Happy Earth Day Scrapping the Little Things ~ Solvang!

Happy Monday and Happy Earth Day!!!  Welcome to My Creative Time's Scrapping the Little Things!  Since today is Earth Day, we were asked to use something recycled on our projects.  I was given a "pampering" gift from a good friend for Christmas.  It was a jar with some fun pampering items and a cute little tag on it.  I wonder if she'll notice that I used it on my layout?  :)
This layout is from a quick trip that I took in February.  On the way home from San Diego we stopped  in the cute little Dutch town of Solvang and the beach.  This trip was truly "pampering" so her sweet tag was the PERFECT recycled item to use!

MCT April 24th Edition Release Blog Hop ~ Congrats!


Hi paper lovin' peeps!  Welcome to My Creative Time's April Release Blog Hop!  Remember that with our hops there are always wonderful prizes, so don't forget to read the details at the bottom of my post!  Can believe all the wonderful projects the girls have been sharing with you this week?!!!!  I'm in such awe of all of them!  Sometimes I still can't believe I'm actually on this design team with such fabulous talent!  I can't forget to mention how awesome Miss Emma is, with all of her wonderful ideas for stamps and dies!!!  It's always so exciting for me to see what she's come up with next!!!! 
 
Anyway, I should get back to why you're here!  You should have arrived here Miss Kim's blog!  I just know she has something fabbie to show you!  If you just popped in to see me, well why thank you, but make sure you head over to Miss Emma's for the start!  You certainly don't have to comment on every one's blogs, however it does give you more chance to win!   :)

 
This card is made for my nephew who recently got married.  They gave her family about 5 days to plan (he's in the army).  Some of us friends and family are throwing her an after wedding, wedding shower soon.  I wanted to keep this card super simple (which if you've followed me for any length of time, is very hard for me!!!) since they both are a "no frills couple"!!!

 
I used the filament stamp from the light bulb die to make the heart and filled it with glossy accents.



This is my nephew and his new bride at the court house and then at their small reception!  They really loved the "no fuss no muss" day!

My Creative Time April Release Day 2 ~ Thinking of You!

 
Welcome to My Creative Time's April Release! 
 Miss Emma has done it again...with this Awesome HUGE release!  There is sooo much in this release, I had a hard time deciding what to use!  :)  For my project I went with the "I'm Here for you Rain or Shine Stamp Set" and "Stitched Daisy Die".  


 
I punched two holes in the daisy center to create a button.  I was really trying to make my card flat, but I just can't seem to do it...no matter how hard I try! lol!

"Pre-sneak party" blog hop!


 
Welcome to our very first "Pre-sneak party" blog hop at My Creative Time!  You should have arrived here from the fabulous Miss Leanne, if not head over to Miss Emma's for the start! Since this is a bigger release than usual, we want to share as much as we can before our sneaks starting on Monday, April 15th along with our  HUGE release on Friday, April 19th @ 8am.   
 
Now I've been telling you for the past few weeks how life has been keeping me busy and haven't been able to craft as much as I'd like.  Well, now I have one more thing that's happened...my daughter is engaged!  (this will get me back in my craft room for sure!)  We are so excited for her and her fiancĂ©...we are truly blessed!
 
So of course I had to come up with a project for her wedding...a Save the Date post card.  I'm not sure if she'll want this one, but it's a start. (sorry the pictures are not great, it's suppose to be plum and gray)
 

 
 I'm not sure if you noticed or not, but we decided NOT to state the products each of us used on our projects today! The reason for this is because we wanted to play a game w/all of YOU! Yep, we want YOU to guess what is the new "item" we are using today! Leave your answer in the comments in this post for a chance to win one of the new releases!
 
 
All stamps are from My Creative Time!
"GIVEAWAY ALERT"

Would you like to win one of the AMAZING new sets from this release? All you have to do is guess what is the new item on our projects that we are ALL featuring today & leave a comment w/your answer! Winner will be announced on our "official" first day of sneak peeks on Monday, April 15! You have up to Saturday, April 13th at midnight to leave your comments! Good luck! ;)

Your next stop is Miss Nancy!

3D Wednesday ~ Hello Spring!




Hello Paper Lovers!  Welcome to My Creative Time's 3D Wednesday!  Let first start off and say...I'm SOOOO SORRY for not posting my normal 3 times a week!  My life is a bit crazy right now and will stay this way until about mid May!  So I hope you will be patient with me until then...I know I sound like a broken record.  :)

OK, enough of me, now on to my project...today I wanted to come up with a home decor project.  I found this sweet little bird house at Michael's awhile back and thought they would be darling covered with some beautiful paper!  Yep! I think I was right!  Now if I had really been thinking ahead I could have made a bunch of these as place setting cards for Easter! Just stamping the name on the tag.  Wouldn't that have been over the top cute!  


All I did was paint the house, cover the roof with paper, added bows, button, and a tag.  A little bit of kraft shred and birdie for more details!  It was really quick and easy!
