MCT December Sneak Peek #3 ~ Mr & Mrs Card!

 WooHoo, it's day 3 of My Creative Time's December release!  I bet you can't wait to get your hands on these beautiful stamps and dies!  You only have to wait one more day!
 
 
I've been telling you the last couple of days that this release can be used for more than Valentine's Day.  Today's card is a wedding card that is really a simple card.  However, with My Creative Time Dies and great papers it looks like so much more!

 
I used the Stitched Scallop Heart Die with two sided paper, then turned the center heart over to expose the other side.  It fits perfect inside the heart. 
To get the over sized pearl to stay in side the flower, after rolling it, I snipped the center of the flower out.  The pearl then sits perfectly without any wobble.

MCT December Sneak Peek #1 ~ Gift Bag!

Hi Everyone, I hope that you enjoyed your Christmas with family and friends!  I'm sorry I haven't been posting, I took some time to spend with my family!
 
Well Well Well, you are in for a treat today!  My Creative Time's December Release is way too sweet for words!  You may think that this is a Valentine's only release and on the surface it might seem that way, but it can be used for way more!
 
I created this darling gift bag and put a mask cool pack in it!  If you don't like 3D projects, don't fret...this could easily be made the same way and attached to a card base.


 
 I took one of the layering dies, pierced two holes to make a button then added glossy accents.
Don't you love how sharp and crisp this stamp is!  Oh, and aren't those the cutest little hearts!  I used an old book with lots of  "love" words for the hearts.

End of Year Reflection ~ part 1!

Hi my friends!  I'm sorry I've been a bit quiet lately, I've been working more hours than normal.  And with Christmas just around the corner, I just haven't been crafting that much.  I plan on working on some new projects this weekend, however until then I wanted to show you my favorite cards from this past year!
 











 
This coming year is going to be about my family and spending quality time with those I love!  This isn't a New Year's Resolution just how I'm going to live my life! 
I'll be back with some more of my favorite layouts and 3D projects!
 
I also have a little secret...there is going to be one last My Creative Time release before the end of the year!  I hope Miss Emma won't be upset that I told you!
 
Enjoy!

Butterfly Card!


 
Hi Paper Lovers!  It's my day over at Jinger Adams to share another project with you!  After making so many Christmas projects lately, it was nice to pull out paper that was a bit more colorful!  My card is made Jinger's fabulous Bella Vita line! 

 
 

I "fussy" cut the butterflies, then added chunky glitter for my signature "bling"!  A seam binding ribbon bow and a sparkly button with purple hemp completes the look!
