"Teacher Off Duty" and Personalized Tumblers


My last day of school was Friday!  To celebrate, I made these for my teammates.  The cute tumblers are from saveacup.com and the "teacher off duty" svg is from kristinamandadesigns.com.  I added hearts from the built in shapes in Cricut Design Space.


Then, for each of my students, I decorated one with their name, using their favorite colors.  I used the KG Always a Good Time font, and to make the embellishment, I stretched out a square shape and welded a star on top.  It was a fun end of the year gift, and the kids loved them!

MCT 80th Edition Release Sneak Peek #4

Are you ready for one last day of My Creative Time sneak peeks?  Today we are sneaking an adorable new die to dress up your treat bags:  Pretty Treat Topper!


I love this new die!  It makes it so easy to make a little treat look special!  I dressed up a little bag of cookies by die cutting the two pieces (the main piece and the layer) with patterned paper from Echo Park's A Perfect Summer collection.  Then I die cut the adorable popsicle from the new Anything is Popsicle set that we sneaked earlier this week, and used a sentiment from that set as well.  A few sequins finished it off!

MCT 80th Edition Release Sneak Peek #3

We've got another sneak peek of the My Creative Time 80th Edition release for you!  Today we are sneaking two new sets!  You're Sew Special is an adorable new stamp die set full of adorable sewing related images, coordinating dies and sentiments!  And Thanks Sew Much, our freebie for this month, has 5 great sentiments that work really well with You're Sew Special!  Thanks Sew Much is free with your order this Friday, June 15, 2018, if you are one of the first 50 shoppers, beginning at 8 AM PST.  Once 50 shoppers come through, it will be available for purchase.


The images in You're Sew Special are just too cute!  I stamped the dress form, sewing machine and scissors onto Strathmore Bristol Cardstock and colored them with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.  I stamped a second layer of the dress form onto patterned paper so that I could fussy cut and add a layer to make it look like there was an actual dress on the form.  To ground these items, I made a little square frame using the Stitched Square Dies Inside & Out and then stamped one of the sentiments from Thanks Sew Much inside.

MCT 80th Edition Release Sneak Peek #2

Are you ready for another day of the My Creative Time 80th Edition Release sneak peeks?  Today we have a darling stamp and die set to share with you:  Never Stop Dreaming.  This set has 2 gorgeous dreamcatcher stamps with coordinating dies, along with lots of beautiful sentiments.


The dreamcatcher stamps are so stunning that I wanted one to be the focal point of my card.  I heat embossed it in white embossing powder on Strathmore Bristol Cardstock and then watercolored over it, using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, and Squeezed Lemonade.  I then trimmed this piece with one of the MORE Stitched Rectangular Dies and finished off this card with a sentiment from Never Stop Dreaming.  Very easy to make, but I love the result!

MCT 80th Edition Release Sneak Peek #1

It's day 1 of My Creative Time's 80th Edition Sneak Peeks!  We have quite an adorable release to share with you this week!  First off is the adorable Anything is Popsicle set.  This is such a cute stamp and die set, perfect for summer!


I had one last birthday card to make for a student this week (I know, I'm not out of school yet!  4 more days to go!), and I just had to use these cute new popsicle dies!  As you can see, they come with all sorts of layers and face stamps, a few of which I've used here.  There are also many fun sentiments included, and I stamped the ones I chose onto speech bubbles made with the Fun Speech Bubbles dies.  Finally, I mounted all of them on a background made with one of the Stitched Postage Frame Dies. Such a fun little summer birthday card!

MCT Throwback Thursday


It's Throwback Thursday with My Creative Time!  Time to pull out those older MCT sets and make a fun project!  For my card today I used one of my favorite banners dies from the Stitched Party Die set.  I also used one of all-time favorite staples:  Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More.  I paired these with a sentiment from one of our newer sets:  Springtime Smiles.  I just love the font combination in this set!

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog for more Throwback Thursday inspiration!
