MCT 55th Edition Sneak Peek #1

It's day 1 of My Creative Time's 55th Edition Sneak Peeks!  We've got a very fun release to share with you this week, and to start it off, we are sneaking a set that I'm really excited about!  It's called Greatest Handyman, and it has the cutest toolbox and tools dies, along with lots of darling sentiments perfect for the men in your life!


I couldn't wait to get started with these dies, and I used some red foiled cardstock to cut my toolbox, stamping it with Black StazOn ink (to keep it from smearing).  I then stamped and die cut my tools multiple times, in white for a base, silver metallic, and out of Ultra Thin Cherry Sheets from Hobby Lobby for the handles of the hammer and screwdriver.  I pieced them all together and adhered them to the back of the toolbox.

I made a raised panel, using some kraft foam behind white cardstock, with one of the MORE Stitched Rectangular Dies.  The sentiment is one of ten included in Greatest Handyman.  I added some fun "screw" brads from Recollections, and then popped up the toolbox with some dimensional adhesive.

*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 showcase on Wednesday, Emma will announce the winner in her video on Thursday, and for the set we showcase on Thursday, she will announce on Friday, 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!

Love your foiled cardstock tool box! The screws look really neat going around the toolbox, too. So very adorable. Love this new set, I think it will be good to scrapbook on pages, also with the men in our family.adnilttoh@gmail.com
