MCT Throwback Thursday "Do-Over" ~ merci!


Hello!   Yippie it's Thursday or Friday Eve as I like to say!  It's also our first Throwback Thursday "Do-Over" at My Creative Time!  This is where, we  on the design team get to do a "do over".  

There are many times when I know that I'm not happy with my project.  It may not be aweful, it's just not what I had in mind when I started.  So this gives us a second chance!  :)


This was my original project, nice however I thought it was lacking something.

MCT Scrapping The Little Things ~ left my heart!



Good morning and happy Monday crafty friends!  I hope your weekend was filled with fun and happiness!  This weekend I worked on my house doing little things like touching up walls and baseboards.  It's come to my attention that I'm getting old...I'm so sore from crawling around on the floor doing the baseboards! ;)
Well I know you didn't stop by to hear me whine, so on to my project!  Today is Scrapping the Little Things at My Creative Time, so a layout is what I have for you.


When my daughters and son in law where home for the holidays, we went to the city.  I have lived in the Bay Area all my life yet I had never walked on the Golden Gate Bridge.  Isn't it interesting that we live near a landmark where people from all over the world come to visit, yet I looked at it as just a bridge, a beautiful bridge, but a bridge.  Well let me say walking on it has given me a new perspective!

MCT Trending Now ~ Hello there!




Happy Thursday, today is Trending Now at My Creative Time.  There are so many trends in paper crafting, some are new and some that seem to stay fresh all the time.  Today we are featuring Wood and Lace, this is one that seems to stay current.  

I first taped off my card base, then stamp the grainy wood background stamp.  Before removing the painters tape I blending ink in several colors for depth over the stamped wood image.  Next I carefully removed the tape.

I then outlined the wood with gold gel pen, I wanted it to be a bit rough.  For the sentiment, I rounded the stamp on my block, then stamped on the circle die.
I just love that fun phone die!!!

MCT Tag It Tuesday ~ Happy Day!




Good morning crafty friends, I hope your week is happy so far!  If not, I think this sweet bear will lift your spirits and brighten your day.  :)  It's Tag It Tuesday at My Creative Time, where we are asked to make something with a tag on it.  I decided to make a tag with two tags :)


I love having the new bear die, it makes my crafting "life" so much better!  :)  A perfect cut every time!  On the tag background I stamped the heart border three times, twice in grey and once in red.  I also used the fun edge dies for the red glitter paper.

The heart dies are from the new Heart 2 Heart Love Frame dies, and are the perfect size!  The other two tags are the Teeny Tag die...which are on special right now!  :)

MCT January Release Sneak Peek Day 3 ~ we're perfect together!



Oh my we are already half way through My Creative Time January Release Sneak Peeks!  This has been such a fun week of sneaks!!!

Today we are showcasing The Last Pieces of Our Family Stamp Set & Stitched Puzzle Pieces Dies.


I made this card and this fun little pack, but I think I need to explain the bag.  I thought it would be fun to create a game for the person receiving the card.  Wouldn't it be fun and unique to stamp a message on the puzzle pieces.  Then they would have to put it together to read it!!!  Just attach it to the inside of the card with a glue dot.

MCT January Sneak Peek Day 1 ~ beary special friend!


Hello friends! 
 Today is Day 1 Sneak Peek for My Creative Time January Release.  This release is filled with lots of fun, for tons of creativity!!!

My project for today showcases the new stamp set "I love you beary much" and "Bear Dies".  If you already have "Beary Special Thoughts Stamps" then you have to have these!  Who am I kidding...even if you don't have the "Beary Special Thoughts Stamp" you'll want ALL of these! 


I was so fast to stamp and die cut the sweet bear!  For the sentiment tag I used one of the "Build a Banner Kit".  You might not be able to recognize it since I "lengthened" it to fit the sentiment.
