My Creative Time July New Release...Sneak Peek Day 1....{Guest Designer...Yippee}

Morning Everyone!!
I am so excited to be posting as a Guest Designer for Emma and the 
My Creative Time's July Release!
OMG it is like a crafty dream come true to be sharing all these awesome stamps and dies with you all!! And you know what...they are AMAZING!!! I SO LOVE them all!!

Welcome to Day 1 of sneaks....
Emma has decided to do things a bit differently for this release and in doing so has shared all the new stamps and dies already over on her blog HERE. She has also made the entire release available as a PRE~ORDER which will begin shipping out on Monday July 15th.That way you will all see all the FAB things you can do with your new stamps and dies and by the time we begin hopping next Wednesday, you all could have the release in your hands ready to use!! How fun is that???

So lets get on with my sneak for day 1...
I made a set of mini notebooks...3 to be exact and I would have continued making more~cause they were so fun and super easy to so~but mark my word I will be making more!!!Maybe as stocking stuffers for the kid's teachers???
Anyways here they all are...Since you will be guessing the products I used to make these cuties, I took some individual pictures so you can see each one better.

Notebook #1 would be perfect for taking notes of all the great gift ideas for your love ones, friends and teachers... Besides using a bunch of MCT products, I also added some machine stitching, 3GJ crinkle ribbon in white, a jingle bell I had laying around in my stash and some

Notebook #2 would be such a great throw in your purse type of mini....You could use it to jot down notes, phone numbers...really anything. Besides a bunch of MCT products :) I added more machine stitching~yeah I am obsessed..LOL.. a fun brad and some of the newly release

And now for notebook #3~ How fun would this be to document a trip?? Take notes on favorite places, food or what about fun facts so when you come home to scrapbook the trip all the info is right here. Yup you know what comes next....Lots of fun MCT products along with more machine stitching, a fun flower brad and some
