My Creative Time ~ "Made In Minutes"

Hello everyone!  It's time for another "Made In Minutes" with My Creative Time.  For those of you who may be new to this, it's when we create a project within 15-20 minutes.  Yesterday was my mom's birthday and she really wanted a Michael Kors purse.  So we all pitched in to get one for her.  And here is the fun tag I created to add to the birthday bag:


All of the different colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.  I cut the tag using the MCT ~ Tag Dies.  This sassy little lady and her shopping bag/purse are cut with the MCT ~ Classy Girl & Furbaby Dies & the MCT ~ Classy Girl Accessories.  The sentiment at the bottom is stamped with the MCT ~ Classy & Fabulous.  At the top, I added another little tag using the MCT ~ Teeny Tag Greetings.  Then I added some May Arts ~ chevron ribbon and tied a bow with some hemp twine.  Oh, and there is a little red heart gem for just a touch of bling.  :)


Here is the fun little tag on the birthday bag.  Hope she likes it!!!


Well 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.  I will see you all again soon.  Have a GREAT day!

My Creative Time ~ "Try Me Tuesday"

Hello everyone!  It's time for another "Try Me Tuesday" with My Creative Time.  For those of you who may be new to this, it's when we make a project by trying out a new technique.  For today's technique, we are making a card base using a MCT Die.

Here is my take on this new technique:


Originally, what I did was make a card using the MCT ~ Stitched Doily Die.  I will show you what that looks like in a second.  But after my card was all done, it was a little fragile at the connector point so then I added the whole card to this square base cut with the MCT ~ 4x4 Journal Die & More.  I stamped the face with the PKS ~ Sweet On You Face Asst.  I added some sequins and pearls from my stash.  And then added a bow with The Twinery ~ Mandarin & Marigold Twine.


This is what the card looks like when it's open.  On the inside of the card, I added this sweet sentiment from the MCT ~ It's All About You.  

Well 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.  I will see you all again soon.  Have a great day everyone!

Hello everyone!  And welcome to another "Thrifty Thursday" with My Creative Time.  For those of you who may be new to this, it's when we make a project with our scraps or recycled items.  For my card today, all of the patterned paper and cardstock are from my scraps...wahoo!!


I made this card for a super sweet friend of mine who LOVES tulips!!!  They are not exactly tulips, but hey...I was being creative!!  ;)  


The border at the top is cut with the MCT ~ Fun Stitched Edge Dies.  That fun patterned paper is from the Doodlebug Design ~ Take Note collection.  All of the cardstock is Paper Trey Ink.  I made the fun tulips with the egg die in the MCT ~ Hello Chickie!  And their super cute faces are stamped with the PKS ~ Kawaii Face Assortment.  The stems are cut with the stem die in the MCT ~ Stitched Daisy Die.  And the grass is cut with the MCT ~ Stitched Grass Die.


The square is cut with the MCT ~ Square Stitched Goody Dies.  And the "Smile it's your day!" sentiment is from the MCT ~ It's All About You.  The bottom label is cut with the MCT ~ Vintage Stitched Label Dies and the "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from the MCT ~ Gift Card Sentiments.  All of the ink is jet black ~ Ranger Archival Ink.

On the back of the card I added the the gift card, but I forgot to take a picture of that...oops!  Well, 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.  I will see you all again soon.

My Creative Time ~ "Tag It Tuesday"

Hello everyone!  It's "Tag It Tuesday" with My Creative Time!  I've probably said this before, but I used to hate making tags.  But not anymore!!!  With Emma's products it's so fun and easy!!!  Here is a cute birthday tag for someone special:


All of the papers are from the Simple Stories ~ A Charmed Life collection.  I cut the tag using the MCT ~ Tag Dies.  And then I used the MCT ~ Stitched Gift Card Pocket Die for my fun gift card.  


The label is made with the MCT ~ Chocolate Greetings.  And the sentiment is from the MCT ~ Birthday Buddies.  I added the little flower from stash for some extra fun.


For a little extra touch I added some seam binding ribbon and tied a bow with hemp twine and then finished that off with another pretty little flower from my stash.


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.  I will see you all again soon.  Have a great day everyone!

My Creative Time ~ "Made In Minutes"

Hello everyone!  It's time for another "Made In Minutes" with My Creative Time.  For those of you who may be new to this, it's when we create projects that take less than 15-20 minutes to make.  And since today is St. Patrick's Day, I thought I would make some quick and yummy treats.


I told you it was yummy!  These are dark chocolate - mint M&Ms.  :)  I made the label with the MCT ~ Curly Label Die & MCT ~ Stitched Curly Label Die.  The sentiment is from the MCT ~ I'm A Lucky Girl.  All of the papers are from Paper Trey Ink.  The ribbon and the flower are from my stash.


I made this with the MCT ~ Stitched Lollipop Holder Die and the MCT ~ Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies.  The sentiment is from the MCT ~ All Around Holidays.  And the shamrock is from the MCT ~ I'm A Lucky Girl.  The patterned paper is from the DCWV ~ Guy stack.  And the solid colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.  The bow is made with The Twinery ~ Gold Shimmer twine.


Here's a peek at the yummy lollipop on the inside. That's it for me!  Super simple and "made in minutes"! ;) 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 ST. PATRICK'S DAY everyone!

