Monday Madness....Imagine That!

Welcome to another Monday Madness..Imagine That! I love using my Imagine but sometimes I forget how wonderful it is! I am in love with Teresa Collins Black and White Cricut Cartridge..Im so glad I bought it! Its well worth it! And look how fabulous it looks with My Creative Time stamps!! I made this card for my BFF who is going to get married in June. I used an EK success punch for the squares but you can use your paper trimmer for this card. The card is 5 by 6 1/2 inches in length. I love how it turned out.

My Creative Time's February Stamp release BLOG HOP!

Welcome to the My Creative Time's February Stamp Release Blog Hop. If you came from Liz's blog, you are in the right place. Ok so this week has been a little crazy for me..I've been sick with a sinus infection but manage to get some crafty time in..For those of you who asked, yes the last mini album I made took a long time...Let's just say my poor house was not the cleanest but at least the family was you seen all the beautiful projects the design team members have made so far?? I was left speechless!! They totally rocked this release! I'm loving this set because it's so versatile..I especially love the background stamps! Ok enough blabbing..I have a lot to show you today!! For my project I created yet another Spring mini album using several of Miss Emma's stamps and dies. I cut the shape of the mini using the MCT XL Label Die...I used thin cereal box  for my base..I then covered it using designer paper.

I cut this tiny vellum envelope with my Cricut..It was in my stash so I'm not sure which cartridge I used. Check out my cute little tags!

The window has a hinge which opens to reveal the beautiful flowers..

I'm loving this background stamp set!!

Tags using the Curly Label Die.

I used the Spring Chicken Background here...LOVE IT!

Since the "HELLO" was stamped on the glitter part of the paper, the image was as not crisp. But I think it's just as beautiful!

MCT Sneak Peek Day #2

Welcome to day #2 of the MCT Sneak Peek release! I am so excited about this release! These stamps can really be added to anything!!! I am in love with Emma's background stamps! We are showcasing the Chicken Wire and Flower Background set..This set can be used in so many ways..For my project, I used this set to stamp my tags in my mini album. I used the Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime Collection with this set! It went perfect with the Spring time theme!! I just love how the album turned out!!
My album is made out of recycled cereal boxes..For my blue flower, I used the Scallop and Stitched Circle Die Set. Its made out of Melissa Frances Crepe Paper! LOVE IT!! Behind the bunny I added a cute little egg using the Hello Spring set.

I love how chunky this album is!!

I tucked my tags inside the allbum..I made them using the XL label Die.

Here is a closer look at the my tags..I used the Chicken Wire and Flower Background. I then distressed them using Tim Holz vintage photo.

I used the egg die from Happy Hunting to make more tags. How cute are these!!

I made a small tag book for more journaling..

Can you see the small eggs tucked behing the flowers? Yep..more tags!!

Here's a closer look a the tags..

They are connected togehter with a small chain loop..It closes flat to sit inside the album..So much room for small photos or journaling..Well I hope you enjoyed todays sneak peak. Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created

Monday Madness Imagine That!

Welcome to another Monday Madness Imagine That at My Creative Time!! Wow! This weekend has gone so fast!!! Two birthday parties and the Super Bowl?? This is a tired mommy! Even with the madness, I was able to make this simple card using my Imagine. Its been a while since Ive actually used the print option on my machine. My Imagine is my primary machine for all my cuts. (too lazy to get the other machines out, lol) I used the Nursery Tails Imagine Cart for my background. It was cut at 5 by 7. The mushroom, butterfly and firefly were cut at 5 inches. I used the layer option for the firefly and the butterfly and popped them up on dimensionals. For my sentiment, I use the Teeny Tag Greetings set. I really wanted to keep it simple but some how I ended up adding some trim from Frog Feathers..I think it turned out cute.

I hope you've enjoyed today's project. I know it was a little simple but sometimes simple is good! Please make sure you stop by the FAB design team's blog and check out their projects! Big crafty hugs!
