My Creative Time ~ "Farewell Blog Hop"

Hello everyone!  And welcome to the My Creative Time ~ Design Team FAREWELL BLOG HOP.  You should have arrived here from Teri Beri's blog.  If not, then make sure you head back to My Creative Time so that you can start at the beginning with Emma.

Before we get to my project, I just wanted to take a minute to say THANK YOU to Miss Emma.  You were my original inspiration for starting my blog.  Your "Throwback Thursday Challenge" was the first contest I ever entered and also the first contest I ever won.  Being on your Design Team was a dream come true and it has been a WONDERFUL experience.  Thank you so much for everything! 

I also want to take a minute and say THANK YOU to all of my Design Team sisters.  You have all been such an inspiration and we have shared some AMAZING times and more than a few good laughs.  And most of all, I have made some friendships that I know I will treasure for a lifetime so thank you all for that.

Finally, I want to say THANK YOU to all of YOU.  I will never be able to put into words what a wonderful experience having a blog has been and that is because of all of YOU.  Your comments mean the world to me and have made me smile even on the worst of days.  While my time on the My Creative Time Design Team has come to an end, my crafting journey will continue.  I'm excited to see what the new year has in store and I hope you will all continue to visit my blog and say Hi. 

Ok, enough of the sappy stuff lol...let's get back to my project for the day.  Rainbows anyone???  :) 


For my project today, I decided to make these fun little cards for each of the Design Team members.  And of course I had to use my favorite rainbow colors.  The pretty patterned paper is from the Coredinations ~ Flower collection.  I cut the card using the MCT ~ Stitched 4x6 Journal Die & More and then just folded that in half.  To decorate the front, I cut the oval using the MCT ~ Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies.  The cute little girls and heart are from the MCT ~ We Are Family.  And the sentiment is from the MCT ~ Treasured Moments.  I added a little bow with some hemp twine.  And on the inside is a special little treat for each one of them.  Super simple and easy to reproduce.

*****GIVEAWAY ALERT*****
For our giveaway today, EACH ONE OF US is giving away a $15 Gift Card to the My Creative Time store!  All you have to do is leave a comment at EACH stop in order to qualify to win.  Don't forget to leave a way for us to contact you if YOU are the lucky winner.  You will have until Sunday, December 21, 2014 at 5pm PST to leave your comments.  Emma will have all the winners on her blog on Monday, December 22, 2014.

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY" to the Peachy Queen!

Hello everyone!  To all of you "Peachy" lovers out there...did you hear??   It's the Peachy Queen's birthday. So head on over to The Peachy Place on Facebook to help us wish Kathy a very Happy Birthday.

I might have mentioned this before, but during this year I have been taking some Copic classes with the wonderful Jennifer Dove.  And here is the very first coloring project that I have made all on my own.  It's with one of my all time favorite Peachy Kits of the Month.


Isn't he soooo cute???  I just LOVE him!  It's a good thing I made this for Kathy, because if it was for anyone else...I might have just kept it!!!  lol  ;)  This is an A2 size card.  All of the solid colors of cardstock are from Papertrey Ink.  And the fun patterned papers are from the Echo Park ~ Paper & Glue collection.


To cut the background pieces and the Happy Birthday banner, I used the MCT ~ Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More.  The fun balloons are from the MCT ~ Stitched Party Dies.  The super duper cutie patootie clown is from the PKS ~ June 2014 : Kit of the Month.   I colored him in with my Copic ~ Sketch Markers (E50, E51, E93, R35, R46, R59, Y02, Y08, Y15, Y19, B24, B26, B28, E31, E35, E57, C1, C3).  I still have lots of practice to do, but I am super happy with how he turned out.

Well that's it for me today.  Don't forget to head on over to The Peachy Place on Facebook to help wish Miss Kathy a wonderful birthday.  I will see you all again soon.  Have a great day!

My Creative Time ~ Retirement Sale!!



Hello everyone!  Have you heard the news?!?!  Emma over at My Creative Time is having a RETIREMENT SALE!!!  Yep - you heard that right!  Get on over there while they last, because when they're gone...they are gone.

Here's a card I made with one of the sets that's still left (the last time I checked that is...lol).


This is a standard A2 size card.  All of the different colors of cardstack are from Papertrey Ink.  I used the MCT ~ Fun Borders and heat embossed it with Versamark ~ Watermark Ink and Clear ~ Stampendous Embossing Powder onto 3 strips that I cut using the MCT ~ Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies and More.  (I shortened the size to make them skinny enough to fit the stamp).  Then I cut the flowers using the MCT ~ Flower Petal Dies.  I added some ribbon and a little flower embellishment and voila.  It's much prettier in real life...I had a hard taking this picture to capture the shimmery-ness of the ribbon and jewel.

Well that's it for me today.  Make sure you head on over to the My Creative Time ~ Retirement Sale right now to grab what's left.  I will see you all again soon.  Have a great day!

My Creative Time ~ "What A Treat Wednesday"

Hello everyone!  And welcome to another "What A Treat Wednesday" with My Creative Time.  Today I have another super cute and super easy stocking stuffer for your favorite crafty friend.


I used the MCT ~ Small Stitched Scallop Bow Die for the top of the treat bag.  All I did was add a simple button tied with some hemp twine.  You could mass produce these in no time for a holiday crop!  That's of course if any of us have any time for a holiday crop LOL!!!   ;)

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 ~ 5 Days of Christmas

Hello everyone!  I can't believe it's almost over!!!  Today is Day 5 of the My Creative Time ~ 5 Days of Christmas.  Since I started the week off with a card, I thought I would end the week with a card too.


This was so hard to get a good picture of, but I promise it's super pretty and sparkly in person.  This is an A2 size card.  The white cardstock is from Papertrey Ink.  And the pretty silver snowflake paper is from the Craft Smith ~ Holiday Elegance collection.  I used the MCT ~ Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More to cut the layers.  Then I used the MCT ~ Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies to cut out the center.  And then in the very center you can see a Christmas Tree that I cut out using the MCT ~ Seasonal Greetings.  I channeled my inner Nikki and turned this into a fun shaker card with sequins and beads.  And if you look closely, you can see that I added the sentiment at the bottom from the MCT ~ Seasonal Greetings.  I embossed it with Versamark ~ Watermark Ink and Clear ~ Stampendous Embossing Powder.

My Creative Time ~ 5 Days of Christmas

Hello everyone!  It's Day3 of the My Creative Time ~ 5 Days of Christmas.  You know I couldn't go all week without using the greatest invention ever!!!


This is another quick and simple gift idea.  I cut this using my favorite all time MCT product...the Embossed Gift Card Holder Die!!!  The pretty star paper is from the Craft Smith ~ Holiday Elegance collection.  It was hard to get a picture, but it's a pretty gold shimmery color.  I cut the "Merry" using the MCT ~ Boughs of Holly.  The "Christmas" is from the MCT ~ Seasonal Greetings.  And the pretty little holly leaves are also from the MCT ~ Boughs of Holly.  I added some red gems for the berries and then some red ribbon for the final touch.  Super quick and easy!
