50th Birthday Card


I made this fun card for a friend's 50th birthday, creating the background using the Papertrey Ink Boho Rounds stamp set.  I cut the numbers from the Cricut Nursery Rhymes cartridge and finished off the sentiment with a stamp from PTI's Big Birthday Wishes!

MCT 67th Edition Release Blog Hop & Sale

Welcome to the My Creative Time 67th Edition Release Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the very talented Jessica.  If you just happened upon here, you might want to head over to Emma's blog, to the beginning of the hop.  This is a very fun release, and I hope you are as excited about it as we are!


I had fun making another treat box using the Stitched Favor Box for our hop today!  I just love this die!  It makes it so easy to make a quick little treat or favor.  How fun would it be to whip up a bunch of these this fall for your kids' teachers or, if you are a teacher like me, for your colleagues?  I used some fun patterned paper from Echo Park's Teacher's Pet collection and added a tag made with a die from Fun Stitched Tag Dies, heat embossed with a sentiment from Write On.  So easy!

Here's a closer look at the Stitched Favor Box.  It is available now in the My Creative Time Store


Starting THIS Friday, May 19th, 2017 @ 8AM PST, our "Freebie" for this release is the PRETTY  Stitched Petals Die.  It will be given to the FIRST 100 shoppers!  If you are one of the first 100 shoppers, it will be automatically added to your package at the time of packaging/shipping.  Once the first 100 shoppers come through, the set will be available for purchase.  So if it's for sale in the store, you are not one of the 100.  No exceptions will be made.  This freebie set is not a part of the "bundle" and will be sold separately!

MCT 67th Edition Sneak Peek #4

It's our last day of the My Creative Time 67th Edition sneak peeks!  Tomorrow is the day you can finally see this awesome release in its entirety and get shopping!  But first, we have one die for you to get a glimpse of today.  We have a new treat box die called Stitched Favor Box, and it's ever so cute!


There are two things I love about this die:  it fits perfectly on a 6x6 piece of paper (I used Echo Park's Fine & Dandy here) and no adhesive is required to put it together!  There are two slits that allow you to slide the tabs into!  This would be extremely easy to make for an event such as a baby shower and throw a few piece of candy inside.

I decorated mine with a cute little birthday tag today.  I created it using the Mini Chalkboard Tags set.  But really, the possibilities with this die are endless!

MCT 67th Edition Sneak Peek #3

It's time for some more of the My Creative Time 67th Edition sneak peeks!  We have two new die sets for you to get a glimpse of today.  The first is Scallop Stitched Square Dies, a fabulous new set of, well, scallop and square stitched dies!  So fun!  And second, is our freebie for this month, Stitched Petals Die.  This is such a unique die, and it will be given free to our first 100 shoppers beginning at 8 AM PST this Friday!  


My first card showcases the Stitched Petals Die.  What's fun about this die is that is does not completely cut out a flower shape, but it definitely adds a great deal of interest to your background paper!  I embellished my flowers with little buttons made with the Stitched Button Dies.  The sentiment is from Thank You Mom.


For my second card, I decided to take advantage of the Scallop Stitched Square Dies being wired together, before I cut them apart.  I just removed the two largest ones, since they wouldn't not fit on my 4 1/4" square card.  I then was able to easily run the connected dies through my Vagabond with 6 different colors of cardstock, which allowed me to make 6 different versions of this card.  The "hi" in the center was made with the Fun Notes stamp and die set, and I added a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins for some interest.  Super easy way to make a quick set of note cards!

MCT 67th Edition Sneak Peek #2

Are you ready for another day of My Creative Time sneak peeks?  Today we have a darling set to share with you!  It's called Sea You Soon, and it is has the cutest little sea creature stamps with coordinating dies, along with lots of fun sentiments in a great font!


For my card today, I used some masking paper to mask off the outside of a circle, and then I inked up my sand and water on the inside with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in the colors listed below.  The wavy lines stamped on top of the sand are from a stamp included in this set.  I then stamped all of my cute little images, colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens, and die cut them with the coordinating dies, before adhering them to the card.  The sentiment is also from Sea You Soon!
