MCT Thoughtful Tuesday


It's Thoughtful Tuesday with My Creative Time, and I decided to pull out the beautiful Tulip Frame Die to make a "thinking of you" card.  I adhered the die cut onto a watercolor background that I created using Tim Holtz distress inks.  I then layered this onto one more layer of black cardstock, cut with one of the Stitched Square Dies Inside & Out.  The sentiment is from Mini Spring Greetings.  Since I was using a white card base, I also added a little white heart die cut, made with a die from 4x4 Journal Die + More.  I kind of like how this turned out with a sunset silhouette look!

MCT 84th Edition Release Sneak Peek #1

It's day 1 of My Creative Time's 84th Edition Sneak Peeks!  We have such a fun release for you this month, and I am so excited about today's sneak!  I know so many of us often give gift cards throughout the year, and the new Gift Card Gift Box Die is a great way to package them!


This die actually is a set of two dies - one for the bottom of the box and one for the top!  I just think it is the cutest thing!  I made mine out of some fun Halloween patterned paper so that I could use it to give a gift card for my son for Halloween.  I decorated it with the adorable ghost from the Stitched Spooky Ghost Die collection and then made a tag using stamps and dies from Open if You Dare.  So easy!


You can see how well the gift card fits inside.  There's even room to throw in some candy!

MCT Birthday Palooza



It's Birthday Palooza with My Creative Time!  Perfect timing, because I needed to make a birthday card for one of my students!  I thought she would love a shaped card, so I pulled out the MCT Party Hat Die Set and made one out of the larger party hat die.  The sentiment and bird are from Tweet Me, with the bird die from Fun Tweet Me Dies, and I used the Vintage Stitched Label Die for the sentiment!

Book Thank You Cards


We recently had a book fair at our school, and so many families were very generous in buying books for my classroom!  Luckily I had the perfect stamp and die sets for making thank you cards for them! To make this cute book shaped card, I used the Papertrey Ink Book Cover Card Die.  The stamp along the spine is from PTI's Bibliophile stamp set.  To decorate the cover I used a lot of My Creative Time products:  the "thanks" die from Hello Frame, a sentiment from Thankful Greetings, and pretty leaves from Little Stitched Leaves.


I made a lot of these cards, and I mixed up some of them by using the MCT Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies, always a favorite of mine!

Pretty Thank You


This little thank you card was inspired by one I saw by Danielle Flanders.  I loved her idea of using a stencil behind the Papertrey Ink Bitty Bouquet stamps and dies, and those little bouquets are so fun to play with!  The stencil I used is from the Heidi Swapp Stencils Minis Patterns.  The pretty sentiment is from My Creative Time's Floral Sentiments, and I also used one of the MCT's MORE Stitched Rectangular Dies for the backgrounds.

MCT Weird Holiday


It's time to celebrate a "weird holiday" with My Creative Time!  Did you know that October 20th is "Sweetest Day"?  I'm not really sure what that means, but I have the perfect My Creative Time set for the occasion:  Sweet Wishes!  I used it to die cut "sweet" and stamp my sentiment upon the cake that I made with the Birthday Cake Die.  To mix it up today, I created a z-fold card base by cutting my cardstock at the usual size of 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", and then I scored it at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4".  I thought this made for a fun different type of card for the recipient!

MCT Anything Goes


It's Anything Goes with My Creative Time!  Today I have fun birthday card that I made for one of my students' upcoming birthdays!  My school's mascot is a star, so I thought it would be fun to use one of the Bunch of Stitched Star Dies and add one of the Party Hat Dies to his head!  I made his face with a very old Peachy Keen face stamp.  Of course, he needed to be holding a little birthday cake, and the Baby Cake Die was the perfect size!  This is a big card to accommodate the big star, 6" x 6", and I used one of the More Stitched Edges Dies to give it a fun torn border down one side.  I finished it off with a sentiment from Time to Celebrate, stamped onto a banner made with one of the Stitched Decorative Banner Dies!

For my project today, I made a card using the gorgeous new Little Stitches Leaves Dies.  I love these dies!  They are the perfect size and have such beautiful detail!  This was a simple card to make - I just put a border of brown cardstock and plaid patterned paper down the edge and then scattered some falling leaves in some pretty fall colors.  I finished it off with the perfect sentiment from Belly Band Sentiments.

MCT 83rd Edition Release Sneak Peek #4

Are you ready for one last day of My Creative Time sneak peeks?  Today we are sneaking one last adorable die set:  Little Stitched Leaves!


Little Stitched Leaves is such a sweet little set for fall!  It includes 3 beautiful leaf dies and 2 stem dies.  For my card today, I did a nested die cut technique with the leaf dies, so that they would be nice and flat.  If you haven't ever seen this technique in action, I once made a video using it, which you can see here.  I then adhered one of the stems on top, and then added the "thanks" die cut from Happy Thoughts, which I layered up 3 times to make it nice and thick.  This whole piece is created on a rectangle that was trimmed with one of the MORE Stitched Rectangular Dies.  I can see these little leaf dies dressing up all sorts of projects!

