MCT 35th Edition Release Blog Hop!


Are you ready?  It's hopping and shopping day!  All of the wonderful My Creative Time stamps and dies that we have been sneaking this week can now be purchased!  If you just happened upon my blog, you might want to head over to Emma's blog, which is the beginning of the hop.

It was a little bittersweet making today's card.  I'm driving my son five hours away, to CalArts, on Monday for him to start his freshman year of college.  I thought this would be the perfect card to mail to him after I get home.  I started with a 4 1/4" card base and added a 4" blue square made with the die from 4x4 Journal Die + More.  Then I added a fun chevron strip that I made with a die from the new Tag Die Layers.  The dies in this new set are not only great for tags, but also make wonderful accents for other projects! 


How cute is this polaroid camera???  All of the little pieces were made with dies from the new Picture Perfect set!  I added Glossy Accents on the two smallest black circles to make it look more realistic.


Now this is my favorite part!  Picture Perfect comes with this teeny-tiny polaroid die.  I printed a picture of Eric and me small enough to fit in it (a little less than an inch in width).  Then I popped on a heart made with a die from 4x4 Journal Die + More.  Isn't it the cutest little thing?


There are several different word dies in Picture Perfect and the tiny size of them is just adorable!

Here's a closer look at the three sets I used on today's card.  All of them are available for purchase now in the My Creative Time Store



** Freebie Stamp **


Since the last release was such a success, Emma wanted to show her appreciation by giving away this FUN new stamp to the FIRST 150 shoppers!  Yep, you head that right, this stamp will go to the FIRST 150 shoppers for FREE!  You do NOT have to add it to your cart; Emma and her shipping crew will automatically include it in your package, but ONLY to the first 150 shoppers!  IF you happen to come through AFTER the 150th shopper, no worries because this will be available for sale! Emma knows there will be questions on whether YOU made the first 150.  After the first 150 shoppers come through, then you will see this set available for purchase along with the new release items!

Awesome remembrance for your son. He's going to be happy to get mail and he's going to love the pic of both of you. Having them leave is tough, but sadly is a part of life that can't be avoided. We've been empty nesters for 10 years now. It's been a joyous time, but in a different way.

Ohhhhh Katie!!! What a bittersweet moment indeed. But this card is just wonderful! Love that pic of you two. Have fun and take in every moment. Hugs to you and lots of luck to Eric!!!

Nancy said...

Katie, I know that this card was made with lots of tears and gut wrenching emotions knowing that Eric will be five hours away which is a world apart for you. Always hard letting them go but knowing that he is following his dream helps a little. Take care of yourself and have a safe trip driving him to school. Sending you lots of hugs.
