My Creative Time August Sneak Peek #2


Before I get started, I'd like to welcome my new followers and visitors from Everyday Cricut, and I want to thank everybody for their sweet comments!  I really appreciate all of you!  The fun continues today with our second My Creative Time sneak peek!  My card today is very simple.  I wanted to showcase this adorable patterned paper that I just got at the Scrapbook Expo last weekend.  It's called Mischievous, by My Mind's Eye, and I couldn't resist this little rag doll and pumpkins.  Too cute!


Here's the sneak peek for today!  Emma has come out with a new die and coordinating stamp called Fancy Frame.  It's a great size that will work well with so many different My Creative Time sentiments. The adorable sentiment that I used is another sneak peek.  It's from a stamp set called Mixed Holiday Sentiments, and I love this set!  Isn't that a great spooky Halloween font?  I stamped it on more of the patterned paper from the Mischievous collection.


I used some crinkle ribbon to make a bow, and then attached a cute brad that coordinates with the patterned paper.  I actually removed the metal prongs of the brad with pliers and then attached it to my bow using my hot glue gun.

Listen up "My Creative Time" friends!  We are giving you an opportunity to win the BEST PRIZES EVER during Sneak Peek Week, with a total of SIX winners being announced during Friday's Stamp release!  All you have to do is leave a comment HERE, as well as on the rest of the design team's blogs for a chance.  There are some AWESOME prizes with this release!  Do you want to know what the "GRAND PRIZE" is?  One lucky winner will be an "Honorary Guest Designer" for the September stamp release.  Yep!  You heard that right!  One winner will receive all four of the new stamps, along with the dies for that month and will be able to join us for the Sneak Peek Week, along with the blog hop!  Here's what to do to qualify:

1.  Spread the word to the world on Facebook & to whatever connections you have about this release.  Let us know that you did so on My Creative Time's Facebook page, OR just tag Emma in your post!

2.  Just comment on ALL of the designers' blogs EVERY DAY during Sneak Peek Week!  That's ALL you have to do to qualify for the BEST giveaways ever!

The winners will "randomly" get chosen, and Emma will announce all six winners on Friday, August 19th, at 8:00 AM PST in her video during the release of this AMAZING new stamp collection and dies! Good luck!

Now, because I am guest designing at Everyday Cricut this week, Emma has also donated her My One and Only Stamp Set shown below for me to give away!  Just leave a comment on this post by Saturday at midnight, and I'll announce the winner on Sunday!  Also, if you haven't visited Everyday Cricut today, please stop by to see another fun new project that I have posted over there.  And be sure to stop by My Creative Time to see Emma's sneak peek and to get links to all of the designers' fun sneak peek projects!

I agree with everyone on the crinkle ribbon - so awesome! BTW, I saw from your intro this week on Everyday Cricut that you have only been doing this for about 2 years! Wow Katie - you have accomplished much - Congrats! You really inspired me to keep going. It just shows that you don't need a ton of experience - just some awesome ideas and a great eye and you have that. Congrats again on the exciting week!
