My Creative Time February Blog Hop

Welcome to our February My Creative Time Blog Hop!  If you just happened to arrive here, you might want to start back at Emma's blog, so that you don't miss anything!  She and the design team have so many fabulous projects to share with you!


For my project today, I used the new Tag Gift Pocket Die to create gift card holders for all of the classroom champions who are participating in our school spelling bee!  I've been doing this for the last three years, and I'm thrilled to have a new type of gift card holder!  To make the tag base, I used one of the Tag Dies, along with the round tab from Stitched Round Tab, Arrow & Tag Dies.  Some May Arts Chevron Twill and a bit of hemp dressed it up.


I just love the little Tag Gift Pocket!  Before assembling it, I stamped it with one of the Spring Chicken Backgrounds.  I had printed what I wanted my tickets to stay on cardstock, so then I just stamped around them with an image from Holiday Tickets, along with a couple of stars from It's a Magical Season.  Then I die cut them with the Stitched Fun Ticket Dies.  The cute little bee is an Echo Park cut that I found in the Silhouette Online Store. 


Here's a look at all of the different colors and patterns I used.  I had to make 15 altogether.


And here it is with a gift card inside.  We give each of the classroom champs a gift card to a local bookstore.

Here is a closer look at the new die that I used on today's project.  It is now available in the My Creative Time Store!

Katie, as always I LOVE your creations! All week, they have been great. I do have a question. Did you set up an entire page of the sentiment, stamp the outline and then used your die cut? It's really cute and a great idea to personalize projects.
