Made In Minutes Monday with MCT

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

Today over at the My Creative Time blog, it is
Made In Minutes!
This is the day where we create a project and try to keep it under 20 minutes. 

I decided to make a CAS card

I have a tendency to "collect" washi tape so for this card, I decided to actually use some of it haha! I cut the "Happy" from the Happy Thoughts set directly from my white layer. I then adhered it on top of the pink layer so that it showed through. I then stamped the "You Are My", also from the Happy Thoughts set, in pink ink. That cute little heart came from the 4x4 Journal Die + More set. I added strips of washi and a few sequins and voila! Clean and simple card that only took me 13 minutes to make :) 

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

Don't forget to stop by the My Creative Time blog to see more Made In Minutes projects :)
I hope you have a fabulous crafty day!

My Creative Time's 33rd Release Blog Hop!

Happy Friday!!
Welcome to the My Creative Time 33rd 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!

For my project, I decided to make a little thank you card and gift:

I made a portrait style A2 card. I added some little scallops underneath my patterned paper by using a edge from the Fun Stitched Edges. I used the Stitched 3x4 Journal Die to create the white layer of my card. For my "tree branch", I used one of the stems from the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies. I cut it out twice, once in kraft and once in green and then just simply snipped off the green leaves and adhered them over the kraft leaves. I cut my beehive out of the NEW Bees & Beehive Dies and hung it from the branch. I added that cute little flight pattern from the Live, Love, Laugh & Be Happy stamp set. My sentiment came from the NEW Bee Happy set and of course that cute little bumblebee from the Bee Happy set as well as the die from the Bees & Beehive Dies set. I finished off my card by adding some faux stitching with my gel pen, some enamel dots to his antennae and some glitter to his wings. 

For my gift, I decorated a tube from Papertrey Ink by adding some yellow and black chocolate candies in layers to resemble a bee's colors.


Of course I had to add some of those cute little bees from the Bee Happy and Bees & Beehive Dies to the front of my tube.

Here are both the card and tube together:

I love those little bees and there are so many great sentiments on the Bee Happy set that coordinate perfectly!!

Here is a look at the entire release!! They are all fabulous sets!!

Day 2 of the MCT June Sneak Peeks!

For my PDE Linky Party project, please scroll down one post. 



Hi crafty friends and happy Tuesday!
Are you guys ready for day 2 of the sneak peeks from My Creative Time's June release?

Today we are giving you sneak peeks of 2 new sets called
Surf's Up and Sit Back & Relax.

I made two cards for today's sneaks. The first card uses elements from the new set titled
Sit Back & Relax

For my card, I used the Stitched 3x4 Journal Die to create my card base. I cut out a bracket from the Stitched Bracket Dies to place along the top of my card and adhered a bow from the Fun Size Scallop Stitched Bow Die. My flip flops came from the ever so cute set called Sit Back & Relax. I added a heart from the 4x4 Journal Die + More set to each of my flip flop straps. For my greeting, I used the banner from the Vintage Stitched Label Dies and stamped that fun sentiment from the Sit Back & Relax set onto it and added a couple of the small hearts from the 4x4 Journal Die + More set. I finished off my card by adding some sequins randomly onto my card as well as some glossy accents to all of the hearts. 

Supplies:
My Creative Time Products:

Other Products:
Cardstock: Recollections. Patterned Paper: Dolled Up (MME). Ink: Strawberry Slush (SU!). Misc.: Glossy Accents, Sequins


For my second card, I decided to make a side step card:


I used the Make A Splash Die for the waves and one of the edges from the Fun Stitched Edges set to create the sand. How cute is that beach ball, surfboard and shell from the NEW Surf's Up set? For my sun, I used the sun stamp from the Fun Pockets set and just masked off the face, stamped it and then adhered it to the corner with some foam adhesive. I then used the Stitched Cartoon Cloud dies for those fun clouds. My sentiment also came from the NEW Surf's Up set, I heat embossed it with some white embossing powder.

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!

I decided to make card that uses a lot of layers on the main die cut.


I used a file that I found in the Silhouette store from Lori Whitlock called, A2 Hot Air Balloon (design ID 46147). It was so simple to put together and I LOVE how dimensional my card is. 

Here is a view from the side so you can see more of the dimension:


The best part is, it will still fit into an A2 envelope for easy mailing:


Fun huh?

Day 1 of the MCT June Sneak Peeks!!

Please scroll down one post to see my winner for the 3D blog hop



Happy Monday!!
Welcome to Day 1 of the My Creative Time sneak peeks for June!
I'm so glad you stopped by to see the sneaks!
Emma has really outdone herself with this release and you are not going to want to miss one single day! 
 I think this release is my favorite (until the next one I'm sure lol)!!!

Today we are giving you sneaks of 2 different sets called,
Happy Thoughts and You Are Fabulous.

Here is a card that I created that incorporates something from both sets:


For my card, I used the scallop circle and another circle from the Bunch Of Fun Circle Dies set and adhered those to my card base. I then attached that super cute "Happy" from the NEW Happy Thoughts set. I then cut out my label (making it just a tad longer) from the Chunky Jar Accessories set and stamped "Fourth Of July", also from the NEW Happy Thoughts set. I cut out some medium and small stars from the 3 Star Stitched Dies set and then stamped them using a couple of the patterns from the NEW You Are Fabulous set. I popped those up using some foam adhesive and attached them to my card. I finished off my card by using some sequins and some faux stitching with my white gel pen. This looks so much better in person! I apologize for the picture, I had to resort to taking it inside cause it has been so rainy here lately. 

***Sneak Peek giveaway!***

If you have never tried to make 3D projects before, I hope today you will be inspired to give it a try. And if you are a seasoned 3D crafter, maybe our projects will inspire you to do some crafting this weekend!
Before I tell you about how you can enter to win, here's my 3D project:



For my project, I decided to cut the ball cap from the Fun & Games collection by SVGcuts.com.
After I had all my pieces cut out, I did some faux stitching with my white gel pen on each panel. I also added some white eyelets to the tiny little holes at the crown of the hat. My hubby is a huge Chicago Cubs fan so for my cubs logo, I simply created it using my cameo. It's not perfect but it's close enough :)
 Then I started assembling all the panels. It was so super easy to put together and I love how it came out.

Inside the hat, I put some snack mix that resembles Cracker Jacks so my hubby can have a little snack while he is watching the game.


My hubby loved it!!

With school getting out and so many kids are starting their summer breaks, I thought it would be cute to make a little gift to give.

First up is the little card. I used the 3x3 tri fold card die from the Card Sentiments set for my base. I then added my sentiment and those cute little flip flops from the Sit Back & Relax set. I finished it off with some tulle and some little bows made with embroidery floss.

To go with my card, I made a little treat holder using the Treat Slider Box Die. I used the Sit Back & Relax set again for the flip flops. Those little flowers on the flip flops and the candy are from the Stitched Button Dies. 

Here is a look at the card and the box together:

I just love it!! The flip flops are so precious and I have a feeling I will be using that fun sentiment a lot as well!!

Your next stop is the super talented


Before I go, we are going to go ahead and give you a look at what this new set looks like!!!
