My Creative Time: Scrapping The Little Things

Happy Monday!
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!!

Today at the My Creative Time blog, it is Scrapping The Little Things.
This is the day that we create a scrapbook page, smash book page or a project life page. 
Today we are showing you layouts based on the following sketch:



For my layout, I decided to create a fun layout based on an afternoon that my daughter and I had not too long ago. We went to our outdoor mall, walked around and did a little shopping and then stopped by the Starbucks inside our Barnes & Noble and had some delicious coffee and split a brownie. 


For my layout, I stamped the date using some of the numbers from the Alpha Pack onto the Stitched Tab Die. I heat embossed the date with some white embossing powder. For my title, I used the Uppercase Fun Dies as well as the Lowercase Fun Dies. For my flowers, I used the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies. Once the flowers were assembled, I popped them up with a tiny bit of foam adhesive for just a bit of dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!
I appreciate it so much!!
Don't forget to head over to the My Creative Time blog to see more projects from my Design Team sisters!

I hope you have a fabulous crafty day!!

MCT's 35th Edition Release Blog Hop

Happy Friday!!
Welcome to My Creative Time's 35th Release 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 decided to create some fun little gift bags, perfect for Halloween, that showcases the 
 I also incorporated some of Emma's other products as well.

Since my kids are too old to go Trick or Treating, I make them (and my hubby) each a basket every year filled with candy. I try to package each type of candy differently so that it adds to the fun. 

For my first bag, I cut out my tag in some black glitter cardstock using the Tag Dies. I then used the NEW Tag Die Layers to cut out my orange layer to add to the top of my black tag. I added a couple of strips of that fun zig zag that I cut out from the NEW Tag Die Layers as well. I added to BOO by using the Uppercase Fun Dies and then added some googly eyes as well as some star confetti. I cut out the scallop circle and the largest circle from the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies, layered them on top of each other and then folded it in half. I punch a hole and attached my tag to my half circle flap using some black satin ribbon.

For my second bag, I pretty much did the same concept, only I used patterned paper for the top layer of my tag and added one strip of the zig zag to the bottom of the tag.

Same concept for my third bag except instead of using the zig zag, I used that super cute row of circles that also comes in the NEW Tag Die Layers set.

Here is a picture of all 3 bags along with a little peek of the candy that is in this packaging lol!

I know it is a little early for Halloween, but it is one of my favorite times to create for and I have a ways to go to fill up their baskets lol! One down, many more to go :)

Welcome to Day 3 of the My Creative Time's 35th edition sneak peeks!
I'm so glad you stopped by!

Today we are giving you sneaky peeks of 2 new sets called
Camera Bottom Layer Die & Picture Perfect.



For my card, I used that one of the circles from the Bunch Of Fun Circle Dies and layered that cute little camera on top with some foam tape. For my camera, I used that adorable Stitched Camera die and layered that onto the NEW Camera Bottom Layer Die. Doesn't it layer so perfectly together? My sentiment came from the NEW Picture Perfect set and I heat embossed it with some white embossing powder. Those cute little hearts that are in the camera lens both came from the 4x4 Journal Die + More set.

MCT's 35th Edition Sneak Peeks Day 1


Happy Monday!!
Welcome to Day 1 of the My Creative Time sneak peeks for the 35th Edition!
I'm so glad you stopped by to see the sneaks!
This release is so fantastic and you are definitely not going to want to miss one single day! 

Today we are giving you a sneak peek of a fun new set titled, Fun Vertical Greetings.

I decided to get a jump start on a Christmas gift by making a gift card holder:


For my gift card holder, I used the Embossed Gift Card Holder to create my base. I added that fun sentiment from the NEW Fun Vertical Greetings set and heat embossed it with some silver embossing powder. I added some patterned paper to the top flap and used the Fun Stitched Edges to create my field of snow. That adorable little snowman comes from the You're So Cool set. Isn't he adorable? I attached some ribbon and tied a double loop bow. For the center of my bow, I used one of the snowflakes from the Winter Flake Dies set and also embossed it with some silver embossing powder. 

Here is the gift card holder open:
