My Creative Time ~ 30th Stamp & Die Release BLOG HOP

Hello everyone!  And welcome to the My Creative Time ~ 30th Stamp & Die Release!!!  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 projects today, I am featuring the brand new I'm A Lucky Girl.  


I couldn't help but make more than one project for today!  Emma's products are just too much fun don't you think?!


I cut this cute little pot of gold with my Cameo and a file from the Silhouette Online Store.  The patterned paper is from the Doodlebug Design ~ Petite Prints.  All of the solid colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink. The sparkly gold paper is from the DCWV ~ Glitzy Glitter Stack.  The fun hat is from the brand new MCT ~ I'm A Lucky Girl.  I cut the label with the MCT ~ Curly Label Die & MCT ~ Stitched Curly Label Die.  The perfect sentiment is from the MCT ~ I'm A Lucky Girl.  I added the bow with some of The Twinery ~ Gold Shimmer & Peapod Twine.  In the center, I added a little yellow rose from my LSS.


This simple card is 3.25 x 4.25.  All of the black and white cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.  The sparkly green and silver striped papers are from the DCWV ~ Glitzy Glitter Stack.  I used the MCT ~ Stitched 3x4 Journal Die to cut the base piece.  Then on top of that, I used the MCT ~ 4x4 Journal Die & More.  The neat sentiment is from the MCT ~ I'm A Lucky Girl.  And the 4 leaf clover is from the MCT ~ You're My Pot Of Gold.  I added a Doodlebug Jewel and The Twinery ~ Platinum Shimmer Twine.


I hope you like both of my St. Patrick's Day projects today!

My Creative Time ~ Day 4 Sneak Peeks : 30th Stamp & Die Release

Hello everyone!   It's Day 4 of Sneak Peaks for the My Creative Time ~ 30th Stamp & Die Release. And it's our last day of sneaks before the big reveal tomorrow!!!

For Day 4 of Sneak Peeks, we are showcasing two new sets: Fun Gift Pocket Sentiments and Tag Gift Pocket Die.


I made this cute little Easter gift card scene.  Hee!  All of the solid colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink. And the patterned papers are from the Doodlebug Design ~ Petite Prints.  The first thing I did on this card was use the MCT ~ Stitched 4x6 Journal Die to cut out the opening on the front of the card.  Then I used The Twinery ~ Lilac Twine to frame the border of the opening.  In the background, I used the cloud dies from the MCT ~ Fly Away With Me Dies.


Ok, add this new die to my "favorites" list!!!  This is the brand new MCT ~ Tag Gift Pocket Die.  Inside you can see the yummy Starbucks card!  ;)  One great new option...Emma created a little dollar amount stamp so that we can add in the gift card amount...woot woot!  That stamp is from the MCT ~ Fun Gift Pocket Sentiments. For the numbers, I used the MCT ~ Just Simply Live.  In the bottom left corner, I used the MCT ~ Square Stitched Goody Dies and the "Hello chickie" sentiment from the MCT ~ Hello Chickie!.  At the bottom of the card, I used the brand new MCT ~ Stitched Grass Die.


I used the MCT ~ Tag Gift Pocket Die again, but this time I filled it with Easter Eggs that I cut using the MCT ~ Hello Chickie!  I used the MCT ~ Just Simply Live to make the sign and the "Happy Easter" sentiment is from the MCT ~ Hello Chickie!.  I attached that to a little toothpick.  Then I cut the super cute little chickie with its egg and the little basket and bow, also from the MCT ~ Hello Chickie!.  Inside the basket, I put a chocolate bunny that I cut with the MCT ~ To My Best Peep.  I covered it with Glossy Accents to make it look chocolatey.  ;)  In the center of the bow, I added a Doodlebug Jewel.


I hope you like my little Easter scene here.  Kinda like an adult version of an Easter Basket!!!  ;)

For Day 3 of Sneak Peeks, we are all showcasing two new sets:  Hello Chickie! and Stitched Grass Die. This is a super fun new set for Easter and I just know that some of the Design Team Gals will make some super cute projects, so I decided to do something a little more formal...hope you like it.


This is a 5.5 x 5 card.  The white cardstock is from Paper Trey Ink.  The sparkly black and silver papers are from the DCWV ~ Glitzy Glitter Stack.  And the pretty patterned papers are from the DCWV ~ Forever & Always Stack.


