MCT February Sneak Peek #2


It's Day 2 of the My Creative Time February Sneak Peeks!  Today we are showcasing a great new stamp and die set for St. Patrick's Day called I'm a Lucky Girl!  Being Irish, my family always celebrates St. Patrick's Day in my house with a traditional corned beef dinner.  I thought it would be really fun to use the dies in this new set to make napkin rings!


To make the band part of my ring, I actually used the wavy Fun Stitched Edges die.  It made a cute asymmetrical ring.  There are four parts to this adorable hat die from I'm a Lucky Girl:  the hat, band, clover, and a teeny buckle.  The buckle was too intricate to work with my felt, but it sure is adorable with paper!  I just used some hot glue to put this all together, and it works great!  Quick and easy!

***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...
