MCT November Release Blog Hop ~ Congratulations!

Hi Everyone!  Welcome to My Creative Time's November Release Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from Miss Leanne's blog, if not please head over to Miss Emma's for the start!  Remember there is always wonderful goodies to win!!
  I hope you've enjoyed all the wonderful projects my design team sisters created!  I'm so in love with Miss Emma's newest stamps and dies.  I love that she always finds a way to have her new release coordinate with older ones, while still keeping it fresh!
Today I have a card that I made for my daughter's shower.  My project today may seem a bit simple, however there is a method to my madness!  lol!  At some point I'm planning on making her a "Project Life" style album.  So I thought that I could cut her card down to fit in a pocket.  That why everything is off to the side and not a lot of foo foo! :)
Don't you just love the edge die!!!  You get 6 different edges in one that's a deal!

Scrapping The Little Things ~ Go Stanford!

Good Monday to you, I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Since it's Scrapping The Little Things over at My Creative Time,  I'm sharing with you a "Project Life" Style layout with you. 
If you haven't tried this style of scrapbooking, you should!  It's awesome because you can do quick and traditional styles together.  Just mix and match the different pockets and you have a beautiful album!
yes, I still need to journal...I always have trouble with that part :)

I stamped the football player on white paper then cut him out.  The football was done the same way and then popped up on the stitched circle die. 

I used the banner from Vintage Stitched Label dies, stamped "defense and offense" on both ends then cut it in the middle.

This tag is perfect for journaling!  This layout took about 10 minutes to complete.  You really could get a whole album finished in a day with the pocket method and just a few stamps and dies!

MCT ~ Inspire Me Tuesday ~ it's a shower!

Hi everyone happy Tuesday!  I had a yesterday off and I got so much done around my house, laundry, cleaning blinds and fans, and even a little bit of crafting!  It was a GOOD DAY!  If you had a long weekend I hope you got to enjoy it too!
Today is Inspire Me Tuesday over at My Creative Time!  For those of us on the schedule today, we are to find something to inspire us.  When I was on Pinterest the last week I came upon  really cool quilting blog.  I don't quilt, however I do love the way quilters put fabric together.  It's quite an art!  I was really drawn to this picture of fabrics.  Probably since it the colors of my daughter's wedding.  I know I'm at it again with the wedding...  :)

I wanted to make a bunting banner for her shower to hang over on of the tables.

I actually made three strands to hang above a table, but wasn't able to get a good picture with all three about the table, so I took two of the strands outside for the picture :)
It's hard to see that I used two different embossing folders on one of the solid purples and the grey.

Over the next few weeks I will be sharing different items that we are using at her shower.  After her shower then I'll share the complete look.
