My Creative Time September Sneak Peek #1


Are you ready for a fun My Creative Time Mini Release?  Emma's got some awesome new products being released on Friday, and today I'm giving you a peak at All Around Goodies!  My A2 size card is jam-packed with products using a variety of MCT stamps and dies, along with some pretty Simple Stories patterned paper.


For the adorable ornaments, I used the dies included in Warm Holiday Fun.  I love the little added detail of ornament hangers included with these dies!  "Merry Christmas" is from All Around Christmas, stamped on a banner made with the Build a Banner Kit.  Don't you love those sparkly square buttons from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique?


Here's where the All Around Goodies comes into play.  Emma has come up with another set that coordinates with her Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies.  This is a must-have stamp set as the season of making goodies for friends and families is almost upon us!  The tree that I used in the center is from All Around Christmas.  I just love how you can mix and match Emma's stamps!


I printed out our family name on my printer.  Do you wonder how I got it centered so well?


I began by printing the sentiment on rustic cream cardstock.  I then used a ruler to make lines indicating the center of the sentiment.


The lines helped me lay my Stitched Oval Die in perfect position on top of the paper, ensuring a perfect cut!

Sneak Peek Giveaway Time!
With all of our Sneak Peek weeks, Emma likes to do some FUN giveaways!

For a chance 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 just have more chances to win!
