My Creative Time January Sneak Peek #1


Are you ready for another exciting week of My Creative Time Sneak Peeks?  There is so much fun in store for you!  Today I'm giving you a peek at an image from one of Emma's brand new sports stamp sets,  Soccer.  I'm so excited to have this set, since I have lots of soccer pics to scrap from when Eric was little.  I also have nieces and nephews who are just starting out their soccer careers, and how fun is it to be able to make cards for them?  I thought that this girl soccer player was so cute, so I went ahead and used it to make a card that I can send to one of my nieces in the fall.



This window card can easily be designed in a Gypsy, Cricut Craft Room, Design Studio, etc.  I made mine using the Silhouette Studio software, because I like the feature in there that will center shapes within shapes for me.  When I made my window inside of the larger rectangle, it centered it for me perfectly! The kraft card base is 4 1/2" x 11", scored at 5 1/2".  The black layer is 4" x 5 1/4", and the patterned layer is 3 3/4" x 5".  Both of these layers have a rectangle cut out from them that measures 2 3/4" x 2 1/4".  I also made the black frame by using that same size rectangle for the interior and a 3 1/4" x 2 3/4" rectangle for the exterior.  I adhered all of the layers together, tied a bow around them, and used pop dots to attach them to the card base, for some extra dimension.



Before adding my layers, I used Versamark in to stamp My Creative Time's cool Script Type Background (this will also be released this Friday) on the kraft card base.  I then stamped the girl from Soccer on top.



Here's another sneak!  This cute little tag die is from Emma's Teeny Tag Greetings, also being released this Friday.  Don't you just love it? It's perfect for the "Eat, Sleep, Play" sentiment from Soccer!

With all of our Sneak Peek Weeks, Emma likes to do some FUN giveaways!  To have chances to win, all you have to do is leave comments on our blogs!  You do NOT have to comment on every blog, but if you do, you will have MORE chances to win!


Also, you can spread the word to the world about this release on Facebook and to any other connections you may have.  Let us know on My Creative Time's Facebook page that you did so, OR you can just tag Emma in your post!


Emma will randomly pick and announce all winners in her video during the AWESOME release happening on Friday, January 21st at 12:01 PST.  Good luck!  Let's log into Facebook now and start spreading the word!  And be sure to stop by My Creative Time to see what Emma and the rest of the design team is sneaking for you today!!!

Here are the products I used for my card, not including the My Creative Time stamps and die (sorry, no pics allowed yet)!
