When we said there would last minute ideas, we weren't kidding!  Today my project is for the MOM that wants to do something quick and inexpensive!  I got items from the dollar bins at Target to create my little gift pack.  I picked items that had a large quantity for my dollar too.

I simply stamped on my die cut banner from Vintage Stitched Label Dies with the new Teeny Tag Holiday Stamp set, then attached to the pencil.  Tossed the fun items into the bag tied it up and added a googley eye to the knot!  Talk about quick and easy!!!!  I think the 5-7 year olds that are getting these will LOVE them.  Even the girls will love the vampire teeth!  :)

MCT 27th Edition Blog Hop ~ You're Invited!

 
Good morning and happy Friday! 
Welcome to My Creative Time's October Release Blog Hop, I can hardly believe it's finally here!  This release has been so fun, I really hope you've enjoyed the week as much as I have! 
 
You should have arrived here from Miss Leanne.  If not then be sure to head over to Miss Emma's blog Miss Emma for the start.  I know you won't want to miss a thing!

 
My project is an invitation for our annual Christmas Potluck Party.  Since I decorated the "stamp" area, I would not mail these without an envelope.  I used "merry, and, bright, and the ticket" from the Holiday Ticket stamp set!  If you have a large stamp block you could put all the stamps using the same color on the block and stamp one time.  Doing it this way would allow you to get a bunch done fairly quick!
 
 
I used the Build a Banner stitched circle die then heat embossed the white powder.  Once dry, I used a gold pen and gold stickles on the little holly leaves.

A bit of green and red stickles adds sooo much in person.  Oh, I almost forgot that added small amount of diamond stickles to the trees.  :)  I'm having a thing for stickles lately...oh who am I kidding, I always want sparkle on my projects!

 
recipe:
My Creative Time
 
Extras
My Minds Eye ~ pattern paper
Stampin Up ink
stickles
Versamark
white embossing powder
gold pen

So today I get to share with you this wonderful Stitched Scallop Envelope die!  It's so awesome and it perfectly coordinates with the Stitched 3x4 Journal die! 
 
 
 
First I heat embossed on my cut envelope.  Once dry and cooled off, I colored with copic markers.  Of course I couldn't leave well enough alone, so I added a bit of stickles to the kite!

 
Embossing gave me perfect lines to color in!  I just love it!

MCT Sneak Peek Day #3 ~ Cookie Time!

 
Good Morning!  I can't believe it's already Wednesday and we're half way through My Creative Time's October Release!  Boy this week has gone by quickly, well I'd say that means we've been having lots of fun!  :)
 
Today I'm showcasing the Small Bow Die!  I thought it would be cute for a food favor wrap.  YUMMY!!!
The first thing I did was cut a brown lunch bag and then border punched both sides.  Once I wrapper the cookies up with the paper bag, I then cut a narrow strip and the bow from the same paper.
 

 
Before attaching the bow to the strip, I tried the little "noel" tag on. Super easy and would be super cute on table waiting for your guests at your next gathering!

Extras
Simple Stories pattern paper