*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...

MCT 83rd Edition Release Sneak Peek #3

We've got another sneak peek of the My Creative Time 83rd Edition release for you!  Today we are sneaking a new lollipop holder die for fall:  the Pumpkin Lollipop Holder Die! 


I just love the shape of this die!  It's so adorable!  I had the cutest 6" x 6" plaid patterned paper that I wanted to use for my project.  The die is longer than 6", so I just cut it from orange cardstock, and then cut just the front and back with the plaid and adhered it on.  So easy!  I added on the included stem and leaves and also a tag made with the Teeny Tag Layering Dies, stamped with a sentiment from Teeny Tag Holidays.  How cute would this look on your Thanksgiving table?

MCT 83rd Edition Release Sneak Peek #2

Are you ready for another day of the My Creative Time 83rd Edition Release sneak peeks?  Today we have a new edition in the cute tag die series to share with you:  Cute Pumpkin Tag Die!


Cute Pumpkin Tag Die can take you throughout the fall season, being perfect for Halloween, general fall, and Thanksgiving!  To turn mine into a Halloween tag, I added an adorable jack-o-lantern face using the Pumpkin Face Die from our last release.  If you did not get this die as a freebie last month, it's available in the My Creative Time store right now for $2.99!  I just think this tag is so cute!  There is actually another leaf die included, which I did not use.  


Since I wanted to use the fun plaid patterned paper for the background, I die cut the inside pumpkin again out of plain orange paper so that I'd have a spot to write a note.  Since all of the papers I used are from a patterned paper pack and not cardstock, it doesn't make the tag too thick at all.

*Sneak Peek Giveaway***

MCT 83rd Edition Release Sneak Peek #1

It's day 1 of My Creative Time's 83rd Edition Sneak Peeks!  We have such a fun release for you this month, and I am so excited about today's sneak!  Made with Love is perfect for anybody who likes to give handmade gifts.  This set includes stamps and dies that will help you create darling tags for gifts that are handcrafted, baked, hand sewn, quilted, knitted, crocheted, stitched, and more!  I needed a set like this, and I know I will get a lot of use out of it!


How cute is this little tag?  I stamped the balls of yarn in colors to coordinate with the yarn of the scarf I crocheted.  The tag has a layer, which I used here, but it looks really cute without it too.


What I have really needed when giving away a crocheted item is a way to share the fiber contents and care instructions.  Now I can do this so easily!  On the back of the tag, I stamped the cute little icons and words and then wrote out the instructions for the recipient.  Emma did a great job of making this die perfectly symmetrical so that you can cut it twice and glue them back to back, avoiding having to use the messy back of the die cut.

*Sneak Peek Giveaway***

MCT Whatever Wednesday


It's Whatever Wednesday with My Creative Time! Today I made a little post-it note holder for my niece Mary using the awesome Note Card Holder Die!  I love this die - it's so perfect for making quick, adorable post-it note holders!  I used all three of the included dies:  the one for the main base, which I cut in turquoise, and then the two layers (the patterned piece and the white circle).  I also pulled out my Uppercase Fun Dies to cut out her initial, coating it with some Glossy Accents to make it shine!

MCT Weird Holiday


It's time to celebrate a "weird holiday" with My Creative Time!  Did you know that September 6th is "Read a Book Day"?  Neither did I!  But as a book lover and a teacher, I'm happy to encourage others to read!  I made this card using the cute pile of books stamp from the So Many Books stamp and die set.  I pieced together my sentiment using stamps from So Many Books for "read a book" and Prehistoric Holidays for "happy" and "day!"  The cute little hearts were made with dies from 4x4 Journal Die + More.  I watercolored both the books and the background paper with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and then trimmed the background piece with one of the MORE Stitched Rectangular Dies.

MCT Tag It Tuesday


It's Tag It Tuesday with My Creative Time!  We just started school this week, and I made a couple of these tags to go with little gifts for my teammates.  They were really quick to make with my MCT products!  I started with the Tag Die, cutting the white base, along with brown and patterned layers for the left side.  I then stamped the cute books from So Many Books onto Strathmore Bristol cardstock, colored them with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens, die cut them with the coordinating dies, and popped them up onto the tag with dimensional adhesive.  The sentiment is from You're All Write.  A We R Memory Keepers Wide Eyelet and a little twine finished it off!

MCT Anything Goes!


