My Creative Time ~ "Tag It Tuesday"

Hello everyone!  It's time for another "Tag It Tuesday" with My Creative Time.  For those of you who may be new to this, it's when we make a project featuring a tag.  And today we are using a photo for inspiration.  

Here is the photo:


And here is my card using the colors from the inspiration photo:


This is a 3.5 x 5.5 card.  I cut the tag using the MCT ~ Tag Dies.  The patterned paper for the tag and one of the flowers is from the Simple Stories ~ Vintage Bliss collection.  All of the other solid colors of cardstock are from Papertrey Ink.  To make the window, I used the MCT ~ Just Simply Live.  The pretty flowers are from the MCT ~ Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies.  The "thanks" is from the MCT ~ Happy Thoughts.  And the "a Bunch" sentiment is from the MCT ~ Many Greetings.  

That's it...super simple 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 ~ "Head of the Class" BLOG HOP

Hello everyone!  And welcome to the My Creative Time ~ "Head of the Class" BLOG HOP!!!  You should have arrived here from 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 our projects today, we are all showcasing four new sets:  Love To Learn, Number Fun Dies + Add Ons, Uppercase Fun Dies & Write On.  And of course I couldn't just make one project so I made two - one with a back to school theme and the other completely different so that you can see how to use these new sets for something other than back to school.   ;)


This first card is a standard A2 size card.  All of the different colors of cardstock are from Papertrey Ink.  I used the MCT ~ Stitched 4x6 Journal Die to cut the yellow background piece (making it shorter of course to fit the card).  I used the "Teacher" stamp from the brand new MCT ~ Write On to heat emboss the background using Versamark ~ Watermark Ink and Clear ~ Stampendous Embossing Powder.  


I cut the label and background using the MCT ~ Curly Label Die & MCT ~ Stitched Curly Label Die.  The "Happy first day of school!" sentiment is also from the MCT ~ Write On.  I cut the "A" using my Cameo and a file from the Silhouette Online Store.  The little "+" is from the MCT ~ Number Fun Dies + Add Ons.  And the super cute little pencil and apple are from the brand new MCT ~ Love To Learn.  Are they just the cutest?!? Then I just added a little bow with some hemp twine.  


This second card is also a standard A2 size card.  I kept this one simple, but did something different so you could see how to use these sets in a different way.  All of the different colors of cardstock are from Papertrey Ink.  Once again I used the MCT ~ Stitched 4x6 Journal Die for the background.  The word "Hello" is a fun new die in the MCT ~ Love To Learn.  Now, for the something different...I used the little triangle part of the pencil die to create a fun little geometric border.  How cool, but simple is that?!?  Love it!


Well I hope you liked both of my cards for today.   :)

Hello everyone!  And welcome back for my second post of the day.  In case you haven't heard, Peachy Keen Stamps is celebrating the birthday of the super wonderful Miss Lorie ~ HAPPY BIRTHDAY to a super sweet and wonderful lady!  :)  There is a little birthday hop for Lorie, so if you want to see all the cards we made for this special lady - the hop starts with Tonya.


Instead of doing something more traditional, I thought I would do something a little funny...Love you Lorie!!! This is a standard A2 size card.  The fun polka dot paper for the card base is from the DCWV ~ Bella Armoire Stack.  The white and the red cardstock are from Papertrey Ink.  


This super cute skeleton is from the brand new PKS ~ Poseable Skeleton.  The "hope you don't mind a bit of drool?" sentiment is from the brand new PKS ~ Cranky Franky.  And all of the other words are from the brand new PKS ~ Halloween Sentiments & Labels.  I cut the "50" with the MCT ~ Stitched 4x6 Journal Die.  The "?" is from the PKS ~ Retro-bet Round.  The inks are Jet Back ~ Ranger Archival Ink and Royal Red ~ Hero Arts Shadow Inks.  I finished it off by tying a bow with some hemp twine and adding a pretty red heart jewel to the center.