The cross is cut using my Cameo and a file from the Silhouette Online Store.  The clouds at the bottom are cut with the MCT ~ Stitched Cartoon Cloud Dies.  And in the center, I used the MCT ~ Vintage Stitched Label Dies and a sentiment from the brand new MCT ~ Hello Chickie!.  On the inside is a sentiment that says "Have a blessed Easter", but I forgot to take a picture of that.


I hope you like it.  Just something a little different and a bit more formal for Easter.

My Creative Time ~ Day 2 Sneak Peeks : 30th Stamp & Die Release

Hello everyone!  And welcome to Day 2 of Sneak Peeks for the My Creative Time ~ 30th Stamp & Die Release!  Wasn't yesterday so much fun?!?!  Well let's get on with more!!!

For Day 2 of Sneak Peeks, we are all showcasing the set: I'm A Lucky Girl.


This wasn't the way I envisioned this card when I first started making it, but I kinda like the way it turned out. This is a standard A2 size card.  The white and the black cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.


In the bottom left corner of the card, I used the large heart die from the MCT ~ Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO Dies.  Then, on the inside of the card - through the heart opening - I stamped a sentiment and a cute little shamrock from the brand new MCT ~ I'm A Lucky Girl. I also added a little bow tied with The Twinery ~ Peapod Twine.


In the bottom left corner, I made a pile of gold with the tiny heart from the MCT ~ Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO Dies and DCWV ~ Glitzy Glitter cardstock.   I made the hat with the brand new MCT ~ I'm A Lucky Girl.  So cute!  All of the papers for the hat are from Paper Trey Ink.  And then I added a little gem from my stash.


To make a fun rainbow, I used the tiny heart from the MCT ~ Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO Dies and my favorite Doodlebug Design ~ Petite Prints paper.


In the upper right corner, I used the MCT ~ Vintage Stitched Label Dies and a sentiment from the MCT ~ I'm A Lucky Girl.


I hope you like my fun card for today!!!

My Creative Time ~ Day 1 Sneak Peeks : 30th Stamp & Die Release

Hello everyone!  It's time for the My Creative Time ~ 30th Stamp & Die Release!!!!  For those of you who may be new to this, it's when Emma and the Design Team show you some fabulous Sneak Peeks of the new release and then on Friday when the Release goes LIVE we have a super fun Blog Hop. Are you as excited as I am?!?!  Well let's get to it then!!!   :)

For Day 1 of Sneak Peeks, we are all showcasing 3 new sets:  Bracket Sentiments, Stitched Bracket Dies and Stitched Chevy Dies.

The minute I saw the new Bracket Dies, I just knew they would be perfect for scrapbooking!!!  So here is a fun layout for my Halloween Disneyland Book:


These pages are for my Simple Stories ~ 6x8 SN@P Binder.  The background paper is from the DCWV ~ Linen Closet Stack.    



All of the solid colors of cardstock, along with the white cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink, except for the light purple which is Recollections.


In the upper left corner, I used the MCT ~ Vintage Stitched Label Dies and a sentiment from the brand new MCT ~ Bracket Sentiments.  The red & yellow gems are from Queen & Co.  


All of my pictures are standard wallet size and I used the smaller of the two new MCT ~ Stitched Bracket Dies. I also used Versamark ~ Watermark Ink and Clear ~ Stampendous Embossing Powder to stamp the arrows on the die pieces.  **Now if you're like me, your brain might be hurting right about now...lol.  With the arrow stamps - the stamped arrows (the darker ones in my picture) will point "towards" the picture.  And the blank spaces (or lighter arrows) will be facing the opposite direction.  It took my brain several minutes to figure out this optical illusion...lol!!!


On each picture, I added a little label using the star burst die from the MCT ~ Build A Banner Kit.  And inside I stamped a word to describe the moment we had.  There are a lot of  "inside stories" going on with these two pages...but I will leave that for the journaling.  ;)


Finally, I used the arrow stamp from the MCT ~ Bracket Sentiments to just focus the attention onto each picture.  In the bottom right corner, I also used the MCT ~ Vintage Stitched Label Dies to add another little label for the "BEST DAY EVER!"  It really was our BEST Disney day EVER!!!  So much FUN!!!  Oh, and one more little detail - I used some Trendy Twine ~ Orange Licorice twine around the edges of both pages just to emphasize Halloween Time.

