MCT January Sneak Peek #2


It's Day 2 of the January My Creative Time Sneak Peeks, and today I'm showcasing a great new set of dies to help you get ready for Valentine's Day:  Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO!  I used it to make a cute little 3x3 card.


This die set includes the adorable "xoxo" and three different size heart dies.  What I love about these hearts is that they stitch the positive and negative of your die cuts, which makes the possibilities of their uses just endless!  I had fun using all four of the dies to a make a "nestled die cut" look.  If you're interested in trying out this technique, you can see the video I made using the same technique on a tag last week.

***Sneak Peek Giveaway!***
We will be giving away the sets we are showcasing each day to ONE lucky winner!  For example, for the set we are showcasing on Wednesday, Emma will announce the winner on Thursday, and so on...
ALL you have to do to be eligible to win is to leave a comment on our blogs!  You are NOT required to comment on EVERY SINGLE blog, but the more you comment on, the better chance you have of winning!  VERY IMPORTANT, please leave your contact information with your comment, just in case "YOU" are the lucky winner!  For extra entries, you can spread the word about this release on Facebook, tweet about it, OR even instagram it! #mycreativetime!  GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY, & let's start spreading the word!

**Exciting News**
Since Emma didn't get to celebrate her 3rd Year Anniversary in December (2013), she decided to celebrate it this month with an EXTRA SPECIAL "FREEBIE" for THIS WEEKEND ONLY!  Yep, for the FIRST TIME, the freebie will be a "die AND a stamp"!  So, you will get this ADORABLE set in your packages with your purchase for THIS WEEKEND ONLY starting Friday, Janurary 17th, through Sunday, January 19th, ending at midnight PST.  If you miss out on it, Emma will have it available for purchase in her store, beginning on Monday, January 20th.  Here's a pic of this cute set:



Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see what she and the rest of the design team have created for you today!

Glora said...

This is ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!!! I don't know if I could have kept that itty bitty pink piece inside the "o" from getting lost in the puzzle/glue back together process but WOW I LOVE how it turned out!!!! What a fun technique and a super awesome way to show off this new die set in its fullness. I could envision how the die came after seeing your card even before Emma sneaked it in her video. Anyway, awesome job! LOVE it! You ROCK! Hugs- Glora