Well that's it for me today.  Your next stop in this birthday hop is Gaby.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the SWEETEST PEACHY EVER!!!  And if you haven't already, please head on over to The Peachy Place to leave Lorie some birthday love.  Have a great day everyone!

MCT ~ "What A Treat Wednesday"

Hello everyone!  And welcome to a brand new segment called "What A Treat Wednesday" with My Creative Time.  On this day, we will all be making treat bags, boxes or containers.  Fun!  Fun!  Fun!


Ok, what treat would be complete without chocolate?!?  Hee!  All of the fun patterned papers for this treat are from the DCWV ~ Birthday Wishes Stack.  I made this fun little treat using the MCT ~ Treat Slider Box.  And in order to do something just a tad different, I used the MCT ~ Square Stitched Goody Dies to cut out a little window opening.  


In the center of the window, I added a fun little present that I cut using the MCT ~ All Around Holidays.  I cut the tag with the MCT ~ Teeny Tag Greetings.  And the sentiment is from the MCT ~ Teeny Tag Holidays.  Then I just finished it off with a bit of Tull-eeeee....as Emma would say!   ;)


That's it for me today.  Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time in order to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  I will see you all again in just a bit....I have a second post for today that is on the way!!!

IT'S A GIRL !!! ~ Diaper Cake

Hello everyone and Happy Monday!  I have something super fun to share with you today.  It's a Diaper Cake!! Hee!  These are so much fun to make!!  I made another Diaper Cake a couple of years ago that was more traditional.  This one however is a bit more fun!!!


I hot glued some pretty pink flowers around the base.  Around the bottom layer of diapers, I added some fun baby lotion.  On top of that layer of diapers I put the fun little baby socks.  There are a total of 4 baby onesies - 3 that you can see in this picture and then one on the back side.  At the very top are a cutie patootie pair of hot pink Dr. Martens boots (the mommy's FAVE)!!!  Aren't they the perfect cake topper?!?  Love it!!

Well that's it for me today.  Hope you liked it!  Have a great day everyone.  See you all again soon.

Here is the Color Palette photo:


And here is  my card:


I only used two colors for my card and they are a tad off, but that's ok...as Emma says..."There are no mistakes in paper crafting!"  To be honest, I didn't realize the aqua blue color was so off until I just put these two photos next to each other...lol.  Oh well!

This is a standard A2 size card.  All of the different colors of cardstock are from Papertrey Ink.  The "Happy birthday!" is from the MCT ~ Happy Thoughts.  And the fun heart is the medium size heart from the MCT ~ Stitched Heart Layering Dies.  The inks are Hero Arts Shadow Ink ~ Royal Red & Tide Pool.

That's it for me today..super simple.  Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  I can't wait to see what you all make!  Make sure you enter the challenge!!! Have a great day everyone.  I will see you all again soon.

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 create Project Life, Smashbook or any other type of scrapbook layout. And today we are all using a sketch for inspiration.

Here is the sketch:


And here is my layout:


It's another addition to my Disney Halloween album.  I'm using the 6x8 Simple Stories ~ SN@P Album and pocket pages.


This is a 4x6 photo.  The sparkly black background, the polka dot piece and the orange cardstock are all from the DCWV ~ Bewitched Stack.  The yellow cardstock is from Papertrey Ink.  I used the MCT ~ Tag Dies to cut the tag, extending it a bit to make it longer.  Then I used the MCT ~ Stitched Decorative Banners for the yellow piece.   And the sentiment is from the MCT ~ Spooky Starry Night.


To cut each photo, as well as the piece in the lower right corner, I used the MCT ~ Stitched 3x4 Journal Die.


Once again, I used the MCT ~ Stitched Decorative Banners for this yellow piece.  And the sentiment is from the MCT ~ Puffy Hearts Just For You.


I used one of my all time favs - the MCT ~ Stitched Scallop Heart Die here.  The sentiment is from the MCT ~ Puffy Hearts Just For You.  And the cute little spider is from the MCT ~ Treats For My Sweet.  The two little hearts are pieces from the MCT ~ Stitched Message Bubble Dies.


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!
