MCT Trending Now.....{Party On!}

Good Morning Everyone!!!
Today I get to share another My Creative Time project with you all!
It is Trending Now....Party On!
The MCT DT will be showcasing party projects~anything using banners, pom poms...etc
My son is turning 12 in a few weeks so I thought I would use the AWESOME newly released gift bag die to make a project. Of course when it comes time to give this to him, it will be filled with some yummy treats and probably a gift card or two :)
To make this, I used the beautiful designer paper from Lawn Fawn and die cut the gift bag die. Next I added the super fun banner die cut and added it to the front of the gift bag. Since he is turning 12, I used the number dies from the Stitched 4x6 Journal Die set and finished the bag off with a simple tag. For that tag, I used the newly released Chalkboard Birthday stamp set and stamped it onto the Fun Stitched Tag Die. Tied it all onto the ribbon handle with some Totally White Trendy Twine and this gift bag is all ready to be filled for the birthday boy!

Lawn Fawn~ High Seas designer paper

You're my HERO! {Trendy Twine DT}

Good Morning everyone! It is my DT day over on the
Today I get to share another project using the spotlighted products of the month~

Father's Day is coming up very soon and these 3x3 Kraft Boxes make the perfect box to add a special gift for dad! 


To make my project, I used designer paper from Carta Bella~Boy oh Boy and added panels to all 5 sides. Next I wrapped some Krazy for Kraft Trendy Twine 2 times around the box and added a fun matching clothes pin to hold it in place. Using a die and stamp from My Creative Time, I made a sentiment tag and clipped it into the clothes pin.


Tying off the twine with a simple bow around the clothes pin and my project is complete. 
Simple yes but perfect for any occasion~ don't you think???

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

MCT 43rd New Release Sneak Day 2

  Good Morning and welcome to Day 2 of sneaks for the new
My Creative Time 43rd New Release!
What did you think of yesterday's sneaks?? Pretty AWESOME right? Well today the DT has ton's more to share!!!!

Today we  will be showcasing projects using the new set~
Light The Candles
And here is the projects I made using this set! I am LOVING all the fun party themed sentiment and dies in this set and thought I would make a cute gift card holder and treat!

To start off, I will show you a close-up of the treat using the Treat Slider Box Die. I stamped the cutie sentiment onto the slider box and die cut 2 of the cherries that come with this new release. To add some extra detail to them, I used my glossy accents to make them shiny. I wanted to add some leaves to the tops of the cherries so I used the Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies. Next I wrapped some chocolate nuggets and stamped the XOXO that is part of the Light The Candles set.

Here is a close-up of the gift card holder I made. If you do not own this die yet the ~Embossed Gift Card Holder Die~ you have to grab it from the store!!!!! I LOVE using this for those last minute gifts. 
Anyways I used the technique that Jennifer McGuire shared not to long ago called Spotlight  Die Cutting, you can see her video HERE
After stamping, die cutting and stamping again, I popped up the candles onto the sentiment using some foam dots. For some extra sparkle on the flames, I used my Wink of Stella pen and then added some glossy accents on top.
I finished this gift card off with some hemp twine and a few random die cut hearts. Couldn't help but pop those cuties up too with some glossy accents :)

My Creative Time Products Used:
Light The Candles (new release)
Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies
Additional Products Used:

My Creative Time 43rd New Release!

Miss Emma has another AMAZING new release and the DT can not wait to share all of our projects with you! We all know you are going to LOVE everything in this release.
So sit back and get ready for a GREAT week of inspiration followed by our blog hop on Friday when we will show you all the entire new release and it will be available for purchase!

Today the DT will be showcasing projects using the new set~
Sweet Wishes (Freebie) & Better Together 
Here is the project I made using both of the sneak sets! I just LOVE these adorable mini coffee cups and when I saw that Emma had some fun new coffee stamps and dies I knew I had to use it for my project. I started my project off by making a holder for my coffee cup. I used kraft cardstock and added some pretty designer paper over top. Then using the Tag Gift Pocket Die, I made a spot to add my gift card. Next I wrapped my mini coffee cup in some matching designer paper and added some Chocolate Cupcake Trendy Twine.
Now moving on to the new releases...... I die cut the FAB new coffee cup and stamped the matching stamp onto some white cardstock. Added my designer paper coffee wrap and stamped the cute size using an older stamp set~ You Are Perk-fect. For the sentiment on the lid of the coffee cup, I used this releases freebie~Sweet Wishes. To finish my project off, I die cut the "sweet" sentiment, also part of the freebie and adhered it to the bottom of the cup.
Filled my gift card holder with a Tim Horton's GC and added some candies to my coffee cup and I have a sweet treat to give to a friend!!
