My Creative Time's Scrapping the Little Things!

Hello Everyone and happy Monday to you!  This will be the first of two posts I have for you today!  That's right, TWO!  I don't know about you, but I feel like I'm never caught up with my scrapbooking!  I know that we aren't suppose to say that, "caught up".  But it's hard to change that thinking when that's how I was taught...chronological.  However that is what's so great about this new feature that Emma has created with "Scrapping the Little Things".  When using Project Life, Simple Stories, or just a Smashbook, you can just do a layout with the people you love, or anything you want!  The new philosophy is just do the people...don't worry about the events!  And using My Creative Time's Just Simply Live stamp and die set make even easier!
 
So here is my layout...it really took me no time at all!
 
 



I colored the butterflies with copic markers then sprayed with Mr Huey shine.  It's hard to see in the picture but it just gives it a pearl glimmer!

Make sure you check out my other design team sisters and I'll be back later this morning with another project!
 
Enjoy!

My Creative Time's September Mini Release Blog Hop!

 
Happy Friday and welcome to My Creative Time's September Mini Release Blog Hop!  Even though this is a "mini" release, I know that you've still been blown away with all the projects that the team has been making!  Since this is a HUGE hop I'm going to get right to it!!!  You should have arrived here from  Miss Leanne!  If you just popped in to see me then please head over to the start at        Miss Emma's so you can have more chances for this month's giveaway!!!!  :)
 
This is a little candle gift that could be added to a "Boo Basket"!  If you've ever received one they are so fun!  This little project only took me 10 minutes to complete.  I told you the other day, I'm about cute and quick!  :)  So if you had to make several, it's doable!! 
 
I picked up these plain candle pack at "wally world", peeled off the label and covered it with the Fancy Frame die.  Then I stamped the new Halloween stamp from the "Just for You" stamp set on to orange tissue paper.  Next I cut around the sentiment (this took the most time), then heat set the tissue paper to the candle being careful not to melt it. 
 
Put them back in the box they came in, and added the burlap, hemp and tag!  Oh, yea I stamp "to and from" on the tag.  Easy Peasy!!!
 
 


 
recipe:
candle 4 pack
