My Creative Time September Sneak Peek #2


It's Day 2 of the sneak peeks of My Creative Time's September stamp release!  The set I am showcasing today, Anyday Bingo & Crossword, is so much fun!  I focused on the crossword part of the set for my A2 size card.


Anyday Bingo & Crossword comes with the boxes, that I stamped on pink paper, and the letters, which I added with red ink.  Since you can build any size crossword with any number of boxes and an entire alphabet is included in the set, you can make anything you want!  After creating my "Birthday Wishes" crossword, I cut it out with regular scissors, inked up the edges, and adhered it to my patterned paper.


My cute little flowers are cut from the Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge at 1 3/4".  The stems are cut at 2" and the flowerpot is cut at 1" from Walk in My Garden.  I also added some twine and a cute brad to the flowerpot.

Listen up "My Creative Time" friends!  We are giving you an opportunity to win the BEST PRIZES 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!  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 designer's blogs EVERY DAY during Sneak Peek Week!  That's ALL you have to do to qualify for the giveaways!

The winners will "randomly" get chosen, and Emma will announce all six winners on Friday, September 16th, at 8:00 AM PST, in her video during the release of this AMAZING new stamp collection and dies! Good luck!  Get onto Facebook now and start spreading the word!  And don't forget to stop by My Creative Time to see Emma's and the rest of the design team's projects!
