Scrapping the Little Things~MCT

Another weekend has gone by (insert sad face here) but we can look forward to another Scrapping the Little Things at My Creative Time! I just love this challenge so much. I have gotten more smash pages done since this challenge started. Sometimes we get lazy (I know I do) and just want avoid all the pictures to scrapbook!

Im so glad for Emma's products because it makes Smashing and Project Life so much easier! For my pages today, I worked on my wedding smash book. I love this book because it's totally related to weddings! I added this photo of my husband and I when we got married. I didn't want to cover the chapel with paper but I did add the Stitched Restroom Peeps Dies at the bottom of the page. I layered a few paper collecting to my second page and added several MCT products to finish it off. I have noticed my smashing style had gotten a lot cleaner then it was before. I used to add so much stuff to my pages which made it super bulky. I think either way is awesome and I'm sure I will continue to use this method. What do you guys think?

Scrapping the Little Things Monday

Happy Monday and welcome to another awesome My Creative Time Scrapping the Little Things! I love this series because it forces me to get me smash pages done. I have been having a hard time keeping up with my book and right now they are collecting dust. This was a quick and easy page I made using MCT products. This is a picture of myself, Emma and Liz when we hooked up for coffee and a Hobby Lobby stop of course :). Super simple and to the point!

Today we are show casing the Stitched Journal Dies and stamps. And if you are a smashy or Project Lifer, then you are going to love these!!!!! I cant believe how versatile these are!!!! I have so many ideas in my head!!! For my project today, I made this brag book for our neighbors who recently had a baby boy. Since the mommy's not a scrapper, I thought I would keep it simple. She can just slip the photos right inside the frames. I used several MCT products in this project. I just love it!

Scrapping the Little Things

Happy Monday! I hope you had a fabulous Easter! My poor husband had to work but I got a chance to spend some time with my family. Today is another fun and fabulous day at My Creative Time. Scrapping the Little Things is one of my favorite challenges because I get to play in my Smash book! And Miss Emma has so many stamps sets for those Smashers and those Project Life peeps! So heres a page I made using MCT stamps. I love smashing because its fun and simple.  No need to be perfect. To me, smashing is my private journal. I can add what ever I want without worrying about matching colors or measuring paper...Just let your imagination run wild.
