT ~ Card Sentiments, MCT ~ Floral Sentiments, MCT ~ I'm Here For You Rain or Shine, MCT ~ It's All About You, MCT ~ Small Talk, MCT ~ So Grateful For You, MCT ~ Things I Love, MCT ~ Treasured Moments, MCT ~ Vintage Sentiments, and MCT ~ You Are Perk-fect.  WOW!!!  I heat embossed them all using Versamark ~ Watermark Ink and Clear ~ Stampendous Embossing Powder.


For the center piece, I used the MCT ~ XL Label Die & the MCT ~ Stitched XL Label Die.  The beautiful sentiment in the center is from the brand new MCT ~ Girls' Night Out.

This is another fun 6x6 card.  The card base is made with Bazzill cardstock  The gray cardstock is from Recollections.  The fun patterned paper is from the We R Memory Keepers ~ Bewitched collection.  And then I used some clear acetate for the drinking glasses.


To create the white label for the title at the top, I used the MCT ~ Stitched Journal Die.  To make it fit the sentiment, I used Emma's technique for making it longer in the Cuttlebug.  The sentiment is from the brand new MCT ~ Some Days Simply Require.  To cut all of the drinking glasses and the fun little olive toothpick thingy, I used the brand new MCT ~ Cocktail Party Stitched Dies. The "Drink at your own risk!" sentiment is from the brand new MCT ~ Some Days Simply Require.

Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Challenge. #13-34 : Just Cards - Sympathy

Hello everyone! It's time for the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Challenge #13-34 : Just Cards - Sympathy.  The guidelines for this challenge: Create a card using a Sympathy theme.

Now you all know that Peachy Keen Stamps has some of the cutest stamps ever, but they also have some very beautiful and thoughtful stamps as well.


All of the cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.  For the background, I embossed it with the Swiss Dots ~ Cuttlebug Embossing Folder.


These beautiful shapes are cut with the MCT ~ XL Label Die & the MCT ~ Stitched XL Lable Die.  The flowers are from the PKS ~ Say It With Flowers.  I stamped them with Tuxedo Black ~ Memento Ink and colored them in the Copic ~ Sketch Markers.  The label is cut with the MCT ~ Vintage Stitched Label Dies.  The sentiment is from the PKS ~ Howling Puppy.


I wanted to show you how I did something a little different this time.  I used the MCT ~ XL Label Die to cut the shape out of the front of the card.  Then, I actually adhered the other piece to the inside of the card using pop dots.  That way, it pops out through the front when you close the card.  Pretty cool huh?


Well that's it for me today.  Make sure you head on over to the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  I hope you enter the challenge this week!!  I can't wait to see what you all make!!  Have a great day!  I will see you all again soon.

My Creative Time ~ Designer Challenge : Cathryn

Hello everyone!  It's time for another "Designer Challenge" with My Creative Time.  This time our host is the wonderful Miss Cathryn and the guidelines for her challenge:  Make a card or 3D project for Back to School (or if you don't have anyone going back to school - make a little something encouraging to slip into a back pack, lunch bag or briefcase).  


When I was little, I absolutely LOVED "back to school" time.  And my favorite part of school...reading!!!  I think I read every single Nancy Drew book...more than once!!  lol  So based on that, I decided to make some fun little bookmarks.  Both of these are made with the MCT ~ Just Tag Dies.


The solid colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.  The patterned paper at the bottom is from the Echo Park ~ Paper & Glue stack.  The ric rac is from my stash.  I cut the apple and little bookworm with my Cameo and a file from the Silhouette Online Store.  The face is from the PKS ~ Erkle & Merkle Face Assortment.  The little star burst shape in the center of the apple is cut with a die from the MCT ~ Build A Banner Kit.  And the "A+ Student" is from the MCT ~ My Teacher Rocks.  At the top of the tag is another stamp from the MCT ~ My Teacher Rocks.  There are actually a couple more items to check off on the stamp, but I taped those off to only show the reading one.


I think this one is my favorite, because I just love love love owls!!!  The patterned papers for the tag are from the Die Cuts With A View ~ Edumacation stack.  The paper for the owl is from Paper Trey Ink.  I cut the owl with my Cameo and a file from the Silhouette Online Store.  The cute little face is from the PKS ~ Critter Faces.  The sentiments at the bottom are once again from the MCT ~ My Teacher Rocks.  And the star burst is from the MCT ~ Build A Banner Kit.  The inks are black ~ Ranger Archival Ink and Vermillion ~ Ranger Archival Ink.


Well that's it for me today.  Hope you like my cute little bookmarks.  Sorry my post got all messed up this morning and was so late.  Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  I hope you all have time to enter the challenge!!!  I can't wait to see what you all make!!  Have a great day!  See you again tomorrow.

My Creative Time ~ "Scrapping the Little Things"

Hello everyone!  It's time for another "Scrapping the Little Things" with My Creative Time.  For those of you who may be new to this, it's when we make Project Life, Smash Book or any other type of layouts.

I'm back with another layout for my ABC Book.  I'm using the 6x8 Simple Stories ~ SN@P Binder.  And today I'm doing the letter "Dd".


All of the fun patterned papers are from the Simple Stories ~ Urban Traveler collection.  The yellow cardstock is from Recollections.  And the kraft cardstock is from Paper Trey Ink.  The "Dd" and the donuts are cut files from PPbN Designs.

Here are closer shots of both pages:



Another awesome paper collection by Simple Stories!  Can't wait for the new "Say Cheese" one!!!


The bingo card on the left is cut from a big 12x12 sheet of them in this paper collection...I just chose the one with a word that started with "d".  The cute little doggie is from the PKS ~ August 2013 : Kit of the Month. The numbered piece on the right is also cut from this paper collection.  The domino is from the MCT ~ Game Night.  The daddy & daughter are from the MCT ~ We Are Family.  And all the words are stamped with the alphabet stamps from the MCT ~ Just Simply Live.


I cut the blue piece in the background with the MCT ~ Stitched Journal Die.  The fun arrows are from the MCT ~ Stitched Capture Frame & Arrow Dies.  The little stitched circles are from the MCT ~ Build A Banner Kit. The alphabet is from the MCT ~ Circle Font.  And the cute little duckies are from the PKS ~ Duck with Egg : Cottage Cutz Dies.


The "Dd" and the donuts are cut with my Cameo and a file from PPbN Designs.  If you look closely, you can see that I used some Glossy Accents for the frosting on the donuts.  The word "donuts" is cut with the MCT ~ Lowercase Fun Dies.


The cute little dinosaur is from the MCT ~ All Around Everything.  I cut the beautiful doily with the MCT ~ Stitched Doily Die.  And the flower is cut with the MCT ~ Stitched Daisy Die and MCT ~ Stitched Leaves. And once again, all the words are stamped with the alphabet stamps from the MCT ~ Just Simply Live.


So were you counting????  I used a total of 12 ~ My Creative Time products!!!  Woot!  Woot!  I think that's a record for me!!!  :)

I hope you are enjoying my ABC Book.  It sure has been fun to make.  Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  I will see you all again soon.  Have a great day!