And here's a little bonus project:


This is a simple A2 size card. All of the red, white and black cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink. I used the brand new MCT ~ Stitched Chevy Dies for this fun card.  What I did was use the smallest of the chevy dies and cut 4 openings straight into the top white layer.  Notice Emma's pretty stitching on the outside AND inside of the arrows!!  Then I filled in the chevy openings with red and black chevy pieces.  Next, I used the heart die from the MCT ~ 100% Sweetness set to cut an opening into the white piece and then filled that in with a red heart cut with the same die.  The sentiment is from the MCT ~ Bracket Sentiments.  I used Versamark ~ Watermark Ink and White ~ Stampendous Embossing Powder.

My Creative Time ~ "Inspiration Wednesday"

Hello everyone!  It's time for "Inspiration Wednesday" with My Creative Time.  For those of you who may be new to this, it's when we make a project from a specific source of inspiration.  It could be a color, a picture, a tv show, anything at all really.

My inspiration was a beautiful bridal bouquet at a wedding that was full of gorgeous white roses:


Once again this is my favorite MCT ~ Embossed Gift Card Holder Die.  The patterned paper for the gift card holder and the pretty sparkly paper for the hearts are from the DCWV ~ Forever & Always Stack.  I cut the hearts using the MCT ~ 100% Sweetness.  The sentiment is from the MCT ~ More Gift Card Sentiments.  **Note that I created this sentiment combining two different stamps: "For Your Wedding Shower" & "Happy Grandparents Day".  The ink is Jet Black ~ Ranger Archival Ink.  I put the hearts on pop dots for dimension. The beautiful flowers are from my LSS.  And the bow is made with The Twinery ~ Platinum Shimmer Twine and the bling is a Doodlebug Design ~ Jewel.  

That's it.  Simple and pretty.  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.

"Happy Teddy Day"

Hello everyone and Happy Monday!  Lots of you wanted to see the finished product of my daddy's present so here you go.   :)


As many of you know, my sister and I are quite the Disney Nuts and these are our pictures from last week. Hee! So cute!!!  My daddy's birthday and Valentine's Day are one day apart so this was the perfect present. 


For the two photos in the upper right and left hand corners, I used the MCT ~ Scallop Die.  Then I adhered those with lots of pop dots for dimension.   If you look really close at my sister's picture, she is mailing our dad a card from Disneyland!!!  ;)


Then I used the heart die in the MCT ~ 100% Sweetness to cut out the Mickey pic.  And then I also added a little birthday tag.  I used the MCT ~ Square Stitched Goodie Dies.  And then I used the MCT ~ Beary Special Thoughts for the greeting.  ***Note that I used the "Happy Teddy Bear Day!" stamp and I actually cut it up....EEK....to make this specific sentiment.  The story behind it:  My daddy's name is Ted.  Hee!  Hence "Happy Teddy Day"!!!  Love it!!!


Well, I hope you love it as much as I do!  And the best part...my daddy thought it was GREAT!!!  :)  Have a great day everyone.  I will see you all again soon.

My Creative Time ~ "Whatever Wednesday"

Hello everyone!  It's time for "Whatever Wednesday" with My Creative Time.  For those of you who may be new to this it's when we make ANYTHING we want using MCT Products.  :)


This is a 5.5 x 5.5 card.  Not sure I like how it turned out, but it's something a little different I guess.  The white and the black cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.  All of the fun polka dot patterned papers are my favorite Doodlebug Design ~ Petite Prints.  All of the arrows are cut using the MCT ~ Stitched Capture Frame with Arrow Die.  The large hearts are stamped with the MCT ~ Happy Mail and the smaller hearts are stamped with the MCT ~ Build A Postcard.  The ink is Jet Black ~ Ranger Archival Ink.


In the center, I used the MCT ~ Scallop & Stitched Circle Die.  The sentiment is from the MCT ~ It's All About You.  I adhered that with some pop dots for dimension.  And if you look closely, you can also see that when I adhered the arrows, I did not put any adhesive on the arrow tips and I kinda bent those up a little for something a little different.


Well my creative friends, that's it for me today.  Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  And I know that I have totally been MIA lately...I promise to be back to normal soon.   ;)   Have a great day everyone!
