MCT 34th New Release Blog Hop!

Good Morning 
Welcome to the much anticipated 
34th New Release from My Creative Time!

This week has been so much fun with the DT sharing amazing projects and inspiration! But we have one more day of AWESOME~NESS! 

Now you should be coming from the VERY talented

but if you are just stopping in, make sure to head back to the start~ the AMAZING 
You are not going to want to miss a thing! She really ROCKED this release (well she always does, doesn't she?? Of course!!)

Today I get to showcase the Fun Letter Background stamp and I have 2 projects to share with you all..perfect for Back to School time!!
Here is what I made....a card and a Hand Santizer holder. Now this would surly make the first day of school and the teacher super happy! LOL! 
Let's take a closer look at these.......
First up is my card. I used the AWESOME new Fun Letter Background stamp, and stamped it onto some white card stock. Then I went about building my card on top.  I used all products from MCT except the apple which I cut using my cameo and a file I found in the Silhouette Store. For the paper, I used the 3x4 Journal Die and then just added the paper top using one of the Fun Stitched Edges Die. For the lines on the paper, I used the Get Schooled Stamp set! Always fun to mix in older stamps and dies with the new release!!!! Finally, I used the back to school sentiment from the All Around Everything stamp set and the adorable pencil from the All Around Everything Accessories set. I colored the pencil with my copics, popped it up onto my card and tied some Trendy Twine around the paper to add a little bit more embellishments.  Such a sweet back to school card :)

Next up is my matching Hand Sanitzer Cover. A while back I designed this file and made some cute Christmas Hand Sanitizer covers using my PKS. We all know how much teachers use this germ juice so I used my file again for a back to school one to match my card!
I used the Fun Letter Background stamp again on the die cut panels of my project and then stamped the matching sentiment for the front again. Once the Hand Sanitzer Cover was put together,  I closed it off with some more Trendy Twine.

***If you are interested in this file, I have placed it into my Etsy Store for purchase HERE. It is very easy to put together! The files includes the base, 2 panels (one for the front and one for the back and a center holder for a small Bath and Body Works Hand Sanitizer. These are ALWAYS on sale and perfect for those last minute gifts!! Plus these can be embellished to fit ANY holiday!!***
