Hi! And Welcome to MCT's December stamp release sneak peek Day 1!! 
Today I am showcasing the super sweet "Lots of Love" stamp and die set!  It has so many sweet sayings and fun stamps !  You are going to LOVE it!! :)

I added a few stickers I had on hand.

Friday, December 14, 2012

Thinking of U!

Just wanted to share a quick card I made for my Sister! 

 It was literally one of the quickest, easiest cards I have made, it took about 15 minutes from start to finish (instead of my usual 2 hours!!)


I used My Creative Time's Scallop and Stiched Circle Dies and Lower Case Fun Dies and a stamp from the Card Sentiments Stamp Set.

My Creative Time 12 Days of Christmas Day 11

Hi and welcome to day 11 of MCT's 12 Days of Christmas!

Today I have a little treat jar to share with you that was made by Jeffrey our Elf on the Shelf! ;)


First he whipped up some sugar cookie mix, put it in this cute little jar and decorated it with MCT's Vintage Stitched Label and Scallop and Stitched Circle Dies.  He then stamped the fun sentiment  from MCT's All Around Christmas set  and coordinating elf feet (he couldn't resist!) onto the Stitched Circle.  
He also typed up a little letter and cut it out with MCT's  Just Tags Dies.  


He told me he is planning on leaving this out for my girls the night before Christmas Eve since he knows we love to make cookies for Santa the day before Christmas.

My Creative Time 12 Days of Christmas Day 8

Hi and welcome to day 8 of My Creative Time's 12 Days of Christmas! 
I Hope you all had a great week and are enjoying all the Christmas ideas from everyone!  I know I am :)

For my project today I made a fun little Gingerbread House treat box from an SVG file by Lori Whitlock that I found in the Silhouette store. It was super simple to make and goes perfectly with the sentiment from MCT's From Our Family to Yours Stamp set!  


I stamped the sentiment on to the Stitched Curly Label Die which I adhered to the Curly Label die. Added a pretty red ribbon from May Arts and that was it!

My Creative Time 12 Days of Christmas

Hi! And welcome to day 4 of My Creative Time's 12 Days of Christmas!
For my project today I made a little Christmas tag using MCT's Tag Dies and Warm Holiday Fun Stamp set.


The stocking is from the Winter Frolic Cricut cartridge, it is cut out at 3 1/4".  Honestly I was planning on making something a little more involved but I hurt my back trying to fix a flat tire so I was not able to get the papers I needed, but it is so nice to know that with Emma's stamps and dies a cute little tag can be made in no time!!  :)   In fact I just may make all my Christmas tags by hand this year!!   Anyhoo,  the papers are all from the Jolly Holidays 12X12 paper pad from Recollections.

I used the mouse from Create A Critter 2!! Isn't he so cute!!! LOVE that cartridge so much!  He was cut out at 3 inches.  The Christmas tree is from the Winter Frolic cartridge and it was cut out at 4 inches.  All the backgound paper is from the MME 6X6 paper pad Merry.  The sentiment as well as the ornaments along the sides of the card are from My Creative Time's Warm Holiday Fun set!

My Creative Time~Scrapping the Little Things

Hi!  Happy Monday!! 
I hope you all had a nice weekend!  Today is "Scrapping the Little Things" over at My Creative Time.  This is the day that we showcase Project Life,  Smashbook or Project Life "like" layouts!

I honestly did not think I would ever get a Smashbook!  I didn't really know what they were or what they were for.....but the more I saw what everyone was doing with them, the more I liked them so I decided to give it a try! Now I think I'm going to be hooked!  It reminds me a lot of a scrapbook I made back when I was in high school.....many moons ago!!!  :) 

Here is my first attempt!! 




I'm actually pretty happy with how it turned out!  And it was a lot of fun.  I tend to save lots of paper mementos so this is ideal for me!!  I wanted to keep it as stress free and simple as possible, I didn't want it to turn it to another scrapbook that I get years behind on!  So I decided not to obsess with having it look "perfect" 

My son  (Joseph) is in band and I always save the concert programs and never know what to do with them! Well now I do!! It was so simple, glue in a Smashbook pocket and stick it in there (instead of a drawer!)  And this was the first time Joseph had to wear a tuxedo jacket to play so I had to have a picture of that!! I also used some scraps of paper and some die cuts I had in my stash.  I usually save cuts I make and end up not using.  The only thing I did that required a little work was cut out a few musical notes with my Cameo, otherwise I just used stuff I had on hand.  Like I said I really want to keep this fun and simple!  

I used My Creative Time stamps from the Just Simply Live and Cherish This Moment sets, both of these are PERFECT for "Smashing" with!! I also used a hot air balloon I had on hand that I had cut out with MCT's hot air balloon die!  

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

My Creative Time 3D Wednesday!

Hi and welcome to another My Creative Time 3D Wednesday!  For today Emma asked us to "alter something" :)  It could be anything.....a frame, a box, ect...
So I chose to alter a wooden frame I  picked up  at Michael's.  It was one of the unfinished wood frames that cost a dollar.

I love chicken decorations (for some reason! lol!) for my kitchen so I made this to hang up somewhere in there!


I forgot to take a picture of the frame before I covered it! oops!! :)

Anyway,  I started by painting the edges of the frame brown, I already had the paint on hand! Then I covered it with patterned paper from the Autumn Splendor collection by We R Memory Makers.  I used MCT's Spring Chicken Background stamps for the fun chicken wire behind the chicken!  The chicken is from the Country Life Cricut cartridge.  It is cut at 3".  I used MCTs Build A Banner Kit  for the banner and Anyday Bingo and Crossword for the letters.  I also used the Egg Dies from the Hello Spring set.  I stamped   the 5 cents from the Piles of Smiles set onto the layered tags from the Teeny Tag Greetings set.  The little stitched heart stamp on the tag is from the Beary Special Thoughts set!  I inked around EVERYTHING with TH distress ink in Vintage Photo and Tea Dye.  I added some raffia I had on hand and that was it!  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

My Creative Time Show Me Your Technique Tuesday!


Welcome to another MCT Show Me Your Technique mini blog hop!!
If you arrived here from Shar's blog then you are right where you should be! :)

Hop Line Up

Tracy <----Me! 

I made this rocker girl card using the Rock Princess cartridge.  The girl is cut out at 5 "
The sentiment is from My Creative Time's Small Talk set, I stamped it onto a tag I made from one of the dies from MCT's Build A Banner set.


For my technique I wanted to show you how I made this brick background for my card!

Here are the supplies I used:


Tim Hotlz Brick Wall embossing folder
Versa Mark ink
Clear embossing powder
Tim Holtz distress ink 
and Ranger blending tool

So for the first step, ink up your embossing folder with Versa Mark ink.  Then emboss a thick piece of white cardstock with it by running it through your cuttlebug.


Next pour clear embossing powder over the ink.


Heat it up to melt the powder.


Next, using your blending tool and ink color of your choice, ink over the embossed side


The ink will resist the embossed areas.
Wipe off excess ink with a paper towel or baby wipe
and that's it!! 


I made one with TH black ink and one using TH Fired Brick ink!
Thanks so much for hopping along with us!
