Black Friday Sale, Hop & Mini Release for your December Days!

Happy Black Friday and welcome to our "Special Black Friday Sale & Mini Release for your December Days"!  Today we have a couple of new stamp sets and dies for you to document your special December events!  These stamps and dies are available for PRE-ORDER and will start shipping on Tuesday, December 3rd!  Not only are these stamps perfect for your "December Dailies", but they are also perfect for ALL of your Christmas cards, layouts, smash books, and even your 3-D items!

I had fun pulling old pictures off of my computer that represent our December family traditions, and then I used my Cinch to make a little mini-album!  I printed all of the pictures at 4.3" x 4.22" on matte photo paper and then ran them through my Vagabond with the Stitched Journal Die.   I used that die for my cover too, with a combination of kraft and red cardstock and patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye Christmas 6x6 pack.  Then I added a cute sentiment and a circle image that are both from the new A Day in December stamp set.  I just love this set!  And, of course, Emma thought of everything and made that circle stamp just the right size to use with her Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies

A Day in December has lots of wonderful phrases that fit the Christmas season perfectly.  I stamped this one on some white cardstock cut with the banner die from Chocolate Greetings.

On the back of each picture, I created a spot for journaling using the new Get Schooled stamp set.  I know this is going to be a "go to" set for me.  It's made to work with the new 4x4 Journal Die, which makes it just perfect for the 3x4 Stitched Journal Die as well!  The candy canes are from A Day in December, as are the sentiments that I used on the rest of my photos.

The Stitched Journal Tab Die made the perfect sized element for this sweet sentiment!

Unfortunately, the dies did not arrive in time for the design team to be able to use them for today's projects.  I hand cut the little arrow here, but I will soon have a die that was made just for it!

Here are pics of all of the new stamps and dies.  So fun!

Okay, here is the best part.  Everyone who places an order this weekend will receive this FREE STAMP called "Shine Bright"!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm posting this a day early in case any of you want to make these cute little turkeys for your Thanksgiving table!  There is a great tutorial on how to make these on the Silhouette blog.  I got the turkey cut and the scalloped cupcake wrapper cut from the Silhouette Online Store.

My nieces and nephews love my pumpkin bread, so I  thought it would be fun to turn it into muffins for them this year!  

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Be sure to stop by on Friday for our first ever My Creative Time Black Friday blog hop!  We will be featuring some BRAND NEW products that you will love for documenting your December!

40th Birthday Tag

My friend is turning 40 this weekend, so I made this tag to attach to her gift, using lots of My Creative Time products.  For the tag base, I cut one of the tags from Tag Dies in green and pink.  After stamping the green layer with the Build a Chevy Background with Versamark ink, I adhered the two tags together, extending the pink one about an inch lower than the green.

Did you see my friend Kim Harris's adorable card from our blog hop on Friday?  She inspired me by using the girl from the Classy Girl & Furbaby Dies with a big cocktail cut with the Stitched Cocktail Party Dies.  The cute little purse is from the Classy Girl Accessories dies.

I made my rosette with the Scalloped Stitched Rosette Dies, adhering a stitched circle from Build a Banner to the top of it.  That made a little base for me to glue my numbers, from Stitched 4x6 Journal Die.  To make my sentiment, I used parts of a couple of different stamps from More of My Favorite Sayings, stamping them on a banner made with the Vintage Stitched Label Dies.