My Creative Time ~ "Little Bitty Blog Hop"

Hello everyone!  And welcome to this fun "MINI" release blog hop!  If you did not arrive here from Liz's blog, then you might want to start off at the beginning of the hop HERE - because there is NOTHING you want to miss! Emma has been getting SEVERAL requests to make a die to coordinate with her cute Typewriter stamp that is in the "Once Upon A Time" stamp set.  As for the "Never Be Lost" set, well...this is a MUST HAVE for LOTS of fun projects such as your project life albums, scrapbook pages, smashbooking, cards, etc.  The possibilities are simply endless with these 2 new items!  Sit back, relax and hop along with us to see some AMAZING and DIFFERENT ways to use these 2 "tiny but mighty" new items!   ;)


I'm sure you know by now, that this little die is technically called a "geo-tag", but I thought I would show you how it could be used as a flame for a birthday candle.  How fun is that?!?  Ok, all of the solid colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.  And the pretty patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye ~ Ooh La La collection.


To make the cupcake, I used the MCT ~ Celebrate Good Times.  For the candle, I used the label die in the MCT ~ Chocolate Greetings.  And for flame, I used the 'geotag' in the brand new MCT ~ Never Be Lost.  To make the frosting, I took some fun "xoxoxo" ribbon from my stash (I think it's from SEI, but I can't remember) and all I did was use the hot glue gun - add a dab of glue, fold some ribbon over and repeat.  Then I put the whole thing on pop dots for dimension.


On the left side of the card, I used one of the MCT~ Fun Stitched Edge Dies.  Then I added a bow with some hemp twine and in the center I put a little flower gem with a pearl in the center.  For the tag and sentiment, I used the MCT ~ Teeny Tag Greetings.


Since you all have seen the typewriter stamp already, I thought I would use the stamp and die in a more traditional way.  I thought this card would be a fun way to give a crafty gift card to a friend.  :)  The black card base is from Recollections. The gray background is from the Echo Park ~ Chillingsworth Manor collection. And I cut that piece using the MCT ~ Stitched 4x6 Journal Die.  I used some hemp twine at the bottom and added a couple of little red flowers from my stash.


I used the brand new MCT ~ Typewriter Die and the typewriter stamp from the MCT ~ Once Upon A Time.  All 3 sentiments are from that set as well.  The inks are black & vermillion ~ Ranger Archival Ink.

My Creative Time ~ "Tag It Tuesday"

Hello everyone!  Today is "Tag It Tuesday" over at My Creative Time.  For those of you who may be new to this, it's when we make any project using a tag.  For my project today, I made a Gift Card Tag, but  I also made it into a card as well.


I cut the tag using the MCT ~ Tag Die.  On the front, I also used the MCT ~ Tag Gift Pocket Die.  I used the MCT ~ Fun Gift Pocket Sentiments for the HB2U!  I heat embossed it with Versamark ~ Watermark Ink and white ~ Stampendous Embossing Powder.  I tied a bow with hemp twine and added a little flower from my stash.  I adhered the tag to a piece of black cardstock to help the the tag pop out.  And then I added that to card base made out of green cardstock.  The solid colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink and the papers for the tag and gift card holder are from the My Mind's Eye ~ All Things Chalk stack.

Well 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.  I had a lot of family things going on this last weekend, so I will catch up on my crafting and see you all again soon.  Have a great day everyone!

My Creative Time ~ "Designer Challenge"

Hello everyone!  It's time for the next "Designer Challenge" over at My Creative Time.  And this time we have made it a Monochromatic Color Challenge.  The guidelines for this challenge:  Make a project of your choice using different shades of just one color.  (You can use a different color as your base or background - white, black, kraft; just make sure your focal point displays your monochromatic color choice). 


I made a couple of simple baby cards today.  Each one is 5.5 x 4.25.  


All of the solid colors of cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink.  The fun patterned papers are from the American Crafts ~ My Baby collection.  I used the Swiss Dots ~ Cuttlebug Folder to emboss the background.  All of the circles are cut with the MCT ~ Scallop & Stitched Circle Die.  The label is cut with the MCT ~ Vintage Stitched Label Dies.  And the sentiment is from the MCT ~ Vintage Sentiments.  The ink is Jet Black ~ Ranger Archival Ink.  And on either side of the sentiment are Doodlebug Design ~ Sprinkles.


This card is pretty much the same just a tad different.  The black and white cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink. The fun patterned papers are from the American Crafts ~ My Baby collection. The squares are cut with the MCT ~ Square Stitched Goody Dies.  And once again the label and sentiment are the same as above.


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 hope to see you all join our challenge.  You will have 2 weeks to link up your entry.  Have a great day everyone!!!

My Creative Time ~ "Made In Minutes"

Hello everyone!  Today is "Made In Minutes" over at My Creative Time.  This is when we make any kind of simple project that takes 15-20 minutes or less.  Now, a couple of years ago - I would have said that this would be impossible for me to do...lol.  But now, with MCT Products...it's a snap!  Who doesn't love that right?!


I needed a quick tag to add to a gift I'm sending a friend and this seriously only took me a few minutes.  All of the patterned papers are from the Simple Stories ~ Homespun Collection.  The tag is cut with the MCT ~ Tag Dies.  The hearts are cut with the heart die in the MCT ~ 100% Sweetness.  The label is cut with the MCT ~ Vintage Stitched Label Dies.  **Notice that I extended it a little longer to fit the sentiment.  The "To you from me with love." sentiment is from the MCT ~ Fun Gift Pocket Sentiments.  And the "Thank You" sentiment is from the MCT ~ Vintage Sentiments.  At the top, I added some crinkle ribbon and then tied a bow with some hemp twine.  Super simple and easy to make.

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.  I will see you all again soon.  Have a great day everyone!!!
