MCT March Sneak Peek #1


Welcome to Day One of the My Creative Time March Sneak Peeks!  Emma is doing something a little different this month.  You can actually order the new stamps sets in her store now!  You'll want to do so quickly, because she has something fun up her sleeve for everybody on Friday!

For my project, I made a tea dispenser.  I've been dying to make one of these ever since I saw the one my friend Linda created on The Paper Boutique.  Linda is so talented; she actually created this design, and with her video instructions I was able to make one quite easily.  I didn't even need my die-cut machines to make this box!  Click here for her awesome tutorial.


To decorate my box, I got to use My Creative Time's new Tea Party stamp set.  Among other images, there are three adorable tea pots!  I colored each one with red Copics.


To frame my tea pots, I cut this pretty shape and its shadow from the Cricut Elegant Edges cartridge at 2 1/4".


I cut the oblong shape at 3".  The adorable sentiment is also from Tea Party.  This is my favorite image, so it's on the front of the tea dispenser.


I originally made this thinking I would give it away, but the red matches my red Kitchen Aid mixer, toaster, and blender so well that it's found a home in my kitchen. :-)

Here's a peek at the entire Tea Party stamp set:
