You're My Most Favorite....{Trendy Twine Candy Tin}

Good Morning everyone!
 I am up on the Trendy Twine blog today with another sweet treat :)

 Have you started making Valentine's Day treats yet?
Need some more inspiration??
 I have another fun gift giving idea to share using a Candy Tin and the newly released Pinkberry Sorbet Trendy Twine!
These Candy Tin's from the Trendy Twine store are perfect for adding wrapped chocolate nuggets. I was able to fill my tin with 12 chocolates, wrapping each one in a piece of 1x3" designer paper from We Are Memory Keepers. Next to decorate the outside of the  tin, I wrapped a piece of beautiful White 7/8" Embroidery Satin Ribbon around the tin and tied it in a bow.
For my sentiment, I used both a stamp set and some dies from My Creative Time. I wanted to add more than just a twine bow to hold my tag onto my tin, so I die cut a small heart into the top layer of my tag. Next using small pieces of Pinkberry Sorbet Trendy Twine, I added them to the back of my twine so it covered the entire die cut.  The color of the twine fills the die cut so beautifully, don't you think??? This is one of my favorite techniques when playing around with my twine.
To finish off my project, I tied the tag onto the ribbon using a double bow of Pinkberry Sorbet Trendy Twine  and added some matching enamel dots.

MCT......Scrapping the Little Things {February Project Life}

Good Morning everyone!!
Welcome to "Scrapping the Little Things" with My Creative Time
where we share Project Life, Smash book or Scrapbook LO's using MCT stamps and dies!

Ok I have to admit that I am not much of a scrapbooker, I am trying and....I do however hope to change that a bit for this year and I will continue working on adding to my PL book. Right now it is pretty empty except for the past projects I have done for My Creative Time BUT I am going to put it on my list of projects to do at least once a month. I will share my PL cards for January (when I finish them..LOL) but my project for today is my February PL cards. I hope to get some pictures of my boys and maybe ever a family picture to add to these.
I have to keep telling myself that an overload of embellishing for these cards do not necessarily mean they look better. Right??? I am actually pretty proud of the way these turned out. Can not wait to add some pictures too :)
So let me walk you through them.
The first card uses the new Heart 2 Heart Love Frame and I popped it up using some foam pop dots. My hope is to maybe get a picture of me and the hubs to slide into it. I added the date using the Fun Number Dies and for some added texture on the heart, I stamped the Grainy Wood Background onto it.
The next 2 cards are the ones that I will add the pictures of my boys to. They are simple 3x4 Journal cards with 2 of the new Heart 2 Heart Love Frame dies on them. 
The final card is my favorite maybe :) I used the Social Media Die to hastag my sentiment...how fun is that! I again used the same heart from the new release....LOVE it.... and placed it on 2 Bunch of Fun Circle Dies. I then added the sentiment to the Stitched Decorative Banner Die and embellished with some enamel dots.

Have a Sweet Valentine's Day.......{Tag it Tuesday w/MCT}

Good Morning and welcome to 
Tag it Tuesday w/My Creative Time!

Today the DT will be sharing tag projects using of course My Creative Time stamps and dies!
Since Valentine's Day is fast approaching, I thought I would share some sweet Valentine treats using 2 newly released stamp and die sets. Hopefully for all you MCT fan's, this will give you another fun ans easy idea for when your HAPPY MAIL arrives :)

So here is what I made....
I LOVE making candy sticks and adding a fun tag to the tops. Not only do they look awesome but give alittle extra surprise to the person receiving them. For these, I started out using the Just Tags Dies, cutting the bottom layer using kraft cardstock and the top layer using pink polka dot paper. Next I used the new heart die from the Heart 2 Heart Love Frame and die cut 3 using some red cardstock.  I popped the hearts up onto the center of the tags and then arranged the sentiments to fit around the heart. I used the sentiments from the new You Make My Heart Smile stamp set, placing one on top of the heart and the other below the heart. Next I used the banner die from the Just Simply Live set and die cut that out using white cardstock. My "valentine" sentiment fit perfectly across that die!

Here is another angle of the tags. Simple to put together and perfect for class parties or to give to the kiddo's :)

And here is what the candy sticks look like all put together. I added some holiday M & M's to the skinny candy bags and then tied the tags to the tops of the bags using some Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine. 

I used the current MCT Designer's Challenge picture for my inspiration. Pulling the kraft, pink and red colors from the picture as well as the heart :)
Here are the details for this challenge~ You still have plenty of time to play along!!!
~Please use the following photo inspiration or the sketch (you can see the sketch HERE) OR you can use BOTH!
~Project must feature at least ONE My Creative Time product.
~ You can make any project of your choice.
~ Deadline for challenge will be on Feb 3, 2015 @ midnight PST.

Here is my hop project.....I hope you think it is as sweet as I do :)
When I saw the "Hello honey" sentiment on the freebie stamp set, I immediately though of some honey sticks I just purchased at the store. I packaged them up to add to a tea basket for a friend. I used the Just Tags die, cut the bottom layer in kraft cardstock and added the top layer using some honeycomb designer paper from Recollections. Next I stamped my sentiment (from the I Love You Beary Much set) and added some gold enamel dots to the bottom.
Using the new Bear Dies, the teddy bear from the Beary Special Thoughts Stamp Set and some white cardstock, I stamped the bear and then die cut him out. I added some color to him using my copic markers and then popped him up onto the front of my tag. 
To finish my gift set up, I wrapped 4 honey sticks with some yellow sheer ribbon and tied the tag with a bow to the front.
A cute and fun way to give otherwise boring honey sticks.....right??!

For this card, I started with a piece of Kraft cardstock, a layer of white cardstock and then a piece of pattern paper die cut using my FAVORITE die the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die. Then using the new hearts from the Heart 2 Heart Love Frame Dies, I die cut 2 hearts in red pattern paper, one heart in gray pattern paper and the "love" layer in some pretty white and pink pattern paper. I arranged them on my card, popping the center heart up with some foam pop dots. To keep the sentiment simple, I die cut the "U" using the Lowercase Fun Dies.

MCT 39th New Release Day 3 Sneaks

Good Morning and welcome to Day 3 of sneaks for the new
My Creative Time 39th Release!
What did you think of yesterday's sneaks and projects??? AWESOME right!!!!
Can't wait to share today's projects! You are going to LOVE them to pieces :)

The DT will be showcasing the new sets....
The Last Pieces of Our Family & Stitched Puzzle Pieces Dies
OMG you are going to flip when you see these..... LOL They are AWESOME!
So for today I have 2 more cards to share....hope you like them!!!

For my first card, I went CAS to show off those adorable new puzzle pieces. Aren't they fun??? There are 4 in this set and when put together make a square. I used 2 of the puzzle pieces and stamped the "you" and "me" on each piece. Then using the heart from the Happy Thoughts Stamp set, I stamped that in the middle so when they are joined you can see the cute heart :)
To add some more detail to my card, I stamped the same heart onto some kraft cardstock in a diagonal pattern and then die cut the piece out using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die. I popped that all up onto a kraft cardstock card base.
To finish my card off, I stamped that adorable new sentiment under the puzzle pieces.

MCT Products Used:
The Last Pieces of Our Family (New Release)
 Stitched Puzzle Pieces Dies (New Release)

***************************************
For my next card, I used the other set of puzzle pieces that come in the new Stitched Puzzle Pieces Die set~ that oh so cute heart pieces.
For this card, I started with a white card base, added a layer of red cardstock and then my pattern paper die cut using~ yes again~ the totally awesome Stitched Rectangular Frame Die.
Then using the same red cardstock, I die cut all the heart puzzle pieces and placed them aside to add my sentiment, which I stamped on an extended piece of white cardstock I die cut using the Slider Treat Box Die. Once that was adhered to my card mat, I arranged the heart pieces somewhat close together so you can tell it is a heart but added some dimension to them by popping a few up with foam and gluing one down. Some added enamel dots and my card is all done.

MCT 39th New Release Day 2 Sneaks

Good Morning and welcome to Day 2 of sneaks for the new
My Creative Time 39th Release!
What did you think of yesterday's sneaks and projects??? AWESOME right!!!!
Well today we have more :)

The DT will be showcasing the new set....
You Make My Heart Smile 
this set, complete with a bunch of awesome new sentiments also comes with coordinating dies!
I have 2 projects to share using this set, a card and a sweet Valentine's Day treat!

My love shaker card was made using the frame from the 4x4 Journal Die + More set, which I stamped using the Grainy Background Stamp. I popped the frame up with some foam tape, filled it with some clear seed bead and some smaller heart die cuts. Before adding it to my card base, I used the Stitched Tab Die to stamp my sentiment. This whole embellishment piece was then added to my card base which consists of a kraft card, white card layer and a piece of decorative designer paper cut using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die.
Using the coordinating paper, I die cut the large heart from the Stitched Sweetheart & XOXO Dies and then using the new release "heart" die, I cut it 4 times to add some layers to the letters and to pop it up onto the front of my heart alittle more.

You Make My Heart Smile (New Release)

My next project are some cute lollipop holders that would be so fun to make for the kiddos classroom parties. 
For these, I used the Stitched Lollipop Holder and cut them out using designer paper from my stash (sorry not sure the name). I added the big Stitched Sweetheart Die to the top of the lollipop holder and a smaller one onto the heart using the same pattern paper. Then using the new "Be mine" dies, I added them to the front of the lollipop die.
Tied on some Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine and these are ready to be given to my valentines :)
