MCT April Sneak Peek #1


It's finally here!  Sneak Peek week for My Creative Time's HUGE April release!  I have had so much fun playing with all of the new product, and I've only scratched the surface!  For today's project, I made a 4 1/4" square card.  I used a pie chart from Silhouette's Online Store to make my sunburst pattern.  If you are interested in knowing how to make one of these I have a video tutorial.


Now, here are the fun new goodies!  How adorable is this light bulb???  It's from the new My Creative Time You're Brilliant stamp and die set!  I just adore it!  It comes with layers, which allowed me to add the black and silver to the base of the bulb.  The funny sentiment is also from this set.  I used one of the wrapper dies from MCT's Treat Slider Box (trimmed down a bit) for my sentiment.  You will have lots of fun with this set!

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

We would like to announce a winner every day, so this is what you have to do to qualify:  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!  The thing we are switching up this time is that Emma will be picking a winner each night and announcing the winner the next morning!  Example:  for Monday's sneak, leave your comments here and share on Facebook, and then Emma will announce Monday's winner on Tuesday morning!  That means a winner will be announced every day during sneaks!

*** SPREAD THE WORD TO THE WORLD ON FACEBOOK about this release and to whatever connections you may have!  Let us know on "My Creative Time's" FB page here that you did so!  OR you can just tag Emma in your post! ***

Good luck!
