My Creative Time ~ "Inspiration Wednesday"

Hello everyone!  And welcome to another "Inspiration Wednesday" with My Creative Time.  For those of you who may be new to this, it's when we make any project we want using some kind of inspiration.  So you all know that I've been waiting and waiting for fall.  Well, in Phoenix, it's kinda hard to tell the shift of seasons when it stays hot here for so long.  But one sure sign for me that fall is coming is when I see the Halloween Candy showing up at the store!!!  :)  

With that being said, let's see if you can guess what the inspiration was for my card today.  (Just a little hint - I'm using the colors for my inspiration).


Any guesses???  My colors are white, orange and yellow.  Any guesses now???  ;)  Well let me tell you a little about my card and see if any of you can figure it out.  All of the different colors of cardstock are from Papertrey Ink.  The beautiful sentiment is from one of my favorite sets MCT ~ Floral Sentiments.


Don't you just love how Emma started adding stitching around the outside of some of her dies?  I sure do!  I used the MCT ~ Bunch Of Fun Circle Dies to make the background and I did the fun in-lay to the card itself.  The pretty flowers are from the MCT ~ Stitched Daisy Die and the leaves are the MCT ~ Stitched Leaves Dies.  If you look closely, you might be able to see that I added some pretty Wink of Stella to the center of the flowers. And then I added some fun ribbon for a bit more green.


Ok...who guessed it????  CANDY CORN!!!!!  Yep, that was my inspiration and let me tell you...IT WAS YUMMY. Yep...ALL OF IT!!!  In my defense, it was a pretty small bag!!!!   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 ~ "What a Treat Wednesday"

Hello everyone!  It's time for another "What a Treat Wednesday" with My Creative Time.  For those of you who may be new to this, it's when we make any kind of treat.  I know many of you will be looking forward to this one.  Not me though...I can't stand coffee...YUK!  lol  ;)


Everyone that I know that loves coffee has been counting the days for the release of Pumpkin Spice coffee.  So I thought I would make this little treat to get you all in the mood.  :)


To make the tag, I used the MCT ~ Tag Dies & MCT ~ Tag Die Layers.  One little hint...I extended the length of the tag so that it would fit this fun little treat.  I also used the MCT ~ XL Label Die & MCT ~ Stitched XL Label Die.  The "Hello Fall" sentiment and the fun little leaves are from the MCT ~ Piles of Smiles.  All of the patterned papers are from the Doodlebug Design ~ Friendly Forest collection.  And the brown cardstock is from Papertrey Ink.


Well that's it for me.  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 Fall!!!  well...almost.  ;)

My Creative Time ~ "Thrifty Thursday"

Hello everyone!  It's time for another "Thrifty Thursday" with My Creative Time.  For those of you who may be new to this, it's when we make any project using our scraps or re-cycled materials.

I know the calendar says September, but it's still 108 degrees here...I'm sooo ready for FALL!!!


So I decided to make another Halloween tag to get me in the mood for a change of seasons.  :)  All of the different colors of cardstock are from Papertrey Ink.  To cut the tag, I used the MCT ~ Tag Dies and MCT ~ Tag Die Layers.


The cute little ghostie is from the MCT ~ Stitched Spooky Ghost Dies.  I cut the label using the  MCT ~ Curly Label Die and MCT ~ Stitched Curly Label Die.  I made the fun background using the paint splatters from the MCT ~ Family Is Everything.  The ink is Monarch Orange ~ Ranger Archival Ink.  And the sentiment is from the MCT ~ Treats For My Sweet.


I finished it off with some fun polka dot ribbon and hemp twine.  That's it...super simple.  Come on FALL!!!  lol 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 tomorrow.  Have a great day everyone!

Hello everyone!  And welcome to another "Scrapping the Little Things" with My Creative Time.  For those of you who may be new to this, it's when we create any type of Project Life, Smash Book or any other scrapbook layout.  And this week we are using a sketch for some inspiration. 

Here is the sketch:


And here is my layout using the 6 x 8 Simple Stories ~ SN@P Album:


This is another layout for my Disney Halloween scrapbook from last year.  Hee!  You all know how I love my Disney!!!  All of the papers are from the DCWV ~ Bewitched Stack.


The "spooky" and the ghostie are from the MCT ~ Stitched Spooky Ghost Dies.  The arrow is from the MCT ~ Stitched Capture Frame & Arrow Dies.  The chevron strips are from the MCT ~ Tag Die Layers.  And the "photo bomb" is cut with the MCT ~ Lowercase Fun Dies.


The four squares on this page are cut the MCT ~ 3x4 Stitched Journal Die - I just cut them down smaller to fit my page and the sketch.  And instead of the butterflies in the sketch - I used the super cute ghosties!!!  Isn't that the funniest photo bomb????  


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!!
