My Creative Time ~ 31st Stamp & Die Release BLOG HOP

Hello everyone!  Are you ready for some fun?  Welcome to the My Creative Time ~ 31st Stamp & Die Release BLOG HOP!!!  You should have arrived here from the super talented Liz'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 am showcasing the brand new And Then Some.  And I decided to change things up a bit by doing a layout.


This is an 8x8 layout.  The patterned papers are from the DCWV ~ Everlasting Love Stack.  And all of the solid colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.


For this piece, I used the MCT ~ Stitched 3x4 Journal Die.  I used the "ME" & "YOU" stamp from the brand new MCT ~ And Then Some to emboss the background.  I cut the "&" with the super cool die in this new set and then embossed that with polka dots!!!  Woot!  Woot!  How fun is that?!?  I added a bow with hemp twine and then added a little flower to the center of that.  For a little pop of color, I used the smallest heart die in the MCT ~ Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO Dies.  In the background, you can see the two black photo mats.  I cut those with the MCT ~ 4x4 Journal Die & More and the MCT ~ Stitched 3x4 Journal Die.


I used the MCT ~ 4x4 Journal Die & More to make these little photo squares.  Then I added a peekaboo heart using the large heart from the MCT ~ Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO Dies.  On the heart, I embossed another set of "ME" & "YOU".


I  used the MCT ~ Square Stitched Good Dies to make these photo spots.  And I stamped the "ME" & "YOU" with Soft Brown ~ Hero Arts Shadow Ink.  The little heart is from the MCT ~ We Are Family and I stamped that with Vermillion ~ Ranger Archival Ink.  And for one more pop of color, I used the medium size heart from the MCT ~ Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO Dies.


I hope you liked my layout for today!  Now for the really good part...how about a giveaway?!?!
