Good Morning crafty friends, welcome to My Creative Time August Release Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the ever talented Miss Emily.  If not please head over to Miss Emma for the start...the more you comment the more chances to win!!!



For my project today, I wanted to get some scrap booking done...however I had a some trouble get my photos to print.  So here you have it, just the PL style cards :/  Well at least they'll  be ready when I figure out the printing issue.



I stamped "smile purdy" over and over again to create a pattern background paper.  Remember to think out side the box when stamping.  Sentiment stamps can be used many different ways!

MCT August Release Sneak Peek Day 4 ~ Tag You're It!


Welcome to Day 4 of My Creative Time's August Release!  Well, you only have to wait one more day to order and get any and all of these wonderful stamps and dies you've been drooling over this week!

For my projects today I used Tag Die Layers, you might be thinking these are a bit incomplete, and you're half right :)
Just like having cards on hand for any given reason, I like to have tags to hang on bags ready to go.  That's why I didn't add the ribbons through the holes.

You also might be trying to figure out what is the new item here.  Remember earlier in the week I told you that this release was about adding on to what you already have?  So if you already have the tag dies, now you can get a smaller tag the will create a layer.  However it's not just the tag layers...there are other goodies like the "congrats" die and the "chevron" die!


Just wait until you see ALL the pieces that come with these wonderful tags!

MCT August Release Sneak Peek Day 3 ~ Smile!



Happy Wednesday!  Today is day 3 of  My Creative Time's August Release, and we are more than half way through the sneaky peeks!  I've been really enjoying this week and seeing what everyone on the team has made.

For my project today, I wanted to do another "one layer" style card.  I realize that the "smile" is a layer, however it's not popped up, so I consider this a "one layer" card :)


To create the embossed effect, use a rubber mat with your die.  My Big Shot came with a black rubber mat, and for so long I didn't even know what to do with it :)

Inspiration Wednesday ~ Happy Birthday!


Hello, I hope your week is wonderful so far!  Mine has been busy like usual, always self induced :)

Today is Inspiration Wednesday at My Creative Time, this is where we make a project inspired by anything.  My inspiration is from a small jewelry box I saw online.




I first die cut a heart on scrap paper, then I used it as a stencil for the flower and leaf stamps.


Once I was finished stamping the flowers and leaves, softly inked around the heart before removing the stencil.  Then simply added a few gold dots.

MCT Scrapping the little things ~ Think Big!



Hello!  I hope you've had a restful weekend!  My weekend was busy and relaxing at the same time.  I got to shopping at some outlets with my husband, then meet some friends for a late lunch on Saturday.  Sunday is always filled with church and lunch...then a well deserved nap in the afternoon!  I'm really not a nap person, however I have come to really enjoy them on a Sunday afternoon :)

Anyway, today over at My Creative Time we are featuring a sketch for Scrapping The Little Things segment.  I decided to work on my Smash Book that I'm making for my road trip that DH and I did the past spring.  I did part of it on the road while we were traveling.  I kept it really simple with postcards, stickers, and other memorabilia.  Then I'm filling in with photos that I took with my iPhone.  I want to keep this Smash Book very simple.  At least that's my goal!



This was taken around Arizona and New Mexico.  My husband says it was in Joe Dirt, but I don't remember, I just thought it was funny to see a bunch of big arrows!  :)


I added a few die cut and stamped images...so quick and easy!
