PDE Linky Party #17

Happy Tuesday!
Are you guys ready for the start of another great linky party at


Rules:
1) New projects only
2) Follow the theme
3) Any type of crafting welcome
4) Unlimited times to link up
5)  Have fun & Follow us at PDELinkyParty!

Here is what I created for this Linky Party:


I decided to make a fun little treat holder for Halloween using the Bubblegum Treat Box die from My Creative Time. I also used the Scallop & Stitched Circle die and the All Around Holidays die and stamp set. This project was so simple and easy to make and would be very easy to mass produce. I simply cut off one end of the Bubble Gum Treat Box (at the spot where you would tie the ribbon) and folded the flaps on top of each other to create a box that would stand. 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!

My Creative Time's Head Of The Class Blog Hop

Happy Friday!
Welcome to My Creative Time's Head of the Class Blog Hop!!


I'm so happy that you decided to join us today!
If you came here from Miss Jessica's Blog, Chick-n-Scrap, then you are in the right spot.
If you just happened to stumble across the hop today on my blog and would like to start at the beginning, be sure to head over to My Creative Time and see Miss Emma!
.

I love this mini release so much that I have a couple of different projects to show you today.

First up is this cute little paint bucket and matching 3x3 card that you can give to the teacher for the first day of school or even for Teacher's Appreciation.


For my paint bucket, I wrapped the outside with some grid line paper. I used one of the edges from the Fun Stitched Edges dies and wrapped that along the top of my grid paper all the way around the can. I then used the NEW Uppercase Fun Dies to die cut some letters from different colors of cardstock and attached them to my grid paper going all the way around the can as well. For my card, I cut a piece of the grid cardstock to 3x6 and folded it in half to make a 3x3 card. I attached another one of those fun edges from the Fun Stitched Edges dies along the side of my card. I added that super fun greeting from the NEW Write On set and popped up that apple from the NEW Love To Learn set with some foam adhesive. I added some polka dot ribbon to both the paint can and the card. 

For the top of my can, I added a circle cut out using the Bunch Of Fun Circle Dies and then popped up that cute little apple from the New Love To Learn set.

Even though this new release is School Themed, I wanted to show you that you can make other projects that aren't necessarily school related. I decided to make a Thank You gift card holder. I simply used the Embossed Gift Card Holder (still one of my favorites) for my base. I then took the name tag from the New Love To Learn set and made that a layer for the front of my gift card. My greeting came from the New Write On set and that pretty little flower is from the Stitched Pretty Flowers and Leaves Dies. I added an enamel dot to my flower center and a few random sequins to finish it off.  


Take a look at the new goodies in this release:

Stretch Your Stamps 2 Bonus Day

Hi crafty friends!

Happy Thursday!
 Today I have another project to show you that I made for the


This is the card that I created as part of my homework:


For the bonus day, it was all about Color Me Stamps and Stephanie Klauck showed us how to create Mirror Images out of our stamps to stretch them even further. I decided to use this super cute stamp from My Creative Time and create a mirror image of the tree branch so that I could have branches on both sides of my card. I loved trying this technique and I definitely think I will be using it more!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!!

I hope you have a great crafty day!!

What A Treat Wednesday with My Creative Time

Happy Wednesday!!

Today over at the My Creative Time blog,
it is What A Treat Wednesday!!

What A Treat Wednesday is a new feature where we will be showing you treat bags, boxes and containers that incorporate those fabulous My Creative Time Products!! This is right up my ally! I love making little treat containers and my hubby loves getting the treats :) 

Here is the treat holder that I made to share with you today:


I decided to make a fun little milk carton (you can find the tutorial HERE) and embellish the front for some extra fun. I used the adorable little frame from the Stitched Mini Frame & Arrow Dies set and used the stitched flight pattern and the paper airplane from the Fun Paper Airplane Die to make it appear that the plane was flying out of the frame. For my sentiment, I stamped a greeting from the Plane & Simple set onto one of the banners from the Trio Stitched Banners. I love these banners!! I finished it off by adding some enamel dots and closing the top with a fun clip.

Here is my box opened:


I filled my milk carton with some candy and gave it to my hubby as a fun little surprise. He loved it and I believe the candy is almost gone already haha! 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and taking a look at my latest creation!

This is the tag that I created as part of my homework:
