21st Birthday Card


My niece just turned 21, so I had fun making a wine glass shaped card for her using a cut from the Cricut Alphabet cartridge.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Just a Number stamp set!

Aging to Perfection!

Hello!  It's been quite a while, and it feels so weird to not be crafting and blogging!  June was quite busy with the end of the school year and then our move to a new home.  Since then my days have been filled with decorating our new space, enjoying a long visit with good friends who travelled here from Philadelphia, and lots of get-togethers with friends and families.  I'm so thankful that this move happened in the summer, and it's given me the time to get everything organized so that I'll be all settled when school starts up again next month!


I am just starting to get into my craft room.  July is a big birthday month for my family, and my dad has a big one this year:  his 80th!  I made this card for him using the cute truck cut from the Cricut  Just Because Cards cartridge and the mountains from the Pop-Up Neighborhood cartridge.  The sentiment is from My Creative Time's Wow! So Many Candles!

MCT Gift Card Giving & Good-bye For Now


It's a bittersweet day on the blog today.  After being with Emma on the My Creative Time design team since it began, I am stepping down.  I have loved every minute of working with Emma and the rest of the team, but with an upcoming  move and more responsibilities in my job, it's time to step down.  Thank you, Emma, for everything!  You know I will keep using your AMAZING stamps and dies whenever I have a chance!

Now, today is Gift Card Giving with My Creative Time!  Today I made a card for a special graduate! I used the Surprise Pop-Out Card Die and decorated it with stamps and dies from Grad Night!


On the inside, I added a pocket made with the Stitched Gift Card Pocket Die.  I love this die; it's the perfect way to add a gift card to your card! 

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog for more Gift Card Giving inspiration!  And thank you to all of you who have left such nice comments on my little blog over the years; I've loved reading all of them!  Happy crafting!

MCT 3D Wednesday!

It's 3D Wednesday with My Creative Time!  It's just 2 1/2 weeks until summer vacation for me - the perfect time to pull out the adorable 2x2 Note Holder Die and make a cute little summer themed post-it note holder!  I used some fun Simple Stories patterned paper with the die.  Then I stamped a sentiment from the Sit Back & Relax stamp and die set onto a die cut made with one of the Ribbon End Dies.  The cute little sunglasses were made with a die from Berry Special.


Be sure to stop by Emma's blog for some more 3D Wednesday inspiration!

MCT Tag It Tuesday


It's Tag It Tuesday with My Creative Time!  The new Happy Birthday Die is the perfect size for using on a tag!  I pulled out the Chunky Stitched Tag Dies and stamped on part of the fireworks stamp from Huge Celebration.  To give this stamp a little more dimension, I covered up most of the stars with die cut stars from 4x4 Journal Die + More.  All of the inking I did was with Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
