Throwback Thursday Challenge!

Welcome to another wonderful Throwback Thursday Challenge at My Creative Time! Today's challenge is to make a project involving Valentines Day or Love..When I think of Valentines Day, I think of flowers. This was a great opportunity for me to use my Flower Shoppe Cart..Love how my paper flowers turned out! I made this card for my hubby for the big V day.. I added some beautiful trim which I received from my friend Zoe. It went perfect with the card! Thanks Zoe! The flowers were cut at 3 inches..I cut part of the smaller flower to change size. The heart is actually part of a dollie I found at the dollar store. I used pearls for the outline of the heart. I used the 100% Sweetness stamp set for my sentiment.

Welcome to another fabulous 3D Wednesday at My Creative Time!! It has been a crazy week at home due to some sickie kids and a sickie hubby!! Thank goodness everyone is getting better because it sure took a lot out of me!

 For my project, I made a cute valentine home decor..I was inspired by a picture I found on Pinterest. Here is the link. Instead of using photo's, I made some flowers using Miss Emma's wonderful stamps. For my leaves, I used the Teeny Tag Greetings set. How cute is that!! Unfortunately the candy didn't last very long at my house..hee hee....I bought the tin bucket in the dollar section at Target. I found the lit branches at Michael's. The battery box is hidden inside the tin bucket.

MCT's January Stamp Release BLOG HOP

Welcome to the My Creative Time's January Stamp Release Blog Hop! If you came from Liz's blog you are in the right place. Its been an awesome week and now we get to show you all of the new stamps Miss Emma has been working on. And boy, did she do a fabulous job! I'm having so much fun playing with these stamps that my family has to pry me out of my scrappy happy place! Hee hee..Today, I will be showing you a card using the new Grand Slam set. I do have to admit that these sports themed projects are a little challenging.. It's only because my kids are not in any sports..I do have a ton of nieces and nephews who do play sports..(about 18 of them, and 5 great nieces and nephews!!!!) I love how this card turned out. I stamped the BB player image on designer paper using embossing ink. I then embossed the image with clear embossing powder. Fussy cutting the image was a challenge but I think it came out pretty cool. I used the  Script Type Backgrounds stamp set for my background. The base of the card is 5 by 4 1/2 inches.

This new stamp set is from the MCT More Gift Card Sentiments.I made the gift card holder using the Embossed Gift Card Holder die  I used DCWV Adhesive Fabric Paper. I had to run the die a few times through my machine but it worked! Yes its fabric!

3D Wednesday with MCT!

Welcome to My Creative Time's 3D Wednesday! Today's challenge is to create a 3D project that is not a card or a layout. For my project, I made a shadow box of our cute fur baby Roxi. I love this picture of Roxi and wanted to display it in a special way. I used the All Around Birthday stamp set  and the Scallop and Stitched Circle Die set to make the clock. The clock hands are from Tim Holtz of course. For the name plate, I used the Build a Banner Kit.  I got the letters and numbers from the Any Day Bingo and Crossword set. I then added a border punch around the frame. Isn't my fur baby cute!!!

Here are the measurements for the box I'm sure there are a ton of tutorials out there for the box but this was my take on it. FYI, I'm not good at instructions when it comes to measurements but I managed to take a few photos of what I did.

 5 3/4 by 4 1/2
Score on each side at 1 inch
Score on each side at 1 1/8 inch
Draw out center box and cut out
(Front of box)

5 1/2 and 4 1/2
Score on each side at 1 inch
(back of box)

3 3/4 and 1 inch
Score at 1/8 on each side
(This is your center piece for your photo)

It should look something like this. Add the small strip to the inside flaps of the back of the box. Adherer the front piece to the back piece of the box. Hopefully it will all line really hope that made sense. If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Oh and please stop by the DT blogs for more inspiration! Big crafty hugs!

Shadow Box

Hi everyone!! I just wanted to share this quick project with you today. I made this shadow box using Tim Holtz configuration boxes. Most of the embellishments are also Tim Holtz except the Marion Smith trinket  flower and the bird cage. My favorite part was the distressed bible that I found on a baptism favor. I inked all the edges of the tiny book...I made this for my awesome dad who recently lost his mommy..I hope this will keep her in his memory forever..

Let me know what you think about the photos. I used my iPhone and edited them with an app called photogene2..I'm hooked on this app!!! Anyways, I hope you guys are having an awesome day!

Throwback Thursday Challenge

Welcome to the first 2012 Throwback Thursday Challenge!! For today's challenge, we are using a Sports cartridge. If you don't own a Sports cartridge (like me) then use any cartridge & make it into a "Sports" like card OR layout! I have to admit, these sports themed challenges are INDEED a challenge for me!!

For my project, I made this LO of my daughter and her soccer team. This was a great way for me to finally get these pictures in an album..Yea I know, it was taken five years ago...but that's the best thing about these challenges..They force you to get these pictures out your photo boxes!

 I used the Paper Dolls Dress Up Cartridge to cut the little soccer player out. She is cut at 6 inches. For my background, I stamped the word "soccer" using the Sports Sentiments Stamp set. I drew a  grid line on the paper before I stamped the image. I then erased the pencil markings after I was done with the stamping. I think it gave it a cool and unique background. Since I didn't have a sports themed cart, I cut a large circle in white to represent the ball. I added bling around the circle to give it a finished look. I also added bling to the bottom of the girls cleats. I think the layout came out cute but I'm not sure if I was totally happy..but Miss Emma always say, there is no mistakes in paper crafting..:) Sorry for the bad lighting..I didn't have any natural light and the flash was not on my side..