It's Anything Goes with My Creative Time!  Today I have a pick-me-up card to share that I made for a friend.  In June, I went to "The Coloring Challenge Road Trip" class with Kathy Racoosin.  While there, the sweet Maria from cardbomb.com gave each of us a little goodie bag, and this heat embossed background was in mine.  I had fun inking it up with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon, and Blueprint Sketch for this card!  After inking up the "hugs" die cut from the Fun Notes stamp and die set, I realized it was too busy on top of the background, so I used one of the More Stitched Circles Dies to cut a circle out of the background.  That left a nice white space for the "hugs," "sending lots of," which I heat embossed on black cardstock, and a couple of hearts, which I die cut out of the negative space using heart dies from Summer Vibes.

Exploding Birthday Box


My little boy turned TWENTY-THREE last week!  Where does the time go?  I wanted to make him something a little different for his birthday card this year, and I found this cool Explosion Box Birthday Card by Lori Whitlock that I thought was super cute! I cut it using my Cricut Maker.  I dressed up the outside with a fun stamp from Papertrey Ink's In the Bag stamp set, and on top I added a die cut made with My Creative Time's Stitched Zig Zag Dies and was able to die cut my son's age using the Pretty Bold Number Dies.


Here's a look at what you see when you open the box.  The sides fall down to reveal a cake!


On one of the flaps I stamped a sentiment from MCT's Chalkboard Birthday.

MCT 82nd Edition Release Sneak Peek #3

We've got another sneak peek of the My Creative Time 82nd Edition release for you!  Today we are sneaking a new die set that is perfect for making an adorable Halloween treat:  the Witch Hat Topper Die! 


This die set is so cute and so EASY for making treat bag toppers!!!  I used all of the dies included to make my bag topper on my project here:  the witch hat, which is a double piece that folds at the top and sandwiches your bag in the middle, giving it a nice clean look from the back, the band, the buckle, and the cute spider! It would be so easy to reproduce these for a classroom or a party!  I didn't find any Halloween candy in the store to put into my bag, so I made these cute Mummy Milanos that I found on Pinterest instead!

MCT 82nd Edition Release Sneak Peek #2

Are you ready for another day of the My Creative Time 82nd Edition Release sneak peeks?  Today we have a really fun Halloween themed stamp and die set to share with you:  Witchie Witchie!


Witchie Witchie contains the cutest little tombstone die that comes with a layering die and an outline stamp, so there are multiple ways to use it!  You can see on my card I used both dies so that I could have tombstones of two different sizes, with stitching on one and the stamp on the other.  This set has other dies too, including the little "EEK" and "RIP." It also has a ton of fun sentiments that you can use on the tombstones or on any projects!  I watercolored my background and added a spooky tree stamp from the older Spooky Time set.  The little bats were made from dies from the older Wicked Fun Dies set.

MCT 82nd Edition Release Sneak Peek #1

It's day 1 of My Creative Time's 82nd Edition Sneak Peeks!  We have a fun and spooky release to share with you this week!  First off is our freebie for this month:  Pumpkin Face Die!  It is free with your order this Friday, August 17, 2018, if you are one of the first 50 shoppers, beginning at 8 AM PST.  Once 50 shoppers come through, it will be available for purchase.


I thought it would be fun to make a big pumpkin to use with this new face die, so I pulled out the Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies, and cut one of them 5 times, adhering them together.  For my stem, I used a part of the doghouse from Loyal Friends, and the leaves are from A Thankful Heart.  I even inked up the edges of all of the pieces with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.  I haven't done that for a while!  I love how the Pumpkin Face Die made the perfect face for this pumpkin.  Next, I adhered the whole thing to a background made with one of the Stitched Postage Frame Dies and finished off this card with a sentiment from Spooky & Creepy Night.

MCT Inspire Me Wednesday


It's another Inspire Me Wednesday with My Creative Time!  The inspiration for today's card came from this adorable card from Lexa Levana.  How cute to have popsicles falling from the sky?  And the popsicles from Anything is Popsicle are so versatile!  They are dies, so you can use cardstock, use all of the fun layers, or have fun inking them up, like I did today with Tim Holtz Distress Inks!  I also inked up a bit of the background before adding one of the sentiments from this set.  I finished off the card with some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins.

MCT Manly Monday


It's Manly Monday with My Creative Time, and today I made a little encouragement card.  I used a Stitched Restroom Peeps Die and a die from Have a Super Day!, along with a zigzag die from Tag Die Layers.  "To" and "From" are from the Just Tags set (although I think the newer version of this set just comes with the dies), and the main sentiment is from Have a Super Day!

MCT Tag It Tuesday


It's Tag It Tuesday with My Creative Time!  During our last release I made a birthday card with the new Summer Vibes stamp and die set.  I really liked how it turned out, so I decided to take the same layout and turn it into a tag!  I used the Chunky Stitched Tag Dies for the tag base. I then stamped the cute little coconut drink and summer banner onto Strathmore Bristol paper and colored them with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens. "Happy" is one of the many sentiment stamps included in Summer Vibes.  "Summer" is from the A Sloth Holiday set.
